|There are two kinds of book series in this world
that are truly series, and those that are actually one book spread across multiple
volumes. Id figured out that the Castings trilogy was one of the latter from reading
book one, and that Id better find a copy of book two before reviewing book three, or
Id really lose the plot. The library supplied, and I was glad I did read Deep
Water before Full Circle or it really would have
Full Circle is, of course, mainly about
bringing things to a satisfactory conclusion, as well as laying the dead to rest,
sacrifice, and most importantly about a new stone. That stone changes the word, its name
is evenness and it brings about balance. And this is a very balanced book in many ways.
The resolution isnt the big magical showdown you might expect for the end of a
traditional fantasy trilogy, but its very satisfying nevertheless. There is
definitely a new and inventive mood in the fantasy genre these days, and I rather like it.
