I wonder if there is any plans for Turkish market?  :)

Hello and forgive the lateness of my reply!

I'm afraid I don't have control over which countries buy rights to the trilogy - if I did, every country in the world would have bought it by now! - so all I can say about the Turkish market is that I haven't heard anything in this regard. It's a possibility for the future, but it's not something I'm aware of at the moment.

But thanks for asking!

It's over, and ohmygawd! What an amazing ending and amazing book, I think this was my favourite of the 3!

I cried. Yes, I admit it, but I dare anyone not to. It's not a spoiler to say that not everyone good (and maybe bad...) survives in the end :'(
(BAD Anna >:()

The different locations worked better in this book than the last one, in my opinion, as I felt they were more evenly balanced.
And I love this writing style: have short chapters from different characters' POV but all within the same scene (instead of using the change in character/POV to move the story to another place). Anna and John Gwynne are the ones that do this wonderfully!

I think everyone who likes their fantasy a bit more 'heavy' and grimdark should read this trilogy, and I can't wait to see what Anna writes next :D

Edit: I only read book reviews after I've finished the book (does that make me odd?), and I've just checked Fantasy Hive's review by Mike Evans (it doesn't have spoilers for this book 3).
It starts like this and I agree 100% ;D (except the feelings, I don't really mind hehe)

The Good: Everything. Seriously. *SPOILERS*

The Bad: IT GAVE ME FEELINGS – I DO NOT LIKE FEELING FEELINGS.

The Ugly Truth: THIS. IS. HOW. YOU. END. A. SERIES. (If I could somehow capitalise a full stop I would use it in this review.) Pulse-pounding drama and action to the heart-breaking end. 11/10, A++, all of the stars.

Oh Bea, thank you so much!! I'm so happy you liked the whole trilogy and thought it ended appropriately. I will admit to being very proud of how it turned out and very pleased with the positive reviews so far, so thank you, thank you, thank you!
