This was good, though I didn't like it as much as some of the others in the series. I like the two MCs, and how much they almost balance each other out, especially with their arrogance and almost coldish personality they have. Though I'm not sure if that will humble them or boost their egos even more haha. Even though I liked that about them, I also had a hard time feeling the chemistry between them. I don't know if it is because they are both older characters so they are both supposed to be really mature, and I guess, less passionate, but it made them seem a little less caring and loving towards each other than I felt like they should be.
I did like Lucien, though his personality definitely changed from the other books, and I'm not sure I cared for that too much. I liked him a bit more when he was nicer, instead he did a 180 and had a pretty cold aura about him. I also didn't care about how much his past love life and sexual encounters were brought up. It made his relationship with the heroine seem lesser. I did like the heroine though, especially for the H, because she never took his crap and she didn't give into him right away. She was definitely more smart and mature, sometimes that was good and sometimes that wasn't.
Overall, this was still a great story, and I'm glad we finally are at the end of the elixir plot. I really enjoyed this series, and it's such a unique world with beautiful writing. I'm super excited to start Ben and Tenzin's story though. I feel as if the entire elemental world is a build up to their story because they are such amazing characters. But for now, time to revisit my faves Baojia and Natalie in the last novella of the series!
