-- I received this book through NetGalley against an honest review. --

I love this series and I was eager to read this last volume, I was lucky to have it in advance and it is really good.

This last volume focuses on Safire, commander of Dax's armies, she had to fight all her life. First against exclusion because of her status of semi-blood and then against the men who regularly targeted her. She is a strong character because of her career and I liked that she is the heroine of this last volume.

Actual Rating: 4.5 stars

The final installment in the Iskari Chronicles, The Sky Weaver nicely pulls together threads from the previous two books, while also containing a great f/f enemies to lovers romance! I might recommend this to fans of the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas- a political fantasy with a strong romantic element. I really enjoyed this one and would love to see it on more people's radar. Safire and Eris are great characters and the development of their relationship is

I loved this so much. It's f/f, it's action-packed, it's filled with dragons and otherworldly magic, and all my favourites are back to save the day. It was an adventure from start to finish and I had a stupidly huge grin on my face (in the middle of a cafe) as I turned the last page. Props to Kristen Ciccarelli for writing one of the best companion trilogies I've ever read.

Not my favourite of the three companion books. But I love the romance and the mythology behind this book! It was very interesting. I really enjoyed this.

The Sky Weaver by Kristen Ciccarelli (AT LEAST 5 stars)

I think I make it pretty clear in my review, but I’m adding this just in case. There’s a f/f romance between the two main characters of this story. It’s slow burn enemies to lovers and I loved it.

I’m so sad that this series has ended, but this book was a great ending. It’s sort of Safire’s book, but it’s also so much more than that. It’s a story about pirates, thieves, gods and dragons. I’d also say it’s a story of belonging and surviving.

Thank you so much to Wunderkind PR for sending me THE SKY WEAVER to read and review! All thoughts and opinions are my own.

If I thought my emotions were all over the place after The Last Namsara and The Caged Queen then that was nothing compared to all the feels that The Sky Weaver has given me. The Sky Weaver had been hooked from page one and I stayed up way past my bed time to finish it. It is very rare that I can read a book in one

Safire is totally focussed on her job, protecting the Dragon King, and doing her part to save the country from starvation. Things are made more difficult when an annoying thief steals the jewel that was going to fund feeding a nation.

I confess that I have read the first book in the series, but haven't got round to the second yet (which follows Dax's story). Knowing Asha's story from The Last Namsara, it was easy to slip back

And so concludes the Iskari series. I have loved this fantasy series. Three stories which interconnect but feature three sets of separate main characters set against a colourful magical world of dragons, old tales and fearsome gods.

The Sky Weaver is Safire’s story. Throughout books one and two we readers have learnt only a little about Safire. Cousin to the king but never treated as an equal due to her mother’s low standing. Now she is King Dax’s Commander. When a thief steals a precious gem

I make no secret of the fact that the Iskari series has been pretty hit or miss for me. I enjoyed The Last Namsara, but I actually DNFed The Caged Queen. I was a little nervous going into The Sky Weaver, but I’m so happy I decided to give this series another chance.

The reason that I wanted to read this book is because I’ve really enjoyed

I've loved the Iskari series since I read the Last Namsara about 2 years ago. I can't believe we finally have the third and final book. The Sky Weaver introduces more about the mythology of the Star Isles and two new characters. Safire, the Commandant of Firgaard, wants to do what right for her country. Eris, a pirate and Deathdancer, has no qualms about cheating, lying or stealing. These two are certainly enemies, but might have to work together in order to save Asha, Safire's cousin.

Well, I've just finished my second read of this book, and can confirm the author has stolen my heart again. This is the third book in the Iskari series, and companion novel to The Last Namsara. I love the tale of Safire and Eris, the solider and the thief. This series will forever be a favorite of mine.

Second read on audiobook and the narrator is wonderful. Highly recommend!

The Sky Weaver is the third book set in The Last Namsara world by Kristen Ciccarelli. It’s a world full of magic, dragons, myths and legends. Stories of kings and queens, and everything in between. Safire is a soldier. Charged with protecting her king and keeping the peace in her unsettled world, she finds herself stuck with her polar opposite, the pirate Eris, when they set out on a quest to find Asha - the last Namsara.

This was absolutely the perfect way to end this trilogy.

When The Last Namsara came out I loved it, but to be honest I was a bit underwhelmed by The Caged Queen. I was a bit doubtful when I started reading The Sky Weaver but it turns out it is such a great story.

If you know the series, you know that whilst being all set in the same world and somehow

The Sky Weaver has to be my favorite of the Iskari books. Not only does it feature a f/f romance, it has my absolute favorite characters of the entire series Safire and a new clever thief Eris. This final book is gut wrenching, captivating, and action packed.

Wow, this was a perfect ending to a perfect series!

This book was amazingly written and well thought out. It was just the best conclusion to an amazing series. I have been waiting all year for this release and I can for sure, without a doubt, say that it was well worth the wait! I know that I will miss getting to read more about the characters, but I just love the way it ended and I can rest easy tonight knowing everyone in this amazing world is happy and okay!

These Violent Delights (Robin)
Well, this was a really great end to this companion trilogy. I enjoyed our "new" main characters. I've always enjoyed Safire from the previous books, so it was great to get her point of view.

I do have to admit that Asha, Torwin, & Kozu were my favorites still. I absolutely adore Asha, and I always will.

I liked how I didn't guess the major reveals until just before they were revealed. I enjoyed how this book kept things interesting, but still believable (not outrageous).

An amazing conclusion to a fantastic series, quite different from the first two books, just as thrilling and exciting, but the magic seemed to have stepped up a level. As always from Kristen great writing, wonderful characters and a great plot with lots of twists and turns, an absolutely wonderful end to the trilogy. I am so sad to see the series end, but so look forward to future books from Kristen.

It is official: this series is going in my forever favorites, alongside Harry Potter, The Infernal Devices and Narnia. This is the highest honor as I usually wait a while to be sure of it, but I’m sure. These books are so rich and deep and have so much wisdom to offer, and the writing is so amazing... all three books are standalones though and can be read in any order, though I think the original order is the most fun. But enough about the big picture, let’s focus on the Skyweaver.

It’s a fab universe full of great stories and dragons, and I really enjoyed how the sky weaver story wove throughout the main story, both for us and in universe. It was also great getting to see more of Asha.

Kor kneep zijn ogen tot spleetjes. 'En waarom zou die man mij iets kunnen schelen?'
Safire keek hem aan. 'Omdat ik degene ben die een mes in zijn hart heeft gestoken.”
“Ik wil haar in mijn hut.'
Safire verslikte zich bijna. Vol afgrijzen draaide ze zich met gebalde vuisten. 'Ik zit volgens mij liever in de cel.”
