In his office filled with antique furniture and books that had not been opened for many a year, the General lit a small black cigar and offered the others whisky from a crystal decanter.

She led Hal up three flights of stairs to a long corridor with doors on either side; various human noises of pleasure and pain emerged from behind several of them. Mrs Damask motioned to a row of chairs where Hal could wait. Once she had gone, Hal listened self-consciously at Hunter’s door and when he was sure there was no activity within, he knocked quietly.

You know I can’t answer that. Hal looked towards the dark, unruly city beyond the grand, historic colleges.

The sixth book of nine in the series, brings back Mallory and Sophie from The Devil in Green. This book in some ways is much darker, somewhat more human, showing the disparate aims of society, pockets of resistance and government agencies trying to gain order and control.
Magic and technology work side by side, as the world continues to spiral towards eternal winter and eradication of all life.
There are more mysteries and myths to untangle with time running out as the opposition becomes stronger.
This book also brings back Laura, Ruth and Shavi of the original five but Ryan and Jack seem to have become myths themselves.
There is a lot of action but it is well paced and for the Trilogy of Trilogies fan it will not disappoint but leaves you eager to start the next set Kingdom of the Serpent.

Since the Fall devastated earth with the return to magic as the prime power source, governments are collapsing around the world and with their breakdowns civilization as we know it no longer exists. Optimistically the future is bleak; realistically there is no future. That assessment was even before the pandemic plague struck.

As mankind is on the precipice of extinction, the potential for survival has diminished much further for the Void has emerged. The Void lives for all other essences even its armies to die. Desperately trying to regroup and find a resolution to prevent the Void from nullifying all life, the British government leaders try a Hail Mary ploy by going after one of the Brothers and Sisters of the Dragons. They abduct Mallory to use as their counter weapon against the forces of the Void. However, in their naivety they leave behind a critically wounded and perhaps dying Sophie; weakening the already waning strength of the Brothers and Sisters of Dragons. With insider help, Mallory escapes and joins his brethren in a last stand against first the Void's invincible armies and if miraculously successful and still somehow alive then they will battle against the Void; human existence is at stake.

The final The Dark Age fantasy is a great ending to a complicated mythos as the world appears to be blinking out. The story line is fast-paced from the onset while the focus is somewhat different from that of its predecessors (see Devil in Green and Queen of Sinister) as the reader obtains a deeper look at pillars of civilization like government imploding. The Void is a terrific unique end of life essence as it devours the world with only the Dragon siblings sort of like a team of David (or the fantastic Four against Galactus) the only slim prayer. To appreciate fully the Chadbourne Dark Age, readers need to start at the beginning; it is worth the journey.

One of the things that annoys me about narratives based on a painful and bloody struggle against terrific odds and powerful opponents is that after several hundred pages, or even a thousand, of grim, back-against-the-wall situations, the authors wind everything up in three pages of happy ending. So after hours of reading about agony and suffering, readers are given only two or three minutes of pleasure as a reward, which hardly seems fair.

Mark Chadbourn, however, has sunk to new depths in his series The Dark Age. The three books ("The Devil in Green," "The Queen of Sinister" and "The Hounds of Avalon", all published by Pyr and all $16) chronicle an Earth in collapse, as suddenly all the demons and devils of myth and magic have come to life, destroying the world as we know it.

The various heroes battle their way through plenty of blood and trauma, with minor characters sacrificing themselves left and right to save humanity, and the protagonists going through torture and despair. Chadbourn does toss in a few pages of respite here and there, but for the most part, it's the overpowering forces of evil crushing tiny sparks of good for three straight books.

But then, as we finally wind down in the last great battle, with the icy winter of the last days combining with millions of undead intent on destroying all human beings, Chadbourn shows us the door to redemption - but never walks through it. That's right, after three full books, there is not a single moment of triumph. There is the promise of some (and it's conceivable Chadbourn will write about it in another trilogy), but it's never delivered. So readers, after suffering along with the several heroes (some left over from the previous trilogy, The Age of Misrule), get nothing for their efforts but a doorway full of light - and that's not close to being enough reward for me.

This is his sixth book set in this version of our world, I have read the first four, but not the fifth, as yet - one of the characters from the fifth appears in this novel - and it seems her story is the fifth novel, but might not be that interesting.

Anyway, this was good, and more in the vein of the third novel of his 'first' trilogy. However, the ending perhaps cheesily sets up yet another likely to be trilogy about what happened to Church from the first 3 novels, when he went back into the past. That was a bit annoying. Presumably that will hopefully end the whole thing back in the present time.
