Book Review Blurb: Bright Ruin by Vic James

Do NOT let the short review fool you – this was a HUGE story… Unfortunately, without giving spoilers for the series, it’s tough to turn the final book in a trilogy into a free-standing review though! Read my reviews of book one and book two, then read this one. And if you want to talk more about it shoot me a message or comment – I’d love to have someone to talk to about it and not worry about ruining the delight of the series!! Enjoy…

OH MY GOODNESS!! I LOVED this series, and while I’m sorry to see it end, am delighted at how it all came together AND at how the excessively talented Vic James managed to curtail any desire to drag things out (surely such desire must have been present – this is a gloriously imagined world and I too found it difficult to leave, and it wasn’t even my own!)… This was the perfect wrap up to a taut, beautifully-crafted series – there was high drama, a ton of action, and enough resolution to bring the story lines full-circle without feeling forced, drawn out, or over-done. The characters practically leapt off the pages, as did the action/adventure/drama/intrigue/duplicity. The world was marvelous, full of the perfect amount of detail to allow my imagination to engage vividly and actively, picturing everyone and everything surrounding the Equals and rebels in their struggle for control. This is an excellent trilogy and I hope James has plans for more in the future, because I thoroughly enjoy her writing…

My review copy was provided by NetGalley. Bright Ruin releases on October 9 – so you have time to catch up on the other two books if you haven’t already!
