This was a tough one for me. It was well written, and as other reviewers have mentioned way better than me, I thought the author did a fantastic job of keeping the characters true to themselves. But I had trouble climbing back into the story since several months had passed since the ending of the last book. I couldn't just lose myself in the story as I had with book one and two, even though I needed to see how it ended. Hence, it doesn't get a higher rating.
