This is book two and the final, official book in the series, though there is a short novella that follows, and there are now two books the precede this series.
This was a good finale overall, but I didn’t like it quite as much as book one. I don’t know if it’s just me lately, but I felt like this ending was too abrupt for me. It’s not that the story is short. It’s more about the way it all gets wrapped up. It’s very fast, sudden, and unexpected, and then the story just breezes forward to address people’s lives in the after phase.
I guess I wanted a bit more of a climax, but instead, we reached the point where the peak of the story should exist and there was no big bang. Instead, the story just sheared off from the last high point before the climax, to the falling action that ties up loose ends and finalizes a story. Personally, I wanted a big bang up of a conclusion, with gradually decreasing tension until the story was wrapped up, but this book was missing the high point, which felt like a bit of a letdown after all that reading.
Despite that, I still enjoyed the book and series as a whole.
