The Rise of Magicks

The Rise of Magicks - Nora Roberts

On the whole I really enjoyed this and was pleased with the way it ended.


However, I did feel that some things that should have been given more weight--like major battles, for instance--were almost glossed over. They were just over with so quickly, and yay! the good guys won. There were mentions of the number of good guys killed, but it held little impact for me, because they were mostly nameless and faceless. I do say mostly, because there were named characters who died as well. I won't say more for fear of spoilers.


It was also a bit repetitive, and I honestly think the three books could have been combined into two.


For those two reasons, I gave it three and a half instead of four stars.


There was one part that made me completely break down, close the book and have a good cry. (It involved an animal death, just so you know.)
