really liked it

While I still really enjoyed this book and read it in a single day, it was definitely my least favourite in the series. The magic system goes pretty much haywire here, there's a lot that I was confused about and most importantly: while I love a good slow burning romance, I also want that to properly pay off and that decidedly did not happen here in my opinion. You think I read three books about these characters to be happy with a single page of romantic conclusion? Nope.

This is still one of my favourite YA fantasy series ever, I love the setting, the characters, the plot. All of that is true for the first two as well as this one, but I really was hoping for more in the romance section here. Lots of swooning and angst but no actual action, and after three books of pining (mostly on my part) that was quite unsatisfactory. An epilogue would have been honestly enough. I don't think that's asking for too much. Excuse me while I go be salty somewhere hoping there'll be a follow up novella or something :P
