With each book, I was never diappointed or was regretful for spending my money on it because it was as clear as day that Chainani had put every ounce of passion and care in making sure that his story was crafted near mastery with a strong, guiding outline along with the best themes that make us readers question and challenge ourselves in real life as we follow the characters' journey. What really amazed me was the amount of details that made this series ten times more intriguing. As I followed along the story (especially this last book), I found myself wondering how on EARTH Chainini managed to remember all the tiny hints of foreshadowing and the secrets as well as sparks of emotions that flew between each characters to have them all leading to paint a one big picture. He even managed to connect a very old foreshadowing hint that was mentioned halfway through the series into the ending of this last book - *SPOILER ALERT*
***...when Hort's wish that the wish fishes painted of his and Sophie's wedding with Agatha and Tedros as rulers of Camelot sitting in the audience (which was shown in I think book 3) indeed became true in this book where it ends with Agatha and Tedros' royal wedding and Sophie and Hort ending up together as well.
Besides the details that keep the readers on edge, another characteristic of this series that I immensely enjoyed was the character growth. Unlike some other shabby, poorly written and plotted novels, ALL (and I mean every character that are mentioned in the story) characters have character developments and growths that make them appeal to us as if they're real-life humans. What I really appreciated was that it wasn't just the main heroines who were looked and cared for - every character got their own story, their own development and trials, and that was what made me tirelessly read through the pages and believe with no doubt that Chainini grinded his soul into making these characters come alive.
I've become so attached to these characters through my journey with them over the years, and I'm overcome with flowing raw emotions when I remember how these characters started in the beginning, and how far they've come from then. With all their faults - Agatha's self-righteousness and sometimes bossy attitude, Tedros' hotheadedness and his tendency to be proud, and Sophie's vanity and greed -, they've only made me love them more for their complex feelings and personalities they obtain.
There's also so many surprises and twists hidden in this spin-off/retelling of the well-known fairy tales, which will keep you on your toes the whole time.
I'm so glad I got to enjoy numerous nights where I stayed awake, alive with these characters, and I'm totally excited to reread the whoe series again!
HUGE thanks and respect for Chainani - you've made many of your readers become a part of your story as we melded into the pages with the characters. Thank you for including us in this wonderful story.
For those who have yet to discover this series, don't hesitate to give it a shot. I promise you that it'll be worth it.
So, while not exactly a review of the book and its contents, I'd like to give a big thumbs up to this author for writing such interesting books. I think he has a customer for life in my daughter. Please keep writing more in this series because she can't fathom the thought of it ending.
Her bookshelf is now complete.
I thought this was an amazing book. I loved the story and there were many twists and turns in the plot as always. Altough this book was good (and I hate to say this), there are a few things that could be changed to make it better.
1. I felt like the plot, although it had the usual twists and turns, it felt a little boring at times. The beginning had a slow start and was hard to get into. Once you got closer to the end there were the page-turning plot twists but it was all crammed into the end.
2. I didnt like the end, it was a bit of a riddle/cliffhanger which for the end of a series just didnt feel complete. I felt like I still had questions like what happens with Sophie and Hort? What happens with the school and the storian? Maybe I wasnt reading or paying enough attention but this s what it felt like to me.
Overall, I think this was a good book that could be better. And although I've highlighted the bad parts, this book DOES have good parts. My favorite chapter is Snake Eyes. I wont give any spoilers but enjoy the book!
