FANTASY REVIEW: Full Circle - Pamela Freeman


Saker has devoted himself to dark enchantments and desires nothing but vengeance. And vengeance he has in abundance. His ghost army is slaughtering those of the new blood, fuelled by an ancient wrong. But while Saker had thought revenge would be simple, he's now plagued by voices foreshadowing a calamity beyond his comprehension. Ash and Bramble raise the warrior spirit of Acton, mighty in life and powerful in death. Only he can stop Saker's rampage. But is Acton, Lord of War, murderer or saviour? And why would he help strangers protect a world he's never known? Bramble has been marked as Saker's nemesis, but will be challenged by deeper powers than Saker can command - as well as by her own feelings for Acton. As the living fight the dead, strange forces will shape an uncertain future from pain and suffering.


The final novel in the trilogy from author Pamela Freeman and one that won’t disappoint the fans with its conclusion as it really does hit the spot. The writing is crisp, the characters continue to grow within the pages and whilst the ending felt a tad rushed alongside a bit predictable made this a series that was a bit of fun and something that didn’t require too much in the way of thinking to enjoy. Solid fantasy.
