Lookie here, I made it through! Can you believe it? And that last installment was even the best one, at least regarding text flow. I managed to get through quite nicely, in comparison to the others. Maybe it was because I thought the plot had to thicken at some point, which kept me going at speed, but I got left hanging big time! There was no excitement, zilch suspense. They all talked about dread, but there was no feeling it. It was all... flat, just like book one. Especially that ending -- totally unsatisfying! It felt totally forced, just to get it over with, and there was no emotion in it whatsoever, although there should have been tons -- screams, tears, hearts puring out and breaking..! Well, I guess you could say it was ended in style of the whole series, but sadly that's not a compliment, which is the reason this is getting such a low score.
As far as character development goes... what's your guess? Right, not really.
Lia was going around in circles quite some, while her sidekicks at least made some progress in their friendship. Not that any of them had any fighting spirit, that they tried to get stronger, bind their energy together or whatever. Nooo... that would've been totally not in style. *facepalm* They were all talk, all worrying... Lia even managed to think about not thinking/worrying so much, can you believe that? And even though she decided to go forward with Dimitri, since she was about to die (!), even that fell short and wasn't exciting or drawn out at all. I felt like she had her development in book two, and that was it.
I would not recommend that to readers under the (felt) age of 40. My mom enjoyed them...
