Book - 2020

"Queen Rielle, pushed away from everything she loves, turns to Corien and his promises of glory. Meanwhile, whispers from the empirium slowly drive her mad, urging her to open the Gate. Separated from Audric and Ludivine, she embraces the role of Blood Queen and her place by Corien's side, determined to become the monster the world believes her to be. In the future, Eliana arrives in the Empire's capital as a broken shell of herself. Betrayed and abandoned, she fights to keep her... power at bay-and away from Corien, who will stop at nothing to travel back in time to Rielle, even if that means destroying her daughter. But when the mysterious Prophet reveals themselves at last, everything changes, giving Rielle and Eliana a second chance for salvation-or the destruction their world has been dreading."--Amazon.

Review by Booklist Reviews

Queen Rielle and archangel Corien continue to collect the seven instruments that will destroy the gate that is humanity's only protection against dark angels (and worse); King Audric attempts to find support for his bid to reclaim his throne despite aching for the loss of his queen; and their royal child, in the future, is on a collision course with both parents that will either win back the world for mankind or condemn it forever. The third piece of the Empirium trilogy, which started with Furyborn (2018) and Kingsbane (2019), brings together all the players, emotions, and action from the first two books and explodes like a supernova. Each chapter is filled with unwinnable confrontations and unwavering characters, who fight with every available weapon, from the physicality of an enchanted sword to the metaphysical manifestations of their will. If readers haven't experienced the first two books they will be swept under by the unrelenting pace and omniscient narrator who jumps between main characters. A rousing conclusion to a series studded with unforgettable heroes and villains. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
