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 ...more
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 ...more

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.
Once Upon A Time there was a girl named Kylie who fell in l ...more
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 ...more

1) the School for Good and Evil: ★★★★★/5
2) a World without Princes: ★★★★★/5
3) the Last Ever After:
4.5 fairy Golden Stars
4.75 Golden Stars!
what an amazing story!
such a roller-coaster; in every book & especially this one!
I LOVED IT!
this one is my fav in this series!
amazing Plot, full of thrills ("Whoooooo"s & "Weeeeee"s!), some Nostalgia I'm pretty sure everyone loves it!
all of the books had some similarities about the world but some difference at the same time! we always ...more
In terms of character arc and development I still love Agatha and even Tedros but Sophie's overall journey was just meh. I was pretty unimpressed with her "growth" and found the ending a ...more
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. ...more
(view spoiler)[RIP to Leonora Lesso, one of my favourite characters.
Also, I really really love Sophie's ending. After three books of her desperately seeking true love, she finally found happiness within herself. You go, girl.

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?
After all Agatha does live in a cemetery and her cat
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
The plot twists were okay but I think everyone figured out what would happen at the end.
I had an inkling that somehow Sophie and Agatha were (view spoiler)[related. I had thought that maybe her father had an affair with Agatha's mother. Didn't know they would be a result for a spell gone wrong. (hi ...more
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 ...more
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.
I really liked Hort and Lady Lesso. (view spoiler)[You were right
Hort people will love you the most in this book. (hide spoiler)]
This book had everything love, friendship, humor, action an ...more
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. ...more
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 ...more
A lot of things about this one were better than the second. The first book in the series was very promising and it's disappointing where it went after that. I also don't think this is a middle grade ...more
