Overview

GODS. I'M AN IDIOT.
Without Griffin-and apparently a few meddling Gods-to push me along, I'd still be telling fortunes at the circus, lying about my past, ignoring my future, and living as far away from my tyrant mother as humanly possible.
True understanding thuds into place. Hope isn't just an abstract concept; it's me.
Flesh and blood me. Griffin knew it all along. Probably everyone did. I'm an idea in human form.
I have the power of the Gods at my fingertips.
The only thing ever stopping me has been me.

★ 11/13/2017
Bouchet’s relentlessly intense conclusion to her Kingmaker Chronicles trilogy (after A Breath of Fire) goes unabashedly big with a plot involving the fate of the world of Thalyria and the direct involvement of the Greek pantheon, but its best moments deal with one-on-one conflict. Fans will swoon for the escalation of mutual devotion between Catalia—a powerful Magoi of the bloodline of Titans and Olympians, central to “a Power Bid that could reunite the realms,” and now also “the personification and spirit of hope”—and “domineering... overprotective... and deliciously jealous” warlord Griffin. Their romance justifies the divine orchestration of their match and amplifies their possessiveness-fueled sexual heat. Family is a primary theme: Griffin’s army’s importance wanes as Cat’s sadistic mother rises as a formidable enemy, using mind control and psychological torture as her most powerful tools, and Griffin’s protectiveness surges as Cat’s pregnancy with “Little Bean,” their already-powerful daughter, increases the risk of personal loss. A notable lack of practical governing detail may frustrate fans of fantasy politics, but Bouchet’s series ends strongly with a hopeful vision of leadership balanced with divinity and humanity. (Jan.)

Cat and Griffin continue their divinely orchestrated odyssey to unite the three realms of Thalyria through tragic losses and dangerous obstacles.Having pledged her heart, body, and soul, as well as every magical and material weapon at her disposal, to her husband, Griffin, Cat is pleased with their progress in overthrowing the violent, capricious, and self-interested governance of the magic class in the three regions of Thalyria. "He took Sinta with an army….Then we took over Tarva together, with our own blood, sweat, and agony." Now they are turning their sights on Fisa, Cat's own homeland, ruled by her vicious, power-hungry mother. Griffin and Cat lost a cherished ally in their battle for Tarva, and they'll lose two more before they can march on Fisa, sending Cat into a tailspin of emotions that lands her in Tartarus, the misty valley that houses doomed souls like Prometheus and Tantalus. Cat has a lot to live for: she's carrying her first child, she loves her husband and her new family, she's the embodiment of hope for the people of Thalyria. But first she must save herself from the harrowing prison ostensibly designed to last forever, and in order to do that, she has to embrace her magic and step into the full glory of who she is, learning to forgive herself and to believe she is worthy of everything good she has wrought. Then she must confront her mother with all the magic, strength, self-possession, and compassion she has learned along the way and step fully into her destiny as the queen of a united Thalyria, with King Griffin by her side.Bouchet's stunning Kingmaker Chronicles trilogy ends the way it began, with creativity, brilliance, and a breathtaking balance of heart-pounding adventure and heart-wrenching emotion.
