This book pissed me off(at first). Like royally pissed me off. So much that I even considered to stop reading sometimes during the first couple of pages. Because it was just too clichéish for me, but I am happy that didn't last long & the book took off & I am happy I continued reading. There was so much going in that book & sometimes you feel like there is too much or too many things going on, but that never happened during Shadowfever. You can really tell KMM put thought into the series. And all the things that happened during this book had been foreshadowed in small ways during the other books. Still most things were a shocker, but when explained made perfect sense. The Fever series is entertaining as a whole & I look forward to reading more by KMM.
