The action-packed finale to the Heart of Dread series

In this epic conclusion to the trilogy, Nat and Wes go on a journey to find the Rift, save the source of magic and defeat the Drau, the pirates, and the RSA—but at a great sacrifice. Wes is dying, and as he's rotting the Drau will let the rot "cleanse" the source of magic, dooming Wes forever. Nat and Wes discover that the source of the magic lies in the Drakon—the key to the Blue, the protector, the soul of the world. But in order to close the Rift, a great sacrifice is needed. In the words of the sylphs, death is life, and now the worlds can be reborn again.

Golden, the final book in the Heart of Dread trilogy, was everything that I could have hoped for and more. I absolutely loved this book and it was most definitely my favourite of the series. It was action packed and charged with emotion. It was utterly perfect.

Nat and Wes have lost so much already and thier journey has only just begun. They need to find the Rift, the source of magic in order to defeat their enemies. But it's all going to come at a great cost... because to save this dying and dangerous world the ultimate sacrifice must be made.

Melissa de la Cruz and Michael Johnston have really created a fantastic story here and I've loved every moment of each of the books and I really can't praise their story-telling skills enough. From the moment I picked Golden up I couldn't put it down. I just needed to know what was going to happen.

Honestly, Golden broke my heart so much. This is definitely the most emotional book of the series and I was so heartbroken and crying throughout a lot of it. But really the ending is realistic and perfect for the series. Wes and Nat have to go through so much but all the trauma and heartbreak was worth it.

Golden was a fantastic end to a fantastic series. I loved every second of it and I cannot recommend this phenomenal series enough. It has everything you could possibly want from a dystopia series, it was wonderful and one I know I will enjoy again and again.
