I'm torn in regards to this book because there were parts that I really liked, and then there were other parts that left the nastiest taste in my mouth.

With the gut-wrenching ending of The Last Graduate, I wasn't exactly expecting it to be all sunshine and roses. On the contrary, I was expecting quite a bit of grief and further trauma, to be honest, which I got in spades.

Novak did a good job wrapping up many of the plot threads she had laid out for us; some of them had been laid out so long ago that they had easily slid under the radar. But how she chose to wrap up one, in particular, has had me grinding my teeth for weeks.

Full of twists and turns, the pace is good and it’s a really good addition to the series. A little info dumping in places but not enough to pull it down. Definitely recommend if you like the others.

Why is the last book in a trilogy always slightly worse than the rest of the series? I wasnt really engaged with the main character for a lot of the middle of this book. I also thought the ending was a bit cheesy and it didn't wrap up some of the things I was concerned about. anyways, onto the next
