OH WELL! TWO OUT OF THREE AIN’T SO BAD.
Regrettably, the Quicksilver Trilogy falls at the final hurdle, with this disappointingly anti-climactic third book.

Quicksilver Twilight is the concluding part of Stan Nicholls’ Quicksilver Trilogy, and I must confess that I approached it with a certain amount of trepidation. For one thing, there are numerous examples of trilogies which had very good first and second books, only to be tarnished by a poor third. But what really concerned me was that, to my mind at least, the way book two ended severely limited what could unfold in this one. I wish that I could say that my concerns were unwarranted, but sadly Quicksilver Twilight is not the ending that this trilogy so richly deserved.
