Hello and welcome to another Storytellers on Tour review! This time it is for the third and final installment of The Gifted and The Cursed series by Marcus Lee. If you haven’t already read the first two books then please don’t read this review as it will most likely contain spoilers for those two books.
As Daleth the Witch-King and his horde ready themselves for the final battle, a small alliance prepares for a desperate last stand.
However, the alliance is weak and fractured, led by a king interested only in retaining his wealth and a lord commander consumed by his thirst for revenge. With a seemingly unbeatable army before them, invisible foes amongst them, and broken hearts between them, the alliance appears destined to fall.
Yet in these dark times, her light almost extinguished, a peasant huntress is soon to be queen. But if she can find what was lost, she might prove to be more powerful than two kings combined.
This war will bring about the end of dreams, but for whom, the gods have yet to decide
This was a great finale to a very enjoyable series, the characters are lovable and I found myself rooting for them for the entire journey! Marcus has a great writing style that works really well for me and I can’ wait to see what he comes up with next!
My only slight gripe is that he changes perspectives mid chapter – personally I prefer a new chapter when we change perspective but that’s me being picky! I found like sometimes I didn’t catch the change and had to backtrack to figure out who we were following.
This book was full of twists and turns that kept me on my toes throughout and it has a satisfying ending!
