As I put this book away, I can think of only one word to express how I’m feeling right now… Satisfied.
Timbrel and Tony have been my favorite characters from this series and I have been looking forward to reading this book for so long! I knew they were going to have some issues to work through and I enjoyed “seeing” them do that. Yes, I got frustrated at them both, but that’s okay. There were some hard parts, several of them, where things got a little discouraging and knowing how it would turn out (I mean, come one! Doesn’t everyone know how this story will end?) was the only thing that kept me reading. But those parts were important and necessary for the characters to be able to grow and to grow closer together. And there were also a lot of good, funny, and sweet parts that I enjoyed very much!
Beowulf… What can I say? I want this dog! The more I read about him, the more I loved him. It seemed to me that he sort of played the part of big brother to Timbrel. Being there for her, protecting her, helping her, loving her, giving the other guy in her life a super hard time… 😉 Sometimes, he seemed a bit more like a human than a dog.
Usually, I’m disappointed when a series ends. And, after reading the last book in Ronie’s “Discarded Heroes” series, I was almost scared to read this book! But I wasn’t disappointed at all. I was, as I said earlier, very satisfied. I like how this book ended. And I’m sure I’ll be returning to it for a re-read in the future.
There is one thing I must say about Ronie Kendig’s writing — It is so vivid that I felt like I was watching this story take place rather than reading it in a book. I could see the things happening and feel the emotions of the characters. This really helps draw me into the story — it makes it more real to me — and I love that!
It’s official: This is my favorite book so far this year! 🙂
