Battle for Cymmera by Dani-Lyn Alexander
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Dani-Lyn Alexander’s BATTLE FOR CYMMERA is a wonderful conclusion to the Kingdom of Cymmera series. Ryleigh Donnovan and Jackson Maynard are concentrating on rebuilding Cymmera when they get news of Chayce Maynard’s whereabouts. Chayce having been found guilty of treason needs to be caught and executed. Meanwhile, while Jackson is pursuing his brother, Cymmera is under attack. This contemporary fantasy is suitable for young adults.
Dani-Lyn Alexander did a great job with her character development; especially Ryleigh, Jackson, Mia, and Noah who have grown tremendously since the first book. Ryleigh is a good Queen. She handles pressure well and cares about her people. I respect that she insists on fighting beside her people. Jackson has made an impressive King. He was betrayed by his brother and knows that there are other traitors among them. He needs to be rational when making decisions. He loves Ryleigh and struggles with his emotions when he thinks he lost her. Mia has been given a lot of responsibility in this story. Ryleigh has a difficult time not treating her like a child anymore. I enjoyed how Noah’s relationship with both Ryleigh and Jackson has transformed. Jackson knows Noah still loves Ryleigh. However, he trusts Noah and with both of their lives.
I like Max. Yes, wolves are my favorite animal, so I’m a little bias, but he is a wonderful companion to Ryleigh.
The plot was well laid out. Elijah and Mia have knowledge of a possible future that they cannot share with anyone. Elijah attempts to change the future he foresaw. We discovered some things about Payton. Cymmera makes some interesting alliances. Chayce and Thaddeus are lethal adversaries. BATTLE FOR CYMMERA was full of non stop action and had interesting twists. It had a good resolution and felt complete. The Kingdom of Cymmera would make an excellent movie or television series. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
