The most heartbreaking moment was realizing this was the final book in the series. I had no idea, and it traumatized me when I reached the end of this world, despite the satisfying ending.
Someone should have warned me. The book should have come with a disclaimer, something like:
“This is the end of the series. Prepare yourself for epic feels followed by severe withdrawals. Dude, seriously. It’s going to get ugly for you. Have chocolate on hand. Alert your friends that you’ll be ignoring their texts. Explain to your dog what bereft means. Side effects include elation, devastation, and moping. Hangover symptoms will lead to an inability to start a new novel.”
Otherwise, it was gorgeous and exciting.
