No crying from this trilogy!

This book follows A Heart so Fierce and Broken. Violence and Drinking are the same as the first two. There are two sex scenes with limited description. This is the final book in the trilogy which is told from all perspectives from the first two books. It's a satisfying ending to the trilogy. There is a spinoff trilogy told from new perspectives but includes all of the characters from this trilogy. The first book is Forging Silver into Stars.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (4 ):

Political, ethical, and romantic conflicts abound in Brigid Kemmerer's thrilling tour de force that brings her trilogy of love, magic, hard-won wisdom, and plentiful gore to a satisfying conclusion. As Harper struggles to free Rhen once and for all from the enchantress's clutches, Grey falls in love with the queen of Syhl Shallow, and war looms between the two kingdoms; there's more than enough misunderstanding and long-held grievances for mutually assured destruction. Trying to avert this are four strong protagonists/narrators, each bringing a fundamentally different viewpoint and experience and struggling to do the right thing in impossibly difficult situations. They've come a long way in the course of the Cursebreaker series, making A Vow So Bold and Deadly a compelling, thought-provoking read.
