Week 47 Review: Freedom's Slave

From Goodreads:
Freedom's Slave is the exhilarating end to Heather Demetrios's Dark Caravan Cycle—a modern jinni fantasy-adventure trilogy, which Publishers Weekly called "an intricate and smartly written story," perfect for fans of Laini Taylor's Daughter of Smoke & Bone series and Leigh Bardugo's Grisha Trilogy.

After three long years in exile, Nalia is ready to return to her homeland and sit on the throne that is rightfully hers. But the gods might have other plans. Forced to endure untold horrors on the journey to Arjinna, Nalia learns that it will take more than cutting down the tyrant Calar to get her crown.

Meanwhile, Raif's return to Arjinna as the commander of the revolution against Calar and her army isn't as smooth as he'd hoped. Though he has more soldiers than ever before, his love for Nalia is losing him the trust of his comrades . . . and the war. But little does the resistance know that insurrection is brewing among Calar's own ranks—and from the one person she trusts the most.

Is Nalia and Raif's enduring love enough to transform and rescue their homeland? Will they be willing to save the realm, no matter the cost?

My Review:
This series has always been really fantastic! And being the last volume, it was pretty gigantic! And I just loved reading it! The pages just went by so fast, and I had to read the next one so much! Yeah, this book was pretty addicting!

When the synopsis says "forced to endure untold horrors" it means it. It also doesn't mean that she's with the group that she started out with. Because that would be too easy! So yeah, there was a good section where Nalia and Raif were separated and things were uncertain!

In this book, we get another POV, one of a person who is very close to Calar, and that added so much! And that he had so many secrets! And we got to see what she was doing, which was really, really creepy!

There was a lot of hardship throughout this book. What Calar did was horrible for the land, and vicious to the people. And then there was the coming of a prophecy which took so many lives! But then there were Nalia and Raif, and that was just a fantastic ending!

This book was freaking epic and enjoyable, and I need to read more of Heather Demetrios' books!

  1. I've actually never heard of the author or the series but if the final book sounds this good I'm thinking I should see about getting the first one. Lovely write up :)
