About this ebook

The incredible conclusion to the Empirium Trilogy that started with the instant New York Times bestsellers Furyborn and Kingsbane! This series is perfect for those looking for books for teen girls and is also one of the best fantasy series for adults and teens!

Two queens, separated by a thousand years must face their ultimate destinies.

Queen Rielle, pushed away from everything she loves, turns to Corien and his promises of glory. Meanwhile, whispers from the empirium slowly drive her mad, urging her to open the Gate. Separated from Audric and Ludivine, she embraces the role of Blood Queen and her place by Corien's side, determined to become the monster the world believes her to be.

In the future, Eliana arrives in the Empire's capital as a broken shell of herself. Betrayed and abandoned, she fights to keep her power at bay—and away from Corien, who will stop at nothing to travel back in time to Rielle, even if that means destroying her daughter.

But when the mysterious Prophet reveals themselves at last, everything changes, giving Rielle and Eliana a second chance for salvation—or the destruction their world has been dreading.

An epic fantasy with female protagonist, the Empirium Trilogy has captured the hearts of many and Lightbringer concludes this beloved teen fantasy series.

A thrilling conclusion to a great trilogy! While I’m sad it’s over, the ending was very satisfying. I may even have read the last few chapters a couple of times over, admiring how wonderfully they were written. Highly recommend this book 😊😊

The entire trilogy has been the best fantasy series I have ever read, and the conclusion was so unexpected, and so incredible.

Third-party review
Lightbringer by Claire Legrand is the final book in the Empirium Trilogy. I'll say little, as it's the final book and I do not like spoilers. I had to re-read books one and two because it has been so ...
