Review: From Shadow and Silence by Carrie Ann Ryan
From Shadow and Silence
Carrie Ann Ryan
Elements of Five Series, Book 4
The unforgettable conclusion to the epic fantasy Elements of Five series from NYT Bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan.
The end of the centuries-long war is almost here, and the fate of the realm rests on one girl’s shoulders. The Gray has gathered his forces—and has Lyric in his clutches. The enemy’s plan to control the kingdoms has been revealed, but traitors from both sides might alter the course of fate.
Lyric must return to Easton and the others before all is lost. Battle lines must be forged, and surprising alliances cast. The prophecy has never altered, and life comes at an ultimate price. Not all who fight will survive, but in the end, it will come down to the choice of a Priestess and her soul.
Book 1: From Breath and Ruin
Book 2: From Flame and Ash
Book 3: From Spirit and Binding
Book 4: From Shadow and Silence
From beginning to end Carrie Ann Ryan keeps readers on the edge of their seats for the climactic conclusion of the Elements of Five Series. Shadow and Silence is a fantastic ending to this fantasy series.
Lyric has grown tremendously over the course of this series and everything she has prepared for comes to this point. Fighting through prophecy, enemies, friendship and love there’s a lot riding on this girl’s shoulders. The pieces of the puzzle are all about to fall in place, as twist interns come out of places we didn’t expect and the enemy is in breathing distance.
I am not a huge fan of young adult series however I do have to give Ms. Ryan credit where credit is due. Lyric is an exceptionally strong character who overcame many obstacles, she thought her destiny. The world building is outstanding. While reading you can almost feel as if you’ve stepped into another world. The characters are definitely what made the story but the setting enhances the telling of the tail in every way. The story is unique and is told in a way that just grabs the readers attention. Ms. Ryan ends this series fantasticall
