    In the history of Osolis and Glacium, the Solati have never lost a war on their home ground, Osolis. In this installment, Olina and Jovan are forced to finally venture to Osolis after being challenged by the Tatuma as she wages war on them. As battles are fought and secrets are unraveled during the final war in Fantasy of Freedom, all loose ends are neatly tied.

I expected much more behind Kendrick In the history of Osolis and Glacium, the Solati have never lost a war on their home ground, Osolis. In this installment, Olina and Jovan are forced to finally venture to Osolis after being challenged by the Tatuma as she wages war on them. As battles are fought and secrets are unraveled during the final war in Fantasy of Freedom, all loose ends are neatly tied. However, I can’t say that there were any bizarre twists that made this last installment truly epic. I expected much more behind Kendrick’s assassination because Olina’s search for answers had spanned a total of four books – perhaps a small but deadly army who acted in the name of vengeance towards Glacium’s king and whose master plan is to overthrow him, or even a complex and mysterious backstory linked to Kendrick’s past that would result in more repercussions in the final war – but we were given but a simple isolated incident that had been put to motion by only one man, who has no significant or deep ties to any rulers of kingdoms and whose only role was linear and uncomplicated. I was also hoping there would be a surprising development that involved the Ire, but the Ire’s role is also predictable and very straightforward. Despite this, I was kept turning the pages ‘til the end. What this book lacks for in complex plot development, it makes up for with action, intriguing drama, and characters you can’t help but love. Fantasy of Freedom throws us right into the war before Olina even finishes recovering from her fatal injury after her close call with death in Fantasy of Fire; the entire book is rich with constant action, revelations of secrets, relationships that weather, relationships that bloom, and of course, our favorite King Jovan, whose relationship with Olina is tested. As they journey and battle, he and Olina are finally brought to the reality that they may live the rest of their lives pining for each other from the opposite ends of their world. Their uncertainty about how they could possibly rule both the people of Osolis and Glacium tests and strains their relationship. Will their unequivocal love be enough for them to choose each other? Or will their loyalties to their kingdoms force them to smother what they’ve allowed to burn between them? I don’t chase after him. I don’t know what stops me from calling out to him. And I don’t ask him why his expression darkens, why his head is bowed down. Because I know. We are the biggest impossibility of all. (3.5)

Olina stayed strong in this book, even when faced with insurmountable losses. She also had the strength of character to totally change things when she needed to, and never lost sight of what she needed to do. The storyline in this book was about Olina and Jovan trying to overthrow Olina’s mother; the Tatum of Solati. This wasn’t an easy task though, and many lives were lost along the way. I was pleased that Kendrick’s killer was finally revealed, and Olina and Jovan were quite sweet together. The ending to this was pretty good, and I was pleased with the way things worked out. 7 out of 10

    A satisfying end to a satisfying series. It captivated me from beginning to end. Yes, Olina was a little bit too special, but it honestly never bothered me. I loved her growth from beginning to end. I fell in love with the incredibly hot and hulky King Jovan (obviously) and all of the others, from Avalanche to Shard to Adnan and Sin. And yes, Kendrick and Flurry too :( I can't wait to delve into the novellas and possibly explore more of the writings by Ms. St Clare.

    I have had so much fun reading this series. I started crying eleven pages in, this was the most emotional of them all. I kind of want more Olina and Jovan, I just don't want them to end. It's earned a spot on the Top 20 series I love, that's for sure.

First of all, for all the ones that read and love the first 3 books and are afraid to be disappointed : don't be ! This book is perfect. Now for the others who didn't read the series yet: 1- what are you waiting for ? 2- let me tell you why you have to read it : What a perfect conclusion to a perfect series ! I loved every single moment and sentence of this book and series. I don’t even know how to express all my feelings in a review (even more in english) but let me tell you I read the four books in a raw and I have a massive book hangover. It’s hard to say goodbye to all of them. And It’s hard to tell you all the things I loved about The Tainted Accords Series. But let’s try : - First of all, Kelly’s writing is beautiful, flowing and intelligent. She created characters that were perfect even in their imperfection (I wanted to punch Olina one or twice in book 2 and 4). Olandon, Ash, Jovan, Olina… All of them did some questionable choices, all of them I wanted to shake sometimes, but their imperfections made them human, and I also loved them for that. Kelly didn’t manage to only made us fall to Olina and Jovan, she also made us loved (or hate sometimes) a lot of secondary characters. She created characters who evolve and question themselves a lot during their journey, and looking back to book 1, i’m amazed by what they all became. Not only Olina who was once veiled and afraid, but all of them, even the people from both worlds who had to question their beliefs. - The plot was flawless, entertaining, addictive, and we never get bored even for one page from book 1 to end of book 4. - Kelly didn’t do things easily just because it will please the readers. She made some very realistic and sad choices sometimes. Now, about book 4 : This book was very representative of the complete series, we are hooked from the first page to the end, we see in awe the evolution of the characters, we laugh, we cry, we understand, we want to throw our kindle, we swoon, and we fall in love. Yes, we fall in love. HARD ! I thought I was in love with Jovan in book 3 but … my my… after this book. Jovan, I LOVE YOU. You earn your place in my top 3 book boyfriends with Curran (Kate daniels) and Barrons (Fever series). This book was stressful, painful, beautiful and full of revelations ! I was surprised, I was sad, I had compassion… I felt. A lot. What a journey I've got since book 1 ! As said before : this was a perfect conclusion of a perfect series. It's not that often that, as a reader, we feel so much, and that we can read a complete series without getting bored or finding some flaws to the plot or characters. Not even was it not the case but this book, as well of the complete series, was the perfect balance between action, laugh, swoon, love and sadness. I can only recommend it to all. Thanks to Kelly for this amazing series and thank you for the ARC of book 4 ! *********** Mon avis en français : Pour ceux qui n’ont pas encore découvert cette série : 1- Qu’attendez-vous ? 2- Laissez moi vous expliquer (sans spoiler) pourquoi vous DEVEZ la lire : Ce tome est une parfaite conclusion à une série parfaite. J’ai aimé chaque moment et chaque phrase de ce tome et de cette série. C’est difficile d’exprimer tout mes sentiments car j’ai lu les 4 tomes d’affilés et que je referme ce dernier tome avec un grand sentiment de vide. Il m'est difficile de dire au revoir à tous ces personnages. - Tout d’abord, l’écriture de Kelly St Clare est magnifique, fluide, intelligente. Elle a su créer des personnages qui sont parfaits jusque dans leurs imperfections (j’avoue avoir voulu baffer Olina deux ou trois fois). Olandon, Ash, Jovan, Olina… Ils font tous à un moment donné des mauvais choix, j’avais parfois envie de les secouer mais leurs imperfections les rendaient également humains. Et je les ai aimés aussi pour ça. (ceci dit, ils admettent leurs erreurs !). Non seulement je suis tombée amoureuse de Jovan et Olina, mais aussi de tous les personnages secondaires. L’auteur a su créer des personnages qui évoluent au fil de la série, qui se remettent en question (beaucoup) et quand je repense au premier livre, je suis admirative de leur évolution. Et je ne parle pas seulement de la Olina voilée et terrifiée du premier tome mais de tous les personnages! - L’intrigue était prenante, addictive même, sans aucun faux pas et je ne me suis pas ennuyée une seule fois du premier au dernier tome. - L’auteur ne tombe jamais dans la facilité pour faire plaisir à ses lecteurs. Elle a su faire des choix difficiles, tristes mais réalistes. Maintenant, à propos de ce dernier tome : il est représentatif de la série. On est pris dès le début, on admire l’évolution des personnages, on rit, on pleure, on comprend, on a envie de balancer notre kindle, on couine, et on tombe amoureuse… On tombe VRAIMENT amoureuse. Moi qui pensait l’être après le tome 3…. ce n’était rien comparé à maintenant. Pour vous dire, Jovan rejoint directement mon top 3 auprès de Barrons et Curran. Ce livre était stressant, touchant, beau et pleins de révélations. J’ai été surprise, triste, pleine de compassion…. En d’autres termes, j’ai ressenti. Beaucoup. Comme je le disais au début ce livre est une parfaite conclusion à une série parfaite. Ce n’est pas souvent qu’en tant que lecteur, on ressent autant de choses et qu’on peut lire 4 tomes d’affilées sans se lasser ou trouver des défauts à l’intrigue ou aux personnages. Et là, non seulement ce n’est pas le cas, mais en plus, l’auteur arrive à trouver le juste milieu entre action, rire, couinement, amour, amitié et tristesse. Un sans faute et un must read. Merci à l'auteur de m'avoir donné la possibilité de lire ce dernier tome avant sa sortie.

    I read the first three books in 'The Tainted Accords' series this week. Each book took me a day or night to read, because I am COOL like that. This always happens to me if I love/like a series; good luck trying to pry my Kindle Fire from my hands on such occasions.

I may have gimpy hands with my rheumatoid arthritis/Lupus but when it comes to holding onto a good book, no one beats this warrior's kung fu ninja grip. FYI: I am not a spoiler, the following is my opinion on the story, the author, etc. Also the editing in the series was pretty darn good, especially considering what is typically seen with this particular e-book genre, or honestly with e-books in general. I have to say I am impressed with the imagination and creativity that Ms. St. Clare put into her books. St. Clare has a writing style which draws you into her story rapidly. If you should happen to shut your eyes for a moment, her characters simply come alive. Remember do try not to blink, or it may just be you who enters into the pit. Once St. Clare's quick witted writing style draws you in you soon find yourself unable to put down her story. Once you finish reading the first book in this series, you know you have found a new author to haunt via the Goodreads. By the second book you are hooked and make sure you have every book in the series on your ' to read' shelf with Goodreads, as you get to the third book you then lament on the fourth book having not being released yet then 'follow' St. Clare on Goodreads and the Facebook. It has always been exciting to me, when I take a chance on a new author, to find that I have indeed found another gem to hoard as one does a priceless treasure. Oh, and yes I did read each book one after the other. The benefits of insomnia and long summer nights! After finishing book three I sure did pout after I discovered I would have to actually wait until book four is released (sometime this year, in October, according to the Author's Amazon/Kindle page). Me, a woman who used (I used past tense, as if being an adult has made this stealthy talent no more. ha!!) hunt, to find, unwrap, then rewrap all her surprise Christmas and Birthday gifts...well this is a blasphemous travesty of the utmost torture for me. This unknown waiting. Wait? I cannot WAIT to discover what happens next with Lina's story. I am still pouting. Pouting....and waiting. Remember people, do not rat me out to my Mom, Mums the word. HA!!! HAPPY Reading... Rebecca

    I was 'dragged' into this series because Fantasy of Frost was my first Amazon free read. I almost dropped it, but decided to skip through it during a rather boring train ride, and, as I can rarely leave things half way, I decided to read the next books in the series.

So, it finally reached the end: pretty fast paced, easy to read, compensating this way the lack of complex plot and interesting twists. The revealing of Kendrick's killer was kind of meh (after you build expectations in 3 previous books, you really should make it impressive). I also found some things prettttyyy disturbing: - “My brother and I have the same blue-black hair, but that is where similarities end. His eyes are brown, for starters, and he towers over me by a good three heads—a typical difference between males and females on Osolis.” - really, she barely reaches up to his belly button?! - ““I am the Tatuma of Osolis. You cannot order me around like a subject,” I state. Jovan throws his hands in the air and stalks to the door, nearly ripping it from the hinges. “Guards!” he bellows. There’s an urgent clatter of men and spears in response to his booming shout. Anger boils within me as Jovan throws me a triumphant look before turning to face the ten or so watchmen who have gathered outside my chambers. He points a finger to where I perch on the bed. I glower at the watchmen until they avert their eyes. “The Tatuma does not leave this room until she can be trusted to stay where I damn well put her.”” - talking about bossy and abusive - “The king doesn’t speak a word. He just bends, picks me up, and places me over his shoulder. My wound doesn’t appreciate the treatment. Kaura trots after us, whining at the sight of her chief ear-scratcher being carried away, until Rhone whistles her back. “Put me down,” I hiss. I swear he’s carried me more lately than I’ve walked. He answers with a stinging slap to my bottom.” - again kind of abusive – I don’t think YAs should be made to think of this kind of behaviour as normal and appropriate - “He pushes me off the blanket. I land on the cold rock next to the bedroll. Before I can punch him in the kidney for it, he shifts into my spot, picks me up, and places me on top of his chest.” - couldn’t help but imagine some giant holding a little girl - and some spelling mistakes, the one screaming at me being the use of emancipated instead of emaciated :/ So, probably even 3★ are too many, but I was feeling indulgent. I wouldn't recommend this series to my friends, though..

    THAT WAS SUCH A GREAT ENDING!!! I don't know what to read now because this book just left me speechless! Lina and Jovan's epic story will forever be one of my faves now! This fourth book proved to be not only entertaining, it's also full of surprises and some things that I already suspected. Heh ;) The war was indeed difficult and I'm just glad that none of my favorite secondary characters died. I love, love how it all wrapped up. So glad I gave this series a shot! :)

    The Tainted Accords is, without a doubt, one of my favorite fantasy series of all time. The worlds that Kelly St. Clare has created are rich, well-realized, and vivid, as are the characters that inhabit them. At the center is, of course, Olina, the heroine who has grown from a frightened, veiled, abused girl to a strong, capable leader who can hold her own in a fight against anyone.

In this final installment, she must finally face down her evil mother and uncle, who have designs on conquering both worlds and destroying however many innocents who stand in their way. The final battle and showdown is epic, and well worth the wait. It's been building up to this point for four books, and the culmination is satisfying and bittersweet. Readers will not be disappointed in the slightest at how it all plays out. I cannot recommend this series more highly for lovers of YA fiction. It has everything you could want - action, romance, humor, thrills. I can't wait for the upcoming novellas!

    “Hands linked, we watch our people help each other. And it is the most beautiful thing I will ever be privileged enough to see. At our lowest moments we recover the essence of who we are.” I think I could read this series a hundred times and never get sick of it. I was taken out on an adventure while reading the series. So good!

    I am so sad this incredible series is over. I was hooked with the first book, the second one was a little disappointing but, looking back now, I realize what happened in book two was necessary to the story as a whole. The third book was amazing and the fourth and final book was everything I needed it to be and more. I loved every minute of it, I was invested and couldn't stop reading.

I was hooked with the first book, the second one was a little disappointing but, looking back now, I realize what happened in book two was necessary to the story as a whole. The third book was amazing and the fourth and final book was everything I needed it to be and more. I loved every minute of it, I was invested and couldn't stop reading. Kelly St. Clare wrote the perfect ending to this series, the long awaited war between the Bruma and Solati is finally here, we learn who was behind Kendrick's murder, who's Lina's real father and what's going to happen to Jovan and Lina's relationship once she takes her throne back from her evil mother. As I've said, I could not stop reading. I was in a trance, eyes fixated on the words in front of me, I wanted to know what was going to happen next. Fantasy of Freedom was full of twists, action and nail-biting moments. I absolutely loved how the author handled the romance, we've waited so long for them to be truly together and we do have that in this book, but not completely. Since Olina is going to war to overthrow her mother, we knew she was going to end up Tatum and stay on Osolis, and since Jovan is Glacium's king, we also knew this was going to be a problem for their relationship. But, not once, did I feel hopeless, not once did they give up on each other. Even if they knew their duty, even if they wanted what was best for their people, their feelings were always obvious and I knew the author was going to end this series with them together. My lips close over the juicy pear, brushing against his fingers. His expression has never been so focused on my actions. Or maybe I notice this more because of where we are and who is watching. I chew quickly, avoiding the gaze of everyone. Juice escapes and rolls down my chin. But when I move to wipe the juice away, Jovan grips my hand and leans forward. As I sit frozen, the king licks the juice away and then presses a deep, breathtaking kiss to my mouth. I have a deep attachment to the secondary characters, I am so excited for the novellas about Sin, Olandon, Rhone and Shard. I can't wait to see what's in store for them and get right back into this world. Reading Fantasy of Freedom was like riding a roller coaster of emotions, I laughed, it made me happy, I cried, it broke my heart more than once, I screamed, some scenes made me angry beyond measure, but most of all, I left this book feeling satisfied and with a big grin on my face. The ending was so good, I just wanted more. All in all, this series is incredible. I highly recommend it to everyone who likes an epic fantasy romance read, while it is YA, it's definitely for a more mature audience. A lot of cursing, a lot of nasty jokes and sex is talked about very freely. It didn't really feel like a YA for me, to be honest, and that's why I loved this series as much as I did. The characters are all mature, most of them are 20 t0 25 and act like adults. The romance is intense while still being slow burn but, trust me, it's so worth it in the end. You'll get to know so many amazing characters, feel so many different emotions, you'll be surprised and shocked more than once and, by the end of it, you'll only want more.

    This final book of the Tainted Accords series was very satisfying. There was drama, suspense, love, war, death, and reunions. Not in that order at all.

The author covered all her bases. There is a clear ending. Which I loved. Everybody wants to do cliff hangers these days. My favorite phrase is when Olina speaks with her cook: "Look at how we've affected the world with just a bundle of apples" The author was able to leave things open just a little bit so that she has an opportunity to come back to the series if she had the urge. The author was able to take us into the war between the two worlds. It wasnt overdone with technically explanations nor was it over the top that you couldn't follow. It was written in a way to pull you into the battle but not weigh you done with so many details that you drown in them. Olina and Jovin get hot and heavy. But are potentially pulled apart by the need to do what's best for their worlds. This makes their relationship realistic. The inner issues that come between them are things we all face in our own relationships. Characters were further developed. Even in a Finale there is room to grow. Olina is still quite young and has to grow in maturity from hated half breed into someone her people can respect. she wants to be able to rule but has to learn not to run head first into everything. of course she does that a few times in the beginning but you can see when she starts to learn from her mistakes. Again, good finale to an overall good series. The narrator did a good job once again. She read with excitement which made the battle scenes that much more interesting.

    I've been waiting for this release forever but sadly it took a week for me to have time to sit down and read. I started to begin it one day but knew I wasn't going to be able to give Olina the attention she deserved. So I held off on our reunion. Instead, I read this today and I don't even know what I'm feeling. This was so awesome I can't even write an eloquent review. It was just soooo good (note another sad adjective this time coupled with an over eager adverb).

Sad to see it end, happy it went how I hoped, and in awe with how amazing of a writer Kelly St. Claire is. I will be rereading this and look forward to reading more from her. Oh, and who the Solis is Olanden saying "hello" to?!?

    That was such an exciting, emotional, hauntingly beautiful ending. So much heartbreak and confessions. Action packed with just the right amount of romance. Everything was wrapped up in a nice little bow. Except for revealing her brothers secret love... but I think she's saving that for his novella. I loved this world and these people. I am very sad to let them go.

Probably because the reveals were things I'd already suspected. Jovan wanting to be "Tatum-man" shocked me more than learning the identity of Olina's father or that of Kedrick's killer. In the final installment, there was a lot of drama. Maybe too much? I really wish we'd gotten more of Tatum Avanna. All in all, I'm happy with how the series ended and those last few pages were just too cute. It's an easy fantasy read...a tiny bit heavy on the romance. Perfectly perfect when you just want to relax without bothering your head too much thinking about multiple plotlines and complex characters and winding plot twists.

    I feel so lucky to have the chance to read this book before its release date. I am a huge fan of the serie and I couldn't wait to read it but I was a little nervous at the same time. First because I loved the 3 books so much I didn't want the fourth to be the last but also because sometimes the end of a serie you love can be a little underwhelming. This book WAS NOT. It was everything I hoped for and more.

She stays true to herself and she never stops fighting for the people she loves, for what she thinks is right, for justice. I love her. And Jovan ... man this man is everything. I fell in love with him as much as Olina did. Every interactions they had I was holding my breath because it was always so intense. Even the most subtle scene has its intensity. The rest of the story is just as good as the first books. I've been through every emotions and it was so good. I loved the end but at the same time I was very sad to say goodbye to all those characters I grew to care about. What a beautiful ride... Thank you Kelly St Clare for writing one of my now favorite series.

    I am sitting here kicking myself for not having read this whole series sooner. Seriously it is awesome and has now become one of my favourite series, ever! I'm so sad that it's over, but also glad that we got to see Olina's story come to a fitting conclusion. I have laughed and cried many times through this series and particularly in this last book. It was such a fitting end and the twists on the emotions that Kelly has managed to pull is part of what made this book so great.

Jovan has now become one of my favourite book boyfriends, and Bruma has become one of my favourite literary places that if I really could press that magic button then I would be there. What an awesome end to an enjoyable and captivating series. I am now going to go back and re read this series all over again as that is what I do when I've fallen in love with the world an author has created.

    Why do all the good series have to end?! Really? Why?!?! *sigh* This fourth book in The Tainted Accords series wraps up Olina's journey, which spans three worlds, and has more ups and downs than a rollercoaster. Olina and Jovan, with the backing of Jovan's army, the barracks fighters and Olandon are set to wage war on Tatum Avanna- Olina's psychotic mother.

It's time to go to war and take her spot as rightful ruler of Osolis. And in doing so, create peace among all three worlds and their people. No problem right? As I've come to expect with this series, nothing is ever that easy or straightforward for Olina and the gang. Just as they make ground in one area, there's something or someone there to throw a spanner in the works. And it's so. Damn. Addictive. It was always pretty obvious how this series had to end, but there were so many times when it really didn't look like it would! That's what kept me turning pages. And its the best thing about this authors writing. Even when you think you know where she's going, there's always some little tidbit thrown in to put a doubt in your mind. All the ongoing storylines are nicely wrapped up- Kedrick' assasin, Olina's father, Jovan and Olina's relationship. Some were more to my liking than others but I could respect the way the author went with each of them. And there's some set up for the series of spin off novella's the author is writing, which makes me super happy. At least I don't have to say a complete goodbye to this series, but gosh I'm heartbroken to be losing Olina and Jovan! A good end to what is overall, an amazing series. Ms St Clare is an author to watch in the future, that is for sure.

There were so many things that happened in these 4 books. The end of the first book threw me for such a loop that I really didn't know where the author was going with the series and then it all just MADE SENSE. This is the last book of the series (not counting spinoffs and novelas) and I am honestly sad. What do I know now that Jovan and Olina's tale is over? Because that is what this book was about, Jovan and Olina, at least for me. Sure there was Frost's story, and even Willow's blurb, but this was Olina and Jovan. Man did I love them. And the best part was that all 4 books showed them falling for each other. I got real nervous when it was 80% and shit wasn't ending the way I wanted though, but St. Clare had a lot of ends to tie up. Which, (view spoiler)[let me tell you, I didn't see Roscoe being the dad. WHAT. I really thought it was going to be Avox or whatever his name was (I am terrible with names and this book will make you think to keep everyone straight in your head) So when that happened I was actually grocery shopping, listening to the book and I had to stop and get my phone out to make sure I heard that right. Roscoe! Did anyone else see this? Why didnt he tell her, why didn't Jovan say anything. How did it happen? Can we get a novela on the story of Avanna and Roscoe? Like really. Was this a one time deal or did they have an affair? Some might be upset that the death of Avanna was so anticlimactic, but I loved it. So sad, so sudden and no fanfare, but I think that was a good way to end her life. Not long and drawn out like Cassius, just saying her piece and then bam, gone. But St. Clare wouldnt have been able to pull that off without Cassius being in the picture. Then the story would have been too anticlimactic and almost feel like a waste. Can we talk about Jovan for a second. Every book had me loving him more. The way he always banged Olina's door open, to the baths, the throwing of the pears, to the way he handled his men dying in this book. Just swoon. He was great. I do want to know the height difference between the two, and where is the awkwardness of that. Cause it can't be easy!!! (hide spoiler)] I loved this book, and St. Clare is now an author I will follow!

    This book in one sentence: In the final book of this series, Olina returns to Osolis with an army, trying to end the war. My rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Steaminess: 🌶🌶 Would I recommend: Yes, this is a great series, totally worth reading. One of the most impressive aspects is that while each book is interesting and rich, the series remains consistent. I find a lot of fantasy series start off one place and then by the end of the series you barely recognize the characters or the universe.

The fourth book is more like the conclusion of all the elements that have been set up since book one. I found a lot of the plot twists and reveals in this book to be pretty predictable, but there were still enough unexpected elements to make reading worthwhile. Tropes: Surprise-dads, princesses, Content warnings: Child abuse, torture, war.

    “What do you think happens in war, Lina?” “One side wins, and the other loses.” “No.” He shakes his head. There’s so much sorrow in the movement I forget to breathe. “Both sides lose. But one side loses a little less.” Bitter sweet as this series comes to an end. What a wonderful journey these books were. Jovan and Lina are officially one of my all time favorite book couples. They frustrated me at times, but they were always there for each other when it counted. Their devotion, love and respect fo “What do you think happens in war, Lina?” “One side wins, and the other loses.” “No.” He shakes his head.

What a wonderful journey these books were. Jovan and Lina are officially one of my all time favorite book couples. They frustrated me at times, but they were always there for each other when it counted. Their devotion, love and respect for one another won me over- yet again. I guessed a few of the secrets that were revealed about Lina's past, but there were still enough surprises that I wouldn't say it was predictable. There were a few things that I wish panned out a little differently, but no matter- I still loved the ending and all the burning questions I had were answered. Lina has fought to become the person she is. She doesn't apologize for who she is anymore or for what she wants. "I’m wearing robes. They know who I am. They’ve guessed I’m the Tatuma. I don’t know if they see my eyes, but they see I am not maimed, or grotesque, and they see I can fight. I don’t give a single shit what they see." Damn. You go girl. I've enjoyed watching Lina and the other characters develop. I've grown attached to all of these characters. And I could read 10 more books about Jovan and Lina. <3

    This book wrapped up the whole story well - no loose endings and a generally satisfying ending. I did find the actual last scene a bit too much but otherwise I was happy with it. Jovan and Olina were both as engaging as ever and although Olina is a little too amazing and too much the critical character, I can forgive that because I like the whole world so much. I also liked a number of the secondary characters and will probably invest in the additional stories as well. Good solid series.

Some poor writing at times but a kick ass female lead with some great fight scenes. Intriguing additional characters. Some events were a bit hard to believe but the emotional growth in Olina was well represented. Overall I really enjoyed it!
