Review: A Fire Endless by Rebecca Ross

A Fire Endless is a magical and action filled series ender. I could not stop reading. Look at me, I had done a good job and portioned out my reading and that plan went out the window as soon as I reached about 50%. I ended up reading the rest in two days. Keep reading this book review for my full thoughts.


East and West. Humans and Spirits. Breccans and Tamerlaines. The Isle of Cadence has always held itself and its residents in a tenuous balance. But now Bane, the spirit of the North Wind, has pushed everyone and everything in his path off-kilter in a bid to claim dominion over all.

In the West, Adaira struggles to adjust to the more brutal, bitter ways of life among the Breccans. Striving to find her place in the clan, she swiftly realizes that it just might be the last role she desires to hold. And while magic blooms effortlessly for the Breccans in the west, the spirits continue to suffer beneath Bane’s harsh power, felt in every gust of wind.

In the East, Jack is adrift without Adaira until he sings to the ember-weak fire spirits, acquiring a dangerous mission he never expected. One that is destined to lead him westward. Likewise, Torin and Sidra are consumed by a new mystery as sickness spreads first amongst the crops, and then to the people of the Tamerlaine clan. While Sidra desperately searches for a cure, Torin dares to strike a bargain with the spirits—a precarious folly anytime, but especially now as the days grow darker.

With the island falling further out of balance, humans and spirits alike will need to join together to face Bane, and Jack’s gift with the harp will be called upon once more. Yet no one can challenge the North Wind without paying a terrible price, and the sacrifice required this time may be more than Jack, Adaira, Torin, and Sidra can bear to pay.

Reading A Fire Endless was an emotional roller coaster. Not only did it keep me up at night because I kept saying, “one more chapter” until I basically was falling asleep with exhaustion, but also I cried. This series ender had me emotionally invested to the core. I have loved the world building of spirits and magic, which is only evolved and furthered in A Fire Endless. Talk about a world of magical deals and spirits which would probably kill me, but which I love reading about.

But what kept me reading was my emotional investment in the characters. With this island poised on war – seriously conflicted – A Fire Endless had me already shaking my head from the beginning. I kept thinking, “look if my faves don’t make it out alright…” Tears were shed and no spoilers will be given about exactly why. It’s one of those sequels which broke my heart and put it back together all at once.

At the same time, A Fire Endless is about the various definitions of justice and truth. With stakes on every level, Ross delivers a sequel that will make us wonder what it takes to have peace. We often say we are fighting for peace, but when we have all become honed weapons, how can we ever find peace? A Fire Endless is epic and packed with action from start to finish. What a stellar book! Find A Fire Endless on Goodreads, Amazon, Indiebound, & The Book Depository.
