Wrath (Hardcover, 2016, Tor Books) 5 stars

Events are coming to a climax in the Banished Lands, as the war reaches new …

A great ending to my favourite series of the year

5 stars

The Faithful and the Fallen series by John Gwynne is the best series that I read this year.

The progression of all the characters from Malice all the way through to Wrath was exceptional. I am satisfied with all the endings within the book, even the ones that pulled on my heart strings.

Gwynne's ability to write immersive combat can also not be rivaled. It's thrilling to witness the many battles within this series and there were many times that I had to stop and take a breath after a fight.

I think that the previous book, Ruin, still is my favourite book in the series, but Wrath holds a special spot as one of the most epic finales I've ever experienced across any medium.

I highly recommend this series and am excited to continue my adventures in the Banished Lands soon.
