A satisfying end to the series. Really, I have to admit it. The ending was rather perfect, with plenty of hard sacrifices which Aileana have to make and eventually resolve quite nicely to give a good ending. All the while, making this world a breath of fresh air in its worldbuilding and take on fairies.
By the way, Aithinne is my favorite out of the series. The more I read her, the more she grows on me, and the more she makes me smile. Quite sad to see this end really.
And I really appreciate how Aileana has to make a difficult decision, and nothing did indeed come easy for her. And everything has its price, and really it was enjoyable to see her finally get an ending that I find was satisfying.
The ending was rather nice and fulfilling. And it did go in a way I never really expected it too, seeing as how it went back to what we knew. But in a way I never thought it will, and surprising me but at the same managing to have all the characters survive and some with unknown ending too.
But finally, the author is willing to make the difficult decisions and the characters really do suffer. Although at times I was rather bored, and at times the pacing was really fast and the pages were flying. But to me, this series is good. It is unique when compared to most, with its own folktales and beliefs. And also, it does take what we know and doesn’t go down the usual route. So, I find it rather refreshing and do recommend you to check it out. Naturally, start from the Falconer.
