Rating: 3 out of 5.

This is the last book in an entertaining YA Fantasy series. Séverin and the team are separated by Séverin’s apparent betrayal. All he can hope is that they got his message and are racing through Venice to help implement his plan to find the temple where the Divine Lyre can be played and his dreams finally achieved. But first Séverin must deal with the deranged head of the Fallen House and the team must deal with a laundry list of obstacles, including those within themselves. Oh, and Laila only has 10 days to live…

I really enjoyed the first two books of this trilogy. I listened to the last book on an audiobook and feel like it hindered my enjoyment of the book. I did not like the narrators and found myself zoning out as they talked. The book is only 400 pages but seemed to last an eternity. The book was unevenly paced and I felt like the story was drawn out about 100 pages too much. A bit more editing would have tightened up the pace and the tension of the story. Overall, I enjoyed the book and series and recommend you read it.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley and MacMillan Audio. All opinions are my own.
