I enjoyed the book in general, but it wasn't as good as the first volume. Not even close. I didn't like Nassun and her POV. I was a bit annoyed by her - but I liked the other POVs. Also, I don't know what to make of the ending. It was ... a thing. Oh, I don't know. I don't hate it, but I don't love it either. Anyway, it didn't seem to win me over that much. But one thing has thankfully remained the same throughout the series - the very specific storytelling, which I really love. The writing style is a bit complicated (you read a bit slower), but I love that too. I already learned to love the protagonist in volume 1 and she didn't disappoint me either. But as a series finale, the book was unfortunately not as satisfying as I thought it would be and for me it's also the weakest book in the whole series.
