A gripping conclusion to the trilogy, ‘Fall of Thrones and Thorns’ picks up where 'Riot of Storm and Smoke' left off, immediately after the exciting cliffhanger-reveal. Young barmaid Breena Perdit has come a long way from the cozy Bridge and Duchess Inn hidden away in small town Abeline. She has learned much about her ancestry and her ability to Wield/Throw her Element of water.
‘Fall’ begins on the shore of Nereidium as Bree, Prince Caden, and their companions escape the clutches of evil King Langdon of Egria. Whatever peace the group finds, it cannot last long as Shaker-created earthquakes pose a serious threat to the peaceful island. After time spent learning Nereidium history and customs, and learning more about themselves individually, Bree, Caden, and Aleta lead the group back to Egria, to secure the safety and future of both Egria and Nereidium.
This action-adventure tale is told from multiple perspectives, including Bree, Caden, and Aleta. The story remains clear to follow thanks to author Jennifer Ellision’s skilled writing. Feelings and relationships between characters are believable and feel real as they develop. As characters discover truths about themselves and grow internally, the progressions make sense and feel natural.
I highly recommend the ‘Threats of Sky and Sea’ series to any reader who enjoys magic, court intrigue, YA and fantasy. These page-turners are captivating and thoroughly enjoyable!
‘Fall of Thrones and Thorns’ will be available on September 27, 2016.
