This is the last installment in the trilogy and in my opinion the best. It is different in style and pacing, and stands apart from the first two books..Show More » in the series.
Is it perfect, not at all; but it is a bearable vehicle for the story. It ties all of the loos ends together, finish up story spinets and gives a good The End to the readers.
I enjoyed the historical detour in this book a lot, and the letter forms added to the story a new dimension of "magical realism". The aggressive bigotry showcased in the "human" characters in this story written up in a way that helps the story go forward and it is not too all anointing as it might be expected.
This series was a true surprise. In the beginning I was venomously opposed the vampire story-line, it was so "twilight-like" but it is written so differently and with so much passion that the negative expectations dissipate by the end of the first book in the series.
So, if you want to try this series out, expect a lot of history, a good in all romance and some magic through together to give you a nice story to read through.
