This is for the whole series I liked Ilan but it just was hard to for me to keep interest in this series. Overall everything just felt too rushed I did not like who Ilan ended up with Terrac. I liked her with Fleet better. To each their own. Again Terrac and Ilan are just kind of thrown together randomly until the end of the story. It just makes no sense to me. However with Fleet that story would be far more interesting and fits more of her personality and her interests. Along with they both hav ...more

I decided to read all six books before giving a proper review. I enjoyed them immensely; they were a fun and easy read. Unlike many reviewers, I didn't have a problem that they came in small bite-sizes, mostly because they came out one after the other so it made no difference with the flow of the reading.
I did, though, have a problem with the ending which seemed to be in a bit of a rush to get there. The bit about the attempted murder on Ilan was there in order to put another plot into the mix,

My traditional style of reviewing isn't going to work for this book. What a fantastic ending to The Legend of Dimmingwood Series. I've loved Ilan's character since her introduction in Magic of Thieves. She's my type of character strong female that isn't afraid of her male counter parts. Ilan's journey hasn't been an easy one though at times it seemed like it at some points in the series. I'm so happy with the ending of this series I can't find enough words to express this happiness. I look forwa ...more

This is where we end our journey with Ilan of Dimmingwood. It has been a wild ride and I am going to miss her and her friends. I really enjoy C Greenwood's writing and I have read everything she has written. I have been lucky enough to be included in her ARC group for many of her books. I was in love with these characters from the beginning, and though it hasn't all been peaches and cream I have enjoyed following along on these adventures with them. I liked the way the author has concluded this ...more

What an ending for the series. The writing and characters in this series made it for a great and enjoyable read. I highly recommend you read this and also the 3 book series that tells the story of Red Hand. These 2 series go hand in hand. I really enjoyed myself reading both of these and I believe you will also. If you don't your loss. Great Reading Everyone!!!!

A great war, love find, the death of the old Praetor, an assassination attempt, and all after Ilan return. An she win her love or will all be lost? Great story, even better fight scenes.

Extremely satisfying

It is a rare treat that a series ends with me happy and accepting of the author's conclusions. C. Greenwood is to be commended not only for that but for a masterful ability to create a journey the reader is anxious to join. I truly enjoyed the entire trip.

This was a good little series. Book 5 was my favorite. I did like the ending but would have liked to see more of Greenwood's amazing characters in the grand finale. All in all, it kept me reading late into the night and that says it's a good book.

A good finish

C. Greenwood has ended this tale much too soon for me. I was ready for three or four more chapters in the Legend.
Oh well, I'll survive.

I liked that I could enter this story without having read the previous books. Rather than worry about the who/what/why from the stories before, I just leapt in & let it wash over me. It worked well enough. That said, I have zero interest in these characters and this world. Neither poorly nor poorly executed, the characters, plot, world, etc all work well and are accomplished. I just couldn't get pulled in & I think that's an entirely subjective stance. Also, had I begun with the series f ...more

Great story telling. WONDERFUL characters!!!!!

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND reading these books.
"Legends of Dimmingwood" is a great 6 book adventure that I hope anyone that reads fantasy books takes time out to read this story.
Ilan is the main character but after you start reading, after the introduction, you'll see how many different characters she comes to know. Some are good and some are bad as usual, but the author creates such a wonderful background and sense of love for his characters, that I feel y

A fabulous conclusion to an excellent fantasy series, where Ilan battles old and new enemies and is forced to make difficult choices.

It's not easy to say much without spoilers, but will say that this story is steeped in adventure, enchantment, love, loss, betrayal and loyalty; it also is filled with suspense, surprises and legend.

Highly recommended!

Fantastic, exciting end to the series. Great plot twists. Hated to see Ilan's story end; however, loved the way it ended. You can't miss this series or its fantastic ending. Perfect for all teens and adults.

Wow!!! This last book was my absolute favorite out of the whole series. The story wrapped itself up so well in that last chapter and it is a bit of a shame to see the series finished.

Great story

The story of Ilan and Terrac is wrapped up nicely in this final book. This is a very good book for young readers interested in science fiction.

Good closure for the series but there is a feeling of something lacking, mostly in secondary character development.

Overall, I think this was an okay series. There was a lot of strong bonds between friendship, love, family and allies. There was a few unexpected events but that did keep the book interesting.
