  • Original series brought to a thrilling end

    by on

    The Colours of Madeline series is an ambitious bit of writing. It runs thick with interlacing relationships and complications that have sucked in countless fans. I think Moriarty needed every single one of the 508 pages of Tangle of Gold to give it the ending it deserved.

    This fantasy has an enthralling originality but even-so, this final book has the stakes pretty darn high with classic world-ending catastrophe just around the corner. By some touch of genius, the whole thing comes to a deeply satisfactory end that readers will rejoice in.
