This is an epic end to a remarkable series. It’s an understatement to say Kingmakers ends with a bang because there’s so much that happens and so many things explained. And I will absolutely read the entire series over now with this new knowledge because I think it will be even better the second time around. I’m struggling to write this without spoiling anything because I can’t even use the name of one of the MCs without ruining the suspense, but oh my stars, this is a great story.
There’s so much action and so many subplots, but it’s all so perfectly interwoven, there’s no confusion or plot holes. It all flows and makes sense. It’s always kind of odd reading about such young characters but I love watching them grow and change because so much hinges on the transformation. Dean and Cat are probably still my favorite couple of the bunch, just barely edging out the others, but I really enjoyed this book, too. I don’t want to give anything away so I’ll just say that the MCs weren’t who I expected, but their story is amazing. Reading this book was like watching an action movie in my head. The author has a gift for description, really painting a picture with her words and I love that in a book.
This story was riveting from the first page. More than once, I thought I knew what was coming next only to be surprised, which is rare. One thing I wasn’t expecting at all was a third POV but it added so much to the story. The epilogue wraps up all the storylines for the various characters throughout the series nicely, which is one of my favorite things. I’m always sad to see a great series end but I couldn’t imagine a better ending for this one. I loved everything about it.
I received a free ARC and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.
