This is a fabulous series ans an incredible world tha DPF has created and I would love to delve into again and find out how the story ends.
Sometimes in a series the quality of the writing, the intensity of the story drops off or goes stale. No so with thes books. The Hollow Crown, if anything, is better than the Cipher. Throught the four books people that are timid become fierce, villians turn into heroes.
In The Turning Tide, you come away hating the staus quo but you are still fiercely loyal to Crosspointe. You become a Rampling.
Do not hesitate to read this series. Then, join the rest of us in hoping and praying for the nest book.
You find yourself hoping your favorite character isn't bumped-off or deformed during the story and you'll mourn along with the characters when decent folks get the axe... and you'll start up a bad guy hit list and wish you had powers of your own, they sooo need to get it!!!

I received a review copy via NetGalley and am choosing to leave a fair and honest review.
Very few authors have the talent to bring a new reader completely into an ongoing saga in book three. Ms. Francis has that talent in spades. I've always enjoyed Ms. Francis, the Horngate Witches and the Path Trilogy being among my favorites. She is a unique and brilliant talent in Fantasy and Urban Fantasy.
The Turning Tide is a fascinating series with a fresh group of characters, including Fairlie, a female metal smith who uses the majickal element of syenth; Ryland, the youngest of two princes who must make a horrible decision; and Shaye, the man in love with Fairlie who has a terrible secret.
Fairlie will be forced to sacrifice to save her kingdom from invaders.
An amazing epic with romance and magic, action and throne politics.

There are some interesting twists and you find out more about Crosspointe's form of government and the individuals concerned - a little shocking, but in some ways based on reality.
I wonder where it will go from here?
