The King has fallen!

While Stavros moves to take over Lars’s throne, the war for the entire kingdom begins. However, this is no ordinary war against Seelie or Unseelie. The real enemy is the most powerful object in the world. The Stone of Fail.

Lars isn’t the only one the stone wants. Zoey Daniels is next on its list. And the stone will do whatever it takes to finally get th

It is a bittersweet thing when you come to the end of a series. And let me tell you that THIS one is such a mind-blowing book. We come to the climax of what everything has been leading up to and everyone from all the other books is back for this final show-down. This book has it all. It is heart-wrenching, breath-taking, beautiful, full of heart stopping rage and sadness. Nobody is safe in this one. I have been a fan of Stacey Marie Brown since I first picked up her series (although I read it ba ...more

Absolutely amazing!! It's been a complete whirlwind reading through the three different series. This finale was everything I could have hoped for and more! Very few books have evoked as much emotion as this one did for me. I'm sad it's over but enjoyed the ride while it lasted!

Holy nerf-herding crap on ash bark honey tits shite! I can't believe that this journey is at an end. I am so overcome with emotions right now that it feels like the cosmos are breaking apart inside my head and heart. This world that Stacey Marie Brown has created in the Darkness series, the Collector series, and the Lightness Saga is brilliant. Fucking brilliant, okay? The scope of the story arcing over these three series is daunting and in

“Holy nut-cracking nerf-herder!”

Talk about saving the best until last!

In my review for ‘The Fall of The King’ I wrote that this book was going to be “EPIC. UNPREDICTABLE. EXHILARATING; I just hope we can survive it.”
Well... that was an understatement of epic proportions.

I survived...barely. But I survived.

This book was one hell of an ending to an already phenomenal series.
A book that sees all characters from previous series coming together and fighting a fight that will define everyone’s fut

Definitely a satisfying end to the series. This book picks up right after the the events from the Fall of the King, and finally brings all of our favorite characters together for one hell of a finale. Was it the best of them... almost, but not quite, for me that honor will always go to the collector series and Zoey and Ryker. BUT, this one still had everything I wanted in a series ending - I laughed, cried, worried cheered, and really just didn't want it all to end. We get plenty of tim

I can not believe how amazing this book was. Also to put 2 series of hers into one that was just a surprise and awesome. I was crying laughing and crying. I loved this! Best book hands down

Holy Honey Gods, this book did an amazing job tying all three series together. The chemistry between all the couples was so good. The death of a secondary character was so sad. I was like Noooo! Oh the feels! They were all over the place.

P.S. I received this book from the Author, and all views are strictly my own. This is my honest review.

An epic conclusion to an epic series.

Well for the love of Saint Honey Tits, Holy Nerf-Herder, and Crap on ash bark!!! This. Book. Was. AWETASTICMAZING!! This was an edge of your seat thrill ride of epic proportions from the first sentence until the last. That's it shut it down because there will never be another series to equal this one. Stacey Marie Brown is a mistress of the written word, the Leonardo DaVinci of literature, and a true artist. I mean who else can write a 13 book three series ma

Holy nerf-herding honey tits!! what an epic conclusion to this simply phenomenal series! I loved every book in these series with the characters all melding themselves into my heart and you get to see all of them back together in this epic battle.

SMB has outdone herself on this, she has surpassed my expectations and delivered a book filled with so much emotion, passion, hope, darkness, terror, pain, and the strength and loyalty from them all really hits you. She has made these characters feel so

A phenomenal end.

To say that I’m a fan of these series would be an understatement. Ms. Brown, I hardly have words beyond thank you! You wrote a compelling, emotional roller coaster of a finale with Rise From the Embers and I’m sad that it’s over but I know I’ll find myself back reading them all again.

Ember, Kennedy, Fionna and Zoey are kickass women; strong, intelligent, funny, sarcastic and fierce. They don’t need mates to define them but Eli, Lorcan, Lars And Ryker bring out even more from t

Where to begin?
I would like to begin with saying it was amazing !! More then amazing.
When the characters where introduced I was screaming like a teenage girl on a Bieber concert.
No kidding , I am deadly serious..

It started with suspense and it did not stop.
It was suspense through and through.
We got some hot Eli and Ember scenes .. Missed those !
We got the sub-fae and I freaking LOVE them !!!
They make the books so much more fun.
There were deaths but you could never have guessed whom ..

I was beyond excited for this book, when starting reading it was bittersweet knowing that this would be the end of the series. I loved having all the characters come together in such a fantastic conclusion. By far this is my favorite book (even with all the tough parts) of all three series. Stacey definitely saved the best for last when writing this one. She did not hold back as she sends you on an emotional roller coaster that I personally wasn’t ready for – love, torment, passion, terror, hear ...more

Holy nerf-herding, crap on ash bark, honey tits! I anticipated one of my favorite authors to write an epic finale to her three intertwined series, but Brown has once again outdone any expectations I could fathom. This book alone harbored so much emotion, terror, passion, darkness, hope, desolation, strength and fierceness that it enthralled me to my very core. She already made me care about her so-real characters so this finale truly wrenched in those strings. She gave her Four fierce heroines a ...more

Fantastic ending to a saga!

This was like Avengers (infinity war) where all your favorite and beloved characters came together. This is told from 4 different povs and the storyline flows steady and easy. If you haven't read any other work by this author, go back to the beginning. This book is the end of 3 fantastic series that all exist in the same universe.

There were some grammatical/wording errors in this one. Cooper was called Copper, the DLR was referred to as the DNR. But it still gets 5 sup

I loved the world the author created even though I read the series's out of order. I first found the Collector Series and fell in love with the world and the characters so when I found out that there were more from this world, I devoured the Darkness Saga and loved it even more. I was so glad this finally series brought all the beloved characters together and I fell it was closed nicely. I rarely read books over but I just might read these ones again, in order this time, straight through without ...more

Oh my wow! I don’t even know what to say than crap on Ash bark! This book was amazing! Make sure to have tissues on had because you will definitely go through a roller coaster ride! I loved having all the characters together in this book! I forgot how much I missed Sprig! Man I’m so sad it’s over but the ending couldn’t have been better! Can’t wait to see what else is in store!

WOW! This was an amazing ending to a great series! What I have always loved about the series is how strong the women are and they don’t disappoint from beginning to end along with the amazing men standing beside them.

The unexpected twists and turns had me on the edge of my seat until the end. I laughed and cried. Family is not necessarily what you are born into but what you create with the people you love. The meshing of all the characters was done so well that you felt they always belonged tog

This is the best series i have read in years! I love this book. It's a must read. So sad it's over!

The best was saved for last!

Stacey Marie Brown is so talented and has certainly outdone herself with this heart-stopping conclusion of the Dark/Light/Collector series.

Rise from the Embers starts right where The Fall of the King ends and takes off like an E-ride at Disneyland, not letting you off until the very last page. It left me breathless but still wanting more.

This book was outstanding and oh, the feels with this one. It had the perfect mixture of action, drama, humor with twist and turns

What a great ending to a fantastic set of series! It was an emotional rollercoaster but well worth it. I loved when everyone finally met. I couldn’t stop laughing when sprig and the pixies met. I am already missing all the characters but I’m so glad I have all the books so they are never far away. Thank you Stacy Marie Brown for sharing these great stories with us.

What an amazing ending!!! Action, love, heartbreak, deceit, betrayal, and a sprite monkey!!! Absolutely worth a read after reading all of her other series of course!!!

Brilliant end to the saga. Couldn't put it down till I'd finished the book. Best series ever from start to finish.

All hail, to Queen Stacey!

Love, happiness, laughter, sadness, fear, anxiety, animosity... these are just a few things that you will experience in this final, thrilling installement of the Lightness Series, by Stacey Marie Brown.
Never before have I read a final book in a series that wraps everything up in such a masterful way. No thread is left unanswered even if that thread is cut forever. Over the years I've been reading these books, the characters have become more than words written on a page

The best of the best

I made sure I paced myself with reading this book because I knew I'd not want it to end, but alas end it did, and boy oh boy what a damn fine conclusion!!

This book was just superb. I loved every word on every page. All the characters being brought together again was just fantastic, and all the "omg" moments were sublime!!

Thank you to Stacey Marie Brown for writing a truly amazing book. I never saw a lot of the omg moments coming but wowee they were awesome. You are awesome!!

Perfection!!! This is truly a wonderful conclusion to these 3 series. SMB's Darkness series is one of my all time faves. Getting to see Eli and Ember once again was like coming back home for me. Add the other amazing characters who I've come to love and you have the perfect formula. I have to thank the Gods for Cal, Simmons, and Sprig. They kept me sane throughout the stress and anxiety while reading this. Best part of all... there is definitely a possible future for these characters if SMB wish ...more

OMG! You will LOVE this book!

Rise from the Embers is the perfect ending to the Darkness series, Collector series and Lightness Saga. This grand finale is packed full of drama, action and most of all emotion. There are so many twists you might end up with whiplash.
I'm sad its over, I love every one of these characters, even ones you think you will hate forever have a way of growing on you (kind of like a fungus... *cough* Lorcan *cough*) but they will all be missed nonetheless.
I have loved Stace
