Full Trilogy Review:

I really enjoyed reading this trilogy. There are so many secrets and twists and turns in the plot it is easy to become engrossed and it is hard to put down. The story moves at a solidly fast pace and is packed with many moments of gripping action which pulled me in from the start. There is a good deal of thought and time put into every element of these

I feel a little bit like Frodo from Lord of the Rings right now.

“It’s done.”

I honestly had no words when I finished reading this book. It took me on an adventure and left me DEEPLY wondering if these characters would be successful.

So much hoping.
So much fighting.
So much...crying?

Yes, I cried. And more than once so be forewarned readers! I cried because I was happy and because I was sad. I felt like a little ball of emotions throughout all of this.

Recommends it for: Fans of J.L. Mbewe's previous works
It's bittersweet to come to the end of this trilogy that I started reading nearly 5 years ago with Secrets Kept.

Curse Bound is powerfully emotional. It was quite an adventure and man, was I worried about these characters. I couldn’t believe how attached I was. I felt like these were my friends and I needed to get into this world and help them. Whew.

J. L. Mbewe’s writing as absolutely breathtaking. The world building is incredible. I could see the scenes perfectly in my mind, and this helped the realistic feel, even as a fantasy. I love when fantasy is written so well, you forget it isn’t real! That takes

I've been following this series and waiting with bated breath for the final chapter in the trilogy for what seems like forever!!! I feel like I need to re-read the entire trilogy back-to-back-to-back at some point, but my memory is pretty good and I didn't want to wait... so I snatched this up and read it as soon as it was available. And it was every bit the epic conclusion I'd been hoping for. The characters all had to dig deep and face some of their greatest fears. The epic war that has been b ...more
