This is a book I am kicking myself for not reading sooner. Then again, I am glad I read it at this time because I got to enjoy myself reading this. Again the story is told time and time again, heroine wants to escape her past. Finds a handsome traveler willing to help her and they slowly fall in love.

What set it apart for me was the world they live in. Alwyn had you wanting to know more about the secrets, and to see what was lies and what was truth. I liked it and walked away feeling like it was a great ending for the first book.… (més)

Hero At the Fall by Alwyn Hamilton is the conclusion to the epic fantasy trilogy entitled “Rebel of the Sands”. With a setting that is part wild west, part Arabian fantasy, these three books are full of adventure, magic and romance. I was pleased with the ending, feeling that the author wrapped up all major plot lines in a satisfactory way.

This last volume is strongly focused on the main character, Amani, and we can see how much she has grown over the course of the trilogy. After their long separation, it was great to see Amani and Jin back together again. While all characters don’t make to the end, I thought the author handled everything as realistically as she could considering she was writing about rebellion, battles and magical Djinn. In this book, the desert was very important and the reader can almost feel the heat and sandy dryness.

Although this last book started off slow, with the alliance being trapped in a city and many of the most important characters captured but once they got out the pace picked up and we were awarded with lots of action. Overall I loved following these characters and I enjoyed this YA series.

This end to the trilogy took a bit longer to get into than the previous books. Rebellion kicked into full swing. Things were wrapped up as best they could be.

A great sequel to the first in the trilogy - think I liked it more than the first, in fact. A smart and interesting continuation of the series. Recommended to those interested in an enticing fantasy world.
