Top critical review
8 December 2018
I wanted to title this review Disappointing Finale but it would be misleading as it's more of a set up for the next series than a real wrap up of this one. I waited 2 years for this book and thought it would be worth the wait. Unfortunately it wasn't. While the story for the main characters did end, it was in a way that was due to convenient coincidences rather than a well thought out story. Many points that were raised in the previous books were just brushed aside in the need to reach endings that would please the readers. Lazy plotting despite an unnecessarily convoluted and winding story. However, the characters are strong and interesting enough that I will continue to read Clare's work. I just hope she tightens up her next series.
