If you've read and enjoyed the rest of this series than you'll definitely enjoy reading this book. I love SJM's world building and love reading about her awesome characters. I had many things to be satisfied with (Lorcan & Elide!) and there were some pretty epic moments that I loved. However, there were a lot of technical problems with this book and it seemed like SJM had a hard time deciding how to end her series. My biggest gripe has to be her timeline. The whole series apparently takes place in just one year and it's just not feasible to me. SO MUCH HAPPENS in this series and some aspects would be more believable if the story took place over the course of a few years. There are also issues with timing in KoA itself because it's not clear off the bat with how much time has passed between Empire of Storms and the events that we keep reading about in each POV. I loved the ride. It's a great series but it's just a shame there's a lot of clumsy bits throughout.
