Rated 2 out of 5 by from Couldn't even finish it I read the first two books of this series, and Stirling's "Dies the Fire". It seems he comes up with a great idea only to kill it with an excess of words. I couldn't finish this book, it just got boring as he kept moving away from the story and got enthralled with writing and history.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but not great. As an ending to a fantastically written series, this book leaves a lot to be desired and seems to have more to do with contractual obligation. The series, itself, is wonderful and full of characters and civilizations that don’t usually get a lot of press but a student of history would know, only too well, exactly where he gets the details of some of his battles from. This doesn’t detract from the series, much, or the stories as you begin to become emotionally linked to the characters. In this final book of the series, however, the ending is a very plausible, just not a very satisfying. He probably could have gotten an entire additional book out of the assault on Greece, not to mention the sub-plot regarding Egypt. As has been mentioned, it seems as if the author found that he had better things to do, like work on his next story, and just killed off the this series to get on with it. He did leave room for future sequels but I hope that the first thing he does is rewrite the ending to this one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not with a bang but a whimper For a series that began so well, this one ends (maybe...) as though the author had got tired of it. And so have we. We have the CIC still leading the hand-to-hand fighting personally, and the final defeat of the bad guy comes as a sort of "with one bound Jack was free" retribution that the Nantucketers have little or nothing to do with. I could have forgiven all this had Stirling not stolen one of his sub plots Hook, Rourke and everything else from one of my favourite movies - Zulu. Compare it, scene for scene, character for character and line for line. Straight unabashed plagiarism.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So close to flawless. The final(?) book in this great time travel series is almost up to the high standards the author set in the first two. The ending was somewhat lacking in my opinion (Dont blink or you'll miss it!), but overall its pretty darn good.
