What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
They’re waiting for you.
Those four words should have been a warning. They should have filled Violet with dread. But she was so focused on Rafe’s disappearance, she forgot.
The resistance was supposed to be fighting for a better world. A group of freedom fighters formed during the Monarch War, pushing back against laws that would see everyone enslaved. For a while there, they gave hope.
But with power comes corruption. The Society has been quietly amassing the strength and backing to become a real threat, and not everyone wants to use that power for good.
In a world torn apart by the death of monarchs, new leaders rise. Violet dives headfirst into the viper’s nest with one singular goal: rescue the stolen prince who possesses half her heart.
With the unwavering support of Jordan at her side, Violet knows she can face whatever the resistance throws at them. Even if she was the intended target all along.
Keep your friends close.
Keep your enemies closer.
Never forget the betrayals of the past.
The end of an era is here.
Thoughts on Poison Throne
Answers! We FINALLY get some answers in this final installment, and boy… are they intense! It stretches back farther than Violet ever imagined and involves players both personal and opaque. the resistance is incredibly large, yet fractured, fissuring into dogmatic divisions that each hold their own ideas and ideals – ones that threaten to rock the very foundation Violet has gingerly placed her fragile trust in.
All of that, including the prerequisite blood and mayhem… I mean, her fighting name IS Violence… is backdropped by an epic romance that bleeds through the pages – and culminates in a fantastic way! I won’t lie, I was worried for her and worried for how that particular plot thread would be tied, but it was satisfying, if a bit too ‘realistic’ for the ultimate swoon moment.
We also get an idea of WHEN this tale takes place. Throughout the series, no years are mentioned though a few historical points are made. I wasn’t sure if this was a future based, dystopian adventure, or one founded on altered history. From the narrative delivered here, it pretty far into the future, with events in the past matching up with actual events, till democracy somehow falls in years beyond our own. That is the impression I gathered at least. So, it’s not altered history, but rather a futuristic romance with mild dystopian undertones.
All in all, this was a well written series that entertained and captivated. I would recommend it.
