With the glories of the throne comes the responsibility of a queen, and Isolde knows she must return to her beloved Western Isle. This is the third in the Tristan and Isolde Series by Rosalind Miles and the story is tired. The first several chapters are a dull recap of the previous parts of the trilogy and do little to pull you into the new book. When finally the story did liven up and I felt it pulling me along to the next chapter, I was easily 90 pages in already.

This is the third in the Tristan and Isolde Series by Rosalind Miles and the story is tired. The most interesting part of the book was the opportunity to see the demise of so many characters who have been plodding along for 3 books. I enjoyed the first book greatly. Even then, the story is much of the same. The second was also interesting and my heart ached for the star-crossed lovers.

Also by Rosalind Miles. After this the Queen of Ireland died, and La Belle Isolde was Ireland’s Queen, but for a knight of Ireland who would be King. Then the Queen of Ireland made war on King Mark of Cornwall, and Sir Tristan rode to his uncle the King and took the battle on. And the Queen of Ireland had a daughter who was known for her beauty through all the world as La Belle Isolde. So went Isolde into Ireland to claim her own and fell into the hands of this knight, for that Tristan was away with his uncle Mark, whose great jealousy gave him no respite.

With the glories of the throne comes the responsibility of a queen, and Isolde knows she must return to her beloved . This series is just awful and the third book is the most awful because the author only uses the Tristan and Isolde source material in books one and two.

With the glories of the throne comes the responsibility of a queen, and Isolde knows she must return to her beloved Western Isle. With the glories of the throne comes the responsibility of a queen, and Isolde knows she must return to her beloved Western Isle.

The final thrilling chapter in the Tristan and Isolde trilogy. Isolde, heir to the throne of the Queens, is now a sovereign in her own right.

The best by far of the three novels brings to a conclusion Tristan and Isolde's story. They endure and triumph over many seemingly insurmountable obstacles, not the least of which is King Mark. However, they provide many of their own problems by, at times, doubting each others love and fidelity. Isolde decides that she can no longer remain married to King Mark of Cornwall. He has carried on with his mistress for years and was only a marriage of convenience from the start.

The third and sadly final book in the Isolde trilogy by Rosalind Miles.

The third and sadly final book in the Isolde trilogy by Rosalind Miles. Isolde makes a decision to leave her husand Mark to return to Ireland as the Picts are invading. Their new boy King has his sights on Ireland as well as makig Isolde his Queen. I was very interested to see how it would all end. Would it follow the traditional tales that see Tristan and Isolde killed at Mark's hands or would there be a happier resolution to the story. On the one hand I wanted it to stick to the original, but on the other I had a lot of time to get to know and care about the characters and a part of me really wanted them to get to live together openly in happiness.

The final thrilling chapter in the Tristan and Isolde trilogyIsolde, heir to the throne of the queens, is now a sovereign in her own right. With the glories of the throne comes the responsibility of a queen, and Isolde knows she must return to her beloved Western Isle. She can no longer tolerate her marriage to King Mark of Cornwall, a marriage she has accepted for years to save her country from the threat of war—and to be near her only love, Mark’s nephew, Tristan of Lyonesse. And so she leaves Cornwall and comes home to Ireland, where her lords face a growing threat from the warlike Picti, who live in the barren highlands to the north of England. The Picti have a bold new king, Darath, who is determined to take the riches of Ireland for his own people, whether by war or by marriage with Isolde. Isolde gathers her armies to confront the Picti while facing a violent conflict with King Mark, who vows he will not let a prize like Isolde, and Ireland, slip from his grasp. Isolde is last in a line of famous warrior queens who have guarded Ireland from time before memory, and now she—and her knight, Tristan—must play out their fate and face her enemies in a final battle, a war that could spell ruin for them both.To download a free copy of the discussion group guide in this book visit CrownPublishing.com.

All the characters are flat and one dimensional, to the point where I didn't care what happened to them. This comment is going in all three book reviews of this trilogy since I can't be bothered to keep them all straight. Believe me, I gave it an honest shot and read all three before making any final judgments.

There's a heroine who fits every stereotype of the "classic heroine": Fair/pale, bright hair, paragon of beauty, symbolizes absolute virtues of goodness which is never justified but supposed to be assumed, is a poor poor princess with men falling over themselves at first sight. Seems to get out of tough scraps by mysteriously whipping out talents introduced as weak plot devices.

You have a seductress who fits every stereotype of slattern possible: Darker featured, sumptuous in dress, powerful man cannot resist her charms, naturally an antagonist of the floppy heroine that does nothing all day but apparently but radiate "goodness" out of her arse as a counterpoint to the evil charms. Seems to do not much more than wear dresses in various shades of green, and fawn all over a king in a lascivious manner.

The dashing knight of the day who fits every stereotype of "heroism": Upright and honest to the point of stupidity, has no sense of self-preservation beyond bravely living off twigs or whatever you'd eat in a forest, thinks of nothing but reunited himself to the Maiden with White Hands. Dude, you are sooo smitten with this chick, but her kind manner and nice hands is ALL you can remember? I guess these two drips deserve each other.

These books make wonderful shelf fillers.

I think the first two books were much better than the last, wishing perhaps that the story should have ended with Tristan's death at the end of book two, like all other sources to this ancient story. The third book though good in some parts lacked in both drama and substance. I hate when books are drawn out in immense detail but this book certainly could have used it. Events such as the Picts leader's departure was too hasty, and unbelievable (like he would give up the Queen and ruling Ireland with just one short conversation, after his resolve to do so had been so ardent). Also was the event of Mark's demise, when he instantly regrets and realizes his sins as he is dying. I didn't like how Tristan is so guilt stricken when he kills men, which are all those seeking to bring about his demise, like Andred and Mark. If somebody wanted to kill me as those two did, I'd have no trouble giving them what they deserve, and I wouldn't cry about it afterward. Then there is Tristan and Isolde's relationship through most of the book. They blow hot and cold every time they are in each others presence, and they keep holding back words that should be spoken. Those aren't the dealings between true lovers. I may not read this series again, but I will consider this author's Guinevere series. Good series beginning and middle, bad ending.

This is the third in the Tristan and Isolde Series by Rosalind Miles and the story is tired. The first several chapters are a dull recap of the previous parts of the trilogy and do little to pull you into the new book. When finally the story did liven up and I felt it pulling me along to the next chapter, I was easily 90 pages in already. Even then, the story is much of the same. The author offers little new material and seems only to rework her previous ideas. The same characters are up to their same tactics to keep Tristan and Isolde from being together and being happy. Father Dominion is back to "bring Isolde down" and the lepers are back too. Again - same thing - new cover art. The new character of Darath offered some promise as he pledged his sword to Isolde; but I was disappointed that the story line came to an abrupt end and the character never reappeared. The most interesting part of the book was the opportunity to see the demise of so many characters who have been plodding along for 3 books. I enjoyed the first book greatly. The second was also interesting and my heart ached for the star-crossed lovers. Now, I'm a bit tired of the whole saga and I hope they live happily ever after because this story has been beaten to death.
