As a dedicated fantasy reader, I really enjoyed this series. I have read some of the related books but not for a long time. That didn't detract from this story. All the elements of a good fantasy, twists and turns, multi - dimensional characters, difficult choices and interesting magic.
This book and the rest in the series have been the best stories I've read in a long time and am sorry that it has come to an end. If you have never read anything by this author then this is the one to start with. You will find them very hard to put down.
I have loved Jeff Wheeler's Harbinger Series and the complex finale, 'Broken Veil', is a perfect, epic conclusion.
The changes in store for the two main characters are completed in this book with Cettie of the Fells developing into a sagacious woman and Sera maturing into a worthy Empress. The secondary characters are richly developed too, with flaws and strengths, as either protagonists or antagonists.
There are a lot of threads to tie off in the 5th book and the author does this expertly. At the same time, the plot is riveting with delicious twists. Wheeler's writing has been brilliantly entertaining throughout the series and his themes of betrayal, revenge, atonement and forgiveness concludes strongly.
Loved this book both main characters sera and cettie are so human and flawed, yet willing to admit their mistakes. They admirably wanted to change things and remove the class system. Loved this series. Look forward to more like this.
I loved this whole series, while I've read some good books where the hero's have their flaws, the depth and thought into the characters was astounding. Jeff Wheerler now in my favourite writers list. The book was well written and i enjoyed the fact that physical relationships were not the main point to keep the reader interested. The story line gripping and the heroes are something to aspire to. I am looking forward to reading all the other books written before and after this series
