back in Bleak Hope where everything started, trying to find a semblance of inner piece Hope s former crew is scattered across the Empire Brigga Lin and Jilly are part of another pirate crew, Alash is secluded in an island, and none knows what happened to the rest Finally, Red has get rid of the Biomancers control and now enjoys his days as an employ of Lady Hempist Or at least he did, up until he discovers some new information about the Biomancers plans, which now involve their new allies, the infamous Vixen Those plans include the death of the old Emperor, as well as something that is labeled as the ultimate sacrifice And so, Red is assigned a new job He has to travel across the empire, find Hope, Brigga Lin, and the rest of the crew, assemble a team, and finally bring the Biomancers to an end, before it is too late for the rest of the Empire In the end, I see now that my gravest mistake was in thinking that I must carry the burden on my own But progress is never borne on the shoulders of one person Instead it happens when many people come together with a unity of purpose Unfortunately, I cannot imagine a situation so dire that it would unite the people of this fractured empire What a glorious and terrible day that would be Hope and Red was an as pleasant as it gets surprise A book dropped out of nowhere, without huge promotion and from a yet unknown in the genre author, that came to be declared by many including me as one of the greatest fantasy books of 2016 The sequel, Bane and Shadow, was a great read as well, but this time it didn t come as a surprise, and since it followed the exact same script of the first book, at some points even seemingly copying some situations, it didn t get as much critical acclaim as the debut Blood and Tempest, the final conclusion to this epic trilogy, is somewhere in between Although this is the final installment of the trilogy, Skovron kept expanding and exploring his world building, adding new elements that played a vital role to the finale This helped to address some problems but it also left other issues unresolved Issues that were raised even from the first book, and should have a conclusion, such as the prophecy about the invasion On the other hand, this leaves the possibility of new installments open, and I sure as hell would be down forHope and Red.The same applies to the characters and their development likable and authentic, they kept growing and changing, coming to conflict with their inner self and facing the consequences of their beliefs and actions Skovron s prose was once again excellent, proving that he is an experienced and talented author with a bright future ahead of him, be it for this genre or another The pace shifted throughout the book, and although some events felt a little bit rushed, the flow of the story wasn t disrupted Finally, the ending was epic, full of mesmerizing action sequences and with a satisfying conclusion All in all and as the heading said, Blood and Tempest is a great ending for an even greater trilogy, and I m looking forward tobooks by Jon Skovron The third and final book of the Empire of Storms provides Hope and Red with an ending While it may not be THE ending, this particular trilogy certainly does come to an epic conclusion.4.0 5.0 stars A great end to a great trilogy if not the epic that you were expecting.The entire Empire of Storms has been thrilling,

book of the Empire of Storms provides Hope and Red with an ending While it may not be THE ending, this particular trilogy certainly does come to an epic conclusion.4.0 5.0 stars A great end to a great trilogy if not the epic that you were expecting.The entire Empire of Storms has been thrilling, epic and tirelessly entertaining While Blood and Tempest is easily the shortest installment of the trilogy, it still manages to conclude a fantastic story with a thoughtful but epic conclusion that in no way seems dictated by length or lack of time SPOILERS IF YOU HAVEN T READ BOOKS I II OF THE EMPIRE OF STORMSI read Hope and Red maybe a month after its release in 2016 and was instantly in love Since then the story has grown in scope starting from the two title characters to encapsulate maybe a dozen or so shall we say minor characters that help lead Hope and Red to their conclusion Be aware this is THEIR story The empire, the isles, the supporting cast are all involved, all living their own story as well but for now, Hope and Red take center stage And while the empire, the world itself may accompany them on this particular journey, the epic conclusion of EoS resolves their story, but not necessarily that of the world itself This isn t by any means a deal breaker It isn t where I thought we were headed from HaR, but is entertaining all the same The plot of Blood and Tempest picks up where Bane and Shadow left off, with Hope having left the Sword of Sorrows and presumably violence behind her In her private quest for meaning she wanders the south of the empire, searching for answers in her own past Red, having escaped Biomancer control, continues to search for atonement following his period as the Shadow Demon, attempting to spite the very masters he once served He serves as a spy for the Empress, although he s not terribly good at it Lacks subtlety, that one After a few not so minor setbacks, Red is given the one task he s wanted all along recruit Hope and Brigga Lin to the Empress s cause.Brigga Lin has shrugged off Hope s sudden departure well enough She s off fucking a pirate captain, engaging in small time piracy Her pupil, Jilly, struggles to fit in with the pirates all of whom seem to be ragged, smelly dudes while trying to cope with the life she s been thrust into and the consequences of Hope s betrayal and departure The rest of their crew has split as well Nettles becoming the Black Rose of Paradise Circle, Filler and Sadie and manydead and gone, Missing Finn and Alash and others disappeared.Hope, meanwhile, discovers peculiar mysteries in the south not precisely the answers she was looking for Red discovers a not so subtle plot that could mean the end of the empire itself Together, with a motley cast and crew, their adventures and experiences will help change the shape of the world.While not the perfect ending I was looking for, Blood and Tempest provides an ending, at least one to the saga that began in Hope and Red While it may not be THE ENDING a door is left open here forin this world Jon Skovron certainly provides a conclusion to the story he set out to tell And it was a worthwhile conclusion to discover So long as you don t expect too much as not all my questions were answered If you were after a conclusion to Hope and Red s journey you will not be disappointed Hopefully I hope to seeof Skovron in the future Possibly a further glimpse into the Empire as well An incredibly underrated, well written political fantasy If you like your fantasy light on the romance, heavy on the characters and world building, and creative in its stance on race, colonialism, technology, and even gender roles, then pick this one up I, for one, can t wait to see what Skovron comes up with next. I don t write many reviews because for as much as I read, I m very word challenged, and I always end up saying great and awesome way too much which is pretty self explanatory since I put 4 or 5 stars

great and awesome way too much which is pretty self explanatory since I put 4 or 5 stars But I decided to make an effort here because I thinkpeople should know about this serie.The story is a classic revolution against the oppression But the best in these books are the characters, especially the women not that I didn t like the men Most of the characters had a rough start in life, whether it was because of poverty, bad parents or dead parents, or because of their gender.The Empire of Storms is a society where the upper class the lacies is mysoginistic and homophobic, and yet, we see women who becomes warriors, biomancers, pirates, or even spies we also see a few characters who are gay or bisexual, and then we have Brigga Lin.It s rare to see women like Brigga Lin in fantasy or maybe I don t read enough and haven t find them Brigga Lin is a biomancer, and because of her knowledge she was able to transform her body from a man s to a woman s Her first motivation for doing this was power, because women biomancer arepowerful than men but because of the mysoginistic view of society, women were thought too stupid to learn it , but then she realizes that it was who she was meant to be She held up the platter at arm s length and looked at herself Something in her mind clicked into place and she thought, Yes It took her a little by surprise She hadn t realized it until now but whenever she d looked at herself before, she d always thought, No, as if the reflection had seemed wrong somehow But this was right For the first time in her life, she felt whole I could talk and talk about these books, about Brigga Lin, Hope, Red, and all the others but I think it s better to read and see for yourself, all I can say is that the story is amazing, the characters are great I had to put these words somewhere , and like I said, I really wishpeople knew about these books Just in case, I d like to add that these books have a lot of violence missing limbs, spilling guts, mentions of rape, and quite a lot of sex You ve been warned And I ll finish by saying Bless the Circle ( Download ) ☩ Blood and Tempest ♪ The thrilling conclusion to Jon Skovron s adventure fantasy series, two

noticed in this book, was that travels by sea which should have taken the characters days , ended up taking only hours Also what happened with Red s glasses At some point people Hope mentioned his eyes but stopped mentioning his glasses, even though he needs them at daytime and no one can properly see his eye through them A few threads were kept loose as well view spoiler My biggest issue was that Red never got to see Old Yammy again She told him in book 1 it would be a while until they see each other again, but didn t she say to Wentu she came to the Southern Isles to die No I m not accepting that She s supposed to see her little Rixie at least oncehide spoiler I do hope forbooks in this world I quite liked it and all the people in it Red will always be my best wag, but Jilly,
