*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
I don’t even know where to begin with this review.
If you’ve seen any of my other reviews for this series, then you might know that for me, every book has been better than the last. This one has just completely ruined me.
My friend Jamie mentioned in her review that she thought ‘everything was going to be okay because there’s still one more book’, which is exactly how I felt. I thought that I’d be fine because there was still Crystal Crowned to go, but oh god, how wrong I was. I don’t think I’ve cried like this for a while, certainly not for a book. My face is actually hurting from sobbing so much.
I expected it to be pretty heart-wrenching, as the last three books have been, but also because of the way Earth’s End ended. I already felt unprepared before I even opened this book. Even then, I could not have seen this pain coming. Even just thinking about the big thing that happens in this book makes me want to cry. I mentioned in my last review that I thought I’d need therapy by the time this series is over, but I don’t think I’m even going to make it to July.
By this stage in the series, I can’t talk a whole lot about the plot or the characters without spoiling at least one of the earlier books. Just know that everything is incredible, and heartbreaking. It is my life mission to make sure every reader in the world feels the Air Awakens feels at some point in their lives. I will not stop until everyone is on the floor sobbing into a pillow…which I totally wasn’t doing half an hour ago.
I don’t think I’m ever going to be able to put into words how much I love this series. If you haven’t read it, you absolutely have to pick it up. On that note, I’m going to go back to crying about that one thing that happened.
