An explosive ending to this epic series!

It’s been quite a journey to see the progression of how Finley’s grown not only emotionally and physically, but in her magical skills and in her deep love with Carrick. Over the past five books Finley has journeyed to new lands, met new creatures, already battled to save her life and those were nothing compared to what she has to face as Finley’s destiny is finally coming to a close. The prophecy is drawing nearer with a battle to end all battles. Will there be enough time to gather forces to help their cause before doomsday arrives?

Finley and Carrick are soulmates and while we know they have found each other time and time again for hundreds of years, will they continue to do so? Will this time be different?

We get a lot of closure to everything that has happened leading up to this final book, while also leaving a couple doors open making me wonder if interconnected books will be in the future. Finley and the whole gang adventure into new realms and we meet a few new people before it leads up the epic battle. There are more unique twists than I was expecting which made for very exciting reading.

There are so many interlocking pieces that have to be pieced together before the end and Sawyer made the entire puzzle fit masterfully.


It’s time to meet my destiny.

Kymaris has everything she needs to bring down the veil between Earth and the Underworld. If she’s successful in completing the ritual, Earth will be darkened by evil. Demons will swarm our lands and the human race will be decimated.

It’s up to me to stop her.

My fate is to thwart the prophecy, but I’m not sure what to do. While I may have some gifts, I am still merely a human facing the queen of the Dark Fae who holds unimaginable power.

But I have something she doesn’t. Something she could never comprehend.

I have love.

Deep, abiding love which gives me the strength and courage to face down evil. Family, friends, and unexpected allies, who will stand shoulder to shoulder with me against this enemy. Should I fail, they are prepared to go down with me, but only after we have given our all.

My sacrifice may destroy everything I am. Fate may require my demise. But if that happens, I will leave this realm without regret, knowing that I have loved and been loved in return.

The Rise of Fortune and Fury is book five of the Chronicles of the Stone Veil series and is best enjoyed if read in series order.

The Revelation of Light and Dark (Chronicles of the Stone Veil, #1)A Discovery of Secrets and Fate (Chronicles of the Stone Veil, #2)The Evolution of Fae and Gods (Chronicles of the Stone Veil, #3)A Battle of Blood and Stone (Chronicles of the Stone Veil, #4)
