Some authors try to make a bookish soup only with water and bones, building a plot around several not really exciting mysteries. New York Times-bestselling author Mary E. I believed he would be a perfect match for Lia if Kaden wasn't around finally. It meets all my expectations. Look, I'm all for feminism, but in no story would I like a heroine like Lia at least, what she is, in this third book. Parents need to know that 's The Beauty of Darkness is the last book in the fantasy-romance Remnant Chronicles series aimed at mature teen readers. Sorry…but I love Rafe even more.
Given my history with Kaden, I was surprised by the realization that he could actually be likable. Did he even have one? Pearson has meat, vegetables and spices, her pockets are full of surprises, she doesn't have to make show of anything. She also plays an important part in this book. Basically, this book really was about Lia finding her voice and becoming the leader she was meant to be. In this conclusion to the Remnant Chronicles trilogy, traitors must be rooted out, sacrifices must be made, and impossible odds must be overcome as the future of every kingdom hangs in the balance. Strong emotions about books aren't uncommon to me, but The Remnant Chronicles took up a notch. What you're describing here is more of the shortcomings of the first one, but getting worse.
Why don't we start with the worst: Rafe. The former I liked from The Kiss of Deception, the latter became a really stressful factor in this book. With war on the horizon, Lia has no choice but to assume her role as First Daughter, as soldier--as leader. I hope Lia understands how lucky she is to be Rafe's everything. After Lia barely escapes Venda, Rafe brings her to Dalbreck, where he plans to make her his queen. Only their kingdom had no traitors after all. That isn't to say that there weren't some sent out.
There will be a reread in the future because I am not ready to let these characters go. When the king strikes, I'm captured by Lord Irrik. Lia, there are no words for the sheer badassery. At first, he starts off as a great guy and could easily see why Lia fell for him. And I can re-read them for so many times!!!! Now be happy and don't you dare to die not on the same date. But then, the romance is pretty much gone in general, so there's that.
And most of all, the precious, well-developed characters. Lia treats Rafe so badly in the first 75% of the book. Seriously, Rafe deserves a hug! I loved to find other thing aside from Lia, and of course Venda, in his head and heart. What I mean is we mostly got this: He gave Rafe and Kaden a cursory glance, then sighed. She successfully survive the horrible fight when she left Venda…and then travel to Dalbreck with Rafe.
Even music hasn't been able to remedy this hangover. But it grieves me that this Kaden did show up this late, I would love to spend more time with such a wonderful man. We were talking about the world. This series made me feel so many things! Only together can they go to war. His desire to protect or shelter Lia was often too much; it was the cause of many heartbreaking arguments, aka Yelling Sessions.
While she struggles to reach Morrighan and warn them, she finds herself at cross-purposes with Rafe and suspicious of Kaden, who has hunted her down. Mary cuts and heals with them. And that couldn't vanish into thin air. They never gave up and if you truly love someone, if your heart belongs to a person, you never give up. Now, she must survive the winter in the mountains with the Riki, in a village where every neighbor is an enemy, every battle scar possibly one she delivered. I loved to see the world and other people through his eyes. Pearson is the author of eight novels for teens, including The Kiss of Deception, The Heart of Betrayal, and the acclaimed Jenna Fox Chronicles.
You tempt me so, sher Komizar. One moment Kaden was in love with Lia, the next moment he started to think about Pauline. I already touched on this, but I didn't like what Lia evolved into, in this story. Growing up in a backwoods village, her life is lonely and dull. The Beauty Of Darkness was completely amazing! But we also get to see him for the great ruler that he was and the love he truly has for Lia. You don't need this third book, skip it and create your own ending.
Her life will be one of servitude to the sols, the magic-blessed beings who could one day be chosen to become gods. History has a way to repeat itself. Specific to Book 3, much battle strategy is discussed. Still, she loves her child and I think she did the best she could do. I thought maybe I should read a book to help myself fall back asleep. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
