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...

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

  • Simona Bartolotta
    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...

    "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...

    Review to come!
  • Sara
    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...
  • 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...

    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.

    "We were going to get them back.And we were going to end this."I FINALI PERFETTI ESISTONO.
  • Angigames
    L’ultimo capitolo vale tutto il libro! 😍L’autrice è capace di trasformare il suo stile come se si stesse leggendo una vera e propria leggenda realmente accaduta. L’enorme pregio della scrittura della Hamilton è proprio questo: sa raccontare storie, sa far diventare una trama semplice un vero e proprio Mito. Il libro è un susseguirsi di colpi di scena, azione, battaglie e… morti, tanti, uno dietro l’altro… tanto che alla fine ci ...
  • Kate (beautifulbookland)
    Finale books are nerve-wracking. They’re the last stand of characters you’ve come to know and love. All the trials and tribulations they’ve been through in previous books need wrapping up in a way that’s satisfying to the readers. That’s a lot of pressure for authors.Luckily, Alwyn Hamilton has you covered.Hero at the Fall is a perfect finale for this series. The heroines are unapologetically fierce, the romance fantastically swoony, an...

    Such an epic ending, and the feelings were here and real. ^^
  • Rivka
    Okay. So I don't even know where to start but this book was just an emotional rollercoaster! Like seriously. I laughed. I cried. (More like sobbed hysterically). Some of my favorites didn't make it and my heart just broke into million pieces But the last chapter. THAT LAST CHAPTER. Worth all the tears. Such an amazing FUCKING ending!Go read it.
  • Femke
    5 stars!This book was absolutely amazing from start to finish. It was a whirlwind of action and politics and romance. It is a great ending to a story, and more than that it felt 'realistic'. Obviously, this is a fantasy book, so it is not actually realistic, but the fact that lots of people actually died during the battle made me believe it more. It happens so often that authors don't actually kill off characters during big battles, and obviously...

    2.5 stars, really, but it was entertaining and action-packed, so...rounding it up.I think, overall, the Rebel of the Sands series was just okay for me.Nothing special, the characters didn't stand out, the world was interesting, but nothing amazing.Hero at the Fall had a few good moments, but otherwise, I just saw the flaws. The characters didn't seem particularly clever to me, although I think they were meant to. I also didn't get attached to the...

    (4.8/5)AAAAAAHHH HO AMATO QUESTO LIBROOO! Iniziamo!È stata una lettura velocissima e scorrevolissima, come sempre vi consiglio assolutamente questa trilogia perché merita molto! Adesso devo solo recuperare i primi due libri in cartaceo. Mi ricordo ancora quando avevo letto Il Deserto In Fiamme e ho pensato “non mi piacerà questa trilogia, è troppo veloce!” Ed eccomi qui adesso a piangere mentre scrivo questa recensione/booktalk. Ma poi sc...

    "That was what we did. Survive one fight to get to the next. Over and over again until you didn't survive." 5 Glorious stars!This book ABSOLUTELY DESTROYED ME. It was soo good I cannot even wrap my mind around it. The fact that I read this book in only an hour or 5 shows you how much I loved this. I fell in love with the all the characters long ago and same goes for the world. What really made me so happy was the way in which it is written, it i...
  • Selly - Leggere Romanticamente
    La mia recensione sul blog http://www.leggereromanticamente.com/...Rebel. La nuova alba è il terzo e conclusivo romanzo della serie fantasy Rebel of The Sands con protagonista la giovane Demdji Amani. Nei due romanzi precedenti ci siamo affezionati alla protagonista diciassettenne di questa serie, abbiamo scoperto dell'esistenza di numerose creature leggendarie e incontrato molti personaggi secondari, alcuni adorabili e altri veramente spietati....
  • Serena (Cioccolato e Libri)
    Non mi innamoro facilmente delle serie fantasy/distopiche, ma con Rebel mi sono completamente donata ai personaggi, alla storia ed all'autrice.Sono così devota a tutto ciò che viene raccontato nelle pagine di tutti e tre i libri che quasi mi faccio paura da sola.Ho già riletto i primi due volumi e sicuramente rileggerò tra qualche tempo anche questo, perché non posso accettare di non passare più del tempo in compagnia di Amani e Jin.Parlo d...
