    Yes, that’s 5/5 stars!!

    All the stars I can throw in there!! 😍😍

    Wow... It’s been a while since I’ve read a book that I honestly could NOT put down!! But of course, it had to be Cinda Williams Chima’s world that enchanted and wrapped me up completely in the characters and their intertwining stories! Because, wow...

    This book has our storm creating pirate on the cover (Evan Strangward 😍), but it’s about all the characters as they struggle to figure out how the fractured Seven Realms can unite and face the threat of the Empress - and I LOVE how

    This series always has the best political intrigue with a great ever surprising magic system!

    I love them - wonderful, complex and distinctive characters! And they’re all in this one! We have the pirate mage, the poisoner/healer, the soldier (so happy that Hal was in this a lot), the dragon rider, the spy (Destin, I liked him from book one, and I’m not disappointed now that we see more 😍), the princess, the magical musician, the smuggler!

    But I wish there was more of Breon. He’s just so adorable and funny, and I love his POV.

    I loved the bits and start of romance! I ship all the couples in this series so hard, and the one introduced in this one I knew was there since the first book! 😁👍🏼 (Would it be a spoiler to mention who they are? 🤔)

    I did wish that there was a bit more romance overall for the characters, but I guess that’s because we’re nearing the end, the plot is getting more intense and putting everyone where they need to be — (but I need those reunions to happen for all the ships, before the actual ending of the series, please! 😁)

    And fans of the first series, The Seven Realms - I think you’ll like this installment too! 😉

    The ending makes me know the next book will be EPIC, and judging by the final book of the first series, I have no doubts!!

    This book was exactly what I’d waited for, it did not disappoint. I love this series, this world, these characters. My god, there were so many bomb shells that I’m still sort of reacting to.

    I’m just a sucker for it all, all the moving pieces and the way the storylines weave together and the endless strategy of it. C.W. Chima never fails to surprise me at every turn. These are the kind of novels you have to set aside time to give your full attention to, that possess you with a

    to know what happens next. And then leave you floundering in wait for the next one. I’ll never be able to fathom why these books aren’t more widely read. Go read them, don’t let me spoil you.

    Stormcaster was one thing after the other. And, just like the last two books, we’ve got way more pieces of the puzzle to sort through this time. We met Evan back in Flamecaster, but weren’t exactly very endeared to him. Now, with his entire past on the table, he’s one of the family. And having his and Destin’s background made me need to peak back through Flamecaster and wonder how I could’ve missed it. I love Destin Karn and Evan Strangeward. They broke my heart. That seems to be a running theme for the pairings in these books.

    Things really started to come together in this third novel. We finally got a glimpse at what might really be going on Carthis, and it’s not looking good to say the least. Plus, characters have started meeting up, even filling each other in on all the endless plotting. I loved it. But the next book’s reunions are going to be dazzling.

    All my lovelies better get their happy endings, and I’m really looking forward to certain folks getting what’s coming to them.

    I'll always be somewhat bitter about the cover swap of Shadowcaster. However, I guess this cover is relatively nice looking so I do approve.

    I need this book like yesterday, please April come quick!

  • Melissa ♥ Dog/Wolf Lover ♥ Martin

    Holy crap on a cracker!!! I loved it!

    I loved the hell out of this book!! I meant to re read the first two but wasn't able to but I'm hoping to re/read all three. I hope the last book knocks the series out of the ballpark!

    These characters are awesome! Actually, I think I might need to re/read the 4 books in the beginning of this world and then start these again! Who knows! I'm just happy with this book for now!

    Happy Reading!

    This was definitely better then Shadowcaster for me. Not that Shadowcaster was bad it was just missing elements that I love about CWC's books. I kind of love how each of these books takes us into the lives of characters before the start of Flamecaster and kind of directs us on how they got from point A to point B. In this we followed Evan who is an orphan who was raised by Pirates until he finds out that he is so much more then that. I will leave it at that since this is the third book in the Sh

I will leave it at that since this is the third book in the Shattered Realms series. CWC writes so fluidly from page to page. She finds ways to make all the characters come together through magnificent storytelling. The one thing that makes this series stand out for me is that it is more political action then anything. And because CWC writes so effortlessly the plot never drags on. I don't know how this is all going to wrap up in just one more book but I am excited to see what is in store for the finale! Too bad I have to wait a year!

    When I first read

    I told myself be careful what you wish for.

    This

    is set 25 years after

    which is one of my all time favorite YA fantasy series. Because that is the case, the character shift to Han and Raisa’s children being the main characters meant they are not safe. Some of the characters I love from the first series are going to die and that was also why thirty pages into

    I was in tears sobbing and didn’t think I’d continue the book.

    made me glad I continued because after I wiped away all my tears I had a theory, a dream, a hope for my beloved character who was gone and I WAS RIGHT!!! and it made everything so much better for me.

    is much like

    and

    in that we spend the first 30% of the book with a new character getting their backstory and bringing us up to present time. Evan was the envoy that came to Ardenscourt for Jenna in

    His origin story was so interesting I didn’t care that it took us a third of the book to get back to where we left off at the end of

    . Evan and Destin’s history was fleshed out and I will say it was different than I expected but wonderful. I was happy to find out he wasn’t exactly what we thought he was.

    We have a few different story lines happening; Adrian is with Lila headed back to his homeland and to see his mother *insert tears here*. Alyssa is captured with Breon and headed to wherever the Empress lives. Hal is on his way to his father to try to gather an army to look for Alyssa. Destin is in Ardenscourt hoping to stop a civil war. Lila is actually in all of the places because that girl is badass and totally gets around. Jenna is with her Dragon Cas and they are having their own adventure, let’s just mention here how awesome Cas is.

    The thing I love about this world is that the women in it are so strong. It is one of the few stories I’ve read that has a Queendom instead of a Kingdom. The head of the Army is a woman, one of the top spies is a girl and another girl is a tamer of dragons and has hatched a dangerous plan of her own. Never is it said the girls should be bundled up, stowed away safely, knitting. They are all out there making differences and being strong in so many ways.

    is where I think a lot of the story is getting traction. There are some bigger movements on what the Magemarked are and why the Empress is after them. I especially enjoyed learning more about the bloodsworn and trying to develop a theory about what those crazy blood drinking priests might be. Adrian’s reunion with his mother opens back up the political intrigues which lead to Han’s assassination and the attempt on Alyssa. I loved getting page time with Raisa. I’ve missed her so much since she is not the star of the series. But again she is the wonderful character I loved so much in the

    It is fantastic to be back in this world and while you might have shied away from it if you read the

    I think fans will be especially excited about a few of the developments in this series in regards to characters from the original series.

    Warning – This contains a developing relationship between a same sex couple. While there is no sex, there is a kiss. I don’t say this to discourage anyone from reading it but as a parent I liked knowing those things going in so I could answer questions my kids might have had. I hope this doesn’t dissuade anyone from reading.

    As always, this is well performed and the narration of the all the characters is done well.

    I just love this whole world so much! I still recommend reading the Seven Realms series before this one (mostly so you can be upset when certain characters are killed off here... so much fun yay).

    It's a bit harder for me to get into each book in this series right away since each one introduces more new characters, but by the end of each book most familiar faces are back and I'm desperate for the sequel. I'm actually kind of glad I discovered the Seven Realms series after all four books were out

    It's a bit harder for me to get into each book in this series right away since each one introduces more new characters, but by the end of each book most familiar faces are back and I'm desperate for the sequel. I'm actually kind of glad I discovered the Seven Realms series after all four books were out so I could binge-read them in one weekend... these endings are not messing around.

    So the fact that there are a LOT of characters to keep track of now is kind of a pro and con at the same time for me. I love all of them and am definitely fascinated in their different plot & how those will weave together! But then it's kind of like what happened with the Falling Kingdoms series -- the characters you really care about get so little page time because there are so many different people to cover. I do love how the characters are more diverse now, though.

    I had a lot of fun with this third book overall and think it set up the next book to be pretty exciting! I mean, there's a rebel soldier, warrior princess, pirates, an epic queendom, and DRAGONS. Enough said.

    4.5⭐

    Reading this now was ill advised. Now there’s the dreaded year-long wait for the finale and I’m still no closer to answers than I was in book one.

    This was amazing! I’ve been waiting for Evan Strangward story since Shadowcaster and CWC did NOT disappoint.

    I don’t know how everything will be wrapped up in the next book since there are loose ends literally at every turn but I sure am excited to find out.
