I could not have asked for a better book to finish my 2015 reading goal. This series blew me away, and it will be one I recommend to my library patrons for years to come. The characters are fantastic and superbly developed, the settings are fun and adventurous, the play on the base fairy tales is novel and clever, and Levana is one of the best developed villains in YA literature history. This did have a bit of a Hunger Games copycat vibe towards the end, which was a tad disappointing, but overall it was an exciting and satisfying ending to the series. And they all lived happily ever after.
