Mireya has plans. She’s just moved in with Deniel and is looking forward to starting their lives together. And then her oldest two sisters show up on her doorstep. The Crown Princess wants Mireya to host a summit involving all of the nations involved to deal with the Cataclysm once and for all as it’s clear that if they don’t figure out how to, they’re all doomed. So, Mireya will have to gather both her families, the one she’s made in Sayorsen and the one she was born into, and see if she can bring people together enough that to actually save the world.
This is the final book in the Tea Princess trilogy, and it has the hardest for me to get started on. I don’t know what it was about the first few chapters, but it was a slog getting started. However, once I did get a little further, I was completely drawn into the story. We get to meet the rest of Mireya’s sisters who are a fascinating collection, though this books really focuses on her oldest sister (Iryasa) and her youngest (Karisa). Saiyana is still around but mostly in the background though she does play an important role and the second oldest sister (Reyata) is present but not very active in the story which is too bad. Once again, the relationships are the real focus of the story which was quite enjoyable.
This book was really heavy on the political intrigue, and I can see why that might not work for everyone. I really enjoyed the book once I got into it though. All in all it was a pretty satisfying conclusion to the series. While I wouldn’t mind more stories set in this world, I’m pretty content with how it left things. Four out of five stars.
