I have had a really hard time reading this book. In no way because I wasn't enjoying it, I think that's what made it harder. I was enjoying it. So much. Letting go is never easy and you can scoff and find me silly if you like, it is after all just a set of books. Just three little amazing books and I procrastinated an insane amount with finishing this one. I wasn't ready for it to end. And now I sit here an emotional pile of goo. Heavy with emotion and tears that started about 50-ish pages from the end and didn't stop until about 5 minutes after I closed the book. Yes, it's easy to say I will be carrying this series with me for quite a while.
From chapter one of Unearthly all the way to the epilogue in Boundless I've been mesmerized by this stunning world and people that Cynthia Hand has created. I'm sitting here perplexed at the moment. Trying to find the right words to say about this. Anything I can think of, just doesn't feel like enough.
Partially I feel a great sense of satisfaction and closure with the ending of this series. Was it perfect? Yes. And then again no. I mean let's face it. Tucker Avery. Christian Prescott. One of these guys is going to lose his entire world. There is a triangle going on here so it wasn't going to end perfectly for someone. I was pretty emotionally attached to everyone so either way I knew from halfway through Hallowed that the ending of this series would hit me pretty hard. Hell I was so pulled into this story and characters that at one point I was crying for Samjeeza for crying out loud!!
I think anything I can say and have just said this far is just silly and not right. All I can say is if you haven't read these books yet, you have no idea how much you're missing out. It's worth it for every bit of laughter, anger, fear, loss and every tear. Must. Read. Series. I think from here on out every time I look at carrots, I'll smile fondly. :) Why? Pffft. Read the story silly!
