SYNOPSIS

Unlikely alliances are forged and trust is shattered in the stunning conclusion to The Traitor’s Trilogy.

A new queen under threat.
An ambassador with a desperate scheme.
Two kingdoms with everything to lose.

Once a spy and counselor to the throne, Sage Fowler has secured victory for her kingdom at a terrible cost. Now an ambassador representing Demora, Sage is about to face her greatest challenge to avoid a war with a rival kingdom.

After an assassination attempt destroys the chance for peace, Sage and her fiancé Major Alex Quinn risk a dangerous plot to reveal the culprit. But the stakes are higher than ever, and in the game of traitors, betrayal is the only certainty.

MY THOUGHTS

This was a solid conclusion to the trilogy! This series does a great job of balancing the politics, intrigue, and espionage with action and battles. I really like Sage and Alex together because they complement each other so well. Alex made a decision for their relationship that really bothered me at first, but once he actually explained his reasoning and made up for it, he was easy to forgive.

Clare was a bit annoying in this book. The first two books were not kind to her so I empathize, but I didn’t like the tension in her friendship with Sage throughout the book.

I enjoyed a lot of the developments in this story, but I was a little disappointed in the big mystery of this book. These characters are too smart to not figure out sooner who was behind the assassination attempt.

Overall, I recommend this if you are in the mood for a classic YA fantasy trilogy!
