The third in a trilogy about the ex-Chosen One and his friends from a magical boarding school after their defeat of the Big Bad. The A plot focuses on a new possible Chosen One, the B plot focuses on the Chosen One's ex finding herself, and a C plot focuses on breaking a curse.

The more this series becomes an actual story with characters and plots I'm supposed to care about, the more its fanfiction stylistics grate on me. The strength of fanfiction is on commenting through narrative on source texts and genres, and the first book in this series was outstanding at that, effectively and humorously taking on the whole idea of Chosen One stories. The second two books have an established world and characters, though, which means they're just books. So this is just a book that jumps between half a dozen POVs, explores hackneyed relationship stresses, plays a lot and winks at multiple forms of queerness, and is scraping the bottom of the barrel for catchwords-as-magic-phrases. The lack of any wider commentary means our boon for all those writing & thematic weaknesses is just yet-another-meh-YA-book that speaks mostly to readers who are already deeply invested in the characters.

I read the whole trilogy in 3 days and have lost grip of reality so finding it quite hard to objectively rate this book. I love all the characters and I hope they are happy forever. ( )

This is the final book in the Simon Snow trilogy, which itself was a... spinoff?... of sorts from Rowell's novel Fangirl, Simon Snow being the Harry Potter-esque character the titular fangirl was writing her fanfiction about. And I will never cease to be tickled by the way Rowell basically ended up writing fiction based on her fictional fan's fictional fanfiction. Heh.

This one honestly maybe feels a little too strongly in touch with those fanfictional sensibilities when it comes to the relationship between Simon Snow and his vampiric frenemy-turned-boyfriend Baz, which gets a touch overdramatic for me in places. But it's at least an interestingly messy relationship. And there's plenty else going on here, too, including a guy who claims to be Simon's replacement as the prophesied Chosen One, a bit of difficulty involving a contract with a demon, and a couple of other budding romances, as well.

It didn't sweep me along quite as quickly or entertainingly as the first two books, I will admit, but it was still fun, and I still really like the way it addresses questions of what happens after the epic saga ends and everyone is left to figure out who they are in the aftermath. ( )

in short:



in long:

holy fucking shit. just. holy fucking shit. and by that i dont mean its a perfect book -it isn't, and you will hear my complaints loud and clear in a moment. but the screams are for the feelings i have for this entire trilogy. yes, i gave this one five stars. no, im not entirely sure its a five stars book by itself. yes, i am rating entirely based off vibes. also, baz. also, the fact that rainbow rowell listened to us and that one review thats been here since the news came out, and put snowbaz's relationship in rice. also, did i say baz? because, baz. baz.

this book feels a bit more solid than wayward son, i think, plot wise. its still, like, a loose kinda plot, same as carry on, where you know something is going on but you dont know entirely what it is. and then it all comes together, and this time its... a little underwhelming? but im not gonna lie to you chief, i straight up did not care, because im here for snowbaz. and snowbaz did i get.

"i can touch you less gently but i won't love you less kindly"? lives in my mind rent free. "i know he's the love of my life. (...) of a thousand lives stacked on top of each other"? delicious. "as if i wouldn't make the world spin backwards if i thought he'd like it better that way"? chef's kiss. "he doesn't have enough skin for my hands. i dont have enough room in my lungs for the way his hair smells"? when i say im on the floor. "be gentle with me, even though you don't have to"? dear GOD. the way i just had to stop reading to process some bits because i couldn't believe they were happening after the MESS (yeah i said it) that was wayward son. the entire time i was expecting things to be snatched away from my hands AND THEN THEY WEREN'T. I LOVE IT SO MUCH. theres so much tenderness and vulnerability and it feels so poignant real. (i will always hold rowell at gunpoint for not giving me more #pining baz, even in retrospect, from the watford days. can we get a novella? a short story? i know im asking for a lot but i just. need it. so badly.)

penelope and shepard are FINE i guess. ok no thats a lie, i like them. shepard especially. but i was so starved for snowbaz that theres no space in my mind for them. on that note: agatha is still so unnecessary why are we still talking about her? i get it shes not cruel or whatever but what has she added into anything ever, aside from drama? and what is up with the goats? how do they tie into the story, aside from the ebb thing? it was cute and tolerable i guess. it was just not... as interesting as the rest. and were the smith chapters necessary, too? i feel like i could have gone without them. im just. pissy about pov chapters because unless i connect with the character, i just dont wanna read em. i will. ill read them. but i dont want to.

regardless: im happy the big thing that irked me about carry on got solved here. felt kinda outta the blue, but its FINE they're magic people, i can forgive it. can you tell Im Here For Snowbaz? because i am. i just feel like im going to be thinking about them for the rest of my life. ALSO, HOLD ON. baz with his lil siblings?? making the baby sleep?? comforting him?? singing to him?? s i n g i n g t o h i m ? ? ? ? ? are you kidding me??? i feel personally attacked. its also criminal that simon didnt get to see that. holy shit.

i might go back and edit this into an actual review at some point, i might not. im honestly still processing. sitting with my feelings. reliving some moments. crying on my bathroom floor at the fact that its over. my only solace is that i can reread them, but thats not much solace at all.

oh no. the tears are coming. i must go. ( )

I pre-ordered the regular book but grabbed one of the "exclusive editions" anyway because those endpapers are pretty (by artist Kris Anka).

Reactions to this book seem to be mixed, but for my part, it's a fitting cap on a story out to subvert and/or deconstruct the fantasy "chosen one" trope. This is not the book that gives our happily ever after, because that's not the point, and it feels more real for it.

It's not a book I recommend reading without having read the earlier two, as much of what the characters do now has been influenced by what came before. It's no great commitment, in my opinion, and definitely worth it, two read all three books. ( )
