Shadow Heir by Richelle Mead
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
With the Winter Enchantment and the travelling and intrigue, this one had the potential to be my favorite of the series. Unfortunately, the last 15% or so killed it for me. I now understand why everyone was disappointed with the ending.
This book lost two and a half stars strictly because, well, Eugenie is a hypocritical bitch. Completely unlikeable, chock full of double standard bullshit, and ugh... I just can't even.
I could understand some parts of the end, but Eugenie's choice regarding a very important truth was just too far. Her decisions in prior books have been cringeworthy, especially when it came to breaking up with one of her two men "in her head"... but this just takes the cake.
Such a shame, because by the end, I liked all the supporting cast (outside of Kiyo/Maiwenn), especially Jasmine and Dorian.
Blah. Two and a half stars, rounded up ONLY because of characters like Jasmine and Dorian.
