As an avid reader and young adult I love the excitement of this book but most importantly I love the finality. It leaves off in such a way that you are not left wanting or desiring more details of the main characters- Rose, Dimitri, Lissa, and Christian. They all have a happy ever after inasmuch as a bunch of 18 year olds can have a happy ever after and while the story can certainly be expanded on it isn't wholly necessary. There are a few plot lines left hanging- namely Adrian, Eddie, Jill, and Sydney that you wonder about in the end but those are picked right back up in Mead's Bloodlines series (also amazing, go check it out!).
As a parent of young girls I absolutely love this books message- girls can kick ass too! Yes there is plenty of romance but the heroin, Rose, is an amazing role model for young girls everywhere. She is tough, she is independent, she has her priorities straight, and she is fierce. This is not a story about a girl who sits around whining when her one true love leaves, she takes her life into her own hands and owns it! I cannot wait for my girls to be old enough to read this and have a great literary role model to look up to!
Still, Rose's mental tie to Lissa gives us far too many "cheat" scenes to show us what's happening back in the Court. Far, FAR too conveniently, Rose manages to see every significant event going on—even though she's supposed to be attending to her own tense situation. --Despite that once what she views takes place over one long day, when in her time she's only viewing for a few hours. Oh well, every Mary Sue must be able to bear a lot of convenience as long as it benefits her, right?
Having a cast of thousands gets in the way sometimes, but the author does make an attempt to stay with a small group of central characters. The mystery is solved, various bad guys are dispatched, and HEA ensues for most. Too bad Rose never found any kind of maturity (hey, maturity is un-cool!) and remains pretty much the same at the end of Vol. 6 as she was at the beginning of vol. 1. I enjoyed Rose's mother asking what the heck was going on back at the academy between her daughter and Dimitri. VERY good question. A satisfying ending to a series that had its definite ups and downs.
