Immortal Reign by Morgan Rhodes - ADVISABLE

Rhodes, Morgan Immortal Reign (Falling Kingdoms, #6), 391 pages. Razorbill (Penguin), 2018. $19. 

Language: PG-13 (27 swears); Mature Content: PG; Violence: PG-13.  

The royalty of the three kingdoms of Mytica have gathered together to try and regain control of their kingdom against the Kindred.  The Kindred’s power of earth, water, fire and air have each found a host and are trying to combine their powers so they can rule the earth, but the hosts in which they inhabit are trying to resist the Kindred’s power and they try to work together to destroy the Kindreds access to their world. 

I adore this series.  An attempt to explain the basic story line doesn’t do this book any justice.  The world of Mytica and the magical forces at play are very well explained.  This is the final book in this series (there is the companion series Spirits and Thieves) and it was as satisfying as I had hoped.  I wish this series could keep on going because I love the characters and the chemistry they have with each other.  The violence is gruesome and torturous-it’s borderline rated R, which is the only thing that holds me back from an essential recommendation.
