A Masterpiece, and Stunning Series Conclusion – Guest Review by Hayley

The final book in a series has rather high expectations attached to it.  Especially in a series such as this one, where the characters and plots are intertwined so tightly, each book flowing into the next, and the entire series spanning only a single summer.  The final instalment is not only the completion of one story, but of the many tales of each character we have come to know.

Worthy of Legend” is such a conclusion that fulfils all the duties of a finale in ways that leave the reader both fully satisfied with the ending, and absolutely aching that such a stunning series has to end at all.

If I had to choose my favourite leading characters of the series, it would likely be Bram and Emily.  I adored each of them, and it was an absolute joy to follow their story in “Worthy of Legend.  I loved the depth to these characters, and the beautiful reflection of Christ-like love and mercy that they extend towards others, who give them every reason to hate them instead.

I think one of the things that makes this book feel so very real are the juxtapositions it portrays.  It paints pictures of life’s greatest beauties such as love, laughter, loyalty and mercy.  It also portrays some of the most unimaginable cruelty and evil that is found in humanity, and asks the question of how God judges those who willfully partake in it, while still extending His hand of mercy.

You can probably deduce by now that “Worthy of Legend” is not a particularly light read.  Much of it made me laugh out loud, while just as much of it was sobering.  

But I wouldn’t change it.  Every fibre of this story is woven together to create a masterpiece.  I am grateful to have been a reader of this book, and the entire series as a whole.
