The Fiercest Joy
Update 9/13/16: A title?! A cover!! Yess!!! C'mon synopsis and date! The GIF below still stands!
Yay! There's gonna be a third one!!
So, sometime ago I wrote to Shana Abe on Facebook and considering that she hadn't really active online in the recent past, I wasn't very optimistic about getting a reply. But the most awesome thing happened, she did reply and said categorically that there will be a third book in the Sweetest Dark series. So that was a huge relief but there still might be some waiting before we get it.. So happy she replies :D
When will there be updates? There isn't even a definitive release date yet, only ...more
Loved it!!! The conclusion to this amazing series was fantastic. I loved everything about it. It had so much going on that it was impossible to get bored. It made me laugh, cry, and cry some more. It answered all of questions I had formed from the first two books, and ended on a very satisfying note. While I think this ended perfectly, I will still be sad to see it end. The entire truly was hidden gem and I don't understand why more people haven't read this series.
I have waited four fucking YEARS for this conclusion!!! FOUR YEARS!
In that time I read literally ever Drakon book I could get my hands on - even the ones that weren't even all that great or the kind of book I'm into!
Because I HAD TO KNOW WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED to Lora and Mandy. I HAD TO KNOW!
Welp, now I fuckin' know.
I also know what happened to a lot of Drakons from the other books, and that's cool too.
I literally can't even review this shit because I am so ...more
I think this series really peaked in book two. The first book in this series was focused on Lora discovering her powers and um... Jesse, who was boring as toast. I always have a soft ...more
After such a long wait for the release of THE FIERCEST JOY, I took my time and reread through the previous two books before diving in to read straight through to the early morning hours. Its a strong personal belief that coffee was founded for just such causes as a good book immersion morning-after medication. Shana Abe has this beautiful ability to form a connection with her readers to the beauty, truth, and whit of her characters. The true ...more
There are only two bad things I have to say about this book. 1 it took too long for it to come out. I'd just about forgot the story. 2 There are like three points I thought the book was over. Although, I liked them all. If you have read the others the you definitely need to read this book. If you've not read this series then please do yourself the right thing and start at the beginning. And of you haven't read any of the Dragon books, it wouldn't hurt to start at the very ...more
Honestly I wasn't expecting this last book to be so sad?? I cried ALOT.
I'm glad we got a HEA but like I still felt sad haha. If you read it you'll know what I mean.
Lastly, Armand is perfect. And I think The Deepest Night will always be my fave in the series.
Now, firstly I was thrilled with the ending had Armand and Lora together. It fit with the way the series progressed. I HATE when book series screw up the main love story. Armand has loved Lora throughout all three books.
I still want to know more about the stars, though. Still, a great series if you're into young adult, ...more
Finally got to read the last one of this series. In love with the book from the first page to the end. I couldn't possibly explain with words the marvelous time i had reading about Lora, jesse, Armand and Audrey. Love, fantasy and drakons. Love it!
