Rating: 4.4 – a great (most likely) final book in the series
Opinion: This was a great addition to the series. I’m pretty sure this is the last book in the series as everything got wrapped up nicely. But the way the book ended also left the possibility for more books later on. The last quarter of the book left me worried cause I thought there was too much left to wrap up. But the book wrapped up quicker than I expected. The ending was still great and I loved how it ended. I enjoyed the fact that the author combined two of her book universes together. It took me a little by surprise, but the clues are cleverly placed throughout the book that it’s part of the same universe as the other book. Most of the the time I kept thinking that a character sounded familiar, but it wasn’t until closer to the end of the book that I made the connections. I loved the combination of history and fantasy in this book. The author does a great job in all her books, and this one is no exception. This book is the great last book, I think, in the series. I highly recommend this book for those who love fantasy and historical fiction.
