Goodreads Summary:

In the final book in the New York Times bestselling Ruined series, the romance of The Selection and the epic stakes of Red Queen come together in a story of revenge, adventure, and unexpected love.

Emelina Flores and her sister, Olivia, were determined to bring peace to the people of Ruina. But as the war for liberation raged on, what triumph and freedom meant to Em and Olivia slowly changed. As Olivia’s violence and thirst for vengeance became her only ambition, Em was left to pick up the pieces.

But it’s not only Em who is upset by Olivia’s increased violence. Other members of the Ruined army are beginning to see the cracks, and soon a small group of them defects from Olivia’s army and joins Em instead. The two sisters are soon pitted against each other in an epic battle for the kingdom and the future, and only one will win.

My Review:

I have been a huge fan of this series, and I also loved Amy Tintera’s other duology! I was wondering how this would end. Good? Bad? Ugly? I’ll just say it ended how I wanted, but the road getting there wasn’t fist pumping worthy.

I did like this book, but didn’t love it as much as the other two. I liked Galo, but I wasn’t rooting for his chapters in this book. I just wanted to keep getting back to the others’. However, his relationship with Mateo was extremely cute.

Loved Em! Loved Cas! My two little babies will forever hold a special place in my heart. Olivia was still cray-cray and as hostile as ever.

I actually think this trilogy would have worked better as a duology, but it was still fun, full of action, and sprinkled with cute romance. Plus, Tintera’s dialogue is always the best!

Have you started this series yet?

May Reads 2018

I have two books definitely planned for this month which I am ecstatic for! I’m really hoping A Court of Frost and Starlight gives a hint of who the next book will be about. I’m also ready for the conclusion in the Ruined trilogy! Amy Tintera writes characters so well.

 

Other book releases this month!
