    Pregnant women - beware! (but still a good book)

    This review was written for The Sword and the Song - eBook.
    Heads up to any pregnant ladies who may read this book - just be prepared to let your hormone imbalance get the best of you. Had I not been pregnant, I probably would have shed a tear or two at some point ... instead, I completely had a meltdown. Body wracking sobs, an ocean of tears, and the tears continued to threatened their return some hours after I was finished with this book. The fact that the book highlighted some of my personal worst fears I'm sure didn't help in my current state. Laureano told the story the well (otherwise, why would I cry?) but I thought other ladies sharing my condition may appreciate the warning.

    That said, I loved Book 1 in this trilogy. I read it the summer it came out and actively tried to stay abreast for information about book 2. Somehow I *entirely* and completely missed it's release in January! When I had the opportunity to review this book, I jumped at the chance. No where was there indication that this was book 3! As a result, as I read I was very, very confused many times.

    It didn't matter that I read the first book over a year ago, I can usually pick up where I left off and details, if forgotten, will return as I read. This time there were so many blank spaces. I couldn't imagine not remembering so much. I actually started thinking Laureano just had a large time gap between the books and filled readers in with what happened in this peculiar fashion. Except, it seemed that the reader was expected to remember. The thought that I missed book 2 never crossed my mind! So please - please! do yourself a favor and read the first TWO books before reading this one.

    The fact that the book still receives 4 stars in spite of the lack of knowledge I had going in says something for the quality of the work. It is likely that, once I read book 2, it will earn all 5 stars.

    Truly, Laureano has crafted a believable world with characters in whom you vest yourself without intention. This book also deals with some heavy material no present in other books labeled YA. Don't let the label put you off! This is truly an excellent series (I am making assumptions about book 2 based off books 1 & 3) to be enjoyed by young adults and adults alike! The depth, credibility, and craftsmanship of the story far exceed any other YA novel I have read to date.

    The series does nicely wrap up with this work (which doesn't mean 100% happy, there is certainly an element of deep loss, hence all my tears, but real life isn't always 100% happy), but I can also see it providing a springboard for future series, if she chooses.

    Summary/Takeaways:

    -- make sure you read the previous 2 books of the trilogy

    -- if you are of a hormonal disposition or in a hormonal season, you will likely shed massive tears

    -- even with the gap of book 2, this is one of the best YA books I've read. I simply refuse to give it 5 stars until I see how exactly the books transition one to the other, and if there are loose ends or particulars I think not finished in the best fashion.

    If book 2 is on the same level as Books 1 & 3, this could easily be a trilogy that needs to be included in home libraries everywhere, and a series to whole-heartedly recommend to youth looking for good examples, valor, honor, and making extremely difficult right choices.

    I received a complimentary ecopy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

    C.E. Laureano in her new book The Sword and the Song Book Three in The Song Of Seare series published by NavPress continues the adventure with Conor and Aine

    From the back cover: The shadow of war.

    A clash of brothers. A terrible sacrifice. In the face of powerful darkness, who will prevail?

    The island of Seare is at war. The Red Druid is gathering strength and power to stand against Conor, Eoghan, and the brotherhood. But there is strife within the brotherhood as well. Eoghan still refuses to claim his rightful rule, and the resulting conflict creates an uncomfortable distance between him and Conor. When Conor leaves to find the key to defeating the Red Druid, Eoghan and Aine worry he will succumb to the danger. They set out on their own mission to defeat the Red Druid through Aines magical gifts.

    But nothing―and no one―is as it seems.

    This is it! This is the book we have been waiting for. This is the epic conclusion, third act, of the Song of Seare Trilogy. Act One, Oath of the Brotherhood introduced Conor and Aine and got the action going. Act Two, Beneath the Forsaken City, is where the action really took off and it seemed The Red Druid had the upper hand. The Sword and the Song is Book Three in the series and this is the final battle with The Red Druid. In an effort to defeat the reign of terror Conor and Eoghan separate knowing that one or both of them may not survive. Ms. Laureano has given us a very exciting story filled with high drama. She has also given us plenty to think about as she shows us the need to press close to God for His support and His guidance. Great stuff! I am sorry that this is the final book of the series. While I am looking forward to other books from this very talented author I am hoping that one day she will take us back to the land of Seare with new adventures.
