Enhance your purchase
To defeat an immortal evil, a young warrior must enter the land of the dead in the spellbinding conclusion to Wall Street Journal bestselling author Jeff Wheeler’s epic Grave Kingdom trilogy.
As kingdoms fall, brave young warrior Bingmei fights to fulfill a prophecy and save what’s left of the world from the coming darkness. Should she fail, Echion, the diabolical Dragon of Night, and his queen will hold sway over the next thousand years. With Echion comes his unstoppable army of dragons―powerful, vengeful, and under his control.
Accompanied by her loyal friend Quion, Bingmei journeys toward her last hope. It lies among the savage beasts just beyond the ancient Death Wall―an uninhabited realm from which no one has ever returned alive. Bingmei’s mission is to find the phoenix shrine and learn the Immortal Words that will allow her to harness eternal magic. With Echion and his legions in pursuit, Bingmei must choose her words wisely to break Echion’s spell and accept her fate.
Bingmei knows what she must do. She must join the ranks of the dead as well. For a fearless and selfless warrior, it’s the ultimate sacrifice. But Bingmei is about to discover that even in death, the greatest sacrifices are yet to come.

I didn't want too, but I did.
I have read every single book Jeff Wheeler has published. This was my least favorite one. It felt like he was way too in over his head with the theology. SO MANY theological parallels, and not in a good way! Instead of feeling inspired, this work felt sacrilegious. This book felt forced, really confusing, and was an overall uncomfortable reading experience. I found myself skimming just to see how it would play out.
Paralleling Bingmei to the Blessed Mother using direct Biblical quotes was a little too much for me to read comfortably. The time travel as well was bizarre. The weird, virgin but not really virgin birth was altogether too much and he never made it clear until the end how the baby was going to be conceived. I spent almost the whole book thinking the baby was the Pheonix's reincarnation implanted in her until things were explained better at the end. There were super obvious Moses parallels. The Pheonix as an all powerful deity but not really a deity also muddied the waters of this book.
AND IT DOESN'T EVEN HAVE AN ENDING!!!! He admits in the Author's Note that his wife even asked him, "Jeff, will there be a fourth?"
This was all just way too extra.
Mr. Wheeler, as a fervent fan, I am imploring you to write the ending and publish a fourth book. You left just too much open! This review will immediately change to a 5-star rating when I see that another book is coming.
But twists abound and now Bingmei must find her way to the future where a blind Rowen waits and back again to sacrifice once again in the battle to create a world free of Echion and Xisi. All it takes is courage, love, and sacrificing something she never imagined that she’d have to surrender.
This is another read-it-in-one-sitting-if-at-all-humanly-possible book. The worldbuilding and the action are first-rate and totally immersive. How is it Wheeler can create such an imaginative world that is just so REAL? You never doubt for a moment that you are there for every wind, scent, and bird cry.
The downside to this book is that it is still not the end, and we must wait for the next novel. The Immortal Words has more closure as the first two books, so it isn’t as much of a cliffhanger. Major arcs are wrapped up in a satisfactory way while still leaving the story open to continue. I’m looking forward to the next book, though, and hoping it’s the conclusion of the story. Fingers crossed!
ETA: AAARRRRRGGGGHHHHH!!!! I just went back to read the acknowledgements and Jeff Wheeler says this IS the LAST book. How can that be? Too many story lines are left unfinished and obviously open for continuation. Okay, I’m knocking off a star for that. Way too open for a last book in my mind... sigh...

The book started out a bit slow for me. I was actually if the story had lost it's way an if everything I liked about the story was not done. The next 2/3 of the book are a fast paced, cannot turn the pages fast enough story. With plenty of action that was missing earlier.
Jeff Wheeler mentioned all the Kung Fu movies he watched to research this. He mentioned Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon and I can definitely see the influences of that movie her.
A great book about destiny, family and of course martial arts. A slow start but definitely worth pushing through. Not all questions are answered buy there might be s reason that. Here's hoping.
You will not be disappointed with this read if you follow the writer as I do cannot wait for my next adventure mmmm
