I just finished the 3rd book.
I'm heartbroken over the ending! I wanted them to have a happy ending.
I really did enjoy the series, though. Now I need to find a new good book that hopefully doesn't come from the teen section. LOL
There is something about words. In expert hands, manipulated deftly, they take you prisoner. Wind themselves around your limbs like spider silk, and when you are so enthralled you cannot move, they pierce your skin, enter your blood, numb your thoughts. Inside you they work their magic. ~ The Thirteenth Tale
Yeah I wanted a happy ending too.
ME TOO! I was really, really upset. My sister told me she adored the books and that they were almost as good as Twilight. I did get into them (not as much as Twilight) but at the end I was fuming! I called her and told her they totally upset me. It was heartbreaking!
I finally finished last night. I was a little shocked at how it just ended. It seemed like it wasn't completely done. I kind of like my endings wrapped up with nice neat little bows, and with this one there was all this alluding to the bright future, but no solid information -- Nothing seemed completely finished. I guess that leaves it open for another book though.

I'm now trying to figure out what to read next, and unlike Laura, I am actually looking for something in the teen section (or in the Accelerated Reader Program at least.) I currently have 98.5 points in AR and am winning for this 9 weeks among the teachers who participate. I'm only beating one by a couple of points though. I'm dying to start the Southern Vampire series, but it isn't AR. I'll most likely pick up Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson or The Book Thief. I didn't get to read it when I checked it out, because I started on TSFT by Bray.
