If you’ve read the book that proceeded this one, you know that Rowan is back, but has resurrected without her memories. That’s fine, but in addition, she seems to have had a complete personality transplant. Nothing about her was the same strong Rowan we last saw, and actually she almost seemed to revert into a child. I understand there would be some confusion, but she was completely different, no spark of her old self at all. Which brings me to my next point of contention. I think too much of this book was spent chasing Rowan’s memories. I know that was a major thing, but the plot, itself, ended up lost in the mix. Esperanza’s attempt at revenge was… not very impressive. In my opinion, it fell flat, compared to the other books in this series.
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed this book quite a bit. It felt like most of it was spent tying up loose ends, but I enjoyed seeing the characters interact one last time. The author is a master story teller and does an excellent job bringing you into the world, mind and emotions of her characters. Perhaps my feelings about the flow would be different if this were a middle story. As it is, I guess I just expected more out of a finale.
I do still recommend this book. If you haven’t been reading this series, well, what are you waiting for? Go get them ALL, as this is an excellent series! 4 platypires for this one.
