'Shore against Soulhire' is the case widely anticipated in Voulhirian court. University students want to open their kingdom to refugees from the Lands of Princes, the chain of islands that had been in war for over twenty years. There's one slight problem with this request. Accepting it might direct the wrath of Emperor of Lullabies on Voulhire.

Before the case is closed, King Wilhelm, the king of Voulhire, is betrayed by one of his confidants, and Emperor of Lullabies is aware of the situation at Soulhire. Now, no one is sure of the outcome of this misunderstanding.

Galen Bray, the blacksmith of Magnum Caelum, and his two companions are going to Soulhire with the intention of having an audience with the king and getting his help with the situation in Virko, a city currently inhabited by demons. Will their meeting be successful or disastrous?

We are Voulhire: Someone Else's End, the third book of We are Voulhire series, written by Matthew Tysz is a continuation of its prequel and begins three weeks from when the second book concluded. It's written from the perspectives of multiple characters. Like the other two books, the author uses both first person and third person points of view.

I liked a lot of things about this book. So if you asked me what I liked best, it would be difficult to pinpoint one thing. But, I think what I liked most was the way the author surprised me again and again. Even the character development became a surprise with certain characters. That's why I can assure you that many characters are not what they appear initially. I changed my perspective of several such characters after getting to know them better.

I don't think I disliked anything in this book. If there's anything I can change about it, then that would be its length. We are Voulhire: Someone Else's End is a book of 114 pages. It felt too short, and I reached its final page too quickly for my liking. Therefore, even without knowing whether it has a sequel, I'm hoping for one.

Usually, I don't recommend Tysz's books to young readers for many reasons. His books are full of profanity and sometimes there are vivid details of gruesome murders and dead bodies. Also, they contain dark themes. But, if you're up for a little bit of profanity, even young readers might be able to enjoy We are Voulhire: Someone Else's End. As this is a sci-fi and fantasy book, all lovers of those two genres will also find it to their liking. Unfortunately, this is not a standalone novel, and if you want to enjoy this book without any confusion, then you'll definitely have to read the first two books.

I'm ecstatic to be able to award it a full score of 4 out of 4 stars. When I saw several typos, I was afraid that I'd have to deduct a star. But, fortunately, I only noticed 5 mistakes. I don't think I'll have to give reasons as to why I gave it a perfect score. I'm sure it's apparent from every single word in my review.

This does sound like a fantastic book, but I have not read the other two. I may have to take a look at them, though, especially since you liked this one. Thanks for a wonderful review!

I can relate to the fear you had when you began noticing the mistakes. It recently happened to me and the book was quite interesting. Fortunately, the errors did not exceed the minimum required. Thanks for this exciting review.

Amazing review! I read the first book in this series and immensely enjoyed the worldbuilding and the suspense as well. I love how well edited these books are; it makes the read even more engaging. I admire you on summarising the book so well. Thanks for reviewing it.

This sounds interesting! It's a shame this one was so short, as it's obvious how much you enjoyed it. Thanks for the recommendation, I may have to read this series

I usually prefer young adult books without the bout of profanity and it's good to know this book meets that mark. However, I'm in no mood for another series bingeing so I guess I'll pass after all :) Glad you enjoyed the book!
