    I’ve waited 14 months for this book. That’s a long fucking time. Look, I’ve loved every single book in this series and I was satisfied with how it ended. My only problem with it was that so much happened in one book and it was ridiculously fast paced and because of that we missed a little bit of character development and character driven plot lines that I wanted.

    that wanted to destroy life only to create it anew. Cleo, Magnus, Jonas, Lucia, Nic, Amara, each of them had their own war to fight and demons to overcome, while the clock was ticking, and the future of mankind was in the hands of a bunch of teenagers who sought their place in the world. The race for power and domination became a race for survival. Most of the scenes were

    , the

    thrilling, and you couldn't help but devour the pages, root for the characters and fear for them, tremble before the cruelty and the whims of the Kindred, shudder before the evil grannies and get frustrated over the riddles and half-answers of the Immortals. And it was

    Despite my love for the series and my satisfaction over the conclusion, there was something off with

    that I can't quite put my finger on. Maybe it's a

    was the masterpiece of the series, and everything that followed paled in comparison thereto.

    As regards to the characters, my feelings can summed in three categories:

    I think it's obvious that

    (

    ) and his relationship with Cleo fall into this category. He was his trademark sarcastic albeit cruel self, brave and loyal and fully in love with Cleo that made my insides melt. The dark prince and his golden princess

    gave me heart palpitations and filled my belly with butterflies, they were adorable and

    Alright people, I rarely admit that I'm wrong (because I'm always right). But, the time has come to revoke every bad thing I ever said about

    I suppose it doesn't surprise you that

    3.5 stars. That was a satisfying conclusion! Basically, everyone's being possessed at some point here...

    Cleo is fighting the water kindred for control over her own body, Magnus has a magic ring, Lucia is... ok, actually there are just so many characters and different storylines going on here that it would take forever to get into everything.

    as into the overall story as I wanted to be. I think there were just waaay too many characters I didn't really care about. I was mostly there for Magnus & Cleo and kept wishing Lucia, Jonas, and Amara would hurry up or go away. They each had like 10 extra characters hanging out with them and it started feeling like Game of Thrones where I'm just trying to find Jon or Arya...

    So I think the third and fourth books are still my favorite in this series, but this was a perfect ending!

    is a series I’ve been into for a very long time now. It has had its highs, and has had its lows, but overall I’ve always liked the series. Magnus Damora is one of my favorite characters in all of literature, and I will read anything where he makes an appearance. This series follows his point of view, and a few others, while they are first trying to reclaim kingdoms and then they are eventually trying to just save their world as they know it.

    I didn’t love the previous book,

    , but I five starred the two before that and hailed them as perfection. This originally was set to only be five books, so I assumed that maybe

    was just a filler book and that we’d end up with this glorious and perfect concluding novel. I was wrong.

    Instead I got 100 cases of deus ex machina, unnecessary angst, forced relationships, abuse apologists, possible queer baiting, and a weak conclusion to a series I used love. I was originally so excited to just be back in this world, but the more I think about the contents of this book, the more disappointed I get.

    Also, I know this review is on the negative side, and I’m sorry, I truly am. Trust me, I didn’t want to feel like this or have to write a review like this. It doesn’t bring me joy to drag the concluding book to a series that I’ve been very invested it. But these are my honest opinions, and I hope you respect them, like I do yours. Don’t start fighting in my comments, because I’m not here to fight and I will just delete, block, and move on. But make sure you go read my friend

    , because 1.) I love her and 2.) I buddy read this with her and she enjoyed it more than me.

    Please use caution while reading, or do not read this until you have finished this book! This is the final book in this series, even though we already have a spinoff, and this book for sure leaves a lot of possibilities for even more spinoffs, so I feel like I just want to do an in-depth look at everything, and I can’t do that without touching on some major plot points.

    And I thought we were going to stop glorifying abusive parents in 2018? No? Apparently not, because King Gaius has only done every shitty thing in the world for the last five books. He constantly has displayed how mentally, emotionally, and physically abusive of a parent he is, over and over. But we are supposed to encourage Magnus to love him and call him brave for it, while making all the excuses under the sun? Like, I’ll be over here throwing up. Miss me with all this abuse apologist shit, please, because I’ll never be here for it.

    And speaking of abuse, Lucia is such a terrible character too. I mean, it is no secret that I haven’t loved her throughout the series, but this book was actually over the top. Her being abusive to Jonah actually sickened me. And she wants to pretend she’s a selfless mom after the shit she said to an innocent baby? And like, maybe after your child was almost abducted once you’d learn to keep her with you, instead of pawning her off on another defenseless nursemaid? Seriously, the climax of this book was a damn joke, and it was 100% because of Lucia’s actions. I touched above about the deus ex machina, but the way she handled everything regarding her conveniently missing daughter was eyeroll-worthy. Like, you're seriously about ruin the world before you even have confirmation that an immortal has your daughter? What a fresh, hot mess.

    And the other big deus ex machina moments were from (it pains me to say this) Magnus and his magical, fix all, bloodstone ring. Like, when it healed him from being tortured, and allowed him to Uma Thurman/

    his way out of the grave, it was fine. But then, it just became such a redundant, fix all, and I hated it. Also, Kurtis had to be one of the worst villains I’ve ever read about.

    Please don’t even get me started on the convenient way to fix everything with the orbs. Like, I honestly am at a loss for words. But please, allow me to once again scream “deus ex machina” at the top of my lungs.

    And the ending with Amara really made me upset. I love and am happy that we get to see a bisexual, Nic, and a gay man, Ashur, be together and happy. But I get to live my life not knowing if Amara is queer or not? Write it on page, you cowards, or don’t fucking hint at it. I’m so sick of this, and even though I want to believe that Amara’s ending leaves her happy, exploring the world with a female lover, I will never know because it’s only hinted at a few times. Stop doing this shit. Give the rep, or don’t, but don’t tiptoe around it.

    And the ending in general… I know I sound terrible for saying this, but it was too damn happy and easy. There needed to be so much more heartfelt emotions. There needed to be so much more action, where I actually felt scared for these characters that I’ve been invested in for years. There needed to be so much more death. People hail this as the

    for YA, but you know what GRRM isn’t scared to do? Kill our favorite characters. Too clean, too simple, too unsatisfying.

    Overall, I just feel disappointed. I wish I wouldn’t have invested so much of my time with this series. I mean, maybe it is me and maybe I just grew out of this? I mean, I do notice myself more and more critical of YA fantasy. Yet, I still think this was a really weak conclusion. But I’m not exaggerating when I stay that Magnus Damora is one of my all time favorite characters in literature, still. And you know what he deserved? A better damn conclusion.

    Writing this does not please me. For better or worse, however many problems I've had with this series, I've stuck by it to the bitter end. Sadly, however, our farewell’s turned out to be… less than pleasant.

    The first and biggest problem I've had with this book was the lack of connectivity. I felt no such connection with the characters, the world or the story for that matter, and I was actually bored for the majority of the time. Aside from its own issues, I think I still harbour some residual resentment from the previous book,

    I was so heartbreakingly disappointed with CS that my enthusiasm slowly started to die because, well, how do you come back from the clusterfuck that was… that book? It did not and Immortal Reign only enhanced its flaws.

    I still fail to see the point of these last two books as they've completely ruined what little the series's had going for it.

    It wouldn’t be fair for me to end the FK chapter on a bad note so I won't make this a ranty review, however, there might be some salty words. I'm just saying, I was

    pleased.

    Let's start off with the two biggest crimes ever committed in this series as a whole:

    The petulant, waste of air and space Lucia, who honestly should have choked and died in book one.

    Her actions in this book didn't alter the horrible opinion I've already formed about her because, like a true Lucia fashion, her only purpose, as per usual, was to create an unnecessary tension to drag out the already weak plot. Everything that involved her felt overly contrived and I honestly couldn't give a shit.

    She never grew as a character, unless you count the opposite direction - growth. She was obnoxious, painfully unpleasant to read about and her incessant whining almost made me quit altogether.

    Felix could have redeemed this book or even the series and not having him as one of the leads, then completely destroying his character was ill-advised. I would have gladly sacrificed Lucia a million times over-or even Jonas- if it'd meant that we'd get more of Felix but no, Morgan Rhodes had to go and turn the one engaging person into a bland, one-dimensional character. smh

    Now moving on.

    What the living hell was that about? As if the overly used stupid magical baby wasn’t enough now there's a magical ring that becomes a go-to answer to all their problems? W... why? why on earth would you do that?

    My biggest problem with this series is that the characters are never given the space to fight their own battles. Something goes wrong, send some damned magical person or an object to fix it all. What a cop out! Why couldn't they suffer the consequences of their or others' actions and overcome obstacles on their own merits? There is so much I want to say but honestly, I no longer see the point. I am pissed off!

    Oh, not to mention his sudden newfound love for that psychopathic father of his. Do forgive me but I fail to see the purpose of trying to redeem him after all that man's put him-and the entire realm-through. Was it meant to be endearing? Were we expected to forgive and forget all the abuse? He was unhinged, physically mentally and emotionally abusive and redemption is the price he pays? Well, excuse me, but what a load of BS. Colour me not impressed.

    I wasn’t going to mention Jonas. I might have even forgotten he was there and as much as it pains me to say this, what did Jonas actually accomplish as a character? His only purpose was to serve as “the rebel” and even that he couldn’t fulfil.

    Why not just be frank about it and admit he was, without a doubt, the most useless rebel to have ever existed.

    He was rash, naive, senseless and always dove head first into whatever situation he found himself in.

    He didn't have an agency of his own and what's worse, as if making him utterly useless wasn’t enough, he was reduced to serving as Lucia's bitch both in this and the previous books.

    What a waste. Was it though? There wasn't really much to waste, now, was there?

    I didn’t like Amara when she first entered the picture but as despicable as some of her actions were, given her past, her upbringing and her father’s treatment of her, I could understand why she resorted to… well, what she did. So, what happened to the ruthless, take-no-prisoners, hardcore woman?

    I never liked her but compared to the others she was at least interesting who had so much potential had her character been handled differently. What I did not like was the abrupt “change” in her personality.

    She came to us reeking havoc on Mytica and its people then, out of nowhere, she runs back to her native land with her tail between her legs because she suddenly remembered she couldn’t "handle" it all.

    This was the woman who defeated the most ruthless king at every turn, killed her entire family and got him to marry her, move across the ocean to take over his kingdom, but now that things needed to be wrapped up, she suddenly gets cold feet, the reasons for which were forced upon us in an attempt to seal this entire chapter.

    Just as the book’s about to end, “she sees the error of her ways” (she really says that). Is that so! And you’ve seen this error in judgment just as we're about to depart, have you? Out of nowhere??

    It's not the change of mind I have a problem with, in fact, fantastic. How absolutely terrific that you finally see the error of your ways, we should all learn a thing or two from you but how absolutely convenient is what I'm saying. Doesn’t the timing just strike you a little odd?

    The plot was mediocre at best and the pacing felt completely wrong with chaotic leaps from one plot to the next. everything about it felt haphazard but the most enraging thing of all? The convenient way in which EVERYTHING worked out. Puff, just like magic, it just…worked.

    I mean, what am I even supposed to say to this?

    I predicted how the story was going to end from a mile away because the book made it that easy. I felt so let down with the path the plot took. There wasn't any mystery or suspense to keep my attention alive.

    There were no consequences, no increased in stakes and it didn’t help reveal the characters one bit because no one was put to the test. A genuine test.

    If there's a build up a situation, it’s only natural I expect setbacks, sacrifices, negative consequences, etc… and seeing the characters overcome these obstacles without any trouble at all not only bored me but frustrated me to no end.

    But all of that pales in comparison to how I felt about that perfect, overly satisfying conclusion. To say I despised it would be a gross understatement.

    You’re telling me, after all that’s happened, the fate of mankind hanging in the balance, everyone comes out happy and intact? I get it, YA authors don’t risk it when it comes to their beloved characters but… come on! Some semblance of believability would have been appreciated.

    At least some books have the decency to kill off some side or minor characters but MR couldn't even give us that. Everyone gets a happy ending. Sure, alright. Wonderful!

    I'm so pissed off, I don’t even know why I'm pissed off. It's something that I keep seeing time and time again, these unrealistic, lovey-dovey happy endings where everyone comes out betters off than when they started and I'm here wasting my energy and raging because, why!? Fuck this. I'm out.
