Hi Vanessa.
The series concluded with the third book (Immortal Heights), but as to whether the author will decide to extend the series only she would be able to say.

If there were it was the more mild ones like damn or hell. As for sexual intimacy... there is one prominent sexual scene. However, it really isn't descriptive at all, it's implied that they slept together but besides some kissing that's about it. Definitely PG-13(less)

Dear Lord this book was brilliant!! I'm not sure I breathed through the entire thing. I also may have had several heart attacks.

Completely. Awesome.

I can honestly say that this is one of my favorite series out there. If you haven’t started it yet, what are you waiting for? I’m struggling with my review for just this reason… I can’t really put into words how satisfying this series was for me and the story itself was just everything I look for when reading.

The final installment of the Elemental Trilogy was everything I had hoped it would be and more. An epic story of love, friendship and adventure, The Immortal Heights wraps up this fantasy

I'm a bit...disappointed maybe. Just a tiny, almost irrelevant, bit. I didn't have problems with the book until the ending, which did not satisfy me like I had hoped. I liked it, it was a good ending, but it wasn't perfect in my opinion.

Plot-wise I think The immortal heights is the strongest volume of the trilogy. The plot is complex and not predictable at all, which is always nice, and it showed that the author had planned every detail. All my questions were answered and as I said, I'm really

My thoughts on The Elemental Trilogy can be summed up in three letters: OTP.

I love this series for its imaginative worldbuilding and exciting magic. I love it for its historical setting and how its words so effortlessly sweep me away. I love it for its emotional intensity and loveable supporting cast. But mostly, and unsurprisingly, I love it for the romance between Titus and Iolanthe. This is a series with a truly epic love story, full of steady devotion, witty banter, deep friendship and trus

I've given this an A- at AAR, so that's 4.5 stars, rounded up.

The Immortal Heights is the final book in Sherry Thomas’ YA fantasy Elemental Trilogy , and brings to a very satisfying conclusion the story of Prince Titus of the House of Elberon and Iolanthe Seabourne begun in The Burning Sky and continued in The Perilous Sea. I don’t normally read Young Adult fiction, but I’m a huge fan of the author’s, so her name on the cover was enough to get me reading. And once I started, I was completely ho

This was a satisfactory ending to the trilogy... not amazing, but good enough I guess. Book 2 was just so damn good with the alternating timelines and how they came together, that this book was more on the level of the first one. The perspective jumped around a lot without any clear destinction as to who we were following... I mean it often took a while to figure out if it was Fairfax or the Prince we were following because it would jump in the middle of a chapter, sometimes several times. Also, ...more

Just as solid a finale as I expected it to be! The time for preparing and training is done for the characters, and this whole book is about them heading towards that final battle against the Bane - to free their world and finally face a terrifying foretold fate. The book gave me serious anxiety worrying over the characters. At times it got depressing and I just wanted to get past all the pain and hopelessness and get to the wins! Not that the characters were whining about was happening - you can ...more

It's usually the second book in series that I have issues with. Which, if you ask me, is logical. You usually have an idea and a way to start it and mostly how to end it, but the middle is tricky. Well I have no idea how but with this series is actually the opposite.

What started like a really interesting story in The Burning Sky, exploded in The Perilous Sea, where I fell in love with everything. It's just the story progressed in a way I didn't expect it too

Heartbroken that I can't give this book a higher rating being that I LOVED the previous two, but this one was such a tough read for me, it dragged and dragged and dragged, I honestly had to force myself to finish it and it pains me.

I still love Iolanthe and Titus so much and I'm so happy this book ended the way it did, but everything else... just...

The first book in The Elemental Trilogy, The Burning Sky, was one of the first books to make me fall in love with fantasy. With this final concluding novel, this series remains one of my top fantasy series of ALL TIME. If you're a fantasy fan and haven't picked this series up yet, do yourself a favor and change that ASAP, especially if you love your books action-packed, deeply romantic and with characters so easy to root for.

Not all will be lost.

Sherry Thomas presented to us another masterpiece, full of adventures, dangers, love, friendship - all we need for an epic book conclusion. I am a little bit sad as always when something great ends, as this trilogy came to an end and I don't want to say good buy to it, not yet. The Immortal Heights was the best book of the trilogy; it was more passionate and more endearing as main characters were nearing their prophesied deaths and feelings esc

I looooove Titus and Fairfax. This is exactly what I look for in a series for romance. No love triangles! Lots of swoon! And a couple who builds and works together without unnecessary drama!

These two aren't perfect, and they have some major disagreements, but I love that they're always fighting for each other despite that. Fairfax's anger comes out after Titus does something she doesn't agree with, and I was cheering her on for sure. I adore that they're not afraid to confront each other's stup

Oh my god, seriously, these covers. They kill me they're so epic. I think this last cover is actually the best of the three, maybe because DRAGONS. More specifically LIGHTNING DRAGONS.

Anyway, going on to reviewing the actual book- unfortunately, I feel like this series lost its momentum a little, with The Immortal Heights ending up being a somewhat satisfying conclusion that wasn't really up to the level of the previous books.

The writing was so medieval that it was kind of hard to read sometimes

The Immortal Heights is the finale of this series and it's by far my favorite one in the trilogy. As we know, there was a real war against the Atlantis in the end of book 2, The Perilous Sea, this book started right where it left. That is, Iolanthe and Titus teamed up with their classmate, aka Kashkari, an Indian boy whom I thought was a nonmage, but obviously he was not. There were lots of fighting scenes and they were truly amazing, I must admit. Particularly when they confronted the Bane, the ...more

В общем, я знаю, что Томас славится своими ИЛР, но я в них не особо разбираюсь и даже не помню, читала ли что-то из ее взрослых романов.
Но эта трилогия... Пусть пишет YA-фэнтези. Потому что получается у нее явно лучше, чем у 99% нынешних авторов, избравших сей жанр. Возможно, как раз потому, что рука набита на тех самых ИЛР))

All in all, a satisfactory finale to a solid, entertaining series. I may have waited too long to read The Immortal Heights, as one of my major problems during this read was my lack of investment. I didn't care as much for these characters as I used to. Save for Titus perhaps. Because he is my precious cinnamon roll.

Oh man, how do I even describe this book? It's big. Or it felt big, because it dragged for the first half. It took me ages to read it because the mind kept snagging at something and I'd lose interest and put it down. It's like it's been crammed too much with everything. I was starting to feel disappointed.


Then the second half happened. And suddenly it felt epic. It felt profound, and my heart was racing.

The burning sky is still my favorite installment, but I’m satisfied with the ending and how everything ties together. The beginning was a little difficult, because I read The Perilous sea a while ago, but soon I was wrapped into the story.

Titus and Iolanthe have the seemingly impossible task of stopping the tyrant Bane. To do this they must get into his fortress, in the heart of Atlantis, to his crypt and destroy his original body. But standing in their way is the fact that they are in the middle of a battle in the Sahara and there are prophecies which have them doubting that they are able to complete their task. Will Iolanthe, Titus and their allies be able to defeat the Bane and overcome the obstacles in their way?
