And this is the third of the trilogy, with a really, really stupid title. The main story thunders along, getting slowly more and more complicated as it turns out that both Paul and the love of his life (with whom he shares a cordial mutual loathing) were bred for their roles.

In the end, this being the end of the trilogy, it all comes right, if you can count a double-strength love potion as being the path of true love. In the process, the story has got hideously confused, and almost no-one turns out to be on the side one thought.

A definite end to the series.
