In the third and final volume of the Remnants series—Seasons of Glory—the power of the Remnants and their people are growing, threatening Pacifica’s careful plans for domination. Among the Trading Union, village after village, outpost after outpost, and city after city are drawn to people of the Way, and agree to stand against those who hunt them. But Pacifica intends to ferret out and annihilate the Remnants—as well as everyone who hasn’t sworn allegiance to the empire—setting the stage for an epic showdown that will change the course of a world on the brink … forever.
I was sent an ARC copy by the author in exchange for an honest review. This in no way affects my review.
If you know me well, you know that this was one of my most anticipated reads of 2016. I fell in love with this series about a year ago, and I’m faithful to it until the end. These books are unlike any I’ve seen before and my love for these books cannot fit into this post, so I’ll stop ranting now and give you my review (but we all now the review will be full of ranting, too).
Okay, so this book. THIS BOOK. Lisa knows how to write, and she always seems to mess with my heart (I’ve started believing she does it on purpose). This book was no exception. I shed so many invisible tears (and maybe a few real ones) and my heart was aching. This book was a beautiful ending full of adventure, intrigue, and love.
So the plot was A+, as always, and carried on the series very well. I love how it showed what happened with even the minor characters from the first 2 books. Questions were answered and personalities were revealed and explored.
The characters were amazing (duh) and I loved learning new things about them. I won’t spoil anything, but things happen (and of course with my favorite character), and your heart will ache. If it doesn’t, I don’t think you have a heart and then you should probably get that checked out.
The end was satisfying for the most part, but it left me with a few questions about other characters. I really would love a set of novellas about the future of certain characters (I won’t name them cause I don’t want to spoil anything, but Lisa knows what I want;) So yeah, it was a great ending, but I’d love more. Of course, I always want more, so this is nothing new.
As for cleanliness… The book is Christian and has no language or inappropriate scenes. I has a few kisses and mention of people desiring each other fully, but no desire is acted upon. This finale is just as dark as the first two, so if you can handle the darkness of the first two, you’ll do fine with this one. Plus, there are some fighting and a few blood wounds, but nothing too bad.
