I thought that although the story was miles above Twilight I still was still left feeling that it received way more hype than it deserved. The character at times came across as a weak minded little drama queen when what the story needed was a little more Joan of Arc strong. With all three books I was left wishing she was more like Lyra Belacqua from His Dark Materials and less like Bella from Twilight.
Other than a weak main character, this could have been an amazing story with several layers of depth. The political message underneath is very well done and gives these three books the element that makes it a worthwhile read.
With a stronger lead character, this could have been a perfect tale instead of just a worthwhile read. It is good, but it could have been great.
