Bear, Elizabeth -- Steles of the Sky

Conclusion of boy-and-magic-pony trilogy. And boy is it a conclusion. I don't know how you want your fantasy trilogies concluded, but if you were waiting for a giant battle with dragons and wizards and demons and mammoths and babies and magic ponies and multiple iterations of "The Eagles are coming!" (not necessarily with eagles), then have we got a trilogy for you.

It is interesting that this series follows several viewpoint characters, on both (every) side of a politically multifarious war of conquest, and they all get what they want. Sort of. More or less. Except the one big bad guy, of course. I suppose it's all meant to show that you can do everything opposite to George R. R. Martin and still be awesome.
