What a series!  This is the final book in the Bones of Faerie series and it was a perfect way to end it.

After fighting the Queen of Faerie, Liza needs a break. The communication with her mother is still weak, she is still training to better her magic and on top of that she hasn’t seen her boyfriend in 5 months (She’s not complaining because she just isn’t that type of girl).

But now there is a new issue. Piles of dust of former creatures and humans are being found in the forest. Although Liza was able to call back the trees in her world, the Faerie realm is slowly dying and turning to dust.  Liza, Matthew, and Allie must risk everything they have and everything they don’t have in order to save the world . . . again.

What I loved loved about this book was the fact romance was the last thing on Matthew and Liza’s mind. Granted if they were allowed to go further maybe they would have but they something always stopped them from moving on from one passionate kiss. Liza and Matthew didn’t allow their feelings for each other to distract themselves from the bigger picture which is a breath of fresh air considering that almost every young adult book with fairies there is some kind of romance or implied sex.

I also loved the how the author made it clear that the sacrifices Liza, Matthew and Allie were making was much more than a normal life. Between dying, watching someone they love die and going through crazy emotional and physical pain these teens gave up their life for everyone to live safely. There was a true passion for life in this book and all thanks goes to the author.

I can’t say that there was something I disliked about the book. Some things needed to happen and it did slow the book down but it was a slow down I approved of.

Over all, the book was a good read and if you don’t believe me you can check out its page on goodreads.com. The series was a great read and it was different. I appreciated the fact that the author didn’t want to make the faerie realm as magical as all other faerie books in the young adult genre. This book definitely deserves attention and recognition for being different.

Book gets 9 out of 10.
