The ending made me cry. It also left me handing. Throughout this whole book, nothing turned out as I thought it would and that's a good thing. I would love to have this series in paperback when its all done, maybe signed, to put on my shelf with my other favorite books.
Megan steps up time and again, showing her strength and wisdom. And her vulnerability. She is, after all, a teenager, and half human. I know I’ve said I identify with Megan, but I also just love her character. She’s brave, but not foolish. Tough, kind, and smart.
The whole gang is in this book, plus people we’ve never even met. Tengu, Norwegians, Orgers. Jack-In-Chains, is, admittedly, an interesting side character I’m sure we’ll see more of.
After one of Megan’s diplomatic missions, she’s set on a quest for the Cauldron, which dispenses infinite food and helps negotiations. On this quest, she goes through dreams, is sent to the underworld, and manages to convince now only the dwarves but the light elves to at least go to the negotiations.
And, she gets the cauldron!
What I found most important about this book, however was the bonds around Megan. Lani, Justin, Cassia and the cats, Ashling and the Count. Over and over, she reaffirms her bonds to them. not always in big ways, but in ways that matter, and they to her. The cast only gets closer and it adds to the elements of the book.
The end of the book leaves a lot up in the air, and I am loving the tension as I get ready to read the next book. Jeffrey and Katherine have kept me hooked, and I’m so excited to be on the last book, though I’m dreading the end, as per my usual.
I knew I was going to love this series from the first book. One of my favorite things about Cook's writing is that his continuity is spectacularly on-point. Characters go through intense circumstances and they respond and react in ways that change them and mature them so that the person on the other side is distinct from the one who started out.
I love how, in all of this fantasy and spending incredible lengths of time in a dimension other than the real world, Cook does not neglect Megan's relationship with her parents. It becomes a bigger deal in this installment than in the previous two, and as a character, she handles it beautifully. It is very clear that she loves them both, even so far as they don't actually know each other, and the attention she gets (or doesn't) get from both of them also plays an important part in the development of the plot.
Speaking of "developing relationships" one cannot ignore the marvelous "ship" between Justin and Megan. Their interactions are so adorable they will melt your heart—and yet the respect they both maintain is wonderful—I love that Cook ensures that the reader falls in love with him first, so that Megan doesn't have to waste precious plot time pining after his scent or doubting his love for her, and nonsense like that. He's pledged to her, but they don't make it awkward or uncomfortable. He's adjusting to modern life every bit as much as Megan is adjusting to life in the Fair realm.
The stakes in this plot are higher than ever, as the "villain" this time isn't any one nefarious enemy or despicable entity—it's every evil thing and every monster in every culture, all together. The description of the Fomoire straight-up CREEPS. ME. OUT. If this series ever becomes a movie or a TV series, that will I think be the part where I cringe and look away, because even the descriptions in the book sent chills down my spine! It was great to see more cultural diversity now, too, as the King and Queen of Fairie hold a war council and all of the "goodies" from myths and legends all around the world come together to fight their respective "baddies" who are escaping the Fomoire.
The ending, though... (*distant sobbing*)
That clinched it. I know it's not the end of the series, but darned if I almost don't want to read the last book—not because it was horrible, but because it was SO GOOD I don't want it to end! The last scenes of the book are glorious and breathtaking—and the last big event broke my heart. I couldn't believe such a wonderfully compelling author to be capable of it, but he did. It happened, and there's no going back. There is only marching forward with the inevitability of Time.
I cheered, I giggled, I gasped, I reveled—if you're looking for good, solid fantasy with plenty of fairies and magic and brownies (the Fae, not the dessert... Though I don't doubt Kerr could make some AMAZING desserts!) and Celtic mythology in spades, along with excellent moral characters who win you over from the start, and a perilous challenge that calls everyone to band together to defend the good and the right—look no further than the FAIR FOLK CHRONICLES!
