Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads

When word that Yelena is a Soulfinder—able to capture and release souls—spreads like wildfire, people grow uneasy. Already Yelena's unusual abilities and past have set her apart. As the Council debates Yelena's fate, she receives a disturbing message: a plot is rising against her homeland, led by a murderous sorcerer she has defeated before...

Honor sets Yelena on a path that will test the limits of her skills, and the hope of reuniting with her beloved spurs her onward. Her journey is fraught with allies, enemies, lovers and would-be assassins, each of questionable loyalty. Yelena will have but one chance to prove herself—and save the land she holds dear.


This book was a roller coaster and kept me on the edge of my seat. The stakes were pretty high in this one and I never knew what would happen next.

Yelena goes through so much. She also grows into her magic a lot. She makes some dumb decisions, but I understand why. The story also showed more about other characters like Lief, Moon Man, and the Commander. The characters are very realistic which makes the story unnerving.

Poison Study continues to be my favorite, but this was a great conclusion to the trilogy. It explored all of the themes throughout the series to their fullest. Characters, politics, magic. They were all fully developed. And it was a very realistic finale.

I know I'm being very vague, but I'm trying to avoid spoilers.

I am happy wiht how this ended. I'm excited that there are more books, but I'm also nervous. What if the books aren't as good as the main series? That is always the struggle. And it isn't going to stop me from still reading them.

Thanks for reading!
