Review by School Library Journal Reviews

Gr 9 Up—All the prophets are onstage and a god resurrected—only for that god to be trapped in Beru's body with the Prophet Pallas holding her sister Ephyra to ensure Beru's cooperation. Jude and Hassan are working to save them, while Anton tries to discover a way to save the world other than the sacrifice he and his friends refuse to make. After two excellent installments, expectations were high for this finale—and the cataclysmic conclusion to Pool's "Age of Darkness" trilogy pays off in spades. With a cast this large, it's hard to imagine everyone getting their share of important choices, but Pool finishes each character arc flawlessly. VERDICT This series has staying power; hand it to readers looking for something similar to Kendare Blake's "Three Dark Crowns." Copyright 2022 School Library Journal.
