Book Review: The Wondrous and the Wicked
Book 3 in the Dispossessed Trilogy
AUTHOR: Page Morgan
PUBLISHED: April 14th, 2015
GENRE: Historical Fantasy
PREMISE: The final battle happens.
MY REVIEW: Sigh. This trilogy started off so well and then just sort of fizzled. I loved the first book a lot. The second one was...okay, but still managed to keep me invested. This one was just...okay.
The problem is, it was just too predictable. It certainly did its job as an ending to a trilogy. It answered lingering questions, it solved plotlines, and came to a neat and tidy ending. It's just...nothing unexpected really happened. If you read a lot of these YA trilogies, you could probably guess where it was going to go. There were no surprises. I literally yawned my way through this.
Again, it did its job as an ending to a series. It's just that the ending was terribly boring and quite predictable. So I give the author an A for effort at least, I just would have liked at least SOME surprise.
WHO SHOULD READ: Those that have read the first two books, historical fantasy fans
MY RATING: Three and a half out of Five shrugs
RATING FOR TRILOGY: Three and a half out of Five
