“No tricks, Chick,” he said.
“Just you and me, Snakey.”
On he came. No way of knowing what strike he was planning. The way he was walking looked as if he had in mind to walk on the by.
“Heya!” he called softly. “Do you lo-ove me?”

The sacred island of Anacrea is home to the Noble Warriors and their families. But after an enemy city destroys their entire island, Seeker, Morning Star, and Wildman go their separate ways, never to possibly see one another ever again.

Noman is a great way to end the series; it wraps it all up without feeling as if there was something missing. Like the first two in the trilogy, Noman is exciting and keeps you captivated in its medieval yet magical feeling. Noman also has a bit of a spiritual feel to it. There’s a lot of strife between the different people and their beliefs, not particularly in this volume, but in the earlier books of the series. Noman is an interesting, fictitious book that kept me hooked until the end.

I would recommend this book to fantasy lovers above the age of 12 because there are some parts in the book that might frighten younger readers and there is also quite a bit of violence, although it doesn’t go into a lot of detail.

I give Noman 5 stars.
