Well, I’m a little torn with this one. I think the series as a whole was amazing and deserves to be read regardless, but when compared to the first two books this third one falls a little short for me. It seemed to climax to nothing. It was the finale of the series and I’m left with questions that weren’t answered. That annoys me. I’m left to assume what happened rather than be told. The ending wrapped up in about two paragraphs and took in a span of 20 years. Yes, I might be exaggering a small amount… but not much. Seriously the last chapter was short, without feeling, took in a 20 year span and left me with unanswered questions. So, this seriously disappointed me.
I don’t want to keep harping on about it (and trust me I could), but I was insane waiting for this third and final book and to me it was rushed and a huge let down.
So my rating for the series as a whole is 5 stars because I recommend everyone should read it and get their own opinion of it and the first two books are amazing and deserve to be read… and I don’t want my thoughts of the third book to take away from the first two. On an individual basis though. 2.5 stars. Sorry.
