Top critical review
The ending that could have easily been in epilogue of the last book
Reviewed in the United States on May 29, 2019
After being disappointed in where things left off in the last book, I was excited to read this to get more closure. With that being said, I can’t honestly give a full review of the book because I skipped over quite a bit.
There were at least 3 f words (from the parts I read) which I found annoying because even if it’s a “new world” language like that doesn’t fit the time period imo, but to each their own.
I was more interested in what happened to the main characters than any history—with how long the other books were I felt like I had enough background.
The section with new characters was interesting, but honestly was not necessary I felt. However, I liked them much better than Evangeline’s section. I felt she already had her happy ending and would have rather more time to be given to Mare, so I skimmed over hers to get the main idea.
Mare and Cal’s section takes place two months after the 4th book and is in the last 20ish percent of the book.
In the end, readers will be happy with the idea of Mare and Cal ending up together, but will be disappointed if they were expecting any descriptive details with dialogue as to their life together, which is summed up within a few paragraphs.
