    1. Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick & Dirty: A city under siege and desperate times calls for desperate measures.Opening Sentence: “There is perhaps, some universal truth that no has seen fit to tell me about.”The Review:Rojan is back, his brother Perak is the Archdeacon, and being a Mage is no longer illegal. Sadly the enemy is literally at the gate and times are quite crazy! This book picks up not long after the end of book 2, which I think I have reviewed all three books for you [...]

    2. So um man this book was such a boring finale there was just too much description of pointless mundane things and the term "we are screwed" was used far too much.What happened in this series:Basically everything started when Rojan's niece was abducted and taken down to the pain factories. Then the archdeacon (city's ruler) who turned out to be Rojan's father was framed and killed by Rojan when he made his father's face look like his using his pain magic when he discovered his father was the one w [...]

    3. Mahala is under siege. The Storad are poised to storm the city and seize its monopoly on trade across the continent. The Archdeacon is powerless to stop the cardinals and other high-ranking members of the city's elite from fleeing. It falls to Rojan Dizon and his accomplices to find a way of saving the vertical city or seeing it destroyed.Concluding the Rojan Dizon trilogy, Last to Rise picks up on dangling plot threads from Fade to Black and Before the Fall and attempts to tie them together nic [...]

    4. A satisfying conclusion to a wonderful trilogy. A compelling and well-rendered world, a wonderful magic system, and an intriguingly flawed protagonist. Francis Knight is definitely a new star in the genre, and I hope she writes some more fantasy soon.Warning, this review does contain spoilers.This installment keeps the wry, snarky tone of the earlier volumes, but it's darker overall. Things are very desperate for Mahala and the characters, and there is little breathing space between crises. The [...]

    5. Last to Rise is the final book in a trilogy (all published in 2013), and I'm sorry to say that I never read the first two books.  This was a review copy, provided by the publisher.  I figure that if the publisher thinks it's fine to read only the last book, then that's what I'll do.  But I always felt a little behind while reading this.  That I wasn't 'in' on the story that was central to getting to this point.That said, I found the characters and the world-building extremely well-crafted an [...]

    6. Fazit:Und auch im dritten und letzen Teil geht es spannend weiter und es läuft auf ein Showdown hinaus. Das Ende ist wirklich überraschend und ich habe einfach nur mitgefiebert. Eine Reihe die wirkliche gewachsen ist.Bewertung:Das ist der dritte Band der Reihe.Ich kam wieder super in die Geschichte rein, da ich mich noch sehr gut an Teil 1 und 2 erinnern konnte. Auch an den gewöhnungsbedürftigen Schreibstil habe ich mich bereits gewöhnt.Es geht weiter mit den Storad, die vor der Tür stehen [...]

    7. The city rises upwards not across. Those at the bottom, as you might imagine are rather downtrodden and rarely see light, or much of it anyway. Those at the top, in the clouds, are living on cloud nine; that would by the Ministry. You do Not cross the Ministry. Rojan freed the Downsiders from the Pit they resided in and when doing so he doomed the city to starvation unless he can do something about it. He may act like he doesn’t care about much but people are beginning to crack the code about [...]

    8. My oh my! I think that my favorite series of books in recent memory are the 3 books in the Rojan Dizon series. The ending of the this book is so satisfying that I actually cried. It's hard to write a synopsis of the 3 books, but I wanted to inform anyone who enjoys a good dystopian yarn should read all three. The setting is the key: Mahala, a city built in a valley that outgrew its boundaries by building up, very far into the sky. It lies in the middle of a trade route so a monopoly is acheived, [...]

    9. Rounds off the series with a decent conclusion (although it dragged a little bit in places), and perhaps leaves it open to revisit the world again.

    10. “Goddess save me from idiots and holy men” Rojan, Last to Rise. I have to admit that Last to Rise was a very anticipated novel for me. It is the third and as far as I know final book in a trilogy of books, which the first one was Fade to Black which came out back in January of this year. Yes an entire trilogy in a year. The book, as part of the trilogy is amazing. Everything is coming to a head, the Storad are at the gate; literally. Things are going to get much worse before they get better. [...]

    11. The Rojan Dizon series was always packed with dark emotion and barely contained rage, and I enjoyed every second of all 3 books.The worst thing I can say about this book is that it was predictable. But that's to be expected as the events have been building up for the past 2 books, and for Pasha, Jake, and Rojan, they're just too broken for redemption or salvation. Pasha and Rojan both fall into the black; something not unexpected in the least, and Jake is just too brittle to go on.The ending is [...]

    12. A solid enough conclusion to the series. The writing kept getting better and better, though I felt the plot strayed from time to time, and occasionally I even got lost as to where the characters were and what was going on. I realized, though, that these were merely quick transitions meant to jar the reader a bit, as I sensed a pattern to them as the book went on.I enjoyed the series, especially the expansion of the world the story was set in. I wouldn't mind seeing even more of this, as well as [...]

    13. This is the third in the series about Rojan Dizon and the vertical city of Mahala. The city is under siege by the invading Storad, the few remaining and mostly-untrained mages are lost as to how to save the city and it seems only a miracle will do the job. But that is Rojan’s stock-in-trade and the miracle that he pulls off is both massive and heartbreaking at the same time. This is another of those books where it seems no one wins at the end; but getting there was a total rush. The whole seri [...]

    14. Francis F. Knight has another strange background, a city built on the edge of a cliff and magic that requires pain to work. Mahala is under siege by enemies determined to destroy their new acceptance of the wizards of pain. Rojan Dizon apparently was responsible for the rise of these wizards in the first two books of this series. In Last to Rise ( paper from Orbit) he, not only has to find potential wizards, he has to find a way for his city to survive and face a major sacrifice himself. I’m t [...]

    15. This book was recommended for me via Flipboard.I personally loved this entire trilogy. The dystopian world is gritty and detailed, the storyline is entertaining (while somewhat predictable in places) and the main characters are beautifully flawed and interesting. While several reviews have hinted at misogyny and potential religious slander, there are plenty of little gems about this book that I loved. An awesome femme fatal, a brilliant bromance between the two main characters and an unexpected [...]

    16. What an ending, bravely done. I say ending I suspect there is scope left for revisiting the vertical city of Mahala . No punches pulled by this author, not to be expected when the use of magic is fuelled by pain. You really can't help liking the central character in this regardless of his many flaws. Not entirely sure about Rojan's obsession concerning the smell of bacon throughout the narrative but overall an excellent read. Looking forward to more :)

    17. A fitting end to a awesome trilogy. Seeing the "rise" of Rojan, the definition of reluctant hero, to a hero that could be looked up too. The whole series was awesome, one of the most interesting worlds I have seen in fantasy in the past several years.I look forward to whatever Ms. Knight has in store in the future.

    18. Book 3 of the Rojan Dizon series tells the story of the Storad siege of Mihala that starts in book 2. It takes place over a very short period of time, but a lot happens, most of it to Rojan and very little of it good. So Francis Knight keeps up the high standard set in the first 2 books and, trust me, the ending is not a cop-out.

    19. Hmmmmmm. Well. That wasn't an ending I expected. To be quite honest, it leaves me feeling rather sad & wistful. There's not much I can say about it without giving too much away. Suffice it to say that I'm glad to have stumbled upon this series, and these books have earned a forever home on one of my shelves.

    20. i had fairly high hopes for this series but in the end, it was disappointing. the world was interesting but not entirely sensical? logically coherent? i appreciate the ending and the sense of real consequences, but overall, i can't say that i would pick this up again willingly.

    21. Became sheer agony and incredible boredom around p. 150 or so. Like watching a really long dull death scene. Predictable ending-and not pleasant. Wish I'd skipped the whole trilogy. Unless there will be another? 2.5 but will up to 3 if there is another book to come.

    22. Wow, this is a trilogy. The first two books were so good that i got from the libary that when i found out they had not got this last one i promptly went and brought it.what can i say just brilliant from start to finish, the ending was great. Not everybody's thing but 5 stars for a gripping read.
