Victoria Aveyard’s Fate Breaker Is A Show-Stopper!

For those of you on BookTok, we’re sure you’ve heard of Victoria Aveyard at least once every time you scroll. And for good reason! She has just released the incredible conclusion to her high-fantasy Realm Breaker series, and we at THP have the pleasure of reviewing it!

We highly recommend reading the first two books if you haven’t yet. Victoria Aveyard’s Fate Breaker doesn’t miss a beat and picks up right from the illegal cliffhanger of Blade Breaker. (Yes, we were whisper-screaming the whole time.)

With Corayne and her Companions scattered across Allward, they must find their way back to each other before the impending war determines the fate of the realm. Fate Breaker by Victoria Aveyard is a show-stopper, and here are just three things we love about it!

Book Overview

Content Warnings: war, torture, blood, death, character death, murder, graphic depictions of violence, fires (Read at your discretion!)

Summary: The Companions are scattered and hopeless, torn from each other. After Corayne barely escapes with her life, she must forge on alone, leaving her blade broken and her allies behind her. Her only consolation—Corayne now has Taristan’s sword, the only Spindleblade left in existence. Without it, he can’t rip open any more Spindles. Without it, he can’t end the world.

But Taristan and Queen Erida will not be defeated so easily. Both will burn the world to bring down Corayne—and bring forth their demon god, What Waits, ready to claim the realm of Allward for his own.

In a final clash between kingdoms and gods, all must rise to fight—or be destroyed.

An Extra Perspective

We think everyone knows by now how much we love to read alternating points of view (especially in romance and fantasy novels). Fate Breaker by Victoria Aveyard continues its fantastic storytelling from Corayne, Andry, Domacridhan, Sorasa, and Erida’s perspectives. But we also get Charlie’s POV in the third book, a beloved and welcome voice from a former priest turned fugitive. Charlie has been the comedic relief since his introduction in the series, and we can appreciate the glimpses we get of his travels before and after reuniting with Corayne.

The Reunions

With Fate Breaker being the third and final book of the Realm Breaker series, we’ve long been attached to the Companions. And while the main characters assume the worst fate for their friends, the readers know just how hard everyone is fighting to get back together. Corayne races to escape a pack of hellhounds. Charlie roams The Castlewood looking for the Sirandel enclave as Andry and Valtik sail toward Jyd to find allies. Meanwhile, Domacridhan and Sigil get thrown into the dungeons of Ascal, with Sorasa not far behind. Regardless of where they are in the realm, every character does whatever it takes to find one another, and each reunion had us in tears.

How Everything Comes Together

Another plus to having multiple perspectives in Fate Breaker is the ability to track Queen Erida’s progress alongside the heroes’ journey. Erida and Taristan have gone after Corayne and her Companions for months on end. She conquers kingdom after kingdom while balancing her mind with that of the demon god, What Waits.

Everything leads up to the final battle in Iona. We see allies we never expected and characters we almost forgot about (hint: one’s a certain witch and the other an Ibalet heir). Corayne’s pirate mother, Meliz, played her role perfectly, even though she couldn’t fight in Iona. Taristan even surprised us with his character development. Of course, we can’t forget the epilogue. Wow. The callbacks melted our hearts, and each character’s ending felt right in every single way.
