Pretty good ending to the series. As usual full of action and mystery about Wicked, plenty of wondering whether this whole story is one new game. You get to see the world outside of the Trials and understand why the Trials were brought about. I was upset about a couple of the deaths in this novel because it didn't seem fair but the ending was interesting although a bit open-ended. Romance isn't a focal point of this novel so for those who like more action and adventure this last installment will suit them just fine. I did think Thomas can be pretty narrow-minded at times, however as the book went on and more of his past came out it was easier to understand why. This was a really great read and I recommend this book to those who have read the first two.
