The Beauty of Darkness

the-beauty-of-darknessThe Remnant Chronicles, #3

Written by Mary E. Pearson

If you had asked me when this series started if I was excited for the last book, I would have said, “Definitely!” After the second, “I guess.” Unfortunately, my prediction came true. I agree with other reviewers that this book was disappointing, dissatisfying, and way too long. The fun, surprise, and newness in the other books were missing here. I could hardly get through it. A pet peeve I have is when an author tries to be “realistic” in a fantasy story. It’s fantasy! Have fun with it! That didn’t happen here. I was waiting the entire series for Lia’s “gift” to show itself and that fizzled as well. A very disappointing conclusion to what could have been brilliant.
