-S P O I L E R S-
In a way, not as much happened in this third book. A lot more happened in Fortunes and Fables but I liked this all the same.
First off, can we have a moment of silence for this star crossed couple? Like can you imagine being able to live with someone only in a room and losing them the moment you step out? I CRY!
Also the girl, Eleanor I believe is the same girl from before who went exploring in the forest and feel through a door! I LOVE how the stories connect wonderfully
Also honestly I love Mirabel. She gives me slight Luna Lovegood meets Hermione vibes and just... she's cool <3
Also EEEP Mirabel and the Keeper? I need to know how that came to be and also what were they talking about?? Also how long has the Keeper been around? even before Simon and how far back? And what did he mean he doesn't want to lose her again?
Damn Ezra! Even I was thinking why drink what Allegra gave him? Like why risk it? I'm glad he's okay though and honestly the Kitchen is a lifesaver!
Eleanor ah my girl, poor girl. It can't be easy being the only kid around and I love how she's an absolute explorer. I especially like how she folds her nightmares into stars and all her quirks. I love when she says "Anything is for girls" to Simon.
Also guys Keating! Simon Keating. Eeep I realized it before Ezra even thought the name Keating sounds familiar. So that's how sweet Sorrows came to the upside world. THE CONNECTIONS MAKE ME EXCITED!
OKAY MIRABEL. She's the daughter of our star crossed lovers!! What does this mean?? And Simon! where is he now? What happened to Eleanor? Does Mirabel know who her parents are? I HAVE A LOT OF QUESTIONS!
I really loved that we have a chapter from Dorian's point of view when he's watching Ezra. It says one of the girls spotted him and I think it's Kat? Will Kat feature again in the book?? PLEASE I WANTS MORE KAT!
Also who is leaving Ezra all the riddles and making him go to the bee queen?
