This is an intense, gripping, exciting, and sometimes sweetly moving series finale. The richly imagined and vast world of Furysong, like the first two books in the series, features complex, relatable characters that keep the pages turning with even more intensity on all fronts: dragon battles, political intrigue, romance, and some surprises along the way.

Reading the series in order is strongly recommended, or else readers may find the characters, places, and story confusing. Even so, with so many characters, multiple narrators, revolutions, and counterrevolutions it can sometimes be a bit confusing remembering who's who. But it's pretty easy to get back on track. Dragon fans will especially enjoy that dragons are more developed as characters in this volume. And it all builds to an exciting and satisfying ending.
