"Love The Wheel of Time? This is about to become your new favorite series." - B&N SciFi & Fantasy Blog The journey that began in The Shadow of What Was Lost and continued in An Echo of Things to Come now comes to its breathtaking conclusion in The Light of All That Falls, the spectacular final chapter of the Licanius Trilogy by acclaimed epic fantasy author James Islington. After a savage battle, the Boundary is whole again-but it may be too late. Banes now stalk the lands of Andarra, and the Venerate have gathered their armies for a final, crushing blow. In Ilin Illan, Wirr fights to maintain a precarious alliance between Andarra's factions of power. And with dark forces closing in on the capital, if he cannot succeed, the war is lost. Imprisoned and alone in a strange land, Davian is pitted against the remaining Venerate. As he desperately tries to keep them from undoing Asha's sacrifice, he struggles to come to terms with his own path and all he has learned about Caeden, the friend he chose to set free. Finally, Caeden is confronted with the reality of a plan laid centuries ago-heartbroken at how it started and devastated by how it must end.… (mer)

An extremely satisfying and worthwhile conclusion to an excellent trilogy of books! Excellent pacing and plot with some amazing characters making the whole thing as wonderful as it was.

Wow.

I'm speechless.

Okay, maybe not that speechless, but that doesn't mean I wasn't blown away by this final book in the Licanius Trilogy.

I think I've said this before, but it bears repeating: This is one of THE best Epic Fantasies ever written. I compare it to Brandon Sanderson and Brent Weeks in my head and in some ways it succeeds better where those do not. It's tighter, for one. These are three thick books that cram a hell of a lot of emotional and action-filled impact inside its pages.

Each book seems to end on a reveal that changes everything we ever thought we knew, but this one wraps back around and ties up every loose end in a way that is more than satisfying. It's more than amazing. It leaves me gutted.

Let's say something about the most interesting parts of the trilogy: It's Fantasy Time-Travel, time-manipulation battles, pocket universes, energy beings, and one of the hairiest paradox tales I've ever read. Take all the best aspects of the best time-travel SF, give it a full Fantasy treatment with full rules and the ways to bend or even break the rules, and then give us an epic battle that lasts a very long time for reasons that are shockingly brilliant and tragic and horrific.

But do you know where it really shines? The characters. So many character arcs and looming tragedies we try and try to avoid, but since we're dealing with time paradoxes and deep friendships and truly gut-wrenching events.

It pulls no punches. I was super invested and I freaked out.


I recommend this to any fantasy lover. I RECOMMEND IT. Without hesitation. With a feverish glee, even. ( )

Been waiting on this for a while and it did deliver.

It has been a while since I read the previous ones but thankfully there is a nice section at the start covering what occurred in the previous books - and I have to admit I would have struggled without this to refer back to.

It is a door-stopper at 816 pages. The middle does drag a bit, and it is sometimes difficult to keep track of who/what/when/where as the PoV and scenes jump from chapter to chapter.

With that said, there are twists which you will unlikely see coming, but they all add to the experience.

Overall, if you enjoyed the previous books, this one is a nice and satisfying conclusion to the series. Unlike other series which diminish at times as the story goes on, this one winds up on a high note. ( )
