After having had to wait seemingly FOREVER for the final book of this trilogy to be released, I wish the wait had been longer.
The story itself was good but NOT in the same vein as Z's previous works.
The trilogy was wrapped up well. But the ending felt forced and rushed....."kill 60% of the characters that we've been with through the previous books with no fanfair at ALL....and just send the rest on their way..."
I'm not sure how much of the story was fleshed out from Z.A.'s notes, but with the different writing styles of Z and Thom, I know if I tried, I'd be able to figure it out.
4 stars for the finish of the trilogy...but this was a disappointment overall.
I miss Z.A. Recht. We lost a major talent WAY to early in his career.
