    4 stars You can read all of my reviews at Nerd Girl Loves Books. This is a satisfying last book in a great fantasy series. Jasminda and Kyara face their final showdown with the True Father, who remains determined to conquer Elsira. Recently escaped from the palace dungeons, and potentially getting help from his twin sister The Goddess Awoken, the True Father has a new army of wraiths that can't be killed and can only be stopped by Nethersong and the help of Earthsingers. Like Elsira needed any more 4 stars You can read all of my reviews at Nerd Girl Loves Books. This is a satisfying last book in a great fantasy series. Jasminda and Kyara face their final showdown with the True Father, who remains determined to conquer Elsira. Recently escaped from the palace dungeons, and potentially getting help from his twin sister The Goddess Awoken, the True Father has a new army of wraiths that can't be killed and can only be stopped by Nethersong and the help of Earthsingers. Like Elsira needed any more problems. Jasminda's husband is on a mission to garner new allies and she is keeping a tenuous hold on her crown. The civil unrest between Elsirians and the Lagrimar refugees attempting to settle in Elsira is heating up. Jasminda must figure out a way to keep Elsira from splintering apart in civil war and fight the True Father for the future of the entire kingdom. With the help of Kyara, and a young sisterhood novitiate Zeli, they may find a way to help the people of Elsira and Lagrimar, as well as defeat the True Father, for good. This book is fast-paced and full of action. I was a little disappointed that Jasminda's husband was basically absent for 98% of the book. I enjoyed reading about him in the first book. Kyara and a young Lagrimar girl join the Cave Folk again to learn how to harness and control their power. This part of the book seemed to slow the story down and make it drag a bit. I also grew impatient with all of the inner turmoil in Kyara, as well as all of her family drama. Again, it seemed to slow the story down and could have been abbreviated to sustain momentum. I get it that Kyara needed to heal and feel worthy of having a happy life, but get on with it already! But these were minor annoyances that didn't affect my overall enjoyment of the book. Overall, this was an entertaining, fun book series to read that I recommend you pick up. I look forward to reading more books from this author. I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley and St. Martin's Press. All opinions are my own.

    ***Received an arc through NetGalley*** A climactic, heartwarming finale! While occasionally this multi-voice narrative meant we didn't spend long with previous main characters, it was worth it to be able to revisit so many favorites from past books. Overall, a deeply satisfying conclusion to this romantic fantasy quartet, highly recommended for fans of C.L. Polk and Katherine Arden. ***Received an arc through NetGalley*** A climactic, heartwarming finale!

    Review: It took me a while to remember what happened in the previous book when I started this one, my reading year last year was terrible. I had several months where I barely read at all, let alone remember what I read any length of time after finishing a book. So I didn't remember who half these characters were for most of the book, thus leaving me very confused. I probably just need to do a re-read of the whole series back to back. Once I did remember what the heck had happened in the prev Review: It took me a while to remember what happened in the previous book when I started this one, my reading year last year was terrible. I had several months where I barely read at all, let alone remember what I read any length of time after finishing a book. So I didn't remember who half these characters were for most of the book, thus leaving me very confused. I probably just need to do a re-read of the whole series back to back. Once I did remember what the heck had happened in the previous book, I was able to catch up with what was going on in this book. This book picks up very shortly after the end of the previous book and throws us right back into the action. All the characters are more spread out, and it follows more of them rather than the previous set up in the series of just following a couple at a time. I think that also lent to some of the confusion on my part. I wasn't exactly sure who was supposed to be the main focus of this book. The world is in a bit of chaos, with people unwilling to change wanting to adhere to the old ways. People are still scared and wary of magic, even though their new Queen is one of the few who can wield it. This book just felt like it had less focus compared to the rest of the series. My love for the writing and the characters in their respective books is what kept me engaged with this book. I think if I had remembered more from the rest of the series I would have had a more enjoyable reading experience.

    Queen Jasminda is trying to integrate the Langrimari refugees into Elsira, but there is much unrest. It doesn't help that the True Father is still trying to attack, using shadows that can't be harmed by anything but Nethersong. Kyara isn't the only Nethersinger, but they're woefully unprepared for the onslaught. In addition, sister novitiate Zeli is hoping to unlock a secret to repairing stolen Songs that just might remake the nations. Requiem of Silence is the fourth book in the Earthsinger Chro Queen Jasminda is trying to integrate the Langrimari refugees into Elsira, but there is much unrest. It doesn't help that the True Father is still trying to attack, using shadows that can't be harmed by anything but Nethersong. Kyara isn't the only Nethersinger, but they're woefully unprepared for the onslaught. In addition, sister novitiate Zeli is hoping to unlock a secret to repairing stolen Songs that just might remake the nations. Requiem of Silence is the fourth book in the Earthsinger Chronicles and does absolutely rely on you reading the prior ones. Elsira is troubled by politics and racial divides, which affects Jasminda on a personal level. Her brothers, who look Elsiran, are welcomed more but still feel the disconnect that comes from being biracial and not feeling a part of either culture. Jasminda isn't really getting help from Oola and is overwhelmed by the politics in the country. I feel bad for Kyara, who had endured so much trauma and has so much distrust for those who manipulate her into training. She receives a lot of information about a past she can't remember, as well as how to manipulate her Song. At the same time, Zeli is able to travel and find new information not because she's a fabulous scholar, but because she's kind and has good intentions to save the different kingdoms. There is a lot of political concern within and around Elsira, and the appearance of wraiths intent on destroying the people ups the ante for everyone involved. As the final volume of the Earthsinger Chronicles, it did tie up storylines and show what their futures will be even if it doesn't happen on the page per se. I would've been happy to read dozens of more books in this series, as there is rebuilding to do and future generations to care for. As it is, this is a wonderful and complete series of books, and a great one to recommend for others.

    I received an ARC from the publisher via NetGalley and am voluntarily posting a review. All opinions are my own. Requiem of Silence is the conclusion to L. Penelope’s Earthsinger Chronicles, and it’s definitely an epic one. We once again meet some new characters, while also following some old friends again once last time.

All opinions are my own. Requiem of Silence is the conclusion to L. Penelope’s Earthsinger Chronicles, and it’s definitely an epic one. We once again meet some new characters, while also following some old friends again once last time. I do think it would help if I had read the previous books to refresh my memory, as this book kind of throws you into the action, leaving you to try to recollect what happened in the prior books. However, I did eventually come to grips with the tense political situation the characters are in, conveyed through context clues in the text. I love how this book has continued to show Jasminda and Jack continuing their work to heal the discord in Elsira. Alongside the continuation of their story arc, I enjoyed meeting the new characters and what they added to the story. Kyara particularly stood out to me, due to the trauma she’s dealt with. And I really liked that Zeli is proof that skill is not the only thing that can make a fantasy protagonist compelling, but kindness and good intentions can be just as important. Generally, this book is a satisfying conclusion to the series, resolving issues in a way that provides closure, while still leaving things open about the future. If you enjoyed the prior installments, you won’t be disappointed with this one.

    Requiem of Silence (Earthsinger Chronicles #4) by L. Penelope A very detailed and well thought out universe. This book shows the struggle in history of this new ideological world that has had a devastating overwhelming battle between gods. the connection of the people and their gods is made through song, blood, and death. the book shows how having power makes people corrupts. The gods were men, and women, they found a way not to die through the use of magic promoted by song, blood, and sacrifice. Requiem of Silence (Earthsinger Chronicles #4) by L.

The gods were men, and women, they found a way not to die through the use of magic promoted by song, blood, and sacrifice. Very thought provoking story that shows how perceptions can divide and separate people. The world is divided arbitrarily because of perceptions of the needs of the Gods, or those magicians that could not die but affect the world long after they should have passed on.

    I have liked all the books of this series and have been looking forward to this one because I have so many questions. This series finale answered many of those questions and other things settled into a plausible scenario. I must say that I loved King Pia. She was fantastic! I appreciated Zann Biddel's & Queen Jasminda's goodbye. Some shockers were Yellis, OOlia, Mooriah, Fennix , and the history there....with some holes.

One thing that bothered me was the Author's lack of knowledge between supine and prone. If you are lying prone you are chest, abdomen, and face down. If you are looking up you are supine. It is impossible to look up at the stars in a prone position.

    Title: Requiem of Silence Author: L. Penelope Genre: Fantasy Rating: 4.5 out of 5 I’ve really enjoyed the Earthsea Chronicles series, and I’m sad to see it end. I love how all the cultures are blended together and explore their differences as well as their commonalities. The characters and settings are vibrant and detailed, and the storyline has been wonderfully explored in-depth, making this a series I highly recommend.

    I loved it. I loved the whole series. I thought it was wrapped up nicely. It's also important to read the novellas in between. Not required, but definitely makes it more enjoyable. I'm glad I happened on this series when the pandemic hit. I loved it. I loved the whole series. I thought it was wrapped up nicely. It's also important to read the novellas in between.
