Evans’s riveting Brimstone Angels series, featuring her signature character, Farideh, as she’s caught up in an epic battle of good versus evil, rife with deception and intrigue, where the question is as much who is evil, as how they can be defeated. In the long-awaited finale of her riveting Brimstone Angels series, Erin M. Evans thrusts her signature character Farideh into an epic battle of good versus evil, rife with deception and intrigue, where the question is as much who is evil, as how they can be defeated. The stakes have never been higher, and the fallout will shake the Hells, and through them, the Forgotten Realms. Before Farideh took a devil’s pact, before she was Chosen by the god-king of the Hells, before any of this started, there was Bryseis Kakistos, the original Brimstone Angel, first of Farideh’s line. Now, at the end, there is also Bryseis Kakistos—but this time, instead of helping the king of the Hells achieve godhood, she’s going to kill him. All she needs is a little help from Farideh—which she should, by all accounts, be happy to give. After all, who could object to killing the king of the Hells? Except, it turns out, Farideh. Because as always, things are far more complicated than they seem.

    Still reading this, but gotta say that Erin Evans deserves to be AT LEAST as popular as RA Salvatore and is a much better writer. (IMO; YMMV Of course.) Farideh is an intriguing character, who I enjoyed reading about through all these novels. (In contrast, the Drizzt saga lost me fairly early on.) Here's hoping we get more Farideh stuff down the line, though I'd happily give anything from this author a chance as well.

    9/10 In the last book of the Brimstone Angels saga Evans manages to pull a really special finale, taking us into a very different story than she has done before, and also closing very nicely both the characters and the events of the Sundering.

Long ago the people of Unther were lost from this world by the Blue Fire, but now the King of Dust has once again returned and along with him he brought his demon-army, bringing war and destruction to the land of the Vayemniri and all that defies him. After a long time of peace in this new world the cities of the dragonborn are in great peril and Mehen and Farideh will have to find a way to stop this mad god-king before everything is lost. In the meantime though, they will have to face also their own problems as Farideh will have to find a way to save her sister from the hand of the Brimstone Angel; while Havilar, trapped as she is, will discover Bryseis’s past and, that, will put her in an even bigger danger which might cost her something more than her own life. On the other side, the Sundering is coming to its end and the battle of the gods will become only bigger, as Asmodeus and Azuth fight for their survival; but in the end it might come to something that neither of them expected and will put the world in a very special place. Ever since I started reading Evans’s Brimstone Angels, and later her solo work The God Catcher, I remember falling in love with her style and her great adventures, as she brought for me a “fresh air” in the Forgotten Realms that, I think, was needed. And I have to say that with every single one of her books, with the exception of The Adversary which wasn’t entirely her fault so I’m leaving it aside, were really an enjoyment to read as she’s managed to make some of the most entertaining adventures in all the Forgotten Realms; as also making you love the characters, even through their faults. So, now after six books (plus her solo work) the end of this series, and possibly the end of the Forgotten Realms in general, is something really special for me and in this book, I must say, Evans has put all her great talent at making her biggest and toughest, if not her best, work to date bringing us into a highly entertaining adventure, and in an epic finale that leaves you wanting for more. Of course, the book has a lot of stuff in it, as it also happened with Fire in the Blood too, but Evans manages to pull everything really nicely and closing the series in a high note. Overall, this has been a great adventure from start to end of this series and I would consider it my most favorite if I didn’t like so much the first two books that, in the end, are those that made all the rest of her books happen. Definitely an author that I would certainly miss if this is, indeed, the end of the Forgotten Realms.

    Still a great series, it just felt like there was too much time spent making no progress. The protagonists know what needs to be done practically from minute 1, but there's so much puttering around and talking that it takes until roughly 3/4 of the way through the book before they actually take action to get what they need. I got sick of the "Lorcan could solve this in an instant by not being an asshole" dynamic several books ago and while there are moments that imply he literally can't NOT be a Still a great series, it just felt like there was too much time spent making no progress.

I got sick of the "Lorcan could solve this in an instant by not being an asshole" dynamic several books ago and while there are moments that imply he literally can't NOT be an asshole, and that's sort of a plot point, it didn't make the story move any faster. The big bright point for me was Dumuzi's subplot, oddly; it was all uncharted territory, with a character who has spent most of his life being told he's useless, only now he knows that this new god of his is literally the old chance his people have to survive... and these people are ideologically opposed to religion to the point of ostracism. It was fun to read, involved a few surprises, and concluded in a satisfying way through creative actions on the protagonist's part. I would read a whole book about this kid. It's weird because Dumuzi's plot reminds me of why I liked this series in the first place, and the juxtaposition with the Farideh/Havilar plot just makes the latter seem worse by contrast. I feel like I could write an essay on what the former does right, compared to how the latter does the same thing wrong. But it's still a good conclusion. If you've read the series thus far you may as well finish it.

His death would lead to complications reeking havoc in this world, and other planes of existence. There might be another way which would mean Farideh is gambling her life instead. The Brimstone Angel series saved the Forgotten Realms world. The books are fresh, exciting and entertaining. They are well written, enthralling page turners. I did not want to put this book down, it's a sequel that keeps you engrossed. Sadly, this is the last in the series. :-( Evans weaved together an ending with many surprises that managed to join up all the dots. I see another story in the ashes. So please let there be another book. The action scenes are rewarding, and Evan's also has a talent for writing introspective moments. The series has been a study in diversity and the psychology of good and evil. Don't worry; you fall in love with the characters, warts and all. It is later that you realise how informed the book leaves you on social matters. Arguably the finale was too quick. However, the book is a satisfying long read. This series drew me back to the Forgotten Realms fantasy world. It's a good place to begin your journey into that world and is highly recommended.

Este libro en particular continua con el mism estilo de narrativa que los anteriores, pero agrega algunos "mini capitulos" que sirven para conocer la historia de algunos personajes que aparecen a lo largo del libro. Lo mejor de esto es que te va guiando un poco en el porque dichos personajes son como son y que es lo que los motiva a tomar las desiciones que toman. Considerando que al final termina de cerrar todo, me parecio un muy buen uso de un recurso literario que a veces se pasa por alto. Otra cosa que me gusto del libro, y de la saga tambien, es el hecho de que hacen uso de todos los recursos que aparecen en los manuales de rol, desde deidades, civilizaciones, todo tipo de criaturas, y planos de existencia. Y la autora logra incorporar todo esto de una manera super ordenadado, lo que hace sentir al lector como que ya conoce el mundo, pero lo deja a la espera de que es lo proximo que puede ocurrir. Siento que este libro, a pesar de no ser para nada largo, fue en el que mas tiempo transcurrio en la historia. No se si fueron todos los eventos importantes o como se fueron atando cabos sueltos, pero siento que hasta algun punto fueron dos libros distintos. Se que es una percepcion un poco rara, pero no creo que sea algo malo teniendo en cuanto lo mucho que lo disfrute. El viaje en el que me llevaron esta saga libros fue excelente. Siento que fue un viaje literario que tenia que hacer, y ahora que llego al final miro hacia atras y veo lo mucho que los disfrute y me lleno de felicidad. Definitivamente son libros cuyos personajes van a quedar grabados por siempre en mi memoria. Para cualquiera que quiera leer una saga de fantasia con elementos nuevos y una trama dinamica, este es el libro. https://www.facebook.com/Calabozosyro... http://calabozosyrobots.blogspot.com....

    Things for Farideh seem to just get more and more tangled with every attempt to unravel the situations in which she's found herself. The spirits of Brimstone Angels are back and they have an agenda all their own. Asmodeus is still working toward achieving the greatness he feels he so rightly deserves.

The spirits of Brimstone Angels are back and they have an agenda all their own. Asmodeus is still working toward achieving the greatness he feels he so rightly deserves. And is Lorcan up to something that is in service to someone else...or does he have a path of his own to follow. What's clear for everyone is that something needs to happen to put all of this business to an end. But in order to do that, Farideh may have to put herself, her friends, and her family in danger. And if this doesn't work...well, let's just say everyone really, really hopes it does. Things have been building toward this finale for a while now. Every time Farideh felt she was getting a step closer to getting back to a normal life--or what passes for normal for her--it's as though she's instead taken a step back. And although she refuses to be a pawn for someone else, too often it seems like she has to give in if she wants to win. This time around, it appears there will be no exception. I was a little disappointed with the ending. After such a long buildup, it felt a bit anticlimactic to me--which is why this is pulling a three-star rating. It's still an enjoyable read, and fans of the series and character will enjoy getting some closure, even if it's a more subdued closure than one might expect. [Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.]

It was, as a whole, enough to bring multiple friends into, or back into, the Forgotten Realms at the tail end of it as they decided to stop the novels, possibly for good. It brought together more threads than I honestly expected, answered more questions than I honestly expected and while I can't say I'm 100% thrilled with where certain characters are left, I'm glad that Erins got one last book to wrap everything up. Seriously, just read it. You definitely won't regret it, unless you are a REALLY big fan of ONE character.

    This is the final Brimstone Angels novel, which is bittersweet, since I have really enjoyed this series of books, and it carries us well and truly into the new edition of Dungeons & Dragons, and is actually rather significant to the Forgotten Realms as a whole, which I hadn't fully expected.

I very much liked seeing the characters get some closure at the end, though I would have rather have had more books to look forward to, as well, since I enjoy their stories a great deal. If you enjoyed previous Brimstone Angels books, you will also enjoy this one, and the series, itself, is well worth a read.

Dahl was better for her, as she said, but I like the “devilish” characters. Either way, I am glad Lorcan survived. I was kind of worried about what was going to happen, since he was in a precarious position. It ends with him starting a new path in life (that’s literally the last scene), and I am curious to see what happens, but I realize this is the end of the series. The characters I cared about survived, so I was happy about that. The ending felt a bit rushed, as often to seems to be the case in fantasy novels (fantasy is my love, so don’t get me wrong, I breathe the genre as much I breathe yaoi manga, but the endings are often rushed). There is all this build-up to the ultimate confrontation, and then that confrontation is a bit hurried. But it was still a good ending. It blew things up without blowing them up, if that makes any sense. I am glad things turned out all right. I actually kind of enjoyed the scene where Havi and Fari were in the Fugue Plane. That was interesting. I love things involving the gods, and I always feel better when there is an afterlife, though depending on who you are, that can be good or bad, in the Realms. I don't have siblings, but I liked the theme of sister-bond. Alyona and Bisera’s story was tragic, but selfless in the end. Fari kind of annoyed me in this book, in a way she hadn't before. As Mehen thought at one point, she was moving too slowly. Then again, she was dealing with a bunch of stuff at once that I can't even imagine, so I should cut her some slack. She just seemed very...within herself? I guess? I still like her, but she did bother me more than usual. But that shows the power of Evans' writing. Her characters are flawed, making them believable. I would like to see more about the development between Enlil and the dragonborn. I'm glad for Kallan and Mehen (I would have liked an ending scene with them, but at least we know Mehen has a companion in him), and Duzumi really grew on me in this book. It was touching at the end to see Fari, after everything she'd been through, still nervous about Dahl's family. All in all, I enjoyed this book, as I have enjoyed all the Brimstone books. It was epic, with diverse characters and lots of conflict.

    The six-part story of Farideh and Havilar comes to an end. It's always difficult for me to read the last book in a series that I've been reading for years, waiting excitedly for each new book.

It's always difficult for me to read the last book in a series that I've been reading for years, waiting excitedly for each new book. And of course Erin M. Evans's stellar writing gets me emotionally attached to the characters. Despite having to deal with a large number of main characters, this book manages to give time to all of them, allowing readers to understand their emotional viewpoints (something that many other Forgotten Realms books fail to do). The author gives satisfying closures to most of the characters who appeared in the Brimstone Angels series. As mentioned above, although there are many action scenes and realms-shattering events, the strength of this series comes from its focus on individual characters. They are not dull heroes who must naturally succeed as the end of the story approaches; they are (despite the fantasy setting and species) realistic, flawed characters who make tough decisions which don't always work out for the best, and who experience character growth throughout all six books (though there's always room for more should the author write a sequel series.) The Forgotten Realms consists of a large number of countries and cultures, most of which were not written by Erin M. Evans. Yet, she still manages to take these pre-written cultures and demonstrate the similarities and differences between them. Like her characters, she adds to the cultures' histories, and shows how they clash, and how they must adapt and grow in order to work together. Erin M. Evans is one of the best authors of Forgotten Realms books, and the Brimstone Angels books are exciting reads from beginning to end.

    I would really like to thank Erin M. Evans for writing such a fantastic, immersive, emotional, and beautiful series. Her characters are rich and surprisingly unique, yet believable.

Each of their small personal narratives intertwined within the larger story holds its own value and leads you along beside characters you grow to care and root for--from the main twins Farideh and Havilar and their devoted adoptive father Mehen whose love for his daughters is incredibly palpable all the way through, to characters like Dumuzi and his search for meaning and a place as a Chosen in a city of people who shun gods, and even the cambion Lorcan who is somehow as sympathetic as he is devious. The world built around them feels real, and the shifting plots throughout the overarching storyline of the series are compelling. The writing itself, always skillful, rises frequently to a masterful level, particularly in Evans' motif breathtaking prophetic dream scenes which appear throughout Brimstone Angels. This novel was an amazing end to a wonderful series, thrilling all throughout and closing on the kind of spirit I've grown to expect from Brimstone Angels: full of deep love and care, and in the very end, hopefulness and the will to try in the face of the unknown.

Hoping for a new storyline based off that "no closure" situation though, Erin! I also loved Mot and the hellhound, their development and relationship with Havi. Mot was an excellent addition. I feel like somewhere at the end we should of known more of the Grandmothers true fate, as well as the fiend lord that was stuck in the underdark, even if a few sentences written in jest. There was a lot of buildup on him, and more talk of the armies he couldnt send due to his confinement/disappearance so I feel something more should of happened there.

Is it wise to take down the king of the Hells, the God of Chaos? This whole series has been about legends and gods. Is there really one belief that is better than all the rest? Is one faction entirely good or evil? It is a fantasy that entertains and makes you think.

    The End of an another legendary Forgotten Realms series. I have no words to describe the deepest intrigue and cosmic conspiracy level of this book and the whole series.

    glad to finally be done with this series. I admit to frequently losing the thread from what had happened in previous books. I found the storyline frequently confusing. Between the nine hells, the dragon born, the gods, arch-devils, tieflings, and Chosen, it was just a lot to take in. Over all, I enjoyed the series though.

    A good ending to the series. TDYK is a pretty satisfying conclusion with a lot of what made the previous books so fun, pretty much intact. If I had a gripe, it would be that the ending happens in way too short of a space and the epilogue could have been lengthened.
