Book Review: The Reckoning

Held in a dark cell in the heart of Mudavé, Silas Ainsley, the Deliverer of Marenon, meets a new enemy: the Possessor. Silas knows it won't be long before the Stühocs try to kill him, or worse, turn him into an enemy against the very people he is meant to help.

Julian Hobbes has left the throne in Farlaweer in search of the last two medallions of power, knowing that once he has all six, he will be able to use the ultimate weapon against the Stühocs.

With three of the Dunarian council members dead, the Stühoc king, Anithistor, has charged Alric Thirsk with the task of finally destroying the Dunarians for good by killing their leader, Kaden Osric. If Alric fails, his friends will suffer a most torturous fate.

Though the Stuhocs are winning the war, Silas has a dream about a man in Mudavé who claims he can help Silas defeat Anithistor and the Possessor. That man also claims to be Silas' father.

Last book of Marenon Chronicles and the my favorite one too. 

Jason Morrow continued his easy writing to the 3rd book, and this one goes even faster. Full of excitement, it keeps you at the end of your sit waiting to see how will it end. Full of surprises and a wonderful ending too. I said it before and i will say it again, the all happy ending, everyone is happy is not necessarily the right ending for a story, and i'm really happy the author knows that. I mean it's a freaking war, not everyone can be happy at the end. There are casualties and sacrifices to be made!

Silas has turned into a magnificent man. Mature, brave, clever and still a teen who understands his part in the world and what must be done. I liked him before, but i loved him as a character here. And not the "oh he is so cute and awesome" but i respect him as a person. They way he thinks and acts. I got to know him so well, while he grew up and i'm quite happy on how he turned out.

At the previous book i really hated Julian. Finally, he find his sense and he becomes a great man like at the first book. There are consequences for his action before, but he finally see his mistakes and tries to fix what he can.

A beautiful ending for the Marenon Chronicles with many twists but exactly what the story needed at the end. I only wish, the author would have taken more time with his scenes and some of the events. It could have easily be good with double its size.
