As the timelines of Pendomus fray, one girl born with power has the ability to set things right….
Forcing her way into Videus’ vassalage may be the last thing Runa will ever do, but she knows she has to try. Not only are there others like her—others with powers—but they’re directly tied to her by blood. With Trae's mental stability in question, and Kani missing, Runa can only rely on herself and the aid of her brother to fulfill her destiny. If she can embrace her role as the Daughter of Five, hopefully she can set things right and free Trae from whatever madness is taking over his mind.
There’s more than meets the eye to Videus’ obsession with Runa and her bloodlines. The only problem is, unraveling the mystery could unleash catastrophe on everything she holds dear, if she’s not careful. Can Runa stop Videus once and for all—or will the fate of Pendomus be locked forever by one man’s madness?
Step into Pendomus - a world that meshes mystery, magical creatures, and destiny with science fiction and technology.

And so we have reached the end of the Pendomus Chronicles. And it was everything I could have hoped for! It all comes full circle, wrapping up all those loose tendrils. And thank god for that! Because I was starting to get a little lost with all the back and forth, zigging and zagging. It’s an extremely complex plot, but Andrews managed to catch it all up in the end. It was non-stop action, with an overwhelming sense of hope. I never doubted for a moment that the series would end with a happily-ever-after. Runa had worked too hard to lose it all at the last moment. That would have been a major disappointment.
There weren’t a whole lot of reminders about what happened in previous books, so I would recommend reading them all back to back. I was glad for having just recently finished the second book. It made the transition into the finale a lot easier than it could have been. I had previously said that the series read like a mature middle-grade novel, but the story has certainly gotten more mature throughout the series. While the language remains clean, there is a fade-to-black physical scene. Oh, and the body count!! Nobody is safe in this one, with an all-out war front and center. It doesn’t read as gory, but certainly, death plays an important part to the overall momentum.
Regardless of the fact that I didn’t have a clue who I could trust, I loved all the characters. There are HUGE additions to the cast, but at the same time, the initial favorites don’t play a huge role this time around. I missed them! It’ll be hard to say goodbye to them. I’m excited to see what Andrews comes out with next!
