It was good, but it felt a bit rushed, they did far too many things within the space of one book. I think book 2 is my favorite of the series. I LOVE a happy ending, but I think it would have hit harder if they both died or lost their powers or something (I respect that its YA, so the happy ending is basically necessary)

An extraordinary final book in the Scholomance series! We finally get to meet the families of a lot of the characters from books 1 and 2, and see more breadth of the characters we've gotten to know. El's Mum in particular, it was brilliant to finally meet her!

The enclaves are so much more complex even than I'd anticipated. El and her fellow graduating classmates are in that awkward intermediate state of being out of school but not yet being treated as adults.

So many questions were answered in this book, and yet there are quite a few plot turns that surprised me.

Another great entry into the series. The book gets off to a slow start because I forgot how hard it is to like El and the new setting and circumstances takes some getting used to. However, once you're in it the world building is great and the relationships are just as lovely as ever.

When they inevitably turn this series into a movie I only hope they don't split this book into 2.
