Kiora needs answers. Who is the Shadow? Who is Jasmine? Are they connected? And even more pressing: how can she stop Shadow from using Kiora’s dreams as a map to find them? They have escaped three times, but are living on borrowed time—and everybody knows it.

Her search for help will push her closer to Alcander, send her to the dragon mountain of Toopai, and straight back to Meros—where magic will finally return to the land of no magic. Answers will be uncovered and plans unearthed that have been waiting for thousands of years.

But with the Shadow’s forces gathering, it looks like the land’s path is hurtling towards one outcome: war with the Shadow and death to all rebels. Armed with knowledge and hope, Kiora is determined to change that path. But will fate allow it? Or will it deal her a hard lesson about following ones own destiny?

What an outstanding ending to a really great series.  It's not too often that a series will earn an overall 5 star rating, but this one really blew it out of the park.  The big battle between Jasmine and Kiora is coming to a head and it's going to be a nasty one.  It's hard to even describe the build up because there was so much going on (in a great way).  

So far Kiora has managed to stay just ahead of Jasmine, but when Kiora realizes what Jasmine is really after she's not sure how to handle it at first.  A plan slowly comes together, but it will come at the cost of many lives - some that Kiora holds very dear and I hated to see lost.  Kiora's plans are brilliant, but come very close to falling apart several times.

Kiora's goal of uniting the various people and races is coming along nicely, too.  But old hatred and prejudice die hard and it is an uphill battle to get people to work together the way she needs them to for things to work.  I know I already said it, but this ending was beyond amazing.  I think this will be a re-read for me because I already want to go back and visit all my characters.

  1. I love it when a series you've enjoyed ends on such a great note! I've avoided reading the end of the Divergent series bc I fear I'll hate it as so many apparently do haha. Great review, Jasmyn!
