"Acclaimed author Elizabeth Moon spins gripping, richly imagined epic fantasy novels that have earned comparisons to the work of such authors as Robin Hobb and Lois McMaster Bujold. In this volume, Moon's brilliant masterwork reaches its triumphant conclusion. The mysterious reappearance of magery throughout the land has been met with suspicion, fear, and violence. In the kingdom of Lyonya, Kieri, the half-elven, half-human king, struggles to balance the competing demands of his heritage while fighting a deadly threat to his rule: evil elves linked in some way to the rebirth of magic. Meanwhile, in the neighboring kingdom of Tsaia, a set of ancient artifacts recovered by the former mercenary Dorrin Verrakai may hold the answer to the riddle of magery's return. Thus Dorrin embarks on a dangerous quest to return these relics of a bygone age to their all-but-mythical place of origin. What she encounters there will change her in unimaginable ways--and spell doom or salvation for the entire world. Praise for Elizabeth Moon Limits of Power "Thoughtful and deeply character driven, full of personal crises as heartbreaking and hopeful as any dramatic invasion. Fantasy fans will be delighted by this impressive foray."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) Echoes of Betrayal "This is an excellent series, and Echoes of Betrayal is particularly well done. [Moon is a] consistently entertaining writer, and this book lives up to her standards."--San Jose Mercury News "Rousing action and intriguing plot twists."--Kirkus Reviews Kings of the North "Moon's characters navigate an intricate maze of alliances and rivalries. Close attention to military detail gives the action convincing intensity."--The Star-Ledger "Her storytelling is as electrifying as ever, and her readers should be delighted with this new vista of a well-known world."--Booklist"-- "Disparate threads come together in the concluding volume of Elizabeth Moon's epic fantasy tale, as ancient mages are awakened, ancient evils are defeated, and ancient secrets are revealed. But none of this comes without a high personal cost, as both kindgoms and characters are changed forever in the wake of their trials...and not always for the better"--… (plus d'informations)

I am a big fan of fantasy and science fiction novels especially if they are long and have several books in the series. I really enjoy a series of books that I can immerse myself in and I first picked up an Elizabeth Moon novel because it was long and part of a multi-novel series. I continue to read her books because I find them engrossing and highly enjoyable. ( )

This is the fifth and final book in the second series about Paks and her world and she is here more absent than ever. I am not going to write a long review since if you have come this far you should just read the book. It will conclude most of the important story lines so there is no need to worry about more cliff hangars (as in the third book). It would be nice if there was less deus ex machine feeling about some of it though.

All in all it has been an easy to read, nice (what is the opposite of Dark Fantasy) series. I think I would recommend it to someone new to Fantasy and reading. For big Fantasy consumers it will feel a bit bland.

For me, at this time I like Moon's Science Fiction better than her Fantasy, and her [b:The Speed of Dark|96063|The Speed of Dark|Elizabeth Moon|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1320497793s/96063.jpg|1128271] book best of all. That one I highly recommend. ( )

I really enjoyed this as a conclusion to the series. It did spend more time on wrapping up all the plotlines than on any new plot, but it was for me a very satisfying wrapping up. There was a great deal of deus ex machina (or deus ex dragon, perhaps), but I like my fantasy with extra interfering gods, so that's all good in my view. This book felt a bit like the dessert at the end of a heavy series. ( )

Hoping for more

This was a good book. I enjoyed reading it but it left a lot of unanswered questions. Hopefully Ms Moon will return to this world again.

This is the final book in paladin’s legacy. The events in paladin’s legacy start where the events of the deed of paksenarrion end. I enjoyed the first book in this series a lot. After the end of fourth book, I wondered how she would be able to wrap up all the threads in a single book. She did manage to wrap up all the threads but in a rush. Wasn’t a very satisfying conclusion.
Dorrin is the best character in this work too but like in the previous books, it was King Kieri’s character that was flat and his story arc dragged the most.
Moon writes military aspects very well and the few battles in this including the sea battle were very well written.
