This final book in the trilogy introduces readers to Kat Lockwood, the most guarded and cautious yet temperamental of the three sisters, and Arun, her modern-day warrior whose Norse god has a rather eyebrow-raising ability. It brings the sisters back together. It builds to the highly anticipated climactic finish. And it answers the question of whether the prophecy comes to pass.
The trickster is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to all the things that Kat, her sisters, and all those who contain the soul of a Norse god must face. Giants, elves, pandemonium, a looming battle, a betrayal and a sacrifice are just a sampling of what’s in store for them as they fight to change their fates and the fate of the world.
Kat is the perfect sister to carry this series to its end. She’s protective, loyal and incredibly brave and her strength is what is needed most when everything comes to a head. Even with her bond with Arun, whose personality complements hers so well, her sisters are the most important thing in the world to her. She may not be as easy to connect with as Raven or Coral, as she isn’t as nurturing or as sweet as they are, but once a connection is made it will be a strong one.
Rinda Elliott managed to create three very distinct female main characters whose stories, while interwoven, are strong enough, engaging enough and exciting enough to stand on their own. While nearly identical in appearance, each sister has a very different personality and voice, making each book in this series a thrilling new adventure.
FORESWORN is suspenseful. Its fast pace makes it easily readable in one sitting. Its promise of romance, of deadly battles, of heartbreaking loss make it unputdownable. Its new characters, with new abilities and new challenges, make for a wildly entertaining read. It’s intense. It’s enthralling. It puts you on an emotional roller coaster. It keeps you glued to the page until the very end.
It is a must, must, must read installment in this absolutely amazing and unforgettable series that should only be devoured after the first two books.

Like her sisters, Kat has left on her own to find her warrior. She travels to Wyoming where she finds Arun who is supposed to carry the soul of the god Freyr.
Freyr is a fertility god, so it’s no surprise that Arun is extremely good looking, even to someone like Kat who has never had a thing for “pretty boys.” Arun’s power manifests in his ability to heal dying plants. Arun and his family have been preparing for Ragnarok for years, starting greenhouses and putting together survival packs. When Kat arrives, it’s to find many others like her (those carrying souls) are all converging in this same place. They all seemed to be called here.
Right away Kat knows this is where she’s supposed to be and Arun is the warrior she was supposed to find. In mythology Freyr wields a sword that fights on its own, however, at some point, Freyr is forced to give up his sword. This fact causes him to be killed during Ragnarok by the fire giant Surt.
The prophecy about the norns has always been clear. One will die by the hands of a warrior during Ragnarok. For years, Kat’s norn has shown her she will be the sister that dies….by fire. Probably one of the most interesting parts of the book was how Rinda Elliott dealt with the prophecy. I mean everything up to this point has been coming true so we can only presume that Kat’s vision will come true as well, yet it’s difficult to believe an author would go through with killing off a main character, but Elliott handles that plot point very well indeed.
I liked Kat’s story the best and not only because it’s the culmination of the entire story, but also because I liked Kat the best of the three sisters. She’s gone into everything with the knowledge that she will be the one to die, yet she doesn’t shirk what she feels is her responsibility. Even though she doesn’t fully understand yet what her and her sisters’ parts are in the final battle, she doesn’t stand on the sidelines. She wants to learn, and with the myriad of other warriors showing up along with a couple of Valkyries, there’s plenty of knowledge to go around.
In Forecast readers were given a glimpse of the Dark Elves, one of which claimed to be the girls’ father. That, right away opened up a lot more questions about where exactly the triplets come from. In Foresworn we learn a lot more about the triplets’ mother. I liked the mysterious aspect of their genealogy, and wished it was something that could have been explored more in depth, but I could see how it would detract from the main focus of the story.
This trilogy is the sisters’ story through and through despite also being about their warriors. We finally get to see them together as everyone gathers for the big confrontation. I like the direction the series took, I think everything played out very well, but what I like the most is the ambiguous ending. I’m hoping somewhere down the line we’ll get to see more of Raven, Coral, and Kat.
