    Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || || PinterestReading these books gives me the same sense of heart in throat whimsical awe that I get from watching The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina or from listening to Halestorm It's a combination of enjoying something epic and basking in essence of girl powerWhat I love most about the LightworldDarkworld series is that each book stands on its own while contributing to the series As I said before in my review of CHILD OF DARKNESS UEENE OF LIGHT is a star crossed love story with an underdog and CHILD OF DARKNESS is a tale of courtly intrigue VEIL OF SHADOWS is a different story still a traditional fantasy style epic featuring love redemption and betrayalIf I told you I didn't spend most of this book figuratively gnawing on my fingernails I'd be lying Armintrout proved early on that she was not averse to killing off beloved characters and unlike Game of Thrones where you expect it and even become inured to it with these books it always came as an unpleasant shock and never really stopped hurting I'm still upset about the second bookOne thing I noticed some reviewers saying in their reviews of CHILD OF DARKNESS was that they hated what Ayla became and thought Cerridwen was even annoying I think that's fair but Cerridwen was a spoiled and sheltered child distanced from her parents and anxious to literally and metaphorically spread her wings Her actions at the end of the second book sent a major tragedy in motion and when we begin this book Cerridwen is still struggling under the enormous burden of her guilt She matures a lot over VEIL OF SHADOWS learning not just what it takes to become a good person but also what it takes to be a good ueen It's a hard lesson and it's meted out in painSpeaking of pain let's talk about Cedric who suffered almost as much as Cerridwen in the previous book I liked Cedric from the get go because he's a master assassin and a faery babe and that's hot AF He wasn't a love interest until this book and his growing relationship with Cerridwen seriously hurt my heart There were two moments in here where I was on the verge of tears I'm a huge fan of the tortured hero trope see my review for THE COMPANION and Armintrout is good at itBetween the doomed romance the epic battles the creative world building and the court intrigue there's just some really good scenes in here that will stay with you My favorites were the first sex scene between Cerridwen and Cedric even though it hurt me and the scene when Cerridwen rides to challenge her enemy in tattered blood stained robes on the back of a white bull Holy cinematic moment Batman I really really recommend these books to anyone looking something differentI'm going to go weep uietly now What a way to end the series4 to 45 stars

    A wonderful transformation of a spoiled child Cerridwen is mature and exudes confidence befitting of the true ueene of Faes First she must deal with Danae To fufill her destiny she needs be patient and wait until the time is right to fight Cedric his character as always strong and loyal His relationship with Cerridwen gets intense and bittersweetA page turner of a read – the struggles the deceits the fights and best of all the love between Cerridwen and Cedric

    Well I have to admit with the conclusion of ueene Of Light I was concerned whether I would enjoy this series Some elements were present from the get go The writing was beautifully crafted the LightworldDarkworld areas were intriguing the politics were different than I have run across before But I never felt close to part faepart human Ayla or her lover the fallen angel Malachi perhaps because they didn't have enough 'humanity' for me to connect to Plus you know first novels always have a tendancy to be bogged down with background set up especially in a world so vastly different from our own By Child of Darkness I knew I was hooked Child of Darkness see Ayla ruling over the Fae Lightworld and her daughter Cerridwen flirting with an Elf who doesn't know who she really is But Cerridwen is young and had never been trained to take over her mother's throne because the fae are nearly immoratal But Cerridwen accidentally betrays her mother and her people and a war starts between the Elves and the ueene's lightworld The Elves call upon vicious blood thirsty creatures called waterhorses to attack the Lightworld Soon there are very few of the fae left living The end of Child of Darkness and the beginning of Veil of Shadows see Cerridwen and her appointed future mateconsort Cedric leaving the destroyed kingdom underworld and attempting to meet up with another group of Fae living above ground in an area hidden from the humans and their 'enforcers' by magic Their is another ueene ruling these fae but ueene Danae was never a part of the line of the original ueene and Cedric and Cerredwen plan to gain rule over those people First they must make sure to keep themselves alive and to play at ueene Danae's games I think I still enjoyed the story to Child of Darkness best of the three novels but Veil of Shadows was a wonderful book in its own right and a very worthy finale to this series I felt closer to Cedric and Cerredwen and I approved of her reasons for wanting the throne It was amazing watching the transformation from spoiled child to unselfish and strong ueene Eually exciting was watching the relationship between Cedric and Cerredwen change In the first book he was with ueen Mabb and the second with a human gypsy so to see how he changed with each relationship also made for an intriguing character I like this series leaps and bounds over Blood Ties although I like it too and if this is the true end of LightworldDarkworld I look forward to reading of anything by Jennifer Armintrout If she ever has an opportunity to continue this story though I will be first in line to pick it up I hope fantasy readers will not hesitate to read this series

    I'm not sure how I feel about this book I picked it up because I love Jenny Trout's blog not realising it was the third book in a series I haven't read whoops and I have to say kudos to Jenny for that because I was actually able to follow the story surprisingly well considering I had misssed two whole books worth of story And I tore through it at times genuinely enjoying it particularly through the middle It lost me again a bit at the end and unfortunately I found Cerridwen to be utterly infuriating and not a character I enjoyed at all Cedric was fun though and there was certainly a section through the middle of the book that I found uite entertaining Perhaps if I had read the previous two books I would have enjoyed it hard to say At any rate it was fun enough I didn't hate it but not sure I'd be reaching for another one any time soon

    Definitely my favorite out of the trilogy I think the author does a decent job of showing cerridwen and Cedric's PTSD from the second book I also think she does a good job with the chosen one trope and even though you know about the chosen one I was still surprised at the ending

    So I finished up this series LightworldDarkworld a trilogy by Jennifer Armintrout The first book had a lot of character and world building but still managed to be a good read I really love to read books on fae and that was the reason I chose to read this series The second book was fabulous and I loved it The third book just fell short I didn't feel fulfilled I didn't have any warm fuzzy feelings in my tummy I just didn't feel much at all I read it I finished it and I really didn't have much of an opinion on it didn't hate it but didn't love it I still gave it 3 stars but I have to say I was a bit disappointed in the final book in the series I was expecting much I would recommend this series to peeps who like this genre but know going in that it isn't going to blow your socks off It is a good way to pass some time an enjoyable way I do plan on reading books by this author

    I've just finished the Lightworld Darkworld saga and well thank goodness it's over Overall these books were disappointing and really didn't live up to their full potential There's a novel concept here but really the three books together were not cohesive and honestly mostly the characters made me really mad I hated all of them probably 90% of the time Which isn't a great way to spend 900 pages worth of time So I probably wouldn't recommend this trilogy to anyone But if you're reading it now you might as well finish Veil of Shadows because personally I think it's the most likeable out of the three And at least you get a few answers at the end of it all

    At first I thought that the author skipped parts of the life of the series but now I realize that she was just choosing the best parts the important parts so to speak of the generations seen in this book The books sums up the series nicely You are left with hope There was also a little misleading by the author I didn't expect that Cerridwen's solution would be so simple and when it seemed it was I was disappointed I literally thought Boy that was the climax of the book? But Armintrout does have surprises This book definitely have romance stuff in it Armintrout focused on the physical relationship bt Cerriedwen and her lover alot but in the end it makes sense since it was an integral piece of the series Though it was still a little gross that he was so old

    This has to be my least favorite out of the trilogy Cerridwen was still a spoiled brat and reacted to things before deciding if it was is the smart thing to do I honestly felt sorry for Cedric to be stuck with her knowing full and well that they were going to end up together anyways This book kinda fell flat without Ayla and Malachi but it was enjoyable with a weak ending that was a little to cheesy pie to me

    What kind of cop out novel was this? The first two were amazing I couldn't stop praising them but then there was this forced romance forced plot contrived villains and treachery Everything about this screamed amateurish while the first two were a pleasant dark force of nature I'm saddened by this ending
