Some of the ideas presented aren't completely wrapped up in this trilogy. Who is Simkin? How does Joram get involved with the military and Menju the sorcerer? How does the military of Earth cross over to Thimhallen? Why does the military even want to come to Thimhallen? Who capped the magic and why did they cap it so it wouldn't leak out into the universe?
Simkin was explained. He is a) Merlin b) The essence of magic c) the mystery meat leftover from your refrigerator I am going with b.
Why does Earth's military go to Thimhallen? Well, with lasers and such, it is a future Earth. They obviously need more living space. I believe it is mentioned in the book.
As for the capping of the magic well, I have no idea. There was obviously enough magic for everyone in the universe before people came to Thimhallen. There was even more in Thimhallen. Why cap it? No ideas here.
Menju, the military and Joram: how do they hook up? No ideas again. Joram is found by the military, but the conflict between Menju and Joram? I think it was made up with no explanations given as to why the military and Menju are at odds with Joram.
I didn't really like this book as much as the first two. Too much deus ex machina going on.
I would recommend buying this book to complete the series. It does wrap up almost everything, even if it doesn't wrap things up as well as the first two books did of leaving things unwrapped.
