Overall great series
As a new to me author, I greatly enjoyed the series overall. The world building is great and I loved the journey through the Darkwood with all its mystical creatures even the hobnies. I love the bond that Neeve and Rose create over the course of the series. I also enjoyed that the main focus was on that bond and not just romantic interests even though there was a little. I love the twist of the prophecy. Just goes to show it’s all up to interpretation. All around I enjoyed the series as a whole. It was a slow start but that just leads to great world building. I have to say that I was invested in the characters and the story.
