Fair warning: I would not consider this a spoiler, but if you are trying to avoid all potential spoilers, you may not want to read on until you have finished the book. This review contains information about which characters will and will not be featured in this book and what I thought of each of them and their relationships with one another. It does not give any spoilers about the mystery or plot.

This book is by far my favorite book in the series and believe me, that says a lot. I am extremely grateful for this series, because it really helped me regain my love for reading.

For Waysa and Rowena fans, you may be disappointed because those two characters were not featured in this book. Personally I enjoyed it because that just means more of Serafina and Braden (which might I add are the best ship EVER!) For Bradefina fans like myself, you will not be disappointed with this book. There were so many adorable moments between the two of them that I was literally beaming and squealing half the time! Chapters 4, 62, and 64 had my heart doing somersaults out of my chest! I have read and re-read them over and over because I enjoy them so much!

Anyways, fan girl aside, I really enjoyed the plot of this one. Some of the previous books in this series (mostly 1 and 2) had solutions to mysteries that and left me a bit unsatisfied. This one was super unpredictable and the author tied everything together in a beautiful way! The plot is darker then 1 and 2, but I’d say it’s pretty similar to 3, although there is a lot of death and a bit of gore in this one. For young or sensitive readers I’d certainly advise digression, but personally it did not bother me.

As for the characters, Braden and Serafina were wonderfully developed and their personalities really shined in this one. They are staying true to their old selves but also growing up and developing in new ways. The relationship between Braden and Serafina definitely seemed to be more than what it was before, depending on how you look at it (which I absolutely LOVED!) I really have no complaints with these characters. However, Jess and Colonel Braddick felt a bit underdeveloped and somewhat unnecessary. I would have liked to get to know them better so that I could get attached to their stories and personalities more. Serafina acted like she and Jess were good friends, but they truly didn’t have that much interaction. Also Jess’s relationship with her father seemed quite similar to Rowena’s. Nevertheless, the characters in this story were a great addition to the beautiful story!

From beginning to end the twists, suspense, and Bradefina moments were packed in! I enjoyed every bit of it, but the end was my favorite. The ending was so SPECTACULAR I can’t even find the words to describe it. If there isn’t a fifth book, I might cry and if there is, I might cry tears of joy. I HAVE to know what happens next! Thank you, Robert Beatty for this INCREDIBLE work of art! 5 star review
