A lovely, bittersweet ending to a series that turned out to have a lot of depth to its characters given the initial premise. Very satisfying, and darker than previous entries in the series. With this book, Hines tackles elements of the tales of The Snow Queen
and Snow White and Rose Red
, among others.
Hines wraps up most of the loose ends for the finale, including some going back to the first book. Definitely recommend this series if you enjoy a good adventure story with likable female protagonists.
