First of all, I have to say that the absolute worst thing about this book was the stupid cover art. If I had not read the previous books in this series, I would have dropped this thing like a hot potato for looking WAY too much like a cheap romance. It did this unique and complex story no justice what-so-ever. In this final book in the Doctrine of Labyrinths series, the author nicely ties up many loose ends. The brothers come to some sort of understanding, and Felix (finally !!!) begins to grow up and act more like a decent human being. I don't want to give too much away, but Sarah Monette stays true to her usual complex characterization and the brothers' relationship doesn't come to a neat "storybook" ending. Yet I still felt relatively satisfied. On the negative side, you never really do find out what happened back in Melusine. Lots of loose ends here if the author ever decides to revisit this world. And the introduction of yet another character given voice in Kay is just absurd. He should have stayed a minor character in the background. But overall I was quite happy to have read this series and will look for future books by this author for sure. For all the fantastical elements in her books, nobody writes such realistic interpersonal relationships and inner torment like Monette!
