What I Liked About It:
I’m going to be honest, after the events of Beautiful Chaos, I expected something spectacular. Because that was what they set me up for. Not to say that this wasn’t good, I would probably put it at the level of Beautiful Darkness. But with Beautiful Chaos knocking my socks off, I expected a little bit more with this one, and I think it could have delivered. However, I did once again enjoy the “Southerness” of it all, and also the extra dimension to a few characters that could definitely have used it.
What I Didn’t Like About It:
After all is said and done, there are definitely some characters that could have been fleshed out more. They were such an important part of things, particularly the Sisters. I mean, I got an impression of who they were, but with this being the last book in the series, it’s not usual to introduce an idea here that you can’t flesh out. I felt that not everything was tied up, and that bothers me. It was an unsatisfying conclusion to the series, and some things were wrapped up too neatly.
Let’s face it, if you’re at the point where you’re looking to read this book, it’s because you’ve already made a commitment and read the other three. So I would say read it for that reason. But note that I was disappointed by the payoff. . .
