I went into my read of “Hero at the Fall” super scared and excited for how this finale was going to go down. (Thank you to @faberchildrens for these gorgeous copies) I had listened to "Rebel of the Sands” and “Traitor to the Throne” while actually crossing a desert (twice) and I became so invested and fell so in love with the characters during those drives that I was both ready to see this rebellion come to an end and not ready at all. . It became pretty clear to me once I’d started that 1. this book was going to be crammed full of events because a lot had to go down and 2. My heart was going to be cracked wide open. . So yes. This book IS crammed full of many events, which meant a lot of quick and tidy resolutions when it started to get real. And when it came down to it, I was willing to just let it go because those events gave me closure on a lot of things and after that, I was ready to move on without further long-time snags. . What I do love about this entire series is the storytelling that some of the chapters take on to reveal back story or fill in large gaps of time quickly. Some times it made for a lot of information, but honestly I loved it and it gave these books an ancient fairytale quality. . I found myself tearing up several times while reading this. I’m not even talking all about sad things either. Just moments that felt like a long time-time coming etc. But I did get really SAD several times. Ugh. I got sad and I’m still sad. haha. . I only had one moment in this whole series, which happened to be in this book, that I could have really done without. The one thing that I felt was unnecessary, even though the resolution to it was easy to spot a chapter or so before it happened. . All in all, I love this trilogy, this story, the characters, and I know it’s one I’ll read again. If you like the Djinn and fairytale-like stories I think you may enjoy these. #rebelofthesands #traitortothethrone #heroatthefall #alwynhamilton #bookreview
