Library Journal Review

They survived the first battle, but the war continues. Fallon Swift has known she was foretold as the One who would lead the world to healing after its fall from the sickness named the Doom and the surge of magic. Now, as the Purity Warriors continue to destroy anything different and the government tortures those with gifts in search of their own power, Fallon brings the fight to Washington, DC. She works to heal the rifts between ordinary and extraordinary, so the world can begin to find peace. Ironically, Fallon will need an army; she can't finish this fight alone. In the process she will have to face family, both good and bad, and the path of her own heart. Characters will come full circle, leaving no loose ends in this fast-moving, robust story. VERDICT The final volume of "The Chronicles of the One" (Of Blood and Bone; Year One) is a full fantasy, postapocalyptic version of Roberts's tried and true storytelling mastery.
