This is the final novel to the Troy Game saga authored by Sara Douglass. Druid’s Sword brings an ending to a somewhat repetitive story that if I am to be truly honest wasn’t quite what I had expected. I’m not entirely sure if its because of the repetition of events from past lives especially those which have been repeated in previous novels, or because of the storyline itself. The introduction of an adolescent Grace and Catling really tip the scales into the realm of the new, but all in all I felt as though I was rereading books already read.
Although disappointed, I did continue to the end of the novel and I did enjoy what was new and different. There is obviously something even more mysterious and dangerous coming. But will it heal or destroy this precious land they all seem to say they care about so much? I am at the point where I wish they would just “throw away the ring already”!!!
Overall I would recommend this tittle to those that love mythological fantasy that have patience for reputation in the attempt to find the storyline birdied beneath. I give this book a rating of 7/10 stars
