A thousand years ago, two young lovers were betrayed—Alger Waterlow to his death, and Hanalea, Queen of the Fells, to a life without love. Now, once again, the Queendom of the Fells seems likely to shatter apart. For young queen Raisa ana’Marianna, maintaining peace even within her own castle walls is nearly impossible; tension between wizards and Clan has reached a fevered pitch. With surrounding kingdoms seeking to prey on the Fells’ inner turmoil, Raisa’s best hope is to unite her people against a common enemy. But that enemy might be the person with whom she's falling in love.Through a complicated web of lies and unholy alliances, former streetlord Han Alister has become a member of the Wizard Council of the Fells. Navigating the cut-throat world of blue blood politics has never been more dangerous, and Han seems to inspire hostility among Clan and wizards alike. His only ally is the queen, and despite the perils involved, Han finds it impossible to ignore his feelings for Raisa. Before long, Han finds himself in possession of a secret believed to be lost to history, a discovery powerful enough to unite the people of the Fells. But will the secret die with him before he can use it? A simple, devastating truth concealed by a thousand-year-old lie at last comes to light in this stunning conclusion to the Seven Realms series.

AHHH I CAN’T WRITE A REVIEW FOR THIS!!! Okay, bottom line: you should know that I loved this book SO. MUCH. That it actually, physically, hurts. I loved everything about this book. I loved the way it started, the pacing, the plot—really, JUST EVERYTHING. I want to bow down to Chima for having a sl...
Brakowało mi tego pierwiastka sprawiającego, że poprzednie części pochłaniałam. Niemniej dobre zakończenie ciekawej serii :3
So many questions, so many stories that needed telling. A story of their own they needed to write. One with a happy ending. Easiest rating I ever had to give.It’s true, I ever only started on this series because of this book. So it was a bit of a winded, intricate and LONG ASS wait to get to this p...
3.5 stars.I didn't unconditionally love this series, but it got better as it went on, and the last book was a satisfying finish. It reduced a lot of issues that I had with earlier books - there was much more action throughout, the love triangle was reduced in that Raisa and Han at least knew what th...
