    This review can also be found on my blog: Divided Earth is the final book of The Nameless City trilogy, and wraps the narrative up in a thrilling and satisfying conclusion!Preceded by books The Nameless City and The Stone Heart, the story takes place in the fictional city Daidu, named by the Dao’s, the most recent conquering nation. However, due to centuries of conquest, the inhabitants of many differ...

Readers do need to read this series in order to understand and enjoy the story fully.Kai and Rat might need to sacrifice everything for peace. The city is under new rule, and if they cannot stop the tragic events ...

    The thrilling conclusion to the Nameless City trilogy! As Rat and Kaidu try to figure out how to get back at Erzi and Mura and subvert their plan to destroy the Yisun army with an ancient and powerful weapon, Kai's father and the monk Joah run into old friends...or possibly enemies.I loved this MG graphic novel trilogy so much. The artwork is absolutely stunning, and the storyline is riveting and doesn't shy away from tough topics like colonialis...

    My son owns and has read the first two books in this series, and I know he enjoyed them, but I went in to number three basically blind. Nonetheless, I seriously enjoyed it. I probably would have benefitted from the context the first two books would have provided, but it wasn't strictly necessary. I love the complexity of the relationships in this graphic novel-- both between individual characters and between different social groups. The story had...
  • Molly
    The third volume in The Nameless City trilogy does not disappoint. Finally, Rat and Kaidu are allowed to witness a peaceful resolution between the city's conquered and its conquerors - something that rarely happens in reality, so it's very nice to see it in fiction. Faith Erin Hicks' art, as always, is sharp and delightful.I received access to this title via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
  • Todd Glaeser
    Thank you to Netgalley for the free e-copy. I really liked the first two books in this series and this is a great conclusion. I don't "know" if this is true, but I "feel" like the art is scratchier, not as polished as the previous books. But I'm not sure.I do like how the story concludes, that violence is not inevitable.
  • Kris Springer
    Great series; wonderful art and a message about friendship and hope and trust. A very touching relationship between the 2 protagonists, developed over the course of the 3 books. I will probably go back and read all 3, right in a row, to re-experience the character development and remind myself of some of the plot twists from the 1st 2. Worth the read!
  • Katie Florida
    I have loved Rat and Kai from the beginning and I loved seeing how their story came to a close. Their character arc, the story of the city, and the story of tragedy and hope, are truly beautiful. This series was truly remarkable. ♥ I have loved Rat and Kai from the beginning and I loved seeing how their story came to a close.

  • Dan
    An absolutely satisfying conclusion to one of my favorite graphic novel series in the past few years.
  • Suzanne
    The Divided Earth is a satisfying conclusion to the Divided Earth trilogy. Without sharing any spoilers, the storyline wraps up in a way that makes sense, and leaves everyone changed. There's a feeling of justice being served, even if not everything is perfect. In particular, Rat contrasts with Mura so well in the final actions of the series. The pairs in this book - Kaidu and Erzi, Rat and Mura, the Dao and rival nations - each deliver a great e...
  • Kellee
    A perfect continuation of the story with a look at politics and family with action and awesome characters just like the first two volumes.
  • Chris
    Review based on a digital ARC provided via Netgalley.In the conclusion of The Nameless City trilogy, Faith Erin Hicks brings all of the threads from the previous books together to weave a satisfying conclusion. To begin, the Dao continue to occupy the Nameless City, with Erzi as the General of All Blades, bent on control of the city and destruction of all who oppose him. To that end, he has gained control of a book that holds the formula for napa...

    The City is once again the crossroads of impending conflict. Erzi has his right hand woman preparing the ancient secret napatha they recovered from the hidden book of the founders of the City. Erzi doesn’t trust anyone with it but the two of them, and he’s none too stable since the coup. Meanwhile Kaidu’s father (the Dao general) and Joah the monk are trying to contact the Yisun army outside the city before the attack to see if a more peace...

    I received a free digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Whew. It feels like it's been forever since I read Volume 2 of this series. This volume starts where The Stone Heart left off. Rat and Kaidu must deal with the fractured and tragic events that have once again put The Nameless City in turmoil. What's even worse, there's an army on the horizon. If something isn't done soon, there will be war and the cycle of death and viol...
  • Siina
    I really enjoy Hicks' The Nameless City series and The Divided Earth was a wonderful continuation to the story. The best part is the political aspect of it and the fact that there are no bad guys, just people with different views and reasons. In this third part our heroes end up in the middle of shenanigans and basically no one trusts no one. Everyone is after the book that contains the formula for powerful weaponry, gun powder I take it. The Nam...
  • Veronica
    ARC via Netgalley. I'm ambivalent about the conclusion to this series. The art is absolutely beautiful and I very much enjoyed the characters, especially Kaidu's parents, but something about the way the opposition between Rat and Miura is set up rubs me the wrong way. It's hard to put my finger on what it is exactly -- maybe that Rat's arguments against Miura's nihilism are all so naive? Even though Rat is clearly the person the reader is meant t...
  • Book Nerd Shenanigans
    I enjoyed the premise of this series but it left me wanting. It was hard to get through honestly. The art work was cute and interesting though. Given the limited space a graphic novel provides there were elements of the story that seemed to be missing. Characters were mildly fleshed out and overall they seemed two-dimensional. There was not enough to really connect to them and their troubles. The world building could be fantastic with more space ...
  • Tracey
    children's graphic novel (4th grade and up?) - diverse action/adventure (lots of fighting in this one).**Reviewed from uncorrected e-galley**We get to read some of the backstories in this one, finding out more about the main characters (Kai and his family, Mura), but my overall impression (from scrolling through this title on my Adobe reader) was fighting, fighting, action, action! It also portrays the different views/different sides in this part...
  • Kiri
    Thank you NetGalley for allowing me to read a digital copy of this book in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own.Just like the first two novels, this third and final volume was enjoyable. Like her other works, I really enjoy Faith Erin Hicks' artwork and storytelling. She weaves a fantastic plot of politics, intrigue, and loyalty within friendship and to your birthplace. It was a great follow-up to the other two. The only thing I felt la...
  • Alicia
    If it ends here, as a trilogy since the epilogue was essentially "three years later", it was a well-rounded journey about conquerors and their conquered, finding connections and understanding, and family. I'm a fan of the illustration style including the text but how Hicks so eloquently portrays the actions, character, and situations of the characters with ease and often without any words, just emotions in the backdrop of our nameless city that c...
  • Geoffrey
    (Note: I received an advanced electronic copy of this book courtesy of NetGalley) The final edition of this series has it all- action, surprises, secrets revealed, and moments that hit straight at the heart. To use a bit of a cliche, my only genuine complaint is that it's over. Faith Erin Hicks has crafted together a fantastic world packed with equally wonderful characters, and if I can't help but admit that I now dream of either a prequel or seq...
  • Were Wolf
    Thank you to the publisher for this ARC.A good conclusion for an enjoyable trilogy.When the powers that be are charging head first into war can Rant and Kaidu outsmart them and find a real path for peace? What do you do when your powerful enemy wants to bring your world down in flames? Hicks manages to continue weaving her perfect combination of political intrigue, character development, and action packed narrative into a perfect middle grade rea...
  • Sarah
    A heartfelt and very satisfying conclusion to the trilogy! *Librarian voice:* recommended to fans of Tamora Pierce and Avatar: the Last Airbender; middle school reading level but enjoyable by older teens and adults too! And, frankly, recommended to any of us who are interested in balancing worldbuilding, respectful diversity, and easy-to-love, memorable characters. Faith Erin Hicks is masterful at it! This would make a fantastic, three-generation...
  • Alyssa
    I read this as an E-Arc via NetGalley (thanks NetGalley!). THE DIVIDED EARTH is a pretty stellar conclusion to THE NAMELESS CITY series. Some of my favorite parts included truly sympathetic and complex antagonists, Kai's awesome (and tall!) warrior mother, and a beautiful epilogue. I can't wait to buy the entire trilogy for my library!
  • Rebecca
    A thrilling and emotionally satisfying conclusion to Faith Erin Hicks' Nameless City trilogy. Perfect for fans of Avatar: The Last Airbender and Amulet, the series is beautifully drawn and filled with fascinating, complex characters and a top-notch story.
  • Marta Boksenbaum
    A wonderful conclusion to this epic story. I do feel that the conclusion is a bit too easily found and there is a lot of agreement that seems unlikely to me, but this is a fantasy, so I’ll try to just enjoy it.
  • Hannah
    Satisfying conclusion to one of my favorite graphic novel series. Would recommend to anyone who enjoyed Avatar: The Last Airbender for its humor, themes, and setting.World-building, action-packed, funny, diverse, character duos, politics for young readers. Colorful, textured, detailed art.
