I will not review book by book in this case but I will say that the final book in the series did not disappoint. The author brings the conclusion to the story beautifully.

What l liked about the series most is the way she writes, and how she creates and builds a new world and how she creates multilayered complex characters. By the time I finished House of Comarré, I managed to read all of her other books as well, and I loved them all.

I cannot say much about the content without giving spoilers, but I can say that I had a happy feeling when I finished reading the book and I was sad to part with Chrysabelle and Malkolm. I continued with the Crescent City trilogy, the spin off.

 

From the beginning of the first book the author slowly unravels the secrets of each of the characters and their world. There is no rush, she takes time to develop each of the characters in depth. Already by the end of the third book, all the characters are so well developed that they feel very real and you start feeling with them and anticipating their reactions. The world is so well thought of, with such attention to detail, that you feel like you’re there. This world continues in Crescent city, and it feels like visiting a familiar place.

The characters are not perfect, they make mistakes, but they are strong and heroic. Her villains are true villains. However, there are some unexpected secrets kept by some of her characters and some unexpected changing sides.

The only negative criticism I have is related to the short description on the back of the book. I did not feel like it described the book justly. However, the covers make up for it and I chose paperback for that reason. These are probably the most beautiful book covers I have ever seen.
