Do the books keep following this pattern? (Pun intended)

    So I finished book 3 and I found it pretty entertaining, but I'm noticing a pattern emerging. Seems like the characters split off into smaller groups, traveling around throughout the story, and all reunite at the end for an epic climax. Does this keep happening? Just curious!

    No. In fact, book three is the last book this happens. There is (usually :look) an epic climax, but they do not all reunite...

    I hope this isn't considered saying too much :look

    Yeah, the first three are definitely classic quest books, but after that, they are more varied
