From Spirit and Binding (Elements of Five #3) by Carrie Ann Ryan
In my quest to unlock four of my five elements, I have watched those I love fade into ash and ruin. Bearing the weight of soul-crushing loss, my friends and I must try to regroup and journey back to the only home I have left—the Obscurité Court.
With the future uncertain, and the one person who could help my control my new powers missing, I’ve never felt more lost.
The King of Lumière wants revenge for his lost brother, and I stand in his way. With a missing king, a lost prince, and a few unexpected allies, I will have to battle more than one enemy as the darkness wraps it’s claws in my future…and in my heart.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book was….just wow. There is no other way of putting it! This is definitely one of those series that have to be read in order, because each book builds on the last, the characters continuing to grow and find out more about themselves, and the world they have sworn to protect. It’s a fantasy series that is so well written, I can see myself there, I can feel what they are feeling. It’s really kind of amazing!
This book picks up where Flame and Ash left off, and boy, the beginning left me reeling! It starts out explosively and just keeps going from there! Lyric is left in a state of shock, reeling from the events that just occurred, not sure where to go from there. But those around her rally together, and they keep moving, keep pushing forward, knowing that they have no choice but to succeed. There very world depends on it.
This book was absolutely amazing. The story was full of twists and turns, surprising events kept me guessing, right from the beginning! This story was gut wrenching, full of action, and I just could not have asked for more! This series is building to something big, something I can’t even begin to guess what it is, and I can’t wait for it, but I’m definitely enjoying the journey along the way!
