Routed from her glacial palace in the frozen North, Salamasca has fled to the Eastern Kingdoms to lick her wounds and gather her strength once more. Illyander is recovering from the Empress of Ice’s rampage and slowly Snowhaven has been rebuilt. But while the Ice Queen lives, she is a threat to all who walk Aronshae.

I was curious how the story would conclude given how elements of it were so often discussed, notably the sacrifice of the twins. That the authors took it where they did was both satisfying and believable based on the world created. The number of loose ends to finish almost overwhelmed the story, but they were done without needless expansion. The dragons, if possible, almost served as a supporting role, though one that was perfect for what had to happen. Truly a fun and entertaining read, with deaths unfortunate and sad, and success inevitable but couched in the difficulty of a fully realized world.
Riveting ReadThis the third book in the series has completed the first two books wonderfully! I was unable to stop reading and became totally enmeshed in the story. I would highly recommend this book along with the first two books of this series for an amazing story which you will be lost completely in.
A fantastic way to finish a great series. After the ending of the second book, I wasn't sure what to expect for the conclusion of this adventure. Travelling to the previously unseen Eastern Kingdom, our heroes finally confront the Queen of Ice in what will be their deadliest confrontation. Even at the cost of their lives, the heroes will stop her campaign of terror or die trying. Wonderful storytelling, awesome characters, and action a plenty, this book is a great read from cover to cover. If you haven't read the first two entries in the series, I highly recommend it.
OathboundI enjoyed this trilogy despite the multiple points of view that happened without rhyme or reason. More chapters or segments would've helped along with better editing in all three books. Have your tissues ready as you read this one. The authors did a great job making you feel for Sasha, Katya and Jared in the story.
