“Show me a hero; and I’ll write you a tragedy.” -F. Scott Fitzgerald
Hero and Villain.
Good and Evil.
Love and Hate.
Would that the world were that simple. Nothing is ever simple in a world filled with superheroes and villains. She may not wear a cape or have superpowers, but no one would say Joanna Fallon isn’t a hero. At great personal cost she’s saved the city of Galilee Falls from two supervillains, but has finally found a measure of peace. But whatever rises often falls, and even the city’s champion may not be able to fight the cataclysm about to befall not only her city but the whole of the world…or even want to.
Read the conclusion to the critically acclaimed Galilee Falls trilogy from the imagination of the IPPY award winning author Jennifer Harlow.
Fall of Heroes was a spectacular ending to the Galilee Falls Trilogy! I really think Jennifer Harlow is the queen of plot twists. She really is. The suspense, the action, the romance it all had me on the edge of my seat!
I absolutely adored the prologue of the book. I don’t wanna give too much away but I remember shouting, I KNEW IT I KNEW IT! With a few f-bombs thrown in there as well. So let’s say yes, it was a fantastic start. The story just got better and better.
I must admit that I didn’t always liked Joanna in the book. I do admire how tough she is but still sometimes I wanted to shake her and ask what heck she is thinking. Still, she’s a great character to read about. And I absolutely love her with Jem. I think from all the guys in the book, he is her perfect fit.
The action started when a bunch of supervillains are taken from the prison they’re in. Alkaline being one of them. Nobody has an idea who took them, only that it can’t be good news. I had a suspicion who it was and I really went back on forth on who this person could be. In the end I was right so it was yet another I KNEW IT moment but still fun to read about.
There were a lot of moments where I thought it wouldn’t end well for Joanna and Jem. I had expected a kind of bittersweet ending with the way it was going towards the end of the book.
The writing, as always, was so great. The author never disappoints me with it. And yeah, quite a few plot twists never made the story boring. I loved it!
