- The End of the Battle by Suzie on 3/1/2016
A little over two months into 2016, and another series (well, this one’s a trilogy) comes to a conclusion. On April 8, the final book in Lisa T. Bergren’s Remnants series will be available for purchase.
Season of Glory picks up right where book two left readers. One half of the Ailith and their knights have escaped Pacifica. Niero has revealed himself to Dri in order to save Ronan. And Ronan is unsure of Andriana’s true feelings toward him after learning she kissed Keallach while staying at the palace. If she truly loved him, why had she kissed another man?
When both groups of Ailith reunite in the citadel, they prepare for their hardest battles ahead. It’s time for the citizens of some of the most evil cities to learn the truth of the Way and the Maker, to make a choice in what kind of lives they are going to lead.
This concept extends to everyone—even the Ailith born. As Keallach joins the others with the intent of bringing Dri and his twin brother Kapriel back to Pacifica with him, a long to be a part of the group—a brother to them—grows within him. But will he choose the Way or the man who taught him everything. Sethos is intent on destroying the Ailith once and for all.
There are so many themes in this book. Good v. evil. Selfishness v. selflessness. God going ahead and preparing hearts along the way, surprising everyone with the outcome. Love. Loss of life. The way of the spirit v. the way of the flesh. Yet Bergren weaves these seamlessly through the story while engaging the reader.
Some scenes brought tears to my eyes—the Ailith lose some of their own in this book—while others gave me hope. And the series ends with a little bit of an epilogue which made me happy. I hoped to find out what happens with Dri, Ronan, Keallach, and the others once the fighting ended.
An excellent alternative to those mainstream YA books out there.
