Wow…I…..…It was……sigh. Simply, amazing and honestly the most magical experience I have had to date as a reader.
The emotions portrayed by Laini in this final installment in the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy (learn more about Book 1 here) are beautifully raw and as deep as an ocean, and I believe this is what elevates this novel into something truly special. Whether it was sorrow or joy they resonated so strongly in my very soul that I would stop reading and just breathe it in, let the tears fall or a smile take hold.
As it turns out this isn't just the story of the Seraphim and Chimera's survival as there are a few new and pivotal strings added to the tapestry, woven expertly together with the old elements and characters we love then played out on both Earth and Ertez. You won't believe where this story will end, I'm still trying to piece my mind back together after it was thoroughly blown! Without giving any spoilers all I can say is that you will not be disappointed, this final leg of Karou's tale has all of the magic, romance, action and heart shattering twists of the first two.
This series has been an absolute stand out in my favorites of all time and I am beyond depressed to see it end, my only advice to those of you who haven't enjoyed it yet would be to reread books one and two - I really wish that I had refreshed my memory and postponed this bittersweet ending as long as possible.
