"Vaelin Al Sorna must help his queen reclaim her Realm. Only his enemy has a dangerous new collaborator, one with powers darker than Vaelin has ever encountered... "The Ally is there, but only ever as a shadow, unexplained catastrophe or murder committed at the behest of a dark and vengeful spirit. Sorting truth from myth is often a fruitless task." After fighting back from the brink of death, Queen Lyrna is determined to repel the invading Volarian army and regain the independence of the Unified Realm. Except, to accomplish her goals, she must do more than rally her loyal supporters. She must align herself with forces she once found repugnant--those who possess the strange and varied gifts of the Dark--and take the war to her enemy's doorstep. Victory rests on the shoulders of Vaelin Al Sorna, now named Battle Lord of the Realm. However, his path is riddled with difficulties. For the Volarians have a new weapon on their side, one that Vaelin must destroy if the Realm is to prevail: a mysterious Ally with the ability to grant unnaturally long life to his servants. And defeating one who cannot be killed is a nearly impossible challenge, especially when Vaelin's blood-song, the mystical power that has made him the epic fighter he is, has gone ominously silent"--Provided by publisher.… (més)

Ugh, maybe I just wasn't in the right mood for epic fantasy, but it ended up being epically confusing with too many characters and some weird switches. Who was that again?

Also the end is confusing and abrupt. ( )

A rather unsatisfying ending, I couldn't remember who half the characters were at any given point, and is about 100 pages too long. ( )

Net als het vorige deel is dit boek onderhoudend en spannend. Er gebeurt veel, voornamelijke veldslagen. Maar dat is nergens saai of vervelend. Het hoort gewoon bij het verhaal. ( )

The final book of the Raven's Shadow trilogy was well worth staying with the trilogy. I really enjoyed the balance between the major protagonists - Brother Frentis, the Red Brother, Vaelin, the Battle Lord and subject of prophecies; Lady Reva, warrior and prophetess and Queen Lyrna, the Queen of Fire and the leader of the Unified Realm against the Volarians. The Volarian Empire uses slavery, slave soldiers and terribly warped soldiers under the command of their undying leader and their evil Ally. Great action, great characters, very good epic fantasy. I enjoyed the writing style and scope of this book. In it's own way, it is original, about as original as any sword and sorcery fantasy can be these days. ( )

Queen of Fire is the last book in Anthony Ryan’s Raven’s Shadow trilogy. Although I was satisfied with the end, there was a little too much tedium in arriving there. Both the second and the third book have a lot of battles, and this last book had a particularly large amount of traveling on top of that. I still enjoyed it for the most part, but I was also happy to reach the end. I thought the first book in this series was really great and I could barely put it down, but the subsequent books didn’t hold my interest as well.

The structure is pretty close to the second book in that you have the framing story and multiple POVs alternating between the chapters. There wasn’t any particular POV that I enjoyed or disliked more than the others. Mostly, I just preferred whichever POV wasn’t in the middle of yet another battle at the moment. I think my weariness of the battles led to some of the more dramatic and emotional events having less of an impact on me than they should have.

I’m rating this at 3.5 stars, and this was a case where I had a lot of trouble deciding whether to round up or round down on Goodreads. I should probably round down based on my over-all enjoyment level, but I did think the ending was satisfying and I don’t always feel that way at the end of a series so that carries quite a bit of weight with me. For that reason, I’ve decided to be generous and round up. ( )
