I really liked this. I liked catching up with Q and Tess and I loved seeing them get their happy ending…however, the reason I can only rate it 3.75 stars is because it was a very slow read for me. There there was a LOT of redundancy – in both action and inner character dialogue.
At the end of Quintessentially Q, there is a note from the author in which she discusses how she originally intended this to be only a two book series, but she states:
“I can’t wrap up Q and Tess’s story in just one chapter. After everything they’ve been through, it’s only fair to give them a Happily Ever After…so, I hope you can forgive me for writing a third and final book in the Monsters in the Dark series.”
While I totally understand and respect that, I also feel that the crux of this third book could have been delivered via an extended epilogue at the end of Q or written as a third, more novella style book. Like I said earlier, I just felt that there was a lot of redundancy and, quite frankly, it seemed to drag on forever with a lot of unnecessary “issues” and scenes.
Don’t get me wrong though, I LOVED Tess and Q and I loved this series. I would recommend it to anyone and, while I may not have loved this final installment, I feel that the series as a whole was outstanding. Truly epic.
