this book is amazing. it has lots of twists and turns and you wont be able to put it down once. it is a magical experience where you venture into the backstorys of all the fairytales . i love this book and think it is amazing!
Ah, The Last Ever After, what a beast of a book - almost 700 pages!!! That being said, I found it really easy to read, and I accidentally read two-thirds of this book in one sitting. A really good conclusion that flowed with the overall character arcs across the trilogy.
Agatha was awesome as always, Sophie was a super pain, Tedros was a lovably idiot (especially at the start) before he found his way back to dashing hero figure, and there was Merlin. Book + Merlin always equals awesome in my mind. The focus for this book was mainly the leads, rather than the secondary characters, but Hester, Anadil, Dot and co. did appear.
I found the plot fun, though I felt the characters seemed to have taken a huge leap backwards, before they went forward again ( I don't want to spoil the plot, but Tedros and Agatha fighting ALL the time seemed extreme, and then when Sophie tries to break them up AGAIN because she thinks Tedros is her true love I almost screamed). The very end was good, and I can see why more books are going to be in the series, though this first arc is definitely over.
So, because of the slight alteration in characters at the start, repetition of Sophie 'loving' Tedros (again, yeah, I sighed too) and the sudden reason for Sophie at the end (which seemed too spur of the moment in my view - she has just spent 600+ pages saying she wanted love through the School Master, then what happened...??????? Left me a little confused) dropped the rating from 5 stars by .5, but otherwise, it was a fun finale.
The School for Good and Evil series is just a great read and reinterpretation of fairytales, with lots of romance, action, humour and drama!
