[ Review Posted: Aug 28, 2017 ] - See all my reviews
The conclusion to the Sumeria's Sons series brings the characters together and gives us a chance to hear each of their voices.

I was glad there was an excellent and lengthy prologue to bring us up to speed on the major events that happened in the first 5 books and 3 short stories. I've been looking forward to the conclusion of this series, and it certainly met my expectations.

The story was told from the point of view of several of the characters. Each chapter indicates who is telling the story which was helpful because their voices mostly sounded the same to me. Tristan, Ushna, and Brian must risk everything and everybody they love to win a war with, and on behalf of, a group of gods. It was nice to see their relationship and love for each other continue to mature. We also saw things through each of their eyes giving their love more depth. With the help of Goddess Tiamat, the team is determined to defeat Inanna and Marduk. There were several twists in the story which kept me guessing until the end who would survive and how the war would play out.

I felt the world-building, which was significant in the prior books, was substantially expanded in this story. With the extensive world and abundant characters, I felt overwhelmed by the details and struggled to follow everything that was happening. Ultimately, I guess I'm somewhat of a lazy reader and prefer not to take notes to be able to stay on top of a story. Once I gave up on trying to follow the details of the war and the world's history, and I just focused on the characters, I found myself enjoying the relationships significantly more.

This series must be read in order since the stories build on each other. I felt there was enough closure related to Tristan's activities to feel satisfied. There were some future threats presented, because evil never dies, that could easily allow this series to continue.

Tristan's deep love for Ushna, Brian, and his family and friends will drive him to accept his significant power to end the ongoing war between the gods.
