wasted my time reading this series in the first place.This book is tedious, full of clich , tackiness and unnecessary drama To me, the whole thing, the war, the drama, the plot, the romance, the friendships, all are senseless The whole book was basically stupid teenage drama, but with grown up characters now Elena is evenunbearable than in previos books, which is saying a lot I disliked almost every single though that came out of her Blake, on the other hand, acts like a pushover the whole book and lets Elena get away with everything, arg Honestly, at this point I wonder if the writer knows what a healthy relationship is, and I am not referring exclusively to the romantic ones The whole series in general ends up being unoriginal It is full of ideas from Harry Potter and not in a good way Harry Potter is epic from the first page to the last, this series has a general feeling of lameness to me The worst thing is, there are not only similarities with Harry Potter, but also with other YA books, an example would be the game with the flag that is a rip off from Divergent I even think I am kind of morally opposed to many things that go on in these books, the way they are explained and exposed Some examples The whole Kara situation is horrible In the end it is sold that her purpose of existing was so that Elena could live So basically it was ok for her to die because it wasimportant for Elena to live To make this even better, Kara s own parents, who should be the ones to protect her over anything in the world in my book, agree with that and chose Elena s life over their own daughter s I find all this tremendously wrong and discriminating I am quite disgusted by it The beatings to the Rubicon Really Where those really necessary I just think that there might have been other ways to achieve the same objective without having a father beating his son for his and the greater good So to me, this shows lack of imagination in finding out a better solution without having such a message that could be easily, very badly misunderstood by teenage in a young adult series The hypocrisy and chauvinistic way of how sexual relationships are portrayed There is a clear difference between what Blake can do, and what his sister Sammy and Elena can do This discrimination is shown by the parents and by the school Again, I am very nauseated by this and I consider it a very bad message for teenagers since, IT PERPETUATES GENDER INEQUALITY I am sick and tired of the enabling of this behaviors, specially coming from women writers nowadays The portrayal of friendships here The friendships that the girls have between each other as well as with the boys, is without fault repeatedly dishonest They talk about not keeping secrets and yet in every single book and in several occasions, this people keep secrets from each other and chose to be mad with one another in behalf of another friend In many cases, this omissions of truth are justified as being the best for the other person To me that is not what friendship or even respect is Once again I find another very bad message send here The end to the game of the flag The flag in the game was supposed to be something meaningful due to what it represented, it is explain to us as such repeatedly, even though to me the amount of stressed put into it was ridiculous and yet in the end it didn t really matter So we have a senseless scene with an anticlimactic end But that is not what really bothered me of the game What bothered me was Elena s behavior We can see at the end of the game how she basically let Blake give up something that we were previously told it was important to him, and he ends up not caring about the outcome Does she know what loyalty is Or it only goes one way for her, towards her Dose she know what supporting someone is Or it only applies if is something that benefits her To me, she is not what a partner is supposed to be To me she is whiny, self center and of bad character I wouldn t consider her as a human being worth of praise The situation with Blake and Tabitha First I need to say that it is tremendously clich and unoriginal But again, is Elena s behavior what bothers me most She doesn t even show the guy an once of trust and blames him for her distrust, although I don t really see where he has proven to be untrustworthy before Again, she behaves like a victim and a selfish person She forgives him when she finds prove, not because she comes to trust the person she professes to love To me, Elena is a very unlikable person who blames other people How both Lucien and Tabitha have been pushed out of the way Well, eliminated isaccurate What a way to get rid of past lovers One I can maybe accept, two, it is too much and it says something about the writer and in case of doubt, it is not something nice Wait until marriage That s the last message this writer sends I am so opposed to this that I wish I could give minus stars to this book It sickens me This was the last drop for me and if I had had any doubts from the messages before which I didn t , this one would have sealed the idea that I would never ever read anything else from this author again or recommend her In conclusion, this book is a terrible end to the series After reading the last two books, I don t even recommend a single book here because is a waste of time.P.S I listened the entire series on audiobook and I must say that the narrator did a great job.Firebolt The Dragonian 1

    I thought this book was a whole lot of drama, and too little action I imagined this book would be filled with badass fighting scenes, kick ass dragons clearing all the evil out of Etan Instead, this novel is strife with a series of misunderstandings, and unnecessary drama, if you ask me Time after time, we get a SUPER annoying Elena, who honestly, acts like a five year old child As soon as she sees something she doesn t like, she runs away in the shower and hides away from everyone She igno I thought this book was a whole lot of drama, and too little action I imagined this book would be filled with badass fighting scenes, kick ass dragons clearing all the evil out of Etan Instead, this novel is strife with a series of misunderstandings, and unnecessary drama, if you ask me Time after time, we get a SUPER annoying Elena, who honestly, acts like a five year old child As soon as she sees something she doesn t like, she runs away in the shower and hides away from everyone She ignores ANYONE trying to reason with her I am talking about Elena walking in on Blake and Tabithaand OF COURSE, Elena just has to assume the worst, and basically forbids Blake from talking to her for monthsI mean MONTHS She will not listen to anyone tell her what actually happens, and instead of talking to Blake about it, she just blocks him off This really bothers me, since I find this type of romance to be too immature.Also, I thought this series was trying too hard to be like Harry Potter We have Warbel Games instead of Quidditch We have Dragonia instead of Hogwarts We have a series of classes based on enhancing the skills of the students, Art of War, etc We have an evil wizard Goran, instead of the evil Voldemort And the list goes on from here Except in this book, the action is BARELY THERE GAHHHHH We do not even get to see Helmet take on Goran Instead, we hear about everything that happened to Elena in a summary paragraph And lastly, they said that Blake and Elena s love would be the greatest love to ever exist Why couldn t we get a taste of this Instead, we get a pretty abrupt ending, if you ask me And we never got to see the two kick ass together and their powers as true Dents utterly disappointed Overall, I would give this series a 3 Nothing special in my opinion I felt like the potential was SO MUCH, but the delivery was seriously lacking

    Really Is this the turn this series had to take Why is there the pic of Elena in a warrior look, coz the book have everything else than the war Its all nonsense drama and nothing else It bored me to hell with all the drama going on,I skipped most of the conversations and was just hanging to know the final end But the misunderstanding part was the final blow and I can get on with this book anyIt was a great series but the last two books ruined it and how.

    I was really dissapointed in the Starlight I loved this series and this book was highly anticipated but this book was probably my least favourite in this whole series While reading it, I had to take long breaks and I even skimmed most of it, just to finish it and even the ending wasn t the best The plot was all jumbled up and felt like it wasn t even connected to the previous books This whole book was based on the drama between Blake and Elena and Tabitha Most of the characters went downhil I was really dissapointed in the Starlight I loved this series and this book was highly anticipated but this book was probably my least favourite in this whole series While reading it, I had to take long breaks and I even skimmed most of it, just to finish it and even the ending wasn t the best The plot was all jumbled up and felt like it wasn t even connected to the previous books This whole book was based on the drama between Blake and Elena and Tabitha Most of the characters went downhill aswell Elena, was the biggest one She had improved a lot over the last few books, but in this book she was aannoying version of the first book Elena I hated how after the dent, Blake s character changed fully I miss the dark Blake sometimes with moments of niceness So, basically book 3 Blake Sammy was basically non existant in this book especially since I really like her Also Dean Beck had a bigger role, but I ve still yet to like her One character I really liked was Ariana I love how much she has devolped I was really excited to know about the dent, but I felt like the author hyped it up too much when realistically it was just confusing The war at the end was also very dissapointing I felt it could have been written and explained better I though the ending was kind of sweet and a good closure for Elena I know there is a prequel being made of this book, but after reading this, my chances of reading them are very low

    I expectedof this book Especially since it was the last one The pace was slow and it made the book feel too long They re supposed to be planning things, they re at war after all, but she goes back to the academy like nothing is going on It also wastes time describing boring facts about her routine That plus the misunderstandings made want to pull my hair out It was such a let down until the very bitter end What a shame
