The Curse of the Phoenix Crown The concluding instalment of the War of Vengeance sagaFor centuries, war has raged between the proud elves and unforgiving dwarfs After many great battles and vicious sieges, many failed attempts at peace and bloody massacres, both the dwarf High King Gotrek Starbreaker and the elf Phoenix King Caledor II tire of war and seek to bring the conflict to an end but neither will surrender As the last battle of the war begins, the two kings meet in single combat to decide who will be the true master of the Old World And only one of them will walk away The concluding instalment of the War of Vengeance saga Not a very satisfying ending to a very entertaining series Perhaps C.L Werner had too many loose threads to tie up Perhaps the series was ended prematurely Maybe, there was no way to bring a war of this epic scale to a satisfying end Whatever the reasons though, this book ended with a whimper Sad really since there were many cool moments, epic characters, and amazing battles scattered throughout this book and series.
