Are you freaking kidding me!?!? Gahhhh! Another year!!! (Review to come soon…ugh!)
One month later…
Well, it seems I’m behind on my reviews. And sorry to say that this book is no longer fresh in my mind for me to give a more deserving review, so I’ll do what I can.
After what happened in The Fall of Five, we find the group lost and divided. Each person has to deal with what happened and each group has to find a way to get back to the others.
It was quite the adventure, and amidst the action, I felt there was a lot of character development from each of the Guarde, and friends. I really appreciated the insight into all of them, especially since they all could’ve easily fit into the 2-dimensional mold. The authors (yes, there are two of them if you didn’t know) took their time in helping us learn about them and learn about what they’re feeling, and basically how they’re changing. At times, I got a little emotional, I’m not ashamed to admit – although I can get overly emotional when it comes to understanding characters and whatever sorrow they’re going through.
But that’s not the only side to the book. They also kick some major butt. There’s definitely some really good action scenes throughout, which is an excellent staple for this series. And some really good surprises.
With that said, I will say that if you had any questions that you wanted answered from the previous books’ events, you will not find it in this book. I’m hesitant to call it a filler book, mainly due to reading more about the characters, but considering that you’ll probably finish the book with more questions added to your list of questions, it could most likely be called such.
Nonetheless, it is part of a (now) 7-book series, and I’m looking forward to reading more. Despite knowing that it’s not going to be finished in six books, I’m pretty glad that they’re not trying to squeeze all that they want to into one more book if they feel it deserves to be told in two more.
