Finished 'The Sword Of Forbearance'

(our story so far)
1) The Breaking of Northwall
2) The Ends Of The Circle
3) The Dome In The Forest
4) The Fall Of The Shell
5) An Ambush Of Shadows
6) The Song Of The Axe

'So everything comes full circle. And circles have ends after all'

I will only say the following about The Sword Of Forbearance: The last book of the Pelbar Cycle had a satisfying (albeit bittersweet) ending.

I read this book without looking at the blurb on the back, the teaser in front, nor a peek at the maps. All those would have tarnished the experience.

I avoided reading these books for years because I just tend to steer clear of 'series' type books. On the other hand when a book is super fantastic I never want it to end. The Pelbar Cycle was very nearly that. According to my Twitter Log, I started it all on 3:42 PM on February 6th. So it nearly lasted forever. So long in fact that when I get pissed at something I've been calling it 'harzas' or 'filthy' in my head.

I thoroughly enjoyed the books. Highest Recommendation.
