After learning the identity of who Quetzalpetlatl really is, I found that I did not like her character very much in this novel. She seems like a totally different person from the previous novels. She is very selfish in the beginning, and does not care how her abilities affect others. Later on, she does realize the consequences she has made on others and tries to fix it with no avail. Eventually, she becomes the character that I recognize in the series. However, I also found her to be a weaker character than she was in other novels. Throughout the novel, Quetzalpetlatl tries to come to terms with herself, and she begins to lose faith with Quetzalcoatl, whom she has been faithful to. Still, I did not like Quetzalpetlatl’s actions, and thought some of them may have done more harm than good.
Overall, this book is about faith, love, and friendship. There was very little character development in the novel. Most of the supporting characters that we have come to know over the course of the series make very little appearances. I did find the Native American mythology to be very interesting, and the author makes the world come alive. The Bone Flower Goddess raises more questions than answers. While I prefer the previous novels, The Bone Flower Goddess was a solid conclusion to the series. I recommend this series to fans of The Star-Touched Queen, Lily of the Nile, and Child of the Prophecy.
I finished reading it in about a day, which is extremely fast for me, since I have two kids and a very busy schedule. I got so drawn into the story almost right away that I kept losing track of time and I wound up staying up very late last night, telling myself I would read just one more chapter, again and again.
One of my favorite things about this book was Mextli. He is one of the most interesting, complicated characters I've read about anywhere, and I just wanted more of him. That would be the main reason the book didn't have a full five stars. I wanted to see more of him. The story with him didn't feel complete to me by the end. I very much hope the author will write more about Mextli in some of her other work!
A lot of this story was very sad, a lot of terrible things happening. This probably is not surprising to anybody who has been reading this series up to this point. I was tearing up near the end. That said, the ending, aside from Mextli, felt perfect. There were revelations that I really didn't see coming at all. There was one that I admit I suspected in the previous book, but I had incorrectly decided I was wrong. The conclusion of this book still had an air of sadness, but it felt complete.
I'm always a sucker for a good love story. That's what this is, in the end.
Also Quetzal and Maya's son is adorable and B.O is still as annoying as ever,
I also think there was an opportunity to have Mextli say "Yeah its bigger on the inside," in one part of the novel. In other words should've been a Doctor Who ref there, but thats just the Whovian in me talking lol. Apparently Aztec Gods have Time Lord tech....at least some lol :P
Also Maya is awesome! Just completely awesome, especially at the end of the novel with the final showdown.
Would completely recommend the entire Bone Flower series 10/10. Awesome series!
