Summary

Bloomsbury presents A Vow So Bold and Deadly by Brigid Kemmerer, read by Melissa Bayern, Kate Handford, Davis Brooks and Matt Reeves.

Kingdoms will clash. Choose your side.

Grey has been revealed as the rightful prince of Emberfall. But the kingdom is crumbling fast, torn between his claim and that of the reigning Prince Rhen and Princess Harper.

Newly crowned as queen of the enemy kingdom Syhl Shallow, Lia Mara struggles to rule with a gentler hand than her mother. But as Grey moves closer to claiming the crown of Emberfall, both Harper and Lia Mara are forced to question where they stand - and how far they can follow the dictates of their hearts.

Brigid Kemmerer's heart-pounding saga comes to a thrilling climax, as two kingdoms come closer and closer to conflict - and an old enemy resurfaces who could destroy them all.

Enjoyable, but triggered a pet peeve

I liked the narrators for the most part, although quite often they misread/changed words from the text and even skipped little chunks at times. I read the physical copy while I listened, so I noticed all those mistakes, which in some cases were important ones because they changed the meaning of what was meant in the story, and people that will only listen to the audiobook might be confused. On the more positive side, I quite enjoyed the story and the narration overall, and I think this was an appropriate end to the series.

A good story well told

I liked the audio performances and I’m looking forward to book 4! It’s hard to write a review with no spoilers lol. Good story, enjoyed it all starting to come together

fitting end

A good conclusion, enough and the main story was resolved effectively. It was over pretty quick though and some loose ends where left unresolved.

Underwhelmed- contains spoilers

This book was better than the second but not as good as the first. I can't stand Lia Mara and I can't tell if it's because I was shipping Harper and Grey or because I hate the voice of the actress reading her chapters; possibly both. I really wanted to see a bigger love triangle between Rhen, Harper and Grey but it was practically non-existent. I found the Grey and Lia Mara romance to be ridiculous and the overly obvious plot that she gets pregnant was stupid. I wish I'd stopped at the first book and let my imagination do the rest. The second book was awful and this third is an incredibly underwhelming end to an average trilogy.

Possible Spoilers!

Its not often a series gets better as you read it but I genuinely feel this is the case with HVSBAD, while I wish we had this insight into Rhens mind in book 2 it's better late then never. While Rhen was never my favourite character my a long shot neither was Harper but he deserved more!! There were several loose ends by the end of this series it almost feels like there should be another book to follow up much less it be the end. That being said I really did enjoy Grey and Lia Mara's relationship and interactions a lot more then Harper and Rhens I found the 'my lady' very repetitive so I was happy to see there were very little to none of them like it in this book. I did enjoy it though and it kept me entertained on the might shift!
