It's up to Merit to put her house in order-literally. And if that takes getting a little blood on her hands, so be it.
Well, I don't think I can say much more than what other readers are saying about the ending. I for one did not cry but found myself rationalizing what should have happened when you think about the fighting skills of the ones involved. Hmm...I pondered it for a few minutes and came to the conclusion that had there been more action and then it led to the same ending, then I would have given this book 5 stars. With that said, I love this series. I too am invested in the characters and their well-being.
Now, I don't think I would have been satisfied if every thing was all rainbows and butterflies. Ms. Neill needed to shake thinks up a bit and that she did. Again, I would have been screaming to the rafters if that particular scene wasn't so sudden. If only there could have been more leading up to that - I'm talking about a test of skills and see who comes out on top. Oh well, I'm going to take Ms. Neill at her word and trust that DRINK DEEPER is going to come at us with a vengeance with a capital V.
4.5 out of 5 Stars
