Book Description

Sept. 26 2011 Healing Wars (Book 3)

War has come.

Nya’s the one who brought it. And the people love her for it.

With Baseer in shambles and Geveg now an impenetrable military stronghold, Nya and the Underground have fled to a safer location—without Tali. Nya is guilt-ridden over leaving her sister behind and vows to find her, but with the rebellion in full swing and refugees flooding the Three Territories, she fears she never will.

The Duke, desperate to reclaim the throne as his own, has rallied his powerful army. And they are on the move, destroying anyone who gets in the way.

To save her sister, her family, and her people, Nya needs to stay ahead of the Duke’s army and find a way to build one of her own. Past hurts must be healed, past wrongs must be righted, and Nya must decide: Is she merely a pawn in the rebellion, a symbol of hope—or is she ready to be a hero?

5.0 out of 5 stars VERY good series conclusion Oct. 4 2011
By Rebecca Allen - Published on
I won't lie: I was a little bit wary going into this. I don't know if it's just my bad luck as a reader, or if there's a problem endemic to YA, but at least four trilogies I've read in recent years have ended with fizzles rather than bangs, even when the first two and a half books have been great. So I am pleased to report: it does not fizzle! After spending two and a half books building up how evil the Duke is, building to a war, and building up Nya's character, the conclusion shines where other books... uh, didn't so much.

It probably isn't fair to do a one-to-one comparison, but without naming any names (ahem) there was a trilogy that concluded last year where an impoverished teenage girl's main goal was to save her little sister, and as she tried to accomplish that she became the symbol of a rebellion against an oppressive government. I bring this up because some of the pitfalls of that particular book are also elements in play in Darkfall, but here they turn out solidly. The stakes of the war are equally deadly here -- terrible things happen, battles are lost, and people die. Some of it is even Nya's fault. But even when bad things are happening, Nya never checks out; and even when she's being used as a figurehead, she never loses her agency. She's the one who decides to play along with questionable leaders, even when things don't feel right, and then she has to deal with the consequences.

In my review of Blue Fire (the middle book in the series), I mentioned that I had a hard time tracking what happened at the climaxes in the first two books. That was actually not the case in this one -- there was a heck of a lot of action happening near the end, but I never lost track of what was going on with Nya's powers and the Duke's weapons.

Aside from improving on what I found to be the previous book's main weakness, the conclusion maintained all of its strengths: the worldbuilding is great, Nya's voice is strong and she's fun to read about, and the story is compelling. The only tiny quibble I had was that I don't think we got to know one of the characters who died very well beforehand, so it didn't have quite the impact it should have. That's an extremely minor complaint, though. The book is a solid five cupcakes, leaving the series as a whole at four and a half.

I gave it four stars because I would consider e-reading it. The series over all is clean and well written suitable for ages 10 and up. I enjoyed the strong female protagonist, the tightness of the prose and the effective movement of plot. I struggle with sequels but this read beautifully and ended well. THank you Janice Hardy.
