ReviewI think it has become normal for me to take my time on books with over 600 pages, at least, that is the case with this one. Every time I pick up a long book, it just happens to take me a little longer than other books. Although, being a writer first does have something to do with it.

Anyway, onto the book, shall we?

Since this is the final book in The Remnant Chronicles, I was expecting it to be longer than the first two books, but honestly, 600+ pages was a little too much for me. I mean, I am a huge fan of big books, especially during the winter,however, while I was reading this, I was extremely busy with other things so whenever I got down time, I would try to soak in everything, but most days it just took forever because of how detailed most scenes were.

Other than that, I really did enjoy the multiple point of views in this book and the previous two. I know most people hate books that have multiple perspectives, but I enjoy these types of books more than the other books I have completed in the past.

There is just something about getting lost in another character’s mind – one who is not the main character.

    1. So true, and with a busy schedule, it was just dragging since I was very tired half of the time, but the trilogy as a whole was amazing. You should definitely give it a shot.
