I liked this series; it’s apart of a great universe that I really enjoy. As we follow more characters and they get their own trilogies, there is a bit of reuse (same animals for familiars and supernatural types for love interests), but still good.
One critique of this particular series is the writing of communication within the plot. Just because the FMC learns something (and by proxy the reader) does not automatically mean the love interest learns it. There weren’t scenes presenting critical information to the love interest but it was assumed that since the reader knew, then everything could progress. There are some pretty major miscommunication and information exchanges needed between character that never happened in this series. This happened all the way up to the end of this book; the main character learns a “why” which the love interest needs to hear. There would be no emotional connection otherwise, but he never gets it. It was pretty vital info to pass along. Even 1 line that said “and I told him everything” would have sufficed at that point. So, I hope to see more exchange between characters that are pursuing relationships not just between friends.
