This really is everything you'd expect from the finale of these electrifying books, and probably more. Constant twists and turns between good and evil, you're constantly left guessing where each character stands! I read this book in a matter of hours, and it's a large book, I just couldn't stop myself. Be warned though, this book is not for the faint hearted. It contains some of the most brutal imagery and horrific scenes I've ever come across in a book, it really brings home just how terrifying war is. The ending is typical of the series so far, unpredictable up until the very last pages. I urge everyone to give this entire series a read, it really is amazing in every way.
