3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but short with a few flaws. 28 September 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on

The Gates of Iron probably has the best plot line and character arcs of the trilogy. Unfortunately I don't feel like the potential is fully realized. The book is relatively short and i felt that the story would have benefited if it was longer (or even spread to another book). While all of the scenes felt 'complete' from a story perspective, what is lacking is the details. It almost feels like someone stripped everything from the book that wasn't key to plot progression. Major scenes/battles tended to feel rushed and could benefit from fleshing out. Information on the God was sparse. The story line with Shanis could of used fleshing out.

+ Captivating story and characters
+ Alot of new items/ideas were introduced in this story and they worked well

- Not many complaints, the biggest being the shortness previously addressed.
- Lack of map makes for some confusing reading at times. I kept getting confused on West/East references, and location of other countries.
- Killing characters is OK, and can definitely be key to story progression and character growth. HOWEVER, i felt this was one of the areas that was glossed over in this book. More details at the time and more details on the impact these key deaths has would be welcome. For example: There was not a single mention of how Oskar felt about a certain death or how it affected him after the fact.
- I would like to see character 'stumbles'. Shanis shouldn't make the 'right' decision every time.
- Minor typos and " " misuse. As Lerryn charged into a battle he was called "Larris" once.
3.0 out of 5 stars Trilogy's third installment best yet... 28 August 2015
By B. Stevens - Published on

After years of waiting for the trilogy's third book, readers discover how Shanis and the silver serpent will save Gameryah. Unlike the first two books, the typographical errors are minimal ( sometimes writing Aspen instead of Aspin and other obvious typos ) but the story overcomes the grammar. The story is enjoyable with just enough detail but the conclusion's details with Shanis, the silver serpent and the ice king are missing. Its location, ritual history, role of the 'tree' etc. were only mentioned briefly without much background story building. Perhaps the author saves that for another story. The author's writing skill has improved from the first books. He now spins multiple story threads and melds them professionally. A good genre read but mostly simple compared to the giants in this category like G.R.R. Martin, Robert Jordan, Terry Brooks, Tolkien and others. Worth a read.

I do not see how it was possible, but David actually finished th trilogy in spectacular fashion. How do you kill a God? You have to be a newly crowned of a nation that has been at war with itself for centuries. And that is as much as a spoiler as you will get from me. Get the book and get the series the first book should be free on Amazon.
5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific trilogy 3 July 2015
By Kim E. Power - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Debord has written a great story full of interesting characters and better still, strong, interesting women. It's a long time since I was so enthralled with a trilogy. Of course, like all good quest epics, the leads are teenagers, so sometimes one has to suspend disbelief that a fifteen year old, no matter how skilled at the sword, could defeat men with years of experience on her, but this is a small quibble. Characters face their flaws, grow, fail and some are redeemed. Although, again like most quest epics, the characters have some stock characteristics. The archer, the warrior, the scholar, the wise guide and so forth. But in the main, their personalities are individual and appealing. I'll be looking for more of Debord's work.
