|Plot Summary of Mountains of Channadran: The Winter War 3|
Tristan, apprentice wizard and newly crowned King of Calandra should have been able to rest on his laurels. After all, he had found the ring of Allaire and woken the sleeping princess, winning her as his bride and then he found the lost sword of Calandra, which enabled him to be crowned. But with Nimir, Lord of Winter, Ice & Storm, determined to take over all of the continent, Tristan knew that he had to so something before his beautiful land turned into a land of frost and snow. With his beloved Elisena by his side, as well as a few faithful companions, Tristan set out to do the impossible - confront Nimir on his own ground. Throughout his adventures, Tristan would make new friends, confront old enemies, and accomplish the impossible while failing at simple tasks all while Nimir waited on his mountain, plotting and planning his next attack...
This is the wonderful conclusion to Dexter's The Winter War trilogy begun with The Ring of Allaire and The Sword of Calandra. Tristan is such a great character to get to know and I felt like I knew him and was learning and growing with him while I was reading about his adventures. Susan Dexter really made me care for her characters and I am sad that the adventure is over, but I know that I will go back and reread and reenjoy this trilogy for many years to come! If you enjoy fantasy at all, you definitely should check out this series as it has all of the hallmarks of classic fantasy at its best.
