    It's always amazing to reach the end of a series! Thanks to everyone for reading, and I hope you have as much as I did. It's always amazing to reach the end of a series! Thanks to everyone for reading, and I hope you have as much as I did.

    I haven't read this book yet, but neither has that one star reviewer, so this marks a balancing placeholder. I haven't read a book by Wexler yet that I'd mark below 4 stars, and I don't anticipate this to be exception.

    Thank you to Desirae Friesen from Tor for the review copy in exchange for an honest review. This does not change my opinion in anyway. Siege of Rage and Ruin heads towards the logic conclusion to the trilogy. It was a good and solid conclusion, and yet something was still missing to be more.  After having survived the ship Soliton, having control over it and having created a new home for those with powers and outcasts, Isoka returns home to grab her sister and leave her home city behind forever. H Thank you to Desirae Friesen from Tor for the review copy in exchange for an honest review. This does not change my opinion in anyway. Siege of Rage and Ruin heads towards the logic conclusion to the trilogy. It was a good and solid conclusion, and yet something was still missing to be more.  After having survived the ship Soliton, having control over it and having created a new home for those with powers and outcasts, Isoka returns home to grab her sister and leave her home city behind forever. However her younger sister Tori has created her own life and is full into a rebellion against the empire. Or rather, that one person that send Isoka away.  You can imagine the clash that sisters make one they find each other.  And it was realistic. This is where it all lead back to for Isoka, even if that isn't what she really wanted for herself or Tori. A rebellion can't easily win from an empire when you keep losing people and that was shown. They were at down odds and only because they had people with certain powers were they able to get where they did at the end of it. I have no complaints in that area.  However if I look at the trilogy as a whole it felt as if there was a certain epicness missing from this specific installment. In the first book there was Soliton and the world on board. In the second book there was the city on the island and finding out more about their powers. This book is a logical end but doesn't quite have the same feel as the other two books had because there has been such a build up of the different and magic, and that isn't in this book. I also expected Soliton to have a bigger role to play than it did in this book.  I also have another bone to pick with Tori for the ending of this story but that is a spoiler so I'll just talk around it. But for someone so dead set on this rebellion, she easily turns her back on it.  As a whole The Wells of Sorcery is an interesting young adult trilogy

Trotzdem hatte ich während des Lesens stets ein flaues Gefühl im Magen - würde das Ende gut ausgehen? Werde ich damit umgehen können? Ohne zu viel zu verraten - Wexler hat ein gelungenes Ende geschrieben. Damit kann ich mich auf jeden Fall abfinden und mich von den lieb gewonnen Figuren verabschieden. Natürlich hätte ich auch nichts gegen ein Wiedersehen einzuwenden, aber besser ein gute geschriebenes Ende als eine Serie, die versumpft. Die Handlung selbst ist wiederum packend und spannend, Wexler bringt neue Ideen in den dritten Band, was diesen von den anderen beiden ein wenig abhebt. Wie gewohnt wechseln sich Kampfszenen und ruhige Szenen ab, sodass die Geschichte auf mehreren Ebenen stets vorangetrieben wird. Auch die Charaktere entwickeln sich weiter und man merkt, dass sie alle im Vergleich zu Band eins gewachsen sind. Nun winke ich also dem Schiff hinterher, das meine Freunde ins Ungewisse trägt. Nein, vergessen werde ich sie keinesfalls und ich werde mich stets an die gemeinsame Zeit erinnern. Die Wells Of Sorcery-Bücher haben mich wieder ins Genre des YA zurückgeholt - nur schon deswegen haben diese Titel einen speziellen Platz in meinem Herzen verdient.

    That wraps up another series from my favorite author. Siege of Rage and Ruin is an adrenaline rush from start to finish. Isoka and the crew of the Soliton have finally arrived in Kahnzoka. Tori and the revolution are knee deep in, well revolution. This final book has it all from great action, to great characters, to an ending I am very satisfied with. Could it have given me a little more of course but I think for what this series has always been about from the beginning, it was just right.

Tori and the revolution are knee deep in, well revolution. This final book has it all from great action, to great characters, to an ending I am very satisfied with. Could it have given me a little more of course but I think for what this series has always been about from the beginning, it was just right. Isoka and Tori are both similar and not so similar in every way. They both fight for each other, while also fighting for everyone else. Neither thinks of themselves before jumping into danger. Where the differ is how they act. Isoka has always been more action speaks first and plan later. Tori the opposite plan before action. That dynamic shines in this one when the sisters are finally reunited after so long. I have always loved the sibling bond between these two and it is so much stronger in this final book. I also loved getting to see them at odds with each other. Another part of this book that shines is the side characters. Meroe, Jack, Zarun, Jakisba, Hasaka, Giniva, and so many more, were all utilized extremely well. What's also great is the amount of diverse characters spread throughout. Django Wexler always delivers a diverse cast of characters. Like I said at the beginning of this review, this book is so fast paced. I flew thorugh this book in about a day and a half. Which typing that out only saddens me because I am done reading about this world and characters. This final book wraps up everything quite nicely. I am very satisfied with the end. I am not going to go to much into what happens because I have spoiled a little bit already but that's going to happen this is the third book in a series. If there was one thing I could nitpick it would be that I wish we got to explore more of a certain part of the magic system. Again I cannot touch on this subject really at all because it is a large part of the story. But I loved this magic system from the beginning. It is very unique and wonderful. I do wish that one aspect was explored or even fleshed out a teeny bit more. All in all, Django Wexler continues to reign supreme in my author catalogue and I look forward to any and all books he decides to publish. Especially this year, I am getting 3 works!!! WOOHOO!!

    I'm finding it a bit difficult to talk about this book, my thoughts are a bit scattered and it's not exactly a great impression.

Now why is that relevant to my collection of thoughts? For the sole reason that the book felt too neat because he was seemingly trying to make it seem like everything is going to be okay. Everything worked in our protagonists favours, they didn't suffer at all in comparison to the first couple of books and everything was resolved way too easily for my taste. A message of hope could have worked for a book like this one, but not exactly like this. I say this because the first couple of books painted this world in a brutal way, people die, they will do things they don't want to do and not everything works out perfectly. Yes, there is the occasional plot armor here and there, but I'd like to find a series without one, so feel free to recommend it. BUT even then, the stakes felt high and there were times when I thought someone might kick the bucket because of the danger. There is none of that here, not even for a single second. I doubt anybody can deny that the author knows how to make fight scenes appealing, he knows how to make a magic system that is incredibly fun to see and this book shows that in big ways. I find that saddening, because the danger of the world made it all the more exciting (I don't think anyone would expect a different resolution to this book other than the implied one once we meet a certain person). I may be a bit unfair here, because even when reading City of Stone and Silence, I found Tori's POV to be very boring in comparison to Isoka's. Therefore, the problem here might be with me personally as I find his exploration of the world to be a much better filler of my time than the confinement of the cities. Regardless of which reason is the more dominant one here, I will say that I didn't enjoy this one much. The characters felt exactly the same, Meroe was reduced to the dotting wife position which I think is totally unfair (She previously had something going for her and she felt like she had a role) and he was trying too hard with Jack here who only came out as lame more so than anything else. The romance was also cringeworthy here, I may have started this series tolerating it because there were so many other things to see in it, but starting from book 2 and definitely here, it became a con for me from all sides. It was an okay book in the end, do I think it could have been better? yes, I liked the first two books a lot so you can imagine my absurd expectations coming into this one which they weren't ultimately delivered.

    Finishing a series is always so nerve-wracking for me. Will I be satisfied with the ending? Will all the characters I love make it out in one piece? I am mostly happy with the way everything is at the end of this though I did feel like the last part was a bit rushed. I also felt that some favorites got pushed aside and were only in the story to make a quick save during a battle and then they disappeared into the background again.

I also felt that some favorites got pushed aside and were only in the story to make a quick save during a battle and then they disappeared into the background again. (Okay, I'm speaking of Zarun, I just love him so much and he just felt different and underused in this book.) As this is the last book in the series there's not much I feel I can really talk about without giving away too much. I will say there is an interesting discussion on Isoka's morals. In the first book, she's the ruthless boss of the sixteenth ward. She kills and injures when citizens can't pay the money she's owed. In this book, we get to see how much her journey has changed her and the types of decisions she's willing to make. I enjoyed seeing Isoka and Tori butt heads, especially once Isoka realized Tori was not the delicate flower she always believed her to be. I liked that we finally got to see the Royal Ward in this final installment. I was hoping we would get to see the Emporer's palace and I was not disappointed. The descriptions of it were so lush. I think describing a setting is one of Wexler's strong suits. He has created such a fascinating world, I'm a little sad the series is over and I'll have to say goodbye but I think I'll be picking up one of his other books soon.

    So unfortunately, this was my least favorite of the trilogy. I adore Django Wexler's writing, so it pains me to be anything less than thrilled with one of his works. It simply felt too rushed and had a bit too neat of an ending. I know endings can be difficult, and it's not so much that I'm opposed to how it ends, as I am with what happens in between and how we got to the ending.

I know endings can be difficult, and it's not so much that I'm opposed to how it ends, as I am with what happens in between and how we got to the ending. Some parts of the story work - like, once again, highlighting the contrast between Tori and Isoka and really showcasing how much they've both changed from how they used to perceive each other; their own personal growth over time and how they need to relearn each other. Other parts either fell flat or didn't feel fleshed out enough. I'm also not a fan of how basically all the supporting characters were pushed to the side. Another minor thing (that actually ended up bothering me quite a bit, but it's probably minor in the eyes of others): This book could have definitely used another round of editing. There's a number of continuity errors, the most glaring one being that Tori now was raised in the Third Ward, when in the first two books she was said to have been raised in the Second Ward. This in particular would take me out of the story every time it was mentioned. There are also spelling mistakes and other continuity errors that all should have been ironed out.

    This finale felt like one large epic showdown. All the players were in place and it was time for the last conflicts and battles to be wrapped up. The story moved at a brisk pace, yet there were still plenty of moments for the characters to process and adapt to their situations. Isoka was all but untouchable and while I would have liked to see her in more dangerous situations, i still rooted for her to survive.

Her companions were quite entertaining, especially Jack, and there was still a sense of tension when it came to rescuing her sister. Tori herself had an interesting story where she met and clashed with new characters, and grappled with her incredible powers. The whole series takes place in a truly unique world with amazing powers and I would have loved to explore it more. The action scenes were clearly described and exciting, and I felt the words became a movie I could watch in my head. A definite recommend for fantasy fans looking for an escapist adventure on a ghost ship!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This was a great end to the series and it would have gotten a 5 star if only the ending wasn't so rushed... It was a bit jarring going from a pretty action packed fight, to people calmly boarding the Solition. I would have loved to see a bit more of what happened after Naga's arrest and what that looked like from the perspective of Isoka for example. I would also have loved to see the reaction of the people boarding the Solition when they get to the Harbour. ALSO the reunion of Jack and Thora.

I loved Jack a lot, there were few times I didn't chuckle when reading her dialogue. I'm probably a bit greedy for asking for all of this so I'm gonna stop now... Besides that I loved this book (and series as a whole)! The action made my adrenaline pump and the world building felt unique and interesting. I honestly love everything surrounding the Solition sooo much, the crabs, the Harbour, the angels (that fight was sick), the way it runs and the way (I imagine) it looks. This is definitely a series I will go back to visit many times! :D

    Loved it I really did love it. I only dropped a star due to editing. Maybe it was too long between books but there’s a couple of inconsistencies between this book and the other two. The biggest glaring inconsistency is the fact that she was living in the second word for the first two books and suddenly she lives in the third Ward. Every time I read about her being in third Ward I just got irritated. lol There’s a couple other minor editing errors also. It makes me wonder if he got a new editor. B Loved it I really did love it.

    I was so excited to get my hands on the final book of this series, and it definitely delivered! First of all, I thought the plot was tight and well-paced. It resolved all the threads that had been brought up in the first books, and the resolution to both Isoka and Tori's threads was superb. The book teased out some really great themes about family, expectations, morality, responsibility, and sacrifice in an authentic and well-crafted way. I'll miss reading about this world and these characters, I was so excited to get my hands on the final book of this series, and it definitely delivered!

    I love it when the final book in a trilogy is just as good (if not better) than it's previous installments, I always worry I'm going to be let down. I wasn't this time, I think Siege of Rage and Ruin ties up Isoka's story wonderfully and totally within character. I was upset that we didn't get that much Meroe though, and wished she'd been in it more, same goes for Zarunn. I really loved this series and wish it wasn't over.

    Nice conclusion to the series, but I wish they would have explored Isoka's eddica powers more. There was almost no character development. There was Isoka yet again realizing that she was being a bit of a pratt after Meroe explaining it all to her. Sigh. Not a bad series overall, but it felt a little too rushed to conclude the story, with not a lot of world and character delving.

    The final chapter to the Wells of Sorcery trilogy and in my opinion the weakest of the 3. I really enjoyed Isoka's time aboard the Solitan as well her discovering what the ship and the 'Angels' were. Book 3 has too many deux es machina moments for my liking.. Overall however it was a great YA trilogy. The final chapter to the Wells of Sorcery trilogy and in my opinion the weakest of the 3.

    My only objection was that it ended the series. I would have loved to explore this world more. But it was great to Tori and Isoka back together and sharing the experiences they had each had in the previous books in the series.

    A good finish to the series. I personally do hope that further adventures are written as the fights and life of the people have been written so vividly and beautifully that I could almost visualise the book happening in front of me. Thoroughly Enjoyed this one.

    A great finish to a great series. Both sisters finally get to see each other again and try to come to terms with how they have changed in each other’s absence. Plus the magic is still really cool. Side note did anyone else have the typo Nrmy for Army.
