Publisher's Summary

To save her lover’s life, Lira of Stone swore allegiance to a demigod known as the Dragon. She’s transformed into his weapon - the Dragon’s deathbringer, using her gifts to conquer nations and unleash demons. Yet there’s a part of Lira not even the Dragon can stifle, and the soul-reader must find a way to free herself before he declares war against the gods. 

After the warrior Reyker Lagorsson attempted to overthrow the Dragon, Reyker’s soul was fractured. Now, he’s a shadow of his former self, and his battle-madness grows stronger by the day. Reyker will stop at nothing to kill the Dragon and his mysterious death-bringer before his curse consumes him. 

In the final installment of the Frozen Sun Saga, Lira and Reyker face off as enemies, confront their worst nightmares, and make their last stand against the Dragon. But can a god be killed? And if so, at what cost?

If You Like Blood and Pain and Torture….

….then you will like this book. I liked the first two books in the Trilogy and patiently waited for the third. Sadly, I’m disappointed. The narrators are absolutely amazingly splendidly fabulous. At times, I forgot I was listening and not watching. Tom Campbell is cinema-worthy and I found myself bowing to his greatness more than once.

The story lost its way, I think. The first two installments cajoled me into believing this was a romance. It can be called that in only the most diluted way. The first book sets up the lovers, the second book tears them apart, and the third book … well, let’s just say I was massively underwhelmed. This book is about the intrigue of war, about God’s beating their chests, about blood, maiming, pain, torture and more blood. Did I mention there was blood? I might go back and count the instances where it’s mentioned, talked about, experienced in one way or another, and dreamed about. I’m pretty sure the paper book would have the word at least once on every page. I am not certain of the purpose. Our heroine becomes afflicted with a condition, that as she describes it, would be extremely noticeable. Yet, yet she carries on as if something so gross and obvious didn’t exist. Those closest to her say nothing. Even the Hero gets super super close to her without noticing. It made me feel kind of ill.

The ending ties up pretty much everything, but if wasn’t bone weary, I might have a few questions. The outcome is a mix of triumph and measured defeat.

All that said, the greatest parts of the book are the narrators, and they are worth so much MORE than a single credit.

An empty ending

Overall I enjoyed the story. I thought it was well written and narrated. I had a difficult time with Lira enduring so much suffering. To care so much for others and to walk away broken, giving up to the call to duty. To be asking herself if she would find love and ending with hands embraced only in greetings, left me a little empty.

story seemed rushed.

I really struggled with how it ended and struggled to even want to finish the book. It seemed very rushed in parts and was very counter productive, the other 2 books in the series are good in there own areas but this last book just seemed kinda bla.

Im shook!!!

First off let me just say; Alana Kerr Collins and Tim Campbell are AMAZING!! They make this series absolutely stunning with their narration. I would blindly read anything they offer haha. Now; Jill Criswell...how, what..when! UHH!! The details, the depth of the story, and the sheer emotion! I will be for sure re-listening to this series again because I love it so much. This third book was my favorite by far. It was beautifully painful and heart wrenching and just so emotional. Im a forever fan.

Disappointing

I Loved the first two books and I pre-purchased this one, eager to hear the conclusion. This book was disjointed and storyline development skipped. Scenes that could have added depth were completely left out. Worst of all the theme of love conquers all turned into this tragic, self-flagellating mess. Lira and Reyker both became unrecognizable under the author’s need for an odd punishment for what they both sacrificed to fight for each other. I’m hoping for some happier ending fan fiction.
