Allies, once inseparable, splinter until they break apart.
An insidiousness carves its way through Wonderland, challenging the land’s very existence.

Swords will clash, blood will be spilled, and lives will be lost.
For what is written can still be erased.

The plot is fast paced and action packed. There is soo much that goes on in this book. So very much. There are so many loose ends that are tied up in the race to the finish. You can’t even really get into details because it’s possible to give something away.
I have always loved the writing in The Collector’s Society series. It just has the lyrical way about it that reminds me of Wonderland.
I love Alice because there are times when I don’t like her. Not because she is annoying for making dumb decisions but because I don’t always agree with her. She is so stubborn and bull headed at times that it can be frustrating. She is also loyal and true to her heart though and thinks of her people above all. She is such a great character because she is such a faceted character.
Finn is always the more docile narrative in the series. He’s kind of like the calming voice to Alice’s stubbornness. With him going through so many different things we don’t see him as much.
This was definitely a perfect end to the series. There were many things that surprised and some things that were like ah yes that makes sense, like The Librarian’s identity. I’m sad to see the series go because it’s been such a fun read.
I have been with this series since the beginning and it's been an amazing journey. What I have loved most is the involvement of so many different stories and timelines. It was one of the most enjoyable parts of reading. Finding out who was going to show up next. Sometimes I recognized people right away and sometimes I didn't.
Picking a villain for the series is a scary thing because there are some many villains that seem like extremely formidable foes. I think about Voldemort or the Darkling. How would the Society defeat them. It would be interesting to know. Of course the horcruxes could be spread across timelines.
So who would I choose......
The King of the Jinni from The Forbidden Wish
How do you fight a Jinn?? It would be awesome to see The Collector Society to take that on and to enlist the help of Zahra. Imagine Alice and her going head to head. It would be interesting.
