I'm having real trouble reviewing this book. I'm a huge Darkness that comes before fan, and if not as enthused about Aspect-Emperor still reading each installment rabidly to see where the unpredictable tale goes. The Great Ordeal without a doubt, has got to be the most confusing, provoking, bizar...

Another dark gem from Bakker but honestly I wouldn't say this is his best work. This is supposed to be the first half of the final book and it showed as majority of the book-though still enthralling- seemed like a set up for the final one. In fact, I thought I was gonna give it a highly rated 4...

Fans of R. Scott Bakker’s The Second Apocalypse series slog on, book after book, chapter after chapter, one page to the next, seeking revelation. In Earwa, Bakker has crafted a world so dense and possessed with epochal mystery that readers find themselves consuming every morsel only to be twice a...

(WARNING: Contains Minor Spoilers)
The Great Ordeal, the penultimate novel in R. Scott Bakker’s Aspect-Emperor series, is finally upon us. His fans have been waiting a long time fo...

I'm at a bit of a loss for what to say about this volume. It was certainly enjoyable, but after what I considered the superlative efforts of the first two books in this part of the series (The Judging Eye and The White Luck Warrior) I was perhaps a tad let down by this one. Most likely this is du...

As much as I have adored Bakker's style throughout this slog of slogs: The Great Ordeal does not feel like the payoff worth the weight of years behind it. The book seethes with intellect, with possibility and dense worldbuilding, but in the end, I'm sad to say, it suffers from a sense of too much...

It would be impossible to discuss anything that happens in the third book of R. Scott Bakker’s Aspect Emperor series without massive spoilage so I’m only going to hint at what’s happened since the end of The White-Luck Warrior and offer a few thoughts on the series [NB: I’m going to assume reader...

"The Board is set, the pieces are moving..." I can't think of a better description for The Great Ordeal. If you've made it this far then you're most likely a fan of the "Grimdark" masterpiece that is The Prince of Nothing saga. Fans have eagerly awaited years for this volume, and let me be the fi...

Actual rating: 3.5 stars.
Too much setting the table, not enough eating dinner.
Honestly, this book is a 5-star read at times, a 2-star read at times, and an overall frustrating experience in "if only I had the time to go back and re-read all of the books in the series, or at least the two precedi...
