POV: 3rd-person, two perspectives
Love-geometry: is absent
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 ...more
The villain, the Bane, afraid of what awaits him in the after life because of all the atrocities he’d committed, will stop at nothing to gain immortality. The price? Human sacrifices with blood magic. He usually seeks out powerful mages for this sacrifices to buy him extra decades. Iolanthe, the main character, fits his perfect profile, so he went after her relentlessly, ultimately to his demise.
To defeat the Bane, Iolanthe and Titus had to ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
“Iolanthe raised the wand that had once belonged to Titus the Great and summoned lightning, a white-hot flash that lit up the sky.
The war against Atlantis had begun at last.”

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 ...more
I still love Iolanthe and Titus so much and I'm so happy this book ended the way it did, but everything else... just...
I also missed a bunch of things that made the first two books special, Iolanthe pretending to be a boy at an all boys boarding school, the fact t ...more
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.
I was incredibly nervous and wary when I went into The Immortal Heights ...more
I'm gonna miss Titus and Iola, and this world, so so much.

THIS COMES OUT THIS MONTH AND I TOTALLY FORGOT.
I CANNOT WAIT.
Titus, I'm coming for you, darling.
The cover. *sighs*
Now, I just need the book.
Dear, book #3.
I need you.
I need you so much it hurts.
I NEED YOU!
Like, now. ...more

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
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 ...more
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 ...more
I will not talk spoilers in my review. Well, I shall try my best not to talk spoilers. I will share some of the things I loved about this book, but nothing that spoils the plot :) But y ...more
Then the second half happened. And suddenly it felt epic. It felt profound, and my heart was racing.
"Titus did not scream. He did not smash the furniture. He did not crumple to the floor, sobb ...more
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. There are minor spoilers for the series (if you’ve read the blurb, you can read the review)
Iolanthe and Titus are still fighting against the Bane. He wants Iolanthe or he will destroy the entire realm. This mea ...more
