Fires rage in Albion: strange, hidden fires, dark-flamed, invisible to the eye. Having ascended the throne as Albion’s High King, Llew Silver Hand takes the beautiful Goewyn for his queen. But in the midst of their joyous union, treachery is in the making, forcing Llew to choose between the honor of his kingship and the desire of his heart. The Brazen Man has defied Llew’s sovereignty, and Llew must journey to the Foul Land to redeem his greatest treasure. There, as the fabric of two worlds unravels, Llew hurtles headlong toward a final conflict with the Brazen Man. In the balance hangs not only the fate of Goewyn but also the very life-song of Albion, contained within the mystical Singing Stones.

The ancient Celts admitted no separation between this world and the Otherworld: the two were delicately interwoven, each dependent on the other. The Endless Knot crosses the thin places between this world and that, as Lewis Gillies begins his ultimate quest, striking the final resounding chord in the Song of Albion.

  • “[A] respectful reworking of Celtic source material…admirably restrained.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annika | 12/24/2013

    " All tales must end, but there is a certain sadness in having to say goodbye. I suppose it couldn't have ended any other way. It has been a fun ride and I will revisit the entire trilogy one day. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eric | 12/23/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill Fulks | 12/18/2013

    " This is a solid end to the trilogy and had a few surprises along the way. I think it employed my fantasy/mythic elements than the previous two books in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charles Emecz | 12/14/2013

    " Not an author I know very well. this book looked interesting and I thought I would read it. I was pleasantly suprised with it. It was slow paced sometimes but overall pretty good. If you are thinking about getting, but not sure, then give it a go. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annette | 11/5/2013

    " Not much to say about this final entry in the series that hasn't already been said about the other two. It's pretty much a straight continuation of Llew / Lewis' adventures from the previous book. A slightly unexpected and basically satisfying ending. The series is quite worthwhile. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bill Tillman | 11/5/2013

    " A great climax to the Song of Albion series. The triology has an astonding climax, well worth reading all three, the ending will be a gut wrenching one! A page turner. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katy | 4/12/2013

    " The first 3/4 is excellent, good story with lots of twist and turns and villains and such. But then the ending...what happened? It is probably one of the worst endings I have ever read. Such a disappointment. So if you don't want to handle a sad, depressing ending, just stick with books 1 and 2. "
