The story seems to be ever increasingly rooted in Faerie. Grave magic did play a role in this although it was a small one. I miss it that Alex no longer seems to be straddling two worlds, but it may be a temporary break from that. Rather momentous things happened. Alex’s life will no longer be the same.
My feelings are mixed about how some things have turned out, but it is good that Alex’s path has become more clear. She learned much more about her magic and the history of faerie. Knowing the history makes it easier to understand what needs to be done.
The love triangle seems to have been resolved by default rather than by Alex’s choice, but I strongly emphasize seems to have been. Things went one way that strongly opened the door for one suitor, but something else important happened that may have opened the door for the other.
Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for giving me this in exchange for an honest review!
