Series: Crown & Key #3
Simon was still trying to cope with what happened to him at the end of The Undying Legion. If he can’t find a way to fix things, the world could be in danger. Two ancient forces are at war. Simon needs to defeat them, but he can’t do it alone. He had amassed an unlikely group of allies, and he would need all of them to help him fight.
Maybe it was because it was a big change of pace from the type of stuff I’ve been reading, but I loved the way the romance was done. It was an important part of the story, but it was still low key. Their love was shown through actions and the way they treated each other rather than through thoughts and deep expressions of love. I had been afraid going into the series that there would be a love triangle, which luckily did not happen.
The conclusion to the Crown and Key trilogy was excellent! It was action packed. Nothing was left unexplained. Kate and Simon finally understood the connection between their fathers and what they were trying to do. The character development was great. All of the characters grew and changed without altering the core of who they were. I will really miss these characters now that the trilogy is over.
