This was perfection!
The long-imprisoned jinn are on the attack, wreaking bloody havoc in villages and cities alike. But for the Nightbringer, vengeance on his human foes is just the beginning.
Laia we can definitely see how far she has come in this final instalment to the series. She is resolute and unwavering in her purpose and has grown so much from the timid girl pretending to be a slave to the Commandant. She still makes some decisions that I find questionable but within her scope of reasoning so it didn’t annoy me as much as it would of otherwise. She has been through a lot and I am very satisfied with the way her character arc played out.
Elias has always been one of my favourite characters in this world. His broodiness, his want to rebel from his mother and not be a mindless mask forced to kill with no remorse. He has put me through the ringer throughout the course of this series and has frustrated me to no end, I still can’t help but love him. Seeing his journey to find his empathy and bring back his emotions to try and help end the war as the Soul Catcher was a struggle and I wanted to throttle him at times, but it made the pay off worth it so much more.
Helene was amazing in this book. Again super frustrating her not wanting to give in to her feelings for Harper and actually cultivate a relationship with him when everyone around them could see they were meant for each other. The build up of tension between them and the eventual pay off was well worth it though! Helene I have to say I wasn’t really all that interested in before this book but she really came to the forefront and shined. I was very much invested in her storyline and I was not disappointed!
There is so much going on in this book right from the start. It has been a few months since I reread the previous books in this series so there were a few characters that I didn’t recognise at first but as the story continued I was able to regain my bearings and enjoy all of the action. I liked the fact that everyone is separated for the majority of the book and eventually find their way back together just in time. It wasn’t the fairy tale ending I was expecting where everything just magically works out, we definitely loose a lot of characters I wasn’t expecting but we gained a few as well so I was left feeling very content!
⭐️5/5 All the feels!!
