Witch's Pyre by Josephine Angelini
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

In a Nutshell: Extreme sacrifice | Epic apex

Fans left desperate for more by Firewalker’s finale will be more than satisfied with this final feverish instalment of the Worldwalker trilogy in which heroine Lily is tested to the most intense extremes yet. Which is exactly what you’d expect of the conclusion to an adrenaline fuelled series but - rest assured - the action unfolds in ways you won’t expect. Lily may have survived fighting the Hive, but many among her “small band of braves” did not. She lost the battle, many lost their lives, and now she and those who remain must find a fresh way to defeat the Woven.

Driven by high-octane action and the concepts of alternate worlds and alternate selves, this trilogy offers an exciting alternative to fans of the fantastical. The smooth entwining of magic, myth, science and sass is refreshingly ambitious and executed with flair. Buckle up for the wildest Worldwalker ride yet! ~ Joanne Owen

Synopsis

Witch's Pyre by Josephine Angelini

If you fail, you burn. Witch's Pyre - the final book in the Worldwalker trilogy - is the electrifying conclusion from internationally bestselling author of the Starcrossed series, Josephine Angelini. Lily Proctor has come a long way from the weak, sickly girl she used to be. She has gained power as a witch and a leader, found her way home, chosen to face battle again, and (after losing her first love and being betrayed by her new love) she has learned more about loss and grief than she ever wanted to know.

Thrust once again into a society different from anything they have ever seen, Lily and her coven are determined to find answers to find a new path to victory, a way to defeat the monstrous Woven without resorting to nuclear weapons or becoming a tyrannical mass murderer like her alternate self, Lillian. But sometimes winning requires sacrifices ...and when the only clear path to victory lies at Lillian's side, what price will Lily be willing to pay?
