Battles, revolution, and romance collide in Southern Sun, Northern Star, the conclusion to Joanna Hathaway's stunning, World Wars-inspired fantasy series.
Reeling from the tragedy that beset her family, Princess Aurelia has joined the resistance in Havenspur, spying on the Northern leaders who were once her allies and determined to stop her uncle’s machinations for war. Meanwhile, her beloved pilot Athan leads his squadron into battle as the Safire wage a losing war abroad and combat growing unrest back home.
When Athan is sent on leave to Havenspur following the death of a comrade, the pair reunite and rekindle their romance until Aurelia uncovers one of Athan’s secrets, a secret that could save countless lives. But exposing it to the right people will cost her Athan's trust, and this time, their shared memories of love might not be enough to stop the fateful path of destruction that threatens all they’ve fought to defend.
As history unfolds around them, every move they make drives them one step closer to either recreating their parents’ shadowed past or redeeming the alliance that could bring peace.
The breathtaking finale to a legendary series. Part war drama, part romance, Southern Sun, Northern Star is the epic conclusion to the Glass Alliance series.

Review

A 3 book epic series covers the story of a pilot and a princess who go through hell to make their world a better place and come together in the end. A unique love interest a fighter pilot that falls in love with a princess. If you are looking for a story that gets all wrapped up with a pretty red bow, you won’t find it here in a world in the aftermath of war. It does leave us with some bittersweet hope that all the strife wasn’t in vain. This series offers it all a star-crossed romance between two impossible character backgrounds, political battle, and fantastic world-building. From start to finish, a beautifully written series, and it’s a must-read for historical fantasy readers. 

History of two families of two worlds. Intricate stubborn, and scared shadow and sun alike. Check out my review of Southern Sun, Northern star by @hathawayjojo Click To Tweet
