For a series ending, this was everything I wanted. Well, nearly everything. I'd have liked to have my heart broken a bit more. Certainly there were times I thought it would happen, but in the end the characters lost more than I, as a reader, did. That aside, the stakes were high, and the villain was sufficiently (disastrously) clever and an excellent match for Iolanthe and Co.

There's not a lot I can say about book 3 that didn't say about books 2 and 1 previously. This is a solid fantasy series with sweet romance that doesn't detract from the main plot, and full world building. There are a few deus ex machina moments throughout, but for the most part I remained wholly within the narrative.

I recommend this series for fans of YA and fantasy, especially when the fantasy has a bit of British history thrown in.

I really enjoyed the first two books in this series, but I unfortunately thought this final one was the weakest installment. That's not to discourage series fans from reading it--you'll definitely want to find out what happens to Iolanthe and Titus--but the politics and magic is super complicated and hard to grasp if the first two books aren't fresh in your mind, and the dialogue, which has always tended on the melodramatic, felt more stilted to me. I still really like the concept for this series and the characters, and would still recommend it for hardcore fantasy fans, but I wish it could have maintained the momentum from the first book through to the end.
