The third book of this trilogy is an enjoyable, fantastic experience. It's a book that envelopes the listener into the story. The second book was good too. But I fear that some people won't get to either book 2 and 3 due to book 1, which was just okay.
Because there is a lot of "review" of previous back story written into books 2 and 3, a reader that isn't obsessed with reading the complete trilogy might do better just to skip book 1.
Strangely, with other author's trilogies, usually the first book is really good and the others will not be as interesting, but with this series, the writing got tighter, the plot more intricate, and the characters and story line deeper and more complex. It's a great story.
A bit of an "ick" factor for me about 2/3rds of the way into the storyline with the choice of the character Ella, and I started to wonder if this series was being written by a man . . .
I still wish there was a little bit more fine tuning in the description of the environment, physical character appearances or changes, and use of sensory descriptions to make the listener (reader) feel the story, but books 2 and 3 did improve on that in comparison to book 1.
