My Thoughts on the novel
Well, first off, Kingdom of Ash took me forever to get through, hence why I was barely writing blog posts and just reviewing books in general because I was only reading this novel. My brain was solely focused on this last chapter of this surprisingly long series. So, my apologies for being invisible, however, I am so glad that I finally finished this book and series in a whole.
Yes, I thought this was a satisfying ending, but the length of the novel was sort of unnecessary in my opinion. Most of the time there was too much detail in the battle scenes and I just wanted to get to another scene after awhile. This is the main reason why I had to take off a star. Other than that, I purely enjoyed the ending and am happy with how each character’s storyline ended, especially Rowan’s and Aelin’s, which is shocking to me because those two were low-key my least favorite.
