I read the first two books in this series a while back and really enjoyed them. The world building, story and characters are just so creative, I was eager to read the final installment. This book did not disappoint. This book was a very intense journey filled with tragedy, heartbreak, suspense and love. If I had to choose one word to describe this entire book, it really would be intense. Laini Taylor is an amazing writer and storyteller and I’m very glad I’ve read these books. This book has a vast array of characters, twists, and enough action to keep you completely interested and hooked in the story. I experienced a lot of emotion in this book, happiness, fear, anticipation, horror, sadness. Really, it was a phenomenal story and I hope to re-read the series again.
