I give this 4.5/5 queen's crowns.

This is the finale of the Stella and Sol series. It's incredible to finish a series within a year or within six months after the first book came out. Just like this series. I can still remember when I first got the first book-God of the Sun. It felt like it was just yesterday and now the series ends. It's a mixture of emotions. It's sad to say goodbye to the characters I have grown to love and root for and to their story. At the same time, it is a relief to final

A satisfying ending to a great series! Zwaantie never wanted to be Queen, but when you are royalty, you do what you have to do. Now, she finds herself becoming Queen not just in one kingdom, but over the entire world!

Through this series, Zwaantie has been an annoying "heroine", often whiny & very immature. This book sees her finally become the leader she is meant to be.

Kimberly Loth is a great writer, building worlds & characters like a great architect. Everything she writes is awesome &

This final book in the Sella and Sol series is an exciting finish to a great story. We have seen Zawantee go from a whiny teenager, to a Queen responsible for the safety of two kingdoms. She puts her aching heart to one side and does what is best for the kingdoms and their people. This story leads you on a journey full of twists, betrayal, sorrow, action, forgiveness and love. It wraps up all the story threads set down in the previous books and leaves you will a satisfying ending.

Kimberly Loth has outdone herself again! She transported us into the world of Stella and Sol and made us love her characters even more! Throughout this book so many questions were answered for us. New friendships and loves were formed! You get to see if the worlds of Stella and Sol will get to be joined! By the finish of the book I finally see Zwaantie as a grown up and a queen, she has sacrificed so much just for her country.

Such an epic ending to an amazing story. I can't believe all the twists and turns this series has taken and I'm happy and sad at the same time. I'm so happy to have gotten to read this series, but sad it ended (book nerd problems lol). There is so much about this book that I loved that I honestly don't know where to begin or what to say or anything except that I loved it. It was so awesome that I really read it all in on sitting (at the bar even). Everyone needs to read this series because the e ...more

As always, Kimberly Loth does not disappoint. This final installment of the wonderful world of Stella and Sol was the closure all fans of the books deserve. Yes, Ari was killed in the last book and that was Loth being an adventurous author, but she did give Leo the happy ending he deserved. Though the reconciling between Zwaantie and Leo was a bit rushed, I guess in the interest of keeping the reader focused on defeating all evil The Voice, we did not get to savor all the nuances of Zwaantie as ...more

GREAT finish of Stella and Sol series!
In this book, we encounter - mourning, love, fighting voice, passion.
Here main characters become Queen and King, but will it be that easy for Leo and Zwantee? Especially with Ari's death in book 3.
I LOVED this characters and series. I will read more of Kimberly Loth for sure!

An explosion of emotion and a whirlwind of action! I couldn't put this book down I needed to know what happened next.
I loved this series from the start with so many twists and turns it was an unforgettable exciting fast paced fantasy.

I kept hoping a certain person would magically come back to life since their character turned out to be one of my favs but I did enjoy the way the story turned out in the end and how everything turned out with the Voice and Stella and Sol.

I must admit, the first few chapters were a bit hard to get into but, once you got through there, the book made more sense and flowed really well.

It didn't take much to get sucked into the story and being able to associate with the characters.

Definitely worth grabbing hold of.

Well done Kimberly Loth.

Queen of the Dawn by Kimberly Loth is book four in her Stella and Sol series and is the final book that brings to an end to our time in Stella and Sol. This book picks right up where things left off in book three. Ari is dead, murdered by Raaf, in his attempt to kill his sister to thwart a prophecy that he himself will die. Zwaantie wishes to mourn the loss of the man she loved and the life she will never have with him but she cannot. The changes have already begun in the kingdoms and she must r ...more

I am sorry to see this series end but Kimberly Loth has definitely done it justice. This book picks up exactly where the reader left off in book three with a shocking twist. Not having much time to grieve, Zwaantie has to step up and assume her new role becoming queen in Stella and ultimately in Sol as well. In order to ascend to the throne, she has to marry Leo. There are so many emotions at play here. Can Leo put aside his feelings of betrayal? Can Zwaantie move past her feelings to l

I read this book not realising it was part of a series. Even so it didn't spoil it for me. This book was so well defined. At first I thought i was reading an historical novel, until the character had a shower ! The plots was described that well, that it was easy to envisage the places the story was set in, but not flooded with to much information to deter from the story. This book was full of sorrow, mistrust, betrayal, fear, celebration,trust, love and friendship, I could go on. It captured you ...more

So this book picks up immediately after the first one ends and sufficiently addresses all of the plot points in the series. Once again, it is the world building elements that captured my attention.

I thought the prophecy fulfillment was well done. I have to say, for all they tried to make Leo a little less then a saint by having him not want to trust Zwaantie with his heart after she picked two guys over him, the poor guy really was put through the ringer and stayed the course.

When reading a conclusion to a series that has kept you on the edge of your seat book after book, you really want the conclusion to be all encompassing and feel complete. This author delivered in spades! Brilliance flows from these pages. The life f the main character Zwantee has gone through some really major growing pains throughout these books and finding a path to any HEA seemed really futile. With the loss of a major character in a previous book, it was anyone's guess where this storyline w ...more

This was a stunning conclusion to this fantastic series. The book opens to find Stella still reeling from the events in book 3. Zwaantie and Leo are in shock from what has happened to Ari. Will Leo be able to get over the betrayal of the two to do what is right and will Zwaantie be able to do what is right for both the kingdoms of Stella and Sol?I loved how the author brought everything full circle with this book and gave a fitting conclusion to the characters.

I was so upset with the way book 3 ended. I thought Zwaantie was finally going to get her happily ever after, after living her whole life unhappy, and not wanting to be queen of the two kingdoms. But Kimberly Loth did a great job in finally bringing Zwaantie and Leo together. In the first three books Leo claims to love her, but he basically ignores her all the time. In this book they both finally come to appreciate each other, and truly love each other, all the while they are trying to save the ...more

I voluntarily and honestly reviewed this advance reader copy and was not compensated in any way.

A gripping series finale. This story is the final story in a series in the best sense. It ties up all the loose ends from the other books and answers all the questions. You definitely have to have read the first 3 books in the series, before heading into this one or you will be completely lost. I think it is well worth the read. The two main characters, Zwaantie and Leo, went from carefree adventurous

What an epic conclusion to this series. I am not sure how to express my love for this novel. The characters are so intriguing and continue to grow. It was completely heart-wrenching to read.

Zwaantie finally comes into her own and becomes queen of the world. But in order to keep her kingdom, she will face trial upon trial, and deal with the ones she loves risking their lives for her. Will it all be worth it in the end? Read the complete series to find out.

Seriously. Read them!

Wow Stella and Sol finally reunited. I've gone through so many emotions with this series as Zwaantie made her journey to Stella to marry Leo. First Love, love lost, betrayal, lies and deception throughout this series as Zwaantie basically had a coming of age to her role as Queen. I felt heart broken when Ari died to save her life.

This was just a great story over all and I am so glad that I found this author as she write with such depths of emotion. It just moves me.

Zwantee has been on quite a dangerous journey trying to stay alive while someone has been so determined to kill her and gain control over her kingdom. She has lost her love and now has to make some tough choices to protect others.

This final book in the series is a great conclusion to the story. You get the answers you wanted and a resolution that fits the story and the characters. I highly recommend you read the series and see her journey. She starts out very young and naive and grows into someo

Wow – the action and revelations in the previous books did not hold a candle to this series finale. I realized many times that I was holding my breath in suspense, just **waiting** for something terrible to happen – sometimes I was right, and sometimes I wasn’t. I laughed and cried, cheered with joy, shouted in anger, and ran through the whole range of emotions with this book. It was a rollercoaster. I highly recommend this entire series – what a ride!

Overall this is a satisfying ending to the series. I still found the heroine of the book to be lackluster, and I wasn't really buying Leo's side of the story (keep in mind I skipped book #1), but I think the author tied things up nicely.

As with the previous books, I found things a little too obvious - ahem the villain ahem - and found it infuriating how willfully ignorant Zwaantie was. Overlooking that, I think the author told a smooth story with a good pace.

This is the final book in the Stella and Sol series and has a excellent ending. It picks up right where book 3 ends. We have watched Zwaantie grow from a spoiled brat princess to a mature queen through many life hurdles and sacrifices. I actually cried during certain parts of this book as I became emotionally close to several of the characters! Wish it could go on but alas this was the end!

Amazing conclusion to an awesome series

Zwaantie has to pick up the pieces after the tragic circumstances concluding the previous book. She doesn't have the luxury of grieving with her responsibilities and being hunted by the Voice. More heartache and pain must come before dawn breaks. The end is satisfying and happy.

Wow! This was such a great set of books! Great story, great caracters. Great ending. I downloaded a sample and had to buy the books. Could not put it down. I have to say this is a top pick for me. Very tastefully done. I tend to shy away from romance stories because they can be to explicit. Glad I took a chance on this one. 😄

A battle between good and evil in surroundings controlled by magic.

I haven't read the previous books, but this one can be read as a standalone.

It's filled with action, betrayal, mind control, but also there is reconciliation and trying to end a difficult time including slavery.

I received a free copy and this is my honest review.

Lots of heartbreak, fear and hard decisions to make for Zwaantie. Lives have been lost on both sides of the wall, and the Voice is causing chaos. Finally, the king and queen can start building a future for a united country. Sorry to see the end of the series, but there is definitely scope for a Book 5!

Kimberly Loth can’t decide where she wants to settle down. She’s lived in Michigan, Illinois, Missouri, Utah, California, Oregon, and South Carolina. She finally decided to make the leap and leave the U.S. behind for a few years. Currently, she lives in Cairo, Egypt with her husband and two kids.

She is a high school math teacher by day (please don’t hold that against her) and YA author by night.
