About this deal

Overall the major problem with this book was the separate povs never really come together satisfactorily.

If you have read the first two books in the trilogy, then you know that something big is about to happen. Someone who will accompany us when we make mistakes, someone who will be there with us during our journey toward redemption. This was a perfect finale for the trilogy and tied up all the stories of the characters we've followed well.we were introduced to him as this really smart, quick-witted smuggler and you're telling me it took him over two years to figure out an incredibly simple solution to his entrapment?

My issue with this series is that none of it feels believable, none of the characters act like real people, none of the political stakes feel like real stakes. We are just informed it happened and I believe some of the things would have a stronger emotional impact if we read it play out. The Bone Shard War, the last book in The Drowning Empire trilogy, excelled in its construct and beauty.

That being said, the author did a great job of stirring emotions and explaining the magic system even more. Parts of this felt so slow, and the slow parts seemed all over for timings and it really did confuse me. There were world-building and ending mysteries solved, realisations that shook the ground (aside from the Alanga ground shaking). I am happy to say that Andrea Stewart really shined when it comes to this in final book of the trilogy. A complex and dark tapestry of a fantasy woven through with brilliant world-building, deep intrigue, and incredible heart -- Megan E.
