    I held the first two books in this series in high regard I have to admit the final book fell markedly from the standard of its predecessors and I was pretty dissatisfied with it after being so invested in the story and charactersBetween fight scenes the plot dragged through inner monologues that reprocess the characters' same woes ad nauseum and repetitive arguments between characters that never progress toward any resolution vi

    This book had the audacity to have 'Some things are beyond mending' as the tagline and then spend nearly 500 pages proving that sent

    Final book in a trilogy I uite enjoyed this series While the first half of the book had a bit of a compressed feel the last hundred and fifty pages were awesome The kind of climax I like with lots of characters in jeopardy and twist

    I would say the author discovered polygamy between writing books 2 and 3 and went all in like a teenage girl discovering her first subculture but she threw in a few throwaway sentences about it in the earlier books Still it seems like Spurrie

    This review is informed by having finished all the series but I'll just repeat the review in each oneOverall I'm glad to have read to the end of the third book I thought the story was worthwhile and well done the character development definitely improved over the series and the magic system was pretty original I would really like to read a series set later in time that explored the magic a lot Warning for spoilers ahead CharactersSierra

Some things are broken beyond mending Grievously wounded in battle Isidro's life hangs in the balance but the only person who can help him is the man he can never trust Sierra is desperate to rebuild shattere Wow I finally finished the series I thinkI mean with that ending are we getting a spin off Coz I could totally go a spin offThis series is really tricky to rate I loved it and enjoyed every moment of reading it but I don t really know what happenedWARNING The following review contains spoilers for the previous two books in the seriesHere s what I liked The characters The magic The way it cut out all the boring trekking etc UnpredictableHere s what I didn t like Hard to keep track of what s happening DelphineI mean this was definitely all about the characters for me I fell instantly in love with Sierra and Isidro in the first book but Rasten captured my heart in book 2 and he was definitely my fave here He has such an interesting story and I loved that he was so physically powerful yet so mentally broken Isidro starts this book clinging to life precariously so my heart was aching for him as well and he also has really interesting development The relationship between him and Sierra is all messed up and she s vouching for Rasten which adds a lot of tension to this novel For me the best part of this book and the entire series was seeing what these characters go through how they deal with it and how they find the strength to keep pressing on Delphine is someone I could have done without though I mean she played her part in book 2 but is it really necessary to try to integrate her She felt like such an outsider in this book and while that makes me feel for her it also meant I felt awkward every time she was involved in the actionThe actual journey back to the homeland was a bit confusing I never really understood what their goal was how they d ended up where they were and what the point was to anything they were doing That could be because I forgot so much of what had happened in the previous books but I think it s also because the story works hard to cut out all of the long arduous treks and political conflicts that it ends up missing important information I suppose the world building was a little weaker than I d have liked but to be honest I didn t really care about why they were doing what they were doing as long as the characters were doing interesting thingsI do feel that the atmosphere was utilised uite well though the first book is all cold harsh winter whereas with this last installment you do get the sense that the land is beginning to thaw and the snow beginning to melt Although apparently that s not the case at all back in their homelandThe magic system was totally badass though I love how prominent the violence was Like sure these are some hardcore mages we re dealing with but they pay a steep cost It s pain blood and sacrifice and it just added this element of rawness that made it so much interesting to me It was also interesting how they all kinda had their own signature to their magic Very coolFinally here s some spoiler thoughtsview spoiler I d forgotten that the clans are all for polygamy so I was trying to work out how Issey would go about choosing Sierra over Delphine when Delphi was carrying his child But they can all just marry each other What an easy solution to messy love triangles I really liked the relationship between Rasten and Cam Cam is such a typical golden boy who is all about honour and protecting the people so of course he has this black and white view that Rasten is bad and so must die But as he gets to know him he s able to learn that maybe Rasten is not so bad after all Speaking of Rasten and relationships his love for dogs completely stole my heart It made me so happy I love that Issey s strategy to keep Rasten from killing himself is to give him puppies So beautiful Issey is actually really thoughtful and considerate considering the hell he s been through but on that note wasn t it mysterious the way he woke up with extra power Did we ever get an explanation for who was behind it I wanna know who s baby Sierra is carrying I mean that girl got a lot of action Personally I m hoping it s Rasten s and their kid is the reason for a spin off series I d 100% read it hide spoiler A Fire Within: Sekret Machines Series, Book 2 person who can help him is the

One for the horrors of his past But when their enemies in Akhara follow Cam's small clan back to Ricalan carrying a thirst for vengeance the skills Rasten swore he'd renounce may be their only hope for victor This review is informed by having finished all the series but I ll just repeat the review in each oneOverall I m glad to have read to the end of the third book I thought the story was worthwhile and well done the character development definitely improved over the series and the magic system was pretty original I would really like to read a series set later in time that explored the magic a lot Warning for spoilers ahead CharactersSierra did we ever really get to know her Motivations were often a little unclear and seemed to suit the plot than actually fit her character and her character moved further and further from the limelight as the series continued The character development was limited in a way because the reader never really got to know much about any of the characters While avoiding info dumping is important I really wish I could have got a sense of each character s back story fairly early in the book because I was still trying to piece together exactly where everyone was from and how they fit together halfway through the third book Having said that Rasten s character arc was fantastic and the characterisation of his mental state mostly very believableMagic system Totally lacking in clarity A bit like characters there was an info dump on how magic worked somewhere in I think the third book This should have been somewhere near the start of the first because it was never completely clear til then The reader needs to understand the system so it s not a distraction wondering if you understand it yetTortureTorture was a central theme of the book uestionable whether it was perhaps too much too often Was it really believable Especially is it believable that anyone can put up with that much The author does a fairly good job of showing the post traumatic injury done to everyone by the torture especially in the second and third books But is it realisticSlavery I could just about cope with the torture scenes but the whole depiction of slavery was a bit too much made me want to throw the book against the room I don t really enjoy slogging through those how much awful can we put the character through before they rise in triumph on the other side type books although the redeeming feature here I guess is the lack of rising in triumphI didn t really find the behaviour of the slavers group that believable It felt at times like the author had read the worst accounts of child abuse torture and slavery and decided that in societies where these things happened they must happen in their worst form all the time to everyone Real people and societies are much varied their motivations and personal convictions clash I didn t feel this came through well in the first book in particularDisability acuired injury traumaThe way the author deals with the mental and physical trauma and disability acuired through a traumatic incident seems good although speaking from limited experience or research At least she doesn t have them get over it and get better and especially not within an unrealistic timeframe Because it s such a trope of fantasy books I kind of expected Sierra s power would actually turn out to be a power to heal so it was nice to be surprised here even though her power was never really well explained Relationships and romanceI liked the diversity of relationships and especially a whole culture where monogamous relationships were not the norm although it was never uite explained how the family system worked The development of relationships between the characters whether romantic or not was one of the best
