    1. **3.5 stars**The Wrath of the Great Guilds is probably the worst book in the series (which sucks because it’s the last one) and still left me in a book hangover. I love this series so and I’ll be sad to be leaving the world.The books had several problems: first, most of the action happens during a siege and sieges ARE BORING! Pretty much the same thing happens over and over. The bad guys attack, you repel them, they attack again. Wash, rinse and repeat. Second, none of the supporting cast wa [...]


    2. Overall I think this is the weakest book in the series; it's mainly comprised of a bloody war and the resulting political problems that follow. There is some resolution with regard to the history of Demetr, but I wish there had been more. And although this is the end of Mari and Alain's story, I do wish we'd had a glimpse of their future with an epilogue. There was a nod to that, but I wanted more. That's probably because I read so much romance and love a happily ever after. I got the sci-fi-ste [...]


    3. Review crossposted from Reanne ReadsWow. That was fantastic. I just finished listening to The Wrath of the Great Guilds, final book in this amazing series, and I’m still a little giddy. The Pillars of Reality is now my favorite book series. I absolutely loved it.This book starts off right where the previous one left off, with Mari and Alain going to Dorcastle to help defend the city from the Empire, which has teamed up with the Great Guilds. Her army can’t go with her, since it’s off elsew [...]


    4. The sixth and final book. Spoilers ahead for the earlier ones. Mari and Alain, with their forces, head to Dorcastle, as she said at the end of the last book. Alain still anxious about his vision of Mari, dying.On the way, they discover a nasty machination of the Mages Guild, and get some additional equipment. And arrive for the siege.Which involves the difficulties of using their far-speakers at that place, lightning-wielding mages on rocs, explosive carts, an elder telling Alain something and a [...]


    5. I noticed a few reviewers were disappointed by this book. I would beg to differ. I think this book was exactly what the series built it up to be. One of the aspects of Campbell's YA series that I enjoyed was each book, while adventurous, had samplings of different types of adventure books. The last book started as a military campaign, the bulk of the book was a covert ops mission, and the conclusion was a political coup undone by a duel to the death.This one hit the ground running, diving into a [...]




    6. I have really enjoy this world and characters so far. But, the writing in "The Wrath of the Great Guilds" was just to much on the nose for me. The dialog was either blatant exposition or the same speech on morality over and over. Dialog also lacked tension and character progression.It feels like Jack has grown tired of this series and just wants it over and done with.


    7. It took me a long time to start this series, the blurb on the back of the first book just wasn't that interesting But it kept showing up, and I eventually started to read The whole series as FAST as I could!To date I think this has been one of the most masterful uses of dialogue to move a truly spectacular story forward at break neck speed, while also allowing deep insight into the characters themselves!There were times in the series when I was excited to find out just how the character's discus [...]


    8. Shedding a tear for Dematr. It was a rocky start but I came to love this world of Mechanics & Mages, as far fetched as it seemed and now as it is getting good, the story concludes leaving me wanting more from this in terms of the future as well as how they came to be. It was a wonderful journey and I would recommend anyone to this series! I won't go into the details but the expected battle was well written, giving it a great sense of grit. I was happily surprised that it didn't just end with [...]


    9. Fantastic ending, left the door open to a follow up series (which looks like has begun!). The narrator is phenomenal. Great ability to do a huge variety of accents with subtle nuances. And to remember each separate character! The only small complaint I have is the overwhelming amount of characters and keeping them all straight. If this were to be a written book, it may require a character list and map.


    10. Satisfying ending to this series. ***SPOILER***One of my favorite things about this book is that the story continues after the heroes win the big battle. So many stories end at the victory, forgetting that after the war, the world must be rebuilt. This book shows us how Mari and her mage set up the rebuilding, without becoming tyrants themselves.


    11. I have devoured the 6 books of this series, and my only complaint is how little the characters relationship progressed in the last 2 or 3 books. They went thru more than their fair share yet it felt like their relationship stagnated in book 3. Constancy is important but there should have been more. That being said- great story, good overall arc.


    12. This ended so well, I loved it so much. I love how this changed from something that feels like a steampunk fantasy to a mixture of that and science fiction. I love the elements of science fiction that were thrown in. I do hope that in the next book there will be some discussion of how the communication between Earth and Demetr worked out in the end. I can't wait to listen to it!


    13. The knowledge of a continuation series sort of cuts at the suspense being built here. There is still some suspense, though, which speaks to the writer's skill. I'm also glad that this book left some questions unanswered; it gives some foundation to the sequel.



    14. I really enjoyed this series a lot. The romance between the two leads never got annoying and there werent any of those stupid cliches most relationships have in novels. What great fun to read.

    16. Actually brought the whole Pillars of Reality series to a decent close, while leaving a big string for a new series


    17. Overall, this is one of the best fantasy series that I've read this year. Although the ending is a bit of a letdown for me. (view spoiler)[I much prefer the book ends with Alain and Mari died at the end of the war. (hide spoiler)]




    18. It was a great finale to an really good series. At the beginning of the book it seemed like they would need several more books.



    19. I am going to miss this series now that it's over. Or is it? Mari and Alain have survived so many battles, hate, corruption, and keep coming. This last book had to bring a lot together, and resolve the earth connection, end ancient ruling class domination, deal with the aftermath of the ensuing power vacuum, give some conclusion to several main characters, and not betray readers by finishing a long series with an ending that leaves you to fill in too many blanks. And I felt like this does all of [...]


    20. I've really enjoyed the Pillars of Reality series published through Audible. Mari and Alain finally confront the Great Guilds in the sixth and final book of the current narrative arc. Throughout the early books, a sense of urgency drives the heroes on their quest to unite mechanics, mages, and commons for a better future. The dark alternative seen by Alain through his mage foresight is a great storm - overwhelming, all-encompassing violence leading to anarchy as the commons lash out at the high- [...]


    21. The whole thing was like 1 battle. Felt like a continuation of the previous book that didn't need it's own story.Interested to see where the story will go.


    22. Incoming rant:Unlile the other reviews I read on here, I will not miss this series. The only reason I actually read to its finality is because of my own stubborness.The book (and most of the series) does not feel fresh in any way. I really liked the first book, which made me want to keep reading. The main reason for my liking it was the unorthodox world-views and ideas that were presented, such as the mages views, but also a historically inspired, highly hierarchial system.However, what we're pr [...]


    23. The Wrath of the Great Guilds is the final instalment in the Pillars of Reality series (though I do suspect that there might very well be more to come), and for the most part, it was exactly like the rest of the series. By that, I mean that there was a lot of wasted potential in this book. Why you would ever want to spend 5 books creating a rich cast of supporting characters and then remove them for the large majority of the final book is completely beyond me. However, that is exactly what happe [...]
