What an end to an absolutely spectacular must read series!! This story is epic and it completely exceeded all of my very high expectations! When I read the last word of War of Torment, I literally just sat there for a while thinking about the incredible journey these characters have been on. I felt sad knowing that their stories are over. I’m seriously going to miss Marco.
I don't even know what to say without going into spoiler territory, especially if you haven't read the first three stories in this series, so I will just say this story has it ALL! There's action, romance, an amazingly creative world, main and secondary characters that I could read about for a long long time, character growth in spades, heartbreak (don't worry, Ms. Kendig puts the pieces back together - mostly!), and jaw-dropping surprises that will make you squeal out loud. Every time I thought I couldn't be surprised, I was. Every time I thought I knew what was going to happen, I didn't.
Ronie Kendig is a brilliant, creative writer who draws you into her stories and keeps you sucked in until the very last word where you are always left wanting more! This series is epic. It’s not to be missed. Not only does it have a permanent place on my keeper shelf, but it is one of my all time favorite series. Do not miss it. All the stars!

The time for peace is over—now he demands vengeance
They followed him back. Against his will, against his intention. Now enemies threaten from every direction. Amidst it all Marco Dusan struggles to lead his people, to help them survive, even mayhap win the war. He will take any advantage to even the odds. But only after tragedy strikes does he learn just how much he’s willing to sacrifice.
He's not alone. Droserans fight as one, united against the offworlders—Symmachians who covet their planet. With the aid of unexpected allies, the Droserans battle on longer than anyone could have anticipated. Yet they cannot win. And the Faa’Cris, those supernatural warriors, fair of face and fierce of mien, do nothing.
But not all have turned their backs. After a bitter year of pain and loss, Kersei Dragoumis navigates a new heritage, ever intent on defending her people. Like her, light-years away from the Quadrants and even farther from the girl she thought she was, Eija Zacdari must come to terms with a new role. Or, rather, with an ancient one. And her success or failure may determine back in the Quadrants who lives and who dies.
In the end, Marco will have vengeance for the torment brought by this war. No matter the price. Not even if the price is his soul.
