Tell Me About It
My name is Lady Aileana Kameron.

First the fae murdered my mother. Then they destroyed my world.

Then one of them killed me.

Now I'm fighting for more than revenge.

The long-awaited final book in the Falconer trilogy is an imaginative tour-de-force that will thrill fans of the series.
Aileana Kameron, resurrected by ancient fae magic, returns to the world she once knew with no memory of her past and with dangerous powers she struggles to control. Desperate to break the curse that pits two factions of the fae against, her only hope is hidden in an ancient book guarded by the legendary Morrigan, a faery of immense power and cruelty. To save the world and the people she loves, Aileana must learn to harness her dark new powers even as they are slowly destroying her.

Packed with immersive detail, action, romance, and fae lore, The Fallen Kingdom brings the Falconer's story to an epic and unforgettable conclusion.
My Thoughts
The Fallen Kingdom is a book I have been excited to read since I finished The Vanishing Throne, and it's been a long torturous wait for its publication. When it arrived I may have done a happy dance, excited to have it in my hands. However I was also nervous to start it, wondering if it would live up to the previous books and my expectations.

The Fallen Kingdom was everything I expected and more. I loved getting to see how far the characters have come, how much the world is changing, as how far Aileana has come and has to go. The journey for Aileana isn't easy, and she has to face her past and ask for their help in order to save the future for herself, her friends, and the world. She has powers that are not hers, that are slowly killing her, each use bring her closer to death, Kiaran, forced to go to war against his sister, is not himself, Sorcha is back and has her eyes set on one thing only, and will do whatever it takes to get what she want. Aithinne is just as crazy but also loyal to Aileana, aiding her in any way she can even if there is no guarantee of the outcome.

'I hate this,' I mutter.
'Really? I'm having a grand time,' Aithinne says brightly.
'That's because you're barmy.'
'I believe you just mispronounced magnificent.'

The Fallen Kingdom wouldn't be a book in the Falconer series without it's twists and turns, plot twists, and tears........lots and lots of tears. I loved every page of this book and jumping back into this world was the easiest thing to do. The Fallen Kingdom is full of beautiful imagery, breathtaking scenes, and jaw dropping fight scenes.

Final Verdict
The Falconer series is a series that has to be read, and The Fallen Kingdom definitely takes this series out with a bang.
