War has begun. Arin is in the thick of it with untrustworthy new allies and the empire as his enemy. Though he has convinced himself that he no longer loves Kestrel, Arin hasn’t forgotten her, or how she became exactly the kind of person he has always despised. She cared more for the empire than she did for the lives of innocent people—and certainly more than she did for him.
At least, that’s what he thinks.
In the frozen north, Kestrel is a prisoner in a brutal work camp. As she searches desperately for a way to escape, she wishes Arin could know what she sacrificed for him. She wishes she could make the empire pay for what they’ve done to her.
But no one gets what they want just by wishing.
As the war intensifies, both Kestrel and Arin discover that the world is changing. The East is pitted against the West, and they are caught in between. With so much to lose, can anybody really win?
Listen. This is going to be short because there's really not a whole lot I can say without giving away things so I'm going to just get down to it.
This book is EVERYTHING us fans wanted and needed it to be. The entire time, I was on edge. My emotions were all over the place and I was invested. This book was sooooooooo good. There is one word you could describe this book . . .
I do believe every fan of this series will be insanely happy with the conclusion of this series. Granted, I'm sure you'll be just like me and sad and completely lost that it's all over BUT you'll be satisfied. You'll be more than satisfied. You will sit there, with a big ass grin on your face because that's how happy this book will make you.
Marie, I can't thank you enough for writing this brilliant trilogy. I have never read a book or series that has felt so magical with just the words. Lyrical, even. I'm thrilled to say the hype behind this whole series is utterly deserving. Believe the hype - this time it's real, y'all.
Thank you Macmillan for allowing me the amazing opportunity (and surprise) to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
