The Brightest Embers
Ivy thought that she and Adrian had conquered their fates. Yet with thousands of innocents still trapped in the demon realms, she’s determined to locate the final hallowed weapon and harness its unparalleled power to free them. But the last relic nearly put Ivy in the grave—there’s probably no coming back from this one.
Once again, I have been throughly entertained by Jeaniene Frost. She never fails to creare interesting and captivating plots.
However, I still feel that this series is not as good as her Night Huntress books. The romance here, although very nice, is not as dramatic and breathtaking as Bone and Kat's is. Although, it is still better than most romances in Urban Fantasy books. Nevertheless, I missed more intensity regarding to emotional conflicts inside the romance.

My feelings are a little mixed on this book. I liked it but it didn't wow me in any way. This is the third book in the Broken Destiny series which really does need to be read in order since each book builds on the events of the previous installments. I thought that this book brought the series to a satisfactory conclusion and was a fairly quick listen.

Thanks to the publisher for generously providing me an ARC to review.
The Broken Destiny series was a wild ride, for sure. I don't want to say it isn't as good as the Cat and Bones books because it really is, especially this last one. They're just so different ...more
It's still not easy being Ivy. Running away from or fighting supernatural enemies and an utmost mission put so much pressure on her shoulders. I think I enjoyed this one more than the others because Ivy seemed more mature and her moments of doubt made me feel for her and realize how tough and heavy these new responsabilities are. Also because for the first time, I really see Ivy and Adrian as a couple. There's a complicity between them and things are not as complex as they were. But I feel l ...more

The Brightest Embers is the third and final installment in author Jeaniene Frost's Broken Destiny series. As the story opens, Ivy Jenkins and her husband Adrian are attempting to find the third and final hallowed weapon that will not only save the thousands of innocent humans trapped in the demon realm, but to do so before any other demon, including Demetrius, can get to it first, and therefore turn it into a weapon that could unle ...more
So I hate giving Jeaniene Frost a bad review. She's one of my favourite authors and the one who opened my eyes to the amazingness that is paranormal romance. But I have one rule - if I skim any part of a book, it gets 3 stars or less... and I skimmed a lot of this book.
The first book in the series got my attention and I did enjoy it, though Ivy did annoy me a bit from that book already. And the second book wasn't too bad, though I didn't love it. I don't know if the big gap between ...more
When I read the first book in the Broken Destiny series, I likened it to Supernatural. The Brightest Embers doubles down on that similarity in a glorious fashion while packing in so much romance and a heroine who will not allow others to define her or set her course.
Basically, The Brightest Embers is nonstop adventure of a book with fights that literally bring the roof down and the kind of romance swoon-y scenes that you’ll want to bookma ...more
Decent, but frustratingly predictable
in every way. In the end, I found myself staying for the wonderful narrator of m this audiobook.

The Brightest Embers was a pulse-pounding, insanely epic ending to the Broken Destiny trilogy and I hated to put it down for even a second. The emotions were more intense and the stakes higher than ever for our hero and heroine but they faced everything head on with courage–and with the knowledge that their love could conquer just about anything.

It took me some hours to get my head clear again, after finishing this book. The end was full of shocking moments and I wasnt prepared for them at all.
Ivy knows that if she wants to free all those humans trapped in the demon’s kingdom, she has to find and use the holy weapon. But is she really willing to give up her own life to free those, she doesnt even know? And why is Adrian lying to her and keeping important information back? Is this his way of helping her? Or has he already betray ...more
I listened to The Beautiful Ashes as a "reread" right before getting The Sweetest Burn. I was able to get both in digital audio from the library. Now I was also able to finish the trilogy with The Brightest Embers, getting the audio at the library.
Ivy is a new adult. Somehow I expected her to be less whiny and at least, learn and grow throughout the series. I was excited to think she would build a team and they would work toget
The story is familiar and yet something was missing. It felt a bit rushed, specially at the end.
I would like to have seen a bit more, and explore that big surprise and see what comes out of it. I expected it to happen, so when the big reveal came about, I had already predicted it.
I wish there was a little bit more emotion between the characters. The whole thing felt like a big race and when they finally get to the end and you are ...more
I enjoyed this series and this last book was the best of all of them. The pacing was good and there was plenty of action. I even teared up a few times and laughed at others. I did feel the ending was too abrupt though. It just felt like there should've been a little more resolution, and maybe a reunion with Brutus and Jasmine, maybe? Or an epilogue about what happened to everyone after everythin ...more
The action, the twists and turns you don’t know what is going to happen. I couldn’t predict anything it was freaking great!
Ivy in my eyes grew into herself in this book and Adrian had to trust in her that she knew what was best.
I loved the war parts, I thought they were very well written and I couldn’t get enough. I wanted more.
I love the ending omg did I!
Great series loved the narration!
I’ve loved every other series and most novellas this woman has written. The Night Prince series is immortalized as one of my favorites. Who doesn’t love Cat and Bones adventures? And don’t get me started on my love for Mencheres and my lust to read Ian’s series. With that said, I read this series with the same high expectations but I knew since the first book, Frost’s literary magic wasn’t here. The Broken Destiny series is imaginative but very linear and mildly complex ...more
