I received this as an advanced readers copy from the author.

5 stars

Ever since I read the first book in this series I was hooked. This was the final book in this part of the series and it was a very fitting finale. Thank the stars there will be other books set in this world though .

Often i struggle when its been a while since i have read the previous book in a series . Many times i have had to actually re read that previous book before embarking on the latest one.
No need for that here. I knew st

I loved this series, and whole this is an excellent finish to it, I am a little torn by it being over at last. This is a great epic fantasy series, and this last book in it is wonderful. I suppose you could read this and get the gist of previous books without reading them, but why would you?
Loved it.

An excellent ending to an epic series. Great world building, compelling characters, and edge of your seat action. The author ties up the story wonderfully and still leaves your longing for more. Looking forward to whatever she comes up with next.

I couldn't wait to get my hands on the final book in Christina Ochs' Desolate Empire series, and it completely lived up to my expectations.

I couldn't believe that I finally finished this series. I mean, these are monolithic books and this book is #6. Och's main strength is building up tension in each novel on different levels: the overall tension is "When is the evil Teodora gonna die?" Because she would rather die before surrendering, let's just say that. But, in each book, there was a few smaller conflicts that had you guessing the whole time. For me, I was wondering this whole time if a) Elektra was going to survive long enough ...more

I mostly enjoyed Blood of the Empire. I'm glad it's the last in the series, as things had begun to grow somewhat repetitive. I wasn't entirely satisfied with the final battle, which I found to be somewhat anticlimactic (I would have enjoyed some more action there), but overall, I did still enjoy the book. It wasn't my favorite in the series, but it did a fairly good job of resolving everything and tying up all the loose ends.
