Publisher's Summary

The journey that began in The Shadow of What Was Lost and continued in An Echo of Things to Come now comes to its spectacular conclusion in The Light of All That Falls, the final chapter of the Licanius Trilogy by acclaimed epic fantasy author James Islington.

After a savage battle, the Boundary is whole again - but it may be too late. Banes now stalk the lands of Andarra, and the Venerate have gathered their armies for a final, crushing blow. 

In Ilin Illan, Wirr fights to maintain a precarious alliance between Andarra's factions of power. With dark forces closing in on the capital, if he cannot succeed, the war is lost.

Imprisoned and alone in a strange land, Davian is pitted against the remaining Venerate. As he tries to keep them from undoing Asha's sacrifice, he struggles to come to terms with his own path and all he has learned about Caeden, the friend he chose to set free.

And finally, Caeden is confronted with the reality of a plan laid centuries ago - heartbroken at how it started and devastated by how it must end.

A Trumpth

I am worried that if I express my true praise for this book it would come off as hyperbolic and excessive. And on the other hand, I don't think I could even put into words how much I was captivated by the final book in an fantasy worthy of the term "epic".

The Light of All That Falls completes James Islington's debut series I a way I was worried that he could never deliver on. Islington wrote his series with such ambition, such scope, and with intense moral weight that I doubted a satisfactory conclusion could be reached. But he did it anyway. Character arcs with such gravity I have rarely read outside of what is now regarded as the classics. I am not ashamed to say that while reading my throat chocked and my eyes watered; that is how powerful Islington's dialogue, prose, and narrative captivated me. He also writes with respect to the reader, allowing mysteries to develop and leave clues in the writing that while are not bold will allow attentive readers to uncover truths before characters that possess the lack of the reader's insight.

I don't think that Michael Kramer is possible of having a bad performance and his work elevates the text. He captures the emotion and soul of the characters.

If I must state any negatives for the sake of being honest it would only be a slight distaste for some 11th hours developments that solve problems.

But that ending... I won't even try to capture amazement. Islington has made it almost a staple of the series that the ending provides a mass revelation that changes the entire reading of the series to that point. And for the conclusion to the story, Islington perhaps delivers one his best in the epilogue.

In 2019, the year that brought us many great fantasy; I will remember The Light of All That Falls as my favorite of the year. I eagerly await Mr. Islington's next work and would happily recommend the Licanious Trilogy to all interested in the newest voices in fantasy.

Masterpiece

Let me start by saying that I am a huge Sanderson fan. I found this series in my wait for Stormlight Archive book 3. I loved these books so much! This being my favorite in the series. I imagine that authors have difficulty finishing books well . That does not seem to be problem for Kramer. The ending to The Licanius Trilogy was more satisfying that any novel I have ever read. A true masterpiece.
