NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER The epic sequel to the book Song of Silver, Flame Like Night, is a fast-paced, riveting YA fantasy inspired by the mythology and folklore of ancient China. The Demon Gods have risen. Skies End has fallen to the colonizers. And Lan and Zen have chosen sides. But they will not fight together. Though Lan inherited the power of the Silver Dragon, she understands the path she must take. She believes the Demon Gods to be the cause of war, conflict, and turmoil, and that the future of the Last Kingdom depends on their being eliminated forever. Worse, she knows that if the Elantians manage to bind one of the legendary beings, their army will be unstoppable. To save her kingdom and her people, Lan will need to find the only mythical weapon capable of destroying the Demon Gods: the Godslayer. Zen is sure that the only way to free the Last Kingdom is to use the power of the Demon Gods. When he bound the Black Tortoise, he paid the ultimate price: to inherit its strength, he will forfeit his body, his mind, and his soul. Yet one Demon God is not enough against the might of the colonizers. In the ruins of the northern Mansorian lands slumbers a magical army of demonic practitioners capable of facing off against the Elantiansbut Zen must find the Seal to awaken them to fight by his side. At the center of both Lans and Zens journeys is one city: Shaklahira, a former stronghold of the Imperial Court that vanished without a trace when the Elantians invaded. Its location is a mystery, and both are sure that it holds the answers they need, but the past it hides might be more dangerous than anything theyve faced yet. The battle for the Last Kingdom rages on. But to win the war, Lan will have to decide: Can she face the boy she loves again? And when she does, can she kill him to free her people?… (mais)

The ending of the Song of the Last Kingdom duology picks up years after the Elantian’s invaded Lan’s homeland and killed her mother. Determined to finish her mother’s legacy, Lan departs to destroy the Demon Gods. Meanwhile, Zen makes a deal with the Demon God known as the Black Tortoise and has set out to save everyone - even if that means destroying himself.

The world building in this book was so much more than I felt like we got in the first book. We find out more about the Demon Gods and how they came to be and why. We find out the history of the imperial clan and how they’ve wiped out complete clans and disconnected people from their culture and ancestors.

There is a lot of yearning in this book - which is why I didn’t give it full five stars (sorry, I’m not the biggest fan of YA romance). As much as the first book had more action packed scenes, this one was more of a build up to the conclusion, which made me care more for Lan and Zen.

I was worried we wouldn’t have everything wrapped up as we were still given quite a bit of newer things with this book as well, but I really love and appreciate the ending of the series.

Overall, I can see myself recommending this series to those who love fantasy, especially those inspired by Chinese mythology and folklore. The writing is gorgeous and the world building was amazing. This was a series that I myself got into better while listening to as an audiobook, and that was mostly because I would get stuck on pronouncing things correctly. ( )
