War, the final book in the True Reign Series, is so incredible I could not put it down.  It was everything I wanted and more.  I was one of the lucky few to read it early, and since my first look at it, I’ve read it at least 5 times.  And I’m still ready for more!  (Looking forward to reading it again today!)  War left little more to be desired as author Jennifer Anne Davis expertly crafted and concluded the trilogy.  If you’d let me, I’d rave all day about it, but then I might spoil something, and we wouldn’t want that.  Let me say this.  It’s always scary to reach the end of a series, especially one you really like, because you’re afraid the book won’t meet all your expectations.  Well, War definitely does (or should, at least.  If you expect everyone to turn into unicorns, you’ll be sorely disappointed.  However, if you expect an exciting adventure and battle to win the kingdom and Rema’s birthright, you will not be.  – That’s not a spoiler, right?  The book’s called War, right?)War is one of those books that pulls you in and makes you wish you could protect your favorite characters from peril.  After reading The Key and Red, I’m sure you have those favorite characters. Well, get ready to try to protect them.  I can’t say whether or not you will succeed.  I can say, however, that you will feel every minute of it.  You will be wrapped up as tightly in the adventure as our heroes and heroines.  War is everything a book (especially a conclusion to a series) should be.  It is exciting, adventurous, mysterious, and has a great ending.  It will keep you guessing at your favorite characters’ fate(s) and keep you reading more.  It is a must read that will not disappoint.  It will, perhaps, leave you with a hangover, though, so read with caution.  Oh, who am I kidding?  Throw caution to the wind and enjoy!

A great ending to the series. If you loved The Key and Red, you will thoroughly enjoy War.

What a wonderful ending to a heart stopping adventure.  I love the descriptions of the Emperion castle and all the little details that really make Rema realize that this is her destiny.  Their were parts that made me cry but with a book called War their bound to be that.  I love how we got more background on each of the characters that we gotten to know over the course of this series.  Thanks for a great adventure Jennifer.

WAR is the final installment into the True Reign Trilogy. If you haven't read the first two I highly recommend doing so otherwise you will be lost. I'm sorry to see this series come to an end but the story was amazing and WAR was a very fitting end to a great trilogy. This has honestly been my favorite fantasy series since Harry Potter. I would highly recommend this series to anyone and everyone.

I was gifted a copy of this book for an honest review Jennifer Anne Davis nailed this book! I have been looking forward to this book since I finished the last page of Red. Darmik and Rema are amazingly strong characters. War picks up right where Red left off. The author takes us on a journey to Emperion. And what an adventure she took us on. I was glued to my kindle! It was the perfect conclusion to an amazing series. I want more of them. I never what them to end!

Can I only give 5 stars?? Wow, what a way to end The True Reign Series! When Rema is crowned queen, she and Darmik join forces with the rebel army and fight for the freedom of her people. This intense conclusion follows their journey to Emperion and back to Greenwood Island. This book has it all....romance, adventure and suspense. Jennifer Anne Davis did a remarkable job with this whole series and it has been a delight to read. I recommend it highly.

I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This book irritated me for many reasons. But, it was a solid ending to this series with just enough closure, loss, and happiness. It was fairly fast paced, but it didn't have that intensity that finales usually have. I think that's because a majority of this book was the exact same as the other books in the series. IT WAS ABOUT EVERYONE TRYING TO SAVE REMA BECAUSE SHE GOT HERSELF IN A FREAKING PICKLE. AGAIN. Yes. Rema annoyed the heck out of me because in my opinion, she was just not a strong main character at all. She's always in these positions where she needs other people to save her. Not only that, but she never showed the strength or intelligence needed to run a kingdom. Sure, she could "handle a sword," but there is so much more to being a queen than having one lesson of throwing daggers and being nice to everyone. So the fact that Rema never proved she was worth saving to me (the reader), but was constantly getting saved because she was "THE CHOSEN ONE" truly made me lose all respect for her. I also thought the other characters, plot, and world were over-simplified and not well thought out. Why is it that the commoners of a desert country have blonde hair and blue eyes? That literally makes no scientific sense. And with the characters, we were given these complex ideas of people in the second book, only to have them become flat characters in the third book. It was like these characters were made solely to save Rema and that's it. They literally have no past and no future other than REMA. The world felt very under-developed, even when we were finally introduced to Emperion in this novel. It was pretty much said that Emperion was awful and animalistic and Rema was the peace they needed. No. It shouldn't be that simple. These citizens are now bred for war after generations of living like this. They should not just follow this new queen without any question. There is a reason, a culture, and a huge background that we are missing. This entire series was not very special and didn't throw any big curve balls. It was predictable and cliche with this final book being no exception. Each book followed the "must save Rema" storyline, but in a different situation. We weren't shown new conflicts such as HOW THE HECK IS REMA GOING TO RUN A EMPIRE WHEN SHE IS LITERALLY JUST A SHELTERED TEENAGER WHO KNOWS NOTHING (NOTHING) ABOUT THE WORLD?! That thought was just constantly going through my mind while reading all of these books. The romance was built mostly in the first book because it's basically insta-attraction so the characters are already in love in this book. There was some unnecessary parts and drama such as when they were in the middle of a war and wanted to talk about their romance. (Katniss and Peeta?) It didn't happen that much, but that's not the part that annoyed me the most. The love triangle of adding in Savenek was unnecessary. Yes, it did cause him to do great things in the end, but that came at the cost of the integrity of him as a character. His whole personality did a complete 180 because of Rema.

3/5 Stars I was sent a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. ***** SPOILERS***** After finishing the second book in this series, Red, I began this book with lower expectations. Despite my low expectation, I did thoroughly enjoy this book. Though war was a solid conclusion to the series, I felt like there could have been so much more that was expanded on to make this book even better such as the world building and the character development. As for the world building, we are told that there are vast differences between the kingdoms but are hardly shown them. I felt like that visual aspect was something that was lacking in the series overall, and is something would have loved to see in this fantasy series. As for the character development, the characters, by the end of the book, did not change very much, if any over the series. I would have loved to see more character development for the main cast of characters – but especially Rema and Darmik. Darmik went through extensive character development in the first book, learning to step aside from his father and brother’s unethical reign and take a stand for what he believes in, defying all he grew up believing. In the second and third books, however, he is belittled to a mere love interest, whose only goals and desires are to protect and love Rema. Because he was a prince and had control over his father’s armies, he could have had weight in persuading others to support the rebels and Rema, as well as helping to over throw his father and advance things politically, and I was disappointed that he did not fulfill any other roles, making his character seem somewhat one dimensional. Because Rema began to become a more complex character in Red, training both physically and mentally for the upcoming challenges, I expected her to stray away from her naïve mindset and become more queenly and prepared to rule. However, she did not change in that aspect and it made me question her ability to rule. For example, when she was on the ship with the assassin and finally had the opportunity to ask an important question, she is quickly distracted by the sight of dolphins and forgets the question. As for Savenek, I was never a fan of the love triangle between him, Rema, and Darmik since the second book, and his fate really solidified my dislike of the love triangle in this novel. I feel like his storyline could have been so much more powerful if he and Rema overcame their differences and became strictly friends, which would also further develop their characters. Instead, when he died, as a reader I felt a sort of indifference towards him. Despite my issues with this book, I did enjoy the book overall. I loved how fun and fast paced it was, and how it was a solid conclusion to the series.

I adore this Trilogy! Just the right amount of everything that a reader wants and needs. The only negative thing I have to say is that some parts seem rushed. But, I am still giving this book a 5 Star rating! Always hate when a series comes to an end (unless there is another book I don't know about).

This the third book in the series. The first two books in the series, The Key and Red, were great reads and the third was just as great. I will read more from this author.

(I will jump around a lot.) <br> War Between Worlds <p> Finally. They were finally big enough and strong enough to fight back. For thousands of years, they had been training. For revenge. The age of the dragon was coming. <p> Rubi, the supreme leader, was sending troups out. Alicifer, a green and red dragon with giant wings, was sent to attack a human village called 'New York City', or as dragons called it, 'City of the New Yorks'. <p> She flew straight into a giant tower, knocking the top off. <p> Meanwhile... <p> Susan flipped to the news station. <p> Newslady: "The New York trade station is being destroyed!" <br> Background: through a window, a gold dragon breaks a window. It roared and a giant fire filled the camera. <p> Reporterguy: "Alice? Alice? Alice!?" <br> Background: camera comes back on to a scorched body and cracked screen, screams of terror outside the building. At least twelve more dragons came in and the scene was cut to comercial. <p> Susan was speechless as she stared out her window. She ran for the door, but her house was frozen solid. <p> Dragon Base Camp <p> A tornado of dragons were constantly swarming in and out of a small cave on Mt. Everest, roaring. <br> Inside, the mountain had been completely hollowed out, supported by dragon-built iron poles. The hive also went a mile underground, and five miles in all directions. They gathered at the center, where a giant dragon sat. She was not only the biggest, but the most beautiful, most powerful, dragon in all the world. <p> Millions of eggs lay in a giant containment unit under her, dozens arriving by the second. <br> Dragonets hatched, bonded with the nearest female (besides the queen), and followed her for the rest of their life. Once that female di<_>ed, they would do any orders the queen told them to. <p> (I am completely out of characters. Applications needed! For all continents, countries, cities. We also need dragons, but i have no trouble making dragon characters. Please don't have a 'does' for your character. We need presidents and that kind of stuff as well. I need a name for a little russian boy. I only know russian names for girls. Please make one male character and one female character.)

Slow paced and obvious. Author could have fit story into two books. It was a battle to finish reading.

I'm so happy that I read the True Riegn Series. Prince Savenek? I thought they were gonna name him after her dad or something. I'm glad that she's living in the origanal castle. I wouldn't be able to stand living in the same place as Barjon and Lennek. This series was awesome and it will always be apart of me. Well, maybe I'm over exagerating a bit. But tje books will stay with me as long as I remember them. I think that this is the best book in the trilogy. I recommend the trilogy for peope twelve and over. This is the last book in the trilogy. The order is The Key, Red and War. If you have yet to read the other books and want to read this one I stongly sugest that you read The Key first. Happy Reading!!!

I have followed and read the True Reign Series since The Key came out.  The entire series have had twists and turns, sub plots and lots of cliffhangers.  The Key and Red were both 5 star reviews. War... The title is fitting because for Queen Rema to succeed she needs to war against the emperor Hamem in Emperion and King Barjon and Prince Lennek on Greenwood Island.  Love is always there between Rema and Darmik.  Even though Rema and Darmink have to deal with tragedies and revelations, they remain strong and faithful to each other.  With the whole story of the takeover and the discovery of the Princess Amer from book one, the love story between those two has just been amazing.    Right in the middle of the book Jennifer Anne Davis dropped a bombshell that I never expected.  I was just shocked when I read it.  I never saw that scene coming. I do not want to give anything of War away to the reader.  This is just a must read series!  The book ends in another cliffhanger that I am hoping Mrs. Davis will continue it on.  There is such a sweetness to the last chapter that brought tears to my eyes.   But even though it has a slight cliffhanger the epilogue does tie up the book.   Rema, Darmik, Neco, Ellie, Savenek and Mako are amazing and well written characters.  Even the lesser characters are very well written.  They each have their own part of the story.  I am sad that series has ended but looking forward to anymore that Jennifer Anne Davis releases in the future. Once I started reading War I could not put it down.  I was begging my oldest child and husband to help with my little ones.  This is worth more then 5 stars!

This series ended the best way possible. The amount of action in this book lived up to the title - War!
