โ€œIt is entirely possible to be alone in a crowded room. Your solitude only compounded by the faces around you. The presence of others serving only to remind you of how lonely you truly are.โ€

๐ŸŒŸ Creativity, Creativity , Creativity! That is the one thought that I had in mind throughout the whole book, if not the whole series. I mean as readers we read a lot of books in the usual format and a change can be good once ina while. I am always looking for unusual reads and this was the best among them.

๐ŸŒŸ I mean, we have emails, we have messenger chats, we have different languages, ship designs, handwritten notes, pictures, drawings and they even managed to put a freaking kitty too! Who would have thought.

๐ŸŒŸ This is officially my favorite trilogy of all times now, because it has everything! (Maybe until the third Six of Crows book is out). Plot wise; this has many twists which are so good, although some are predictable! The pacing is fast as the unusual format makes this a fast read despite the huge number of pages it has! The characters are great and they are funny, relatable and fleshed out. The romance is good too!

๐ŸŒŸ Now I am stingy when it comes to 5 stars ratings but I gave all the books in this series 5 stars because I was so damn happy while reading them, were they perfect?
As much as I am ranting above about how much I enjoyed almost everything, and you know how critical I can be, I can so NO! this is not perfect. These books are always hard to get into at first and they are a bit confusing until you are fully immersed in the story. There were a few boring pages too. And the actual rating should be closer to 4 or 4.5 stars. But who gives a darn. I was enjoying this immensely and it gave me a feeling which many books failed to. I will still give it 5 stars.

โ€œI am not good. Nor am I evil. I am no hero. Nor am I villain. I am AIDAN.โ€
๐ŸŒŸ A special shout out to AIDAN who I feel there can not be a proper review without me mentioning it! AIDAN was my favorite character in the series! I like when characters are not Completely bad or good, when they are logical and driven by a motive, AIDAN is the representation of all of the above.
๐ŸŒŸ And as all good things have to end, this series had to end, the ending was predictable but it was the best ending it could get so why not?! I would prefer if this series finished because extensions usually suck! I just saw they are working on a new series which is already among my 2019 most anticipated releases. Thanks Amy, Thanks Jay ๐Ÿ˜€

๐ŸŒŸ Final Rating: 5 stars
