How was it?
I liked Roland in The King’s Dragon, and even in The Prince’s Dragon where his presence is more felt but in The Assassin’s Dragon he kind of stole the show. However, shocking his storyline turns out to be.
I am amazed and elated by how well-crafted this story is. The action is captivating and the different POVs gives us a clear picture of what’s going on. The Fire and Valor series is one epic inclusive high fantasy story that is very easy to read. It’s entertaining, exciting, funny, and heartwarming.
The large collection of characters featured and paired in this trilogy found a place in my heart. We saw all of them evolve and grow throughout. Whether it was in their familial relationships, friendships, or romantic relationships. I enjoyed the three main romantic pairings Tris and Bet, Sir Sidonie and Rhiannon, and Maddox and Gillian. But Rhys and Lady Elinor, Bowen, and Hafgan also made an impression. In addition to representing different types of relationships and sexualities, they also represent various relationship tropes in literature.
The non-romantic relationships are as important in the series as the romantic ones, making it a well-rounded story that has something for everyone.
The Fire and Valor trilogy is among the books that I read AND listen to, it’s that good. The story wraps up beautifully, and the overall series is incredible and a nice surprise.
