  • 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...

    This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.My feelings are a little mixed on this book. I liked it but it didn't wow me in any way. This is the third book in the Broken Destiny series which really does need to be read in order since each book builds on the events of the previous installments. I thought that this book brought the series to a satisfactory conclusion and was a fairly quick listen.Ivy and Adrian continue their que...

    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 have been in a book slump that past couple of days; thank God I had The Brightest Embers to listen to at work. This book, the finale of the Broken Destiny trilogy was fantastic. The conclusion had everything I expect from a Jeaniene Frost book; romance, danger, demons etc... The struggle was real, but good vanquished evil at the last minute. Loved it.

    *Source* Library*Genre* Paranormal, Romance*Rating* 3.5*Thoughts*The Brightest Embers is the third and final installment in author Jeaniene Frost's Broken Destiny series. As the story opens, Ivy Jenkins and her husband Adrian are attempting to find the third and final hallowed weapon that will not only save the thousands of innocent humans trapped in the demon realm, but to do so before any other demon, including Demetrius, can get to it first, a...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    2,5 Stars :(So I hate giving Jeaniene Frost a bad review. She's one of my favourite authors and the one who opened my eyes to the amazingness that is paranormal romance. But I have one rule - if I skim any part of a book, it gets 3 stars or less... and I skimmed a lot of this book. The first book in the series got my attention and I did enjoy it, though Ivy did annoy me a bit from that book already. And the second book wasn't too bad, though I di...

    This review was originally posted on Books of My Heart              I listened to The Beautiful Ashes as a "reread" right before getting The Sweetest Burn.  I was able to get both in digital audio from the library. Now I was also able to finish the trilogy with The Brightest Embers, getting the audio at the library.Ivy is a new adult. Somehow I expected her to be less whiny and at least, learn and grow throughout the series. I was excite...
  • Annie
    Ivy and Adrian face a lot of obstacles in this action packed book. The story is familiar and yet something was missing. It felt a bit rushed, specially at the end.I would like to have seen a bit more, and explore that big surprise and see what comes out of it. I expected it to happen, so when the big reveal came about, I had already predicted it.I wish there was a little bit more emotion between the characters. The whole thing felt like a big rac...

    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...

    Good conclusion to this trilogy. As always with this author's books, I had no trouble getting into it and it kept my interest. Though this story had lots of predictability to it, I still enjoyed it. The ending was definitely abrupt and I think there could've been more exploration into a particular situation. Maybe that will come in a subsequent novella, but the story had enough finality to me that I am satisfied with the end if there isn't more t...

    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!
  • Carrie Humphrey
    Fantastic ending to a fantastic series!
  • 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 high expectations but I knew since the first book, Frost’s literary magic wasn’t here. The Broken De...

    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.
  • H.
    The characters are weirdly immature. Can’t believe that this is Jeaniene Frost’s book, the creator of Cat and Bones. Couldn’t relate at all, such terrible teenage drama.
  • 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...
  • Erin Moore
    I was disappointed with the character development, world building/development, and resolution with this being the final book in the series. Supporting characters had very little depth and I didn't care much about them living or dying, it felt like they didn't do much and they were even basically just dropped off somewhere to chill while the book continued. I also became less invested in the main romance and actually wanted them to fight, I rooted...
  • Kristen Johnson
    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...
  • Kay
    Loved this series. Read books 2 and 3 in 2 days, thank heavens I'm retired! Very satisfying final book, and Jeaniene Frost has a truly wonderful imagination. She kept me glued to the pages, and I just can't figure out how her mind works, but work it does. This has more twists and turns than "the Dragon's Tail", a road just up the way from my home in TN., and she is able to put her protagonists Ivy and Adrian in totally insurmountable situations, ...
  • Marty Tool
    I guess to be honest I started out liking this series. I got the story arc from the first book and liked it, the second just was a repeat of situations over and over and not until the last quarter of the book did it seem to actually move the arc forward, so didn't care for it. This final story, I thought to myself this is more of the same repeat over and over again. The bad guy could have taken her out at any time, it was like those old bad movie...

    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...
  • Betty Lambert
    This book was very good. It is the final book in the Broken Destiny series. Wow..what an end to a series. It had everything ..passion, action, betrayal by others. Ivy and Adrian have conquered their fates and went looking for the last hallowed weapon to harness its power to release the thousands of innocents still trapped in the demon realms. I ended up sitting on the edge of my seat from what Ivy had to go through to get it and then to try and u...
