The final chapter in the war for Ourea ends with blood.
Kara Magari is an icon. A hero. The people love her. The royalty tolerates her. She has everything—an army, allies, and a close circle of chosen family. They believe she will end the war, and they shouldn’t. She’s as scared as they are. She just can’t show it.
The war she accidentally started ends with a final battle that will either save or enslave her people. She will do anything to win—until she learns the cost of victory.
Braeden Drakonin is afraid of what he’ll become when he takes over his father’s kingdom—that much authority can change a man. But his father has already tried to kill him more than once, and it’s time to end his reign. Braeden’s armies are ready. His strategy is foolproof. His generals are waiting for the order to attack. It’s only in the final seconds before the battle begins that he realizes he missed one crucial detail—the traitor.
This is the last book in a series I’ve been following since it began and I’m really sad to say goodbye. Why can’t my favorites go on and on and on? I’m going to miss SO MUCH the characters and the world of this amazing series.
All the events that take place in this awesome series finale took my breath away and they had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. There wasn’t a single dull moment as it had never-ending action and many surprises at every corner. The final battle was, wow, such a thrill to read about and absolutely crazy.
My lovely couple, Kara and Braeden, have grown so much throughout the books. They are stronger in all aspects and I love how finally, this book doesn’t have any heartbreak involved. They are together, and in their small world, happy. No more doubting about each other’s feelings, even though they fear of what may happen in the final battle against Braeden’s father.
The world of Ourea will never cease to amaze me. It’s such a magical place and I love how complex and rich it is, how there’s always room to explore more and more. The people/races that live here are also unique and interesting. They are part of this world’s beauty and without them, Ourea wouldn’t be alive.
I’m so glad in how this series ended. Illusion didn’t disappoint me and although it was bittersweet to turn the last page, I did it with a smile on my face.
The Grimoire Saga is simply fantastic. Every book, every chapter, is an incredible adventure. All of the books are the kind that you want to re-read because you want to explore every corner in case you missed a thing the first time. This saga is so worth your time, especially if you love fantasy and excellent world-building. Still, I recommend it to everyone!
Oh, and if you want to check out the first book, Lichgates, you can go ahead and grab it from Amazon and other sites because it is always FREE. The author is that cool.
