We have Laia of Serra, our fighter, survivor and Scholar. The Soul Catcher, formerly known as Elias Venturia, a former Mask who spends his time passing on the ghosts of the dead and trying to forget his former life. The Blood Shrike is a formidable character and even though she has many rough edges, it is easy to see how honor and duty as well as family are important to her. Keris Venturia, Elias's mother, but now the self-declared Empress, wrecks havoc and leaves a string of bodies wherever she goes. Strong as she is, she is an enigma until her story is finally explained in this book. Finally, the Nightbringer, aligned with Keris for his own reasons, he helps to bring about death and destruction. His end game? Well that is something we find out in this final book!
The story brings all the characters together slowly as they allign, formulate plans to work together and try to win. Each has their own agenda and feelings or non-feelings as we have seen in the previous books, but one common thread holding all of them is love. The ability to care and love can make anyone do things beyond their expectation or imagination. We also have our favourite characters, Harper, Darin, Musa and some very unexpected characters make appearances and help carry the story along. Of course, not everyone can reach the finish line and some of the character deaths are devastating. There are moments of joy that make us smile and as the war progresses, a lot of the parallel story lines become clear and come to their own conclusions. There are no loose ends in my opinion.
This is a story of loss, yes a lot of it, sadness, hatred, but also understanding and forgiveness. Knowing a person's Kehanni will help to understand who they are and why they are the way they are. The author weaves a magical and spell-binding tale keeping the reader enthralled until the very end. This is a fitting conclusion and culmination of the events that happen across all the books in the series!
My opinion: Firstly, I expected a lot that this book would be next level because this book is the finale to the Ember quarter. So, don't think this book would be something special. No, it's the same.
Coming to the plot progress, the plot progress is smooth and doesn't leave you bored. The book is again is said in three perspectives and how each of them tries to defeat the Nightbringer in their own way is what drives the book till the end.
The book covers and conveys very good emotions of each character, like its previous ones but this one here is very deep. Emotions of love, loss, anger, vengeance, hope, strength, joy are well portrayed.
The secondary characters like Darin, Musa etc. are also given a good role in the book and there's a lot of action and dramatic moments.
What was my favourite in this book are the last ten chapters which turned the tables and after a lot of sadness, there are happy moments and a smooth transition to the ending.
All I say is, don't expect something very special in this book. Just go with the flow of events and have patience. This book won't fail you. Beautiful series, nevertheless....
I won’t dwell too much on the plot of the finale. If you haven’t read the previous three books, it won’t make much sense, and I don’t want to be giving away secrets you are better off discovering for yourself.
The book and the series is full of heart-stopping twists and turns. Tahir creates a lot of intrigue by giving you just enough information in each book while maintaining an over-arching mystery. And, of course, each one ends with a cliff-hanger—a piece of the puzzle that remains to be solved, which leaves you thirsting for more. And thirst I did.
There is action, and there is drama, there is love, and there is loss. In between, there are a generous sprinkling of epic battle scenes that will leave you, dear readers, bloody and bruised. But the one thing which stood out for me, above everything else (and there’s so much to love here) are the characters. I adored them all. Every single one of them.
I loved the heroes in the story, but I loved the villains even more. Tahir makes both the human and fae complex and deeply flawed. The good guys sometimes hurt, maim and ravage, while her rouges love and cherish and forgive, and everyone is a little messed up. Okay, very messed up.
And The Nightbringer, he is possibly the greatest foe of all time. Even better than Voldermort. Yes, I said it. I can sense some of you want to come swing and swipe at me with your clubs and your daggers, but I am more than ready to fight you all on this. There’s a war going, after all.
But why, you ask?
Because he is all too human, if you have felt joy and despair, hope and sorrow—you are him. If you’ve loved someone and lost someone—you are him. If you’ve been hurt and betrayed—you are him. If you are a parent, a child, a lover, a partner, a teacher, a friend—you are him. We are all the Nightbringer, and he is us.
It was easy for us, as readers, to hate Voldermort because he had never loved and never knew love. It was convenient to see him as the other, to pick a side. In a sense, Rowling did all the work for us. But Tahir forces us to makes these choices on our own. And they are hard, oh so hard.
I wept like every other page for the last one hundred pages of the book. A hundred times, my heart broke only to mend and then break again.
I feel empty, but I also feel full. What more can we ask from our stories?

I have only just finished and I feel the void already. I will truly miss the characters more than I can express
