I actually don't know why I am finishing this series. I decided to and have stuck with that decision. I've started Inheritiance but am not motivated at all to read it, but I don't want to start anything else till it's done. Book problems.
But before Inheritance, I read this. The series isn't terrible but it feels like a sewn together storyline versus an original one. And it's slow. But they don't take long to read if I just sit myself down and get through it.
