“I love you,” he said.
“I love you too, Thanos,” Ceres said. “But can’t this wait until we’re clear?”Me at all YA sci-fi / fantasy love plots
I’m honestly just getting tired of this series. When it should have been slowing down and coming to a close, it built up more instead but without planting the seeds early enough to warrant the continuation. I don’t mind the expansion of the world, but it came out of nowhere. A mention of these places even like two books earlier would have sufficed. I just wish things were allowed to breath for two seconds without being plunged into chaos again. It really feels like there was absolutely no plan at all for the trajectory of the series so all that’s left is a jumbled mess.
Also, the SJM / Cassandra Clare aspect of every single character ever getting a significant other is a bit grating. I like the brother, but he really didn’t need a love interest especially when her presence in the story amounts to a piece paper floating on a strong breeze.
I still absolutely love Felene though! I really hope she’s okay hah we didn’t get a great closing scene for her and she’s carrying this series on her back rn. She’s basically Lila Bard from the Shades of Magic trilogy by V.E. Schwab but not ridiculously annoying or needlessly selfish. She’s a pretty solid anti-hero and I really like her.
