The Binding of the Three Roses is a work of fantasy fiction in a quest style subgenre and was penned by author Jason Hubbard. Written for mature audiences due to the presence of some explicit language, sexual situations and graphic violence, this novel brings The Three Roses trilogy to the end, and to its epic final conclusion. In this tale, Sean and Callie hope to settle into a simple feudal life, but Sean’s actions in the previous novel are determined to come back and haunt him. Magi leader Solomon Fontana has dreams, and Sean’s actions have gotten in the way. What follows is one last grueling ordeal in order for Sean and Callie to have the peace they desire, provided they survive long enough to find it.

Kane Bailey has certainly come a long way since the humble beginnings of this epic dark fantasy tale, which is intelligently balanced and well organized from start to finish. Author Jason Hubbard writes with the kind of confidence and authority that makes you feel in safe hands throughout the narration, despite the twisting events and atmospheric hardships that pour aplenty into the lives of Sean and Callie in this final tale. Magical tropes and religious ideas are combined to produce what feels like a strong and realistic world, one in which life is simple in some ways but far more dangerous and complex in others. This juxtaposition gives a great sense of danger, and this final work in the trilogy makes The Binding of the Three Roses a truly epic read for its immense highs and fraught lows.
