Goodbye, Bird! lacked aot of the surprises that so delighted me in the first two books Much of this one featured Fallon and her companions simply reacting to the reality of their new circumstances instead of driving the plotHowever as with the previous novels in the series Lesley Livingston has also added her own flourishes to the history to make things interesting including familial drama additional conspiracies and a touch of the darkly mystical The action is also top notch with superb fight scenes and battle seuences This has always been one of my favorite aspects of this series because the author has such a knack for describing the action so vividly that everything plays out Cannibal like a movie in your mindAt this point I ve also grown comfortably attached to all these characters and yet it still surprised me how much it hurt whenever weost someone It s a testament to how well they ve been written and developed that I should feel so emotionally invested in their fates In addition the friendships that have been forged between Fallon and her gladiatrix sisters are those I will remember for a Mastered (The Enforcers, long time I think it s safe to say that our protagonist got the ending she s earned for herself and the friends and the final pages were deeply satisfying as a resultAll in all I was very happy with The Triumphant and the way it concluded the Valiant trilogy and I honestly can t remember theast time I had this much fun with a YA series Lesley Livingston is now a must read author for me anything else she writes I Man, Son of Man ll be thereAudiobook Comments I ve said it before and Il say it again Fiona Hardingham rocks Fortunately for me she narrates a Alter Ego lot of YA and my heart always does aittle cheer whenever I see her name isted for an audiobook I Much better than the second book but not as good as the first RTC after a few Source LibraryGenre Young Adult FantasyRating 35 4ThoughtsThe Triumphant is the final installment in author Lesley Livingston s The Valiant trilogy This story takes place several months after the events of The Defiant which saw protagonist Fallon Ferch Viricio and her fellow gladiatrices win back the Ludus Achillea from a despicable man named Pontius Auila or the Collector as he is called A man who had plans for Fallon for a ong time now A man who isn t patient in getting his revenge on herFull Review Gizmos Review.
