I'll start off by saying that I LOVE this series! It's such a fantastic series and I really wish that more people knew about it! When I received a review copy of this book, it absolutely made my day! This book wasn't as awesome as I expected, but it's still fantastic and it's such a great end to the series!
Aris is now Promised Milek, but the war is still at large, now more than ever.The Safaran's have a secret weapon, a bomb that can wipe out all Atalantan life. They must stop this weapon, but they haven't found it yet. Even worse, there's a spy in their midst. The war is going to end soon, one way or another.
My main problem with this book is how slow it was compared to the others. I felt like it took awhile for the action to take place. Now, I was on vacation while I was reading this book, so that might be why I felt like things were slow-going. After awhile, though, this book really picked up speed and it was intense! So much happened near the end and there ended up being so many twists! I ended up being satisfied with the ending!
One of my favorite things about this series is the growth of Aris. She grows so much in this series and she has become such a strong character. While this book doesn't focus so much on Aris, she does grow more as a character. This book has such a large array of characters, many of which you get to see the perspective of. Tracy Banghart doe such a fabulous job with all the characters! They were incredibly 3-dimensional and I felt like I really knew their story.
As for romance, I still ship it!
I love this series and I am sad that it's over, but it ended fabulous! It was slow-going at first, but it really picked up pace near the end! I strongly recommend this series and I look forward to more books by Tracy Banghart!
