Publisher's Summary

The highly anticipated conclusion to the epic and exciting Kingmaker Chronicles series

The destiny Catalia "Cat" Fisa has spent her entire life running from has finally caught up to her. But in order to truly accept her fate and become Queen of Thalyria, Cat and her dedicated husband Griffin Sinta will have to go to war with the severely oppressed Fisa - and it's violent alpha, Cat's homicidal mother.

But when Cat's magic refuses to work like it should, she has to unleash the power she's been afraid of. And when her misuse of the god's gifts lands her in Tartarus, a land reserved for eternal punishment, Cat will have to accept herself - past, present, and future - if she wants any chance of making it out alive.

Sorry to Say....

I love the first two books in this series. The world building and character development in them are beautiful and re-listening to them isn't a chore (I think I'm up to three times now which isn't usual for me). Needless to say I've been awaiting the third and final book with baited breath and I'm at best apathetic.

The book found Cat growing and regressing over and over in very short periods of time, often even repeating the same phrases in her epiphanies. If anything she lost dimension from the last two stories to this one and Griffin was extra super flat.
The story went almost nowhere in such a long time. The author focused on encounters that could have been brief and glazed over more important interactions, and many of the scenarios were echoed later in the story.

I was so frustrated and annoyed that I almost didn't finish this one guys....

Awful... Heroine whines throughout

I got all the way to the end. Just one hour was left and I simply couldn’t take it any longer. Kat whined and complained all the way to the end. I tried to wait and see if the punishment by the gods would finally stop it but no, she kept going. Mind you she’s been whining about not understanding her powers from Book 1. This particular book compared to the first two was awful. Modern day women that are independent and confident in their sense of self will be annoyed by her and shouldn’t waste their time. Just stop at the second book and draw your own conclusion. The End... #NEXT

Disappointed

All the things I loved about this character seemed to be overshadowed by her whining and whining and some more whining. It took until the 12th hour of a 13 hour audible book to finally get her to discover her strength. Come on! I had enjoyed the previous two books immensely, so when I had to speed up the narration to get through it I was very disappointed. Plus, I felt like it was just a big build up to fall flat. All the charisma, humor, and fun was missing from this book. Disappointing way to end. However, narrator Mia Barron was fantastic as she was in the last two audiobooks.

I made it!

I struggled to finish this book and will never read or listen to this author again. The heroine was "everything is my fault" character and the hero is almost nonexistent in this book. If the heroine had practiced her magic, most of the tragedies would have never happened. That was so frustrating.

This trilogy line devolved

The first book was great. Had a wonderful storyline and all the romance stuff simply complimented the storyline. The second book was good not great. The romance started to eclipse the storyline and I started falling asleep during sex scenes waiting to 'get back to the story.' This final and third book was pretty good but disappointing. And not because of the ending. Although, had the author spent more time giving us some tie up of the the characters than prolonging this book with needless sex and repetitive sentiment. This book just felt a bit forced. what I mean is, this book could have and probably should have been way shorter. This was the book that devolved into sex/feelings with some storyline thrown in. Even so, all in all, I think all three books are worth listening to and will provide most listeners with hours of entertainment.

A very satisfying ending to the series

A lot of previous comments on this book have been negative. Which is unfortunate because the series ending was well written, leaving no loose ends. What it wasn't was as violent as the two previous books. Kat is pregnant throughout this book and "hormonaly" re-evaluates everything in her life. She is overwhelmed by emotions. And with that, she is constantly second guessing her actions, the results are life or death and if she is capable of being a good mother when her own mother is as evil as they come. So, the book is realistic. A soon to be mothers journey thru self doubt and panick all while bearing the gods journey to ratify her country and de-throne her mother. And she still kicks ass along the way.

3 stars

By the time I got to this book, I think the dynamic relationship of Cat and Griffin sort of diminished compared to how I read them from book 1. The interest for me has also gone down while reading this book. It was just ok. The first book was my favorite.
