A decent ending to this seven book series. It was in my opinion the weakest of the seven books maybe because there was less room for Garth Nix's imagination to stretch. Though in some ways it was fairly thin on plot - much of the side stories featuring Leaf and Suzie seemed a little superfluous and I found myself skimming those sections to get back to Arthur. However it moved along and wrapped up all the threads of the series very well. Really fun creative series which provides food for thought with allusions to mythological and religious ideas.
