In this epic conclusion to the trilogy, Nat and Wes go on a journey to find the Rift, save the source of magic and defeat the Drau, the pirates, and the RSA—but at a great sacrifice. Wes is dying, and as he’s rotting the Drau will let the rot “cleanse” the source of magic, dooming Wes forever. Nat and Wes discover that the source of the magic lies in the Drakon—the key to the Blue, the protector, the soul of the world. But in order to close the Rift, a great sacrifice is needed. In the words of the sylphs, death is life, and now the worlds can be reborn again.
This book was sadly not the epic conclusion that it claimed to be and I am both disappointed and unsurprised. I made it about 20 pages in before I had to put it down for weeks because of how ridiculous it was and then picked it up again and made it to page 50 before deciding that I just cannot put myself through the torture. I was simply unable to finish it because of the, honestly, atrocious writing. It just was not great. I’m not sure what happened but I think that I am probably too mature for this series and this book has just pushed me over the edge with how much I can take. I read to relax* and enjoy, not too stress and struggle. I do enough of that at school. Hence why this will not be a long post – it’s more of an update as to why I just could not go on no matter how hard I tried.
*in the figurative sense of course…
I did not enjoy this book and I don’t think that I would enjoy forcing out a full length review for what I did read and so I am going to stop here. It got 0/5 stars and frankly it deserved less. If you think that you want to read it go ahead – I would reccomend this series if you are less cynical, mature or as old as I because then I think that it could be a decent read at least. Maybe not a great one, but also not a shit one.
Live long and Happy Reading,
