Newly crowned as Queen of the enemy kingdom Syhl Shallow, Lia Mara struggles to rule with a gentler hand than her mother. But as Grey moves closer to claiming the crown of Emberfall, both Harper and Lia Mara are forced to question where they stand - and how far they can follow the dictates of their hearts.
Brigid Kemmerer's heart-pounding saga comes to a thrilling climax, as two kingdoms come closer and closer to conflict - and an old enemy resurfaces who could destroy them all.

A Vow So Bold and Deadly, the final book in the Cursebreakers Series continues right where the last book left off. Though it hasn't been that long since I read the last two books my memories were refreshed in a non info dumping way.
Like the previous books this is told from a number of different POVs - Harper, Grey, Rhen and Lia Mara. While it was nice to get the different perspectives it did take time and I found my attention waning with the back and forth and very little in the way of action.
I'm not sure that I can totally fault the book for my feelings. Since covid hit I have been craving faster paced stories, ones with more mystery and suspense. This was a slower paced story that did pick up speed for the last 1/3, thank goodness! The ending was fitting but nothing spectacular.
When put together as the whole series I really did enjoy it, especially the first two books.
This book was part of my 2021 Reading Off My Shelf Challenge - #35.
