really liked it
Read from May 10 to 11, 2012

after sticking with the series the whole time i was very excited to read the final book and find out some answers and, of course, who Laurel ends up with. overall i am very happy with this as the finishing book in the series, i thought that things tied up nicely and i absolutely loved reading from not only Laurels perspective but from Tamani's as well, it was a good change that presented different views, which really worked well to describe the events.

although the book took place over a very short period of time, it didnt at all feel rushed or forced - you know how sometimes its so fast paced that is just doesnt feel... natural? it was good, almost perfect.

i have always been team Tamani, from the first time we met him, so David appeared to insignificant and boring and just not as totally awesome as Tam, to me, but in this book i loved David. he was presented in a new light and his actions were respectable and brave and just overall amazing, so it really was great that it was balanced off a bit.

as much as i would love to ramble about who Laurel chose, i cant, i wont even put in a little spoiler box because well i really dont want to spoil it for anyone at all so im not even going to tell you if i was happy or not with the choice because that would then make it clear who it was. there is so much i would love to talk about in the ending - both likes and dislikes (mainly likes) - but i dont want to spoil it.

Laurel has grown stronger over the series and i love the way she thinks, she is definitely very clever and a genuine, kind person. she has been a great main character although there is a certain ignorance in her air that i dont particularly enjoy, its more of a naiveness that is everpresent and not always in the best ways. nevertheless i still loved her and enjoyed going on her journey along side her.

4.5 stars - Aprilynne Pike is a great writer and has produced an amazing series that i would probably enjoy reading again. i recommend this book for lovers of the fae world.
