THIS IS THE END.
How could it not be? Fate waits for none. It has unravelled across the ages, its web woven throughout millennia of chaos and blood. Now, all that was seen shall come to pass and there is nothing the heroes of Verda can do to stop it.
After years of planning and preparation, Alijah Galfrey is finally ready to change the world. He will break the scales of power across the realm, securing his victory and eternal reign. There is no line he will not cross, no sacrifice he will not make to bring peace to the land.
Spread thin, The Rebellion must work fast to muster their forces and meet the enemy head on. Vighon Draqaro and his allies give their lives to stand against the growing darkness, but only the children of fire and flame can determine the fate for all.
A CLASH OF FATES IS THE FINAL CHAPTER IN THIS UNMISSABLE EPIC FANTASY SERIES.

Its a world of elves, dragons, dwarves and humans, plus centaurs and other mystical creatures. Armies of the dead, creatures of the dark and beasts of the underworld. EPIC.
I wish I could fantasise as well as this author has. A must read for anyone who loves the fatansy genre. 5 Stars!
I find Quaintrell's writing very smooth and comfortable to read. There's nothing too jarring,yet the book remains interesting and captivating throughout. His characters and story have a quality that keeps me thinking when I put the book down. I will definitely read other books by this author.

Mild spoilers ahead -
I've enjoyed the echoes saga from book one. Asher struck a chord with me and I was glad the way his story ended. Bonding with a dragon was probably the best thing that happened to the entire series in the latter half of the saga.
Couple of points though, on the series as a whole. I feel like the tone changed along the way, toward a more '12 rating'.
After the first book I recommended it to my friends as Lord of the Rings but more adult, more violent. After book 3 or 4 I realised I was wrong.
The biggest issue (perhaps the only issue) I have with Mr Quaintrell is he fell in love with all his characters far too much and basically all of them turned into Superman, or a Mary Sue. In the first books main characters died, their deaths hitting hard. In the latter books, the only characters the author is willing to let go of are the ones who have been relegated to the shadows of the over arching story long before.
No matter the stakes or the odds against them I never felt like any of the main players were at risk. In the end I was even committing the sin of skimming through the fight scenes as I knew things would end with our heroes coming out on top or perhaps playing to a draw and living to fight another day.
There was a rawness to the characters in the first books that drew me in. By the end all the characters had become as pure and white as the driven snow and they all lived happily ever after and in my opinion something very big was lost along the way.
I hope the Asher prequel series is a lot darker.
If you pick up this series ('saga') you'll be gripped by and immersed in its struggles, and befriended by its characters. Like JRR Tolkein in The Hobbit and LoTR, we get to participate in a tale told by someone who not only loves to tell it but actually loves it--the story and its every part--itself! To me, it seems that Philip can't help but share something of the intimacy he shares with, and affection he feels for--Asher, Inara, Doran, Reyna, and so many others--with us, his readers.
The final installment is a carefully crafted and immensely pleasing end to what has been--for those of us who've been along for the ride since Book 1--an incredible journey through profound losses, deep loves & friendships, and the refusal to lie down and quit in the face of one existential threat after another. If all of this sounds irresistible, you'll love the Echoes Saga.
On a personal note, thank you for sharing this world with us, Philip. You've put so much care into this story. As a result, you've made us care about it too. Good luck with the next series. Am looking forward to reading it in due course!
But most of all, this book will leave you satisfied. No silly ambiguous endings here, just a full, and very welcome, complete ending...with some meat left on the bone for future stories set in this world.
The characters are your friends, you root for them, you care about them, you laugh and you cry with them. And, for me, that's the mark of a great writer.
Treat yourself and buy this book.
Thanks for the story Mr, Quaintrell. I enjoyed every second.
