Well, well, well, it's all over for Christian Gillette. I read all four books in this series and, at least, I hope it's over.
If I could turn back the clock and not have had to read the last 15 pages of the book, I would do so.
An absolutely miserable, formulatic ending that Frey obviously had no idea how to wrap up. It took 275 pages to set up and 10 pages to reach a climax that never really occurred. And the ending's ending was woeful, I wasn't expecting to get a Hallmark card and, wouldn't you know, there it was, plasterd all over the final 3 pages.
As well, one of the main, and outside of Gillette, the most important, characters is killed off with a few words and very little substance. It was miserably anticlimatic and, way worse, totally unnecessary and he nothing to do with advancing the plot or allowing the story to reach its final resolution. It was kind of tossed in as an aside, as a matter of fact.
That's how you treat characters the readers spend multiple books reading about and getting to know?
Terrible job by the author and it really left a bitter aftertaste in my mouth about the whole series.
