Review: At first I was scared of reading this last book. Mostly because I thought It wouldn’t have been an ending book that wrapped up the series nicely. In my opinion, this book did a great job ending the series, but there was one thing that could have been done better.
With this review I will be brief with everything since this is the sixth book in the series and I don’t want to spoiler people for anything.
Morgan Rhodes’ writing is still amazing in this book. She’s does a great job with writing the character’s perspective in each chapter.
The relationships in this book do grow, as well as become finalized in this book. I thought the relationships were done well and didn’t feel like they were either too much or didn’t make sense.
The characters also do a bit more of character growth. You get to see them making these hard life or death situations they might or might not have to carry out. There are quite a bit of curve balls and surprises in this book that deal with these decisions.
The ending made me happy and left nothing opened. It’s one of those endings that not many people like for a reason, which i can understand, but one I was still okay with.
While I did love everything in this book. There was one thing that I didn’t like unfortunately.
There was a scene that could have been longer to make it feel life threatening. It at first made me feel that but then kind of disappointed me.
Overall, if you have gotten all the way up to this book in the Fallen Kingdoms series, then go ahead and read this book just so long as you go into it with not high expectations.
