The breathless finale to the New York Times bestselling Rebel of the Sands series will have you on the edge of your seat until the dust from the final battle clears!
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.


Thank you Penguin Teen for sending me Hero at the Fall for review. This in no way affected my opinion. 

This was a stunning and magical conclusion to the trilogy. I had so many feeling reading this conclusion. It was so very touching and emotional. I may have ugly cried. 

Alwyn created a world with layers that you can believe in. I think I would have been disappointed if there were no casualties. This is a war for power and I think when war and power shift lives are at stake. I have read so many books that the Author is scared to kill off any of the characters for fear the readers will be upset. Well I want you to rip my heart out and leave it on the floor and then stomp on it. It is those honest moments when a writer can connect with a reader and give us a glimpse into their world and heart. Alwyn did that for me and I say make me cry Alwyn any time.

That is not to say an author can not give you a happy ending that can make you cry. I cried many times during this final book. It was poetic and beautiful. I am going to share my favorite quote.

"I came apart in his hands, and he in mine. Both of us shattering into sand and dust and sparks, until we were both just infinite stars tangled together in the night."
~ page 378 from ARC of Hero at the Fall by Alwyn Hamilton
