REVIEW TOUR & #GIVEAWAY - Fall of Thrones and Thorns (Threats of Sky and Sea #3) by Jennifer Ellision

Book details:

Fall of Thrones and Thorns
by Jennifer Ellision
(Threats of Sky and Sea #3)
Publication date: September 27th 2016
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult


Synopsis:

War hurtles in, a typhoon over the sea.

After Bree’s life was torn apart, Nereidium had represented a haven to her. A place that—if she could save it—was beyond the King’s reach.

And, at last, she’s arrived upon its shores. But things in Nereidium are not what they should be.

The land is plagued by a rash of mysterious earthquakes, the likes of which it’s never known. The governors are distracted by old traditions, while Bree and her friends grapple with changing identities and the sense that the longer they wait to take action… the greater the danger from Egria grows.

Bree is tired of living under the shadow of King Langdon’s power. And she’s tired of waiting for him to be the first to act.

In this final chapter of the Threats of Sky and Sea series, it all comes down to Nereidium or Egria. To Bree or the King. It’s kill… or be killed.

And not everyone will escape the battle unscathed.

4 out of 5 (very good)


In the third and final book in the Threats of Sky and Sea trilogy, we join Bree where we left her. The story continues on seamlessly, filled once again with action and adventure, hope and betrayal. 

There is a whole lot less romance in this book. Now I know that it is just classed as YA Fantasy, but there was quite a build up in the first book, with hints in the second, and pretty much nothing in this one. I'm not saying it's a bad thing, just a tad unexpected. Also, that ending!!

Told from multiple perspectives, the writing is smooth and the plot moves along at a fair pace. With no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow, and building up to the climax, this is a book that you can lose yourself in easily. 

Thoroughly enjoyable and definitely recommended by me.

5 out of 5 (exceptional)


I love Young Adult/Coming of Age Fantasy and this one ticked all my boxes. It tells the story of Bree, a young girl, daughter to the local innkeeper. It starts off in her home of Abeline but moves to the capital city, indeed to the royal 'palace' itself.

With secrets, mysteries and double-crossing every step of the way, Bree finds herself adrift in a new world; unable to trust anyone, even her own father. She still loves him and will defend him to anyone, but Bree now admits that he hasn't been honest with her and that shakes her to her very foundations.

It is excellent when the mere mention of a character makes you shudder, and that is exactly what happened to me every time the King makes an appearance. He is thoroughly loathsome and yet I can't wait to read more about him.

There is a hint of romance in this book, between the four main (young) characters. It is enough to keep the tension going, without overshadowing the main story.

Exceptionally well-written, with no editing or grammatical errors that I found (although I will admit to being swept away with the story so I wasn't really on the lookout for them either!). This is an excellent start to a Fantasy series that I will definitely be continuing. Highly recommended.

We rejoin Bree as she is escaping from the castle. Immediately, we are back in the action. And if, like me, you can't remember everything from the first book then don't worry. Jennifer Ellision has managed to recap the important parts of book 1 without losing anything in this book. 

Told from both Bree and Cadan's point of view, they don't actually spend that much time together, much to my disappointment! I adored them as a couple in book 1, but they both have things they need to do in this book, and they do it separately. There are still scenes with them in, which are delightful.

Lots of action going on in this book, as well as internal angst. Bree is struggling with her Throwing abilities. Egria is at the start of civil war. People will be lost, and others found.

Excellently written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow, this 5-star fantasy will whisk you away to a different world. Amazing reading and highly recommended by me.
