“Thank you for being the Ron to my Harry. The Samwise to my Frodo. The Tom to my Huck. (…)The Watson to my Holmes(…)The Horatio to my Hamlet(…) The Sancho Panza to my Don Quixote(…) The Piglet to my Pooh”.

Best compliment one could ever hope to get. This little part made the whole trilogy worth reading to me.

The Shadow Hour

Ok. Another story that turns out has another sequel.

I’ve read many stories with multiple point of view and there are some pretty awkward and confusing stories out there, but I can honestly say that The Shadow Hour isn’t one of those.

You get a bit of the drama, with the love triangle of Rowan, Echo and Caius; you also get a bit of the sweet stuff, with Dorian and Jasper and how their relationship blossoms in spite of the war going on; but you also get a bit of comic relief here and there and Ivy with her compassionate view of a world and the people that have done her many wrongs.

It’s  great story, but i’m not sure I liked where it ended. An absolutely not sure abut what to expect on the next one. While I enjoyed this one with its mysteries and budding romances, it felt a bit anti-climatic by the end.

And, honestly! there was too little heard from the Ala. She is one of my favorite characters!

But well… I guess there is no other option but to wait for the next installment and go from there.
