I hated this book. The more I think about it the more I hate it, I better stop or I'll end up despising the very paper it's written on. I had a feeling this would happen because I wasn't a fan of La Mémoire de Babel but I hoped this book would redeem it: silly me for thinking that, when the signs were all there.

Thinking back to the first two books in the series (which I really loved), I realise that what pulled me in was the whole politics-and-court-drama thing and there was nothing like that he

Honestly, my emotions are all over the place. This was a brilliant conclusion to this marvelous series. This book was truly moving and self-reflecting. I am in awe and heartbroken, wow. I'll forever cherish those characters, and Ophelie is for sure in my top 5 main characters of all times, hands down. Also, Christine Dabos has some wonderful writing skills, I hope the English version does justice to the original.
5/5 stars, THIS BOOK. I CRI

Ok so. I stayed up late last night to finish this book and I’m very sad to say that this is maybe my least favorite in the entire series. The very very end - and by that I mean the last ten pages or so - were extremely disappointing.
Overall, I felt like this last book was trying too much: the plot was too complicated for nothing, with new characters suddenly having so much more importance than the other ones we followed since book one, plus plot points that served nothing and were introduce

There's always going to be high emotional stakes when it comes to the final book in a series you really loved, and I knew that going in. Nevertheless, even that knowledge couldn't protect me from being very sad at the end. I have so many thoughts (and feelings!).

First off, I definitely understand why people did not like this book as much (the lower average rating on Goodreads had mentally prepared me a little- though ofc it's still above 4 stars). In any instance where you build your world arou

Well, I’m disappointed. RTC

Original review: I am so, so excited for this book, y'all have no idea.

The end of this quartet was sometimes hard to follow, but still fun to read and of course it was great to accompany Ophélie on the end of her adventures. I wish we had seen more of Archibald and Berenilde, but there was a LOT of ground to cover in this book and I think that Dabos just didn't have the space to include any more about them. It is a compelling end to a fun quartet and a real pleasure to have read the whole thing in a few weeks. My kids (10 and 13) both enjoyed it as

Let me start this review by saying that I don't tend to read Young Adult books. If anything, I usually look down on adults that read them. And yet I picked up this series. Partially because it was highly visible near the checkout of my local library, partially because the world building intrigued me.
Do I regret it? No, despite all the mandatory YA tropes that I cringed through. And yet this series overall has left me with a sour aftertaste.

Now onto A Tempest of Echoes specifically. It has been

What kind of fuckery was that?!
This book felt COMPLETELY rushed. It wanted to be so smart, and failed horribly.
It had (some) great ideas, but lost its way in the first hundred pages. It was also very confusing, and just WAAAY over its own head with all the topics it wanted to cover.

I’m so disappointed because I LOVED the first two installments of the saga, and thought that the third one was solid. But now this?! WHAT?!

The last volume of the Mirror Visitor Quartet is a breath-taking, over-the-top page turner. It’s also messy, confusing and convoluted. Some subplots from the former books are left adrift and even if the most important questions are answered, not everything is explained or clarified. It’s not a perfect book, but it’s a fitting closure for this bizarre and imaginative story full of heart and wonder.
In this finale, the author focussed on the core mystery of the plot and on the two main characters.

I enjoyed reading this fourth book, but to be honest it is not nearly as good as the first two.
Such good ideas and characters, I am disappointed at how all of it feels kind of wasted here. Too many unnecessary new plots and too many great characters left behind.
So sad, it was so close to entering amongst my favourite series!

Finally, the full picture of the world invented by the author opens before the readers. The puzzle of the past and present has been formed and all the secrets have surfaced. I admire this series of books!

Do you know this utterly desperate search for one last sentence, even one last word, after finishing a really good book? When you flick through every last page because you're hoping for something - anything! - more to come? That's me with this beauty of a book.

I totally get why people might've had some trouble enjoying this finale. I really had to concentrate and focus on every word to follow up with all the explainations - because not even the tiniest bit of information seemed to be irrelevant

I gave it four stars but I honestly don't know what to think of it. My heart aches and I've been crying for the last fifteen minutes. This book was. So good. And so much, and so many things, and I feel I won't ever be able to truly put my thoughts about it into words. ...more

What a phenomenal ending to this series! It was intriguing all the way through, the atmosphere was amazing. I couldn't put it down. Ophelia and Thorn really have come a long way.

This is definitely one of the most unique series I've ever read. I'm already looking forward to rereading it.

Although I usually don't enjoy series, I devoured all four books in no time. There were moments during the middle were the action was a bit dragging and I felt Christelle Dabos was getting lost on technicalities but I've always wanted to know what was coming next and couldn't wait to get started with the next book in the series.

The universe felt fresh, the characters fleshed out, with a real and deep development, meaningful relationships, the main plot amazingly original and surprising.

I'm kind of disturbed by the end of this series. I'm not used to "open ending" but also it's a great way to imagine ourself the real ending! It's a little bit frustrating though aaaah!

These novels were great though, the characters were interesting and the author really have this unlimited imagination which is not given to everyone. She has created such a complicated world but it was fascinating. I loved it, I loved to be Ophelia and follow her adventure.

A great ending to a great novel series, I

Who would have thought, while joyfully reading the first book of this series, that it would all lead up to This? This part is more difficult to follow than the other three, since so many things are happening and everything is escalating quickly, the overall tone of it is different and shows us the urgency of the matter Ophelia finds herself in. I found it very entertaining regardless and was okay with the final ending.
