The Sky Weaver
Lavish, romantic and magical, The Sky Weaver is a new standalone story set in the world of The Last Namsara - one that fans of Leigh Bardugo, Holly Black and Laini Taylor will flock to
At the end of one world, there always lies another.
Safire, a soldier, knows her role in this world is to serve the King of Firgaard-helping to maintain the peace in her oft-troubled natio...more
The Sky Weaver is a spellbinding fantasy adventure, in a world that is animated with beautiful writing and clever plotting. Across multiple vividly portrayed landscapes, the wonderful array of characters bring this world of myths, Gods, pirates and dragons to life. The characters are well layered with diverse capabilities and personalities, some new to this novel and others as they take on the next stage of their journey in the trilogy. The two main characters, Safire and Eris, each nar ...more

From the stronghold of Firgaard, through the Rift Mountains, and the desert Sand Sea back to the Scrublands and beyond, the Iskari series has taken place all over the map. If on foot, by horse or via dragons, it has been an amazing adventure full of lore, vivid settings, amazing characters, and gorgeous writing. There is only one way left to travel now, and that is via sea vessel where the last book of the Iskari series takes us out onto the Silver Sea, beyond the horizon to the Star Is ...more
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. S ...more

oh what's this? all my love for this book and its characters? absolutely! know that i would die for safire and eris and asha and sorrow in a heartbeat
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 sittin ...more
This was by far the best in this trilogy, in my opinion. But still I think the writing style isn't for me, because I like things happening in a more slow passing. What I enjoyed a lot in this one was the main characters, I felt a connection to them!
What I liked:
- The romace was super cute (enemies-to-lovers and f/f)
- We had more dragons in this one than in the second book
- The plot was really intriguing
- Safire is such an amazing character
- The Gods history was a nice touch
What I did ...more
Safire and Eris were great characters. They were interesting and had good chemistry. Both have traumatic pasts but ha ...more
#2 The Caged Queen: ★★☆☆☆ | 2 stars
The Sky Weaver was an improvement over the last book! The characters and plot were more developed and there was more action and tension to make things interesting. Eris and Safire were lovely characters to follow as they narrated the story and the slow build of their relationship was super sweet to read.
The writing and plot continued to be really easy to get into and follow. Nothing too overtly complicated happene ...more
The final installment in the Iskari Chronicles, The Sky Weaver nicely pulls together threads from the previous two books, while also containing a great f/f enemies to lovers romance! I might recommend this to fans of the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas- a political fantasy with a strong romantic element. I really enjoyed this one and would love to see it on more people's radar. Safire and Eris are great characters and the development of their relationship is well-d ...more
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 think I make it pretty clear in my review, but I’m adding this just in case. There’s a f/f romance between the two main characters of this story. It’s slow burn enemies to lovers and I loved it.
I’m so sad that this series has ended, but this book was a great ending. It’s sort of Safire’s book, but it’s also so much more than that. It’s a story about pirates, thieves, gods and dragons. I’d also say it’s a story of belonging and surviving. ...more
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 ...more
I do have to admit that Asha, Torwin, & Kozu were my favorites still. I absolutely adore Asha, and I always will.
I liked how I didn't guess the major reveals until just before they were revealed. I enjoyed how this book kept things interesting, but still believable (not outrageous).
The romance (of course t ...more
I already really liked Safire from the previous two books, and I was really glad to see that this story was hers! While she stumbled a lot for me in the story, it ended up making me like her more. While she did hold on to her ideals a little longer than I expected, she did question them for most of the book, and I liked that. I also like where the story ended up taking her, in terms of her dreams and wishes and the fact (view spoiler)[ she felt l ...more
What an amazing ending to the series! I loved series from start to finish and hope there are some spin off books or even novellas.
This storyline was quite different to what I was expecting but it was SO imaginative and I really enjoyed it. Eris was a brilliant character and although I had an idea, I didn't guess the twist because I was enjoying it way too much to even try! Safire has been a favourite throughout the series so I loved that she was a elad character with Eris.
I adored the ...more
The Sky Weaver is Safire’s story. Throughout books one and two we readers have learnt only a little about Safire. Cousin to the king but never treated as an equal due to her mother’s low standing. Now she is King Dax’s Commander. When a thief steals a precious gem in ...more
I started The Last Namsara this time last year, on a whim. I’d traded for it, knowing nothing about the contents apart from that it was about a dragon slayer. Dragon fantasy has really been representing my reading tastes for a while. So reading and loving The Last Namsara was not unusual.
And while I think I prefer The Last Namsara over The Caged Queen, The Sky ...more
I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This review is spoiler-free.
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 Ciccar ...more

First thoughts: Again another book with a completely different feel than the first two. Each book in this series is connected to the other, but also so very different, which I like.
To me, the second half of the book was where it got interesting.
Also, there was a touch of love, but while important, it wasn't the focus of the story, so Yay for that.
The Sky Weaver is the third book set in The Last Namsara world by Kristen Ciccarelli. It’s a world full of magic, dragons, myths and legends. Stories of kings and queens, and everything in between. Safire is a soldier. Charged with protecting her king and keeping the peace in her unsettled world, she finds herself stuck with her polar opposite, the pirate Eris, when they set out on a quest to find Asha - the last Namsara. Joined together, the pair f ...more
Second read on audiobook and the narrator is wonderful. Highly recommend!

Kor kneep zijn ogen tot spleetjes. 'En waarom zou die man mij iets kunnen schelen?'
Safire keek hem aan. 'Omdat ik degene ben die een mes in zijn hart heeft gestoken.”
