One of my all time favorite series!

I just love Val, Zav and the rest of the characters in the Death Before Dragons series, it's one of my favorites! This ninth book, Secrets of the Sword III, is no exception and it was an awesome conclusion to the series. I love the snark that Val gives Sindari and Zav, and everyone else, it truly makes me laugh out loud. I love that Val is capable of defending herself and her loved ones, but I enjoy it when Zav lends a hand (or a tail). There were several parts of this book that really stood out to me, my favorite took place between the Queen and Val, it actually got me a little choked up.
This was a great book, I delayed reading it because I didn't want the series to end, but I can say that if this is truly the end, it went out well. However, if the author wants to write another book or two...or dozen...I will keep reading them. Val still has a lot to learn about her sword and could vex many enemies while exploring other worlds with Zav in a few stand alone novels (hint, hint). This series is one I highly recommend and it's worth the investment! I’m really sad that it’s over.
