    Worst series I have ever read.

    The books were way to short, really the 3 books could have been just 1. Its not well written and very very childish with way to much cursing for a young teen book. Hands down not even worth the lil money.

    It all comes full-circle!

    Like I've said, this series has been like visiting the world of Lisa Frank--turned upside down and violent! In the third and final installment of the beloved faerie trilogy known as Shimmer, secrets are revealed, questions are answered, and as usual in the world of Faery--or, at least in Kim's world--Nothing and no one are who they seem. If I get into specifics on it, the book will be spoiled. But I can say these things: I loved the fact that there is constant action, the pacing was exceptionally executed, and we get more death....Jensen is truly human in this volume...yeah, she cries, and I never thought she would do that...she just seemed too strong to cry from her heart. She is willing to do whatever it takes to save those she loves and it turns out that she has hidden feelings for someone I would've never suspected. This series was my first about the world of faerie, and I hate faeries as much as I hate AHEM...sparkly vamps, but that's for another day. I look forward to reading Tether, Miss Spencer. 5/5 Stars cause I can't give it ten. Well worth the wait.

    Better than books 1 & 2

    This last book (#3) was far better than the preceeding books in this series, amen! However, still exhibiting "story character" flaws, I was able to maintain a sence of space and time within this book, unlike the first two. Good reads, just slightly frustrating, and way too short. I think the author missed a golden oportunity. This could have easily been a series with at least six to eight 400 page books. If only the time were taken to be more comprehensive. Too bad :(

    more from this reviewer

    A perfect ending,...

    The last of the trilogy, Oathbound is easily my favorite of the series. The plot, the storytelling, the characters, everything was superb in this novella. As much as I enjoyed the others, this one pulled me even farther into the world the author created. As in classic fae stories, nothing and no one is as it appears and that kept me glued to this book.

    Jensen had a lot more humanity in this book than in the others. In the others, she was so caught up in all of the changes and the unknown that it was as if she, as a character, just didn't have it in her to really feel. That is not a criticism because I felt like it fit the story. She was overwhelmed and emotionally numb from it all. But in this book, it was like these things finally hit her and flooded her, and made her feel. It added a nice layer to the story, giving it a bit of non-fantasy normalcy.

    I am sad to see this short series end. It was a fun read that let me escape. There was a lot of the fun and whimsy that fits the fae genre, including the use of flowery language and descriptions. But the author knew where the line was and didn't go over it. There was a lot of darkness, too, that balanced it all. I truly enjoyed this book, and this series!

    Must Read!

    I loved this trilogy from the moment I started reading Shimmerspell. I couldn't put any of the books down because I just had to know how they ended. This was an excellent take on faery, and not at all what I expected. This trilogy was phenomenal. So I hope to see more from this author, with as many twist and misdirects as possible.
