All opposition to the man once derided as the Prince of Nothing has vanished or been vanquished. Their leaders slain, the heathen Fanim have fled in disarray. One final march will bring the Holy War to the fabled city of Shimeh. But so very much has changed. Anasurimbor Kellhus, the Warrior-Prophet, now leads the Men of the Tusk. The cuckolded sorcerer Achamian serves as his tutor, betraying his school to keep safe the man he believes can prevent the Second Apocalypse. The Scylvendi barbarian, Cnaiur, succumbs finally to madness. The Consult, sensing the endgame of millennia of planning, work frantically to prepare for the coming of the No-God. The final reckoning is at hand. Faceless assassins will strike in the dead of night. Kings and Emperors will fall. The sorcerous Schools will be unleashed.

En este último volumen de la trilogía, el Padirajah ha sido asesinado y los infieles Fanim han huido. Una última marcha llevará la Guerra Santa a la Ciudad del Último Profeta. Pero han cambiado tantas cosas... Valiéndose de una extraordinaria percepción, Anasûrimbor Kellhus ha conquistado los corazones de todos. Sólo el bárbaro Cnaiür y el hechicero Achamian siguen albergando dudas. Pero si Cnaiür se adentra cada vez más en la locura, Achamian se siente llamado a entregar los secretos de la Gnosis. No sólo debe proteger al hombre que le robó a su mujer, sino que debe enseñarle la hechicería más poderosa al mayor intelecto que haya existido jamás. La hora de la verdad está cerca. Asesinos sin rostro golpean en la oscuridad de la noche. Caerán reyes y emperadores, y Anasûrimbor Kellhus se enfrentará al fin con su padre. Si Kellhus pudo cambiar toda una Guerra Santa en un año, ¿qué habrá hecho Moënghus en treinta? ¿Qué significa su Pensamiento de las Mil Caras?. Fantasía épica.

Fantastic ending to the Prince of Nothing series. The last book start off where the last book left off and finishes up the tale. It was great seeing the characters grow and change during the trials and tribulations they all experience. Each character is very unique, complex, and well written. While the plot line was nothing amazing, there are some very interesting aspects that this last book reveals. It is a great series that I would highly recommend. ( )

I love this trilogy. Right up there with Thomas Covenant and Lord of the Rings. Simply magnificent. ( )

One of Bakker's many impressive talents in these books is the ability to spend page after page on the inner life of virtually any character, without it feeling like it hurts the pacing or halts the story. Somehow, the story seems always to progress, even when a character is busy having thoughts -- thoughts he or she has often had variations of dozens of times before, to boot.

The world building is also staggering, as evidenced by the 100+ page glossary in this third volume where the first two only had some small name and place registers. It includes several page long retellings of ancient wars, nations and organisations, often done with an in-world charm and sense of realism by sprinkling in things like how this event has lead to a common idiom, or by haughtily insisting some minor detail of common misconception is true when the reader of the novels know surely it is not. Putting this extended glossary here, when the reader has already familiarised themselves with the main cast in two thick novels and presumably no longer simply need an overview of who is who in the story, is another small stroke of genious. Though I'd recommend pausing, perhaps a third or so of the way into the actual novel, to read through the entire glossary. It contains no spoilers for the third volume as far as I can see, and the background information should be helpful, especially with giving context to Achamian's dreams and Esmenet's reading.

To get back to the actual narrative, it delivers satisfying conclusions to nearly every character's arc (well, there was one minor one that left me slightly wanting, but it worked), and sets up another, much larger conflict on the horizon without that feeling like it cheats this of a proper ending. In fact, the end scene is so magnificently Biblical in intensity and feel, I think it will stay with me as a masterpiece of iconic fantasy -- akin to Gandalf facing Durin's Bane at Moria, the faun by the lone lantern greeting a small girl in the snowy woods of Narnia, or the fate of Eddard Stark.

Be forewarned, though, this series is grim, cynical and brutal. And if you want happy endings, look elsewhere. ( )

I should have died on the battlefield before they reached Shimeh! Yes, I expected the lights and flashes and booms when the sorcerers finally began the battle. It was the verbal equivalent of your typical action movie. But, after all this blood, sweat, and metaphysical tears I expected to understand the explanation of what was going on! It may have been clear to Bakker, but this wizard is limping on to another fantasy world. ( )

In pursuing yonder what they have lost, they encounter only the nothing they have. In order not to lose touch with the everyday dreariness in which, as irremediable realists, they are at home, they adapt the meaning they revel in to the meaninglessness they flee. The worthless magic is nothing other than the worthless existence it lights up.
--THEODOR ADORNO, MINIMA MORALIA 
All progressions from a higher to a lower order are marked by ruins and mystery and a residue of nameless rage. So. Here are the dead fathers.

There had been a time, for Achamian, when the future had been a habit, something belonging to the hard rhythm of his days toiling in his father's shadow.
