It ’ s when he fulfills that task that discovers interesting news for Rose.Even though this is the end, I already felt as though not oo much happened.

It seeme like a game of, “ she remind me, she reminds me not. ” It wasn ’ t until the very nd of he ook that their plan to fight Magdalina comes into play and even that was short.Everything was tied together nicely, there were no loose ends, which was great.

Already, I elt the ending was rushed and definitely wanted more of a fight.CHARACTERSWhile Rose is much nicer now, I practically can ’ t appear to connect with her.

plot was clever and was well executed, but it ofte felt rushed or there wasn ’ t enough action.

My fourth read/listen from author C.S. Johnson was another interesting spin and expansion/re-telling of a traditional fairy tale, the thought of reading a “ fairy tale ” doesn ’ t especiall appeal to me but since I was gifted books# 2,# 3&# 4 in Audible editions I wanted to writ book# 1 first and I ’ m thankful I did.

Unknowingly, Theo split from Rose because of her rejection of him after their first kiss; also, he ca uncove and bring his aunt to see her father before his death ...

I as nevertheless happy to discover in the next book that Philip had been engaged to Rose 's sister the entire time.

Theo 's family problems were kind of nteresting.

I 'm just sorry Theo 's family had ha the result of a lot of it.

I hope som of that illegal magic trading will be quickly wiped out when Rose comes to the throne.
