    wait, wait WHAT- that cannot be the end. I- I don't know how to feel. that moment when the ending prevents a book from being a 5 stars *sadness* I'll start off with this—RHEN. DESERVED. MORE. I refuse to believe that this is the end of the Cursebreakers world. There literally has to be more because that ending did not resolve everything and if I'm being honest, I'd say the only people who truly got their happy ending are Grey and Lia Mara...and I could care less about them (I know, ✨unpopula wait, wait WHAT- that cannot be the end. I- I don't know how to feel. that moment when the ending prevents a book from being a 5 stars *sadness* I'll start off with this—RHEN. DESERVED. MORE. I refuse to believe that this is the end of the Cursebreakers world. There literally has to be more because that ending did not resolve everything and if I'm being honest, I'd say the only people who truly got their happy ending are Grey and Lia Mara...and I could care less about them (I know, ✨unpopular opinion✨). Not saying that Rhen and Harper didn't get their HEA but like there's still so many questions I have for them AND IT ENDED WITHOUT ASDFBGGDSAMNMBSBDAJSSDNAM IM ANGRY. I WANTED A DIFFERENT OUTCOME FOR RHEN *sobs* That's probably just me and my unhealthy obsession with Rhen though. If I looked at this in a more critical POV, Brigid really did end this series in a realistic way, where not everything is fixed and everyone's happy. ughhh still doesn't mean I have to like it. Rhen deserved more and I will forever keep saying that until he gets it. meanwhile I'll be waiting for when she releases info on a spin off or something (🛑There shall be SPOILERS from the previous books...you have been warned🛑) •❅──────✧❅♕❅✧──────❅• "Yield to yourself. Yield to forgiveness. Yield to happiness. Yield to this moment. It's not hers. It's yours. It's mine." "It's ours." Tell me that isn't just one of the sweetest speeches in history? And that scene--ohmygod I wanted to burst into tears who am i kidding? i totally did From book 1, Rhen and Harper have had my heart and that will never change. They both made terrible mistakes, but what matters more is that they learned and changed for the better. Especially Rhen. I know many despised Rhen ofc i didnt after whipping both Grey and our little cinnamon roll, Tycho in A Heart So Fierce and Broken—and what he did was definitely unforgiveable, even after learning that Lilith was behind making him do that. I'm not making excuses for his actions, but I believe you have to look at it a bit differently and see it from the other side of the story. We didn't get Rhen's POV in AHSFAB so we wouldn't know, but here...we see how much it pained him to do that to his brother and best friend, but in the end, Rhen would've done it all over again if it meant Harper was safe from Lilith. And I respect that.🥺 That's true love right there even if it did harm others in the process. So yes, I absolutely loved how many scenes we got with Harper and Rhen as you could tell from my status updates asdfghjhfgdsaf my heart is so happy thinking about them even now. Also, where Harper might've looked all docile and unlike her usual self in AHSFAB, she definitely wasn't like that here. It was the Harper we all know and love who didn't let Rhen get away with *ahem* certain actions and I lived for those moments. AND I WILL NEVER FORGET RHEN BLUSHING N E V E R I'm gonna keep rereading that scene until I die. It was amazing.😭💖 •❅──────✧❅♕❅✧──────❅• If my people must see strength, then we need to show them ours. Lia Mara definitely grew a lot from the previous book. She still longs for peace between nations and all people, and although she has so many come at her for being too kind, too fair, and too just -- which leads to being 'weak', Lia Mara doesn't let that change her ways and continues acting as the queen she wants to be for her people. Strength is shown in many ways, and Lia Mara truly showed that to be possible. And then there's Grey. As someone who started off being a royal guard and now this...truly a huge leap from the first book. He's become much more confident in himself and a great leader to those around him (tho that's not really surprising...he's Grey). No longer does he always follow orders given from others, but he gives the orders. But one thing that hasn't changed is that he's still ~Scary Grey~ and the big softie everyone fell in love with. but not me ofc, my heart belongs to Rhen Too bad I couldn't care much about his and Lia Mara's POVs though. I feel like AVSBAD was really for Rhen & Harper and I'M 100% OKAY WITH THAT.🥰 Every time I got to their POVs, my heart would do a happy dance and whenever I was not reading from their POVs, I'd literally skip ahead to see how many more pages were left until I got to be back in Harper/Rhen's POV (yes, I know I'm sad). Living for their scenes is what I do✌ I swear to god, I was seriously going to give this 5 stars and move it on my all-time-fav shelf bUT THAT ENDING- aghhh I despise that ending with every fibre of my being. Why, brigid, why? (view spoiler)[DON'T LOOK AT THIS IF YOU HAVEN'T AVSBAD --------> okay, but I'm probably getting mad over something stupid BUT Rhen lost his kingdom, lost his status as king, LOST HIS EYE, is scarred, nobody in his kingdom likes him, doesn't know what to do with his life now....and GREY gets his own kingdom, everyone loves him, he's perfectly fine with no noticeable scars (unlike Rhen *sobs*), he and Lia Mara are going to have a baby, he's king....I DON'T LIKE THE UNFAIRNESS OF THIS BUT I UNDERSTAND THAT IT WAS REALISTIC CONSIDERING WHAT HAPPENED IN BOOK 2. RHEN, MY BABY😭😭 And another point someone made me realize -- why go through all that trouble in book 1 with Rhen struggling through breaking the curse, suffering from Lilith's torments, and trying to save and rule his kingdom...ONLY TO LOSE ALL OF THAT TO GREY. *rage* (hide spoiler)] But I still love this series so much and for that, I shall continue praying there's a spin-off. Actually, I bet there is going to be a spin-off -- and if I'm right, let it be known that I am a wickedly, brilliant fortune teller. and if I'm wrong...well rip💔 Oh Grey, Lia Mara, Rhen, and Harper...I'd say goodbye, but I don't believe this is the last we'll see each other. If it is altho i wont allow that, then my final words are: FOR THE GOOD OF EMBERFALL🔥 And down with Syhl Shallow.🙂 (*cough* HarperxRhen for life) •❅──────✧❅♕❅✧──────❅• Pre-read Review ~ January 22, 2021: ASDFGHJGFDSAGSAS MY COPY CAME IN 4 DAYS EARLY THANK YOU, AMAZON For once, amazon hasn't failed me with my preorder :' ) IM SO SCARED. RHEN MY LOVE, PLEASE BE OKAY. dammit, I have to finish my other book first

    well, it might have been a mistake to have had high hopes for this. i gave the previous book the benefit of the doubt and told myself i wouldnt judge everything until i read this, hoping for redemption, but man. this was rough. i mean, if this was a book all on its own, completely unrelated to ‘a curse so dark and lonely,’ this is objectively a very good book. the writing is great, the pacing is decent, and the characters are complex. but i have to look at the bigger picture. i dont want to spoil well, it might have been a mistake to have had high hopes for this. i gave the previous book the benefit of the doubt and told myself i wouldnt judge everything until i read this, hoping for redemption, but man. this was rough. i mean, if this was a book all on its own, completely unrelated to ‘a curse so dark and lonely,’ this is objectively a very good book. the writing is great, the pacing is decent, and the characters are complex. but i have to look at the bigger picture. i dont want to spoil anything but if you take the characters from book one and compare them to the characters in this (and even book two), they arent the same. and i think omitting two vital POVs from book two weakened this series. there is sooo much back-tracking and explaining done in this because it was missing from the previous installment that so much page time is literally wasted. and for what seems like nothing in the end. also, i have no idea why this is being sold as the conclusion for the series because there is still sooo much left unresolved. like, a new issue is literally added within the last chapter and all of the sudden the series is done and over? its just a very bizarre choice. anyway, BK is still a good author and i wont hesitate to pick up her books, i think this series just went in the wrong direction and unfortunately suffered because of it. ↠ 3 stars

Quick Stats: Overall: 5/5 Stars Characters: 4.5/5 Setting: 4/5 Writing: 5/5 Plot and Themes: 5/5 Awesomeness Factor: 5/5 Review in a Nutshell: A Vow So Bold and Deadly is exactly what I wanted in a finale. It was epic, full of twists and turns that kept me on the edge of my seat, with amazing characters that I absolutely adored. // Content Warning: Violence, Death, Torture, Chronic Illness, Suicide Mention, War Themes, Murder, PTSD // Release Date: 1/26/2021 Publisher: Bloomsbury YA Page Count: 416 Premise: A Vow So Bold and Deadly is the final book in the Cursebreakers series, following all four of our previous POV characters as they head towards that inevitable conclusion that we’ve been dreading. - Initial Thoughts - I was scared to read this book. After A Heart so Fierce and Broken, I was left conflicted and concerned. The direction the plot was going in, and how some characters were treated, really bothered me, and I knew that the final book in this series will make me love it, or hate it. I love it. What scared me most about A Heart so Fierce and Broken was how it seemed to hint at a character having PTSD, but instead of addressing it, they made that character seem more villainous. A Vow So Bold and Deadly continues to show that characters struggle with PTSD, but the handling of it was so much better than in the previous book. I don’t want to spoil anything, but if you were upset about the direction that character went in in A Heart So Fierce and Broken, you’ll feel better after reading A Vow So Bold and Deadly. - Characters - But let's talk about all of our characters. We spend time with each of the main four protagonists in this book. In my opinion, Harper and Rhen stole the show. There was so much going on in their point of view, and I loved hearing more of their side of what happened in the previous books and how they’re dealing with the decisions they made. There was so much depth and development for the both of them (especially Rhen), and I couldn’t have been happier. Lia Mara and Gray also get point of view chapters, and I did enjoy them, but I found their development to be a little weaker in comparison. Although, to be honest, it’d be pretty hard to compare to Harper and Rhen’s story here. - Plot - One of the things that I loved most about the first two books in this series was the addictive pacing and plot. Well, I can confirm: A Vow So Bold and Deadly still has it. I read this book in two sittings, but I definitely could have read it in one. I was glued to the page, always eager to see what was going to happen next. There were also fantastic twists in this book that I never could have predicted, that made me want to throw the book in shock. - Conclusion - Pros- Great character development, addictive, fun twists Cons- I wish I cared more about Gray and Lia Mara than I did (but I know some people adore them so this definitely won’t be a problem for everyone) Overall- 5/5 stars. A Vow So Bold and Deadly was exactly what I was hoping it would be. While I’m so sad this series is over, I couldn’t imagine a better conclusion.

    I AM SO DISAPPOINTED I MIGHT CRY 😭😭 I really feared this was what was going to happen with this book. I LOVED the first one SO MUCH! I loved Harper, Rhen and Grey. They second book caught me by surprise and didn't fully live up to the first but I was okay with it. But it also made me fear for the conclusion of this series. It made me fear, that the magic of the first book would be completely lost. Sadly, for me at least, that fear came true. 👎 What I Disliked 👎 Lia Mara: I was okay with Lia Mara in I AM SO DISAPPOINTED I MIGHT CRY 😭😭 I really feared this was what was going to happen with this book. I LOVED the first one SO MUCH! I loved Harper, Rhen and Grey. They second book caught me by surprise and didn't fully live up to the first but I was okay with it. But it also made me fear for the conclusion of this series. It made me fear, that the magic of the first book would be completely lost. Sadly, for me at least, that fear came true. 👎 What I Disliked 👎 Lia Mara: I was okay with Lia Mara in book two. She wasn't my favourite character, but I sympathised with her quest to be a more benevolent ruler than her mother and to bring peace to her people. But in this book she let me down completely. I couldn't like her because she never 'got into character' so to speak. She didn't step up to the plate. She didn't do what she set out to do because she was too busy second guessing herself and letting others make the tough decisions for her. It didn't sit well with me. I felt like she had such potential to be the greatest character, but Kemmerer let her down. Almost as if Kemmerer didn't really like her either... Grey: Grey confuses me. He has for a while. I just don't understand his reasoning or his decision making process. It doesn't seem logical to me. I can't follow how he gets there. I simply don't understand him as a character. Rhen: Now. Rhen is a real problem. I absolutely loved him in the first book. Absolutely hated him in the second. And now, with this book, we are somehow meant to love him again? It feels like a split personality. It doesn't make any sense. And when we here learn why Rhen was so terrible in the second book, it doesn't even come close to making up for his behaviour. I am deeply conflicted by this. I like character development, but there has to be a reason for it and it has to seem plausible. Rhen is not plausible. Underwhelming: All in all this was just... underwhelming. There was too much talking and not enough walking, so to speak. This was definitely a character driven book, and when I didn't like 3 out of 4 characters it probably isn't so surprising that I am underwhelmed... Follow me for more book loving content!

No order One poor choice shouldn’t undo a thousand good ones. So buckle up everyone. I'm gonna tell you a story about a series that could have been full five stars but the end takes one of those shining stars away. This is me trying to get over that end, if you can even call it an end. So much loss, and yet there’s always room for more. Let me get one thing cleared. I really love this series. I was so connected with the characters from the first book itself that I remember I binge read the first two books and was unable to sleep after the end of the second. I craved for this book then. And so whatever I say, it's because I didn't get the end I think this beautiful series deserved. “I wonder if he would see me as a failure—and I also wonder if I would want a man like that to see me as a success.” So if we get to the story, there was not a single moment I felt bored. Maybe the Lia Mara POV? But even then, I wanted to read the next page and the next. The plot is that engaging. The writing that beautiful. It is wonderfully crafted. The Characters Prince Rhen I’m realizing that I got so caught up in the poor choices you made I forgot that you knew how to make good ones. Rhen is and will always remain the best thing of this series. The way he took all the brute of Lillith's torture to protect his people and Harper really hurt the deepest part of me. And after everything that happened, how can he NOT get the ending he deserved. Like what is even the point of book 1 and 2 if we are here. I think he redeemed himself plenty before reaching here. And it's not like he was the only one with poor choices. He suffered from Lillith's torture. He was the one whose guards and family were killed. He lost an eye. He lost Harper for a while. He lost his friend. He begged to be killed multiple times. And then he lost his kingdom? The only thing that had kept him going for so long and would have even had him going through everything again if he had a chance he could protect it. What did Grey lose? A game of dice???? (Okay. I'm feeling a bit better after that) Harper “Go ahead,” she whispers. “Take me home. Let’s see how long you live on my side.” Harper is still my cool badass girl. I love her. Literally everything about her makes her one of the best female protagonists!! She can be kind and helping but when necessary she can just pin the scariest enchantress to the ground😂. Grey Language and politics don’t matter once a blade is flying. All that matters here is skill. If you leave behind how he went from I-dont-want-your-throne to can-you-be-my-advisor, I actually like him. Definitely not the same extent as Rhen (that's immeasurable) but I liked how he did have something for Rhen. How he did want to help in the middle of the impossible situation. Lia Mara I am not my mother I really can't find ANYTHING other for her. Wait. Is she even a character with a development. You want peace. I get it lady and I respect it. But just repeating that again and again with null actions doesn't make it happen. She is such a bland character. I might have even skimmed through her chapters. The relationships Rhen and Harper “Yield to yourself. Yield to forgiveness. Yield to happiness. Yield to this moment. It’s not hers. It’s yours. It’s mine. It’s ours.” After a very long time, I got to read a really beautiful relationship. I was begging for just one moment more between these two. In spite of the choices they made they stood together and understood each other. Still, I didn't get the proper END I wanted!!! Grey and Lia Mara Forgive me but I don't have a quote here. It was just meh. They had their sweet moments but no. Not for me. Rhen and Grey Grey clasps my hand, his grip tight. “You and me, Brother. For the good of all.” Despite everything that happened between them, all those betrayals, stupid choices, miscommunications or lack of communications, these two have a beautiful relationship. Both feel for each other. It was made clear from the very start that neither of them wanted a war. My eyes might have moistened at their reunion (tho that may have more to do with Rhen on his knees yielding and begging to be killed) Grey and Harper “As I said once before, I could have chosen no one better, my lady.” That is one friendship that's done so well. I really loved all those moments they talked because it felt like Harper knew Grey's depths more than Lia Mara. Overall? If I was not THAT mad at the ending, this was definitely a solid 5 star and I still might have cut that 1 star more because of emotions rather than being realistic. Because many would agree with that ending. I, for the life of me, can't. It hurts. The way Rhen's having an existential crisis after EVERYTHING he suffered from. It just effing hurts. “You once told me that when the world seems darkest, there exists the greatest opportunity for light.” She nods at me in the mirror, but then her eyes fill again. “Sometimes I worry that the light can be doused too easily.” “Then we just light it again,” Well, this rant certainly made me feel better. Silver hell! I'm so torn right now😖 RTC

    What the actual fuck? Did I read the same book as everyone else? Fair warning, this is a super long, ranty and spoilery review. Yet, let the record reflect that I loved ACSDAL. The tl;dr is that: Every character in this book is an idiot. Oh, and watching Rhen getting cucked into oblivion made my blood boil. I'm so sad that this story became a series when it should have remained a standalone. I really didn't enjoy AHSFAB but I was so invested in the characters and confident in BK's writing ability What the actual fuck? Did I read the same book as everyone else? Fair warning, this is a super long, ranty and spoilery review. Yet, let the record reflect that I loved ACSDAL. The tl;dr is that: Every character in this book is an idiot. Oh, and watching Rhen getting cucked into oblivion made my blood boil. I'm so sad that this story became a series when it should have remained a standalone. I really didn't enjoy AHSFAB but I was so invested in the characters and confident in BK's writing ability that I still managed to look forward to this. We return to Emberfall and Syhl Shallow as the 60-day clock ticks down to when Grey plans to invade Emberfall and claim his rightful place on Emberfall's throne. This is where I make a case for recaps at the start of a book à la Jay Kristoff's Nevernight Chronicle. I have loaned the first two books to a friend so I couldn't check back on any plot points to understand what Grey's claim was . . . until it struck me that he doesn't have one. I need someone to explain to me why he's the rightful heir? No-one actually attempted to confirm his provenance, and even if he is indeed Rhen's older brother, he's a bastard and therefore has no right to the throne at all, right? I'm not saying that's fair, but if the law works differently here, a sentence from BK would have cleared that up. Secondly, why does he deserve the throne? What are his qualifications? Everyone seems to be in agreement that Grey should be king, but why? Because he's a nice guy? Well, if that's the only criteria, then any fella from Hutchins Forge to the Blackrock Plains can stake a claim. Tycho is a sweet lad, can't he have a crack at it? I'd make the case that actually, Grey ISN'T a nice guy at all. Everyone in the book seems to forget that Grey betrayed Rhen. He fled and withheld information that could compromise national security (bear in mind that Rhen has no idea that it's supposedly Grey who is the heir). It felt like someone was lamenting Grey's whipping with every second breath, but this was the consequence of Grey not trusting his friend to at least hear him out. At that point, Grey didn't want the throne anyway! We're beaten over the head with Grey's perceived loyalty in ACSDAL, and yet betrays Rhen for this? It seems very OOC for a usually rational Grey to think fleeing and declaring war on your best friend is better than risking his ire by confessing the "truth" about his parentage. His coldness towards Harper was wholly unecessary - why is he so pissed at her? Let's not forget she was visibly heartbroken over the discord between the boys and Grey has Harper to thank for his freedom. So, he's off at Syhl Shallow with Lia Mara and every chapter from either of their POVs was painful. To me, they have zero chemistry and I struggle to believe that someone as disciplined and driven as Grey would have any interest in her at all. I love smut and I skimmed their sex scene, which of course results in a baby. Lia Mara is nice, did you know that? Niceness is a laudable trait, but on its own offers fuck all. I don't blame her army for not respecting her. I respected them less when they started listening to a word she said. She won the crown as a result of perfectly lobbing a knife at her mam (despite having no prior experience with such a thing) and then wants everyone to be best pals. She is totally toothless and incapable of doing anything without Grey and/or her sister propping her up. I understand that Lia Mara is meant to serve as a balm to the Celeanas and Mias of the YA world, but being compassionate and fair are only a strength when paired with competency. She started stamping her feet a bit at the end, and I wasn't convinced by all her battle-hardened warriors coming immediately to heel. I was honestly hoping Nolla Verin would usurp her, because as unpalatable as she is, it'd at least be interesting. And then we come to Harper and Rhen. Much as I was pleased to get more of their POVs, I wanted to hear more from them. I actually enjoyed the progression of their relationship; fractured and untrusting at the beginning, and ugly conversations that felt realistic. I felt like in the end they were both trying to be better for each other and for Emberfall even though it felt impossible and sad. It really irritated me that Harper was so naïve about asking for Grey's help, but beyond that, I felt she was true to character and remained likeable. The way BK addresses Harper's cerebral palsy remains very positive, too. As for Rhen, whilst this feels like an unpopular opinion, I don't believe he deserves almost anything that happens to him, and the things he has done wrong I feel he is sincerely contrite for. He's lived centuries forced to terrorise his kingdom whilst coping with the death of his family for *checks notes* sleeping with a woman in whom he lost interest? Well, if that's so dreadful, let's look at his track record since breaking the curse: he readies his forces as appropriate and tries to win favour by visiting his nobles, yet doesn't take any drastic military action that would unnecessarily risk his force or Grey's. He is tormented by a psychopath and intentionally bears the brunt of her torture as far as being actually mutilated, begs for the opportunity to once again become the monster of his nightmares despite the immense personal cost, kills the enchantress causing all this strife and then graciously accepts Grey as sovereign. WHAT It absolutely disgusted me that Grey steamrolled over Rhen like that. Rhen's kingdom wasn't in tatters because he was hopeless, rather that the kingdom had been cursed. He had the potential to be a great ruler, was trained for it and accepted the responsibility. He also loved his people dearly, whereas we never hear about Grey feeling any duty to the people of Emberfall. Why oh why couldn't Lia Mara and Grey rule Syhl Shallow and Harper and Rhen rule Emberfall? We would then be assured of a peaceful land with those precious trade routes in tact. The end of the book sees Rhen as a broken and directionless man whom Grey teases as if they're still best pals and has the audacity to be like: "Hey bro, you know I still need you, right?" How dare he?! The one thing that saved AHSFAB was its pacing because it was easy to burn through, but this was a total slog. This feels like a really pointed criticism, but it feels like BK realised that she'd tanked the character development of essentially everyone in AHSFAB and doubled down by gaslighting readers into believing there's a consensus over Grey's goodness and Rhen's awfulness going into this book. I wanted to check previous books to understand how I'd got it so wrong. I honestly resented every minute of reading this, because each page eroded the very genuine affection I felt for Harper, Rhen and Grey's story in Book 1.

Also squeeze Lilith. Around the neck. Hard. - Lia Mara to "act like a queen" not a 24/7 insecure whinnying crybaby princess. - Grey and Lia Mara to rule Syhl Shallow together.

Wtf was that ending? - I refuse to believe this is how the book ends. This book is a mess. (PLEASE TELL ME THIS WAS JUST A CRUEL JOKE AND THIS IS NOT HOW THE BOOK ENDS) (hide spoiler)] Life was better before this book happened. Now all I want in my life is Lilith to come back. Stab Lia Mara, Grey, Rhen and Harper for atleast a million years. take Emberfall and Sylh Shallow for herself. THE END.

I am one that never reads long excerpts or if a writer has a chapter available early on, I never read it. I want to read the whole book at once. Though since I grabbed this from Netgalley I figure I have to honor my commitments and do at least somewhat of a review. The sample definitely whet my appetite for the book.

It has all our favorite characters Rhen, Harper, Grey and Lia Mara. It also has Iisak the scraver, Harper’s brother Jake and Tycho. It basically takes off where A Heart so Fierce and Broken left things. Rhen and Grey are on opposite sides. I will read the book, but I am not sure when I will get to it. Though I can’t wait to find out how things turn out. The sample was not enough to give a rating so I am not putting any stars on this review.

Or eveolve into somehting better, I don't particularly care. Grey and Lia....well what do I even say? I just love them. But this excerpt was so ominous on that front. It seems like they're growing apart in the wake of Lia's rule. And I don't like that either. This is horrible. I for one, cannot wait to read the rest of this book!

This was a satisfying ending to the trilogy but I have to say I was waiting for the final battle. I was expecting a huge final battle where Grey uses his magic against Lilith and all but instead Rhen was turned into the monster once again, killed Lilith and transformed back into his normal form. Again I actually liked the ending quite a lot actually, it’s just that I was just excepting something different. Let’s start with Harper and Rhen.. I was very happy that their POVs were back cause I truly missed them in the last book. I really loved the dynamic of their relationship in this book and I’m glad Rhen is back to his senses. I loved how Harper supported Rhen through everything and of course didn’t fail to impress me with her courage, I mean she literally faced Lilith without fear and dragged herself to Syhl shallow while injured to try and save Rhen. Also Rhen deserved more, it’s not that he didn’t get a happy ending but I felt like after all he’s been through he deserved more. I mean he lost a freaking eye, he deserved better than that 😕 It was very interesting to see Grey and Rhen dealing with the conflict on whether to got to war or not and to see how much it hurt them. The development Grey went through from the start of the first book is absolutely incredible, his character changed so much and we love to see it. In AHSFAB I wasn’t a big fan of Grey and Lia Mara’s relationship but in this book I enjoyed seeing it a lot more. Lia Mara and Grey truly got their happy ending. Overall this was very enjoyable, I mean I read in 24 hours but I’m a lil disappointed Rhen didn’t get a happier ending, maybe an ending where he didn’t lose a freaking eye.

What started as a Beauty and the Beast retelling, has grown into something bigger and better in the course of this series. Something truly heart-wrenching and beautiful. If you’re into YA fantasy, you should definitely pick this up! (And if you’ve liked the first two books, you’ve undoubtedly already put this on your TBR.) Brigid Kemmerer‘s prose is beautiful, her dialogues well-written and witty; the way she casually disperses truths deep and meaningful. There is this sense of longing and melancholy her writing instills, which keeps an emotional hold on head and heart – all of which make for the best form of blissful escapism. No need to think; just feel and join four (mostly) equally lovable characters – Rhen and Harper, Grey and Lia Mara – on their journey. I’m already planning a reread via the excellent audiobooks. (I also recommend her Elemental series, by the way, though Cursebreakers will remain my favorite.) Now to A Vow so Bold and Deadly: There are equal parts of action/plot twists and character arcs/relationship development which proved a nice balance. As far as characters are concerned, I was a bit irritated, though, with Lia Mara being so afraid when I remember her being so strong before (will need to confirm after rereading book 2) and Harper‘s naïveté and impulsivity, her seeming inability to consider the consequences of her actions (when will she learn?!), made me want to shake her sometimes. Still, their flaws made the characters believable and real; characters need a chance to grow, after all, and they get theirs. As for our heroes, Grey and Rhen, I love them both. At times, I might favor Grey a little; don’t know what that says about me but I have a thing for stoic, confident, determined dudes who manage to not betray any emotion. (Well, in fiction anyway.) Rhen, however, is dealt quite a hand in this book and my heart broke for him. That leads me to the ending. Without spoiling anything, the narrative leads to what has felt inevitable and thus the ending is fitting. I will say, however, that it doesn’t feel like an absolute ending. Matters are resolved, yes, but there are some loose ends which makes me hope for another book arc (*fingers crossed*). All in all, a worthy finish to an amazing series – with the potential for more books to come. Yay!

    This was a beautiful conclusion to one of my favorite series. I'm left a little sad that it's over, yet deeply satisfied with how it all came together at the end. I'm always intrigued by the villian in a story. I love a good villian that really deserves the reader's disgust, yet sometimes I feel they are a bit lacking and not quite believable. I felt like the villian in this story was truly despicable. She really crawled under my skin and it was a relief when she finally met her end.

    Well, this has been everything. I’ve loved these characters from the first page. As I saw in another review, book 1 was about Harper, book 2 was about Lia Mara, and this one was Rhen and Grey and that is so very accurate. I truly enjoyed getting to be in everyone’s head as this story progressed. Plot wise, it’s still a bit of a slow burn, but mostly because there are a lot of moving pieces and it takes time to get everything into place. I was never bored, always captivated, sometimes surprised. Well, this has been everything. I’ve loved these characters from the first page.

Rhen, Harper, Grey and Lia Mara had very distinct voices and the changes from one perspective to the other flowed smoothly. And 1 full star for Grey's character - he was the only character who put his brain cells together to make sensible decisions that took into consideration everything that was going on and that didn't let his personal wants and feelings cloud his judgement. My big problem with this series has been the departure from the world and characters that were introduced to us in A Curse So Dark and Lonely. The direction the series took did not work for me in any way. Rhen was a terrible person, Harper was reckless and still unable to see things from other people's perspectives unless she was forced to, and Lia Mara let others walk all over her. Grey seemed like the only smart character in the entire novel. The premise here, like in A Heart So Fierce and Broken, also failed me. I once again was not convinced of the reasons people were doing what they did. Rhen keeping secrets from Harper, Lia Mara not standing up for herself, Harper staying with Rhen. Kemmerer didn't develop any of those points in a way that made sense to me--I could always think of another alternative that would solve people's problems and would stop all the war nonsense and the relationship angst. I was also really! angry that the torture Rhen put Grey through was shown as Acceptable and Necessary, but Grey leaving Rhen was framed as a huge betrayal of their bond. Using Lilith as a blanket excuse for all of Rhen's choices was also not! a favorite. And! this book ended with a lot of loose ends? I'm not sure why this was marketed as a conclusion when the final chapters set up more issues for all characters. I don't know if Kemmerer intends to write a spin-off series, but the way things end sure make that sound likely.

I know this was a really highly anticipated book for many people so, hopefully they enjoyed it more than I did. I still gave this a solid three and a half stars and I will give my reasons for that throughout my review. So, let's get to it! Writing I really enjoyed the writing of the last two books in this series and this was not an exception. Kemmerer's writing is great and enjoyable, it was quick and descriptive, keeping the reader engaged throughout. I did wish we got more Harper and maybe less Lia Mara, but I will talk about that later in the characters category. I don't have much more to say about the writing, the book was well-written and clearly, the author put a lot of time into it. Plot The plot of this book was not bad but I was just let down a little by it. To me, It felt as if nothing really happened. From the beginning to the end there was only 2-3 memorable events but, they were interesting so I wasn't too mad. I really didn't like the ending or the outcome for one of the characters. It made me really sad not to see my favourite character get a good, just ending. I'm really hoping for some kind of a novella/short story for them because honestly, they deserve better. Characters I am not ready to say goodbye to some of these characters, particularly Rhen and Harper, because they are amazing and I love them. Not to say I didn't like the other characters, I just felt a different connection with Rhen and Harper and I got attached almost instantly. It took me a while to like scary Grey, but I got there eventually. I loved most of the characters because of how morally grey they were (no pun intended). Lia Mara on the other hand, I felt nothing towards. It felt as if she was only there to get more romance into the book and give Grey someone who made him "soft". She was a little petty, specifically regarding the friendship between Grey and Harper, despite being told multiple times that there was nothing romantic about their relationship, she continued to think that there was some "unfinished business" and the constant jealousy frustrated me. However, I didn't hate her and she wasn't a bad character overall, she just needed to get her priorities straight. And that's it! I recommend this to anyone who enjoyed the last books, but I warn; this book was just not as good as ACSDAL or AHSFAB (in my opinion). I recommend this series to fans of retellings and fantasy books with romantic subplots. Thank you for reading my review and I hope it helped! **Disclaimer** This is all personal opinion and is in no way intended to harass or offend anyone.

You know how I said I would give Rhen a chance? As glad as I am at the fact that he’s finally come to his bloody senses, I’m still not fond of him. Thank the gods we got a little redemption arc for him. Lia Mara. Ugh. What is with the jealousy around here? I seriously don’t get why these people are so insecure about their loved ones. You love him, he loves you, end of story. Don’t go ruining that with your stupid notions about the Princess of Disi. I don’t know what happened to the characters in this book. It’s just not what I expected. This book was slow in the start. It was still slow in the middle. Then the last three fourths of the book was just a wave of emotions one after the other. I might have cried. MIGHT. But we don’t talk about that. ”She smells like sweat and leather and sunshine,” I’m sorry but how the heck do you smell sunshine? I would really like to know. And does leather have a distinct smell I’m not aware about? I’m disappointed y’all.
