  • Jennifer
    The Brightest Embers is the third and final installment in Jeaniene Frost's Broken Destiny trilogy. This was a fast-paced ending to an interesting and original urban fantasy story which I enjoyed overall. The writing style felt a bit young (relationship angst, poor communication) despite the leads being in a married relationship, and this finale ended quite abruptly which confused me, leaving me wondering if there might me a novella or such to co...

    3-3.5 stars! Honestly, I wish there could've been more at the end! It seemed too abrupt of an ending for a final book of a series. Review to come!Thanks to the publisher for generously providing me an ARC to review.

    Jeaniene Frost once again proves how amazing she is as a writer with The Brightest Embers. I've loved her books since I read my first Cat and Bones book and couldn't put it down. I love that she has branched out to other areas of the paranormal outside the vampire world. She creates such incredible stories. The Broken Destiny series was a wild ride, for sure. I don't want to say it isn't as good as the Cat and Bones books because it really is, es...

    I was so excited to see how Ivy and Adrian were going to come out on top with this one. While I enjoyed the story and the exciting ride, the end of the story left me feeling a little bit like I was left hanging. The main storyline was concluded, but we were left wondering what happened with some secondary characters and storylines. I would have liked those wrapped up a little more.

    Actual Rating: 4.5 StarsSee the full review at HarlequinJunkie.comThe Brightest Embers was a pulse-pounding, insanely epic ending to the Broken Destiny trilogy and I hated to put it down for even a second. The emotions were more intense and the stakes higher than ever for our hero and heroine but they faced everything head on with courage–and with the knowledge that their love could conquer just about anything. “I told you once before, my eve...

    This review was originally published at Vampire Book Club.When I read the first book in the Broken Destiny series, I likened it to Supernatural. The Brightest Embers doubles down on that similarity in a glorious fashion while packing in so much romance and a heroine who will not allow others to define her or set her course.Basically, The Brightest Embers is nonstop adventure of a book with fights that literally bring the roof down and the kind of...

    So this is 3.5* for me, I was tempted to round up to 4* but there were a a few too many issues for me.I enjoyed this series and this last book was the best of all of them. The pacing was good and there was plenty of action. I even teared up a few times and laughed at others. I did feel the ending was too abrupt though. It just felt like there should've been a little more resolution, and maybe a reunion with Brutus and Jasmine, maybe? Or an epilog...

    Oh, wow, this book was just incredible! I loved reading it, and it was just so freaking fantastic! I wish we'd gotten more of a ending, though!

    I was nervous going into this book. I really did not like the last book and I am always nervous when I start the last book in a series.. actually I usually put off reading the last book in a series but I.. I hate that I am about to say this but I wanted to get this series over with. I love Jeaniene Frost. I re-read the Night Huntress series and the Night prince series multiple times a year. I am obsessed with them but this one just kind of fell f...

    4.5 starsFantastic series.
  • Malinda
    3.5-4 starsThis was a pretty good conclusion to the series. I've liked Ivy and Adrian from the beginning and have wanted to see them find happiness together. Unfortunately, although they soul-bind themselves together in book #2, they do still have some drama to get past. Adrian still tends to lie (even if it's just to protect Ivy) and Ivy realizes he's lying but doesn't know what's being kept from her (which was at the end of book #2). So there's...

    Full review to come.The Brightest Embers is teh final book in the Broken Destiny series and it gives us the last part of Ivy and Adrian's story. This book finishes the adventure we started with the first of the series and gives us an action filled ending that pulls us in deeper and leaves us guessing. Though Ivy and Adrian's story concludes - I felt there were a few things I'd have liked to see more resolution from. Ivy is one of my favorite hero...
  • Omoye
    Not my fave Frost series. I’ve loved every other series and most novellas this woman has written. The Night Prince series is immortalized as one of my favorites. Who doesn’t love Cat and Bones adventures? And don’t get me started on my love for Mencheres and my lust to read Ian’s series. With that said, I read this series with the same huh expectations but I knew since the first book, Frost’s literary magic wasn’t here. The Broken Des...

    3.5 Stars....a step down from previous books.I’ve really enjoyed this series. This first two books were great, interesting world and plot line, interesting characters. I’ve always felt these didn’t quite hit the high of the Cat & Bones series, but I was certainly eagerly anticipating each instalment. I felt The Brightest Embers was the worst of the three I’m afraid. I’m not sure what’s happened, but the first half of the book felt lik...

    Initial Thoughts: Though the angst was high and a bit too much, this final adventure for Ivy and Adrian was interesting. I liked the twists. However, the strife between Ivy and Adrian (especially Ivy's ranting) was annoying. Adrian lies...he's half-demon. Most people lie, especially when they want to protect someone. The seemingly constant war of Adrian keeping secrets and Ivy getting bent out of shape was too redundant. For two adults (they are ...

    I have loved Jeaniene Frost since I read her Cat and Bones series. I love her writing and this series has been no different. I was excited to see where she was going to take Ivy and Adrian's story. I thought this was a great conclusion, but I wanted so much more. I felt it was a little abrupt and there were some things left open that I hope she writes more and addresses. Otherwise, I love these characters and this storyline. So fun and exciting. ...
  • Marie Pedrick
    I enjoyed this book though I think if your wanting to read this I’d definitely recommend reading the first two beforehand. The book makes sense but does refer back to the previous stories.Though when you’ve read them come back and read this. The story pulls you into a darker side to a world you already know. Follow Ivy as she battles Demons to save mankind using Devine weapons with the help of her husband and her sister. This review was writt...
  • Brenda
    I love this series so much, Can I explain why? Hmmmm... I love Ivy’s goodness and concern for others, even the way she loves Brutus the pet. I enjoyed the Biblical relics and the good vs evil fight. I was glad to see the heavenly realms and angels depicted in a positive light. I also enjoyed Ivy and Adrian’s relationship, especially the soul tethering and how they showed their devotion in this book particularly. The relationship was sweet, nu...
  • Michele Evans
    Great finale for an awesome series!!! In this final book of the series, Ivy and Adrian must find the final holy relic to set free all of the human prisoners kept in the demon realms. Adrian must fight against his nature to protect Ivy, knowing that this act may prove deadly for Ivy and he may have to lose her.This book kept me glued from beginning to end. Was impossible to put down until I finished it!!
  • Beth
    When I read the first book in this trilogy (likely 4 years ago now), I was worried that the plot had taken on too big a challenge to wrap up in 3 relatively short books. Books 2 and 3 managed to keep adding twists and turns to the initial challenge without overwhelming the story. All said, in a world where paranormal romance series seem endless, I am delighted with a story that has a complicated plot, exciting world building, and a satisfying end...
  • Donetta Wheeler
    OK So I lost faith for one minute that Ivy did give her life to save the trapped humans but I should have known better. I am sad that this was the conclusion to a great story but as they say all good things must come to an end.I will just believe that Ivy and Adrian have a very happy ever after. I extremely enjoyed their adventure
  • Melissa
    Good but needed more at the endThis book was a good conclusion to the series... except I felt it ended a chapter or 2 early. I didn't feel like it ended at the right spot and that we should have had a follow up chapter to wrap it all up some more. Other wise the book is action packed and hard to put down.
  • Timothy Skilton
    This is the third and last book in this series. The series is a fairly unique paranormal adventure/romance with a nice spin. It's very goal focused, but the romance is integral to the story and has its own twists. The cast of characters is interesting and diverse and the story has a good cadence. The plotline is fun and kept me guessing. Overall it was a pleasure to read.
  • Meryl Markowitz
    Fantastic end to the seriesThis book was an incredible ending to the series. So many highs and lows. I was weeping, I was laughing, I was gasping in surprise. I loved the way Adrian and Ivy loved each other so intensely. I loved the way Ivy loved Brutus the gargoyle. I loved the ending, but I am sad to see this series end.
  • Kathleen
    Captivating as alwaysI just love Jeaniene Frost's work. Thoroughly enjoyed the conclusion of this adventure. Held my breath through many of the scenes. Had me going up and down with anxiety. We visited some beautiful sounding locales on this ride. Halfway through the book I wanted to start a list of all these places so I could visit them myself.
  • Nancy
    Minor Spoilers ahead Not quite what expected. I loved the Night Huntress Series. This was not as good. The Brightest Ember felt a little flat. I didn't feel the urgency I felt in the first two books. The need to free the humans was more of a back story and really just glossed over. Almost as an after thought. I just wish there was more to it.
