Another series down. I actually completed a goal I set for myself, completely forgetting I was going to be finishing this series. Oh well. Nothing wrong with that!
For a series ender, this was great. I got the closure I needed and even though I would love to continue reading about Ella and Penn, I am satisfied where the author left them. I have no further questions about anything that happened but at the same time, I can’t help feel like there was something missing from this book to give it that full 5 (five) stars. I’m not sure what but it’s bothering me slightly…
One of the major things I look for in a series in character growth. Anything bigger than a duology (not that I am saying that they can’t have character growth but with trilogies and series, you are with the character for a while), there should be some major growth and Ella had such growth. She went from a docile pet who was meek and scared to someone strong and not afraid to get hurt. I always adored Ella and in this book I felt no different. From the first few pages, I was blown away by everything she did. She recognized her faults and did her best to overcome them. She didn’t rely on her love interest to save her. She was all around a great heroine!
The plot was also well done. This was a clean up book, so to speak. Everything that happened in the first two books were wrapped up in this one in a big way. There was quite a bit of action, more so then the first two. But it was not overdone.
Overall, this was an excellent series. The concept of human girls kept as pets still bothered me at times but once I started to get over that (or at least look past it), the series actually turned out to be pretty good. I highly recommend this trilogy!
