My review of book 2, The Last of the Wilds, can be found here
I'm not big on spoilers (both for this book and it's predecessors), so I'll keep this brief.
The series steadily got better towards the end. The first book spent a lot of time building the world and its inhabitants (and of course, the characters) and the second was able to focus more the story itself. The third book has a lot of loose ends and questions to deal with and I do think it manages to wrap it all up nicely. I saw most of the twists and turns a mile off, but still appreciated them nonetheless. I really liked the main characters and as usual Canavan is excellent at juggling a large number of character point-of-views. Auraya, Emerahl and Mirrar are 3 very substantial and relate-able characters, and it was also nice to get closer to the Voices and understand the "enemy". The ending didn't have a wow-effect though, nor was is particularly spectacular, and the epilogue was just plain useless, which leaves the book on a solid 4 stars.
