This was a good trilogy, it started kind of slow, but was a good story!

Just a reminder. The "Ruby Throne" trilogy is a serial and, therefore, the individual installments need to be read in order.

Why do we do the things we do in life? My personal opinion is that the system of propaganda we grow up with focuses our attention on some matters and away from others. Pleasantville becomes a constant state for us rather than a place to visit when we need to rest from reality. When two systems meet, dissonance arises and our minds and bodies begin the fight of where we are

I kept waiting for the moment when this book got too long, or too over-the-top, or too dumb, but it never did. I was involved right up until the end. In fact, it got to a point where I wanted to put the book into the freezer. This book ended when it was supposed to, nothing felt contrived or forced, and I loved the story. If you love fantasy, this series is a great read.

Great ending to the trilogy!

Thoroughly enjoyed this trilogy. There is non-stop action and wonderful storytelling. I would recommend this series by Deborah Chester to anyone who likes the genre!

I enjoyed the trilogy, but I felt like the relationships were forced. The lore of the world was intriguing & I wanted more explanations. I also felt that the dialogue was forced & there were characters who could have influenced the story in big ways if they had been developed more fully.

Very entertaining!

This was a good read. Over much to soon, but just right. I was left looking for another book about the children.

Good but missing some plot

I wanted a 3.5. The author is a good writer, but she did the majority of her character development in book 3.
