Great finish to a new series -- moved really quickly, but not so quickly to seem rushed. I'll admit, at one point, I was wondering how he was going to get everything in place for the ending in time, but in his usual fashion, Donaldson pulls it off.
Voted "Most Likely To Be Found With His Nose In A Book" in grade school. Now, it would be "Most Likely To Be Found With His Nose In An E-Book Reader".
Fiction: Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Speculative. Love long series, as long as they keep moving. Non-Fiction: History/Philosophy/Tech.
I started with the old school SFF authors -- Asimov, Clarke, Tolkein, Moorcock, etc. -- then found (and was blown away by) Stephen Donaldson in high school. As I got older, I started reading Hugo award winning authors, and discovered great names like Robert Sawyer, Paolo Bacigalupi, Anne Leckie, N. K. Jemisin (!), Charlie-Jane Anders, and Tamsyn Muir.
I can't wait to see who I discover next.

@georgepenney I read it last when I got notice that "The Last Dark" was on it's way to me. I wanted to read the whole series end to end, which may have been a mistake -- the first trilogy stands alone, and there are some holes between the series which were easier to see.
