Hum hum, I don t see any reference to my dear Malek in this synopsis yes still hoping and in denial going back in my dark corner to mourn
Wat een fantastisch einde van de reeks Van boek 1 waar we Nalia leren kennen als slaaf op aarde tot boek 3 waar ze teruggaat naar Arjinna om haar rijk te redden, deze reeks verveelt geen moment
The message in this book is loud and clear Never stop fighting for what you believe in no matter how bleak the circumstances might be The characters journeys and unrelenting fight will resonate with readers of today as our world faces pain, oppression, brokenness, and an innumerable amount of other issues things that Raif, Nalia, Taz, and everyone else in FREEDOM S SLAVE had to faceEEDOM S SLAVE tops out at over 600 pages, which is admittedly a little intimidating and quite a commitment But I m [...]
By now, you may know that I am a big fan of the Dark Caravan Cycle by Heater Demetrios Exquisite Captive is a story of passion, of pain and ultimately of the power that can be found in freedom and Blood Passage is filled with precise detailing, inspiring character growth and absolutely gorgeous writing , making it an equally fabulous sequel It s no wonder that I went into the final book in the trilogy with exceedingly high expectations All I wanted was for Nalia and Raif to finally find happines [...]
REALLY GOOD Nalia and Raif are amazing together My favorite characters are Taz and Thatur Thatur was strict but funny towards Nalia and Taz went through a lot and still didn t give up All of the characters throughout the books were amazing I like this book a lot I look forward to reading books about Jinn, love, happiness, and defeat
If you want a trilogy where everyone fucking dies I don t know why I love it so much after my heart being broken multiple times Oh right, because it s beautiful The world and characters are so vivid Highly underrated trilogy, which is a real tragedy.
Reading Freedom s Slave after Blood Passage which ended up being an epic disappointment was extremely hard for me because I didn t know whether or not if I should read it Exquisite Captive is still one of my all time favorite books and Malek is one of my favorite characters, ever I was so upset about the development of his character in Blood Passage I still am I still hoped for the best but that didn t exactly work out I don t like Nalia and Raif s relationship Everything happened too fast for m [...]

Initially, I wanted to give this book a 1 Star rating but then stopped myself and decided not to give it a rating at all I actually finished this about a week ago, but have been trying to organize my thoughts as to how I felt about it hence the hemming and hawing on the rating and, ultimately, I can sum it up in two words one, I understand, is not technically a word heartbreakingly disappointing I really, really enjoyed the first two books in this series and I absolutely love Heather Demetrios w [...]
When I heard that I d get to review FREEDOM S SLAVE by Heather Demetrios, I was ecstatic FREEDOM S SLAVE is the final book in the Dark Caravan Cycle I read the first book ages ago on a whim, and devoured it I read an ARC of BLOOD PASSAGE in 2015, when it was supposed to come out that October, but got pushed back to Spring 2016 As a result, I ended up reading it almost two years before FREEDOM S SLAVE came out, which was quite a wait I had to wait a while for FREEDOM S SLAVE, but boy, was it wort [...]
DNF 41%.First of all, I really love this series The story, the characters, the magic, the romance, the worlds, just everything about it I read the first two books in three days and they are quite lengthy I was excited to start this final part of the series and also kind of sad because that would mean leaving them behind Freedom s Slave started with the POV of Calar s lover Kesmir He s a very interesting character, and also the revelation of a person that was thought dead Then it continued with w [...]
Nalia disappears during the group s journey through the Eye of Iblis Things ha be become immensely dangerous for the rest of the group so they are forced to continue to Arjinna without her All roads lead to Arjinna war.The book starts with the POV of Kesmir, Calar s consort, reminding us that there are 2 sides to every story I really really like this character.It still took me quite some pages to get into the book, the first chapters were like incessant chatter, then I started to relax enjoy the [...]
This was an amazingly whimsical, sensual and enthralling series It was reminiscent of Alladin in how it incorporated the magical jinni elements and my notion of them, but it never became too stereotypical or expected so as to steer clear from becoming a ridiculous representation of jinni fiction It was well written, action packed, and I love how the main character and her love interest had this star crossed lovers feel to them, ever since the beginning of this series The message was also a very [...]
I enjoyed the first two books in this series, but this book was a mess I gave up around 1 4 into the book Too many points of views and Nalia was hardly in it the 1 4 that i read The story was a bleak mess that i could not wait to leave I hate when the readers knows something that most of the characters in the book does not, and the author then drags out the reveal for the longest time, while we have to read through angst and excessive mourning It is so annoying It is a pity The first two books w [...]
So this book pulls a New Moon and view spoiler Nalia disappears for half of it hide spoiler Normally this would piss me off, but I think other stuff in the book makes up for it and it all works out okay New and interesting characters are introduced, we see things from different perspectives, and I think the ending is a bit refreshing since view spoiler the final battle is survival from the gods plagues than a one on one battle hide spoiler Though the final one on one battle between Nalia and Ca [...]
I like Heather Demetrios contemporary novels immensely, and I even really enjoyed the first book in this series, but I should have stopped there This book was too long by half and it suffers from the same horrible narrator as the previous book So much happens and the reader is given little time to react before something else happens and the cycle starts anew Also, the whole book focused on this person or that pining away for someone else, Nalia was a non character for a big chunk of the book, an [...]
This is a short review here but I finally got around to reading this book been wanting to read this book for a while now but unfortunately I was disappointed with it and if I m being entirely honest here I preferred the first two books over this one, especially the first one which will always be a favourite of mine But overall I thought this book was a decent read but I think I ve left too much time between reading the second book and this one and because of that I have forgotten some things wh [...]
I began reading this book with the expectation that I would enjoy it as I did the other two books in this series, but alas Freedom s Slave was terrible My two main problems were that the plot was just so SLOW and I just couldn t connect to the characters or form any sympathy towards them I honestly don t know how I managed to finish this book as the first half was basically Raif grieving for Nalia I gave it two stars because despite it s MANY flaws, the book does a good jobs of closing the serie [...]
I read 38 pages up till chapter 5 and was kind of disappointed about the lack of Nalia and I read some other reviews This book is 580 pages and I am very busy with school, so struggling through this long finale is not going to be an enjoyable experience, especially since I got this from the library and it has a due date I shouldn t request books when I m this busy I ll just check it out again in the summer hopefully Or maybe listen to the audiobook, which sounds pretty good.Also I can t remember [...]
So I read this book, before I realized it was the end of a series It was so intriguing, so I will go back eventually and read the first 2 books That being said, I was in somewhat of a disadvantage, but truly enjoyed the snippet I read of the series.3 stars
This book had really great moments and potential but it just felt like so much was crammed into this book without the proper time to flesh it all out Honestly it was hard to keep up at times I think it would have been better to have spread it out to at least another book.
This is such an excellent series This final book was all I wanted and I m going to miss these characters a lot I really hope this is the first of many other fantasy series or books by this author.
There was alot of build up that personally didn t really spark like I thought it would I did like the ending though.
Great end to the series One of those books you barely notice is almost 600 pages long I have too many feelings to write a full length review right now.Longer review to come.
AMAZING I need of this wonderful land and its characters 3
I LOVED This book Review to come for TeenReads
Absolutely loved this series It s slow going at times, but has gorgeous and interesting world building, wonderful characters and beautiful prose Cannot recommend .
I feel slightly cheated with the last third of the book but it was better than expected.
This is a very, very, VERY honorary 4 star I don t have the heart to rate it lower because I feel that this trilogy is so underrated as a whole, but for this book itself, I see it of a 3 and perhaps at most a 3.25.I do think this book highlights how ridiculous racism can be like seriously, you really are going to kill infants because they are of a specific race What a way to reflect how some people in our society still couldn t look past what s beyond the color of people s skin.But yeah, unfort [...]
