    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 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

    What an amazing end to a fantastic trilogy. This book took me through every single emotion. I was completely thrown by the villain of this story but I thought back through and found out that it all made sense in the end.

    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 is such a wholesome middle grade series with a good message, fun characters, and neat use of magic. I think I'll try to reread the trilogy together next winter.

    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.

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.

    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.

Fave scenes: Rayna’s fruit tart, the ‘baby birds’, talking to the major, Ferdie & Sakaria’s near mishap and the mirrow meeting.

    If you're expecting a bunch of action scenes, nope. I liked how it was written though. And finally had closure with Drifa. It was definitely entertaining.

This story was definitely and clearly written in two halves. For the first half of the book we spend all of our time with the now combined and large group of wolf, dragon and human students who have gathered together in Cloudhaven. We follow them as they start to become closer and put aside their differences and learned animosity to explore the secrets behind Cloudhaven and explore and aid the Holberd refugee camp and try and figure out how to prevent all out conflict between humans, wolves and dragons. While I enjoyed this section of the book, it basically didn't advance the overall plot whatsoever and didn't resolve any of the ongoing plot points from the first two books. For an already short book (My book only has 251 pages no matter what GoodReads page count says) having half of it devoted to basically nothing truly important in the grand scheme of things was a big problem. The second half of the book ended up being all about finalizing their big plan to bring peace to Vallen and all of the artifact gathering, traveling around Vallen and meeting plus conversing with all of the important characters and leaders of the various groups that come with it. This is also the section where we finally clear up all of the mystery surrounding Anders' and Reyna's parents, Felix and Drifa and also what happened to Sigrid after the second battle of Holberd. Unfortunately what should have been a very touching and meaningful moment felt extremely rushed and glossed over which was really disappointing after the author had built up their eventual reunion with Drifa from book one. Finally, I really did not like the method Anders used to bring together all 3 sides to try and create peace between them. It just seemed highly unrealistic and unlikely to succeed to me so I couldn't even find very much satisfaction with the conclusion of the series. The only saving grace of this story for me personally was how much I enjoyed the interactions of the group at Cloudhaven along with the exploration they did and the mysteries that they both succeeded at solving and were attempting to solve. As much as it didn't progress the plot at all I have grown to love the interactions and the friendships that grew between all of the different students

Instead of preventing more bloodshed, the battle has caused more tension than ever. Survivor camps have sprung up outside Holbard – the Ice Wolves closing ranks and preparing for battle, and the humans in shock, cold, hungry and begging their Mayor to do something. Anders and friends have holed up in a giant entranceway in Cloudhaven, a forbidden stronghold wrapped in magic, ancient runes and traps. It’s only when they find a link to the past Cloudhaven occupants that they can move any further inside. They find what they need, but something dangerous from within finds them! The link (through their dreams) not only leads them to answers needed, they meet someone special, giving Anders the confidence he needs. He has to bring the leaders together. After living with his growing group of friends, he knows that Dragon, Wolf and Human can live peaceably and work together for a better future. His biggest challenge yet is to trick the leaders into facing one another – without more bloodshed. Tears will be shed along the way, as powerplays and madness are revealed and lives lost. Tension is high in this final part of the Elementals trilogy. Anders must dig deep to finally bring the age-old hatred and prejudice between Dragon, Human and Wolf to an end. Courage, family, brave friends and their support give Anders the answers and tools he needs to attempt an almost impossible task. Great series by an award wining and talented author who nails it every time! Author – Amie Kaufman Age – 9+

    Excellent conclusion to the series with a really great message for this day and age.

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)]

    This book starts off similarly to Scorch Dragons, and features many of the issues I had with it, particularly the ones pertaining to characters and their blandness. Thankfully, the story begins picking up halfway through, and as loose ends are tied off, it becomes relatively exciting. However, it still lacked any of the cathartic moments that made me enjoy Ice Wolves so much. The most exciting scene still had me very uninvested in what was going on, due to the unlikable, boring characters.

Also, I found the ending to occur *way* too easily - it feels pretty anticlimactic as a result. This plays into my complaint about Anders never really struggling anymore after the first book. This wouldn’t be much of a problem if he affected others in interesting ways (e.g. a flat character arc), but none of the characters develop in meaningful or interesting ways. The characters feel very sloppily handled. Overall, it’s better then its predecessor, but not by that much.

    Battle Born tied everything together from the series in a nice way. Unfortunately, it didn’t quite have the excitement or depth I hoped for. I do think it’s difficult at the end of a series to give every person and subject the time it needs but I was mostly satisfied. I still really liked the characters we actually got to know. The world is still amazing, and I’m REALLY hoping she writes more in it. The other elementals are there and leave the door open for some cool stories.

    I love when a series ends well! This is the third and final book in the Elementals series and it did not disappoint. Friendship and quests, sentient strongholds and spooky bots, a race against time and an awesomely satisfying character arc (don't you love those?). This is also a great book for highlighting the importance of listening to other points of view and looking past stereotypes - I am a sucker for a story where strength of mind and character can win the day.

    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 love these young wolves and dragons. Still hard to match the way I felt about the sibling depth of the fist book, but a solid roundout to the trilogy. (view spoiler)[ I love the plotline around the humans making sparks in their fires so it looks like dragonfire. Deceit! And that they found their mom, Drifa, and got to interact with her before she died. Yay, wolves and dragons realizing that they do better together than apart.

    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.

    This book was a little underwhelming. It was only 166 pages (on my kindle), so it was really short, and it felt like everything was just kind of surface-level. I enjoyed the first two books, but I was hoping for a lot more from this one.
