The Claiming

After a century in waiting, those coveting Elaria’s power are ready to strike. But with her self-belief eroded and the weight of secrets growing increasingly unbearable, she’s already at breaking point. The Claiming brings the Coveted Power series to an action-packed finale. Control and destiny are for the claiming, but who will pay the highest price for victory?

The Claiming by Julie Embleton

The Claiming

Coveted Power #3

Elaria must rise or the realms fall. But with others controlling her every move, the overwhelm of dire secrets gnawing at her sanity, and the queen suddenly pushing for a betrothal, it’s not just her spirit that’s breaking. With heart and hope crushed, what remains with which she can fight?

Elaria must rise, or the realms fall.

Elaria Winterbourne is prophesied to save the ten realms from catastrophic destruction. But with her magick buried, impossible secrets eroding her sanity and the one person who could help dying beneath a disintegrating spell, her self-belief has crumbled.

When her fake brother, Charlie, tells her to step into her power, she’s never heard anything so cheesy, or impossible. The battle for domination creeps closer, however, and if Elaria is to fulfil the prophecy and claim her own destiny, she must reignite her self-belief.

In this final instalment of the Voyager Chronicles Prophecy series, a century-old power-grab reaches its climax. Control and destiny are for the claiming, but victory demands sacrifice.

Who will pay the highest price?

Reviews for The Claiming

If you only read one fantasy trilogy this year, make it this one. Oh and everyone should have a Rhyan in their life. Sigh.

Towards the end of the book the pace hots up. I found myself staying up well beyond my bedtime because of my need to finish it and find out what happens – always the mark of a good read in my opinion.


Five star worthy, the 3 books in this series! A lovely combination of humor, danger and love, within the various characters lives.


With the way the author has spun a clever twist on the Chosen One trope in this series, I really began to fear the worst for Elaria in The Claiming. What a satisfying ending Embleton delivered. Can I hope there are future adventures for Solomon and Charlie??

This kind of fantasy saga finds itself in an overcrowded market, except that this one manages to excel and stand shoulder to shoulder with the very best. The plot twists and turns, surprising the reader and giving them what they crave in equal measure. The characters are a delight and each succeeding book builds on the compelling relationships until you both root and fear for them.

All too often, prophecy novels leave the main character with little choice and they are portrayed as mere puppets to the dictates of their destiny. That is not so with these books. Elaria is a strong and determined young woman, who although wishes to be the ruler her parents would like her to be, is ultimately not prepared to sacrifice her own happiness for the sake of protocol and tradition.

What a ride the Coveted Power series has been! In this third and final instalment, Elaria is back in her home realm harbouring secrets, suppressing her magick, grieving the loss of a friend, and deflecting the attempts of her mother’s matchmaking. How long can she withstand this inner despair before she breaks and how can she hope to fulfil the prophecy in a weakened state of mind?

The Claiming is a cleverly crafted paranormal masterpiece and an exciting, page-turning end to the series. I can’t wait to read more of Julie Embleton’s imaginative and creative wonders of the written word. The world building and descriptions are fantastic. Great read!!
