Publisher's Summary

Branded a traitor by her people, Shea and her warlord - the fiercely dangerous Fallon - travel to the Pathfinders' seat of power at her father's request, hoping to form an alliance despite the distrust between them. It doesn't take long before Shea and Fallon realize something is dangerously wrong in the place she once called home. Ancient, deadly creatures - gone for hundreds of years, once again walk the lands, awakened from a deep sleep. Worse, it seems the Pathfinders are keeping a secret - one that could destroy them all.  

On the brink of battle with each other, the Pathfinders and Trateri must join forces if they hope to defeat the evil at the heart of the Badlands. As the tension rises between the two peoples, and Shea and her family, Shea and Fallon must convince them to overcome their differences if they are to triumph over impossible odds. Because the beasts may be the least of their worries. Sometimes betrayal comes from within, and the most dangerous monsters may be those closest to them.

Good ending to series arc

Good ending to a good trilogy.
Shea, Fallon, and the Trateri follow her dad to the Wayfarer’s Keep in hopes of obtaining boomers, and to scope out the Highlands.
Shea knew the Keep was full of secrets - politics, history, weapons, passages. She didn’t know the Pathfinders were broken into factions with deadly infighting.
And the evil in the Badlands grows stronger.

I agree with other reviewers that this is a better, more grownup Shea compared with the first two books. The action and world building in those books offset her character deficiencies. Fallon was never a wimp, but his ruthlessness and focused vision were more clearly defined in this story. Not sure if it’s due to better characterization by the author, or just viewed against this individual story, but rereading the series will come before the audio of The Wind’s Call is released. Smiles. Reading the new ebook next - part of The Broken Lands series, but primary female character is Eve, the Lostling who was working with the Trateri horses.

Lewis’ narration is ok, but her voice is more 30s-40s mature woman, rather than 20s young adult woman.
And why didn’t anyone correct her pronunciation of Shea? It should be “shay”, NOT “shay-yuh”. It got on my nerves. One of the hallmarks of a really great audiobook is how many times I want to listen. Shayyuh wrecks that.

3.5 stars

This series seems to be going down hill and I don’t enjoy it as much as I did at the start unfortunately. It’s still ok, and there’s good bits, but not sure if I’ll get the next one.

vexing...

The narrator gave me fits with very flat performance that was suddenly vibrant during dialogue. back and forth between flat and animated... Perhaps it's deliberately like that, I don't know. I got used to it and ultimately it didn't make me enjoy the book less. But it never quite stopped being noticeable.
The story and characters was brilliant. Loved every word.
