When gunslinging Amani Al'Hiza escaped her dead-end town, she never imagined she'd join a revolution, let alone lead one. But after the bloodthirsty Sultan of Miraji imprisoned the Rebel Prince Ahmed in the mythical city of Eremot, she doesn't have a choice. Armed with only her revolver, her wits, and her untameable Demdji powers, Amani must rally her skeleton crew of rebels for a rescue mission through the unforgiving desert to a place that, according to maps, doesn't exist. As she watches those she loves most lay their lives on the line against ghouls and enemy soldiers, Amani questions whether she can be the leader they need or if she is leading them all to their deaths. (Goodreads)

Hero at the Fall, the third and final book in the Rebel of the Sands series by Alwyn Hamilton, and was also one of my most anticipated releases for 2018, (and for a good reason). I read the first two books in the series, Rebel of the Sands and Traitor to the Throne, back when they were first released, and completely adored the stories. I had the pleasure of re-reading both books again in the past two months to get prepared for this final story, and I have to say I enjoyed those books even more now having re-read them. And this third and final book was complete and absolute perfection.

Without giving too much away, since this is the third book in the series, I'm going to tell you all the things I liked about the book. The first thing, as always, was the main character, Amani. I have loved Amani since I first met her in the very beginning of the series.  I love that she is fierce and courageous, while also being completely unpretentious as well. I love how much she loved her little rebel family, and was willing to do just about anything to keep them safe. She is amazing.

Another thing I loved about the story is the amazing secondary characters. After the ending of Traitor to the Throne, I didn't know what fate to expect for some of these people that I've come to care for so much. Much like real life, not everyone gets a happy ending, and the body count was a lot higher than I expected. My heart hurt at times for them, and in other times I cheered and celebrated for them. It was hard not to. Read the story and you will see exactly what I mean.

Also, Amani and Jin are my most favorite. Just sayin'.

Another of my most favorite things about this series is the storyline for the books. I can't say I've read too many books about Djinni, but I find the stories and tales included in this series completely fascinating. I definitely need more books like this in my life. Hero at the Fall was full of both fast paced action, and slow paced anticipation. I held my breath throughout the story, waiting to see what surprise would pop up next, and I loved every minute of it. This book was the perfect ending to a great series.

Overall, Hero at the Fall was an excellent finale to this much loved sequel! I absolutely hate to see the series come to an end, as the story and characters have fascinated me for so long, and I'm going to have a hard time letting everything go. If you can't tell by my rambling thoughts above, I really liked this series, and I hope that you will too, should you decide to check it out for yourself. (Do it, you won't regret it!) *grin*
