I am very pleased with how this series ended. Yes, I am one of Karina Halle's many superfans, but I like to think that only played a small role in my enjoyment. Halle has a knack for developing her characters to their full potential. Does that always take them where we want them to go? No, and it shouldn't. She takes the characters where they need to go and where they realistically should go. There are no big surprises here with the characters, perhaps just some broken fan hearts. I have to admit, however, that for a little while there I wasn't confident about which guy would get the girl. I thought I knew but I was not convinced anyone's fate was solidified until it was obvious. The series does lead us to an obvious conclusion (and in my opinion the right and realistic one) but there was this lingering feeling of, "my world could be flipped at any time."
I know many people were upset that
ended up together. Here's why I believe this was what needed to happen with as little rambling from me as possible.
This entire series has played out like a movie and it was quite the ride. I felt like the characters developed realistically and fully. I wasn't left thinking, "That just happened for no good reason." There was action, suspense, hot "romance," and closure. Karina Halle continues to deliver and I am forever a fan.
