I still stand by what I said.

Nahri and Ali better not get together romantically or I will revolt.

I honestly can't even *imagine* what direction this book will take after the events of book #2 but I AM SO FREAKING EXCITED and it'll 100% worth however damn long the wait is. I just want my children (ALI AND NAHRI) happy and safe

Omg would you just look at that GORGEOUS cover!

Now that I'm all hyped up again, I'm 100% sure that I need an ARC. Besides, I've been dangling off the cliff in book 2 for far too long already and I'm not strong enough to hold on for much longer.

And does the fact that I've never recieved an ARC before (sob) stop me from promising to do anything and everything to get my hands on this

Actual Rating: 4.7/5 rounded up to a full 5!

If you know me at all youll know how much this series means to me. Ive fallen in love with this world and characters since the first book released and Ive been waiting desperately - and nervously 😅- for the final book.
Now that Ive read it I can definitely say that it solidifies the trilogy as one of my all time favorite book series ever.

I finished reading this two days ago, but Im not ready to move on. I enjoyed it from start to finish!!

There are not enough stars on the rating scale to give this grand finale to the Daevabad Trilogy.

I'll be short and to the point: this book was phenomenal. I started this series with little expectations, and I devoured books one and two in about two days. I knew that this series had the ability to become one of my favorite series of all time. And S. A. Chakraborty did not disappoint.

This story was bittersweet, sometimes hard to read. It was raw, it examined people's darkest desires--the lengths

Thanks NetGalley and the publisher for the digital copy in exchange for an honest review.

After Daevabad's fall, we follow two different paths: Nahri and Ali trying to survive after fleeing the city and going to Cairo and Manizheh, Dara and some other important characters in Daevabad dealing with the city and its people without magic and all the politics the we love so much in

This book had to convince me on a lot of things (especially Dara tbh). I've like the other books, but I never really fell in love with them. I also found them to be really slow for the most part. This one though? I was sucked in, and I ended up loving things and characters that I never expected to. I grew to truly understand the world and its characters. As the final book in a trilogy, I think this is gonna make die hard fans really happy. As someone who was skeptical going in, it

I was so, so, so lucky to get a galley for this book. The wait was *agony* but I got through it. The rest of you have to wait until June but it will be alright. It's worth the wait!

This book was almost 800 pages of pure magic.

I was so sad to say goodbye. I was so impressed not only with the way this final installment tied everything together, but also the comments about the trauma of colonization. It was a way to connect this fantastical world to our own, since the world still experiences the

This has to be without doubt the best fantacy Book series i have read after Harry Potter series and the hunger games series. It magically hooks the reader and opens your imagination to a wild wild magical world where reality and myth mix in such a extraordinary way that all seems way too real to be fantasy. So tangible. You could feel the magic pouring from the pages.

I cannot wait to the third book! I have read the second book in literally 1 day. I couldnt move. Became literally frozen.

First of all, I'd like to thank Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an e-ARC of this fantastic book in exchange for an honest review.

(I've read this book in a couple of days when I have a dissertation project to write, so I think I can safely say this was AMAZING.)

This review contains spoilers (but they are minimal).

The Empire of Gold is the concluding volume in The Daevabad Trilogy, and unlike some other conclusions of fantasy trilogies I've read in the past year, Chakraborty
