As I said above, I really struggled with Amalie’s character in the beginning. Again, I understood where she was coming from and why she did the things as the hood as she did but I thought she was being naïve. The Queen is struggling to provide for Gaule but there was La Dame and then essentially a coup to get rid of Alex and then magic was reintroduced so yeah… that was a lot of changes for a kingdom and now the Queen has to deal with it all. So there is much that goes to trying to placate everybody but I never thought the Queen was doing a bad job. And as more background information was given and knowing that the Queen always regarded Amalie as a daughter, it was mind blowing that Amalie never approached the Queen but just did her own thing. Then revelations of why Amalie was so cold towards Tyson didn’t make sense to me. Tyson is so transparent and she really believed that about him? It was just tough to understand. About halfway through the book is where I think Amalie started to change and thank goodness. The book became way more enjoyable and I flew through the ending. I really enjoyed Tyson’s part of the books as well. There was some development on his side but not as much as Amalie. It seemed that way because Tyson had the whole series to show the development and I really liked that. The ending of this book was perfect and I love the way all of the characters from the other books tie into this one.
Overall, Noble Thief by M. Lynn was another good entry into this series but I did have some issues with it. I struggled with the first half of the book but it was due mostly to Amalie’s behavior. As the story continued and Amalie’s character developed more, I found myself flying through the book. There was so much I really enjoyed with it and I’m glad the answers of Amalie and Tyson that has plagued me since Glass Princess were provided. Halfway through the book was where my interest was really caught and I really enjoyed the rest of it. This story was definitely the perfect way to close the series of this generation. The way everything is combined and brought together was amazing. I highly recommend this book if you enjoyed the others and want really good closure. I highly recommend this whole series if you enjoy retellings and combined worlds told through different stories.
