#BookReview: The Last Road (Gods of the Caravan Road #5) by K.V. Johansen






Synopsis: When even the gods are dying, the hope of the world may lie in its most feared enemies.

A new god proclaimed as the All-Holy has arisen in the west and leads an army eastward, devouring the gods and goddesses of the lands between, forcibly converting their folk and binding their souls to himself. The very fabric of the world appears threatened by forces beyond the understanding of scholars and wizards alike. Even the great city of Marakand, where the roads of east and west converge, seems powerless to resist the All-Holy, though the devils Moth and Yeh-Lin and the assassin Ahjvar, undead consort of the god of distant Nabban, have come to stand with it. That may avail Marakand little, for the shapeshifting Blackdog, once a champion of the gods, follows obediently at the All-Holy’s heel and Lakkariss, the sword of the cold hells, is in his master’s hand.

My Review: This was a fantastic ending to this epic series. It was richly done and well paced.  I loved being in the author's world and falling in love with these characters.  I can not wait to see what the author comes up with next because I will totally be grabbing it.  My favorite book in this series was the Lady!! But this was such a great ending. 










Johansen’s writing is as lyrical and captivating as ever, and this may just be – fittingly – the best-crafted book of the series, the author inhabiting her world so comfortably, her characters so surely... The world of the Gods of the Caravan Road is one of the richest, most vibrant, most real worlds I’ve had the pleasure to visit. (Fantasy Hive)
A superbly crafted action/adventure novel by a master of the heroic fantasy genre. (Midwest Book Review)
