Check out my reviews for books 1, 2 and 3.
A very short review:
All in all, as this book is following the events from the previous three books and drawing it to a close, my opinions about the characters are pretty much the same.
With regards to the plot line, I found it meh.....it wasn’t that great but it wasn’t bad. I just think it was time to close the chapter on this story, with Jamie and his friends and towards the end it seemed like it was dragging out.
There were a lot of deaths, but I didn’t find any of them sad or heart breaking.
There were a lot of action, as usual, in this book but in my opinion, it took time to get there. Once it did, it was in full swing; the fight between the humans and Dracula’s army of vampires. On the flip side though, once the action was in full swing, it was never ending. I guess that makes sense since from book 2, everyone’s been waiting for the Zero Hour.
With regards to Jamie and his friends, they all had a happily ever after, although I didn’t like how the author shun Kate out from all the action.
