My Goodreads Review:

“What an excellent conclusion to a truly superb YA fantasy series.

I started An Ember in the Ashes the day it came out, and have been reading on in this series over the course of 5+ years now. It has been such a joy, and it is certainly bittersweet to say goodbye. I truly hope (and expect) Sabaa Tahir will return to this world, because it was so expertly crafted.

As for A Sky Beyond the Storm specifically, I loved it. I was worried that I might struggle to get into the story, but I was hooked from the beginning. Other than some lagging in the beginning-middle of the book, which was mainly brought about by me losing track of the many moving parts, I was enthralled the whole time. The Blood Shrike, was as captivating a character as ever. The last third of this book was perfectly heart-pounding. There were certainly some devastating moments that I had tried my best to prepare for but were still painful.

Ultimately, I think this was an exceptional conclusion. Sabaa Tahir is a top-tier writer, and this series, which is hard to believe it was her first, is next level.
