Cécile and Tristan have accomplished the impossible, but their greatest challenge remains: defeating the evil they have unleashed upon the world.
As they scramble for a way to protect the people of the Isle and liberate the trolls from their tyrant king, Cécile and Tristan must battle those who’d see them dead. To win, they will risk everything. And everyone.
But it might not be enough. Both Cécile and Tristan have debts, and they will be forced to pay them at a cost far greater than they had ever imagined.
|This is the last book in the trilogy and it left me more than a little disappointed.
The Stolen Songbird left me breathless, squealing and generally so elated because it had magnificent world building, the characters were on point and it left on such a heartbreaking cliffhanger it ensured I would pick up Hidden Huntress, which lacked a considerable amount of things. Separating two main characters ensures that neither one of them fully develop a relationship outside of the bond.
So when Warrior Witch was picked up I was already somewhat dreading it. The overall idea is unique, it’s fascinating, the world concepts were interesting, but what of the actual plot that is going on? What about character developments? What about progression?
In my opinion, there was no progression. We came full circle, so take that as you will, but aside from rectifying things in regard to the Trolls? Nothing actually happened. Again, Tristan and Cecile are separated largely throughout the book, does Cecile NEED a man? No, but stones and sky I’d like to know when their relationship actually gets to form? Because it is gone after the first book.
I just felt a little cheated by the end of the book, an unconventional happily ever after to be sure.
Overall, I give the series a 3/3.5.
