Enemies put their plans into action, leading to the imminent fall of the kingdom. Still, a new player enters the political arena where dangerous games and ambition clash, affecting the future of Voulhire.

Galen Bray is focused on preserving the peacefulness of his new home. So much so, that he goes to the capital of Voulhire, Soulhire. There, he plans to convince the king of the dangers in the city of Virko. His friend Rowan will prove to be helpful in this adventure. The king, however, is engrossed in the current case he is presiding over. Whether he will hear Galen's plea, is questionable.

Unknown to them all, other magical creatures have targeted Soulhire. Galen and his friends once again, find themselves as unwilling participants in the unexpected.

Someone Else's End by Matthew Tyxz is the third in the series entitled "We are Voulhire" series.

I received a 124-page PDF version of this book to review.

Overall, the book appeared well-edited and formatted, with few inaccuracies. I am a fan of the fantasy/supernatural genre of books, which I would categorize this series as. There are elements of this book that are reflective of current social issues, particularly regarding aiding refugees. While the plot of the book is interesting, I did not find myself as engaged as in the previous books of the same series.

The characters have developed further as certain aspects of each character are uncovered. However, there is a stark lack of diversity. I did not appreciate this. Despite the differing role and backgrounds, the characters’ voices blended and became one. I paused several times to recall who is this character was and how he differed from the other.

Additionally, there is profanity in this book. There is also the mention of rape and the inference of violence against homosexuals. As with the other books of the series, there is mention of god as well as the use of magic and the appearance of demons. Some persons may find this offensive to be offensive. There is a level of violence present in the book, though not gory.

I would recommend this book to fans of the fantasy/supernatural genre who are 18 years and over. I would not recommend this book to persons who dislike profanity, mentions of rape, inferred homophobia, god, demons and magic.

I would rate this book 2 out of 4 stars . I considered rating it 3 stars, but I was not as engaged in this book as with the previous ones.
