Librarian turned sorcerer. Sorcerer turned hero. Hero turned puppet.
The Solaris Empire found victory in the North and, at the cost of her heart and her innocence, Vhalla Yarl has earned her freedom. But the true fight is only beginning as the secret forces that have been lurking in the shadows, tugging at the strings of Vhalla's fate, finally come to light. Nowhere is safe, and Vhalla must tread carefully or else she'll fall into the waiting arms of her greatest foe. Or former lover.
In my other reviews of this series I mentioned that the author was fond of ripping my heart out and setting it on fire. After this book I don’t even think I have a heart left because she has destroyed it. I thought the emotions I felt from the previous books was intense but it was nothing compared to how heart breaking this book was. I hate and love the author at the same time, if that’s even possible. I hate her for doing this to me but love her for writing this series. SO MANY EMOTIONS GUYS! I physically hurt after finishing this book. The author starts off by repairing the broken pieces of your heart that she broke in the last book and then like 75% through she destroys it again! Seriously, after that 75% mark I was an emotional wreck. I don’t want to read the next book just because I’m terrified of what it’s going to do to me.
I’m not even sure what else to say about this book because even though it’s been about a week since I read it, I still haven’t fully healed. I can only imagine what’s coming for us in the next book. I can tell you that the characters are just as fantastic as the previous books and they’re starting to really work together as a team. They’re starting to pool their strengths together and they really are trying to do what’s best for the kingdom even though the emperor is screwing it up. I’m also going to warn you not to trust ANYONE because they will stab you in the back!
I think this book actually had the best plot so far. It even beats out the first book. There was a lot happening but it didn’t feel rushed or jump around a lot. Everything that happened made sense (even though I wish some parts didn’t 🙁 ) and everything flowed really smoothly. The author is also really great at ending her books with intense cliff hangers so make sure you have all the books before jumping into one because the wait is horrible.
I have no complaints about this book! Well except that she’s killing off all my favourite characters! I could do without that honestly. Also I kind of hated how there was no Aldrik for the first chunk of this book. I love him too and wished we could have seen more of him at the beginning!
This is a fantastic book for YA fantasy lovers. If you love magic, romance, and feeling all your emotions at once, then this is the book for you! I know a lot of people hesitate to read lesser know books but I honestly feel this book is worth the read.
This is one of those books that comes pretty close to perfection (in my eyes anyways). It’s rare that one book can make you fell so many things at once! It’s a must read for sure.
