With Rhin captured by Sift, and Lilain and Lurker left behind in Washingtown, Tonmerion Hark returns to London, where the fate of the empire lies with the devilish Lord Dizali.

In his quest for revenge, the young Hark recruits an unl

Bloodfeud is an okayish conclusion to a series that started out strong with Bloodrush. Basically, It is just like Bloodmoon with its pros and cons except that all the threads come together with not so earth shattering climax.

I felt that the protagonist had shifted from Merion to Calista. She turns out to be far more interesting that the bland Merion. While both Merion & Calista have satisfying character arcs, Calista's was definitely more enjoyable. Maybe Ben Galley should have focused on her wh

Loved it!! See my full review here:

Bloodfeud was a spectacular finish to a simply amazing series and there is not one thing I would have changed. It was faster paced, more action-packed and more tension-filled since the stakes were raised and there was a sense of imminence about it. All the loose ends were tied up, and I like the open-ended epilogue which I'm hoping means there will be some novellas.

Truly tremendous. Ben Ben Galley has done it again. I Love EVERYTHING about this series.

It had me gripped from start to finish, just like the first two... brilliant characters, superb plot and a magic system that has me wanting more of this whole thing... my only hope is that Ben does it :-)

The 'death' right at the end was really sad as the character was my favourite, but that only added to how bad-ass the book is

What a fantastic journey, from a spoilt brat to an honorable man/boy. This was such a well written story, the characters had so much personality. The final page said Tonmerion would return, and I for on e am excited for another story.

This book series finished with its strongest volume. One aspect of the ending really bugged me—it was one that was relatively easy to see coming, and would've been nice to see subverted, and that by itself was enough to knock my rating down a star. (Still not quite a spoiler, but tagging just to be safe: (view spoiler) ...more

A brilliant conclusion to an amazing trilogy. All the characters were totally different personalities but fit so well within the plot which has been well thought out and well written throughout. I was totally rapt in the story. How does he do it? I thought that the ‘Emeneskar’ series was good but this is even better. He writes at a fast pace and doesn’t dally on anything and just keeps you turning the pages.
Where he got the idea of ‘Bloodrushing’ from I’ll never know but what a strange form of m

What a fabulous, unique series! The style of magic reminds me of Sanderson's Mistborn, but Ben Galley has created a totally new and unique world. Incredible world building and very lifelike characters. Loved it! ...more

I wait for the last page to be turned to review. This trilogy brought on myriad emotions. No spoiler alert. I ended it with a bittersweet grin. My greatest thanks to the author for such a fantastic read

What a bang the ending was! Great read, especially with Rhin. Gonna miss that character. Oh, and Lurker! Eish.

Third part, the best part! Faster paced, more rushing, more enjoyment for me! Well done, Ben!

So here we are at the end of what has been an exciting road to travel down, and it is somewhat bittersweet that I write this because the series is now over (with the exception of some short stories to look forward to next year).

Book three brings us full circle for the ultimate showdown back in London after the events during the Bloodmoon. Whilst I don't want to cover old ground and sound like a broken record, I'm afraid I am and I will, especially if you are just coming to this review without kn

Ben Galley's Scarlet Star trilogy is one of the most original ones I've read in the past few years. The historical worldbuilding literally transports you back in time with a dash of fantasy that makes it all the more exciting. I was a bit worried with this third book as it left the setting of the two previous ones – the American Frontier and the midlands – for an "Old Continent" city, London.
However, the darker atmosphere (well reflected on the cover, and somewhat reminiscent of Tim Burton's 'Sw
