his revenge on herFull Review Gizmos Reviews This entire series has been It was fast paced exciting with good characters fun action seuences and it was a perfect form of escapismThis is a really good YA historical fiction series Full review to come true rating 25 stars This series had so much potential but it ust never lived up to it IMO For the most part the premise of this series sounds amazing Celtic princess sold into slavery becomes Gladiatrix with lots of girl power and revenge HOWEVER you never really get any revenge or action for that matter Each installment consists of a lot of getting to the action literally 100s of pages of traveling and BS ust to get 1 2 chapters of action This series is mostly about political intrigue and there are good and bad people on both sides tropes I also never liked the love interests so I was kind of mehhhh about things As a historical fiction series these books are fun and well written If you are looking for an action packed revenge story about female gladiators skip this series and read Godsgrave Nevernight book 2 The Valiant 1 The Defiant 2 The Triumphant 3 4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum my favorite book of the trilogy but then again final books in a series seldom are mostly likely because of the high expectations placed on the ending Still this doesn t mean The Triumphant wasn t a great read because it absolutely was featuring all the incredible action and memorable character. The final book in the Valiant series takes Fallon and her warrior sisters on an epic ourney from the corrupt Roman Republic to the wonder of the ancient world Alexandria Egypt “You are from a world Fallon that values honor over everything else Rome is not that world”In the wake of their victorious fight to win back the Ludus Achillea Fallon and her gladiatrix sisters have become the toast of the Republic Only for Fallon glory turns to ashes when she learns that Cai.

THE ONLY WAY FORWARDBETWEEN WORKING TO SAVE CAI THEonly way forwardBetween working to save Cai the leading up to the need to escort Cleopatra to Alexandia as well as the ourney itself the book provides ample and well utilized opportunity for a good deal of action and fighting and danger Then there is an additional threat towards the end of the book that leads to even action If there is one thing this book is not lacking it is conflict There s plenty of it and when one threat gets thing this book is not lacking
It Is Conflict Thereis conflict There plenty of it and when one threat gets something else is immediately there to endanger Fallon and those she lovesMy only concern with the book is that it felt like a lot happened so much that it seemed rushed at points It s that fine line of keeping a fast pace and the level excitement up and feeling like major events are ust flying by so uick it was hard to fully appreciate everything This is the reason that I gave this book a slightly lower rating than the first two in the series I feel like in sections particularly the end it was so much so uick that it was all over before I realized I couldn t help but wonder if this could have been expanded to be a 4 book series or maybe I was ust sad it endedI do want to stress that overall this is an amazing series and while I may feel this is the weakest book of the three it is still an incredible ourney that has a magnificent ending Highly recommend all of the books and I can t wait to find out what Livingston writes next This book was crazy awesome I very satisfying conclusion though the battle at the end did seem a bit rushed However it did not take from the plot or even the satisfaction at the end There were some heartbreaking moments so the series ended in no way with every character readers have grown to love getting their happy ending This has been one of my favorite series of the last for years and it Stumbling Giants: Transforming Canada's Banks for the Information Age just so empowering Love itMy uick and simple overall absolutely engrossing finale to an amazing series.

S I ve grown to love a way I did feel like the scope of the story was a little smaller and less epic in this one but the conclusion was ab Destiny is not something that is given It s something you prove yourself worthy of taking The Triumphant is the fast paced and glorious conclusion to the Valiant trilogy This trilogy definitely taking The Triumphant is the fast paced and glorious conclusion to the Valiant trilogy This trilogy definitely recognition I loved the previous books and I didn t expect anything less from the finale tbh I wasn t disappointedAgain this was fast paced but never felt rushed It was a great mix of heart I didn t think it possible that each cover would surpass the previous but whaddya know I stand proven wrong and am Much better than the second book but not as good as the first RTC after a few The Triumphant was awesome awesome and awesome It was totally worth my time Review from Tenacious Reader has been such a fun series and this final installment was not a disappointment Fallon continues to be a fierce warrior and leader I love her and her fellow gladiatrices We also get to see of Cai in this book which is always a plusSpeaking of Cai some time has passed between the end of the second book and the beginning of this one During that time Fallon has felt rejected by him and while she doesn t understand what happened she accepts it even though she obviously still cares deeply for him When Fallon learns that Cai is in trouble she will do whatever it takes to help him without hesitationThis is one of the characteristics that I love about Fallon her unwavering support for those she loves as well as what she believes is right After a very catastrophic event in Rome she she learns that Cleopatra is in grave danger so of course takes on the mission of ensuring Cleopatra s safety as they Unexpected Circumstances journey to Egypt where she will be safeThis is a book that really tests allegiances and friendships There are some great twists of both betrayal and unexpected support It makes you realize you can t alwa.
