Week 45 Reviews: Flames Like Vines, Frost Like Night

From Goodreads:
"She was part of Summer, and Summer was part of her, and this land wouldn't abandon her too."

Ceridwen Preben, princess of Summer, has spent her life plotting against her brother, Simon, the Summerian king. Simon has embraced the ruling family's reputation for using their conduit to keep their subjects in a state of bliss, and has spent his reign slowly driving Summer into ruin, filling everyone with carelessness and letting them turn a blind eye to Summer's rampant -- and deadly -- slave trade. But Ceridwen refuses to let her kingdom disintegrate, and with the help of her fellow rebel-in-arms, Lekan, she hopes to undo Simon's lethal dealings.

But when Ceridwen uncovers Simon's deadliest plot yet, she starts to realize just how deep magic runs -- and that even though her kingdom is one of sunlight, with light, there always comes shadows.

From Goodreads:
Game of Thrones meets Graceling in this shocking and action-packed fantasy—the highly anticipated final book in the New York Times bestselling Snow Like Ashes series.

Angra is alive, his Decay is spreading—and no one is safe.

Meira will do anything to save her world. With Angra trying to break through her mental defenses, she desperately needs to learn to control her own magic—so when the leader of a mysterious Order from Paisly offers to teach her, Meira jumps at the chance.  But the true solution to stopping the Decay lies in a labyrinth deep beneath the Season Kingdoms. To defeat Angra, Meira will have to enter the labyrinth, destroy the very magic she’s learning to control-- and make the biggest sacrifice of all.

Mather will do anything to save his queen. He needs to rally the Children of the Thaw, find Meira—and finally tell her how he really feels.  But with a plan of attack that leaves no kingdom unscathed and a major betrayal within their ranks, winning the war—and protecting Meira—slips farther and farther out of reach.

Ceridwen will do anything to save her people. Angra had her brother killed, stole her kingdom, and made her a prisoner.  But when she's freed by an unexpected ally who reveals a shocking truth behind Summer's slave trade, Ceridwen must take action to save her true love and her kingdom, even if it costs her what little she has left.

As Angra unleashes the Decay on the world, Meira, Mather, and Ceridwen must bring the kingdoms of Primoria together…or lose everything.

My Review:
Yeah, I loved reading the end of this series! It was just so great, and these characters were just everything that I've loved in the previous books! Thought it was sad to say goodbye to them, they did have an epic end!

Flames Like Vines was really great to read because it gave us a quick look at what Summer was like just before Meira arrived! And that we got full on Ceridwen POV which I don't know if we had before! So yeah, that was just so awesome to read!

Frost Like Night was just awesome! We got to see Meira really learn to use her magic-knowing that she was planning on sacrificing herself so that magic would be no more! That was just so fantastic, and it added so much tension!

There were just so many moments where it was like, what the heck happened? Because they were impossible, unlikely! Loved reading them and how they all came together for such a spectacular ending! It wasn't what I expected, but it was just so great!

This series has been just so freaking great, and I can't wait to read Sara Raasch's next book!
