Upon returning to court each encounters changes they did not expect. Relationships are challenged and the girls discover that again they are each others' most reliable companion.

Shadow's End is one of those rare books that could either be a one star or a five star. One star because I was so sad to see the end of it
that it made me want to drown myself in chocolate until I felt better
and five stars because it had to be pretty good to mess with my feels like that.

Starting this trilogy, I would have never imagined that I would become as invested in the story and as attached to the characters as I have. The story was perfectly crafted and the characters had a depth that I haven’t seen in a long while.
If you haven’t started this trilogy, do yourself a favor and pick up the first book (it’s even free!).

All in all I liked this trilogy, but I never really liked the pace of the story. Also, the beginning of this book wasn't believable, so that made it more difficult. Characters of Katwin and Miriel were good and well developed. Never really got Roine character or the prophecy. A lot of court intrigue which was good in some respects, confusing in others. Ok read, not spectacular. Happy Reading!
I liked this trilogy: the characters and the plot. I was surprised by the ending. It resolved all the questions that had been piling up throughout the books, but it wasn't a very satisfying ending because it was so sad. But I guess you can't always get a happy ending.
2nd - This is the book I was waiting for! Of all 3 - this is the one that finally shows what the writer can do! The characters are well developed and the story finally goes somewhere! Glad it wrapped up and pleased with the ending.
I have been writing since I was old enough to read, and I write on every scrap of paper I can get my hands on. In th ...more
