The thrilling conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Lone City trilogy, which began with The Jewel, a book BCCB said "will have fans of Oliver's Delirium, Cass's The Selection, and DeStefano's Wither breathless." Now in paperback.

For too long, Violet and the people of the outer circles of the Lone City have lived to serve the royalty of the Jewel. But now, the secret society known as the Black Key is preparing for a rebellion.

While Violet knows she is at the center of this revolt, she has a more personal stake in it—for her sister, Hazel, has been taken by the Duchess of the Lake. Now, after fighting so hard to escape the Jewel, Violet must do everything in her power to return not only to save Hazel, but the future of the Lone City.

I loved it, same as the others but it left me feeling unsettled. Too many unknowns. Yes, what about their mom's? What about the other paladin? Did they get to see over the wall? The society? Well? I could go on as she should have either in the Black Key or a new book (NOT A NOVELLA).But I really did love it. Would've given 5 stars. It's 3 & a half stars.

This is the third and final book in The Lone City series. In this one, Violet is going back to the Jewel to go after her sister Hazel. If caught, Violet will be sentenced to death. Violet has used her magic to disguise her appearance, however, her voice is the same so she must be careful that no one recognizes her. As Violet goes back the the Jewel, she works with the rebellion and they make a plan to take the island back and away from the royalty. Violet becomes more powerful as she understands how to work with the elements more. I really enjoyed this series, I liked all the books. I wanted to continue to read to find out if Violet was going to get caught. What would happen to her friends? Would they survive the rebellion? I was concerned about her sister, Hazel. Would Violet be able to get her out safely? I also liked how some of the characters who were basically forced into slavery, and didn't think they were worth anything, realized that there was so much more to them. They were not worthless. Ash was not a worthless pretty prostitute. The surrogates were not worthless throwaway girls either. Even some of the royals had more them than you would assume at first glance. I read reviews and some people didn't like the book or Violet. But she was the catalyst that caused so much change. She helped others see that there was more to them, she was hope for a better future. She helped others see themselves through different eyes.

This one didn't keep my attention as well as the previous two books, which is sad since it's the last book in the trilogy. I expected Violet to really come into her own during this book. She needed to, but I don't feel like she did. In ways, I feel she caused more harm than good, and that was disappointing. There was all this build up through most of the story, and I was expecting something big to go down. But it all fell a little flat for me in the end. I mean, all the loose ends that I can thing of were tied up, but I guess the ending just felt too rushed to me. I almost feel like I missed something, it all happened so fast. I don't know. I can't put a finger on it. Something still feels unfinished though.

The final book was amazing, completely with the read, and I just wish it wasn't over.

I loved all three of the books in this trilogy, and the two novellas. All of the stories kept me interested throughout. I read all of the books in about 2 weeks!
