(large contented sigh. . .) So completely happy with how this series ended. There was peril, anguish, love, confusion, lies, power, terror, basically it was simply sublime. The first book in this series left me wistful and yearning for more, it has been a long wait. Every single second was worth it, I love the characters in this book. Now I must say I did early on pick out who were the real conspirators of evil but it wasn't always easy to remain sure. I liked how the author used the whole evil plot thing that always seems to be part of every fairy tale and yet somehow make it turn into a happy ending. Well, I don't know what else to say since I am in love with this book. Give this series a try, you might like what you find.
