    Before I begin my review, I d first like to mention how absolutely thrilled I was to finally have this book in my hands The Licanius Trilogy is one of my top 10 all time fantasy series and in my opinion is a masterwork that stands out among the majority of its peers I eagerly awaited the release of this book for over two years and when I finally finished reading it, I sat and stared into space to process the amazingness of what I just absorbed But enough about that, let s get to my review shall we THE LIGHT OF ALL THAT FALLS concludes the story that was begun in the previous two installments beautifully in my opinion and just solidifies it as one of the great fantasy series in recent memory Andarra is threatened on its northern border by evil forces that are determined to conquer and overthrow it The only way these horrific beasts can be held back is through Asha s special magic as she attempts to strengthen the boundary But is her magic enough to keep the invading hordes at bay Meanwhile Davian finds himself still a prisoner of his own doing Held captive in an unfamiliar land, his ability to time travel proves to be both a boon and a curse as he struggles to find an escape so that he may be able to help his friends And help his friends he must as they find themselves trapped in a vice between fanatical religious zealots on one side and frighteningly heinous monsters born of nightmares on the other If he doesn t find an answer soon, all could be lost to devastating effect.Will the boundary break and unleash hell on an already weakened land, or can the four friends Davian, Wirr, Asha, and Caeden muster the courage and will that it will take to win the ultimate battle of good versus evil Will the only thing that may be able to save them all be a forbidden magic that was once all but snuffed out of Andarran society All will be answered in this exciting and riveting final book in The Licanius Trilogy.Well that was totally worth the wait Simply put I was enthralled by THE LIGHT OF ALL THAT FALLS to the point that I got really emotional as the events leading up to the finale began to take shape I was left feeling like I had just read a really important work of fantasy that people need to discover This series is truly masterful and is a great substitute for those waiting on the new Stormlight book by Brandon Sanderson It contains a lot of the same magic and world building that makes Sanderson such a success and I believe fans of his work would adore this series if they gave it a chance.It also has the complexity of Steven Erikson s Malazan but is a bit accessible and easy to follow than Erikson s lengthy opus I compare it to those authors only to give a feel for the style but make no mistake, this series is completely original and stands proudly on its own merits The characters withstand challenge after challenge and are tested to the brink of their limits The world building is some of the best you will encounter in the genre But what sets this series apart for me is the different types of magic found throughout This series has everything from time travelling to shape shifting to sorcery and evil dark magic The way that this magic is so vividly described and manifested through the characters is something that reminded me again of the reasons why I got into reading fantasy to begin with Islington has a skill that not many authors can match in that regard.If you have never read these books, you should really pick up the first book The Shadow of What was Lost immediately By the time you get to this third book you will see why this should be regarded as one of the very best fantasy series out there It most certainly is for me In closing I would just like to recommend THE LIGHT OF ALL THAT FALLS whole heartedly to anyone who feels like there hasn t been anything new or challenging written in the fantasy genre lately This series will happily prove you wrong The book is due to be released on December 10, 2019, which is less than a week from now.

    FINALLY Pre ordered and now we wait What kind of a perverse creature you have to be to actually review a book that hasn t been published yet Shame on you Some of us out there have a rule against starting a series before they are finished The reason I m using the app is to have a quick overview before I start reading something But no, some wannabe smart asses actually had to review it before its published and get me on the wrong track Thank you so much

    Review for The Light of All That Falls by James Islington Thank you so much to Orbit for sending me a copy of this to read and review All opinions are my own Trigger Warnings TW For violence, murder, cutting mutilation, warfare Stay safe, friends Summary The Light of All that Falls concludes the epic adventure that began in The Shadow of What Was Lost, the acclaimed fantasy blockbuster from James Islington.The Boundary is whole once again, but it may be too late.Banes now stalk Andarra, while in Ilin Illan, the political machinations of a generation come to a head as Wirr s newfound ability forces his family s old enemies into action.Imprisoned and alone in a strange land, Davian is pitted against the remaining Venerate as they work tirelessly to undo Asha s sacrifice even as he struggles with what he has learned about the friend he chose to set free.Finally, Caeden is confronted with the reality of the plan he laid centuries ago heartbroken at how it began, and devastated by how it must end My Thoughts Wow talk about full circle.I cannot believe that this series is over There will definitely be spoilers for the first two books in this, here is your warning I ll be doing my best to keep this fairly spoiler free so that everyone can enjoy this just as much as I did.In this installment, we follow our crew as they attempt to keep the boundary whole, fight a war, and try to figure out how to deal with Caeden s plan for the end of the world.To say that Islington is a weaver of many threads would be an understatement.We follow multiple perspectives, think A Game of Thrones but with fewer characters, and much deeper development in my opinion I have unfounded love for our main four, Caeden, Asha, Davian, and Wirr.Caeden is plagued by his past lives, of the horrible things he has done, and people has has killed He has struggled with acceptance since he learned of his past actions, and the way his character grows and evolves and chooses to be better than his past is absolutely incredible I love him with my whole heart.Asha is incredibly powerful, both with her use of Essence, in her fierceness and her fire I liked her from the very beginning, and getting to see the part she plays, and her love for Davian grow in this one made my heart warm She works tirelessly to push herself, to fight harder, to be faster, and to be better.Then we have Davian, the star of our show who is unlike everyone else He is an Augur and is one of the few who can use Essence but has no way to store it, rather pulls from those around him He is fated to die by the hands of Caeden in order to save the world and close the boundary He has a knack for getting punched by others, and generally rolling with it That should not be possible, observed the redheaded man I m very good, Davian assured him Wirr has huge responsibility, and has to essentially run a kingdom as a warden, and try to handle an all out war against them He seemingly has a lesser part to play, but he is just as important as everyone else He is struggling with the fact that his father was being controlled by someone close to him.I was absolutely stunned by the last 100 pages of this book About halfway through I was worried we had too many things left to do, too many threads that needed to be woven, but Islington did an incredible job.My jaw dropped, and I cried at the ending.Spoiler under the cut view spoiler Caeden smiled.This had me sobbing hide spoiler

    5 5 Absolutely brilliant This is the epic of epic fantasy There has been a slew of top in show novels recently Alternately, the fact that I m only reading continuing series and not utter gender agenda d postmaterial leftist but new shit like Priory of the Orange Tree means I m just selecting the best of the best for reading in the first place In either case, 1 My average review is going up, but this is not grade inflation and 2 A sharply increasing polarization in literature, both in political view literary fiction and picks have been fully converged for years and in standards of quality for every Islington, there s a Jemisin for every Goodkind, a Scalzi for every Lawrence, a Shannon.This book is on the first side of that divide It is the chiefest work on that side It is incomparable in fantasy Nevertheless, after just having given The Burning White a glowing review and having called it the capstone of a good series a capstone so well formed that it turned that good series in to a great series, to quote, the best fantasy series published this millennium , a few weeks later it must at least share the throne, if it has not been forced to abdicate This tour de force trilogy is a series of extended meditations on memory, freedom, determinism, responsibility, personality, philosophy of mind, time travel, contingency and necessity, degeneracy, and true religion, couched in a fantasy of the highest caliber, with unpredictable but never forced plot twists and character development that rivals a Pynchon, Wolfe, or Bret Easton Ellis and without betraying the slightest hint of propagandistic preachiness Follow Davian and Caeden, Asha and Wirr and all the ensemble as they learn true honor, true sacrifice, legitimate doubt, unblind faith, zealots both evil and good on both sides of the truth, Solzhenitsyn s line dividing good and evil running through every heart, and the meaning of justification over against rationalization and vice versa.If you like fantasy, read this If you can tolerate fantasy, read this If you can tolerate fiction, read this This is the Great American Novel of the 21st century in genre clothing.

    4.5Honestly, this book felt LONG Given that it is 864 pages, that s pretty understandable however, around 3 4 through, I was certainly feeling as though the plot was dragging a bit I was going to be sick if I had to read another chapter about view spoiler Wirr and Andarra s politics I also kept thinking to myself is Davian STILL imprisoned I definitely was not expecting the main character to spend the entire novel imprisoned and training hide spoiler
