Time Goes Round
We Are the Waking
Root of the Rule
From I Heart Reading.net
The last installment in the Lizard Queen series is no doubt the most spectacular of all three volumes, offering a climax of events that was very impressive and kept me on the edge of my seat. The Lizard Queen Series Volume Three is the crowning glory of this epic saga that stretched across nine books, three volumes, and offered a vast, expansive fantasy world that I will always remember.
In the first part of the book, Time Goes Round, Amy has returned to her own world to pull herself together and regain some of her strength. Meanwhile, she discovers a few clues in her own world that could help her in the other world she has grown fond of. More than the other books, I thought this one focused on characters, as we now see Amy spend a lot of time in her own world too, but nevertheless, the plot made some progress too. Besides, focusing on characters isn’t bad – bringing Amy back to her own world helps show how much she’s grown and changed.
Then, in the next part, We Are The Waking, Amy and her friends are back on track to find out more about the prophecy and how exactly it will unfold. You can feel the end is near, that all dots are being connected, the mystery is close to being solved, loose ends are tied up. The action slowed down a little in this book, though, but this picked back up in the final installment, Root of the Rule.
I don’t want to spoil things, but book nine really pushed this volume from a 4 star to a 4,5 star read. It was epic. This whole series was epic.
I would definitely recommend fantasy fans check out the Lizard Queen series. You’ll be in for quite a few surprises, and you won’t be dissapointed at all. More like amazed.
