The final book in the Water Fire Saga kicks off with an excellent description, but a lackluster cover. Where the other covers were quite beautiful and realistic, this one felt a bit cartoonish. As for the storyline, much like that of book three, I felt it meandered and lacked the real action I was looking for. We get to see more of Becca, but again, her parts were glossed over much like that of the characters aside from Sera and Astrid. Unfortunately, it felt like the action-packed parts, like when the characters are captured, are left out and only explained in monologue once everyone comes back together. It seems like this was meant to build suspense, but in the end, it had me skimming through a good portion to get to the real action. Additionally, the volume of description was overbearing at times, and I never really felt the connection I was looking for between Becca and her human love interest. The final chapter wrapped everything in a nice bow for each of the characters, and then the epilogue slammed us with the question of if the book was actually the final book in the series. I had to look it up to see, and to me, that was a bit uncalled for. Perhaps, the author was looking for a spinoff, but what she ended up with was an ending that had me going 'meh.'
