    4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum s amazing to look back and see how far this series has come What began as a fantasy retelling of Pride Prejudice has flourished and matured into a trilogy that is a phenomenon in its own right Ever since Elle Katharine White started injectingoriginal ideas into the world of Heartstone, expanding the lore and enriching the characters and story with her own personal touch, things have started to really take off 4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum s amazing to look back and see how far this series has come What began as a fantasy retelling of Pride Prejudice has flourished and matured into a trilogy that is a phenomenon in its own right Ever since Elle Katharine White started injectingoriginal ideas into the world of Heartstone, expanding the lore and enriching the characters and story with her own personal touch, things have started to really take off.Flamebringer, the third and final volume, begins with Aliza and Alastair heading off into the wilderness in pursuit of Wydrick, the sworn enemy of the Daireds Reanimated by a ghast, Wydrick is now immortal andpowerful than ever, and he has a dire warning for our characters.In this world of magic and monsters, there are creaturesterrible than you can ever imagine In the heart of the Old Wilds, Aliza and Alistair stumble upon an ancient sanctum holding secrets older than time itself Everything they know and love is now being threatened by a terrible evil, newly awakened and ready to wreak havoc Under its direction, bloodthirsty hordes of Tekari and Ghasts are gathering outside the capital of Edonarle and preparing to attack.Racing against time to warn the city, our couple traveling on the dragon Akarra must brave the elements and other dangers of the wilds But even if by some miracle they manage to survive the coming onslaught, there s still the messy matter of politics to contend with The word is that an ambassador from the south has been dispatched at the behest of the elusive Silent King, and it is anyone s guess what his next move will be.There s a bit of everything in this book, including action, adventure, mystery, and a strong dose of political intrigue There s another noticeable shift here in terms of focus, as this time, the author has decided to go all in on the story Of the three books, Flamebringer feels the most tightly plotted, whisking readers off on this epic journey packed to the gills with edge of your seat battle scenes and shocking watershed moments all of it building up to a finale you won t soon forget.At the same time, White is careful not to neglect the character development amidst all this furious action The relationship between Aliza and Alistair is central to this series, and thankfully this aspect continues to grow and evolve as we watch their marriage go through its ups and downs Despite the novel s aggressive pace, we do get the occasional opportunity to catch our breath and explore Aliza s inner thoughts during these brief moments of respite She is still dealing with a lot of grief and guilt over past losses, and even though Aliza has nothing but love for her family, some of her feelings are causing unwanted tensions between her and her sister.Quite honestly, I was surprised to find such a heavy emotional component in such a fast paced book But at the same time, having been with these characters since the beginning, I feel a closeness to them, especially to Aliza who wears her heart on her sleeve despite the rules of etiquette and social manners being so ingrained in her life I really felt for her, and throughout the novel there were a few intensely raw moments that stood out for me, where I truly believe the author wrote straight from the heart.While a part of me is tempted to say Flamebringer could have useddragons, at the same time, I think we all know the series has moved far beyond that All in all, I couldn t be happier with the way this book ended It s hard to believe such a sensational epic journey grew out of a book like Heartstone, but such surprises are often the best kind Needless to say, I m mighty glad we broke out of the standard retelling mold, and I look forward to seeing all the other ways Elle Katharine White will stretch her creativity muscles in the future Overall, I highly recommend this trio of books for anyone who enjoys a good balance of fantasy, romance, and intrigue

    2.5 starsThis got a little dark for me I don t usually mind dark storylines, but turning something that was based on Pride and Prejudice so dark just didn t sit right with me.I like what the author did with many of the characters Leyda Lydia , Curdred Mr Collins , and Mrs Bennet and I admire the imagination and love for Pride and Prejudice that inspired this trilogy But I didn t enjoy this book like I did the first two Maybe the death view spoiler of Charis hide spoiler in the first 2.5 starsThis got a little dark for me I don t usually mind dark storylines, but turning something that was based on Pride and Prejudice so dark just didn t sit right with me.I like what the author did with many of the characters Leyda Lydia , Curdred Mr Collins , and Mrs Bennet and I admire the imagination and love for Pride and Prejudice that inspired this trilogy But I didn t enjoy this book like I did the first two Maybe the death view spoiler of Charis hide spoiler in the first book should have warned me of the grimness to come, but it didn t prepare me for the sad turn taken in the second book and the atmosphere of sorrow and dread that pervaded most of this one I m not sure I understood or was convinced by the denouement either That might be due to faulty memory or just fatigue from all the drama and sadness by the time I got there I m curious what might come next from this author I hope it will be a story that s not based on a beloved classic She proved in the second novel that she s capable of writing a story that doesn t need to be propped up by another, but I think the original basis on PP caused some dissonance when she launched into a wholly different, much darker story

    Unfortunately, this installment in the trilogy kind of let me down I would still recommend reading the series, it s Pride and Prejudice but with dragons I also appreciated how it went on, though the universe is very different from the original, it gave us a glimpse into how Mr Darby and Elizabeth s lives could have persisted a risky endeavor that paid off in the second but missed the mark here I think my main issue was how much build up there was, 2 3rd of the book was just them trying to p Unfortunately, this installment in the trilogy kind of let me down I would still recommend reading the series, it s Pride and Prejudice but with dragons I also appreciated how it went on, though the universe is very different from the original, it gave us a glimpse into how Mr Darby and Elizabeth s lives could have persisted a risky endeavor that paid off in the second but missed the mark here I think my main issue was how much build up there was, 2 3rd of the book was just them trying to put all the clues together but with the awkward breaks to have an anti climatic fight scene I also felt like the chemistry between Aliza and Alastair was different from what it was in the first two books I just didn t vibe with it as much, it wasn t as exciting or romantic There was too much tragedy and not enough of the lighter scenes which balanced it all in the other two. Still a great series with great world building, it just maybe should have stopped at a duology for me Or should have focusedon characterization rather than the ultimate fight I don t know Nothing will beat the first for me though and it ll always be one of my favorites.This review and all my others can be found at

    I loved book 1 in this series I liked book 2 Book three and what I understand to be the final book in the series was a disappointment for me It was okay, but it went very far from the things that I loved about the first two books.I loved the combination of Pride Prejudice my favourite book and dragons It was clever and well done and channeled the 1800s and its structure and manners really well, while also working in dragons, garden gnomes and other magical folk in a way that just worked I loved book 1 in this series I liked book 2 Book three and what I understand to be the final book in the series was a disappointment for me It was okay, but it went very far from the things that I loved about the first two books.I loved the combination of Pride Prejudice my favourite book and dragons It was clever and well done and channeled the 1800s and its structure and manners really well, while also working in dragons, garden gnomes and other magical folk in a way that just worked I found it all a charming new take on my favourite story.This book really drove hard into action movie with lots of violence and dark, disturbing things happening to the characters Battles, death and war really took over in this book and I found very little of the manners, social relationship challenges and people development that I loved in the first two books I missed that.I realize I am probably not the target demographic for this series book, but I loved the first two nonetheless I am glad I found and read this series, but have to admit that I was disappointed in how it all ended

    Flamebringer brings an end to a fantastic fantasy trilogy based originally on Pride and Prejudice Aliza and Alistair reunite with family and friends in a fight for the kingdom of Arle and that questions the history all hold dear I have thoroughly enjoyed this trilogy and am sad that it s over I hope that Elle Katharine White revisits this kingdom in the future, but I am satisfied with how everything was wrapped up.I received an advance reader copy of this title from the publisher.
