So I feel like I’m falling out of love for this series. Whilst in the beginning I was driven by the mystery of the tower and the universe, the constant side quests that are overly long and don’t even explore the characters much more or develop the world significantly further are draining on me. I loved the beginning and all the New York-Tower stuff, but the Calla sections started to really drag this book down. 
The ending was also very anticlimatic and honestly too easy for the threat they posed in the beginning

The very last bits that set up following books brought back my interest and I will for sure finish the saga. All the weirdness and mystery, and overall the characters are still interesting to me. I just wished we had spent more time with them doing interesting stuff rather than walk around with side characters that are barely developed and of little interest. 
Everyone in Calla felt exactly the same character 
Many of the resolutions were solved with plot conveniences and without weight or suspense. 

Overall it was an okay book with very cool moments that ended up being dragged down by overlong side stories and plot conveniences

En cuanto a ambientación, se me ha hecho un poco repetitivo con el anterior volumen. La trama y las intenciones se desarrollan correctamente, pero hay puntos en los que parece que se incluyen detalles y expresiones con calzador.

El siguiente libro de la saga continuará con la trama iniciada al final de éste, esperando que me satisfaga.
