I dived into this book right after it came. To tell you too much would give away spoilers, and I don’t want to do that. So, I’ll keep this short.
The characters come alive off the page in this amazing breathtaking conclusion to the Heart of Dread series. I really, really, hope that these two authors decided to do more work together because this was just a hit out of the park. I read this in less than a few hours. And well, I really can't wait to pick them all up again and read them in the years to come.
If you love fantasy with a dystopian theme then pick this one up. It has amazing characters and a fast paced story/plot. This is a MUST READ!
The action-packed finale to the series Entertainment Weekly calls, "part epic fantasy and part social commentary . . . addictive."
In this epic conclusion to the Heart of Dread trilogy, Nat and Wes go on a journey to find the Rift, save the source of magic and defeat the Drau, the pirates, and the RSA—but at a great sacrifice. Wes is dying, and as he's rotting, the Drau will let the rot "cleanse" the source of magic, dooming Wes forever. Nat and Wes discover that the source of the magic lies in the Drakon—the key to the Blue, the protector, the soul of the world. But in order to close the Rift, a great sacrifice is needed. Nat must decide to sacrifice her beloved drakon in order to save the world, and to save Wes. In the words of the sylphs, death is life, and now the worlds can be reborn again.
