Hero at the Fall by Alwyn Hamilton


This series turned out to be nothing like I expected, and is most assuredly one of my favorites!

Publication: November 15 2017

Synopsis: When sharpshooter Amani Al’Hiza escaped her dead-end town, she never imagined she’d join a revolution, let alone lead one. But after the bloodthirsty Sultan of Miraji imprisoned the Rebel Prince Ahmed in the mythical city of Eremot, she doesn’t have a choice. Armed with only her revolver, her wits, and her untameable Demdji powers, Amani must rally her skeleton crew of rebels for a rescue mission through the unforgiving desert to a place that, according to maps, doesn’t exist. As she watches those she loves most lay their lives on the line against ghouls and enemy soldiers, Amani questions whether she can be the leader they need or if she is leading them all to their deaths. Is she willing to give up the deepest love she’s ever known to save the country that has betrayed her all her life?

Review/Thoughts: This one took me a little longer to read then the first two books in this series did. I was not ready to start or finish it. Finishing it would mean I’d have to say goodbye to all these wonderful characters and exit their world. The journey would come to an end, and it had grown so much on me!

This book wrapped up this series quite well in my opinion. A lot of death and trauma, and no, I don’t think I’m okay. I cried. I lot more than I care to admit. But, there was plenty of smiling and laughing going on too. Plus glares. This book had a lot to it. This book took us all over Miraji. The first 2 focused on the vast desert and the palace, letting us get comfortable with them and learn about each. This one went all over Miraji, revisiting old places but still introducing us to a few new things as well. Which was interesting. We learned about each place in turn and now, wherever the rebellion went we knew what it was like.

I truly don’t know what to tell you/say about this book. I feel like I’ve expressed just how much I love this series, and it’s books, through my reviews on books 1 & 2. And it all can be repeated about this final installment for the series. There’s love, tears, magic, war, death and so much more! I truly wished I had found out about this series so much sooner than I did. And I’m already itching for a reread, and if I didn’t have other unread books staring at me….well, I probably would restart the series and soak in all that I love about it.
