Beyond the Shadows

I definitely enjoyed the final book in the The Night Angel Trilogy. The entire series was wrapped up quite well. Some of the stuff was a bit predictable and some of the stuff was a little confusing, but all in all, it was a great ending for the series. Does that make much sense? I shall try to explain.

I was hooked from pretty much the beginning right up until the end. The way everything ended seemed a little odd. We got this whole idea that long ago, Khali was raised because of the Strangers weird 13-base number system and that she was what happened after 13 Night Lords were raised. That was the big set up that we were told, but then it turns out that Khali is just Trace, Durzo’s ex-girlfriend or something.

She has the white ka’kari and blah blah blah, she is full of anger and rage against Durzo. I figured she would inhabit Elene and that Kylar would have to make a choice: either kill the woman he loves or allow Khali to be free.

I guess my problem is that the whole army of Krul and the weird Strangers subplot seemed a little unnecessary. I mean, boom, all of a sudden the Wolf shows up and it turns out to be Ezra and he is in some weird battle with the Dark Hunter.

Am I the only person who feels like Weeks should have just expanded this idea into a fourth book? I wonder if he learned from that mistake and this is why we are getting another Lightbringer?

Do not get me wrong, I really enjoyed this entire series, but I have been done with it for a week now and I am still trying to figure out if I liked the ending. If you read this, I would love to hear your thoughts on it.
