The Herald 'The Sundering VI' by Ed Greenwood

This is part VI of The Sundering and culmination of the six part fantasy series.

Just like the other books in the series this can be read as a stand alone novel, although certain events and character may pop up in more than one book.

I found this last part a wee bit too busy. It also wasn't what I had envisaged for the last part in the series.

I would have liked to seen a better combination of the previous novels, even if only a little bit.

Greenwood has created strong characters, but perhaps not given any of them enough air time. Instead the book is bogged down by too many smaller characters, interactions between them and important monologues that were superfluous.

One of the golden rays of sunshine was Storm, mainly because her hair deserved its own prime time TV show. The tresses are magical tentacles.

Overall this has been a superb fantasy collaboration, and the blend of literary talent and authors adds to the ambitious series.
