As much as I wanted to love this book I didnt I thought it was a good book but I don t feel it like it measures up to the other books in this series The reunion between ash and Jenna was amazing but that was all we saw from them that stood out and as someone who loved the dynamic between ash and Jenna I felt that after the reunion their relationship fell flat and I get the feeling that they were pushed a bit to the sideline and the same can be said of the other couples with a slight exception of Destin and Evan as I felt their longing for each other felt a lot real so when they finally met again it was incredibly satisfying Also for a moment it felt like Lily and shadow were going to find solace in each other but it never went anywhere I do think my disappointment with the relationships and how I feel they got a little bit forgotten is mainly due to me liking Ash and Jenna much than the others and since they didn t have much screen time as a couple I was left wanting than what I got The author touched a but on both Jenna s and ash insecurity of whether there was any room for ash but then never explored itThe ending felt very much like it was rushed and I would argue the entire book felt rushed as Cinda had to tie up a lot of plot points which she did a very good job of but I think the series might have benefited from one book The end of the empress felt a bit meh it never seemed like anyone was truly in any danger as they had a bunch of dragons with then who could decimate entire armies and while the empress was supposed to be very powerful it never really crossed my mind that she would be able to compete with all of them there I new Jenna wouldn t die from that as it has been stated several times that she has resistance to heat though it did cross my mind of how the earlier empresses succeeded in killing Jenna s ancestors when they are almost immune to fire The entire seuence played as a comedy than a life and death situation and if that was what the author was going for then I can t say anything else but I disagree with that choiceSo in conclusion everything fell a bit flat most likely due to there being multiple coupleswars and different plot points and it was just too much to tie it all in together without skipping important moments The Castle Diaries reunion between ash and Jenna was amazing but that was all we saw from them that stood out and as someone who loved the dynamic between ash and Jenna I felt that after the The Song of the Mockingbird reunion their Sir Halmanac and the Crimson Star relationship fell flat and I get the feeling that they were pushed a bit to the sideline and the same can be said of the other couples with a slight exception of Destin and Evan as I felt their longing for each other felt a lot Souls in the Great Machine real so when they finally met again it was incredibly satisfying Also for a moment it felt like Lily and shadow were going to find solace in each other but it never went anywhere I do think my disappointment with the Judge Dredd Chronicles #19 relationships and how I feel they got a little bit forgotten is mainly due to me liking Ash and Jenna much than the others and since they didn t have much screen time as a couple I was left wanting than what I got The author touched a but on both Jenna s and ash insecurity of whether there was any THE WALLPAPER CHASE room for ash but then never explored itThe ending felt very much like it was SpongeBob Mix Match rushed and I would argue the entire book felt Rules of the Knife Fight rushed as Cinda had to tie up a lot of plot points which she did a very good job of but I think the series might have benefited from one book The end of the empress felt a bit meh it never seemed like anyone was truly in any danger as they had a bunch of dragons with then who could decimate entire armies and while the empress was supposed to be very powerful it never Know What I Saw? really crossed my mind that she would be able to compete with all of them there I new Jenna wouldn t die from that as it has been stated several times that she has The Goodbye Girl Vocal Selections resistance to heat though it did cross my mind of how the earlier empresses succeeded in killing Jenna s ancestors when they are almost immune to fire The entire seuence played as a comedy than a life and death situation and if that was what the author was going for then I can t say anything else but I disagree with that choiceSo in conclusion everything fell a bit flat most likely due to there being multiple coupleswars and different plot points and it was just too much to tie it all in together without skipping important moments

Deathcaster review ô 103 SPLINTERED ALLEGIANCEWarrior Alyssa ana’Raisa would do anything to protect her home the Fells and her legacy the Gray Wolf Line But as a prisoner of Empress Celestine Lyss is forced to turn her fearsome talents as an army commander against her beloved homeland Refusal would swiftl. This review was originally posted on Books of My HeartAnother series in the The Seven Realms is complete and we have fallen in love with another generation of its characters journeying along with them against foes both new and old in their uest to preserve the Gray Wolf Line and way of life in the Fells I will not add too many details as to not spoil the series Deathcaster was good it had most of the things I hoped for in a final book the reunions of characters and the culmination of events to vanuish the main Villains to finally bring peace to the Shattered Kingdoms BUT for a 600 page finale I think I expected a little wrap up at the end or an epilogue set a few years in the future just to give me total closure Still it is very implied where things are headed and so I won t complain too much on that one I would have probably given this just one star if I hadn t read The Crimson Crown which is one of the best final books a of series I ve ever readThere were some very tense and action packed moments All the players are very scattered Lyla and Destin are in the Fells trying to keeps Raisa s council in check Lyss is across the sea with Celestine trying not to become blood sworn and training Celestine s army to attack the Fells hoping she can escape or lead then a different way Hal wants desperately to find and save Lyss but keeps getting pulled into fighting within his homeland Hal is trying desperately to find a way to help keep Lyss s ueendom intact for when she finally returns Jenna and Caz are also on Celestine s Island waiting for the perfect moment to Burn the Nest teaming up with Lyss and finding some baby Dragons along the way Evan is still playing the long game with frenemies everywhere looking for a way to destroy Celestine And then there is Adrian sul Han who is both looking for Lyss and Jenna with the help of one of the Magemarked and trying to figure out who is attempting to kill off everyone in their familyWith so many different PoVs and plot lines going the entire story had a lot of ground to cover to make it to a good conclusion and cover it it did I really loved most of this book and some of the reunions were so touching and much needed since we haven t seen a couple of the characters together since the very first book I was a little surprised with who was ultimately behind the plot against the Greywolf throne but it seemed a little fitting I enjoyed seeing Raisa outsmart her enemies yet again and still be in the background to the new generation The plot arc with Celestine fell just a smidge flat for me after all the buildup but why she was looking for the Magemarked was pretty original and added a lot of tension to the story Overall there are a lot of fantastic things for a YA fantasy novel series conclusion Yes the series is a little guilty of some instances of insta love and few other YA tropes we all know well but the story works and I love the both the male and female cast are strong and bring different attributes to the story Not one individual is overpowered or the chosen one it took a team of players to make everything happen Plus there are baby dragons shhh don t tell There s a rumor going around that you died at Delphi but the witch ueen brought you back to life because she fell in love with your dead body What Hal stared at him horrified while Robert stifled laughter No worries sir LeFevre said hastily I don t think too many believed it If anything it enhanced your reputation Remy said When Evan asked Jenna for advice on how to win Cas over she rolled her eyes You put a collar around his neck locked him in a dark hold and carried him across the ocean Don t you think that might have been off putting Evan cast about for excuses He was wearing the collar when I bought him in the market That s another thing You don t buy dragons or have dragons or tame dragons Dragons are not weapons or airships They are comrades You partner with them you bond with them or you don t He burned my ship Evan said Doesn t that make us even Even is for enemies and rivals You re going to have to give him than that if you want him to trust you Narration Kia Mia Guest does a pretty good job with the extended cast There were a few instances where a couple characters sounded a little alike to me but overall with the large cast she did great with keeping both the narrative and the emotion of the

Deathcaster review ô 103 He forces aligned against the Seven Realms as well as the enemies within the castleTHE DEADLY COST OF PEACEMaster storyteller Cinda Williams Chima delivers spellbinding action bittersweet reunions and dazzling revelations in this indispensable conclusion to the Shattered Realms seri. Not Chima s best The Seven Realms and Shattered Realms cobbled big shoes for Deathcaster to fill but Chima falls short for one of the first times in resolving itThe world building remains fantastic readers are brought through extensions of what we ve seen before and with a renewed purpose to it all Characters receive well deserved returns on emotional investment and find their own in some ways the joining of multiple arcs is fluid and excellentHowever some are not given the endings that Cinda built up to Certain characters are thrown not left to the wayside and certain arcs seem almost abandoned It feels almost like a finished product that received an editorial yes but cut 200 pages of the last 300 to the audience s lossI can t give this less than 3 stars because of how well written the character interactions and worldbuilding finish out but I left a bit disappointed and bitter by the overuse of certain plot devices and poor management of arc endings Avoiding spoilers but this might imply some it is a slap in the face for characters that we know and lovehate for their intense personalities to have no personal interactions for 150 pages before an unceremonious death or for romances to appear out of implications involving characters who had less lines in this iteration than in their eponymous previous books It is extremely disappointing to have watched nations struggle in battle for 7 straight books only to seemingly have no armies exist on almost any front in DeathcasterSPOILERS HERE ONLY to have Ardenscourt the entire Desert Coast of Carthis and Fellsmarch fall without a pitched battle is ludicrous without explanation Jarat s incursion into the fells not being met by any resistance or patrols was as confusing to the reader as it was to Lyss on her way in All battles were merely alluded to and almost entirely took place in the east of the Fells with only minor main character interference Char Dunedain doesn t even appear outside of having her name mentioned once or twice It shockingly and saddeningly felt as though Chima wanted to describe Destin as like a snake shedding one skin to step into another for the hundredth time than to give Ash of his personality than hi mom I m home I like Jenna she s hot in the entire book Sad as he was my favorite character for his introspection in ways that Seph Han Alister and Amon Byrne has evoked in the past some of Chima s best written characters imo It was also extremely frustrating to see Micah Bayar brought to his lowest form of representation yet Readers received implications in Stormcaster that he fathered Mellony s daughter Julianna which are completely not addressed here Bayar is conveniently absent from the plot in opinion presence and development purely to simplify everything The anticlimactic ending of Celestine disturbed me as well She had absolutely no voice after splitting ways with Lyss she had no opinion on the warfront losses in the Fells besides as an airstrike target and no real ending Did she not know what Jenna s powers were It seems to me that if Jenna can survive fire and a lava pit the sacrifice by lava pit plan would have been different or at least it would be suggested that Jenna surprised her Something other than being chomped by a third string young dragon would be appropriate and no I don t see it as a fun ironic twist for an empress s death Evan and Destin didn t have enough time to talk and figure out what they re doing next in the end They needed that Or at least I did I would rather screen time of the two of them than just hear Lyss say oh yeah they re gonna sail around probably to Tarvos as a side noteFinally seriously The seemingly end game threat of Lord Darian s return in another body gets taken care of entirely by Speaker Obi Wan Jemson throwing some dirt and water I expected an Aediion reprisal with Han to finish that plot My expectations are irrelevant I suppose but it was disappointing to see Han not get another speaking moment SPOILERS ENDIf you loved Evan and Destin and Hal as I did their first times around in PoV roles or if you are excited to see Hadley DeVilliers Lila Byrne Julianna Barrett Evan s crews and Magret again you ll still enjoy this book My opinion don t expect to be satisfied with this iteration of Jenna Ash Raisa Micah Bayar Hanson Alister Fire Dancer or especially Breon and Celestine There are fun new characters to look forward to as wellAll in alltl dr it felt to me that Chima watched How To Train Your Dragon and forgot what made these books so great in the first place her characters the respect she showed them in their writing and the power of emotions and conversation in bringing that value forth The good things aren t gone but I was hoping for greatness
