She fights as the champion of peace, but when the night is darkest will she be able to pay the price of a new dawn?
An epic finale to an epic fantasy series!
The crystal magic was crazy dark. This book includes lots of heartbreak and tough choices, but also tons of romance, action, politics, magic, and adventure. The battle scenes were incredibly well written. I loved watching how all the characters grew and changed throughout the series.
I feel a little conflicted about something that happened at the end, but overall I loved this book, I adored this series, and I even though I binged it in a week, I never wanted it to end!
