1.0 out of 5 starsRushed & Missing Chapter between 28 & 29?
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on May 29, 2023
SPOILER ALERT! Don’t read if you don’t want to know!
Does anyone else notice that the end of chapter 28 she says it was too late. Twice. And the chapter ends making you think that Easter is too late to use her magic to save Phoenix and Killian and Ruby and Emerald from being dragged down to hell by Bazixal and Phoenix tries to use her power but the last line says “All I Knew Is it was too late”
Then chapter 29 it’s all of a sudden Bear (like WTH Shannon? Way out of left field - there hasn’t been any chapters from him in the entire book and then there’s this tiny little piece with all kinds of holes) and then at the end of the chapter Ruby comes out of nowhere and saves him from the wolves and then Phoenix is suddenly there to save the day? How? What happened? How did she escape Bazixal? Chapter 30 is 3 months later and I expected at LEAST an explanation of how they so obviously DIDN’T get dragged to hell at the end of Chapter 28….but there was nothing. What. The. Frack? Is there a missing chapter in not aware of? I can only say I am so disappointed in this series. I feel like this isn’t the first time in this series I have felt like things were not explained at all and the end was very sudden or cut off with no real explanation with a happy ending chapter that explains the final scene and how they won. Not only that but there were SO MANY things I. this book left unexplained. Like Mario - he came as she asked then what? He was dusted along with the rest of them? Kinda anticlimactic? Was he good? Bad? What about the whole “I need all the abnormal to fight together on a team to win?” In the end JT was just the kids outside fighting? Really? Little kids? What about her “team”? They were pretty much left out of the climax entirely except for maybe Easter. Shannon must have wrote this under a lot of pressure to put out in record time for it to have so many holes in it. I feel like I am sitting here wondering what the heck did I just spend my money on? Not the kind of writing I have come to expect from Shannon Mayer.
