really liked it
bookshelves: fantasy, publication-contemporary
Read in June, 2011 — I own a copy

I don't want to spoil, so I'll just say this was a fitting and emotional conclusion for a rather delightful series about a bunch of rather delightful women.

I had a few personal disappointments in the end, but they were largely not the fault of the book itself.

The series is uniquely enjoyable due to its close focus on well-rounded, layered, and flawed female protagonists (and antagonists and side characters) without The Point being that they're female. They're just people, the people who the story happens to be about, and while things where The Point is that the characters involved are female can be great and certainly fill a need, this is refreshing to see as well.

Sad it's over!
