    Interesting Conclusion

    3 1/2 stars.

    I'm not going to go on about editing too long...the same issues were here [then/than, separated compound words, wrong words, wrong pronouns, too many pronouns, possessives, etc.] as in the previous installments. I stopped correcting and just highlighted this time. However, these were still speed bumps in the story.

    Style note...I mentioned this in a previous review, the narrator should refer to a character by their formal name and/or one familiar name. I understand that the author is very familiar with all of her characters, including the narrator; however, to me it seems like the author was tired of typing the proper names in periods of exposition. I understand excitement during the writing process leads to this type of thing, but then during editing the name should be spelled out.

    Again, it's okay for the characters in discussing each other or talking to each other to use nicknames and even different nicknames, but the narrator is not a part of this intimate group...the narrator is more of an outsider providing color commentary for the reader. It was quite jarring to go from reading Finvarra throughout the book to Varra. Plus I don't think that the King of Draicc would appreciate cutting his name in half.

    Speaking of names...this only really stuck out in the last installment. Bryg, Brid, Bran, Breck...lots of "br" names. And how come the one book with the pronunciation guide tells us Brid is Bree when in this book we get her full name as Brighid? Yes, it's a tiny, minor detail. You can say the same about my previous paragraphs. I should just suck it up and read, right? Sadly, I am detail oriented and these things stick out for me.

    As for the story itself, this one had a few spots where the story lagged. A few more spots where I was really frustrated with Lily or Connall or Larkin with regards to their relationship(s). Thankfully the men finally manned up and agreed on a good plan.

    The story really is very interesting and finished with a relatively satisfying outcome. However, there are unanswered questions. Was Flynn satisfied with Lily's decision and punishment? What will Finvarra require of her? (That deal was never finished.) Where is Breck?

    There is an additional however...while I was intrigued enough to read the trilogy and prequel, I don't feel the need to continue on with novellas and back stories and additional adventures. To me this was about light vs. dark and fulfilling the prophecy. That is done and I'm good with how it ended (with the exception of those three unanswered questions above).

    I am glad I read this trilogy and found it very interesting how the author brought the three worlds together. Lily and her friends made some very hard choices along their journey; it was an exciting tale. Again, I am glad I read it. Thank you for an intriguing tale, Tempest Avery.
