Book Three in The Grave Kingdom trilogy.
To defeat an immortal evil, a young warrior must enter the land of the dead in the spellbinding conclusion to Wall Street Journal bestselling author Jeff Wheeler’s epic Grave Kingdom trilogy.
As kingdoms fall, brave young warrior Bingmei fights to fulfill a prophecy and save what’s left of the world from the coming darkness. Should she fail, Echion, the diabolical Dragon of Night, and his queen will hold sway over the next thousand years. With Echion comes his unstoppable army of dragons—powerful, vengeful, and under his control.
Accompanied by her loyal friend Quion, Bingmei journeys toward her last hope. It lies among the savage beasts just beyond the ancient Death Wall—an uninhabited realm from which no one has ever returned alive. Bingmei’s mission is to find the phoenix shrine and learn the Immortal Words that will allow her to harness eternal magic. With Echion and his legions in pursuit, Bingmei must choose her words wisely to break Echion’s spell and accept her fate.
Bingmei knows what she must do. She must join the ranks of the dead as well. For a fearless and selfless warrior, it’s the ultimate sacrifice. But Bingmei is about to discover that even in death, the greatest sacrifices are yet to come.
What an enthralling trilogy this has been – and the author does not rule out revisiting this world for future stories!
I’ve lapped up this entire trilogy and Book 3 has maintained the high standard of writing and story-telling. Bingmei’s growth has continued and threw a surprise at me in a good way. I really liked the ending and can see the direction potential future books might take. There were a couple of things that, although tied up, I would have liked to seen in more detail, but nothing that detracted from the story in any way.
I’d also like to mention the stunning cover art, not just on this book but on all three, but I forgot to mention it in my reviews of the previous two books.
