Review of Guild of the Cowry Catchers, book 5

Book #13.The Guild of the Cowry Catchers: Book 5, by Abigail Hilton. Unabridged audio.

This is the last book in the Cowry Catcher series, and brings the series to a satisfying conclusion. My reviews of books 3 & 4 are here, and here.

The adventures of Gerard and Silveo continue, and in this book they have teamed with Gwain, whose book has sparked rebellions. Now, they seek freedom for the fauns of Maijha Minor from the tyranny of the wyverns.They have lit the sparks of revolution, and now they have to live with the consequences.

However, things are not as they seem when they arrive on the island. Priestess Morchella is pulling strings, and the fauns may want their own brand of revenge. Gerard lost everything last time he stepped onto Maijha Minor. If he’s not careful, the same could happen again.

Hilton does a good job bringing the series to an end, and the resolutions make sense for the world and for the characters. The way that Silveo's story ends (or maybe it doesn't) is strange, but given some of the other strange things in this world, that is nothing to be too worried about.

Again, Hilton dos a fine job narrating and producing the audio episodes, and the vast majority of the full cast of voice actors do excellent jobs.
