Jason and Rachel were
not born in Lyrian. They did not grow up in Lyrian. But after all of the
battles and losses, the triumphs and adventures, and most of all, the
friendships forged in this fantastical world, Lyrian has become home to
them in a way they never could have imagined.
And so, armed now
with the prophecy of a dying oracle, they have gone on their separate
quests—each surrounded by brave and powerful allies—knowing that the
chance for success is slim. But Jason and Rachel are ready at last to
become the heroes Lyrian needs, no matter the cost.
Excerpt taken from Goodreads.com
I was totally investing into the world of Lyrian and needed to know how they followed the prophecy that the prophetess gave her life to give them at the end of Seeds of Rebellion. I will warn that this book is rather sad because they were fighting someone who wanted to completely dominate the world... and in order to win many sacrifices were needed on many fronts of the war. The last few chapters were so action packed and leaving me with such anticipation... just the way I imagine the characters feeling. I was extremely happy that my prediction for the other group of beyonders went the way I wanted it to. I was even more shocked with the outcome and what Jason and Rachel had to commit to at the end of the novel. It really left me thinking... Could I have done what Jason did? Or could I have done what Rachel did? Really I debated how they would each feel with their actions for the rest of their lives. Endings are my criteria for if a series is well done or not, and Brandon Mull delivers a great series again.
You all should read these books!
Especially if you like Rick Riordan.
