Great ending although not my favourite ML series
14 May 2019
The final book in the Book of the Ancestor series will not disappoint Mark Lawrence fans with an epic finale (although if you’re waiting for the showdown between Nona and the Noi-Guin which was the teaser epilogue at the end of Grey Sister you’ll need to wait a while). The story skips (a bit confusingly sometimes) between present-day and three years ago during the escape at the end of Grey Sister although all the plot-lines come together well at the end. It’s hard to review without spoilers, but (very minor spoiler alert) there is a sly nod and a wink to the Broken Empire series – particularly the Red Queens War – when the Ark is opened / activated, which made me laugh.
