Scepter of Fire is the epic conclusion to the Scepter and Crown series by C. F. E. Black. This story was so good, beautifully tying up all the loose threads. And while I absolutely love Aly and Red, Grey is still my favorite character! He’s that secondary character that immediately jumps off the page right into your heart!
Without giving away any spoilers, I can say this story exceeded all of my expectations. I am totally happy with how the main characters and the secondary characters stories ended. I was totally sighing during the last few chapters! The action in this story had me turning the pages as fast as I could to see how Aly and Red were going to win the final, epic battle. This is such a creative series and I loved seeing how it all unfolded!
While I’m sad this series is over, and I will definitely miss these characters, I cannot wait for Ms. Black’s next story! It sounds amazing! I highly recommend this YA fantasy series!
*I bought a copy of this book and I also received a complementary copy. This is a clean read, but full of allegory. 5 stars.

A love that cannot be.Shocked by the revelation that followed the official coronation, Aly and Red march toward dangers they never saw coming and away from the things they both want most. Each must face their deepest fears and darkest secrets, finding strength when all hope is lost.
Death follows them. Evil hunts them. As a battle looms and a shadow rises, there remains only one path forward, and it will bring them toward their most difficult decision yet. To succeed is to lose something dear, but to fail is to watch the world fade into an eternal night.
Will the Beacon and Beholder fulfill their destiny—and will it be what they all hoped?
