What a great ending to this series. Great characters and world building. The series held me captive throughout and had me anticipating the next book release.

I absolutely love this author's writing and can't wait to read more books by her.

This series is amazing! I'm so glad I stumbled across this author, because all of her books are so captivating that I could barely hold myself back from reading them all in one sitting. I won't get too into the details (since Elisabeth Wheatley sums it up perfectly in her review of this book), but here are some of the highlights.

The outstanding character development was one of my favorite parts of this series. I absolutely loved watching the characters change and grow as individuals over time. N

Fantastic ending

Can't believe I'm all done with the 8 books in this universe. Overall a good ending, of course I would have loved it to be drawn out even more nut all good things must end!

I love this series and I love this author. There are only two or three living authors that can get me to hit “download” just by virtue of their name and Jennifer is one of them. This is a wonderful middle grade/lower YA series. I’d feel comfortable reading it out loud to my family, but also enjoy the reading myself. Highly recommended!

The plot:

Quick, to the point, and set to a relentless pace, this story doesn’t give you any time to get bored. Interspersed with sweet moments, sarcasm, and banter

Well.... it’s finally happened.

I’ve finished this series

I’m definitely going to miss the characters and miss looking forward to reading about them.

This book of the series was good and did tie many ends together however I do want another one or a spinoff...

This wasn't my favorite of the series, but I thought it was a great ending. The first 50% I had a tough time staying focused, but then Kerdan showed up and I flew through the second half of the book.

Kerdan and Allyssa together were absolute perfection. They have the kind of love that I love to read about. It wasn't just lust or any kind of instalove; instead their relationship is built on friendship, respect and understanding of one another. And that is something I can 100% get behind.
*sighs happily and closes eyes*
Perfect. Just perfect. I loved every second of this book. Knowing that Allyssa's perspective would come back made me eager to keep reading! It started out with Savenek's new life in the castle and hearing about Allyssa and the war from inside. Once Allyssa came back, all would seem well, but no! There's more to it! Intrigue, betrayal, and assassination attempts are just the few elements of this conclusion to an amazing series.

This was a great ending to this series. I loved that it has both siblings points of view. I loved that they acted like siblings. The way they were so competitive and would argue it was like they've been together forever. I could only imagine if their poor parents had to deal with both of them growing up. The fights, trouble and mischief they would cause.
There was kinda a major typo for when the kingdoms did a vote it had said "Rema, Viscor, and the king from Drenton raised their hands." Drenton

Started out feeling like the first three books, then sort of petered out. The ending felt anticlimactic and a little too predictable. I hated how she is suddenly okay with murder and assassination. Shouldn't she be above that? I get that she was tortured, but she just stooped to their level, which was annoying.
And yes, her brother is supposedly an assassin, but it still irritated me that he had no qualms about shoving poison down the guys throat. Not even a smidgen of regret or discourse as to

The books are never long enough for me 😭 they are action packed and never drawn out but I always want more! I love Jennifer's books, this one is no exception. I love Allysa and Kerdan. I love the relationship between Savenek and Allysa and how it forms so quickly. I'm sad to see their story end but it was a good series. I always seem to actually laugh out loud when I read Jennifer's books. Especially at Kerdans way of being straight forward. And the many awkward moments are pretty funny too. A g ...more

Maybe it was my mood, maybe it was that I read it from like 3-5 AM ...
but I was disappointed. I didn't like all the what I felt to be recap.
I can't remember now when she appeared but Allyssa doesn't appear until pretty far in - I want to say like 25%? maybe? But can't remember.
And then Kerdan doesn't show up until MUCH later although he and Allyssa are definitely my favorite/they're why I was into this series and I was hoping it'd be so much more them in this book but ... no Allyssa (view spoile

There are nothing I'd ask for a perfect ending, and this is just PERFECT!

Allyssa and Kerdan together again. And my heart just can't handle the steamy romance!

Savenek is such a gem and I'd want to put him in my pocket lol

I just love all the characters' development and relationship with each other. Though some never had the chance to fully redeem themselves, the others progressed wonderfully. Making it the key to where they are now.
Living happily.

Series ended well

Once again the characters did not disappoint. I only wish (as I've mentioned in the other book reviews for this series) that the verbiage would fit the (assumed) time period and a bit of the writing would have been tighter and didn't leave me asking a question about why the change in perspective. I would recommend this series and consider it a good solid series but just missed 5 stars.

I'm so sad to see this series end

Jennifer Anne Davis is one of my favorite authors! This series is absolutely amazing! The characters, the settings, the plot twist. It's a story that will keep you engaged from the first series "True Reign". I can't wait to see what she gives us next.
Chelsie Reid
I think this was an excellent conclusion to this awesome story. I feel that the chemistry between the characters and their significant others was both humorous and romantic. I also enjoyed the action in the story. I feel that it was nice to see the siblings interact with each other I thought that this was such a wonderful book. My one request is that she continues this epic story.😍
Robert E. Anderson
One of my favorite series.

This series had my emotions up and down through the whole series. It was like living the story myself. Each book was better than the last. Hopefully Jennifer will start another series soon. She will have a bit to top this though. When I started the series I had no clue that it would end like it did.

Loved the ending

OMG! This is one of those amazing books that is a brilliant ending. I am sure that the ending will stay with me for a long time. Karden lit up every scene he was in and the romance was beautiful. I also loved how they showed strong brother-sister bond, the regret that Omar feels. It’s a very believable fantasy and you almost feel like you are there! 😁

A Heartwarming Fantasy/Adventure

The relationships in this book are what I found so compelling. Each character is written in realistic and multidimensional fashion; they are believable. Their interaction with each other draws you into the story so well, you feel as though you belong.

is it me or just my imagination...but i keep seeing uthred's face (from the tv series 'the last kingdom') in kerdan-they seem to have the same attitude and personality. i am not done yet with the book but i can't help's bugging me and i'm not sure yet if i like it or not. ...more

The final book to one of my favorite series. My love for the main characters deepens with appropriate levels of suspense, intrigue and big emotions that make this boom a fun, quick read. It makes me want to reread the series again.

Allyssa and Kerdan

Deceate and treachery are about. The red poison shows up. Odar shows up and wants to reinstate their marriage contract. Telmina and Apethaga are planning to assassinate the rulers of Emporian. They plan a fake wedding to give them more time.

Great wrap up

Good ending to an exciting and easy to read saga. Characters well developed and story line is good. More books like this please!

A great ending and I’m sad it’s over! Hopefully there is a spin off series in the future.

Not my favorite of the series, but it ended on a happy note and everything was nicely wrapped up. Maybe there will be another spin off series!

The final book in the series did not disappoint. It was full of intrigue, surprises, romance, sibling rivalry and a great ending. Well done.

It's exactly the same as the previous book in this series. But I enjoyed the read despite the book's flaws, so it's not just a 1 star reading...

Awesome end

I’ve read the entire series. All are page turners. This end was bittersweet because there won’t be any more stories in this series. :(
