Faithful and the Fallen · John Gwynne · Young Adult

Wrath (Faithful and the Fallen #4)

~Review~

This was such a fantastic ending to a great series! The plot was amazing, the characters well-developed, and there were plenty of surprises along the way. I will be looking forward to reading this series again in a few years! Not much to say about this one, other than that it was amazing! 🙂

Plot 

As you know by now this book continues the story of the previous one. Everything that occurred was exciting and interesting with a few twists along the way. I couldn’t believe some of the things that happened, especially regarding a few characters’ deaths.

The pacing was absolutely perfect! I can also say this is one of the few books that actually made me cry. The ending was so incredibly sad I couldn’t help but shed some tears.

“If you choose not to fight against Asroth, then you have already chosen him. Doing nothing does not absolve you of choice. Doing nothing puts you firmly on Asroth’s side and makes you a coward, as well, for not having the stones to admit it.”

It was amazing that this was just one perfectly continued story. It was done so well that I can’t even distinguish what happened in one book from another. It all blends so well together. A masterpiece of good versus evil.

World Building 

The world of the Banished Lands is incredible and I thoroughly enjoyed discovering every piece of it. Learning more about the giants, the history, and all the rest was astounding, especially about the prophecy.

Venturing into the Otherworld was also neat and the creatures within it were fascinating.

Characters 

Of course, the characters developed even more! The character development throughout the entire series was perfect, especially considering the number of characters.

“To my thinking, though,  it’s what happens before death that’s important. All of us die. How many really live?”

As I previously mentioned, I was quite upset towards the ending of the book and that is because the author wasn’t afraid to kill off characters. 😦

Getting attached to characters is what really makes me enjoy a book and that definitely happened throughout this series. I loved all of them!

Writing 

Gwynne’s writing improved significantly over the course of the series. I didn’t have any problems with it.

“It will be a dark day, a bloody day, a proud day, for this is the day of our wrath.”

His descriptions of people, places, creatures, and even battles were well detailed and just perfect.

Cover 

Absolutely gorgeous! I love how they all match! Each one looks fantastic on my shelf! 🙂

  1. Oh my goodness, I just finished and reviewed Ruin today, and came across your review right after. I didn’t read the full thing, because I’m nervous about spoilers, but the 5 stars for the finale is very exciting! So glad to hear you enjoyed it!
