(A quick housekeeping bit – with the INSPYs in full force and my desire to stay sane, I’ll be changing my posting schedule to three times a week for the next couple of months – and maybe even May. I know this will have zero effect on the lives of any and everyone reading this :), but still wanted to give a heads up!

Well friends, we’ve been waiting for this conclusion from the fabulous Mary Weber and guess what? This book did not disappoint in the least! So let’s dive right in!
“The realization hits: We’re not going to win. It’s why I couldn’t defeat Draewulf in Bron—because this power was never mine anyway. I drop my arms and let the energy die off. And turn around to Face Eogan.”
After a fierce battle with Draewulf, Nym barely escaped with her life. Now, fleeing the scorched landscape of Tulla, her storm-summoning abilities are returning; only . . . the dark power is still inside her.
Broken and bloodied, Nym needs time to recover, but when the full scope of the shapeshifter’s horrific plot is revealed, the strong-willed Elemental must race across the Hidden Lands and warn the other kingdoms before Draewulf ’s final attack.
From the crystalline palaces of Cashlin to the legendary Valley of Origin, Nym scrambles to gather an army. But even if she can, will she be able to uncover the secret to defeating Draewulf that has eluded her people for generations? With a legion of monsters approaching, and the Hidden Lands standing on the brink of destruction, the stage is set for a battle that will decide the fate of the world.
This time, will the Siren’s Song have the power to save it?
Don’t you just love truly satisfying conclusions to trilogies? That’s exactly what Mary Weber has given us! An action-packed read from start to finish, with the characters we love and those we, well don’t, this was entertaining and fun to read. I really liked all our characters went through and the sacrifices made. I appreciated the honest struggles Nym, Eogan, Myles and so many others Weber reveals and takes us through (Also, I heart little Kel). Not only does this make the characters relatable, but makes for some dramatic reading.
I’m a fan of Nym – her commentary often made me chuckle and I love the heart she has. Also, I just have to say there was one part (of course won’t give the specifics) where Nym did something so awesome (like she dropped the mic) and I absolutely loved her for it. (If you’ve read it, let’s have a conversation and I’ll tell you which part!). For fans of the series, I think you’ll love the conclusion and if you haven’t had a chance to read this series and love fantasy, well, what are you waiting for?!
What’s a trilogy you recently finished?
