it was amazing
bookshelves: steampunk, urban-fantasy
Read from September 09 to 11, 2012

Solid 4.5 stars. An overall satisfying end to the trilogy although I could continue to read about the protags and their world. These characters certainly captured me.

Negatives? The vast majority of the book was about the war and planning the war. The epilogue-explanation ending felt a bit rushed. We don't get the disposition of the vampires in Paris and other parts of Europe and are left to assume that dealing with them is still to come. The same could be said for the Americas and Asias.

I would have liked a bit more personal peek into the consummation of the relationship, I certainly waited patiently enough for it and felt a bit cheated when it was handled in a fade-to-black reference.

This story is epic fantasy wrapped in a slightly steampunk/ vampire/ magic wrapping. But it's epic fantasy for sure.
