This may have been a young adult series, but this old adult loved it.

Perfect ending for this series!

All the elements were there as in the two previous books, but somehow this book didn't not ignite the same spark. The book seemed to drown in the repetitious thoughts going through Aileana's head. It seemed to take away from the actions going on outside of it. There were some battles and fighting which should have stood out as remarkable but as I stated before Aileana's thoughts overwhelmed. Sometimes it is, what it is. I loved the ending, but overall, was kind of disappointed in the final book of The Falconer Series.

Original Review Link: I LOVED the second book in this series and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this one. The story picks up right where we left off in The Vanishing Throne. Aileana wakes up with no memory of who she is and with powers she doesn’t understand. Powers she knows are not human. Her only hope in surviving is finding an ancient book guarded by the cruel and powerful Morrigan. With time running out for both her and her world, she’s going to need to harness the powers that are slowly killing her and face he unimaginable. Ok. So I’m going to be honest. I had absolutely no idea what happened in the vanishing throne. I mean, I remember the huge points, but when I started reading this, I was like “Wait. What?” I had to call my trusty friend Jenn and be like…..”Soooo what happened again?” I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. There needs to be more sites with just plot recaps. Sometimes you just don’t have the time to reread an entire series! Once I was caught up on the general idea, I got right into it. You can’t help but do just that with this book. The action literally picks up right where the last one left off and you are thrown into the fray with Aileana and her friends. I was a bit concerned about the memory thing at first cause that kind of annoys me with books. Especially when it happens well into a series. I find like I’m just waiting around for the main character to catch up with everything and meanwhile, I’m like “Let’s go people!” Luckily, you’re not kept waiting too long. The action moves rather quickly. You’re thrust into what’s been happening since Aileana has been gone and you pretty much go along for the ride. You see all the familiar characters from the previous novels, but I have to say I think I really liked Sorcha in this one. You’re given a lot more of her backstory and it makes you understand why she is the way she is. Those plot points were my favorite part of the narrative. In terms of the story arch, I found it a bit predictable with the conclusion. I mean, how else was it going to go?? None the less, it was still a great ending to a great story (with some heart wrenching moments thrown in for fun). I still think the second installment is my favorite of the series, but I loved the overall journey of these characters. It was great Fae inspired tale with an original spin that takes the Faery legends and makes it is own. If you’re looking for an action packed Faery story that gives a nod to the original legends, this series is it!

***Review posted on The Eater of Books! blog*** The Fallen Kingdom by Elizabeth May Book Three of The Falconer trilogy Publisher: Chronicle Books Publication Date: June 13, 2017 Rating: 4 stars Source: eARC from NetGalley Summary (from Goodreads): The long-awaited final book in the Falconer trilogy is an imaginative tour-de-force that will thrill fans of the series. Aileana Kameron, resurrected by ancient fae magic, returns to the world she once knew with no memory of her past and with dangerous powers she struggles to control. Desperate to break the curse that pits two factions of the fae against each other in a struggle that will decide the fate of the human and fae worlds, her only hope is hidden in an ancient book guarded by the legendary Morrigan, a faery of immense power and cruelty. To save the world and the people she loves, Aileana must learn to harness her dark new powers even as they are slowly destroying her. Packed with immersive detail, action, romance, and fae lore, and publishing simultaneously in the UK, The Fallen Kingdom brings the Falconer's story to an epic and unforgettable conclusion. What I Liked: Oh my heart. This book took me through just about every emotion I could go through, while reading a book. Of the three books in this series, this one is the darkest, the most heartbreaking, but also the one that ends the best. Elizabeth May did this series justice with this conclusion novel, and with the perfect ending that was just the right amount of sad and swoony. This book begins with Aileana literally clawing her way out of the ground and finding herself in a dark forest. She has no idea who she is, where she is, or how she came about the immense power simmering beneath her skin. After killing an Unseelie faerie, an old friend senses her power and finds her - Derrik. Slowly she begins remembering who she is. When Derrick takes her back to what remains of the human lands, Aileana gets her memory back fully, with the help of Aithinne. It has been two months, and time has not been a friend. The lines have been drawn - Unseelie vs. Seelie, Kadamach vs. Aithinne. Aileana must stop Kadamach from killing Aithinne, but there are bigger problems; there is a book hidden in dark depths that may hold the key to stopping the war altogether, and preventing the necessity of either Kadamach or Aithinne killing each other and the survivor taking the dark throne. Finding this book requires one of Aileana's greatest enemies, and a sacrifice so painful she may not be able to survive the aftermath. But the end of the world is bigger than Aileana, and she won't hold back in trying to protect those she loves, and what's left of the world. This book was nonstop action from the start, which was great for me. I'm usually terrified of conclusion novels and it takes me forever to pick one up and read it, so I'm grateful to Elizabeth May for starting this book off with a bang and keeping the action at a high pace (though not in an overwhelming way). The stakes are incredibly high in this book, and there is no time to waste. I've always adored Aileana, in The Falconer and The Vanishing Throne, and this didn't change in this final novel. She is a tough lady and a strong fighter, and she is more ruthless in this book... Read the rest of my review on my blog, The Eater of Books! - eaterofbooks DOT blogspot DOT com :)

The Fallen Kingdom was the ending of a unique and fun series. After the first two books, I wasn't sure what to expect in this one. I ended up laughing at times and crying at others (you'll know the part I'm talking about when you reach it). However, while it was a wild rollercoaster and I loved it, it didn't quite have the magic of the first two for me, which is why I'm giving it four stars. The steampunk aspect has pretty much disappeared in this one, which is a pity because I loved how it was woven into the first book. Additionally, this book doesn't spend too much time in Scotland (which was understandable given the storyline but I still missed it). This one is about Aileana coming to terms with what happened at the end of book two and attempting to figure out a way to survive. While there is still a focus on saving the world, it is somewhat pushed into the background by the story of figuring out how to save Aileana. The plot delves further into the Seelie/Unseelie courts and their history. While I liked finding out more about certain things, the journey to find the book dragged on a bit too much for me. The tension that kept me riveted throughout the first book was diminished a little in this one. Additionally, after the reveal in book two regarding Kiaran, I expected him to be a bit darker in this book (okay, I was really hoping that he would fall prey to the dark side). Overall, this book was an intriguing end to the series. While I didn't enjoy this one quite as much as the previous two, I would definitely still recommend the series. I think my expectations and hopes for the third book may have clashed with what it ended up being, which led to me not enjoying this final installment quite as much. However, the series as a whole was fun, unique, and extremely entertaining. I truly fell in love with the characters and loved seeing how their story unfolded. Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

After the ending of book 2, I was thrilled to be able to start this immediately. And it definitely didn't disappoint. Aileana is still amazing. Kiaran is still brooding {and swoony af}. Aithinne and Derrick are still delightful and seriously some the best parts of the story. This plot line is full of emotions. I laughed and had my heartbroken all within a small span of pages. Over and over and over again. It was the most delicious torture. The lead up to the finale was satisfying. There is one thing that happened that I was outraged over and I don't feel that it was clearly addressed in the last pages. Overall, this series has been absolutely phenomenal. I am so happy I was able to binge it. **Huge thanks to Chronicle Books and NetGalley for providing the arc free of charge**
