We are Voulhire: Someone Else’s End is a fantasy fiction written by Matthew Tysz. This is the third book in the We are Voulhire series. After a long wait, we finally get to enter Voulhire’s famed capital and experience its coveted charm.

Galen is trying to master his newfound craft. Rowan is busy giving the much-needed guidance and assistance to his friend. Demetrius is still trying to get attention from Yamon Soul regarding Virko. Not a soul in Voulhire knows the true identity of our new Eiodi, except for the heius priests and Vilendrians. As for the capital, king Wilhelm and his citizens are deeply engrossed in the ongoing case ‘Shore against Soulhire.’ Everything seems to be going steady in Voulhire. And this progress in Voulhire is trying to get the attention of someone. Someone who hails from far away, from another land. A land that is incomprehensible to the human mind. And that someone can bend the cosmos itself. So, what will be the fate of Voulhire? Will it absorb the setbacks and strive forward? Or, will it prove that everything that glitters might not be gold after all?

Quite a few characters whom we missed in the second book appear here. We get to look into the backstory of many characters a bit more. There is more action from our new Eiodi because he is planning to visit somewhere special. Look out for the fate of a few favourite characters as the story is turning more gruesome day by day. Many hidden secrets behind the masks are revealed: one of the sweet characters has turned out to be the Brutus of this story. The author has written an elegant description of every object and living soul that the reader might come across. This description assists the reader to imagine the story with minute details.

I enjoyed the book vastly, but I don’t think the book is well-edited. I did find more than 10 errors counting two spelling mistakes. I will read the next book because I’m invested in this story. However, this book could use a dose of much-needed editing. There are numerous profane words and also gruesome details. Please keep them in mind if it bothers you or if you are a teenager.

I will rate this book 2 out of 4 stars. The errors in this book put me off a lot: it shows negligence about the writing. As I said before, I would continue this series as the writing and story are incredible. This book is suitable for any reader who is interested in the fantasy genre, especially books related to magic.
