G. Bianco, 2019
As many of you might know, I have been a fan of The Prison Healer Series by Lynette Noni since before it even came out in 2020 (I was fortunate enough to get an ARC of it at the time). So you can probably imagine how much I was eagerly awaiting the third and final book, The Blood Traitor, to come out on June 14th. That being said, I also had super high hopes for it and was a bit nervous that this book wouldn’t live up to the hype (see my reviews for Book 1 and Book 2 for reference). But before I get into what I thought, let’s set the stage of the plot:
She’d failed them. All of them. And now she was paying the price. Kiva thought she knew what she wanted—revenge. But feelings change, people change . . . everything has changed. After what happened at the palace, Kiva is desperate to know if her friends and family are safe, and whether those she wronged can ever forgive her. But with the kingdoms closer to the brink of war than they’ve ever been, and Kiva far away from the conflict, more is at stake than her own broken heart. A fresh start will mean a perilous quest, forcing mortal enemies and uneasy allies together in a race against the clock to save not just Evalon, but all of Wenderall. With her loyalties now set, Kiva can no longer just survive—she must fight for what she believes in. For who she believes in. But with danger coming from every side, and the lives of everyone she loves at risk, does she have what it takes to stand, or will she fall?
So I started reading this book and was a bit nervous that it wouldn’t live up to the hype I, and the rest of the internet, had built up for it. But then it did live up to the hype, and it was AMAZING!!!
Seriously, this YA fantasy book cured my reading slump and had everything I was hoping it would have: action, peril, excitement, romance, humor, plot twists, and tear-jerking moments! I genuinely don’t think Noni could’ve done a better job writing this book and the conclusion to this enthralling series was just fantastically done. I don’t want to give away too much because, I’ll just say that while I’m sad I won’t get anymore content about Kiva and her friends, I am very glad I got to read this phenomenal book!
If you haven’t read this series yet, then I highly recommend you check it out! Every book in this trilogy got a 5 star rating from me so if that doesn’t convince you to read these books then I don’t know what will!
