Summary

A gripping Orwellian vision of Britain, with a rebellious Hunger Games heart, Bright Ruin is the third and final title in Vic James’ electrifying Dark Gifts Trilogy, following Tarnished City.

In a world where the lower classes must endure 10 years of forced service to a magical aristocracy, a revolution is brewing that will transform - or destroy - the world. And not everyone will be saved....

Perfect end to the Dark Gifts trilogy

I really enjoyed Bright Ruin, the final installment of the Dark Gifts trilogy.

The storyline was satisfying, and shocking, answered questions, asked more questions, went the way I imagined and the way I never thought.

Really enjoyed it and highly recommend the whole trilogy.

Enjoyable

I really enjoyed this trilogy and the ending was partly how I wanted it to end. However I would have liked to know more about what happened to Luke and Silyian!!

Cliffhanger resolution on final book of a trilogy

I enjoyed the story despite the more disturbing aspects snuck in like Rape, torture and child abuse. However the author’s fondness for ending books without a real resolution is pretty annoying. I personally like the characters I’ve followed through books like this to have some sort of resolution (good or bad) so was frustrated by this series. Still it’s a good book, especially if you like Hunger Games or Divergent

Still loads of questions

Really enjoyed this trilogy, fustration a bit at the ending though as I want to know what happens next but I guess it's a sign of a good story if it leaves you wanting more
