King Soren shows why he was chosen as King and brings together the three totally different clans to fight first against the renegade Dragons and then the bigger threat. They stand together and united they defeat all comers.
I loved this series very much and would highly recommend it to all.
I cannot recommend this Trilogy enough to anyone who is into epic fantasy novels that are not all sunshine and lollipops, but gritty, heart breaking and just, real, as real a fantasy novel can be that is! Ha! But in all seriousness, Meg Cowley does a great job at bringing her story to life on the pages of her novels. She has definitely become one of my favorite authors to watch for.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC.
Then I started thinking. Ranting was no good. I wasn’t achieving anything. I was being too much Barclay and not enough Eve or Soren! So I actually got off my metaphorical backside, put my time and energy where my mouth was and started contacting volunteering opportunities in my local area, and quickly signed myself up for a few before I lapsed back into my customary apathy.
So I can honestly say that The Shattered Crown made a real-life impact for the better!
That noted, it is also an excellent fantasy read and the perfect finale for the Caledan series: two apparently indestructible foes; allies so far at odds with each other that they struggle to find any common ground; and a solution that will only work if they can unite despite it all. Let’s just say I picked it right back up after I got off the phone!
I particularly liked the addition of the bond between Myrkdraga and Lorellei and how that began and developed, as a perfect example of how deep-seated prejudice can be overcome by proximity, understanding, and shared adversity.
It was also interesting to see how Eve and Soren grew from the first to the last books, as their outlook and decision-making skills displayed greater maturity and wisdom. We saw them develop from naive teens to strong and stable rulers, and that brought with it a sense of almost parental pride in their journey; we saw them grow up.
Finally, the overall pacing was well set, so the tension built up to the climax of the action, then the resolution was complete and left the reader feeling satisfied and ‘finished’. There is an especially touching closure for one of my favourite characters of the whole series (no spoilers here!), which got me quite emotional, but in a happy way because it felt right. For the majority of the characters though, it was clear that their world would continue on without our observation. I much preferred this balance to leaving too many loose threads trailing, or severing them all and wrapping things with a bow on top…a few minor issues outstanding, but with the confidence that the characters are now equipped with the skills and experience to face whatever else comes.
