When word that Yelena is a soulfinder – able to capture and release souls - spreads like wildfire, people grow uneasy. Already Yelena’s unusual abilities and past have set her apart. As the Council debates Yelena’s fate, she receives a disturbing message: a plot is rising against her homeland, led by a murderous sorcerer she has defeated before...

Honour sits Yelena on a path that will test the limits of her skills, and the hope of reuniting with her beloved spurs her onward. Her journey is fraught with allies, enemies, lovers and would – be assassins, each of questionable loyalty.

Yelena will have but one chance to prove herself – and save the land she holds dear.

It’s always a little sad when you are holding the last book of a series or trilogy in your hands. But the last book, though it wasn’t quite a cliff hanger, you weren’t hanging on to what was going to come next. You really needed to know. Need the book.
Though, it’s a little odd me saying that when this was the, like, 100th time I’ve read this book, but still, it’s been awhile and just like the first time, I got hooked into the trilogy.

This book starts off in the school. And quickly turns out into a man hunt for Yelena. Who then has to find a way to get back into the school and save everyone.
It’s got a lot of loss, betrayal, love and pain, both physically and mentally.

I loved this book, I’m not sure if it’s my fav, but it’s a great end to the series. Keeping them all the same while letting them grow, it might have taken her longer but she finally understood.

It’s hard to go any more into the story without giving away this book, and the whole trilogy with it. But it’s one of the greater books that I have read.
Though again, don’t go into this thinking you’ll get fantasy, I’ve read some of them, I’m not a fan, they are so full of world building that it’s almost to difficult to want to keep up (but then I’m lazy), it’s not completely a romance—so light fantasy.
Anyway, I’m a fan, and it’s a series to push. So pick it up and give it a go.
