We are Voulhire: Someone Else’s End is the third installment in the We are Voulhire series. In this book, Matthew Tysz takes us back once again to the dark and mystical world of Voulhire. Following their immediate departure from Virko, Galen and his friends travel to Soulhire, the capital of Voulhire, to ask the king to restore peace in the demon-infested city of Virko. At first, things seem to run smoothly until sinister forces present itself again, promising death and destruction.

This particular installment places emphasis on the characters. Galen’s character development is starting to become more apparent. He is turning from being humble and naïve to someone more tough, angry, and vulgar with his speech. The author sheds light on Rowan’s past and family. His role is growing more important as the author reserves a few chapters for him. Aside from the focus on the existing characters, the author reveals some new and promising ones as well.

I like the character development. Galen is getting into some action scenes, exhibiting his fighting prowess. I find it interesting that he still has not lost his sense of wonder despite how much he’s grown. It is additionally satisfying to see the trio in combat. The author has once again proven his exceptional writing skill. I admire his poetic diction and meticulous attention to detail. It makes the story delightful to read.

There are some interesting female characters that Matthew Tysz adds in this installment. Sophie Shore is a young activist who wants to help the refugees, but her presence isn’t that profound. Meanwhile, there is Beth of Caromentis, a sorceress who works for Meldorath. I see huge potential in her to develop into a strong, established character. I hope her character lives up to my expectations. It’s nice to see some additional female characters such as Sophie and Beth. I still hope to see more in the books to come.

There is nothing I dislike about this installment. In comparison to the previous books, it has shown significant improvements in a lot of aspects. It is also well-written and professionally edited with little to no errors. Therefore, We are Voulhire: Someone Else’s End deserves 4 out of 4 stars. I recommend this book to mature readers. Anyone who has read the prequels should continue on with this book. It offers a lot of adventure and suspense. The cliffhanger will leave you wanting to read more. There are sexual references here and there, but nothing too erotic. There is plenty of violence and profanity that would make this book not advisable for children to read.
