 Friend turns to foe,
Light fades to darkness,
but a new Fire is burning in the night.

Aska, Tjalling, Sytse, Enna, and Royce have fallen into the hands of Mayor Edison. The corrupt leader of Brandaris knows what they have done, but what he doesn't know is what motivated them. In a desperate attempt to regain power over the island, he uses the five rebels as bargaining chips to force the Skelta to reveal who is part of the Skylger resistance. Anglian girl Melinda and Skylger girl Dani team up to free their friends from prison, but their task won't be an easy one.

Meanwhile, some of the Sirens from the deep visit the indigenous Skylgers to help them to reclaim what was once theirs. And when Tesla and his assistant set sail for the island of Skylge to come to the people's aid as well, all bets are off. Edison will not give up his family's position of power without a fight, and his struggle will involve Anglians, Skylgers, and Sirens alike.

The War of Currents is about to be fought, and nothing will ever be the same again.
Fire of Fryslan by Jen Minkman

Fire of Fryslan (Tales of Skylge, #3)The truth behind St. Brandon’s Fire, once thought to be a saving grace, has been revealed. The rebellion grows and two girls join the cause wholehearted, both for their own reasons and their voices will be heard. The true evil has been uncovered, but not unmasked and lives hang in the balance for many of these brave rebels. Will their lives be forfeit by a vile and power hungry politician or will the people and and the sirens finally teardown the forced walls of mistrust and fear? Is it possible to end decades of death and unite for truth?

Welcome to the last in Jen Minkman’s powerful and dramatic Tales of Skylge Trilogy a she pummels us once again with emotion, strife and the desperation that fuels each and every page. Fire of Fryslan is a bold finale that closes out this dystopian trilogy, told from two POVs that are powered by guilt, longing and unrequited love as two races fight for the freedom to live untethered to the powers and deception of evil. Again, Ms. Minkman piles on the dark drama, and raw power of her words and again she brings home another tale not soon to be forgotten. Heroes may die, but their strength and sacrifice will live on, thanks to Jen Minkman’s riveting and bold style and her ability to haunt your thoughts with her world, filled with a twist on real social issues as well as original fantasy and wonderful writing!

I received this copy from Jen Minkman in exchange for my honest review.
