it was ok

Read from September 29 to October 06, 2011

The thing is with a book being the last, you expect it to be amazing and almost everything gets wrapped up. The thing is, Circle of Fire does wrap everything up, but it's not that amazing.

Circle of Fire was a disappointment to me because not much happens at all. It's the same thing like in Guardian of the Gate, they just look for the last keys and the Stone. Not much happens. At all.

Lia's anger and distrust (throughout practically the whole novel) towards Sonia got annoying. Learn how to forgive Lia. People make mistakes.

Dimitri is way too perfect. Seriously. This guy is way too perfect and I got me irritated at times. I dont get why everyone love him, he's so boring!

It's been a very long time since I've read the Guardian of the Gate but I thought Lia and Alice would fight or have an epic showdown, or something when they saw each other. Nope. I swear I thought they hated each other and Alice was going to help the Souls and Samuel get Lia but nothing like that happens. They just talk and talk and talk...and talk.

Oh yeah, one thing I thought would have brought major drama and excitement would be Alice but she's not that evil anymore. She doesn't make you a little bit freaked at all.

Now the ending. The ending is how you'd think it be, but it's not exciting or suspenseful. It was actually really boring. Maybe because I was really tired and sleepy but I had no clue what was happening in the ending.

Overall, if you've read the first two books in the series then you might as well finish it but the series and the book were a big MEH.

Sharon This is exactly how i feel about this book. I havent quite finished it yet and have read a few books in between as it started to bore me, though am pushing on to finish it as after reading the other two books I feel I need to finish the series.

Lauren I completely agree. Seriously NOTHING ever actually happens in this series. Such a good idea, so poorly poorly executed. (view spoiler)
