This book was fast-paced and entertaining. The story wasn't entirely predictable and the repetitive crude remarks were more limited in this latest book.
However, the ending totally ruined this whole series for me.
The author has a way of making the dangers of magic very poignant. But the other side of that coin is not as well explored. It is hinted at through Prince Caspian and the FL but ultimately does nothing to fix the genocide laws or allow reward for any type of redemption. The fact that Prince Caspian resolved everything deus ex machina style robbed the main characters of any agency and it robbed the series of its climax. The fae seem beyond evil (ala all half I breeds should die, except my own child because I'm King). In fact, in hindsight most of the characters were so deplorable that I didn't really care that they died (criminals, power hungry, self absorbed, and/or genocidal). Only the MCs seemed to strive for self actualization or redemption. And yet, the MCs only reward for their efforts is a lifetime of servitude that might include further risk of harm. It was just such a terrible and unfair turn of events that it ruined the series for me.
Hence, 3 stars.
The story of the Noswraith’s creation was touching. I no almost don’t want to read the prequel just because the retelling in this book made so much sense.
I liked how the Prince’s description of Nelle’s spell-writing was accurate and unvarnished. (Self-awareness improves certain story-lines.)
Anyways, I thought the series was amazing, and the ending was unique enough that it didn’t trigger my, “ Ugh, yet another B&B retelling” reflex. In fact the ending really suited the characters.
Soren’s story was deeper and darker than I expected it to be. The reader finally finds out who the mysterious Helenia is. Soren truly was a beast when he was young. His character development is further reinforced through his constant selfless devotion to Nelle.
Nelle is just such a spunky, courageous character and I enjoyed her tenacious spirit. She saw Soren for the changed man he was and loved him despite his flaws. Her relationship with Soren’s maimed wyvern is adorable. The wyverns in general are all adorable. I love their “meeps” and general dog-like qualities.
I wasn’t sure how Soren and Nelle would get out of their hopeless situation at the end. The author did such a good job with placing the two in such a tough situation, that I almost didn’t believe that the two could possibly have a happy ever after. Such a good twist of an ending. I won’t give it away.
Thank you, Sylvia, for another lovely romp through one of your colorful and magical literary fairytale worlds. I had a delightful time exploring this world with Nelle and Soren.
