A Vow So Bold and Deadly
A Vow So Bold and Deadly | Brigid Kemmerer
41 posts | 45 read | 32 to read
Brigid Kemmerer's bestselling Cursebreaker series continues as old enemies resurface and friends become foes. Face your fears, fight the battle. Emberfall is crumbling fast, torn between those who believe Rhen is the rightful prince and those who are eager to begin a new era under the true heir, Grey. Grey has agreed to wait two months before attacking Rhen, and in that time, Rhen has sought the assistance of a spy despite Harper's doubts. Fight the battle, save the kingdom. Meanwhile, Lia Mara struggles to rule Syhl Shallow with a gentler hand than her mother. But after decades of peace since magic was driven out of their lands, some of her subjects aren't happy that Lia Mara has an enchanted prince and magical scraver by her side. As Grey's deadline draws nearer, Lia Mara is forced to question whether or not she can remain allied to his cause. This compulsively readable saga continues as two kingdoms come closer to conflict--and an old enemy resurfaces who could destroy them all.

I really enjoyed this series. It has rekindled my love for fantasy and the characters were great-flawed but ultimately lovable and redeemed.

Probably my least favourite book in the trilogy, but a satisfying ending nonetheless.

I recently finished this wonderful series and I couldn‘t be happier with it! The characters were stunning and the plot was so exciting. And despite how big they are, all three books make for very quick reads.

Trilogy rating: ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

I have major attachment issues with book series and never want to finish them but I finally forced myself to pick up AVSBAD. The first book will always be my favorite of the series but this was definitely a close second. A very satisfying conclusion.

What I like here is there is a theme of fear and how fear controls the actions of people. The book explores how fear can ruin us and how we can conquer fear. As well as how we can forgive those who have acted in fear.
However, SPOILERS IN THIS PARAGRAPH SKIP AHEAD. Brigid Kemmerer included my least favorite trope, the trope that most people hate. She had to make one of the characters pregnant.

I must admit that I struggled with the pacing in the first half of the book. There were moments when I was enjoying it and other moments when it felt like everyone was just… talking. It wasn‘t incredibly exciting to me. I wanted a bit more action and the second half absolutely delivered on that!

It all seems par for the course, then Kemmerer starts mixing it up & that's when I really engaged. It's when the characters dig into themselves & each other for the truth that this series is at its best, b/c they are better than sitting around sulking at their mistakes & fears. They dive into (sometimes ill-advised) action, ask hard questions & it all leads to a really satisfying, if a bit obvious, conclusion. Really enjoyed this book & series.

Third in the Cursebreakers series by Brigid Kemmerer! I did it! I finished another series…unless she‘s writing another one. This book had a lot more violence in parts, but Gray, Wren & Harper wove their way into my heart as always. This would make a great movie series. 5 stars from me. #100YEARS100BOOKS #78 #BookSpinBingo #16 #BFC21 #5 #TALESandTAILSforADULTS #5 #SERIES2021 #JOYSofJUNE #1 #AUDIOJUNE

I was really looking forward to the final instalment in this series because I‘m a hard core fan of Grey. This book didn‘t quite do it for me. I was literally rolling my eyes on some parts and never quite got into the whole Lia Mara and Grey dynamics. I stan Harper and Grey. Lol. It‘s a 3.8 star for me for this one. #review #fantasy

Thus is book 3 in The Curse Breaker series. My least favorite but OK. The first part of the book dragged and the last bit felt rushed. I was not of fan of Lia Mara in this one. I wanted to tell her to put her big girl panties on. I liked the ending. It felt right but there are several unresolved issues. Wonder if there will be a book 4.

Normally in trilogies, when we get to the bit that's all politics and war, I get a bit bored and I tore through this. I think it helped that I had gotten to know the players but also these four people had such different approaches and yet in different ways were all trying to think of the bigger picture so watching them work through that was fascinating.

I didn't want this series to end, but like all good things, it had to. I do not do well when reading a trilogy or series as I tend to get bored. Book one was OMG, book two was GREAT and book three was OK but this is a common pattern of mine. I loved the writing, but parts seemed to drag. It didn't have as big of a punch as the other books. It's still a trilogy I recommend by an author I love.

Review of the trilogy is on the blog: https://sceptre.sktc.hamburg/2021/02/break-a-curse-or-two-or-three/

Third book, could have been merged with book 2. The outcome of the series was predictable.

Like nearly all YA series, this one will have its fandom for sure.

Was planning on making some good progress on this before work and having some me time before the work week. Instead I woke up at 4-something to my neighbor still shouting obscenities about video games 🙃Needless to say I am tired and displeased and will be knocking on a door (fully masked) if this happens again because I‘ve really tried to be understanding up to now and know it could be a form of stress relief. But now it‘s just inconsiderate.

What an amazing end to a great trilogy. I am sad to see Rhen, Harper, Grey, and Lia Mara go. This book had me on the edge of my seat wanting to know how it would all end. I loved how each character‘s chapter was told from their own point of view.

At least I got to the bookstore before the weather hit (as if I didn‘t already have an overflowing TBR). I‘m settling in for a cozy reading day.

Also! If London Fogs bring you joy and contentment, I love this candle from Greyhouse Coffee. My brother got me another for Christmas because I loved my old one so much.

This has to be my favorite out of the trilogy. I like how all four characters have point of views in the book compared to two characters. I love the magic and the relationships. The action was great. The ending felt like there were loose ends, so I‘m hoping a spin off or something happens.

And these are my ebook and audiobook potentials, along with the third Cursebreakers book, which I couldn‘t photograph in the other picture since I won‘t have a physical copy until it comes out at the end of January.

It was originally purple. But it seems to be now red. Not out until January, so i am incredibly lucky (& grateful) to be reading this RIGHT NOW! At 55% in my digital arc and it‘s progressing as I hoped (not as I feared). Trust this author, I am learning. I have been in a reading slump and this is exactly what I need. #fantasyseries #fairytaleretelling #acursesodarkandlonely #rhenandharper #grayandliamaria #romanceandwar
