I liked the last half of this book a lot better than the first half of it, but I don't think I'm ever going to like Rand. Most of this book, I was hoping Rand would disappear. Well, maybe not but I really didn't want Joile to end up with him but that's not going to happen now I know.
The big surprise wasn't really that much of a surprise. That is one of the reasons that I liked the end of the book more than the start of it. I'm annoyed that Joile is now the Queen of the Underworld - the war was to prevent Bella from becoming queen, but now Joile is!
