”War is not loneliest for the dead, or the disappeared.”

We are finally to the end, and every shed tear, every smile of joy and gasp of shock has paid off. This is far and beyond, one of the best stories I’ve ever read – beautifully told in all of its haunting glory – and I just want to recommend it across the world to all who will listen. “This one, right here!” I’ll point and say. “This is the one you need to read.”

From the very first page, of the first book, the Glass Alliance series is a

I barely ate and drank while reading this, and I have a headache from how much I've been crying. It's a glorious, heartbreaking, tragic, magnificent end to a glorious, heartbreaking, tragic, magnificent series (and when Jo expands on the epilogue, y'all can thank me ;)) ...more

What will be the colour of the cover? I'm betting on red for blood of all the characters that will die in this book.

First of all, please only read this review if you've read the previous books, Dark of the West and Storm from the East. There might be spoilers from them.

How can one put into words the immense love one has for a book, for the characters, for a world?

Going in, I knew - or sort of knew - what to expect. Heartbreak - because still, it's a fantasy trilogy based on the two World Wars and, as I said, if you've read the first two books, you're already familiar with the author's way of writing it all.

Wow, I can't believe we've made it to the end of the journey. Thank you to everyone for supporting this series with so much love and enthusiasm—it has been such a joy for me!

I've started sharing some sneak peeks of the final Glass Alliance installment over on my Instagram account (@spitfirewriter). Please do come visit me there! I absolutely love getting to know all of you and that's where you'll find me most often. You'll also find some fun extras like Readalongs for the first two books, if an

rep: biracial protagonist, brown side character, wlw side character, gay side character
cw: descriptions of war, war injuries, etc.

they had us in the first half, i'm not gonna lie...

seriously though, I think some parts of this book could've been cut, just because hathaway goes very in-depth about battle, which got a bit tedious. I think that might've been better suited for an adult market, not a ya one. that being said tho, looking back, it did feel more realistic, I guess? wars are often long ga

Overall stars: 3.4, but it DRAGGED. If it wasn't so masterfully done, it would be a 3 star.

In the third and final installment of The Glass Alliance series, Aurelia and Athan fight daily for the things they believe in (honestly, I still am not fully sure what that is, though). "Storm from the East" brings betrayals to their head. See my review for "Dark of the West" to talk about the basics.

For me, this book had such potential. The first one set up the rest of the series so well and I enjoyed t

I receievd a digital copy of this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for a review. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Oh My Heart! 💔

The third and final book in the Glass Alliance series by Joanna Hathaway @spitfirewriter completes Ali and Athan’s story as they make their way through war torn countries on ground and in the sky.

This book contains the same beautiful, lyrical writing as the first two bookts and set my soul afire. I can’t wait to get my hands on a physical copy to finish my collection.

I had to take several bre

This is a fantastic ending to one of the best series I've read in a long time. Seriously, from the first chapter the last, I was riveted and this book had me turning pages as the fate of our beloved characters hung in the balance. Really trying hard not to give away any plot points here, so I will be vague, but what I especially loved was Ali's development from a pampered princess to . . . what she eventually becomes. There are some brilliant scenes at the beginning (well, all the way through) t ...more

I felt like this book was so slow. I didn't feel hooked into the book and just took everything I had in me to finish. However, I did love the character development and felt like the characters' stories were told and there were no lose endings, All in all, this was an average book. ...more

Joanna was born in Montréal and is an avid storyteller who was inspired to write after reading her great-grandfather’s memoirs of the First World War. A lifelong history buff, she now has shelves filled with biographies and historical accounts, and perhaps one too many books about pilots. She can often be found reading, traveling, or riding horses.
