-- I received this book through NetGalley against an honest review. --

I love this series and I was eager to read this last volume, I was lucky to have it in advance and it is really good.

This last volume focuses on Safire, commander of Dax's armies, she had to fight all her life. First against exclusion because of her status of semi-blood and then against the men who regularly targeted her. She is a strong character because of her career and I liked that she is the heroine of this last volume.

I make no secret of the fact that the Iskari series has been pretty hit or miss for me. I enjoyed The Last Namsara, but I actually DNFed The Caged Queen. I was a little nervous going into The Sky Weaver, but I’m so happy I decided to give this series another chance.

The reason that I wanted to read this book is because I’ve really enjoyed

Safire is totally focussed on her job, protecting the Dragon King, and doing her part to save the country from starvation. Things are made more difficult when an annoying thief steals the jewel that was going to fund feeding a nation.

I received a free copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
I confess that I have read the first book in the series, but haven't got round to the second yet (which follows Dax's story). Knowing Asha's story from The Last Namsara, it was easy to slip back

It is official: this series is going in my forever favorites, alongside Harry Potter, The Infernal Devices and Narnia. This is the highest honor as I usually wait a while to be sure of it, but I’m sure. These books are so rich and deep and have so much wisdom to offer, and the writing is so amazing... all three books are standalones though and can be read in any order, though I think the original order is the most fun. But enough about the big picture, let’s focus on the Skyweaver.

Wow, this was a perfect ending to a perfect series!

This book was amazingly written and well thought out. It was just the best conclusion to an amazing series. I have been waiting all year for this release and I can for sure, without a doubt, say that it was well worth the wait! I know that I will miss getting to read more about the characters, but I just love the way it ended and I can rest easy tonight knowing everyone in this amazing world is happy and okay!

Thank you so much to Wunderkind PR for sending me THE SKY WEAVER to read and review! All thoughts and opinions are my own.


If I thought my emotions were all over the place after The Last Namsara and The Caged Queen then that was nothing compared to all the feels that The Sky Weaver has given me. The Sky Weaver had been hooked from page one and I stayed up way past my bed time to finish it. It is very rare that I can read a book in one

What a beautiful ending to the ISKARI trilogy--THE SKY WEAVER manages to both stand on its own and feel like a perfect wrap up. I've always loved stories about old gods and old stories, but I've never read any that treat them quite as the Iskari trilogy does--like stars to be plucked from the sky and made human. If THE LAST NAMSARA was the Old Testament with dragons--Asha a prophet chosen, unwilling, to expiate her people's crimes--THE SKY WEAVER is Norse mythology with dragons, where humans and ...more

I have been anxiously awaiting The Sky Weaver for some time now and fan-girl squealed in delight when I was give an ARC from Netgalley. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. I have previously enjoyed these books on Audible and it really impacted my enjoyment of the book even reading it. If you’re getting caught up in the series, I highly recommend enjoying The Last Namsara (with one of the best narration I’ve enjoyed in some time) and The Caged Queen. I know I will be enjoying this book again when it ...more

The Sky Weaver was a wonderful, heartfelt book that was the perfect third book in the Iskari series. The mythology that Kristen Ciccarelli has been weaving (no pun intended) through the other two books comes full circle with The Sky Weaver, and I loved learning about Skye, Crow, and the backstory of the gods a bit more.

Safire has always been a point of interest for me but not a favourite character, but I definitely came to appreciate her more and more in this book. The rigidity of her character

I have to say that this was probably my favorite in terms of the myths woven in to the story. The story of The Sky Weaver and the Crow was so fantastic. And the way it was told and the way it connected to the current story of Safire and Eris was just great. Third book in and we finally get a story for Asha and Dax's cousin Safire, who has been a constant in the previous books. Safire is determined to protect those she loves even if it is from the Death Dancer. Who both infuriates her and ...more

The magic of style from the first book continues in ‘The Last Sky Weaver.’

Safire is a strong presence in the other books and this doesn’t change as the focus shifts to her and her new found ‘thorn in her side,’ Eris.

Eris is a skilled thief,m and what makes her even better is that she’s a pirate thief, and let me tell you, she is a great character.

The chemistry and interaction between Safire is really well done, you don’t feel like they’re forced together

I've loved the Iskari series since I read the Last Namsara about 2 years ago. I can't believe we finally have the third and final book. The Sky Weaver introduces more about the mythology of the Star Isles and two new characters. Safire, the Commandant of Firgaard, wants to do what right for her country. Eris, a pirate and Deathdancer, has no qualms about cheating, lying or stealing. These two are certainly enemies, but might have to work together in order to save Asha, Safire's cousin.

When I read the second book in the Iskari series I had so much trouble getting into the story, but this time I was hooked pretty quickly. I love pirate stories, and I love dragon stories. Imagine my happiness when the two are mixed :)
Both Eris and Safire are very strong female characters, which I loved. I

This one was pretty good. It took me a little bit to get back into the story and world. There were also some unrealistic aspects to the story (and I'm not talking about magic, Gods and dragons). The plot was timed nicely, though it did get a little predictable at the end. I also found myself rolling my eyes at the main characters sometimes because of their wishy-washyness, i.e. I love her, I hate her, I love her, I hate her. All that being said, I did actually enjoy this book and am glad I read ...more

WHAT A WAY TO END THE SERIES.

I loved this so much. It's f/f, it's action-packed, it's filled with dragons and otherworldly magic, and all my favourites are back to save the day. It was an adventure from start to finish and I had a stupidly huge grin on my face (in the middle of a cafe) as I turned the last page. Props to Kristen Ciccarelli for writing one of the best companion trilogies I've ever read.

I haven’t yet read this book. But pre-ordered and arrived today. A little disappointed, because I have such book OCD, I noticed this book dust cover art work is unlike the other two and does not have that “shimmering” effect to it. Lettering is yellow and blurred and looks really off from the others. Just wondering if anyone else has noticed this? Wondering why they changed the style of artwork.
Excited to read and will update review when I do.

Thank you to the publisher and netgalley for provided me with an e-arc of Sky Weaver!

I love this series and this final installation did not disappoint! This world with all its Mythology and dragons is one of my favourites.

This follows Seafire, cousin to the King and I loved every minute of it! I read the whole book in 2 sittings!
