This was yet another great book in the series–everything I’ve come to expect and more.
I’m not sure I’ve ever loved a female protagonist as much as I love Grateful. THIS is how to make a likeable and strong yet realistic female character. Other female characters often have unrealistic physical capabilities and fighting abilities, or they have nothing and are hopeless; but Grateful’s strength lies in her mind (she also has magic, but she wouldn’t be able to solve her problems with magic alone). I’m just overjoyed to have found such a great female protagonist, and she didn’t disappoint. In fact, none of the characters disappointed, and I like how realistically gray they are; no one is too perfect, and I’m never really sure who to trust, even this far into the series.
The action picked up even more in this one making it harder to put down than the last. The mystery unfolded with such perfection and clarity that words cannot do it justice. As usual, the show-don’t-tell was on point. Seriously, I’m majorly impressed with the writing in these books.
If you enjoyed the first two books, you’ll like this one, too, as they seem to be getting better and better!
