This series may belong under 'children's book', but her words, and story, has captured me, and unlike others, Janice Hardy has really reach out to others, especially with the themes and motifs in her stories. I shall forever thank the day I found the first book, "The Shifter," and even as I grow older, the thrill and excitement that this series gives me, shall ever remain every time I read them. (:

Wow. I am down right SHOCKED that Janice Hardy hasnt achieved James Patterson level of fame (at least) these are the freaking best books EVER (other than Lightning Theif) if you like Witch and Wizard by James Patterson or Percey Jackson and the Olympian series MUST READ

I won't lie: I was a little bit wary going into it. I don't know if it's just my bad luck as a reader, or if there's a problem endemic to YA, but at least four trilogies I've read in recent years have ended with fizzles rather than bangs, even when the first two and a half books have been great. So I am pleased to report: it does not fizzle! After spending two and a half books building up how evil the Duke is, building to a war, and building up Nya's character, the conclusion shines where other books. uh, didn't so much. It probably isn't fair to do a one-to-one comparison, but without naming any names (ahem) there was a trilogy that concluded last year where an impoverished teenage girl's main goal was to save her little sister, and as she tried to accomplish that she became the symbol of a rebellion against an oppressive government. I bring this up because some of the pitfalls of that particular book are also elements in play in Darkfall, but here they turn out solidly. The stakes of the war are equally deadly here - terrible things happen, battles are lost, and people die. Some of it is even Nya's fault. But even when bad things are happening, Nya never checks out; and even when she's being used as a figurehead, she never loses her agency. She's the one who decides to play along with questionable leaders, even when things don't feel right, and then she has to deal with the consequences. In my review of Blue Fire (the middle book in the series), I mentioned that I had a hard time tracking what happened at the climaxes in the first two books. That was actually not the case in this one - there was a heck of a lot of action happening near the end, but I never lost track of what was going on with Nya's powers and the Duke's weapons. Aside from improving on what I found to be the previous book's main weakness, the conclusion maintained all of its strengths: the worldbuilding is great, Nya's voice is strong and she's fun to read about, and the story is compelling. The only tiny quibble I had was that I don't think we got to know one of the characters who died very well beforehand, so it didn't have quite the impact it should have. That's an extremely minor complaint, though. The book is a solid five cupcakes, leaving the series as a whole at four and a half.

I have not gotten this book yet, but I have the other two. This series is amazing and I can not wait to read this one. If you are looking for another amazing series to read, check out the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson.

I thought this book was amazing, her characters stuck to their personalities and the plot was carried through the entire way. I liked that Talia wasn't healed completely when she was found, that Janice Hardy let you know that not everything can be fixed perfectly right away.

Excellent conclusion to the Healing Wars series. All the pieces weave together well without feeling forced. Nya's actions ring true, especially when she's making mistakes and trying deal with people's adulation. The symmetry between her healing Danello and facing the Duke is a nice touch, and both Tali's and Aylin's reactions to their situations bring added depth. If anything, this third book is even more complex and action packed than the first two, making it a read I couldn't put down.
