This was a nice conclusion to a series I really enjoyed!
I just really like these characters and their relationships. That’s what really made these books for me. I am going to miss Noah, Julien, Trent, and Ciaran. Julien especially had a lot of growth over the course of this series. I didn’t even like him in the first book, but now that I understand how he was raised and see the person he’s become by the end, I think he’s pretty great. It was also kinda fun getting to see all of Julien’s brothers this time. The author did a good job of making a whole bunch of characters who all felt different but still realistic.
I was a little disappointed that the two couples were apart for most this book (as in, Trent and Ciaran were doing one thing, Noah and Julien were doing something else). I liked having them together in the last book, seeing their unlikely allies/friends dynamic. I also felt like there wasn’t a lot of time spent with Trent and Ciaran, and the time we did spend with them was mostly with one or the other, unless they were having sex. I just would’ve liked to see a bit more of their relationship and how it’s growing, since this was the last book.
This was a satisfying ending though. Everything was wrapped up in a nice way. The story was good. Maybe a touch anti-climactic for a final book and a whole war / coming apocalypse, or whatever it was, since it was more a series of small things happening rather than one big battle, but that’s not a big deal to me. It just meant we got to enjoy time with the characters and see more of their relationships and growth.
Overall, this was a fun series that had fae, witches, a nice balance of silliness and heaviness, sweet romances, and, most importantly, wonderful characters I came to love and am going to miss!
Fans of Books 1-3 in Tess Barnett's Tale of the Tuath Dé Series. Anyone who likes paranormal romance that's fun and a little silly but also gets deeper as it grows, mlm romance, fae, witches, and some heaviness and tension that's balanced with sweetness.
