Traitors' Gate: Book Three of Crossroads

Kate Elliott, Author . Tor $27.95 (574p) ISBN 978-0-7653-1057-6

Elliott delivers a solid, rousing conclusion to her sprawling Crossroads epic fantasy trilogy (after 2007's Spirit Gate ). Charismatic foreign captain Anji, heralded as a savior, and reeve commander Joss, known more for bedding women than leading men, have defeated the army of the corrupted Guardians. Though the secrets of the Guardians are finally uncovered, Anji refuses to relinquish his belief that the Guardians are incurable demons. Meandering plot lines may initially confuse newcomers, but Elliott's hardworking prose quickly seals the gaps, and she expertly juggles an ever-expanding cast of memorable and racially diverse characters whose captivating superstitions, passions and fears are the highlights of this expansive and complicated tale. The conclusion's final twist won't surprise readers, and some remaining loose ends suggest an imminent return to this fascinating world. (Aug.)
