Fall of Thrones and Thorns
(Threats of Sky and Sea #3)
Publication date: September 27th 2016
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult
War hurtles in, a typhoon over the sea.
After Bree’s life was torn apart, Nereidium had represented a haven to her. A place that—if she could save it—was beyond the King’s reach.
And, at last, she’s arrived upon its shores. But things in Nereidium are not what they should be.
The land is plagued by a rash of mysterious earthquakes, the likes of which it’s never known. The governors are distracted by old traditions, while Bree and her friends grapple with changing identities and the sense that the longer they wait to take action… the greater the danger from Egria grows.
Bree is tired of living under the shadow of King Langdon’s power. And she’s tired of waiting for him to be the first to act.
In this final chapter of the Threats of Sky and Sea series, it all comes down to Nereidium or Egria. To Bree or the King. It’s kill… or be killed.
And not everyone will escape the battle unscathed.
We have more of the beautiful prose and sweeping scenery we’ve come to expect from the first two novels, although this last one slows things down a bit for a good deal of the first half of the book.
As with any final book in a trilogy, some people will be happy with the ending and others will be disappointed. I thought the one we were given made the most sense overall, even if the journey to reach the end wasn’t quite as exciting as it was in the first two installments.
I believe that the main issues is that with this being the final book, there’s no sense of urgency. We’re missing a lot of the tension and suspense which made the first two books so memorable.
That being said, this is still a book I’d recommend reading, especially if you’re reading the series- I mean you can’t exactly get to the end of book 2 and want to stop, trust me.
If there were a bit more excitement and a bit less convoluted ways of reaching the climax, I would have been in love with this book. IF you’re a fan of fantasy and adventure and swoons, you’ll want to pick up this series. And if you like to binge read- you’re in luck since all three books are available 🙂
3.5 stars and my sincere thanks to the author and tour host for the review opportunity.
Jennifer Ellision was born and raised in South Florida and lives in perpetual fear of temperatures below 60F. She spent a great deal of her childhood staying up past her bedtime with a book and a flashlight. When she couldn’t find the stories she wanted to read, she started writing them. She has an OTP, loves character analysis, and is a master of the fangirl flail, with a particular soft spot for fanfiction. She frequently bursts into song (and they are often of a Disney persuasion). Sailor Moon is one of her favorite things on this planet.
Threats of Sky and Sea is her first novel.
She also blogs at The Bevy Bibliotheque, where she talks about books, TV, movies, and other things that she goes fangirl over. For review requests or blog inquiries, please visit http://www.thebevybibliotheque.net to contact the blogger who best suits your request.
