โ€œSome people leave too much space behind when they are gone.โ€

๐ŸŒŸ To be honest, book extensions usually suck and I was skeptical when I went into this one. I was afraid that it will be slow and nothing much will happen in it… Turned out I was right!!

๐ŸŒŸ The series was going in the right direction in book 2, it was a good improvement on book 1 but this once again, felt like a debut to me! This series was supposedly a duology but has been extended into a 4 books series, a fact that is obvious when you read this one.

๐ŸŒŸ Not that the story has changed very much due to the extension, because there are some things that have been planned since book 1, but this didn’t add much to the story. I believe Books 2 & 3 could have been better as a single book without all the unnecessary details.

๐ŸŒŸ There are certainly new characters development in this series, there aren’t many new characters, we have the previous cast. Still, this development didn’t blow my mind :/

๐ŸŒŸ The plot was very expected for me since book 2 and I thought we will have something grand and shocking but this didn’t deliver it. I just thought that it became kind of repetitive and slow that made it less interesting for sure.

๐ŸŒŸ The writing style is not bad, but I liked the previous balanced fast pacing that I felt missing in this one. I just wish it hadn’t been extended.

๐ŸŒŸ Summary: Although I didn’t LOVE this one, I didn’t HATE it. I just thought it was average or a little bit below average. I expected something more but never got it. I just hope that it gets better again. I ended up giving it 3 out of 5 stars!
