I am really disappointed. This felt like another filler book. It was good but it could’ve been better. I guess I was looking forward to the final book.
Here is the Goodreads Blurb:
It was supposed to be the final battle, the one to end Edmund’s line, his life, and free the magic Edmund had taken from the world. That was how it was foreseen. The end of the battle that has raged for centuries, unbeknownst to the mortals around them, the battle that would end with Joclyn’s death.
But it did neither.
The battle still reigns, Joclyn still lives, and the sight that was given eight hundred years ago is broken.
And it’s not the only one.
Sights that were once thought infallible have become nothing more than scattered glass, with broken pieces shattering into incorrect visages. Sain clings to the magic that he knows to be true, but there is something else, something that he is not saying. And what he does say is no longer adding up.
Something is wrong.
Ilyan and his people move through the caves, following a sight they hope to be correct, fleeing a battle that should have been the end while the battle within each of them grows with each step.
Ryland fights the monsters his father has infected him with.
Wynifred fights the confusion of who she is.
Dramin fights to live.
Prague may not survive this battle, it may be ripped to shreds… or burned to ashes.
The characters were good. All of the Imdalind books have great strong characters.
Worldbuilding is great. Strong and detailed. I never get lost or confused about a scene. There is plenty of detail but not to much that you are overwhelmed. It’s perfect.
Honestly I skimmed a heap. It wasn’t like I didn’t like it but there was to much repeating. Like many other people I think this book wasn’t needed. It might’ve been better this book was threaded in with the last book. Just like Scorched Treachery could’ve been bringing the total series total to 4.
