(The Fourth Element #3)
Publication date: January 18th 2017
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult
Persepolae has fallen.
Karnopolis has burned.
As the dark forces of the Undead sweep across what remains of the empire, Nazafareen must obey the summons of a demon queen to save Darius’s father, Victor. Burdened with a power she doesn’t understand and can barely control, Nazafareen embarks on a perilous journey through the shadowlands to the House-Behind-the-Veil. But what awaits her there is worse than she ever imagined…
A thousand leagues away, Tijah leads a group of children on a desperate mission to rescue the prisoners at Gorgon-e Gaz, the stronghold where the oldest daēvas are kept. To get there, they must cross the Great Salt Plain, a parched ruin occupied by the armies of the night. A chance encounter adds a ghost from the past to their number. But will they arrive in time to avert a massacre?
And in the House-Behind-the-Veil, Balthazar and the Prophet Zarathustra discover that they have more in common than meets the eye. But is it enough to redeem the necromancer’s bloodstained soul and thwart his mistress’s plans?
As a final showdown looms with Queen Neblis, the truth of the daēvas’ origins is revealed and three worlds collide in this thrilling conclusion to the Fourth Element series.
I am going to say it straight I so so so heartbroken the series is over!
But hope came back to life after I read the bit at the end and there is a chance we get to be with some of my favorite characters again.
I say this at the beginning on my review cause when I was reading the last chapter and epilogue, I was pretty much in tears. I have loved this series from book 1 and I really have a hard time letting series go when they complete. (We all know I have not yet recovered from the ending of the Hashtag Series!!!)
So this is another heartbreaking moment where I have to say goodbye for now to my beloved Nazafareen and Darius and wait until we meet again in Kat’s other books.
So let’s talk about Queen of Chaos, just like its predecessors, it is bloody well amazingly out of this world. This time, we get a lot of different PoV from most of our main characters the good ones and even a future ex-baddie.
Yes, you heard me!
I felt like that way you were looking at the action from all angles and from all perspectives at the same time and I loved it! There were a few small twists here and there, nothing to make me fall off my bed but enough to make it a smashing finale and have a better insight into some things that were quite obscure from the beginning.
If you have read book 1 and 2 then you are going to love this. I got choked up a few times and I blame Kat’s great writing for that (Trust me when I say that, it is in no way a negative).
The series is amazing, this was a wonderful conclusion and I love that we may see our beloved characters again in the future in one form or another in other series or works. Now, if you have not read the series before, then I do recommend you get your hands on them stat cause they are really something else!
One thing I wanted to mention is that for the whole series the covers were beautiful, I do not know who designed them but frankly they did an amazing job and they are such a wonderful representation of each book. I don’t always rave about covers, but those really struck me as really superior and made me wish I had all 3 in print and not as ebooks (sigh!)
So going from here, I am guessing (could be wrong of course) that the next book might be Book 2 following The Deamoniac (If you have not read it, you should) and maybe even another series?
Time will tell and my friends you know by now that if it is written by Kat it is going to be so so so amazing, and I hope I will have the opportunity to review those books for all of us as well.
In the meantime, get reading!
