I read this book or not, I wanna know if the ending is sad or something.

Tim Poston Anita, "Spoilers" are a weird modern allergy. If they really spoiled a book, we could never re-read it!
I read https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1... every few years: so many times that I can't remember not knowing that "Reader, I married him." It's always a different book, just like https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1... (where she also marries him — and the story arc makes this predictable early on) because I have grown, and see the world differently.

To say that a book can be 'spoiled' is to say it is only a plot puzzle, and not worth reading in the first place. It's like refusing to read https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5... because somebody has already told you that e=mc².
Natalie Baker It's at least not pointlessly sad. The feels are real, but the ending mostly sets up the next book. But this book is amazing so you should read it.
Anita Telling you that would involve spoilers, which isn't any fun for anyone. What's wrong with crying a little in a book? It only means that you care about the characters and that you care what happens to them. It also means that Rachel Hartman did her job as a writer in making the characters real and believable and also making you attached to them.
Xiola This book is not tragic, and I think the ending can safely be described as "more happy than sad". That is not to say that nothing sad ever happens; sad things happen at some point in nearly every good book. This book is certainly not grim-dark, and it's not a tragedy. It's also not particularly gory. I think sensitive/worried readers can read it quite safely.

(I'm a relatively sensitive reader and had fewer problems with this book than I have with many books)
Justina I think if you really are curious about the book read a few pages into it then determine whether or not you want to continue or not.
