Season End by Jacqueline T. Johnson is the fifth novel in the Sons of Meir series. Although I have not read the previous novels in the series, I had no issues in catching up with the characters and becoming invested in the story. With a fast-paced plot and a deep relationship between Erich and Nash, the novel had me riveted and wanting more. The characters seemed real with emotions and feelings that made them come alive in my mind.
When the Queen of Meir is kidnapped, Erich takes it upon himself to find her. He enlists the help of Nash, his long time friend, and his son, Malak. While the two friends go on to find the Queen, Malak is sent to secretly infiltrate the army of his father’s old enemy. While these sons of Meir are trying to find the Queen, the other sons of Meir are embarking on their own journeys that may break or make Meir. There are powerful forces against them that are waiting for them to make one mistake. Can Erich and Nash find the Queen in time? Is she really gone? Or is this a ploy to defeat Meir?
Season End is one of the best fantasy thrillers I have ever read. I loved how the novel maintained a steady pace and let the story unfold on its own. Jacqueline T. Johnson handled the story really well and kept the mystery alive. I definitely did not anticipate the ending and I was not expecting to become this invested in the story. The imagery was very vivid and I was able to imagine everything and hear the characters' voices in mind. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
