Publisher's Summary

The incredible conclusion to the Inheritance Trilogy, from one of fantasy's most acclaimed stars.

For 2,000 years, the Arameri family has ruled the world by enslaving the very gods that created mortalkind. Now, the gods are free, and the Arameri's ruthless grip is slipping. Yet they are all that stands between peace and world-spanning, unending war.

Shahar, last scion of the family, must choose her loyalties. She yearns to trust Sieh, the godling she loves. Yet her duty as Arameri heir is to uphold the family's interests, even if that means using and destroying everyone she cares for.

As long-suppressed rage and terrible new magics consume the world, the Maelstrom - which even gods fear - is summoned forth. Shahar and Sieh: mortal and god, lovers and enemies. Can they stand together against the chaos that threatens?

Includes a never-before-seen story set in the world of the Inheritance Trilogy.

Disappointing

weakest of the books in the trilogy. read the first two books and skip this one. very slow moving, and down right boring for large stretches. the narrator changes the pronounciation of a main figure without explanation, which although minor, I find annoying.

Frustrating Inconsistencies

I enjoyed this book and the previous two in the trilogy. However, I was frustrated with the narration. Strangely, the narrator (who also narrated the first two books) switched up the pronunciation of names, places, and concepts in this book. I'm not certain why this was done. Perhaps she had it wrong in the first two books, but if that was the case, I feel that she should have stayed the course and been consistent. It was difficult and confusing for me (maybe more so because I listened to the books back to back) after I had gotten to know the world to hear completely different pronunciations.

Good listen.

This is a solid book but the weakest of the author 's works in my opinion. Only because all her other works are so great.

Narrator slowly gets worse:/

In the first two books, she was great. Then for some reason, she changes pronunciation of a few things and started doing this weird flow of the words. I'll try and explain. In the beginning of each sentence she starts out with a high pitch and then towards the end of the sentence she has a lower pitch voice and she does it with every single sentence and it's just annoying almost to the point where I stopped reading. It was sooo tough to get through it. I want to read the other books by this author but I noticed the narrator is the same and I just can't listen to another book of this weird flow of sentences just disappointed.

First half a bit rambling but got better in 2nd half

Not as good as first two but still a good book if you don’t give up in the first half

Stands alone and unfulfilling

Doesn’t build off the 1st or 2nd and only includes some of same characters as attempt to make connection. Spends a lot of time going down paths that go nowhere and foreshadowing events that don’t occur. A journal of period of Sia’s life full of realizations that come too late.

Looking forward to next series!
