In Last Sacrifice, Rose has to make a choice about the two men she loves and she has to try to prove her own innocence while trying to help her BFF become Queen. The book is a wild ride from start to finish but there is one thing that you know early on in the book and that comes as no shock to anyone- even the characters- at the end. Knowing the result of that choice from the get go took a little of the excitement out of the book for me. It also didn't help that I liked the guys equally so the one who got the boot... my heart just broke for him. BUT that character is going to be a focus for the new spin off, "Bloodlines," which is slated to comes out on August 23. Last Sacrifice was still an awesome book and even though the end of the series is bittersweet, I still think this may have been the best book in the series. I really feel like I shouldn't say much beyond "this was the best book" because there were SO many story lines being tied up in this book that it feels like everything in the book is a spoiler. Just go read the books!
Last Sacrifice earns 4 Fairies for a good ending to the series, if a bit bittersweet.
