A fantastic finish to a fabulous series! Each book has been even better than the last as the action grows and the plot deepens. Of course the romance in this novel is just as wonderful as the first five; I loved reading about the growing relationship between the feisty Birgitta and stalwart Kristoffer. I really like how the characters are flawed to make them realistic, but they satisfactorily grow and mature as well. This book grabbed my attention and kept me captured from beginning to end, causing me to read late into the night as I immersed myself into the fascinating, creative world. I really liked how everything from the first five books came together; therefore, although this novel can stand on its own, I highly recommend reading the entire series in order. This book may be marketed to young adults but I promise readers of all ages will greatly enjoy it. Highly recommended!
