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.
