In a pursuit that has spanned continents, Iolanthe, Titus, and their friends have always managed to remain one step ahead of the forces of Atlantis. But now the Bane, the monstrous tyrant who bestrides the entire mage world, has issued his ultimatum: Titus must hand over Iolanthe, or watch as his entire realm is destroyed in a deadly rampage. Running out of time and options, Iolanthe and Titus must act decisively to deliver a final blow to the Bane, ending his reign of terror for good.
However, getting to the Bane means accomplishing the impossible—finding a way to infiltrate his crypt in the deepest recesses of the most ferociously guarded fortress in Atlantis. And everything is only made more difficult when new prophecies come to light, foretelling a doomed effort....
Iolanthe and Titus will put their love and their lives on the line. But will it be enough?
With The Immortal Heights, Sherry Thomas brings the acclaimed Elemental Trilogy to its breathtaking conclusion.
What started like a really interesting story in The Burning Sky, exploded in The Perilous Sea, where I fell in love with everything. It's just the story progressed in a way I didn't expect it too and it surprised me so much. But, it's sad that The Immortal Heights didn't continue in that direction.
Don't get me wrong here, this is not by all means a bad book. Quite opposite, as was it written a stand along I would for sure be writing a praise for it. However, the trick with series of any kind is that after the latest one you expect the next one to be more. This one wasn't that. It continued in a good manner, the story progressed nicely and the characters developed even more. It all went in a right direction towards nowhere. There wasn't that blow at the end that would leave me breathless, something that would make me hold this book and weep that there is no more. Something that would make me remember it till the end of days. Even the romance between the two became dull, there weren't those sparks from the previous books.
I might be asking for to much, but with such a world building and great characters it's what it needs. Still it will be remembered as a great story, one you should most definitely read.
Rating: 3.5 stars.
Until the next time,
