Book Review of Ragesong: Triumphant (Book #5) by J.R. Simmons
I have been waiting for this final book in the Ragesong series for a long time! I was so excited when J.R. Simmons finally emailed me asking me to review it! This is such a fun and unique series. I love the use of music, the characters, and how they can use the music together to accomplish more. Just wait until you read about how Jake, Sam, and Klyle learn to use the Trichord together. What? It’s pretty amazing, I must say! It’s too bad there isn’t a modern-day, actual version of the Trichord. Of course, I guess we couldn’t risk it falling into the wrong hands. I hope you enjoy my book review of Ragesong: Triumphant (Book #5) by J.R. Simmons.
Blurb (from goodreads.com):
The power of Ragesong.
All three unite in this epic conclusion to the thrilling Ragesong saga.
The Dread King Brael controls nearly all of Fermicia. Only an exiled king and three rogue territories remain free of his dark clutches. With nowhere left to run, King Klyle and his allies, the Dextori Freedom Fighters and the Riders of Southern Reach, engage Brael, his ruthless Elites, and an infinite army in Fermicia’s last stand.
Klyle’s last hope rests with Jake, Sam, and a mythical artifact that may save them all—if they can find it. As they journey into the snowy fields of the Untamed North, war threatens to engulf the land, and a savage enemy surrounds Jake and Sam on their quest.
Will Klyle and his fledgling army survive until Jake and Sam return? Will the legendary Trichord save Fermicia, or is the quest a death sentence for them all?”
My Book Review:
I have seriously enjoyed this series. I’m so sad it’s coming to an end. Jake, Sam, Klyle, Joraus, and Swyf, have become close friends over the years. I have enjoyed getting to know some new friends along the way as well. Shivarra, Ara, and Buvielio are some of my favorites. The characters are very well developed. They’re realistic and imperfect. They make good choices and poor choices, and learn from their experiences.
This book is also very well written. I like Mr. Simmons’ writing style because it’s easy to read, but it’s not simple. There are complexities in the story line, along with twists that take you for a ride you weren’t expecting. I loved what the Trichord was able to do. The concept is very unique and creative.
Ragesong: Trimphant is the culmination of the story, and it was one of my favorites. It was a bit violent, since it’s a war and all, but I thought it came together very well. A few friends were lost along the way, which is super sad, but I liked the ending. I thought it brought all the loose ends together in a good way. It wasn’t too happy or too sad. Just right.
If you’re ready to get lost in Fermicia and learn all about Ragesong and the powers it has, I highly recommend this series. And of course, this book! You have to see what happens!
Content Rating: PG-13 (There isn’t any profanity or “intimacy.” There is quite a bit of war violence with fighting and characters dying. It can be a bit graphic in spots.)
Recommendation: 13 Years-old and up (YA approved!)
My Rating: 4/5
