The electrifying conclusion to the Dividing Eden series by the New York Times bestselling author of the Testing trilogy, Joelle Charbonneau.
The Trials of Virtuous Succession have ended. Prince Andreus is king—and Princess Carys is dead.
But even as he’s haunted by what he did to win the throne, Andreus discovers that his dream of ruling only brings new problems. The people love his twin even more in death than they did when she was alive. The Elders treat him as a figurehead. And worst of all, the winds of Eden are faltering.
But despite what everyone believes, Carys is alive. Exiled to the wilderness, Carys struggles to control the powers that have broken free inside her. And as she grows stronger, so does her conviction that she must return to the Palace of Winds, face her twin and root out the treachery that began long before the first Trials started.
The Kingdom of Eden is growing darker with each passing day. Brother and sister, former foes, must decide whether some betrayals cut too deep to be forgiven—and whether one will wear the crown or both will lose everything.

This story, as with the first book is filled with power and corruption, magical abilities, secrets and deceptions. It was fast paced and intriguing story. While plot points weren't all that surprising, I was still interested to see what was going to happen. It had a bittersweet ending with despite being the conclusion of the story, an ending that left things open and left some what to guess. Maybe one day Charbonneu will fill it in the rest....or maybe we have to guess what happened from there.
Well written kept me engaged and wanting more. Would not only recommend this series of books to all people,but all books by this author.
Joelle Charbonneau's books continue to rob me of sleep. As with the previous entries in this series, I ended up reading through the night until I finished. Eden Conquered is another must-read for fantasy lovers. I won't spoil anything, but I'll say that the novellas are far more important to the story than you'd think. Make sure to at least read "Into the Garden" before starting Eden Conquered.
