A dramatic and stunning conclusion to the trilogy! The Demon's Lexicon series is one of my favourites, and Surrender definitely did not disappoint.
The stakes have risen with each instalment in the series. The plot was at all times either intense or foreshadowing, keeping me on the edge of my seat. There were so many twists and turns that I never saw coming. Sarah Rees Brennan's books are among the few that I can't predict the ending to, and I love them for that.
|I love this kind of pacing: a series of smaller complications all adding up to the final, overall problem.|
The relationships between characters are incredibly unique and interesting. I love reading about Alan and Nick's bond - actually, just the relationship between Nick and anyone else. Being unfeeling makes for relationships that are...different.
The romance in this trilogy has been subtle; definitely there, but not the main focus. It's developed realistically given the duress the characters are typically under, making them hesitant.
A perfect ending to the trilogy. I'll miss the characters, but I'm happy with them in the place they reached. I really can't wait to see what Sarah comes up with for future books!
I give The Demon's Surrender a 5 out of 5.
