The third volume of the Seven Realms series, it really felt like Chima finally has settled into the story of Han and Raisa. Han must finally face the moment we've all waited for - when he discovers his friend and love interest Rebecca is in fact the Princess Heir Raisa of the Queendom of the Fells. Overwhelmingly, though, this is Raisa's volume. Friction and violence increase as the people trying to keep Raisa out of the way increase their efforts. Will they succeed? Of course not. This is a fantasy series, and we all know the heroine and hero ultimately will prevail to win the day. Right? Maybe. Not everything will go to plan as Raisa returns home in this volume. The action and pace of the third volume are more consistent, giving the reader a solid return for their investment in the series. My biggest complaint, and perhaps this isn't fair since the principal character is a sixteen year old girl, is the complete inconsistency in her feelings towards the men in her life. Its difficult to tell who we should be rooting for as a love interest when Raisa herself changes gears every few pages, from mooning over Amon, to Nightwalker, to Micah and Han. If you've read the other two volumes of this series, then you deserve this volume. The first half of the book is fast paced (I read the first 300 pages in a day) and will keep you on your toes. The second half of the book slows down, right about the point we realize that we are being set up for the fourth book. Although I think this was the best volume of the series so far, I'm only going to give it four stars - my socks weren't blown off, just mildly uncurled at a few points. I would have liked more from Han, and found the one chapter from Amon's perspective both refreshing and unexpected since no other non Han/Raisa character ranked their own chapter.

I came upon this series by accident. I had seen the cover o the books and well, i judged it by the cover. I was still mourning the loss of the previous series i was reading coming to an end. This series/book really gipped me. I was enthralled by the way it just seemed to flow. I cant believe that this was as good as it is. After I read the first i couldnt stop myself from reading the second. The love problems really made it enticing, although trying to find out what genre it is was a little difficult. Its more like a reality show. Still a great book. It wasa refreshing change to have something out of the ordinary. I hope that she will continue writing these books. The third was great and left alot of questions, the perfect "cliff hanger". I am glad to have come upon a series that wasnt finished so that i may have something to look forward to. All in all, great book and series.

Again wonderful book! I love the suspense with the romance between characters. I finished all 3 books within weeks and am now eagerly waiting for the 4th book to come out.

This book was a great third instalment to the series, but it was still missing that "it" factor that makes a classic. In the last two books Ms. Chima roughly balanced the amount of chapters following the main characters, but in book three the female role dominated the majority of the book. It was refreshing reading the two chapters that followed different minor characters and it gave a creative touch to end this instalment. Unfourtuantly the plot in this book was way to transparent and baisically gave away the whole plot for the last book (save the subplots and maybe the ending). The third book didn't have much action and none leaving the reader on edge about the characters future. Most writers tend to keep the deaths of important characters for the last couple of books (in this case the very last). I hope Ms. Chima is not afraid of making her readers cry and finds her inner George R. R. Martin. I have high expectations for the last novel in the seven realms series and that it will be an action packed, tearjerking, unpredictable, and masterpeice of a finale!

I devoured all three books in this series, absolutely love them. I became so enveloped in the world of the seven realms, that I will have a difficult time adjusting to real life. The only problem is how much is left unresolved. I wish barnes and noble would make it easier to track down books within a series.

My love for this series explodes further with each book that I read. I loved the first two books, but this book far exceeds the illustriousness of the first two books. I am so completely in love with this series. The world building is as strong as ever. Everything from the first two books stands firm in this book and there are small added tidbits to expand upon those things. It really does feel like a drop in the water that ripples out. I am so impressed with it. The characters get so much more lovable in this book! OMG, I cannot express my love of the character growth for each of the main characters. Heck, even the not-so-main characters. The main characters have come such a long way from who they were at the start of the first book of this series. They are almost different people. I say almost because the core of what has always made them who they are are still there. They have just matured in different ways. They have gone through magical transformations. The writing of these characters is exceptional. I mean, for example, I never thought that I would feel sorry for one of the antagonists. The relationships that are forming are also a delight to experience. I love the friendships that are forming. The plot is so unbelievably good! I love how everything has built up from the previous books. There is so much tension and so much champing at the bit for what will happen next. I like how the plot is full of mystery and that there are pieces in place for things that we don't know about yet. I also like that the plot flows very seamlessly. There are no choppy plot points that seem out of place. I adore the romances in the book. Especially the romance between the main characters. I like that the main romance was a slow-building romance that is still powerful. The way that the two main characters came together was very natural and wasn't forced at all. It is a perfect slow burn romance that burns intensely. I can't wait to see how it plays out in the last book! Overall, this series is definitely one that I recommend! This series is perfect for fans of the Falling Kingdoms series by Morgan Rhodes or the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. It is high fantasy with a deep-rooted plot, memorable characters, and a vibrant magical world. You'll definitely want to put this series on your to-be-read list!

Continuing in the same manner leading up to this book, this series branches in intrigue and plot development. It keeps getting better. Everyone we have come to love in this series is struggling in some way, whether fighting for their lives or fighting for love and recognition. We really do not know who to trust just as the characters themselves. It is a great story and the characters are growing and maturing as they struggle with the challenges that afflict them. (I believe that people should be aware that there is a same sex relationship though very minor and glossed over, it is still there)  I am anxiously waiting for the next one to come from the library.

This is an amazing book. The author does a great job of developing the characters, and they feel so much more real than characters in other books. Also, the intricacy of the Seven Realms creates a memorable setting.
