Review: The Forever Song by Julie Kagawa

Review: The Forever Song by Julie Kagawa

Let’s start off by talking about the ending of The Forever Song, the last book in the Blood of Eden trilogy.  It ended perfectly, without an ounce of surprise, with every character’s fate wrapped up exactly as you’d expect.  That’s not a complaint, because it was all immensely satisfying.  Less satisfying, however, was the middle section of this book, which felt bloated and repetitive.
