From #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout comes book three in her beloved Flesh and Fire series…
The only thing that can save the realms now is the one thing more powerful than the Fates.
After a startling betrayal ends with both Sera and the dangerously seductive ruler of the Shadowlands she has fallen madly in love with being held captive by the false King of the Gods, there is only one thing that can free Nyktos and prevent the forces of the Shadowlands from invading Dalos and igniting a War of Primals.
Convincing Kolis won’t be easy, though – not even with a lifetime of training. While his most favored Revenant is insistent that she is nothing more than a lie, Kolis’s erratic nature and twisted sense of honor leave her shaken to the core, and nothing could’ve prepared her for the cruelty of his Court or the shocking truths revealed. The revelations not only upend what she has understood about her duty and the very creation of the realms but also draw into question exactly what the true threat is. However, surviving Kolis is only one part of the battle. The Ascension is upon her, and Sera is out of time.
But Nyktos will do anything to keep Sera alive and give her the life she deserves. He’ll even risk the utter destruction of the realms, and that’s exactly what will happen if he doesn’t Ascend as the Primal of Life. Yet despite his desperate determination, their destinies may be out of their hands.
But there is that foreseen unexpected thread—the unpredictable, unknown, and unwritten. The only thing more powerful than the Fates…
I have loved every book in this series, but this one should come with a HUGE trigger warning for survivors of SA/DV. The story was beautiful as always, but this book was hard to get through as a survivor.
This prequel series is absolutely amazing. The characters are so alluring, plot is 100%, and the writing is phenomenal. I would recommend this series to anyone and everyone that would listen.
I’ve read horrible stories before but this one takes the #1 spot. There’s only two good chapters, 37 and 38. The book is drawn out and filled with useless rambling from start to finish. 80% of the book is Sera thinking. The last 3/4 chapters is soft porn. They literally have sex for 3 chapters. The author filled in a lot of the empty pointless narrative by over detailing Sera’s day…i.e “how she brushes her teeth, how she ate her food, how she decides what to wear for the day”. You never get a complete story on a few characters, like what happened to Vesse, Callum, Nye…hell Kolis! The book just ends. She’s literally in a cage for 70% of the book.
There’s a reason why it’s $7.99 and that’s even too much to waste on an unedited, horribly written book… this is not a slow burn, it’s not even a slow fizzle… it’s a never lit match. Yeah this author played in our faces with this mess
