I was extremely dissapointed with this book. It started off as a page turner like the previous ones. By the end, the book convinced me to drop the series for good.
There are two main reasons. First, the more objective reason: The whole "parallel timelines/second chance" plot twist was just a mess. I can't suspend disbelief for it, and I honestly don't think those two people can continue a relationship... From a certain point of view, they are in love with people that no longer exists.
The second reason is more visceral (and subjective). The author managed to turn Max into a coward bitch. After all Max has been through in the previous books, I can't believe she would be so set in leaving a small boy to be raped and killed.
#1 She knows the Chief's heart after loosing all of his children, and his desperate need to save this one.
#2 She's lost a child of her own, and mourned it.
#3 All of St. Mary already knows there are situations where you can save something (scrolls) or someone (dodos) doomed in it's original timeline. She can't take the chance for the Chief's heart and her own soul?
I was heart broken for the story....
