Once Adam has completed his training to become a knight (or Nasi, as such things are called on the planet Gannah), he will be heir to the throne. Or that's what he thinks, until he stumbles upon a village of Old Gannahan survivors. Hard to believe, because they were thought to have all died in the plague decades earlier. Worst yet, it seems one of them is the rightful ruler, not Adam's mother as everyone had believed.
What's to be done? Plenty, as it turns out. Almost more than Adam has the time, energy, and stomach for, as he is assigned the task of bringing the Old Gannahans thousands of kilometers to join the New Gannahans at their settlement.
This fourth book wraps up all the loose ends in the Gateway to Gannah series and leads to a thought-provoking and tear-jerking conclusion.
The Last Toqeph is non-stop action that will make you laugh, weep, and ball up your fists with anger. The writing is stellar and the story is enthralling. Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of this one.
Clearly, effectively, and quite competently written, this book is easy to read: the words flow naturally and story flows comfortably.
I read I was repeatedly prodded to ponder but able to roll with the story.
The interactions of two races of aliens and humans and their clashing expectations makes for a page turner.
The love and spiritual truth of the relationships cannot be avoided. It's a compelling book.
The author took me to a world I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and involved me emotionally in the lives of some fascinating characters.
There are a lot of adventures in this book going on simultaneously (which adds to the excitement), yet I didn't get confused. The action is fairly continuous, with some segments more introspective, adding depth to the characters.
The author deftly continues threads from the past 3 books, ties up loose ends, and brings the series to a satisfying conclusion. I was sorry to come to the end, as I have enjoyed my time on Gannah. Such a fascinating place. And the characters have become almost real to me.
I really enjoyed this book, with its twisted plot line and strong characters. You will too.
