Sydney, Adrian, Rose, Dimitri and Lissa will always be characters that created an indelible impression on me. I guess the best I can say is that this wasn't the worst finale I could imagine. Mead was still doing the writing so that makes in leagues above many other genre authors. It just wasn't amongst my favorites in either series.
I did pin point what I haven't liked for the last few from this one. Adrian's need to exhaust all his spirit or to power through when he's drained. He doesn't care what happens to him, just that people need him. Which isn't so bad but he refuses to listen to reason and I finally figured out that it drove me nuts.
This doesn't look like the end for the VA world. Even before I read the note in the back I had a feeling things weren't done. While it may be a while as Mead takes break from this universe, we will see another series. And I'm not sure that will be one I will try out. We'll see.
I'm not as sad as I thought I'd be after finishing this series. I'm a bit relieved. It doesn't compare to the Vampire Academy series. But I crossed the finish line and finally read the last two books.
There are two main plots in the Ruby Circle, one being the search for Jill who has gone missing and Sydney and Adrian are willing to risk everything to find her. Sydney and Adrian are forced to stay at court for their own safety from the Alchemists, but they are more worried about Jill, so when a clue shows up, Sydney and Adrian didn’t waste time forming a plan. Sydney and Eddie go in search for clue after clue leading them closer to finding Jill, all the while avoiding the Alchemists. That search leads them and eventually Adrian, Rose, Dimitri and other allies to Jill and who has her, leaving them with a new challenge to rescuing her.
The second plot is where Adrian finds himself on an incredible discovery regarding spirit, one that will change their world. While Sydney is searching for Jill outside of Court, Adrian remains as her cover story but hopes to eventually join her. He finds himself in a groundbreaking discovery on spirit. Nina, another spirit user, is trying to find her dhampir sister Olive who has not only disappeared but has made it difficult for Nina to find her through spirit. Eventually Adrian learns the truth about Olive and he and Sydney, Rose and Dimitri go in search for Olive themselves. What they find is both incredible and impossible but when spirit is involved, I guess anything is possible.
Here are a few teasers worth mentioning. Dimitri’s father is relieved. A character dies. A number of characters from past books make cameos.
Overall, the Ruby Circle was beyond amazing with mind blowing, jaw dropping surprises and discoveries, passionate romance and intense, heated action. I loved this book. I am saddened to see the series end but it has been a wonderful journey. Richelle Mead is an amazing writer who has captivated me with this world of magic, romance, friendship and adventure. I fell in love with the characters, the romance, the plot and plan on re-reading the series in the future.
