What I Didn’t Like:
- There were a few grammatical errors in my copy BUT I was working from an ARC so it’s likely these were fixed in the final.
- There’s a few “false” endings. By that I mean there are a few spots where you think you might be at the end before something happens to change that. I personally don’t mind those, especially in a fantasy series, but it’s worth mentioning.
- Again, this one didn’t bother me but I’ll mention it for others (sort of a content warning). This one takes the relationship between two of the characters to a deeper level and does include some romantic scenes. It’s clean enough that I wouldn’t have a problem with older YA reading it.
What I Did Like:
- Ryven has chapters! He was a character I was intrigued by in the first book, I completely adored him in the second book, and he just continues to take a bigger role in this one. He’s a dependable character you want to fix things for and, honestly, he just proves in this one that he probably could’ve been the main character.
- Ending. The author does a great job of giving you answers to questions you’ve had the entire series and wrapping things up in a way that makes sense for the world she’s built.
- Romance arc works. It’s relatable, adorable, and deep.
Who Should Read This One:
- Fantasy fans give this trilogy a go! It’s original use of magic, great world building, and good characters. Plus you’ll love the way it ends.
My Rating: 4 Stars.
The rating is not only for this ending, but also the full series. It’s worth the read, fantasy fans!
