Rated 3 out of 5 by from But what happens next? I have really enjoyed Barb Hendee's Noble Dead saga, and I am sad to see it end, but this book doesn't seem like a true ending. I enjoyed the storyline, it was quite an enjoyable book to read, but there was no closure at the end. The main characters, Leesil and Margaerie are off on a quest to save the world essentially. They complete their quest, head back home, and two nights later are off and running again with their companions Chap and Wynn. The End. To me, this does not seem like an ending, but rather another opening. Because now you have the questions 'Where are they going?', 'What about Wynn and Osha?' , 'What will Chap decide?' 'Are they going to succeed in their new, personally appointed quest?' While I enjoyed the book on its own, when I look at it in light of the rest of the series, it is a disappointment as an ending. I can only hope that Barb Hendee revisits these characters in another series because there seems to be too many unanswered questions at the end of this book.
