It could have gone better
em 6 de junho de 2017
It is not a bad book, but is not as great as it could be.
The author tried so hard to give a happy ending where everybody important is alive and happy, the enemy suddenly is a fool and easily killed, even considering he is supposed to be the most powerful creature there is. And every trap that he makes, does nothing to the main characters.
Innumerable situations happened in which there should be repercussion, I mean, one character was slashed in half! But, a couple days of rest should do the trick. I don't sense the fatigue or fear or any of the other emotions associated with a war in any character other than Feyre or Rhys. The soldiers are barely a number. The war on itself felt too fast. It could have gone on, if not elongating the book, but maybe making another book.
On the first book of the series, Feyre is transforming (and cannot decipher a really easy riddle, damn girl!). On the second book you see her adjusting and accepting herself. But on this one, nothing. Learning more about her position I would assume, but still, quite shallow.
Understand that it is not a bad reading, I mean, I read in one week! But after the a few days and you start recalling the book, you find those little things and contradictions spoiling it. During the book actually, as you see the author intentions, you stop carrying if the character is diving head first in a volcano, because you know that some trick up his sleeve will save him. And it does!
