I had high hopes for this finale and it did not disappoint one bit!
I absolutely adore these characters, so it was a joy to follow them for another book, even though they were really going through it.
This has got to be one of the most tense books I have read because I truly wasn’t sure what the characters’ fates would be. It didn’t feel like anything was off the table, so the stakes felt very high the entire time.
This series is not super detail-oriented, where everything that is mentioned is somehow important later on or everything is foreshadowed, like in a Sanderson book. There were definitely some things I still had questions about from earlier in the series the didn’t get answered, but I was overall satisfied with the answers we got.
I think the world of this series felt so fresh and new. There were some concepts that I had seen before, but they were done in a way that was really cool.
The ending was my favorite kind (which I can’t say, because that would be a spoiler), so I was definitely happy with it and also sad that the series was over.
Between the amazing characters, interesting plot and world, and the overall uniqueness of the story, it’s a shame that this series does not have more fans! If you can get your hands on a copy, I would highly recommend it!
