Synopsis: In a world at war, who can you trust?

The empire rests on the edge of a knife, and sisters Ashyn and Moria are the handle and the blade. Desperate to outmaneuver the evil Alvar Kitsune, whose hold on the people grows stronger every day, Emperor Tatsu begs Moria to put aside past grievances and ally with Gavril—at least long enough to make an attempt on Alvar’s life. Meanwhile, reunited with her long-lost grandfather, Ashyn discovers that she is the key to a ritual that could reawaken an ancient dragon and turn the tide of the coming battle in their favor.

But with lies and betrayal lurking around every corner, Ashyn and Moria will have to decide once and for all where their allegiances are. And it may not be where their hearts would lead them…

In this breathtaking final book in her epic trilogy the Age of Legends, #1 New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong blends fantasy, action, and romance to give readers the unforgettable ending they’ve been waiting for.

My Rating
4/5 stars

My Review
A fantastic ending to a beautiful trilogy.

Separated, sisters Ashyn and Moira must follow their own missions to ensure the war goes in their favour. Found by her grandfather and his people, Ashyn is asked to awaken dragons in order to ensure that King Tatsu can win the war against the Kitsune. Moira is forced to travel with Gavril back to Alvar Kitsune and become a secret spy, and if given the opportunity, kill the Kitsune and prevent the war all together. Will the sisters be able to stop the war at their hands?

I have always loved Moira and Ashyn, they’re both so different yet amazing in their own way. In this book we get to see them separated and see how they are able to deal without one another. It was so wonderful to see Ashyn work on her own and take charge of her own destiny, and finally realize that even though they are twins, Moira isn’t the better half, and shes just as good in her own way.

My favourite part of this book was definitely the romance. I was so happy that Moira was still with Tyrus and there was no awkward love triangle. It was very well written and I’m so happy with the ending.

There were some amazing twists and turns along the way, and while I could see some coming from a mile away, the others definitey took me by surprise.

This book would have been a 5 star book, except I feel like the ending wasn’t grand enough. I was expecting this series to go out with a bang. While I did enjoy the ending, I was expecting more. You’ll know what I mean once you read the book.

Overall, I definitely recommend this series to all Fantasy lovers. I cant wait to read more from Kelley.

Happy Reading,
