Hero at the Fall (Rebel of the Sands, #3)

When gunslinging Amani Al'Hiza escaped her dead-end town, she never imagined she'd join a revolution, let alone lead one. But after the bloodthirsty Sultan of Miraji imprisoned the Rebel Prince Ahmed in the mythical city of Eremot, she doesn't have a choice. Armed with only her revolver, her wits, and her untameable Demdji powers, Amani must rally her skeleton crew of rebels for a rescue mission through the unforgiving desert to a place that, acc...

    Please don’t read the comments if you don’t want to be spoiled. In my review I have spoilers under tags but not in comments as I can do nothing about those. Hope this helps.I’ve lost the ability to produce proper sentences. THIS BOOK WAS SO CRUEL. AND SO GREAT. Now I probably really need to sit in a corner and cry of both sadness and joy. I’ll miss everybody so freaking much! I started reading this series in 2015 and I’ve loved it ever ...

    2.5 starsHero at the Fall could not level with the preceding installments and thus did not meet my expectations. Its ending was rushed and anti-climactic, and some solutions to problems seemed way too easy for my taste. Another reason this book fell flat for me was my emotional detachment from the characters, which had already commenced in the sequel. Despite some enjoyable and entertaining chapters, this book was not my cup of tea. RTC.

    I still believe this trilogy to be qualitatively a little above your average YA series, but this finale didn't fully satisfy me. A bit on the smoke-and-mirrors side, if you ask me, and it comes with filler drama aplenty—case in point, pretty much everything that goes down in the last chapters (but not only there) and, particularly, (view spoiler)[Amani having to chose who should die (hide spoiler)]. This necessary (?) (view spoiler)[death (hide...

    I'm never going to ever forget this storyFIRST UP YES I'M A COMPLETE AND UTTER MESS RIGHT AND YES I'M NOT EMOTIONALLY STABLE RIGHT NOW AND YES EVERYTHING REALLY REALLY HURTS AND YES I'M NOT GONNA BE ABLE TO MOVE ON WITH MY LIFE FOR A GAZILLION YEARS AND YES I'VE ALREADY CRIED ENOUGH TO FILL UP SEVERAL HUNDRED BATHTUBS. Secondly, thank you Alwyn Hamilton for giving me this amazing series that feels so much like home every time I delve back into th...

    "A new dawn, a new desert."Another series has come to an end, and I'M NOT OKAY.Hero at the Fall was the perfect conclusion to an incredible series! I fell in love with Rebel of the Sands from the first page and my love only grew more and more! Each book is amazing and unique, and you can't help but adore everything and everyone (Amani and Jin, my babies ♥). And now that the story is over all I can feel is emptiness because I already miss all of...

    You can also find this review on My Blog.There is little left to say after loving the first two books in this trilogy either than again, i am not disappointed! There couldn’t have been a better conclusion to this swirling desert tale. There’s blood, war, death and magic but all loose ends are wrapped up and we get one hell of a story!Alwyn Hamilton still has her whimsical, almost poet like writing style that i love so much but she has pushed ...
  • Manisha
    Actual review: 3.5“She was all fire and gunpowder, and her finger was always on a trigger.”I found this to be a decent ending to a decent trilogy. Out of all the books in this series, this instalment is the most action-packed novel, and therefore, the fastest to read. It was fun, it was interesting, but like the past two books, this was so close to what it could have been, but failed in a few aspects. ♥ THE WORLDBUILDINGFor me, this was the...

    "We were going to get them back. And we were going to end this."I loved this finale but in my opinion it wasn't as good as Traitor to the throne.Amani is still the headstrong demdji we've been following since the beginning but now she's the leader of the rebellion and she must find a way to save Ahmed and the other rebels. I still really like her, she knows she's not a leader but she tries her best.I also love her relationship with Shazad, they a...

    4.5* Amazingly fast-paced conclusion! I found this book (and trilogy) to be vastly entertaining with amusing characters and a well-built world. There was richness to the culture created in this trilogy by the author. For some reason, the culture she created in these books really gained my interest. First and foremost, I am happy with the conclusion though there are parts that were tough to accept (not going to lie, we do get connected with charac...

    4/5 stars “The Rebel Prince will rise again. He will bring a new dawn. A new desert.” What a fantastic finale! Wow! This series has been absolutely wonderful from start to finish, and now I'm just so heartbroken that it's over. I was initially worried about starting this book because normally I don't seem to enjoy the last book in a series much; but this definitely wasn't the case here. Hero at the Fall was an action-packed, thrilling finale ...
  • Jeann (Happy Indulgence)
    THAT WAS SO GOOD IMMA CRY. But seriously all the magic, the mythical Arabian setting with the Western twist, the rebellion and the wonderful friendships, I loved everything so much!I loved how all the way through the series it kept its super fast, action packed pace and so much happened. There's never a dull moment as we're taken to the sandswept desert setting, small towns, luxurious imperial palaces, mythical caves... The setting is so rich and...
  • Gabry
    Assolutamente perfetto!Questa trilogia è diventata una delle mie preferite di sempre. Amo l’ambientazione, lo stile di scrittura, i miei e le leggende, i personaggi, la storia!Leggete questa saga e restare stregato dal deserto e da ciò che vi deve raccontare!
  • Maryanne
    I couldn't have asked for a better ending. But even if the desert forgot a thousand and one of our stories, it was enough that they would tell of us at all. That long after our deaths, men and women sitting around a fire would hear that once, long ago, before we were all just stories, we lived.Ahead of us, in the garden, a fire flickered to life.And the storyteller began.
  • Leona Carstairs
    This is one of those absolutely BRILLIANT series that don't get the amount of attention they deserve! This book ruined me. It broke my heart into five million worthless shards and had me sobbing as I read those intense last 90 or so pages. *heart wails just thinking about it* It was such an epic, intense, marvelous conclusion, and is definitely my favorite volume from the series. I can't even think right now. My brain has shut down, as it often d...
  • Justine
    4.5 stars This was a great conclusion to a super enjoyable series. I loved the worldbuilding, the middle eastern influence, and the whole desert themed setting. This series ended up being, for me, one of those better than expected reads.

    Review can be found on *Milky Way of Books*The amazing ending to this spectacular series couldn't have been better! Amani and co must battle not only the Sultan but also the outside of their borders forces which want to destroy their homeland. I truly enjoyed every part of it, even the tragic ones. And I'm referring to THAT scene towards the ending which had me bawling like a baby!Jin was also one of my favorites! Even that Djinn under the mounta...

    A fantastic conclusion to an amazing series. I'm really getting into Indie Fantasy these days.
  • Grace
    ||UPDATE!!! The day after I finished this I found an extremely skinny dog on my run and I took her to the animal hospital. When they asked me to name her I instantly said Amani!||That was...... incredibleSuch a bitter sweet moment for me. I will never forget this story, it will stay with me always.These characters have been like friends to me. As weird as that may sound. I know I’ll think of them everyday. Reminding me of the story that spoke t...

    Mi è piaciuto moltissimo, meno del secondo che secondo me resta il migliore della trilogia, ma è comunque la fine perfetta per questa storia!Serie super consigliata a chi cerca un fantasy ben strutturato e con ambientazione e personaggi molto diversi dal solito, con atmosfere dalla mille e una notte.Se volete saperne di più vi lascio la mia recensione completa qui:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=78PNa...

Wonderful finale to a kickass trilogy!I received a free copy of this book from Allen & Unwin in exchange for an honest review.

  • Jen (The Starry-Eyed Revue)
    I'm sad that this series is over, but what a ride! As with any finale, you can't expect everyone to make it out alive, but I was even more worried for these characters because they've become some of my absolute favorites...and with a war coming, it was likely I was going to shed some tears. That said, I'm ecstatic with how this conclusion played out. Allies turned foes. Djinn turned loose. Fates sealed. And all at a break-neck pace. Then there we...

    Oh, Leute. Ich hatte so hohe Erwartungen an dieses Buch und es war alles, was es sein sollte, und noch so viel mehr. (So viel habe ich seit Crooked Kingdom nicht mehr geweint.) Herzzerreißend und packend und voller Magie und … perfekt. Einfach perfekt.
