    This review is informed by having finished all the series but I'll just repeat the review in each oneOverall I'm glad to have read to the end of the third book I thought the story was worthwhile and well done the character development definitely improved over the series and the magic system was pretty original I would really like

D bonds with her old friends but with Isidro incontrovertibly changed and her own wounds still fresh things can never be as they once were Burdened by all he's done at Kell's command Rasten knows he cannot at. I really liked the first two books but sadly I just did not feel the connection with this book and the ending just bloody bothered me Maybe I am being a prude or whatever but the idea of loving everyone and being with everyone in your family and having god only knows who s child just did not work for me Anywhoo that is my main problem with the end to the trilogy Oh also i found I did not like Rasten turning into a sook Other than that the writing was great and I wonder what Jo Spurrier will write next
