    Awesome

    Wow! Just wow! I loved Josh and Ember from Full Measure and thought their story was fantastic. I didn't realize how much more there could be until I read this one. This is an emotional read that had me ripping through the tissues. It hit all the buttons and was the perfect followup to the original story and series wrap-up. I highly recommend this one but would advise you to read Full Measure first to get the full impact of this story.

    Stunningly written!!! Need more from this author!

    To see that Josh and Ember's story continued had me excited was an understatement. But this story.. wow... the feels and how much it felt real was insane. The research that Yarros put behind this series is bar none and I seriously urge you to pick it up NOW! Ember and Josh's relationship was a tough one to start out but I rooted for them the whole time. I love their banter and the passion they share for each other. Through tragic events which had me bawling, Josh changes and things are strained to say the least. No matter how much Ember fights, the loss in Josh was very evident. There were moments I seriously wanted to smack both of them, however, not being in that situation, I could only imagine their thought process as well. This book as well as every one in this series was amazing. The flow, the storyline, everything. I could not put it down once I started it and I devoured it fast. You feel a huge range of emotions while reading this one as well. I honestly did not want it to end as I love the whole group from this series! Very much looking forward to more from Yarros in the future!!

    Heart Wrenching & Honest

    I always manage my expectations when I pick up a “military” romance. Very few authors have the real life experience to draw from. They make their hero a SEAL or “Special Forces”, make him an alpha-male, and call it a day. Hallowed Ground blew me away. Not only is it a true military romance, it touched me in a deeply personal manner and I might not be the most impartial reviewer. You see, I’m a combat veteran. Between two tours to Iraq and two tours to Afghanistan I was deployed for more than half of a five year period. Rebecca Yarros has truly captured what military family life is like. Hallowed Ground is so much more than a romance. As the wife of an Army aviator and daughter of an Army officer, she has lived the life and it bursts through the pages in every nuance of this book. Most importantly, she has managed to capture the emotions of being a military family. Not just between lovers, but between the friends you collect and make your family. The joy, the fear, the grief, the anger, the frustration. All of it. This could be a bit of a downer for some readers. There is a lot of emotion in this book. It’s not the usual happy-conflict-resolution romantic formula, but this is probably one of the most honest stories you will ever read. And when he jumps off the cliff and then meets her at the airport…not really, but extra points if you get the movie reference. ;) As much as I loved this story, there were times I felt a little lost. Hallowed Ground is the continuation of Ember’s and Josh’s story from Full Measures. There are a lot of references to their back story. This is absolutely not the fault of the author – it is completely my fault for being a new fan of Rebecca Yarros. I only mention as a warning for other new fans – go read the first three books. You won’t regret it!

    Epic love, passion, and strength. Incredible!

    I’m overcome with emotion while sitting down to write this review. This book not only is packed full of love, risks, consequences, and passion, but it is the last in the series, and as such, I can’t help but get a little choked up. All great series must come to an end. It never gets easier. But Yarros delivered one hell of a parting gift to those of us who are die-hard Flight & Glory fans. HALLOWED GROUND returns to the core couple who started it all, Josh and Ember. They’ve grown as individuals as well as a couple and we get to revisit them at a crucial point in their lives. All the trials, the separation by space and duty stations, has come to head and they get a taste of what a perfect future could look like. Then, true to military fashion, those plans are turned upside down and send Josh back to Afghanistan, the country that nearly killed him once. Their love is strong, epic even, but it’s hard to know if they’ll survive war. Yarros brings readers back home when slipping into Josh and Ember’s point of view and it is one incredible welcome. There is a fire between Josh and Ember’s characters that can’t be denied and the obstacles they must overcome to keep that blaze going are intense and heart wrenching. True to Yarros form, there isn’t a dull moment in this novel, or between our characters. They’re so fully constructed, they practically breathe from the pages, and one can only gasp with them as they face each problem, each blow, each passionate embrace that could be their last. It’s exquisite and heart breaking and awe inspiring. Throughout the Flight & Glory series readers have been invited into the military world with no sugarcoating, filters, or artistic liberties. The author is an expert on the lifestyle and brings an authenticity to the novels that gives readers the rare glimpse of the truth behind the men and women who have to constantly say goodbye to their partners, to have faith that their love can withstand any trial, any war. Yarros punches readers right in the feels every single time and HALLOWED GROUND brings a whole new level of beautiful pain. Reading the last book in the Flight & Glory series had my heart heavy, as saying goodbye to amazing characters you’ve kept up with and constantly hoped for, ever is. The only comfort I take is the fact that these books are so good, the characters so incredible, that I’ve re-read their stories many times already, and know that when I need them they’ll be there to take me on their epic journeys once again, and each time a new layer of emotion is discovered. Only truly great author’s have this capability—to keep readers pouring over the same lines they’ve seen before and gleaning new depth from it—-and Rebecca Yarros is one of them, one of the greats. 
I can’t wait to see what she introduces us to next and I’m grateful for the amazing conclusion she gave to all Flight & Glory lovers in HALLOWED GROUND. It’s everything I didn’t know I needed and above and beyond the description of epic.
