    So ends the Elementals trilogy and it was satisfying and much fun. Amie Kaufman created such a whimsical and rich world that focuses the most on family and togetherness. Battle Born did a great job wrapping up everything while still enriching us, the reader, with more to learn and see. One of the best aspects of this series has always been the characters and this finale was no different. Every character had a purpose, a drive, a reason to help. It was so heart warming to watch this found family So ends the Elementals trilogy and it was satisfying and much fun.

One of the best aspects of this series has always been the characters and this finale was no different. Every character had a purpose, a drive, a reason to help. It was so heart warming to watch this found family take on so much together. I will say I was still left wanting a little more from this world. It seems so massive and we only just scraped the surface, so I really hope we get to discover more in the future. The Elementals was Amie's first venture as a solo author and she executed it wonderfully. Here is hoping we get more stories from Amie, just Amie. That's not saying I don't want more of her collaborations with other authors because I do. Ice Wolves - 4/5 Scorch Dragons - 4/5 Battle Born - 4/5 Elementals Trilogy - 12/15

    I was really satisfied with the conclusion of this story. I love the twins and thought the uniting of characters in the last book in the trilogy worked really well. Good enjoyable read. 4 stars.

    This book is a satisfying conclusion to the Elementals trilogy. After the destructive events of the previous book, all the children are in shock about the damage they inadvertently inflicted, tired and hopeless about what to do next. They have managed to escape to Cloudhaven, the early home of the dragons which is a magical entity in itself, which initially permits only Reyna and Anders to properly enter the premises.

After the destructive events of the previous book, all the children are in shock about the damage they inadvertently inflicted, tired and hopeless about what to do next. They have managed to escape to Cloudhaven, the early home of the dragons which is a magical entity in itself, which initially permits only Reyna and Anders to properly enter the premises. After taking some time to rest and take stock, they are back in the game, looking for allies, searching for their parents, attempting to understand Cloudhaven and its workings, trying to find a means to unite humans, wolves and dragons. It's an action-packed race to the finish with time being of the utmost essence. The mixed band of Elementals split up into smaller units to do the various tasks that need to be accomplished, picking up some human allies along the way. There is some suspicion as to who was behind the supposed dragon fire, and the reveal as to who is behind the entire escalation of hostility between wolves and dragons is not surprising, but it's very saddening. The final confrontation scene is very well done, and I found the artefacts used - one in particular - to be quite interesting. The series gives a very good message about different communities working together and learning to deal with each others' differences.

    This was a satisfying conclusion to a charming middle grade fantasy series about diversity and inclusion. It had a really heartwarming message and I enjoyed seeing the kids solving puzzles, going on adventures, bringing people together to talk through their problems. I do wish it had been 50-100 pages longer, so we could learn more about artifacts and to let the resolution sit and simmer a while longer. (In general I wish we'd got more info about the artifacts and magic system!) This series read This was a satisfying conclusion to a charming middle grade fantasy series about diversity and inclusion.

(In general I wish we'd got more info about the artifacts and magic system!) This series reads at the younger end of the middle grade spectrum, so would be perfect for those 8-10 year old fantasy readers in your life!

    The battle between the dragons and the wolves destroyed the city of Holbard driving all the human refugees out into the countryside to survive with what little they could carry. The dragons have retreated to the eyrie, the wolves have set up their own military camp up the river while Rayna and Anders little band are holed up in Cloudhaven.

Meanwhile on their secret forays to the ruins of Holbard and the refugee camps, the gang keep finding more of their friends and other lost children to bring back to the sanctuary until the is more than 50 of them. Since the secrets of Cloudhaven are slowly being revealed, the next step toward peace is to try and get the human, wolf and dragon leaders to talk to each other. Wish they’d been about more about the wonders of Cloudhaven. Maybe some future stories from there. Fave scenes: Rayna’s fruit tart, the ‘baby birds’, talking to the major, Ferdie & Sakaria’s near mishap and the mirrow meeting.

    Excellent conclusion to the series with a really great message for this day and age. I really enjoyed this trilogy for its fun world-building (and I'm a sucker for animal transformation powers and wolves, what can I say), and though it wasn't ground-breaking, it was fun and enjoyable to read. Battle Born has the group of kids trying to figure out a way to bring the humans, wolves, and dragons together and there's a really great message here about how the young can sometimes overcome the entrench Excellent conclusion to the series with a really great message for this day and age. I really enjoyed this trilogy for its fun world-building (and I'm a sucker for animal transformation powers and wolves, what can I say), and though it wasn't ground-breaking, it was fun and enjoyable to read. Battle Born has the group of kids trying to figure out a way to bring the humans, wolves, and dragons together and there's a really great message here about how the young can sometimes overcome the entrenched hatred of the older generations. It takes a while to really get going, and I thought the ending needed to be expanded upon way more than it was. It's satisfying, but just kind of superficial in the details and I have a lot of questions that weren't answered. Overall though, a very enjoyable middle-grade fantasy. (view spoiler)[I felt like the ending was just a little too easy. There aren't really many details about how life works in the new peaceful Vallen outside of the human/wolf/dragon school. What happened to Cloudhaven? Is it just abandoned again? Who is in charge in Holbard? Is there a multi-species council? Do dragons live in Holbard now? Do wolves live in Drekhelm? Lots of details missing from the ending and it felt abrupt. I would love a sequel showing the difficulties that come with massive social order changes and incorporating more of the thunder lions and stone bears that are briefly mentioned. (hide spoiler)]

    *sniff* it’s fine, I’m only happy crying. Battle Born was exactly what I wanted from the final book in the trilogy, focused on learning to listen and understand each other, and treasure the things that make us different. I may be over 20 years older than the intended audience (I will never ever ever stop reading children’s and YA books!) but I’m so happy for the children who will get to read this series, and see themselves in it. Even down to the smallest details, from the dragon who needs a whee *sniff* it’s fine, I’m only happy crying.

Even down to the smallest details, from the dragon who needs a wheelchair in her human form to the queer, happily married wolves, thank you Amie. Also...Stone Bears!!!!!!

    Whoever said Amie is the nice one in the Kaufman/Kristoff writing duo never read Amie’s solo works. This was such a roller coaster of emotions for me (yes I know this is a middle grade book) and I am so emotionally attached to Anders. You can really see Anders character development from being shy and doesn’t really have confidence or self-worth in book one to a confident leader in the last book. 5/5

    I'm not sure why but I didn't enjoy this conclusion as much as I did the first two books in the series. Maybe I just wasn't in the right headspace to be reading this book but I forced myself to continue anyway instead of setting it aside and picking it up again later. The characters remain excellent I love how inclusive this book is for all types of characters.

    There were definitely parts where the pacing went by so quickly that my imagination couldn't catch up. Overall, a great read though.

    I love this book so much! I'm not going to say anything about it because I don't want to spoil this book but I would definitely recommend it if you love books with a lot of action!
