liked it

3.5 stars but down as I felt let down by the finish of the series.

I liked Shadow Heir and it read overall much better than Iron Crowned, with the story telling being more consistent with the excellent first two books in the series. However I was very disappointed at the hypocrisy and immaturity shown by Eugenie, who seems not to have grown in character at all, at the end of the book; hence me marking it down rather than up in my star rating.

I do love the very strong way this series started but the events in the last two books of the series, as driven by Eugenie's failure to develop mature adult thinking, disappointed me a great deal. More so as Richelle Mead tells a magnificent story. I'd love to see a series written by her with a strong heroine who grows throughout the series, which I believe I'd enjoy a great deal more.
