What can I say... I loved this book... though I have to say that there were times when I thought the author was going to choose a path that would leave me extremely pissed off at her. Instead she left me shedding many a tear and thoroughly satisified with this book and the series as a whole. Alina and Mal have taken a place as one of my very favorite couples from the world of fantasy. Also, through this trilogy and the Six of Crows duology it has made the world of the Grisha one of my most favorite worlds. Part of me feels as though I lived this last book, the author had my heart-racing at times and my emotions high and full. Even at this point like ad hour after I finished there is still a tingly feeling throughout my body. All in all, this book was the perfect culmination of this series!
