Book Synopsis:

My Thoughts:  Fighting For Life Against All Odds

      This is the end to a great series and what an epic end it is! So if you haven't read Gilded or Silvern go and read them first before diving into this terrific book or you'll be lost. The action and adventure in this book continued to become crazier from the last book as Jae Hwa ventured into new lands all to destroy Kud. Sacrifice no matter the cost is a tricky thing and seeing how much the cost for Jae Hwa is really worth makes this book suspenseful to the very end.
      Having signed her allegiance and life to the evil dark god Kud, Jae Hwa has only one mission find a way to destroy him. Jae Hwa knows that if she has any chance to be free of her contract she must find the last orb and return it to the heavenly chest before Kud can use it to destroy not only Korea but the world and all whom she loves. The only problem is her contract marks her as Kud's and has an effect on her in a way she didn't expect when she signed it to save Marc's life. Now she has to push even harder to keep her humanity and sense of right while residing in the Kud's world of darkness. Jae Hwa is faced with the hard truth that her choices may have isolated her and that she may no longer have allies, since the guardians of Korea now hold her as an enemy being marked as a slave of Kud. The only people she hopes will listen to her true purpose and mission is Marc and her grandfather, but doubt plagues even Jae Hwa when death and destruction always follow her. In the end Jae Hwa knows she will have to fight for more than just her freedom and it may come at the cost of her life or those dear to her. 
      Overall, Loved it! Christina Farley kept me turning page after page . . . again. All I kept thinking was poor Jae Hwa, last book was bad enough and this story seemed like she wasn't going to catch a break either, but just when it was darkest there would be a moment of light, or hope shinning through. Jae Hwa fought hard even after many things were against her including her allies; making her an admirable young woman. Oh and I loved how Jae Hwa traveled to China in this story, don't get me wrong I love the fact the book is about Korean Mythology and Korea, but taking the story to China was a great twist which added more imagery and suspense. Now I must say I only wished the ending had be prolonged a little bit because it felt very abrupt after all that just occurred and then all of sudden it was "THE END", I didn't realize that until I flipped to the next page and found the glossary signaling the book and subsequently the series was over. But really I can't be too upset because this book wrapped up the series in a great way covering everything and I can't help but be saddened we won't have more Jae Hwa and Marc, they were just too cute. So if you are into mythology and love action and adventure Y.A. books this is a great book series to get into and this book is a great conclusion.

  1. Great review!! I'm glad we both loved the book so much and opened the blog tour with such a great posts and thoughts

  2. I have to admit that I haven't read these books yet but from what you've said in your review, they sound great! And I will admit, I'm a sucker for awesome cover art. And since purple is my favorite color, I'm really liking the cover for Brazen. :)
