Holy gods do I have emotions. I don't know if I'll ever NOT feel suffocated by the reality that this series is over. This final instalment made me laugh, bawl, SOB, smile, gasp, and everything in between.

Mia Corvere has been on the hunt for revenge for eight years. After thinking her journey over, her quest fulfilled, in the sands of the Gladiatii, she now knows just how wrong she was - and the price of what she wants more than anything may be higher than she could ever know. With her familia by her side, she's to face the most intense war she's ever waged, on a scale of gods and goddesses, suns and moons, life and death.

I was so ready for answers with this last book. I spent Godsgrave wondering how everything was going to fit together, but then also just so flabbergasted at the twists and turns that I almost forgot to wonder at the same time. Going into this one, even just at the prologue/recap, I knew that we were in for it this time. Everything was going to be revealed. And let me tell you, it really goddamn was, and those revelations start right at the beginning of the novel and literally never stop coming.

I feel like these characters are my family. I feel like I know Mia better than I know almost all of the people I talk to on a daily basis, and I love her more than about 99% of those people. She is so fierce, brutal and broken but so steadfast in her resolve. I absolutely adored her journey with Ashlinn, who I also have grown to absolutely LOVE so much more than I thought I would. I feel like I can't discuss a lot of characters here without spoiling it, so I won't, but just know this: every single one is wonderful. Complex, ever-changing and growing, always multi-faceted and so real-feeling. Jay has a knack for creating characters who I want to ride with into battle, and I wish I knew these ones in real life.

Again, plot-wise, I won't discuss much, because I went into this knowing nothing and expecting everything and that's exactly what I got. This final book is full of twists and turns just like the rest of the series has been. I will say that the scope of these novels is intensified here; in book one, Mia's world was expanding so fast, and so it felt smaller. Here, the fate of Godsgrave is at stake, and the scale has become gargantuan, playing with forces of nature and gods and goddesses. Sometimes that turns me off of a series, but here, it just felt right.

I think that's what I adore about these books more than anything: they feel so utterly thoughtful. Bursting with love and creativity and a heroine who spits daggers and will never settle for anything less than what she wants most. There's such a beating heart in these pages, and I will never not love them. I feel like there is a hole inside my chest now that can only be filled by rereads and forcing this series on everyone I can.
