ARC Review: The Fallen Kingdom by Elizabeth May

The Fallen Kingdom
Author: Elizabeth May
Series: The Falconer (Book 3)
Publication: Chronicle Books (June 13, 2017)

Description: The long-awaited final book in the Falconer trilogy is an imaginative tour-de-force that will thrill fans of the series. Aileana Kameron, resurrected by ancient fae magic, returns to the world she once knew with no memory of her past and with dangerous powers she struggles to control. Desperate to break the curse that pits two factions of the fae against each other in a struggle that will decide the fate of the human and fae worlds, her only hope is hidden in an ancient book guarded by the legendary Morrigan, a faery of immense power and cruelty. To save the world and the people she loves, Aileana must learn to harness her dark new powers even as they are slowly destroying her. Packed with immersive detail, action, romance, and fae lore, and publishing simultaneously in the UK, The Fallen Kingdom brings the Falconer's story to an epic and unforgettable conclusion.

My Thoughts: This is the third and final volume of the Falconer trilogy and it is packed with action and danger. Aileana Kameron has come back from the dead with vast powers that she struggles to control and that are killing her. Nonetheless, she is determined to find a way to break an ancient curse and save the lives of the people she loves.

She and her companions need to defeat the Morrigan who also has vast powers and who is also searching for the book Aileana and her companions need. The book will allow the Morrigan to have a body again and to take over Earth. Aileana wants to use the book to turn back time to before the fae escaped their prison. Of course, she would also like to save the lives of Aithinne and Kiaran who are cursed to kill each other.

This story was emotionally intense and filled with wonderful descriptions and characters. I enjoyed the world building. Fans of epic fantasy with strong female characters will enjoy this series.

Favorite Quote:
"I hate this," I mutter.

"Really? I'm having a grand time," Aithinne says brightly.

"That's because you're barmy."

"I believe you just mispronounced magnificent."
I got this one for review from NetGalley. You can buy your copy here.
