To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Highly readable and very addicting, I couldn't put this book down. It has romance, high-stakes politics, a bitter civil war between two brothers, and a sister whose powers could change everything.
What I LOVED: 1. Sonya learns to depend on her inner strength, not just her aura powers. Her character growth is one of the best parts of the entire series. 2. Anton never ceases to surprise me (and that's a good thing). No spoilers. 3. The fantasy world expands to Esten (a France-like country) where auraseers are treated like slaves. Sonya's story has inspired the auraseers to seek independence and freedom, even at the cost of their own lives. 4. Friendship continues to be essential as both men and women support each other, trust in each other, and work together to bring about positive change. 5. The romance is both sweet and just the right amount of sexy. And the dance scene in the convent? It was smoking hot.
Don't miss this heart-wrenching, beautifully written conclusion of an unforgettable series.
The first two books were my favorites, but I still enjoyed reading Frozen Reign and seeing how things ended. I just felt like it could've been longer. I missed the romantic tension between Sonya and Anton, and the empath/narcissist drama between Sonya and Valko. (We don't see Valko until the very end.) However, I did enjoy learning more about the other Auraseers and the sisterhood bond between them. Kathryn Purdie's writing style is lovely as always. She is an auto-buy author for me! I look forward to reading her next series.
