Summary of the Book:
An evil new magic threatens to undo all the progress women have made in the third and final book in Jenna Glass’s riveting feminist fantasy, following The Women’s War and Queen of the Unwanted.
In the once male-dominated world of Seven Wells, women now control their own reproduction, but the battle for equality is far from over. Even with two thrones held by women, there are still those who cling to the old ways and are determined to return the world to the way it was.
Now into this struggle comes a darker power. Delnamal, the former King of Aalwell, may have lost his battle to undo the spell that gave women reproductive control, but he has gained a terrible and deadly magic, and he uses these new abilities to raise an army the likes of which the world has never seen. Delnamal and his allies seem like an unstoppable force, destined to crush the fragile new balance between men and women.
Yet sometimes it is possible for determined individuals to stem the tide, and it comes down to a unique triad of women–maiden, mother, and crone–to risk everything…not only to preserve the advances they have won but to change the world one final time.
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I have read the two book that came before in this trilogy. I could not wait to see how this all wrapped up. The world building is still just amazing as it has been all along. The story picks back after some victories and losses. The battle for equality is still far from over, but they are making improvements. There is a king and his allies who want things to go back to the way it was before. Two throne now held by women but it may not be enough to hold off what is coming. The characters in this series are so bold and strong regardless of what side of the war they are on. This makes the conflict that is going on in this story far more believable.
My Rating of the Book: 5 Stars
