Review: The Sower Comes by Melissa Eskue Ousley @MEskueOusley

I've been so excited to get my hands on this last book in the Solas Beir Trilogy by Melissa Eskue Ousley and I can't wait to share it with all of you!

About the book: 

As the new king of a world in turmoil, life for David Corbin is grim, at best.

Abby Brown, the love of his life, has vanished without a trace, and David fears the worst. And, to make matters worse, a new evil has arisen, the mysterious Sower, a monster puppeteered by Tierney himself.

On the bright side, David has his treacherous aunt locked up in his dungeon, and she owes David for saving her life. Lucia may have critical information about Tierney’s plans for the Sower, but after all the trouble she’s caused, can David ever trust her again?

I was so excited to get my hands on this book! I've loved the series overall and I had high hopes for this final installment and I certainly wasn't disappointed. The characters continued to be complex and engaging, pulling me in with their internal and external struggles. I loved the development of Abby and David's relationship after everything they've been through, but there are so many other aspects to the story that draw readers in than just the wonderful romance.

It was heartbreaking to sit next to everyone through certain parts of the book (no spoilers) and experience their suffering along with the characters. I've always enjoyed Tierney's story and watching him struggle with his desires, demons, and lingering hope that things can turn out in a way that will accomplish the goals he originally started out trying to meet. His characters is fascinating, gut wrenching, and hands down difficult to walk away from.

I was so wrapped up in the story and emotions of the characters that teared up in a few places and I loved how expertly the author was able to write characters that you both loved and hated, rooted for and hoped for their downfall. It was such an emotional journey with these characters. The plot was well crafted as well, wrapping up all the questions and giving me a satisfying ending that it so difficult to find in many books. I highly recommend the entire series. Wonderful conclusion!
