I'm glad Quinn finally chose Will. Though right after they started courting they seem to get colder. Idk I just can't feel Quinn's love for Will. But I'm very happy that it's clean, finally a YA book that doesn't go on and on about how the boy and girl are hot for each other. The romance is real between Quinn and Will, no lust. But still feels like there is something missing. Mostly on Quinn's part. I do hope she becomes friends with Zander again and that he forgives her. I mean sometimes relationships just don't work out what can you do?
I'm excited to see what Quinn's choice is gonna be. It is a tough one. I don't think I'd be able to leave my family if I were in her place. So we'll see.
As for this 3rd Kingdom Dovelnia, that was a nice twist. You see their king is bad. Not all his ideas is bad but most of them. Lets see;
“They believe that a king should be someone with strong power over his people, that the people aren’t wise enough to decide on their own how they should live their lives… they require a king to interpret messages from the Maker and enforce those messages in law. In Dovelnia, the king has absolute power, and he rules through appointed religious leaders who own land and govern the people in small townships. The people become very dependent on these leaders."
Now the the king interfering with people's choices, turning them to slaves maybe? Or to serve him for his own agenda, now that is unacceptable. But the idea that the "Maker" would choose one person to deliver his messages concerning matters of the faith to the people, that is very normal. Otherwise each person would interpret the faith into their own point of view and the next thing we'll have is thousands of denominations, cuz each time the faithful disagree on something they end up splitting and splitting and it never ends. So yes, they need someone to lead them in matters of the faith. Just like when Moses lead the Jews, and all the prophets who succeeded him.
Thankfully this is just fiction, otherwise it would be a disaster right?! ;)
P.S. After finishing the fourth book which was extremely disappointing I decided not to finish the rest of the series.
The good: Again, well written with no obvious grammar or spelling issues. I cared about the characters and felt invested in them. We FINALLY get a lot of answers to many of the mysteries that have been hinted at in the previous 2 books.
What I thought was weak: As I mentioned, this didn't feel as "plot driven" as the previous books. There was too much of her mom avoiding her. This never felt like a real response to me and felt more like a story device needed to accomplish what the author wanted to accomplish. Basically, the mom was acting like an eight year old. I just didn't buy the excuse that the mom gave her about why she wouldn't talk with Quinn or interact with her.
Overall, this book felt more like it had to answer a lot of questions and setup the final book of the series. I did enjoy it enough that I'm purchasing the next (and last) book of the series. Thus, I rounded the 3.5 stars up to 4 stars (since Amazon doesn't allow 1/2 stars!)
