What I liked:
The Age of the Seventh Sun is an exciting series that takes the beliefs of ancient times, such as having to perform a ritual to raise the sun and placing a character to challenge tradition. Ahkin is vital in all three books in his determination that the sacrifices made to increase the sun are unnecessary. It is to believe it took three books for that fact to be proven true. This book is packed full of love, friendship, laughter, mythology, hard lessons, patience, sacrifice, bravery, trust, and unexpected happily ever after.
Final Verdict:
At the end of the book, the author's note provides greater cultural context into the events that inspired the story. She admits that while the world and characters she created are fantasy, they are pulled from actual life events and religions. The pacing of this final book did seem weighted down by the political discussion in the first half of the book, but the conclusion was satisfactory and echoed more of what the first book had.
