Aetherwars is the fourth and final book of its series. The tale sums everything up from its predecessors. Everything is put to the test at the end. The Aetherborn leader of the elementals, Ruby Black, once again has hard decisions to make. Her boyfriend, Liam, is captured, she has to make an army and lead it, but Ruby isn’t sure she is going to get there in time. There are much higher risks and facts this time as the protagonist really stretches her abilities to conquer the inevitable goal.
The story begins with book 1, AetherBorn, 2. AetherQueen, 3. AetherBlood, and 4. AetherWars. I began reading the series from the end and so it took me a while before I understood what is going on.
Ruby’s journey to face her mortal enemy for the last time, getting to Tartarus and saving her boyfriend, was an epic adventure as the place was just filled with nightmares and torment.
The heroine’s personality seems to have grown from the previous books as the author did brush off references for the reader, and that gave me the impression that Ruby had changed. Liam and Demas, however, who were the lead male characters didn’t grow or show much character depth.
The narrative and literature were descriptive and written with an exciting notion of thrill. I particularly enjoyed the little passes of doubts, love, and action of the book.
I would recommend this book to new adult urban fantasy readers.
