Lia Weaver And Her Friends Have Finally Driven The Farther Soldiers From The Frost, But All Is Not Settled Yet Ann Mayor And Her Father Have Found Themselves The Target Of Violence, The Villagers Are Fighting, And Jonn S Life Hangs In The BalanceWhen An Unexpected Enemy Surfaces In The Frost Wilderness And Endangers Lia S Family, She Is Faced With A Terrible Choice, And Against Thorns Orders, She Sets Out To Find Answers In Aeralis my rating for this series decreases towards the ending it is a good thing that this is the final book.i am not sure if i mentioned this before, but this series could have ended earlier.there are a few twists surprises which i like but the epilogue has ruined my good feeling towards this book if the epilogue could squeezed view spoiler 20 years hide spoiler Aeralis was mostly a good ending to the Frost Chronicles, although some of the things that happened seemed a little pointless One thing in particular regarding someone s parent had no effect on the plot at all and was just a side thing added in I like who Lia chooses, but I have mixed feelings about the epilogue I didn t hate it like some people did, but didn t love it either I liked the glimpse into what happened and how they had a family and who ended up with whom until I got to the end That s where the mixed feeling come in view spoiler The epilogue reminded me a lot of the one in The Clockwork Princess Lia marries Adam at the end of the book and we are told they have a family Then when their oldest child is 20 Adam dies from pneumonia Gabe never married and so she ends up marrying him after Adam dies I think I would have preferred it if Gabe would have just moved on and found someone else to love and Adam would have grown old with Lia I did love that Jonn and Ann fall in love and marry Throughout the whole series I wanted happiness for him hide spoiler I said in my review from book 1 that the world is what interested me in this series prodded me to continue reading, that is the mysterious Frost, Further s land, the mysterious creatures, a land far away in a portal, etc, because the characters were simply horrid, the dialogue was frustrating, and the plot was almost nonexistent Despite my better judgment and extreme irritation that a scattered 30% or of each book seemed to recap its predecessor, I read all the books expecting something, anything to redeem the fragile fondness I harbored for book 1 Sadly, the series only grew intolerable Two main plot points existed in this final book the sibling s sickness the MCs concern and overthrowing the dictator everyone else s concern just like everything else that s ever happened in this series, somehow those two very different goals seemed to coincidently, conveniently converge for each party Aside from the too convenient aspect, it was also boring, slow, and the getting there was a big case of much ado about nothing Then there is the romance eye roll , sigh, cough Omg this love triangle is the most exasperating thing I ve ever seen Dear author looks, glances, unspoken feelings, thickness in the air, hand gestures, nods, blah blah DO NOT EQUATE TO DIALOGUE Aside from the maybe 5 sentences the trio speak to each other the entire book r to their love, their dialogue consist of just such nonsense as thicknesses in the air and quick nods of understanding over words never f ing spoken This isn t a romance It s Chinese torture I didn t root for either if the guys in this love triangle because I found them both unappealing for different reasons, one a near mute that valued duty over love just too many times and the other a polar opposite of the female MC, but I get that some readers will be pro one or the other The MC made a final choice in the last of the book, but the author let her have her cake and eat it too over a 20 year epilogue that I think was a complete appeasement cop out I ultimately feel that I cannot find a single redeeming quality upon to recommend this series. I was ready for this series to end, so I m glad this was the last or perhaps I wouldn t have continued I didn t ever really care much for the love triangle, which still dragged on through this final book And that epilogue Oy I could have done without that. I spent the first half of this book feeling a little bored I liked the story but it just wasn t exciting The writing was good and very smooth, Ellison definitely knows how to write well.I really didn t care for the lack of development of the romance and then boom its tied into a neat bow at the end I really really didn t like the epilogue Talk about disgracing Adam s character I don t believe you can cram 20 years in a epilogue I don t mean a glimpse of 20 years later I mean 20 years of life into the stinking epilogue Geesh My favorite character was Korr He was so complex and I love complex characters.Overall, it was a steady read that had some exciting parts towards the end. Goddamn epilogue Not that I particularly enjoyed the book in the first place but the epilogue was the straw that broke the camel s back I was gonna give this 2.5 stars but I m taking back my half star for the epilogue. Should have stopped before the epiloguethe epilogue wrapped everything into a nice, neat package with a bowcompletely ruined it for me. Keeping it short and concise I regret the time that i wasted on this series.This turned out to be one of the most absurd, boring, convoluted, time wasting things i ve ever read I kept hoping that this would get better, and it never did view spoiler We re told in the end, that adam and Lia get married, and live together for about twenty years, and then he catches pneumonia, and dies And that s itlet s bring the other contestant HERE S GABE Wait a year..okay, you can get married hide spoiler Awesome book, but the epilogue ruined the series Agghh
