A Review of She Marches Through Fire written by A.M. Manay


STORY


TECHNICAL



If you've read She Dies at the End and She Lights Up the Dark, then I'm sure you've been waiting for this. I had great hopes for the finale, and now that I've read the ARC, I have to say that it was well worth the wait.



The November Snow Series is a supernatural story, complete with vampires, fairies and werewolves. Immortals and humans. Good and Bad. Supernatural fantasy fans will find enough to delightfully chew on here.


In the final book, She Marches Through Fire, November's maker is dead and she's back with her supernatural family. The refuge, Eden, is threatened, as well as the rest of the world, as William continues to gather human and supernatural creatures to his side in his great plan to control humanity.


As with the previous books in the series, Manay's characters are so well developed each one sticks to your memory long after you've read the book. And they're not boring either, they're multi-faceted. You can't pin down whether you like them or not. Who's the hero and who's the villain?

What I loved about She Marches Through Fire is Luka's character; how Manay shows the different, complicated sides of him. You can't help but understand and feel for this villain in the first 2 books. It shows that you cannot judge a person simply by looking at their actions; without knowing how they became that way. It also shows the power of love to change a person's perspective. Powerful stuff here. Luka's character progression is the highlight of this series, in my opinion, although all the characters have depth.

The latter part of the story was a pleasant surprise. I'm not sure I should say what that is. Just know that this part is what brings the series full circle. 

And the ending? Superb. A poignant and magnificent conclusion to a wonderful story.

This series is a must read. It's so good I will read it all again and keep it in my collection. I'm kind of sad it has ended. A continuation of the ending and a new series, perhaps? 


If you haven't read the first book yet, try it now. You'll enjoy it.
