The Storyteller (Sea of Ink and Gold, #3) by Traci Chee

The Storyteller (Sea of Ink and Gold, #3)

Sefia is determined to keep Archer out of the Guard's clutches and their plans for war between the Five Kingdoms. The Book, the ancient, infinite codex of the past, present and future, tells of a prophecy that will plunge Kelanna in that bloody war, but it requires a boy—Archer—and Sefia will stop at nothing to ensure his safety. The Guard has already stolen her mother, her father, and her Aunt Nin. Sefia would sooner die than let them take a...

    5 FREAKING STARS! This is what creative writing means! Review to come This is a story as vast as the sea,But on its waters, you’ll never be free.No matter your course, your future is set,and destiny laughs as she tightens the net. I am a weeping mess.This book broke and healed my heart at the same time; this book was so innocent and yet so cruel, so fullfuling and yet so shattering; this book was so unique! This book this book this book.....

    *finishes picking the broken pieces of my heart off the floor*If you enjoyed THE READER and THE SPEAKER, you're definitely ready to dive into the epic conclusion of this trilogy. The hidden messages and fun interior design aside, the writing is gorgeous and the story sprawling, and honestly I'm mad there isn't more. THE STORYTELLER is a satisfying, heartbreaking, and poetic finale to Sefia and Archer's story.
  • Linda in Utopia
    I am really not happy with this book.And that's just tragic. I loved The Reader and The Speaker so much, I was very impatient until this third book would finally be published.I was expecting to get sucked right into the world of Kelanna, to just dive through this book with hunger and then be devastated when it has ended.Well, it wasn't a dive. And yes, it ended. From here on will be a hell load of spoilers, soDO NOT READ ON if you want to read it...

    I don't actually have any words. My heart is full, broken, and mending. I am so sad to see my favorite series IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD end. This ending was everything I needed, without me even knowing. If I thought Traci Chee was a mastermind before, woah, this book AMPS EVERYTHING UP! SO many comments on my arc were, "omg...." and that's how it feels. This book takes the characters we know and love, the prophecies, the wars, the relationships, an...

    THIS WAS SO SO GOOD. The Sea of Ink and Gold series is definitely my favorite fantasy series of all time, and I'm so glad it got the ending it deserved. "Look towards the horizon, that's where the adventures are."

  • Samm | Sassenach the Book Wizard
    Yeah! I finished another series! The ending made me sad because like any good YA series conclusion...people die and I liked some of them. I truly just can't praise Traci Chee's writing. I find her voice just so relaxing while still drawing me in.
  • Shenwei
    I spent most of the book internally screaming because it was that intense...and I don't know what to do with myself now that the series is over.😭
  • Evan Quade
    4.5 starsThe story of Sefia and Archer and Captain Reed and all others gathered has come to an end. It was all written, and what was written has come to pass. In the beginning, Sefia lost her parents, soon enough another loved one, she had been nothing but on the run. Then the Book comes into her life. She reads the Book, the Book gave her many things to how she can embrace the future even with the boy she loves so much. But the Book had its flaw...
  • Eloise
    Some books creep up on you, you don't realise how much you love them until you've put them down and realise you've swallowed them in one gulp.Some books feel like a blanket, they warm you up so much you feel safe in them.Some books punch you you in the gut until you cry from pain.This book did all those things.
  • James
    I don't even have words for this book right now. Maybe I'll review this series but not right now. 😭
  • Nicole
    I'm sorry to say I was disappointed by the conclusion of this series! I loved the first two books, but this one was just too meta, and too short-sighted. I basically never want the characters of a book to interact with the actual reader, and also even though I know Sefia was only 16-turning-17, she just kept making choices that resulted in the deaths of dozens of people for Archer's sake. That's taking star-crossed to the extreme.How sad to see m...

    Well, that was disappointing.

    there are a lot of things in this book that i just had a hard time caring about, but my love for sefia and archer pulled me through. this is the first series i've read in a long time where i've read them back to back to back, to completion, and i think that i definitely would've lost steam and (possibly) wouldn't have finished if i hadn't done it that way. i would've forgotten huge chunks. and i'm sure i'll forget things when i reflect on this se...

    THIS BOOK WAS SO WONDERFUL. I loved it. It was such a satisfying ending to the trilogy. I would not want anyone else to end this trilogy any way else. The writing was intriguing and the characters were wonderful, as per usual. I liked the plot twist about the Storyteller; that was an interesting element. I would definitely recommend this book for fantasy readers. This trilogy has become one of my favourites, and Traci Chee has been added to my li...
  • Lulai
    I really enjoy this last book, the thing I loved the most was the writing style, I don't know but there was something a bit unique to this whole serie. And the ending was perfect
  • Annie
    I honestly can’t remember the last time a book made me cry like this. I’m inconsolable that it’s over. This series is truly a work of art and I love it so much.
  • Marte
    ACTUAL RATING: 4.5 ⭐️ Once there was, but it would not always be. This is the ending of ever story. The final book in The Reader-trilogy (previously named The Sea of Ink and Gold-trilogy) has officially confirmed it as one of the most underrated and diverse YA fantasy series I have ever read. For the last time, we are transported to the land of Kelanna – where books, writing and reading are non-existent (aka. every booklover’s worst nig...
  • Abigail Packard
    DNF 50%. Maybe it was because I listened to it, had to return it, hold it, and get it again, but I just didn't like this last book in the series. It was really confusing and I was just lost. I didn't care about any of the characters, especially all the new ones thrown at me, but even the ones that have been there the whole time. I just couldn't bring myself to finish it.
  • Anne
    Actual rating: 4.5The Sea of Ink and Gold series is unlike any series I've read before. I never gave enough credit to Chee beforehand but, I think what she’s doing with her stories is rare. She’s filled it with so many easter eggs and little clues, hints, riddles, that it’s changed a passive activity into an interactive one.I also forgot how meta this book is. There’s this one bit where Sefia asks when will this end? And the answer is “...
  • Grace
    I was too generous to the second book in this trilogy. In retrospect, I see my folly. This is a three star book, and in comparison, THAT was a two-star book. I've rectified the problem now.Anyway, I hope you can hear the venom in my voice when I say that this was FINE. One might even go so far as to say it was perfectly adequate.Book three isn't nearly as torturous as book two was, mostly because Kaito is safely dead. That horrendously annoying o...

    Aussie Reader's 2019 Series Challenge (Read book #2 and #3 of The Reader Trilogy) Actual Rating: 3.5 Stars. This is the final book in the trilogy and while the series has been an okay read, I have had some real issues with the execution of it which means I probably won't ever revisit this world. It took me ages to read the first 300 pages of this book as it just kept going around in circles with Sefia and Archer lamenting what is to come and noth...
  • Kristi
    Full review available on my blog.As expected, this book is a ride, pretty much from beginning to end. If the reader is not following Sefia as she teleports from land to sea, fighting off the Guard while also protecting Archer, then there is Captain Reed and his crew to keep up with, or Ed and his misadventures with his new ragtag group of friends. Despite everything going on, the book is very clearly leading to an epic conclusion involving a war....
