    Holy crap on a cracker!!! I loved it! I loved the hell out of this book!! I meant to re read the first two but wasn't able to but I'm hoping to re/read all three. I hope the last book knocks the series out of the ballpark! These characters are awesome! Actually, I think I might need to re/read the 4 books in the beginning of this world and then start these again! Who knows! I'm just happy with this book for now! Happy Reading! Mel 🖤🐺MY BLOG...

    I just love this whole world so much! I still recommend reading the Seven Realms series before this one (mostly so you can be upset when certain characters are killed off here... so much fun yay). It's a bit harder for me to get into each book in this series right away since each one introduces more new characters, but by the end of each book most familiar faces are back and I'm desperate for the sequel. I'm actually kind of glad I discovered the...

    This review was originally posted on Books of My Heart When I first read Flamecaster, I told myself be careful what you wish for. This Shattered Realms series is set 25 years after The Seven Realms series, which is one of my all time favorite YA fantasy series. Because that is the case, the character shift to Han and Raisa’s children being the main characters meant they are not safe. Some of the characters I love from the first series are going...

    4.5⭐Reading this now was ill advised. Now there’s the dreaded year-long wait for the finale and I’m still no closer to answers than I was in book one. This was amazing! I’ve been waiting for Evan Strangward story since Shadowcaster and CWC did NOT disappoint. I don’t know how everything will be wrapped up in the next book since there are loose ends literally at every turn but I sure am excited to find out. 4.5⭐️Reading this now w...

    This book was exactly what I’d waited for, it did not disappoint. I love this series, this world, these characters. My god, there were so many bomb shells that I’m still sort of reacting to. I’m just a sucker for it all, all the moving pieces and the way the storylines weave together and the endless strategy of it. C.W. Chima never fails to surprise me at every turn. These are the kind of novels you have to set aside time to give your full ...

    Actual rating: Yes, that’s 5/5 stars!!All the stars I can throw in there!! 😍😍Wow... It’s been a while since I’ve read a book that I honestly could NOT put down!! But of course, it had to be Cinda Williams Chima’s world that enchanted and wrapped me up completely in the characters and their intertwining stories! Because, wow...Plot: This book has our storm creating pirate on the cover (Evan Strangward 😍), but it’s about all the ...
  • Travis
    This was definitely better then Shadowcaster for me. Not that Shadowcaster was bad it was just missing elements that I love about CWC's books. I kind of love how each of these books takes us into the lives of characters before the start of Flamecaster and kind of directs us on how they got from point A to point B. In this we followed Evan who is an orphan who was raised by Pirates until he finds out that he is so much more then that. I will leave...
  • Azbaqiyah
    Oh my...I'm seriously getting a hangover from this one...The first earlier chapters begin a couple of years before the even in Flamecaster happen first then slowly it's continue where the last part happen in the previous book left. I really recommend to a new reader who wants to read this series it would be better if you do a binge read. Trust me it would be awsome.The storyline are getting far more complicate and there's a lot of surprise elemen...
  • Susan
    Wasn’t ready for the end. Can’t wait for the next book with hope that Jenna and Ash are reunited, Lyss and Hal are reunited, and most importantly Ash and Lyss are finally reunited
  • Beth
    Well. I read this. And it's not just a bridge book, but a boring bridge book. (I actually thought this would be the third book of a trilogy; when I got to chapter 40 or so, and there weren't enough pages left for a resolution, judging by the book's glacial pace - well. I was not happy.)I can't work up the energy for a rant because I simply don't care anymore. I already ranted about how this series wrecks the worldbuilding of the previous series; ...
  • Zachary Flye (Zach's YA Reviews)
    Review:Characters: I honestly don't know how to write this section because there are just so many characters that this installment focuses on. I mean, I went into this book expecting it to feel like the other installments, a change in focus, this one on Evan Strangward, his story, and what's going on in Carthis, which we sort of get, while possibly getting a few chapters here and there continuing the previous installment and showing what happened...

    "The end of this story isn't written yet, the journey through it is important"I just finished this book like five minutes ago (and spend the last five minutes screaming "WHAT!!! WHAT!!! You're not allowed to end a book like that!!!"), so I'm going to try to write a coherent review. Beware: This will probably be very spoilery, so if you haven't read the book yet and are not interested in being spoiled, read at your own risk.Okay, so in the beginni...
  • Stacy
    No spoilers in this rapid review of Stormcaster. I really enjoyed it and give it 4.25 stars. Chima’s books have it all: intriguing characters, a unique magical system, and great worldbuilding. My love for this world grows with each installment, just as it did in Seven Realms, Chima’s original series in this setting.Stormcaster opens in the past to tell Evan Strangward’s backstory beginning at age thirteen. Many incidents and people in his y...

    Shattered Realms - Trailer "We need to ask forgiveness, not permission!" Actually rating 3.5 starsThis was a hard book to rate, compared to the first two books, Stormcaster was a let down to me. This book suffered from the middle syndrome, not much had happened , I felt more that this book is a preparation to the final book in the series. Regardless there were a few things I disliked so I will put the things I loved or disliked but be aware ......
  • hpboy13
    I am lost for words, at just how incredible this book was. It’s far and away my favorite of the Shattered Realms, probably the best book Cinda’s written since The Crimson Crown. Two books of setup (plus half of this one) begin paying off in the most glorious ways as the arc of this series comes into clearer focus.To say this series is ambitious is an understatement. Stormcasters adds an EIGHTH point of view to the Shattered Realms – Evan St...
  • Bethany Miller
    Stormcaster is the third book in the Shattered Realms series, which happens a generation after the events in the Seven Realms series. Both series are in contention for my all time favorite fantasy series, and I can’t figure out why they don’t get more buzz. Somehow Chima just gets better and better with each book. For those uninitiated to the greatness of the Seven Realms, I would not recommend jumping in with this book because you will be ve...
  • Belinda (TheBookBuddies)
    Minor spoilers ahead.4.5 stars. This series really does get better. Well, I got half of my wish to come true. Ash and Raisa reunited finally. I can’t lie, I cried. Just like I knew I would. God, I just miss Han so much. Honestly, I still can’t seem to connect to any of the new characters as much as I do the old characters from Seven Realms. However, I did get pretty attached to Destin and Evan this time around. Their story in the beginning is...
  • Francesca Heavens
    YOU GUYS. I am just going to put this out there first that C.W. Chima has to be one of the greatest YA authors we have seen in years! -Her world-building is absolutely UNTOUCHABLE. Just when you thought the Seven Realms couldn’t get any more complex or interesting she pulls you right back in head first! We are now on the high seas and off to exotic places across the Indio. A world with wizards and pirates? Yes, sign me up! -The characters, old ...

  • Michelle Elizabeth
    I'm the kind of reviewer that can pick apart a book I hate, but find myself at a loss for words when I find a new favorite, so I'll just state facts: I'm sad it's over, I need the next book now, and I'd be happiest if there were 10 more books planned in this series.

    *Source* Library*Genre* Young Adult / Fantasy*Rating* 3.5*Thoughts*Stormcaster, by author Cinda Williams Chima, is apparently the third out of four installments in the Shattered Realms series, with the final installment supposedly releasing in 2020. If you haven't read this book yet, let me give up a heads up. This is a story filled with multiple storylines from Evan Strangward to Princess Alyssa ana’Raisa and everyone else who has been introdu...
  • Lesa Divine
    I'll say I enjoyed this one more than part 2. Got to see more into other characters life. Lots of double crossing on top of double crossing. I hate I'll have to wait to see what happens next. How it ended seems like there will be a part 4.
  • Lylah
    This was my favorite book in the Shattered Realms sequel series to the seven realms series so far, my favorite series of all time.If I have one criticism of it it's that it's too short, or maybe too much is happening in it considering the length—there are so many intricate and intertwining storylines to keep track of that sometimes I got confused. Rather than having two main characters and occasionally diverging like in the main series, this se...
  • Andrea Clark
    Wow, I couldn't put this one down. The characters are so expertly woven together. As with the last book of the series the timeline doesn't start off where the previous book ends, which is a little confusing but it's completely understandable why the author decided to go this route. Often times authors throw all these characters at you right at the start and you can't seem to keep them straight. Throughout this series though it has been a gradual ...

  • Raquel Cordeiro
    So... Don't get me wrong, but it is really hard for me to review this. It is like someone is asking me to find flaws in a story a dear friend of mine lived. I can't counter what happened. The writing is in a way that I just believe this is what happened. It couldn't be different. And, since it is my friends history, (my dear friend, I know her/his parents, I know their story, know their friends...) I just have to like it the way it is! When a fri...
