If this is meant a conclusion to A Curse So Dark and Lonely and A Heart So Fierce and Broken, as the blurb claims, I thought the ending was a bit too anticlimactic, with a few too many loose ends, to be really satisfying.

But I’d prefer a muted ending over something more dramatic and devastating -- and when I reached the end I was feeling positive about the story, because I’d really enjoyed the characters’ interactions.

All of the protagonists have to deal with conflict in relationships: Lia Mara and her sister disagree about politics; Grey doesn’t have the trust or respect of the soldiers he now commands; Rhen and Grey are at odds with each other; Harper and Rhen are hurt and angry over choices the other has made. I loved the times when they each navigate these conflicts by acting fairly and communicating honestly, when doing so is often difficult and complicated. That’s realistic and satisfying.

And I particularly liked how Harper and Rhen talk about their mistakes and misunderstandings -- I actually think that’s a stronger foundation for a relationship than if they just never made any mistakes to begin with. It’s a relationship dynamic I’d like to see explored more in fiction.

“I … I don’t know how to say this.”
“No lies between us.”
“Right.” I smooth my hands against the silk of the dressing gown, feeling it slide along my knees. “I’m realizing that I got so caught up in the poor choices you made I forgot that you knew how to make good ones.”
His eyebrows raise, but he thinks before he speaks, which is probably something I should have done.
“As did I,” he says. “With you.”

Blog Review: https://trishadoeseverythingbutstudy2.wordpress.com/2021/02/01/january-2021-revi...

I received a free e-ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review!

This excerpt was nowhere near enough. At all. It was all nice and slow and just easing into the story, when the last page of the excerpt really went, BOOOM you thought, girl?

I'm really scared about Rhen because oh God he doesn't know about Grey's abilities, and Grey's not telling him, and these two fools are going to destroy the world because of miscommunication.

Its just so sad seeing Harper and Rhen together right now with Harper somewhat scared of Rhen. I don't like this. He needs to be fixed. He needs to go back to what he was. Or eveolve into somehting better, I don't particularly care.

Grey and Lia....well what do I even say? I just love them. But this excerpt was so ominous on that front. It seems like they're growing apart in the wake of Lia's rule. And I don't like that either. This is horrible.

I for one, cannot wait to read the rest of this book!


Pre-reading review:

I SWEAR TO GOD, IF SOMEONE DIES IN THIS I WILL MURDER BRIGID KEMMERER

AND RHEN NEEDS TO REDEEM HIMSELF

AND GREY AND LIA NEED TO STAY TOGETHER


AND I WANT MORE HARPER

Ah, the suspense in this book....
The whole time I was reading this book, I just wanted to get to the ending to see how everything plays out, but now, after I've finished, I'm so sad that there's nothing more after. It has been a wonderful journey with Rhen, Harper, Grey, and Lia Mara, and so I thank you, Brigid Kemmerer, for writing such a wonderful story and sharing it with us. The Cursebreakers trilogy will always have a special place reserved in my heart! ( )

The final book in the Cursebreakers series is everything I hoped for!

The conflict between the kingdoms of Emberfall and Syhl Shallow, between Prince Rhen and Prince Grey, is barrelling toward an all-out war that neither side wants but neither can avoid. The return of the evil enchantress, Lilith, throws another wrench in the works and may just be Rhen’s undoing — unless the two long-lost brothers can find a way to put aside the mistakes of the past and make peace with each other and the twists of fate that brought them to this point.

Although certain characters continued to make some choices that made me want to scream at them, they did eventually learn and grow from them and everything came out alright in the end, which was just so satisfying! I honestly wouldn’t mind another book in the series, or maybe a novella, just to see how things in the kingdoms are progressing. But Brigid Kemmerer has several other books that I haven’t read yet so I will content myself with those instead. :) ( )

That's it? That's the end? The series I loved so much in book 1 really did not hold up through all 3 and that's disappointing. ( )
