Destiny Risen by Hilary Thompson

My edition: Kindle Unlimited
Series: Strabright #3 Final Book
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Rating: 3.5 stars


The world cries for Peace, but she can’t stop fighting now.

One hundred years before, the Great Sickness reduced the world to three scattered cities. Now Asphodel has risen, Tartarus no longer burns, but Elysium still waits at the edge of the earth.

Trea’s destiny is still uncertain- but with her own personal prophet to help, the choice will finally be hers to make.

Three sisters.
Four fallen stars.
Seven minutes to determine the future of our world.


I kind of fought with this one. Before half way I couldn’t figure out why this one was taking me so long to get through. The after I got half way through I figured it out. It was Lexan. Even though I like Lexan as a character I just found his POV a little slow. I loved Astrea’s so much better than Lexan’s.

I still loved the story but I didn’t like it as much as the other two. I think it has to do with Elisyum. I didn’t like the city and the people there weren’t the best. Too many trials and not enough trust. Just having to read about the city wasn’t piquing my interest.

Even after halfway I still fought because I went into a book slump and it was just hard to finish this. Again loved the story but there were just parts that made this tough to get through. The end was worth it though.
