I've been so busy lately with a new house and a new job that I haven't had much time to read, but I made time for this one.

I thought I loved everything about Taylor's other series, but this book was just a masterpiece.

What a worthy ending to an overall entertaining series.

Honestly, this book had me questioning why I bothered and actually seemed to like the previous 2 books of this series. I'm not sure if it was bad timing (trying to rush through to bring back to the library in order to keep going with ToG now that I got Kingdom of Ash), or if I really just disliked everything in this book and what it stood for.

I really need to start taking notes as I read, especially monster sized books such as this (pun intended). I loved the ending so much that I really feel like I loved the whole thing, but I don't really remember everything that happened. I'm also wondering if there will be a sequel at some point? :)

On a more personal note...

On a more personal note...

Today is my last day after 3 years at my current job. My sister worked for the company and made me aware of a temporary full-time position making decent money while I was going to school. Even though I knew that the plant would be closing, I was hired on the spot with a one year contract which then was extended to another year and eventually the company hired me outright to ensure that I would have benefits and a severance package once our time here was complete because they knew how hard I worked and how much I did every day. Most people at the plant have been working here for 30+ years, and even though I didn't get to know everyone here and even though we all knew that this day would come, it is beyond depressing. As each person makes their rounds to say goodbye and good luck, all I can think about is how bitter I am.

For some reason, I enjoyed this one a lot more than I thought I would.
