No matter how I had tried to avoid it, there was no escaping what we had: The kind of love you went to war for.

And that’s exactly what I intended to do.

Obsidian Throne is the fourth and final book in the Lochlann Feuds Series. Don’t miss this stunning conclusion to Rowan’s story!

Review

I honestly don’t know how to review this book. I don’t have the words to adequately describe how much I adore this series and this perfect finale.

This series has absolutely everything you could want from an upper YA fantasy. The characters are so well developed and lovable. The world building is wonderful. The plot is unique and intriguing while still delivering those favorite tropes and scenarios found in this genre.

I don’t want to say too much and spoil it, but the way these authors are able to show so much chemistry between characters while still keeping the book relatively clean is amazing. It was incredible. Even the friendships and side characters are well done.

The only thing I wished there was more of in this final book was her family. They are an important part of her life, and I was kind of surprised they weren’t involved more in this part of the story. I understand why, but it was a noticeable absence. I thought there’d at least be an appearance by a certain cousin. Again, there’s a lot going on in this story, so I get it. It just felt like a shift compared to the others; the focus was very much on the two main characters in this book instead of them with their friends and family. Not that it was a bad thing at all!

The ending also felt a bit rushed. Almost like it cut off too soon. Without spoiling anything, it was a big build up with the epic ending it deserved. All of that was perfect. It was the aftermath that felt tied up a little too quickly (I think this is where I really thought there’d be more mention of her family). Maybe that’s just me being selfish, wanting more.

This finale did not disappoint. It was beyond satisfactory, and I cannot recommend this series enough. It’s easily one of my top favorites now. I already want to re-read it. I could live in the Lochlann world forever!
