And I have to say - I really liked it.
It is a hard thing to finish off a series you have built over years. I have read final installments that left me frustrated and empty and wanting more.
This wasn't that way. There was just enough detail to keep me until the end. But, in the spirit of the series - I really don't understand it all. I LOVE that!
I also love the old enemies became allies to fight a bigger enemy. That some of the characters didn't make it - and some did.
My only complaint is that it's really hard to pick up a series a year after you have read the others. All the new readers are at a huge advantage - they can read these back to back. I know I lost details and understandings because I just didn't remember all the past details.
