I enjoyed this series very much (Poison Study was the best of the 3). It has a strong female lead character who is fully fleshed out, it has no profanity, a decent romantic thread, and an engrossing set of plots.
This final entry of the series - Fire Study - was the weakest of the 3. I found that it had a few too many "recaps" (i.e. re-introducing characters from previous books, and a couple times even characters/events from earlier in this book were recapped) and a few too many scenes with obvious "moral lessons".
It felt like the author lost track of who her audience was: if someone were reading book three, they probably already read the other 2 so why the recaps? and... we weren't force-fed moral lessons in the first 2 books, so why make them so obvious add-ons in the 3rd?
The best part of books one and two is that you felt like it was a fantasy written with a mature adult in mind, this one feels like it was written for a younger audience.
But it's still a good story, and a nice wrap up for the series...
