A deadly disease has spread through the Blooming Courts of Tuatha. The louloudi are meant to flourish for a thousand years before they return to the Earth. Death has been a distant foe for so long, no one spares it any thought. Until now. As sickness sweeps through the kingdom, with the cure always just out of reach, the courts have never been filled with so many blossoms A deadly disease has spread through the Blooming Courts of Tuatha. The louloudi are meant to flourish for a thousand years before they return to the Earth. Death has been a distant foe for so long, no one spares it any thought. Until now. As sickness sweeps through the kingdom, with the cure always just out of reach, the courts have never been filled with so many blossoms. Even in death, they breathe life. Ila Slystina has been raised in the confines of the Orchidasi Kingdom, wanting for nothing, hidden away like some sparkling treasure, but she dreams of so much more. When she’s caught returning from a forbidden trip, her mother, the Queen, punishes her the only way she sees fit. Ila is sent on her season far earlier than she should be. Now, she’s being paraded through the twelve courts like a prized cow and she wants nothing more than to escape. But along the way, she just might get more than what she bargained for. After all, the courts aren’t the only things that must bloom . . .

    As expected, I loved this book even more than the previous ones and I am scared to think how much I’m going to love the next book and how much I’ll dread finishing the last book and saying goodbye to the characters and this beautiful world. This is one of the best series I have ever read, and I am exploding with praise and can’t find the words, all at the same time. Ila is continuing with her season and growing as a person and as a future ruler.

This is one of the best series I have ever read, and I am exploding with praise and can’t find the words, all at the same time. Ila is continuing with her season and growing as a person and as a future ruler. Her compassion is limitless, as is the amount of love she can give to those who deserve it. However, her naivete does get her in trouble at times. But that is mostly due to the pureness of her heart, and the desire to see only the good in those around her. Fortunately for her, Olis is always watching her back. And the big Brute is seriously growing on me. Unfortunately, not everything is happy and colourful in life, and Ila learns this the hard way. Some of the experiences change her, however, nothing takes away her compassion and love for life and her people. There is sadness and there is happiness in this book, perhaps more than in the previous two. Probably because this is the first time that Ila is faced with the full extent of the devastation caused by the illness. I cried a lot, I’m not going to lie, but I also smiled a lot and laughed at times. It is also interesting to follow the journey of Ila’s human mates and I can’t help but wonder about their part in this story. It is a mystery I can’t wait to uncover. As I already mentioned, I love the series more and more with each book and I am dying to find out what happens next, and at the same time I don’t want it to end. I love this series with all my heart. Books need to be read in order: Resurrect: A High Fantasy Reverse Harem (The Blooming Courts Book 1), Sprout: A High Fantasy Reverse Harem (The Blooming Courts Book 2), Flourish: A High Fantasy Reverse Harem (The Blooming Courts Book 3), Emerge: A High Fantasy Reverse Harem (The Blooming Courts Book 4), Blossom: A High Fantasy Reverse Harem (The Blooming Courts Book 5).

    Ok so, if you're reading this review you've probably already read book one and two and if you haven't you need to go do that RIGHT NOW! Did you do it? Did you read them? Are you back?

Did you do it? Did you read them? Are you back? Ok now lets talk about Flourish; Ila is still on her forced season but being forced to leave home was kind of a blessing in disguise for her. She gets away from her crazy mother, meets new people *this is me wiggling my eyebrows up and down if you know what I mean* and is able to finally see the world as it really is. She always knew about pain but she didn't realize how much suffering there was. In this book Ila experiencing heartache and atrocities that she'd never expected to happen. On this journey Ila receives so much love, understanding and welcoming that she never hope to get but at the same time she seems to be losing parts of her life that she never wanted to lose. She meets some very very interesting people on her way (and i'm hoping one in particular shows up again).

    This installment of The Blooming Courts was so good! The Hanasaki disease ravaging the louloudi is heartbreaking and knowing that 2 characters I especially like are suffering from it in this book completely broke my heart. I hope that at least one of them gets saved if not both because I just don't think I can take it and I believe these losses would break Ila.

Ila has had to grow up in many ways and she learns a few hard lessons in this book but she remains good at her core and is the queen her people truly need. As in the others she gets a new addition to her true mates, unaware that her humans are in danger. I'm curious to see what will happen once she realizes her humans need her and just how they came to be in trouble. I'm enjoying this series immensely. It makes me smile and root for certain characters but it's also emotional and beautiful.

    This is shaping up to be my all time favorite series ever!!! This third book broke my heart. I found myself in tears on several occasions. The emotion the authors put into the writing of the Tuatha princess and her companions is beyond anything I've ever read. It wasn't all sad though. There is so much snark and laughter as well that it reminds me of a roller coaster. I LOVE Rollercoasters and I loved this book. I absolutely cannot wait for the next book in the series.

    First, I feel like I should mention that I absolutely love the blooming courts series. Kendra and Poppy have built such a beautiful world full of unique characters that you can’t help but fall in love with. This particular installment was heartbreaking. I found myself in tears at several different points during the book. Ila is the light in a world of darkness but she is put through so much heartache. I only hope that by the end of the series she gets the happy ending she deserves. The cliffhang First, I feel like I should mention that I absolutely love the blooming courts series.

    Every book in this series has teetered between 4 and 5 stars for me, but since I have INHALED books 1-3 in two days… I feel like I’m just being a picky a-hole. The only reason why I am (begrudgingly) coming up for air to review this book is because the next one isn’t out yet. So five big ‘ole, well deserved stars from me babe.

The only reason why I am (begrudgingly) coming up for air to review this book is because the next one isn’t out yet. So five big ‘ole, well deserved stars from me babe. While some aspects of the books have been repetitive (i.e. “Your not what I expected you to be like”) it isn’t enough to truly annoy me and at least Ila recognizes how repetitive it is. Also. This book made me CRY. I have not cried from reading a book in…. I can’t even tell you when the last time was. And I don’t want to spoil it, but if (or apparently - when) this illness takes a certain character… I will riot. Do you hear me? RIOT. Also… this sloooooow burn between Olis and Ila…. I swear to goodness gracious that better end in an HEA. This book has me feeling all. the. feels. Like the whole range of human emotion. And this cliff hanger has my body physically tensed in anxiety. But - while this cliffhanger makes me want the next book in my hand immediately, I’m grateful I only have to wait a month. Snaps to the authors for having the books staggered and ready to go out soon. When I have to wait a year for another book, I tend to forget about the series or lose interest. Anyways, sorry for a pretty vague/not-so-detailed review. I gobbled these up so fast I can't really tease apart the three books to review each book individually. It's just one awesome blur. So, if you haven't started this series yet - DO IT.

    well just like always these ladies nailed it! This this the third installment of the series The Blooming Courts, and we are continuing our trip with Ila, Cerulea, Olis and the rambunctious Queenie. We get to know more of our favorite characters as they travel the different kingdoms during Ila's court. With each court we get to learn so much more about Tuatha and the many different types of people and homes. The world building within these stories is amazing, as you read you start to feel you are well just like always these ladies nailed it!

The world building within these stories is amazing, as you read you start to feel you are there and see the wonder around and the people around. Character growth is another thing that amazes me, you won't get the same people who you may see a little difference in, not here every book, every kingdom, every situation these characters encounter they all learn/grown from it. Your emotions will be in different places during this and its in a good exciting keep you hooked way. It leaves you on a hook at the end, about to fall out your seat with wanting to know what's going to happen. Extremely excited to get the next book once its out to see/hope and pray it goes how I hope.

    This book finds Ila on her way to Sollum, a land full of conniving, cutthroat louloudum and dangerous, poisonous plants and creatures. It’s a brutal and eventful trip for all. This book is a pivotal book for the series. A transition of sorts. There’s a lot going on in this book that continues the story so far and paves the way for the next two books.

New characters are introduced, we learn more about some of the old characters with new insights and personality. There’s a couple major developments that I can’t wait to see how they play out. This was a gut-wrenching book for me. One that has continued to stick with me several days after finishing. I want to start at the beginning again while I wait for the next installment. These are characters living in a world that stays with you. Definitely a must read series.

    Part 3 In movies the second movie is okay the third has mostly lost all charm, but in books this just isnt true, this third book is mind-blowing. Not with questions but with the growth of our Mischief Princess, the heartbreak that comes along in this book and all the love. So much love its killing literally. These authors have broken my heart with this one and I hope that they at least save one if not all. The world that has been build is amazingly colorful and full small details.

    Wow, this book in the series definitely has some feels and more excitement! As Ila continues her season she visit some more courts. Making new friends and finding some not so nice individuals as well. I still find each courts design fascinating in this world! We also watch Ila grow more with each court she visits as she gains a perspective on life she never had before. Definitely excited for the next book for sure!

    Wow, is the only way to start this, this is the third, and let me tell you, it just keeps getting better. Be ready for this journey, you will laugh and cry. Don't worry there is lots of action, and adventure, plus this baby packs the heat. It should come with a warning, " Panties may combust. " This is well written, great characters, and a beautiful, but deadly world. Can't wait to see whats next.

    This book like the prior two kept me enthralled all the way through. Kendra and Poppy do an amazing job pulling you into the world of the Blooming Courts and making all the characters personable. So loving this entire series and cannot wait for more! Though be prepared to shed some tears in this one.

    I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review. I couldn't put the book down. Ila continues to amaze me with the young woman, queen to be, she is becoming. This book - so many emotions. I was happy, angry, I cried - yes, I really cried, held my breath and fell in love with yet another king.

    There is something seductive about this series, even if it is quite confusing at times. Dicot, Monocot and the like - there is little explanation given and a whole lot of catching up for the reader, but its worth it. Ila is growing by leaps and bounds, and WE finally get to know what she is in this installment, even if just what that is, is a bit unclear. Overall, interesting story and fairly well done. It hasn't blown me away, but it does linger in the mind. There is something seductive about this series, even if it is quite confusing at times.

    Grab your tissues This books starts on the journey to Sollum. Right from the beginning it has moments that will make you tear up. We get to see two new kingdoms and plenty new animals. This and what Ila is experiencing is changing her. Through her changes some may not like what they see and those closest tool her have to deal with their own issues while protecting their queen

    Keeps getting better The character growth and plot really kicked up with this 3rd book, and there are now multiple levels, which keeps things from getting monotonous. The world building is still on point, but this is the first story that's truly been a 5 star read for me. Books 1 & 2 fell a bit flat on plot development but got a bonus star for being so unique.
