What if you were able to have someone you love back from the dead?

Reunited, they should be stronger than ever, but none of them have returned to the palace the same.

When the man she loved died, Rissa had a choice: fall apart or let the anger take control.

Her hatred, her need for vengeance filled every part of her, turning her from sarcastic princess to unashamed killer.

But now Davion is back. Will he recognize the girl he left behind?

As they return home to a kingdom on the brink of war, Trystan, Davion, and Rissa realize the magic they sought means nothing if they don't have the right people to wield it.

A rescue mission. A siege. And the greatest battle Dreach-Sciene has ever seen.

The quest is over, but the war has just begun.

Absolutely blown away!!! Fantastic ending to a fantastic series! Mastery of Earth by Michelle Bryan & M. Lynn is the final book in the Legends of the Tri-Gard series. Magic is restored in Dreach-Sciene, and war looms with Dreach-Dhoun. Trystan, Rissa, Davi, and Alixa have come nearly full-circle, and it’s time to complete what they started. Be prepared for heartache and tears as the series comes to a conclusion.

From Orphan to Prince, From Prince to King
What appealed to me most about this series is the characters. The authors put them through hell, and despite that they come out better. They adapt and change to meet what is required of them. Seriously y’all that takes some fantastic writing. Well done ladies!

Trystan and Davi are my two favorites. Trystan goes from being a prince to king overnight. The authors handle him so well. He grieves, he’s angry, he fights being the king, but ultimately accepts it. It all feels so real and believable. Davi is no different. In fact, of all the characters, I feel he deals with the most. Davi is angry and hurt and confused for a majority of the book, but he handles it with his humor and withdrawing from his friends. Why? Because he doesn’t want to hurt them.

Magic and War
Why is it that these two things always go together? It seems you can’t have one without the other. The same is the case here. The world-building though and the buildup is edge-of-your-seat, hold-your-breath fantastic. I couldn’t read it fast enough. The scheming and multiple points of view create a dramatic irony that is unmatched. I love being able to get into the heads of all the main characters. My heart ached for them as they struggled with the trials ahead of them.

My Final Thoughts
Mastery of Earth is the perfect conclusion to the Legends of the Tri-Gard series. Michelle Bryan & M. Lynn delivered a well-written, fully-fleshed out story. The war, the magic, the romance….all of it is perfect and exactly what I wanted for the characters I’ve grown to love so much. If you enjoy high fantasy, I highly recommend this book/series.
