Into the Bright Unknown Reviews

    This is such a fantastic series, but this book is my least favorite out of the series. The way the book ended as kind of a let down because Lee had to explain to everyone (and us) what exactly went on during the book, which just felt like a long (and confusing) info-dump. Overall, though, this is a fantastic book series, I was just a bit let-down by this one.

    This cover is even better than the last one.

    Look at it.

    Behold its glory.

    And the title!!!

    I highly recommend the entire The Gold Seer trilogy.

    Oh my. You know you love an author when you mark a third book in the series to be published in a year as to-read even before reading #2.

    This was a lovely end to the series. It's not as exciting as the previous books, actually it's a little mellow, but it works for a finale. And as always I adored the cast here.

    This was disappointing and unnecessary. The plot was thin. The storyline was boring. It’s also a bit preachy, which I wasn’t in the mood for. I don't mind when books have lessons or make a good point, but I hate that feeling like it is forced upon me...like the author is hitting me over the head with it. When that happens, it disrupts the story more than it helps or makes a point.

    I gave this 3 stars, because I still love the characters and setting (and typically love everything Rae Carson). In

    I gave this 3 stars, because I still love the characters and setting (and typically love everything Rae Carson). In reality, it’s more of a 2.5.

    Unfortunately, this lacks intrigue, action, emotional resonance, and a satisfying conclusion. There's a happy ending. I just didn't enjoy it. In fact, by that point, I didn't even care anymore.

    The longer you read, the more tedious and cliché the story becomes. The displays of power are lackluster. Most of those questions I’ve been carrying with me since book one remain unanswered, which is both disappointing and a missed opportunity. Any answers you do get are vague and along the lines of –-because it just is what it is, grasshopper.

    I honestly can’t really understand why this book was necessary, other than it was part of the publishing contract. It definitely did not grow the series or contribute positively towards it. Almost everything I loved about the previous books was missing in this addition.

    If you really like period pieces and/or happy endings, enough to overlook things like plot and character development, then you’ll probably still enjoy this. It just wasn’t enough for me. My overall impression of this story is – meh.

    And I'm pretty sad about that.

    Not exactly what I was expecting, but I still enjoyed it nevertheless.

    That's fair. BUT.

    The majority of this book was great. I love these characters so much, and the villain was definitely hate-able, and I was interested to see how they planned on taking him down. The new characters that were introduced added something nice to the story as well. There was humor, cute shippy-ness, and at one point I was so nervous that I was actually shaking.

    is great writing.

    So where was that at the very end?

    Honestly, it feels like the author was coming up on her deadline, and the ending really suffered for it.

    If I hadn't known that the last page was the last page (meaning if I'd thought that the last page on the progress bar was the last page), I would have been even more upset by the way things ended. That last sentence was not satisfying at all, and I get that Carson was trying to end on a sweet note, but that didn't do it for me. And I'm a little bit bitter.

    If you couldn't tell.

    TL;DR - beautiful cover, lovable characters, hate-able villain, great plot, very unsatisfying ending.

    3.5 stars (the extra half is because of the cover, not even gonna lie).

    FANFREAKINGTASTIC!

    I have loved this series way more than I thought I would. I am kind of glad I waited for the final book to come out so I could read all three this past week. I loved the plot, characters, and well, everything about this series! This trilogy has been a great reading experience!

    is the third and final installment in

    . Set in the gold rush era, Ms. Carson puts her spin on history by adding a bit of magical realism which added some interest. Topics related to gender, race/slavery, the treatment of Native Americans, and corruption are brilliantly showcased in my opinion and added a depth that many YA authors could learn from. Overall, my investment in this trilogy as a whole ebb
