Name of Reviewer: Heidi Lyn
AUGH! But ... oh ... squee!!! Nooo ... ugh! OOH, yeah, yay! Hmm... Awww ...
I tried to post that on Amazon, but the rejected it because it apparently lacked coherent information, so I'll try to do better here.
So here we go ...
I loved the first two books in this series. They both made my top 10 list for 2017. This one, I found, took a little longer to get into. There wasn't as much snark. There was a little bit, but the tone was a little quieter, a little slower, a little less joke a minute and more joke every couple of pages. Also, it was a time travel story, made clear from the get go, and time travel stories have that annoying habit of "erasing" all the consequences at the end therefore making me a little less invested in the sakes. It was about the 50% mark where things that I can't get into because of spoilers gave this the highest stake level of any of the book so far and dang ... from that point on, it is mad feelz.
There's a really sweet moment we've been waiting for three books for ... then a really bittersweet ending ... and things just get more complicated.
Also, I want more dragon. Please?
Anyway, so it became my favorite of the series so far from about the 50% mark on and I highly recommend it.
Lovers of time travel, snark, twists, and light romance
