- This is the third in a trilogy I began a few weeks ago, in an effort to read older fantasy.

- Elantris by Brandon Sanderson
Summary from GoodReads:
In the final novel of this brilliant epic trilogy, Reichert weaves together all the diverse plot strands she created in The Last of the Renshai and The Western Wizard. Colbey, Renshai warrior, hero, and teacher, finally accepts the possibility that he must take on the role of the Western Wizard. Only time will tell whether he and his allies can avert the end of all the worlds.
Goodness gracious, this trilogy has me going a bit crazy with love. I liked it after the first book, really liked it after the second and this third book – it has me bonkers!
Twists and turns take us into the final moments before Colbey is to become the Western Wizard. When he is, he does it on his own terms. While reading this book I couldn’t help but think of all the assumptions I made about where the story would lead when I got this far and how many of them were completely, utterly wrong.
Seeing Law and Chaos, Good and Evil, all up against one another, going through the eighth trial, watching Colbey making decisions that may or may not bring about the Ragnarok … and so much more. This book was filled with battles, climaxes of storylines that left me wanting more and when I finally read the last page all I could think was.. “Thank goodness there’s another trilogy to dig into!”.
I’ve recently learned that MZR is writing three prequels to Isaac Asimov’s I, Robot, and after losing myself in the world of the Wizards, I cannot wait to see what that series will do as well. I have complete confidence in her writing ability and her attention to detail. So very thrilled I was introduced to this writer!
