Publisher's Summary

 "A pinch of Potter blended with a drop of [Cassandra Clare's] Infernal Devices." (Justine Magazine)

"Plot twists so good they will leave you reeling." (Traci Chee, New York Times best-selling author of The Reader)

It's time for her power to rule.

As Henrietta nervously awaits her marriage to Lord Blackwood, she discovers that Sorrow-Fell is not a safe haven from the bloodthirsty Ancients. It's a trap. So with her friend Maria and Magnus, the young man who once stole her heart, at her side, Henrietta plots a dangerous journey straight into the enemy's lair. 

Some will live. Some will die. All will be tested.

In this stunning conclusion to the Kingdom on Fire series, Henrietta must choose between the love from her past, the love from her present, and a love that could define her future. While battles rage, the fate of the kingdom rests on her decision: Will she fall or rise up to become the woman who saves the realm?

Fantastic conclusion to the Kingdom on Fire series

A Sorrow Fierce and Falling is the third and final book of the Kingdom of Fire series. Fiona Hardingham continues her fine job of narrating the series. Her variety of accents help her give unique voices to each of the characters.

Henrietta is locking in battle with the Ancient Ones. This time the battle is not just for London but for the world. The Ancient Ones wish to swallow the British Isles whole and then move on to the rest of the world. Henrietta finds more clues on how the Ancient Ones came to our world and hopes one of the clues will help her defeat them. Sorcerers, witches, faeries, magicians and a young Queen Victoria populate this England at war. If you read books 1 and 2, you need to read book 3 to see the conclusion. If you haven't read the series yet, check it out.

It was very hard to write this review without spoilers. I am afraid I did not do the book justice.

Heart Bursting, Twist turns and deeply satisfying conclusion

Perfectly rendered. My heart is squeezing for all the characters I’ve come to love and hate and know so well. Such a well crafted conclusion.

What a way to end a trilogy

I love that I was able to pick this book up after a year and a 1/2 of not being in the world. The characters grew and changed so much throughout this entire trilogy and to have an epilog like there was added to it so much

epic ending! you will cry, laugh, and be shocked!

I loved this series and sad to see it end. there is a lot of heart aches and sadness in the last book but the ending was right for the series. lots of character growth. loved all the main characters. great job Jessica Cluess and Fiona rocked it as usual. that woman is endless in her abilities and talents.
