I honestly do not understand why this series, and this book in particular, did not take the YA world by storm. This is one of those rare series where the books just keep getting better and better, and this last book just totally blew me away! It has everything an excellent fantasy book should have, plus elements of almost every other genre out there. There's sci-fi and dystopia and romance and everything I love about books.

One of my

This book! So, I enjoyed the first two in this series. They were nice fantasy stories that involved interesting societies with some cool gender roles. The magic and the science were one in the same. There were "Ancients", but I didn't put much thought into them other than a ruined society of high technology. This book completely blew my mind away!

Before I get to why this book is way more than a solid 5/5, I'll go through the basics.

The characters are

(3.5 stars) This is the third and concluding volume of the series. With Queen Thela in control of the Lions Bloom, all seems lost, as she literally has the power to rewrite the world. The only hope left is the mythical Book of the Night, and the search is on so that the world might be saved. The revelations that follow will change the world and their perspectives in an entirely new way. The concluding volume brings together some of the curious elements that have been presented and pulls them all ...more

Wow. This is a definate game changer in the series. I honestly wish the whole series had stayed on this level of writing, because if it did the series would have been more popular than it is.

It's hard to explain what happens in this book, but it's awe-inspiring and mind blowing. I was reluctant to read this book as the second book put me off of the series, but I am glad I did.

Pearl North pulls some amazing plot twists into this third and final installment and I feel any lover of books will

This is a complex and fascinating read. You can read it alone, though you'll miss a lot of detail and story elements from the first two books. Lots of action, a bit of steampunk, and prepare for deep thoughts at the end.
