Wendy Everly is facing an impossible choice. The only way to save the Trylle from their deadliest enemy is by sacrificing herself. If she doesn’t surrender to the Vittra, her people will be thrust into a brutal war against an unbeatable foe. But how can Wendy leave all her friends behind… even if it’s the only way to save them?
The stakes have never been higher, because her kingdom isn’t the only thing she stands to lose. After falling for both Finn and Loki, she’s about to make the ultimate choice… who to love forever. One guy has finally proven to be the love of her life—and now all their lives might be coming to an end.
Everything has been leading to this moment. The future of her entire world rests in her hands—if she’s ready to fight for it.
GREAT ending to a fabulous trilogy. I was beyond happy about the whole thing. Seriously. I do have some nicks but nothing super serious.
I loved seeing the development with Wendy and her mother. I loved the regret, development, love that was revealed and shared between the two.
I absolutely love the love triangle which is VERY odd for me to say. I loved that the author was able to make me rage war with myself in who I liked better. But in the end I am very happy with how that went down.
It was cool to watch Wendy ‘ascend’ (pun intended) to the throne. The meetings, the trial and error. I loved how everything wasn’t easy. I can appreciate some realness in that.
One character I would like to know more about is Tove. What an awesome, sweet character. I loved him and I hope that maybe the author will do a novella or something with his character.
One thing I was SLIGHTLY disappointed with was the final climax fight scene. There was SO MUCH built up and then……not so much action. I was okay really with but it just lacked….a little something more I guess.
Overall I loved this book and the trilogy. I finished all 3 books in three days. It was so fun and I loved the idea of it. Looking forward to reading more from this author.
