Having read the previous two books in this trilogy, I was really happy to have the opportunity to read the third and final book. While I didn’t remember everything about the previous two books, it was fairly easy to pick up this book and enter Nym’s world once more.
While reading, I felt that a lot of time had been skipped over between the second and third book. I thought it was good to see that Eogan was suffering from what had happened in the previous book, though, instead of it just being glossed over.
I wasn’t sure what to make of Myles’ character… even by the end of the book. I thought it was good to see that most of the characters weren’t fully good or fully bad, though, and Myles was a really good example of that.
It was interesting to see Nym having to return to one of the towns where one of her previous owners lived. Although I did start to understand more about her past as the book went on, I still found I had some unanswered questions by the end… and her dreams seemed a little disjointed.
It was nice to have the opportunity to see more of Nym’s world, but I would have liked to see her interacting a bit more with some of the minor characters. Kel was really sweet and I enjoyed seeing him with Nym… but I felt I didn’t get a chance to get to know many of the other characters individually. While I understood that it was important for the people as a whole to survive, I would have liked to see a bit more of the individuals.
There were some really good elements of foreshadowing in this book, as well as a lot of good bits of tension. I did feel that many of the characters who died weren’t shown enough to allow me to care about their fates, though.
I did think this book was well-written and it was really easy to read. While I was somewhat disappointed by the abrupt switches between first person POV characters, I did want to keep reading this book and find out what would happen next. It’s disappointing that the trilogy has come to an end.
