Spellbound!

The story continues as Maerad and Hem struggle to reunite and solve the mystery of the TreeSong. Maerad is a powerful yet tragic character. I held my breathe waiting to see how the tale would end. I loved this final book and was completely satisfied with the conclusion....

the first book was excellent and it went down hill from there. this one gets fairly boring. cadvan disappointed me and hem was a pleasant surprise, he became a worthwhile character here. maerad finally discovers that cadvan loves her at the very end and once her eyes are opened NOTHING CHANGES until the epilogue, and then it still is not a satisfying conclusion.

    Rushed and Disappointing Ending

    The fourth book of the series was a bit of a letdown. The climax of the story felt rushed and really kind of ended with a wimper instead of the expected explosion. I felt as if the author rushed to finish the story and just kind of gave up in the last chapters. The storyline conclusion had such potential but never reached expectations. After the previous three books made such a buildup regarding sister and brother's explosive powers, the fourth book dwindled to a less than exciting conclusion. I was left feeling as if the story was unfinished. Am still glad I read the series but feel as if I invested a lot of time in the story and characters only to be let down. I would recommend The Ranger's Apprentice Series, The Fablehaven Series and the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series.

    This book was alright...

    Seriously, this book was a bit of a disappointment. It was so long, and nothing interesting happened until the last fifth of the book. The writer used too much detail, and spent to much time explaining the background with no dialogue. Don't get me wrong, the descriptions of their travels and new characters was interesting, but there was just too much of it. I got bored during some parts. The first three books are a lot better.

    But, the last fifth of the book really was good! I thought it was a bit too short to end the series with, but it was alright. I almost cried when the procession of the dead walked up to Maerad and Hem and forgave them or honored them- especially when Hem saw Zelika! I also liked that the author wrote about the "history" of what happens after the epilogue. It was interesting to read about what Maerad and Hem did after they saved Annar.

    Three stars out of five.

    It was a beautiful ending of the series of books but it could have beeen better.

    The story is touching, but the events happen too fast. The reader doesn't have the time to be cought in the atmosphere of what is going on, before suddenly something else happens. There are some key moments in the book which should have taken more time evolve properly in order to get the reader spellbound. Also there was a lot of confusion in this key events. Too much time was used to explain the confusion of the character and not enough, giving the reader a view of that character's feelings. Not allowing the reader to be able to relate to the character and enjoy the book even more.
    But all in all the story was pleasant and very entertaining. It takes your breath away.
