Review –

This was one of the books that I was waiting for with bated breath and i can’t believe that it was so anticlimactic!!

The other three books in The Raven Cycle had been building up the anticipation with each chapter and to have it end the way it did I felt that the author had let me down, big time. I had become so invested in the Raven Boys, Adam, Gansey, Ronan and Blue, the girl who held them all together. While the book was entertaining with its robot bees, real wasps, a cloven footed dream girl, a powerful demon, tree spirits,fast cars and a couple of highly anticipated kisses, the ending leaves as many questions to be answered as we started with. I was so shocked when the last page came and thought, “surely that can’t be all there is”, but it was.  Too bad the author felt she needed to leave every reader in limbo.

Review –
The author did a wonderful job in tying up every event or detail in the trilogy even though there were countless plot twists. That being said, I thought this book was slow in places and in others had too much detail but all in all it was a FANTASTIC series and I have added Noah Shaw to my Book Boyfriends List.
