Summary from Goodreads: The #1 New York Times bestselling author of Year One and Of Blood and Bone concludes her stunning trilogy that the New York Times Book Review praised as "A match for end-of-the-world classics like Stephen King's The Stand."

The first battle is already over, but the big fight for good and evil is yet to come: The young Fallon leads their army to Washington D.C., to drive the black magic out of the world. She is the chosen one to rebuild the world after the apocalypse and unite her inhabitants. There is a great burden on the young woman, because the family of her father's murderer seeks revenge on her and her sweetheart. But Fallon's mission is now easier than the interpretation of her feelings for Duncan, whose fate is inevitably tied to hers.

Review: Magic is on a come back. If you haven't read the previous books in this series, don't worry about it. The story was easy to follow and everything from past books was explained well. I really enjoyed the magic and how it worked. It's a good sign when you can understand the magic in a book instead of just having magic that can do anything and there is no rhym or reason to it. The characters were great as well. They live in a dystopian world where they are fighting for equality and safety. I really felt their battle and conviction in doing what was right, even if it meant they would give their lives for their cause. This was a fantastic story that really kept me on edge the whole time.  

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
