Finishing a good trilogy is so bittersweet for me. The Reckoning by Jason D. Morrow is the third and final book in the Marenon Chronicles and what an ending it was! Jason D. Morrow is a gifted fantasy author and the conclusion to this brilliant fantasy series only confirmed it.
The character growth was great I liked that Silas has flaws and that he’s not a perfect or indestructible savior. I also like Julian, he is definitely one of my favorite characters. I like how you know his intentions are honorable but you just want to kick him because he never thinks it through. As for the rest of the supporting characters, they seem more realistic because they are perfectly imperfect. With all the fantasy novels that I have read, and that’s a lot, I really dislike characters that are purely good or purely evil. It’s just not believable.
The only negative thing that I have to say about this book is that it just wasn’t long enough. I felt that a few parts of it were rushed. He crammed so much information into so few pages and I wish that a little more time was spent in certain areas. Otherwise I have NO complaints.
As for the ending, all I can say was that it was good. I’m afraid that explaining my true feelings would give to much away and I don’t want to spoil it for anyone. Just know that I really liked it.
Overall The Reckoning was an excellent ending to an amazing series. Jason if you are reading this I hope you continue to write fantasy. You are very good at it!

About the Book
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.
