The breathless finale to the New York Times bestselling Rebel of the Sands series will have you on the edge of your seat until the dust from the final battle clears! When gunslinging Amani Al'Hiza escaped her dead-end town, she never imagined she'd join a revolution, let alone lead one. But after the bloodthirsty Sultan of Miraji imprisoned the Rebel Prince Ahmed in the mythical city of Eremot, she doesn't have a choice. Armed with only her revolver, her wits, and her untameable Demdji powers, Amani must rally her skeleton crew of rebels for a rescue mission through the unforgiving desert to a place that, according to maps, doesn't exist. As she watches those she loves most lay their lives on the line against ghouls and enemy soldiers, Amani questions whether she can be the leader they need or if she is leading them all to their deaths.… (mere)

This was EXCELLENT! I laughed, I cried, I suffered, I celebrated. What a good conclusion to the series! ( )

(This is basically a review of the whole series, FYI)

I think I was only disappointed in this because I wanted it to be my next super-love, fangirl series and it... wasn't. The excerpt I read I adored, but the rest of the series didn't quite live up to that promising start.

I liked Amani, I liked that she wasn't white, I liked that she wasn't a ~chosen one~ or even in love with a ~chosen one~. I liked that she was a desert person saving her desert people - there was no "outsider comes in to save the day", white saviour kind of trope.

There's some amazing scenes throughout the series, but the linking isn't great and it feels like the stitching shows through at times. This is Hamilton's first series, so that might get better if she writes more, but I wasn't convinced about her geography or military tactics. (Also, A for putting a map at the front of this book, F for not including major cities on it.)

Some things just don't stand up to closer thought - Amani's uncle is apparently a horse trader, but no one in Dustwalk can afford a horse and it's clearly stated that not many travellers pass through so... who is he selling horses to? The Gallan military? How is he feeding these horses, in the middle of the desert? Why do we never see anyone in the rest of the series actually riding a horse???

How did Imin manage to shapeshift into Ahmed when they were all chained in iron and unable to access their Demdji powers? How did the Sultan not notice his golden eyes, given the Sultan knew they were Demdji? Did he not revert back to his own face when he died?

Good, but not great.

The Rebel Prince will rise again. He will bring a new dawn. A new desert.

Obviously, you have to read the first two in the series to understand this one. After most of Amani's group of friend's was taken prisoner, the majority of this was about journeying and working to set them free. The focus on the magic of the world seemed to takeover a lot in the middle until the later second half came back around to fighting, defeating, and ending the war.

This tone had a ragged, tired at times, but still striving through the fight, which fit as the last book wrapping up a rebellion story. This really worked on portraying how wars started by powerful, more so affect the powerless and how even when you're fighting for right, wrong can be done. I liked how this in no way glorified war.

Some of the visuals the author provided through her writing, especially the ship sailing on sand scene, were incredible, very well done fantasy. The emotion was heightened at times but with Amani, I started to feel very drained.

Amani and Jin didn't get near enough time together for me; a big important talk between the two was completely off screen.

The ending went a little overly long and repetitive, some could easily have been edited out. However, the long out look at what our characters encounter was satisfying and a tad depressing as we see the same wars being fought over and over because of power greed. I can't say this ended on a very high note but I enjoyed the journey into this magical land the author created.

But he wondered if a boy from the sea and a girl from the desert could ever survive together. He feared that she might burn him alive or that he might drown her. Until finally he stopped fighting it and set himself on fire for her. ( )

Hero at the Fall was the most amazing series ending book! Every book in the Rebel of the Sands series just kept getting better and better. I knew I would like this book but I ended up loving it so much because it went so beyond all my expectations. I was basically sobbing uncontrollably towards the end of this book. The characters were amazing and there was magic, so much magic! Who does not love that?! I loved the growth of Amani’s character, especially in this book as she learned how to truly control her powers. There were also many reveals in this book and so many questions were answered, it was so satisfying!

There was much going against Amani and her group of rebels. She had already lost many people that she cared about and who had depended upon her that she carried a heavy heart. Even though she rebelled against the idea, she had been put in charge of the rebels because Prince Ahmed had been imprisoned and it was up to the rebels to get him out. This was Amani’s main focus because all she wanted to do was to hand the responsibility back to him. Although that may have been her driving force, over the course of her book Amani grew and her desires slowly changed and that drove this plot.

This story was filled with many twists and turns. There were situations that Amani encountered that were quite surprising. I was shocked by some of the plot twists and there was never a moment where the plot became stagnant. It was such a strong plot that kept my eyes glued to the pages. Over the series, I had become quite invested in all the characters and to read the sacrifices that were being made by these characters in this rebellion made this story quite emotional for me. It was such a rewarding reading experience!

What truly sealed this series as one of my favorites was the relationships that were built between the characters. Every relationship was meaningful and everyone mattered. I loved how deeply Amani cared for all her friends and how they in turned cared about each other. I can’t even start with how much I loved Amani and Jin’s relationship, that was truly one of the most beautiful relationships! Overall, Hero at the Fall was a remarkable work of fiction. I highly recommend that, if you haven’t already, you start this series, it is one that I can read and read again. It is truly an amazing series! ( )
