Only Broken Things Are Free (A Pygmalion Fail Book 3) by Casey Matthews
Overall star rating --- 5
About the book:
In the concluding book of the Pygmalion Fail trilogy, the world of Rune stands on the brink of chaos as dragons overtake the Queen’s capital. Isaac, along with the Queen and his samurai bodyguard Ronin, must escape to a mystic sanctuary aboard a sky ship crewed by beautiful female warriors who find him ridiculous—and whose opinion of his best friend, who happens to be an orc, is lower still.
Meanwhile, Isaac’s already weird relationship with his samurai protector takes another turn when he learns of Ronin’s origins—and those of Rune itself.
But there’s precious little time for bickering now. He’ll need all his allies if he’s to defeat the Lord of Dragons.

The review --
This book, like the others in the series, is an absolute delight to read. Although, there were a couple of moment towards the end when I wondered if I was going to continue to like this book in the end. But the author has written a wonderful conclusion to an awesome series.
And yet, the ending leaves the door open to further novels in this series; but yet leaves the reader feeling very satisfied at the ending they were given.
This book has slightly less humor than the other two, but that in no way diminishes this book. This is the conclusion after all, and the big battle happens in this book. But there are humorous moments here and there. The action is wonderfully intense, and very well written.
Can't remember when I've enjoyed a series more. I highly recommend this series to any reader, but especially to science fiction fans, fantasy fans, and gamers.
