About book: I enjoyed this a lot more than the first row books. In fact, for most of the book, I found it very hard to put down for any length of time. I did not enjoy a fairly lengthy bit near the end, however, which reminded me of one of Weber's long info-dumps — not that it was one, but I found the history bit more boring than portentous even though it was necessary to the plot. All the same, it was a great read and I'm glad I bought hardcover so I can read it again and again.For a horrible moment, I was sure this book was going to end without the lovers coming together. Phew! They only just made it, and the fates of some other couples are still in the air. Don't be mistaken. This whole trilogy is a love story and a heart-jerking one at that, but the other story — the little matter if the multiple worlds and the little experiment — the one that began the wars on Eretz and the angel myth on Earth is by no means finished, so if Ms Taylor thinks she can rest on her well-deserved laurels and leave us guessing for a few years, I am going to scream. I love Laini Taylor's writing. She's so good at description, at setting the mood and capturing the characters' emotions. This book has style.I'm a bit baffled by the ending, and that's the only thing that makes me not love this one more. Seriously, I have no idea what to make of that. I think that part of the problem is that I was listening to this one on audio, and I must have gotten distracted and missed a couple of key pieces of information. I might go back and just read the last couple of chapters.As a side note, it is actually pretty easy to get distracted with this audiobook. It's all of that description. You start to dwell on lovely lines of prose, and then suddenly you realize that the story has gone on without you. Sigh.
