The Twisted Sisters are coming home.

Prince Quin has returned to the river kingdom, ready to spearhead a rebellion and reclaim the throne. He vows to destroy Mia, Pilar, and Angelyne if they oppose him—even if he must use his newfound magic to set the world aflame.

Across the four kingdoms, the elements have been tipped askew. Volcanoes erupt, glaciers collapse, and cities s

there’s a giveaway for all three books in this series (signed by bree barton!!) up on my instagram! check it out by clicking here!

when i say this series was wild, i mean it was wild. it messed with my head, feelings and most of all: my sanity. i’ve screamed, i’ve cried and i’ve stared at the pages thinking to myself “how did i get here?”. but i’m fine, i’m fine, i am fine!! we’ve survived (have we?) and that’s all that matters.

soul of cinder is an amazing conclusion and in my opinion the best pa

I received an Advance Reader Copy from the publisher. This in no way impacted on my view.

Immediately following the explosive events of Tears of Frost, our cast of characters are recovering in their own ways. For Mia and Pilar, they are getting to grips with being half-sisters, and travelling with Nelladine to Pembuk, the glass kingdom, in order to speak with the Shadowess, and discover if Mia can regain her feelings and sensations, and for Pilar to come to terms with the horrific suffering she h

Soul of Cinder is the third and final installment in the Heart of Thorns trilogy. I have mixed feelings about this trilogy but as a whole, I really enjoyed following this feminist story about magic and woman wanting to stop the abuse that kept happening to them over decades. I really loved the concept and how magic was only something women could have. What I did not expect was how dark this trilogy came to be. It deals with a lot of important issues such as colonialism, sexual assault, rape, and ...more

I have mixed feelings about this series, book one I loved book 2 not so much and book 3 Soul of Cinder i actually ended up quite enjoying, although I still had issues with it.

As this is book 3 I won't say to much about it as I wouldn't want to spoil anything, but this one again follows Mia, Quin and Pillar on their journey of healing really.

Mia is still suffering from loss of feeling after the events of book 1/2 and is desperate to feel something again, pillar is still trying to deal with what

This is the book that I really enjoyed the most! The pacing was fantastic, and the whole book had this atmosphere of everything finally unravelling and coming to an end.

I didn't expect to love it as much as I did. You know how sometimes you imagine how a book might end? I didn't imagine it would be like this, and it was definitely better than what my imagination conjured up.

As you progress through the story, you feel the characters are finally resolving their deeply-rooted issues and getting som

SOUL OF CINDER is an intriguing conclusion to a dark YA fantasy trilogy. While in the first book we witnessed Mia's point-of-view and that was augmented with Pilar's point-of-view in the second, in this final book, we bear witness to Mia, Pilar, and Quin. Mia and Pilar have left behind the snow kingdom in ruins and have traveled to a place in the glass kingdom that promises healing as wanderers are often on their way to the island of forgetting.

Mia and Pilar feel broken by life, the tough decisi

(Disclaimer: I received this book from the publisher. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.)

TW: suicidal ideation, mentions of rape and victim blaming

Soul of Cinder is a series finale that discusses the nature of healing and forgiveness. How fitting that a series about trauma and survival would end by discussing how we process, heal, and forgive (others and ourselves). The scars of hurt, betrayal, and trauma live in our hearts, but how do we let others in and define our

TW: sexual assault, suicidal ideation, trauma

Once again, I have to thank Bree for the inclusion of trigger warnings at the beginning.

Following on from the harshness of Tears of Frost, this read begins as more of a slow burn but oh wow do we get so much character development and a great conclusion to the story. It’s so painfully obvious how broken with bad faults the characters are, but they begin to acknowledge and understand these flaws.

“I always wanted to get married and have children. You tho

well, here we go. This will be the book that determines whether or not Bree Barton’s books are for me. I was not a huge fan of the first two books; mainly because of the very forced and unnatural-feeling feminism shoved in.

I have a terrible feeling this one will have even more of that.
