Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world a door opens to allow in more light.
I'm just trying to light up the world as much as I can one SciFi/paranormal/fantasy/space opera/time travel book at a time.
Well slap my butt and call me Charlie, this was excellent... okay, admittedly I am shite with coming up with creative idioms but know what I'm pretty good at?? Gushing over books. And let me tell you, this book is worth the gush.
This is the 4th book in the Ren Crown series and I'll keep things brief for Discretion's sake. This book is another great addition to the series that swept me up and has yet to let me go. It is the perfect accompaniment to the three books prior. It delivers drama, angst, perseverance amidst seemingly insurmountable odds, creepy villians, inspiring friendships, an unfortunate love triangle and MAGIC... loads of Magic!
Even though this one is a tad slower paced than its predecessors, it in no way detracts from the overall splendor. The writing is still tight, the world developement is masterful and the characters are surprisingly relateable for such a fantastical book. AND that ending... WOW!!! It was packed to the rafters with action, emotion, betrayl, realization, coming of age or into one's abilities and yes there may have been a few... okay a tsunami of tears that I successfully shielded my ereader from... yay! All this emotion brimming to capacity in the wee hours before dawn is a lot for this girl to handle sans coffee BUT I am not so sleep deprived that I can not find my way over to book #5, the final installment to an amazing series!! Who needs sleep when you have an addictive literary distraction waiting one click away?
This series is so damn delicious that I'd give up a lot just to be able to sojourn amongst these characters in this world at will or whim.
I have laughed, cried and constantly dreaded its ever nearing conclusion. BUT alas, All Good Things and such. There are answers I NEED... not the least of which being "Which boy does Ren choose to sweep off his feet and magic off into the sunset with her?" "What's in store for the Bandits?" And of course "How does Stavros get his comeuppance?" Guess I'll find out soon enough.
The Destiny of Ren Crown... ready or not, here I come.
