When She Reigns (Fallen Isles, #3)

Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy

The First Dragon

The Great Abandonment has begun. Panic has seized the Fallen Isles, where no one knows which god will rise next. Mira Minkoba believes her dreams hold the secret to bringing an end to the destruction, but in order to save her people, she’ll have to find a legendary treasure: the bones of the first dragon.

The Last Hope

Mira’s desperate search leads the Hopebearer and her friends on a dangerous journey into the heart of enemy territory: the Algotti Empire itself. The empress is more than willing to help—for an impossible price. And as tensions escalate beneath the shadows of the risen gods, Mira grapples with a terrifying question: What will she have to sacrifice to preserve what she loves?

The explosive finale to Jodi Meadows’s Fallen Isles trilogy is ablaze with sizzling romance and fiery magic as Mira’s fight to save dragons from extinction evolves into a mission to save her world from annihilation.

Review & Reading Guide

The Great Abandonment could have been prevented. But it was not.

– When She Reigns

We’ve seen Mira and her found family go from the worst imprisonment in history to running for their lives and now we watch as their worlds crumble before their eyes. Their gods are abandoning them as the people have abandoned their commitments to protecting their world…and their dragons.

Dang, does it hurt.

Before She Ignites. As She Ascends. When She Reigns. There are no more perfect titles for where Mira is along this journey. This is the book where Mira finds her voice. Where she finds her purpose.

Where everything falls apart.

I wish I could say that Mira easily puts everything back together again wrapped in a shiny dragon tail but this is still a finale by Jodi Meadows and you know she’s going to give you reality. Rebellion is hard. Leading people is hard. Knowing what the right thing to do is hard. So much of the story mirrors our current world politics and the discrimination many people face.

Endings make the way for beginnings…

I won’t give away the big twist in this book but let’s just say each book brings dragons more and more into the forefront. If As She Ascends was all dragons, all the time then When She Reigns is just living in dragon town. Yes, we see all of the dragons we’ve met before and yes we meet even more dragons. Dragons are the heart of this land and they remain a main source of conflict. Be prepared for all the feels and an ending that leaves you satisfied and knowing that hope and love truly do win.

The Fallen Isles Reading Guide

Sarah @ The Clever Reader and I put together this reading guide for As She Ascends and updated it for When She Reigns, with updated options for hosting a read-a-long, guides to surviving long journeys, and a capsule wardrobe to fit a Hopebearer! Plus more!
