This is the final book in the Falconer trilogy. Aileana Kameron has been resurrected by ancient fae magic and has no memory of her past or any idea of how she is now the keeper of a dangerous magic that she is unable to control. 

Determined to break this “curse”  while trying to control the powers, Aileana, must find an ancient book guarded by the powerful fae Morrigan. In order to save the people she loves. Aileana must do the impossible. 

I enjoyed this series and I enjoyed the cover art tremendously as well. The first thing to say about the final book is that it is much more romance filled than the other two. So, if you didn’t want a romance novel as the final novel, then you should not read this. I did roll my eyes, once I saw where the book was heading but it didn’t make it any less of a good book.

Although I was surprised, I loved this book. Aileana is still bad ass but less whinny. She is much more realistic to the whole end of the world and she is not heartless to the Fae. She understands that they have lost their world, just as much as the Humans have. I liked that about this book. What I didn’t like about her and pretty much since the first book, is that her word or nothing else. I love her determination and what she is willing to fight for but she really screws people over for her own piece of mind. It was annoying.

I loved the pace of the novel. But I do wish there was more fighting. There wasn’t enough of what made the Falconer a good book. There was less physical drama then one would think as the final battle. It would have been great to have just a little more. Despite that, I loved the grown Aileana. It kept me reading.

The ending left no question to another book. I can see the author doing a side story or series to a particular character but other than that I was happy to say that the series has ended with a thought out ending, I wasn’t exactly expecting.

Overall,

5 Pickles
