Zero spoilers for previous books


It's been a while since I did a song review. Anyhoo, put on your cowboy boots, slip on a sparkly dress and let's go back to 2008, when this gem came out.



I took a chance, I took a shot
And you might think you're bulletproof, but you're not
You presented an ending, I took it hard
And down here from the ground I see what you've become

I'm sick and tired of your repetition
I'm feeling like I don't know you
You make Sophie struggle with Good and Evil, like that hasn

HOLY CRAP HOLY CRAP HOLY CRAP HOLY CRAP

THIS BOOK WAS PERFECTION. IT WAS EVERYTHING SOMAN PROMISED IT WILL BE EXCELT FIVE TIMES MORE THAN THAT.

THE CLOSING LINE WAS PERFECT.

Now to the calm portion:

The first two books had this pattern of Sophie and Agatha being placed in a situation of injustice and pointing out said injustice within seconds. This book, however, took it a step further by having EVERYONE who experienced injustice in the course of the series call BS, including Lesso, Dot, Hester, an

BEWARE PLOT TWISTS EVERYWHERE!!!!
The Perfect Fairytale Ending.
This is my all time favorite Juvenile series. Mr. Chainani has forever filled my High School girl heart with good and happiness. If a person creates a series that was meant for juveniles and hooks a high schooler to the point of her dying for the book releases, buying his books, crying at his books and even having it as her phone wallpaper.. Well that person deserves a medal.

Do you ever read a book and have such high hopes, see so much potential...only for it to take you on a ridiculous, nonsensical runaround, completely wasting your time?

Yeah, that's pretty much what you're setting yourself up for if you read this book. The pacing is terrible, the characters motivations don't make any sense and the "big twist" revealed in the final pages of the book has absolutely no bearing on the outcome of the story.

In the first book, we're told that you can find love outside of

2017 Reread: Okay, so maybe the flaws stick out to me a bit too much the second time round! Everyone's speech, including all the secondary characters, are m o n o l o g u e s. I understand why this book is 650 pages long, because everyone speaks in paragraphs, not sentences. Also, the relationship development between Sophie and Agatha doesn't really happen until 500 pages in. The rest is just a repetition of the antics we've seen in the first two books.

I think it would almost be more interesting

Recommends it for: Everyone who likes a good/evil fairytale, young and old!
The best thing about this book (and the series as a whole, in fact) is how often it surprises you. There were many points while reading 'The Last Ever After' that I thought "How on earth are they possibly going to get out of this situation?" or "What on earth is really going on here?" only to find myself, pages or chapters later, wondering, "How on earth did I not work it out?!?!?!". The best twists, I think, are those you didn't work out but, when they are presented to you, they make perfect se ...more

I have been in a reading slump for two and a half weeks! That's crazy, I can't believe I haven't read in so long. Nowadays, I have so many things to catch up on but there is NO TIME! Before I get too into my ranting, I want to talk to you about something. It's something that I have been thinking about for awhile.

There are so many books and movies that have Good vs Evil. And if you think about it, MOST people, not all, support Good. While others support Evil, but in the end, Good always wins.

This would have gotten a higher rating if it hadn't been so bloody long. And angsty! -_-
Full review to come.



Let me tell you that this book starts in an amazing way: Have you ever wondered what happens after a supposedly "happy ever after"?
Well look no further, this story's beginning definitely focus on that part of Agatha and Tedros story.
Is it all flowers and fluffy kittens?
Well... no.
After all Agatha does live in a cemetery and her cat that bald and wrinkly thing has very specific tastes

Re-read(9-12-20)


This book was good. It really tied everything together so nicely and gave a very satisfying ending. My problems with this book were mostly that so much was happening that is could have been spread out into two books and given us more fleshed out scenes and details. And if not, shortening the book would have been acceptable, because this book book felt too long. A litteral brick. The pacing was also kinda wonky, with some parts feeling repetitive and slow, and other parts passin

That was a little above 3.5 stars which I’ll graciously round up to 4 because I’m a good person and also because the book was extremely easy to read, the silliness and hilarity helping despite being comparatively less amusing.


I won’t be using phrases like “fitting finale” or “spectacular conclusion” to describe this last book in the trilogy owing to the fact that it was not. It wasn’t bad by any means. Fitting, perhaps, but certainly not spectacular and herein lies my disappointment. It was just

Spoiler alert ok I think agatha and tedros will try to save the schools and end the war to be back to the schools. The school master and Sophie will rule the school for evil and agatha and tedros will rule school for good

I'm not sure where to begin with this review...

As a whole, I'd give this series 4-stars, with some deep reservations. (I think this was a series with a high-profile premise, that you don't see too often in the genre, and that's what's carried me through the series, despite the almost rushed feel of the actual books.)

Soman Chanani succeeds wildly on several fronts:
-Both Sophie and Agatha (our heroines) are well-drawn characters that you can immediately empathize with, and understand why they're f

Ohhh so many things I want to say about this book, but I can't even find the right words to it!
What a big mess! Sorry but, all the three books has the same end: no matter what, Sophie is evil and never will get what she wants.
Which I think is really bad because, as Sophie try so hard to be good, which makes her be even more evil, it's like seeing evil winning, in the end!
So, what good message does this book brings?! None!
It's full of violence and no true love at all! A son killing his own mothe

I have one question that I think completely summarises my thoughts:
WHY THE FUCK IS THIS THING 650 PAGES LONG?!

Seriously. I could end my review there and I think it would be adequate. But I'm not going to do that because I actually have a lot to say about this book. My list of complaints is quite lengthy so prepare yourselves.

BUT FIRST, some background information. I think the first book in this series was excellent! Its commentary on Good vs Evil, destiny, friendship and happy endings was top n

Reading this book for the fourth time and I'm still as heartbroken as the first time I read it. Ha. This third book is still my favorite of them all. It hurts in all the right places. Although I'm not sure my heart can take more. It's also the book with all the best endings. For so many of them. It is a book filled with hope for the future.

At the same time as they watch their world almost be destroyed for good. There is so much going on this book. All of it exciting and interesting to read about

Finished. FINALLY! Way too long, way too detailed and way too much of everything. Tedros is a weak coward with no courage at all. Good looking but full of fear and ... I have no words. Right now I doubt that I will read the fourth book. Not after the torture this one was. How can a series, that startet so great and with a firework of fun, irony and great scenes become such a disaster? No recommendation from my side. Sorry, Mr. Chainani.

The Last Ever After is the final book in the School for Good and Evil it takes place just after the end of the second book with Agatha choosing this time Tedros over Sophie for her happy ever after. Leaving Sophie with the young school master who wants to be her happy ever after even if they are evil. However things aren’t as easy for Agatha and Tedros back in her village with him just a normal boy and they are forced to hide of with the village determined to have their heads.

“To find a happy ending with someone else, first you have to find it alone.”

This book was bloody long.

It was a good story and addition to the series but I still believe that the last 2 booka weren't really necessary. I would have been happy with just the first one.
Nice ending to the series - happy about it.

3.5 stars, a difficult one to rate. The first 450 or so pages were just okay. Especially a certain plot point that gets introduced into that part. But when that certain part ended, the last 200 pages were awesome. The fights were more gruesome than I expected it to be but it was awesome. Chapter 33 explains a lot of things though I'm still not sure how I feel about all of it. Maybe I need to reread this series sometime. ...more
