I loved this series so. Freaking. Much. The build-up between Laia and Elias' relationship broke my heart and melted it. The way Helene took rule of the empire was just...wow. The way the author created this world and other dimensions (kind of) within it blew my mind. The character development was outstanding, and Livia's little son is just adorable. I am SO sad this series has come to an end, but I'm so happy because the ending was awesome. Kudos to you, Sabaa Tahir. Can't wait to see what's next! ( )

I strung finishing this one out for so long. One of my favorite series and I'm so sad to see it end!
Don't want to give away ANY spoilers, so I'll just say my heart was broken in (many, many) places, but the ending resolutions left me grateful for the adventure! ( )

Ok

::: deep breath:::

Right off the bat I have to admit that I am little nervous... scared I won't do this series the justice it deserves. My mind is stuck in fangirl mode soooo basically it's mush. Coherent sentences may be beyond me at this point BUT I'll try.

I have loved this series with all of my heart since the very first chapter in An Ember In The Ashes. I have smiled and cried and raged and my heart has broken and mended so many times throughout this series that I am surprised it's not just a handful of shards unable to fit back together again properly. I am constantly blown away by Sabaa Tahir and her gorgeous mind, her amazing characters, her writing's tone and tempo and all around Majesty. She has the power to transport the reader directly into the middle of the action. I was there, living the story alongside the dynamic cast, and it was glorious.

This time around I enjoyed the series as an audiobook and now I can't see myself enjoying it any other way. In fact, I came to Audible for the ease and left with a transformative experience. Steve West and Fiona Hardingham will FOREVER be Elias and Laia to me. I have obsessed over and dreamed about Elias... actual REM type encounters. Not since Will Herondale have I wished, wholeheartedly, to be seen through another's eyes, truly seen... and Laia of Serra, sweet, strong, adaptable, dependable, loving, avenging bad ass Laia... she is the resident kick ass/djinn reaper/Nightbringer's scourge yet she also holds Elias's heart (and soul) protectively, in her tender, steadfast, loving hands. She is the definition of Woman's Pride AND, being a woman myself, I love that she is unapologetically Female, an avenger against the sexist world around her and the gender/station biased expectations that her world places on her. She's a character that I 100% wish I could be or at least be like. BUT there is also Helene, the Blood Shrike, to admire and I wish I was more like her as well. She is another warrior female that embodies all that women are capable of and showcases the ease with which one can be both Woman and Warrior at the same time. Mrs. Tahir writes the most beautifully, humanly complex characters and then throws them into seemingly impossible and gut wrenching scenarios. Then she kills them off, sniper style, one or two at a time just when you have started to love them and root for their happiness and longevity. I swore to myself that I wouldn't cry and yet...

Is no one safe Mrs. Tahir?

This leads me to the final quarter of the book. This section was absolutely B.R.U.T.A.L! I fear my heart will never be the same. Don't get too attached to any one character because all are on the chopping block and only a few survive the cut. Is it a fair ending? For some, the answer is a resounding NO. There are some Happily Ever Afters that never come to fruition no matter how much heartache they have endured and no matter how much we wish for their happiness. I think the ending is fitting for our war tested, love battered and transformed heros for they definitely do not end up being the same (naive) characters that we fell in love with in book #1.

Overall:

I can't believe it is over. I have waited so long for this book to grant me some much needed closure and frankly, I am both grieving for its end and cheering for its splendor. Sabaa Tahir played me like a well honed instrument. Her artistry is apparent and I am thankful for having been emotionally tossed about her beautiful world because, in the end, I feel fulfilled... now THAT'S worth every penny, minute and tear shed.

I reccomend this book, and more importantly this series, with all of my battered heart and soul. There is absolutely NO way you'll regret spending time in this rich world with these unforgettable characters!!

~ Enjoy ( )

A great conclusion to this series! ( )

Can I just say, what a delight?! A Sky Beyond the Storm, the fourth and final Ember in the Ashes novel, takes you on a final journey that you will cherish. This series remains one of my favorites; I highly recommend reading or listening to it. I listened to all four and read three of them as well. The narrators outdo themselves--they are amazing and deliver the characters with believable emotion. I swear these are our characters' voices!

If you haven't read #1 - 3, I would stop reading this review now. I will give spoilers for previous books but not this book.

Because it's a final book, as usual, I will say little because you need to experience the book. In this novel, everything must end. Helene has lost her family, but her prophecy is to be a torch against the night. Her goals are to defeat the Nightbringer in order to help her people--everything is for her remaining family and the Empire. She never paid attention to Laia in book one because Laia was a slave, a scholar. They are rightfully beneath Helene and her people. It takes several books for Helene to see the humanity in people. She genuinely respects, values, and hopes Laia has a loving future. I enjoyed their relationship in the last two books.

The Nightbringer wants revenge; Laia feels her role is to take down the Nightbringer, to end his cruel revenge. She still strives to break through the Soul Catcher and try to find her Elias. The tribes and scholars cannot fight the Nightbringer and protect their people without a military leader. Laia wants her people and the family she has left to be safe above all and will do anything to save them. Both she and Elias are the embers that can't go out.

Elias/Soul Catcher cannot figure out why there are so few ghosts. Where are they? In his quest, he finds Laia and agrees to help, recognizing that he cannot solve his own problems as Soul Catcher if he can't work with the tribes on the ghosts. If there's any hope for Elias, he must fight the confines of the forest and lead the people against the Nightbringer.

Our three characters were the ones foretold by the Augurs. If they fail, all of society fails. They are asked to sacrifice over and over in the novels. They are always willing to sacrifice themselves, but repeatedly, they experience great pain when the sacrifices involve those they love instead of themselves. In this final showdown, they each face their own battles that will determine the fate of everyone.

I loved it. I elongated it out for a little over a week because I didn't want to leave these characters. I love the ending because it doesn't just end suddenly. There are been four books--I like knowing what happens "after" to all of the characters. How do the survivors survive and live on after the losses and battles? We have a lot of characters to be "settled." Remember, this book and series is about war. War is ugly and takes life, but there's also an after. What do we need to do after war to ensure another war doesn't occur? Look at history to see examples of when this lack of foresight creates another war years later. You may cry; you may smile; you may sigh; but, you will definitely experience death, life, honor, sacrifice, love, and loyalty. ( )
