~ MY REVIEW ~
A nice conclusion to the Faery Rebels series by R.J. Anderson! I perhaps didn't enjoy Arrow as much as the first two books ... I know Knife was definitely my favorite.
Arrow had more magic than Book 1 at least. It made me a bit uncomfortable; not sure what to think. There are some good and poignant sort of allegories and themes to this book, but I still wasn't sure about some elements. Hmm. It's hard to know. There was some seemingly unresolved issues of revenge/bitterness too.
I don't think these books are Christian, but there is the 'Great Gardener' who could almost be a being who represents God. I don't know. And there's a white 'naming stone', which is strikingly similar to a white stone mentioned in Revelation. It's kind of funny; I'm not sure if the author was at all trying for that comparison, but I was reading Revelation, Chapter 2, and it was speaking about a stone that reminded me so much of the one in this book! *grin*
Anyway. A sweet, clean, and subtle romance. That was pleasant. And cute, <3
We interact with characters from the other books, such as Paul, Peri (Knife), Linden, Rob, Timothy, and others. And we have a new character (or at least I don't remember her from before): Rosemari, who belongs to a peaceful faery group, secluded from the rest. We continue the battle against the evil Jasmine, who's determined to take every faery captive by stealing their true names.
I usually really enjoy novels about faeries. And I did enjoy this one! Some of the magic just bothered me a bit. It was interesting and kept me reading ... and I may have to pick up Swift and Nomad sometime! *smiles*
