Pendragon #10: The Soldiers of Halla by D.J. MacHale
I really did try to not finish this book for as long as I could… I wanted to not finish it because it meant this amazing series was over. I know exactly why my boyfriend absolutely adores this series. It was one of the greatest series I’ve ever picked up and I’m so glad that my boyfriend pushed for me to read it, because it truly was amazing from beginning to end.
So. MUCH. HAPPENED. in this last novel and I still cannot get over all of it. The whole last battle was amazing and I don’t want to put any spoilers as to who dies, but I will say that the way MacHale handled the deaths was phenomenal.
I cried so much during this freaking book. I can’t go into details about why because, again, spoilers. But I will say that this freaking book was just insane and so many things happened that left me in tears. MacHale has a knack for having the emotional stuff sneak up on you and then hit you like a ton of bricks.
My boyfriend was sleeping when I finished this book, but I’m honestly shocked I didn’t wake him up with my sobbing in the last couple chapters especially.
I will say that one of my favorite things, aside from the incredible territories that he created, would have to be the characters in this series. They’re some of the most amazing characters ever and I love watching how all of them grow over the course of the series.
I loved that last chapter and seeing what happened after everything that went down with Saint Dane. I was hoping we’d get some closure, and we definitely did, so I can’t be upset about that.
