The author has done a wonderful job of educating and aging his characters, perfectly fitting the situations they have survived. I hope this world will be revisited someday.
As the title (Ardalia #3) suggests, this is the third and final installment in the Ardalia series (I'm so smart I scare myself sometimes). Having read and thoroughly enjoyed the first two books The Breath of Aoles (#1) and Turquoise Water (#2), I was eager to read the conclusion. Mr. Spade provided an exciting conclusion to his trilogy.
The Flames of the Immolated continued the stories of several characters we met in the first books. As I said in my review of the second book, the characters continued to grow, no flat, stale characters here. The complexity of the story is incredible, balancing so many story lines and maintaining a coherent story is a real achievement.
The Flames of the Immolated is most definitely not a stand alone story. Refreshing yourself by skimming the second book would probably be beneficial, of course I didn't do that and I don't think I suffered for it. The story is so rich with unique characters both good and bad that I was left in awe of Alan Spade's imagination. That one writer could come up with such a variety of beings to populate his story just blows me away, let alone the fact that he is able to weave them all into such a riveting story.
The trilogy is a "quest to save the world" story that actually involves the whole world, not just a small corner that many of the worlds inhabitants don't even know about. Everybody knows what's going on.
The story is full of action, violence, horror, evil, good, love, romance, loss, redemption, magic, greed, dog and cats living together (okay, not that), but you get the idea. So much more than can be shared in a short (yeah, yeah) review.
Alan Spade does not spare our emotions at all. There are emotional highs and lows, no one is safe, no one can rest on their past achievements, and no one gets things the way they want them. This kept me as a reader on my toes, forget trying to predict the story.
Finally (yes I'm almost done), My favorite part of the book is the final two chapters, not because they were the climax, but because they weren't. So often quest stories end with the end of the quest. I'm always grateful to the authors who give us a strong epilogue. Even though the last two chapters are not officially designated as such, they are a completely satisfying epilogue. So, huge (YUUUGE) thanks to Alan Spade for The Flames of the Immolated. Enjoy!
Picking up where the Turquoise Water ended this book takes our intrepid adventurers to the end of their world and back again, through more betrayal, loss, complete despair, grief and disbelief to the utter euphoria once they realised what they had ultimately achieved. We see again a story of sacrifice and team work achieve the seemingly impossible to bring each well written character through hardship and deprivation into a new beginning that brings hope to all.
This is definitely a series of books that will appeal to all lovers of epic fantasy and magic and I heartily recommend this book and the whole series to any adventurer of any age!
I was provided with an e-copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review
This book starts off where the second book left off. These are not stand alone novels, you must read the whole trilogy in order to not be confused. I do recommend reading this epic fantasy trilogy.
This trilogy has betrayal, despair, grief, total dis belief, and love and happiness. What more could you ask for. I loved it. I can't wait to see what Alan Spade writes next. Wonderful imagination.
Don't worry there will be no spoilers here.....
I really enjoyed the third book which picks up right where the second book left off and the story continues from there. If you enjoyed the first two books I would highly recommend reading this book as well. If you have not read the first two books than what are you waiting for? This is definitely not a series where you can pick up any book and figure out what is going on, if you do not read it from the beginning you will quickly find yourself very confused.
I cannot wait to read more from Alan Spade.
