In a world at war, who can you trust?

The empire rests on the edge of a knife, and sisters Ashyn and Moria are the handle and the blade. Desperate to outmaneuver the evil Alvar Kitsune, whose hold on the people grows stronger every day, Emperor Tatsu begs Moria to put aside past grievances and ally with Gavril—at least long enough to make an attempt on Alvar’s life. Meanwhile, reunited with her long-lost grandfather, Ashyn discovers that she is the key to a ritual that could reawaken an ancient dragon and turn the tide of the coming battle in their favor.

But with lies and betrayal lurking around every corner, Ashyn and Moria will have to decide once and for all where their allegiances are. And it may not be where their hearts would lead them…

In this breathtaking final book in her epic trilogy the Age of Legends, #1 New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong blends fantasy, action, and romance to give readers the unforgettable ending they’ve been waiting for.


I’m 99% sure it’s impossible for me to not love a Kelley Armstrong book. Seriously! Or maybe she’s just that incredible (which I’d believe). I loved the sister relationship in this book. I don’t think there’s enough of those, especially in fantasy. Sometimes there’s the whole younger.older sibling thing going on but it was nice to see sisters as equals. I think that’s probably my favourite part of this whole series. These sisters really work together and know each other. Also they eat have a special guardian (a pet) who helps watch over them and I really love how they interact with everyone.


I had nothing wrong with this whole series, not just the book. I did wish that my ship would have won but we can’t always get what we want, can we? I maybe wish that there was a little something more to this series but it was still good. Not unbelievable or amazing but really good and I’m happy with how it turned out.


I’d recommend this to anyone looking for an easy fantasy book to read. This one isn’t too complicated or long which makes it pretty easy to get swept into. It would also be great for anyone just starting out in fantasy that wants to get a little taste of the potential of the genre.


This was a great ending to a great series. While there was nothing really special, it still makes for something fun to read.

“As they neared the spot from which the noise had come, Moria saw a hand lying on the pathway. It appeared to be attached to a body, which was a relief. Again, these days, one could not guarantee such a thing.”
