Packed with immersive detail, action, romance, and fae lore, and publishing simultaneously in the UK, The Fallen Kingdom brings the Falconer’s story to an epic and unforgettable conclusion.
Review: I liked the first two volumes and I was curious to discover this last book especially after the previous end.
Aileana wakes up after some terrible events without any memory. Once again, she will have to find on her own to unlock her memory. Yet, by doing this, she will have to face back the world she left behind. The two faction powers are about to go to war and only the young woman could be able to contain these events if only the Unseelie King wanted to listen to her. Poor Aileana will have to manage her new powers by trying not to abuse them too much, or to pay the consequences. She will also have to try to convince Kiaran to avoid war and help her, as well as look for a lost book for centuries and that the terrible Morrigan holds waiting for someone she could force to release her.
It was a nice conclusion for the series and the author perfectly handles us in relation to the future of our two main characters. I was quite surprised by some reversals of situation but the whole was pretty well found. We see Aileana ready to do anything to save the world she loves as well as all her friends although nothing is easy. She will have to take on her to move forward. It is sad enough to see what Kiaran has become and yet for her, he is ready to take on him and to do everything to make her survive again.
We find all the characters in the story and I really enjoyed seeing them again. It was a very good conclusion to the trilogy and I think you will have a good time if you enjoyed the first two books.
