    Riggs never fails to create amazing characters, fascinating settings, and plot lines that take so many twists that it's impossible to know anything for sure. One thing I do know, however, is that I'm going to age a thousand years stressing about all this. I've only been into this series for ONE WEEK and not only have I finished all 5 books, but I'm already dying of the wait for the 6th. Someone, help me.

There are so many characters, and many of them are left out, which means we don't get closure for them. The romance and the characters barely get any development. I wanted - needed - more to like this book.

It's my favourite fantasy series of all time and I have a very strong sentimental attachment to it. I grew up with these characters and love them so much. But this, I'm sorry to say, was a major disappointment. I think the main issue is there were just too many things going on. The character count got way too high for any author to control. I needed more character development, which, seeing the amount of characters, is pretty much impossible to do in depth. Jacob and his reckless self-victimisation I-want-to-be-a-hero vibe just doesn't develop past that, and his relationship with Noor wasn't explored properly at all. Especially in contrast to Emma and Jacob's relationship. With Emma and Jacob, we saw the whole journey of their relationship which was extremely complex with many layers (I mean... she dated his grandfather and when they met she was loop trapped). So I wasn't a fan of Jacob-Noor at all - they barely developed and it felt very forced. Although I do appreciate Noor's representation, I still think we needed more. On the topic of characters... what happened to Horatio and Julius? Sharon? Miss Wren? Addison? Where was the closure? The characters just disappeared off the face of the earth. Fiona - did she get her tongue back? Maybe some mother dust? Enoch, is he okay? How does Emma really feel about Jacob and Noor and why was there no awkwardness? Horace and Julius? Millard was barely in the book... I mean what happened to his invisible army? Enoch's army of dead did barely anything. Surely Fiona would have been more useful in battle... And you're telling me there wasn't a single strong battle-ready peculiar left? Did the Americans all die? Did their war rage on? What about Leo? It was just such an unsatisfying ending. It was so picturesque. Too perfect. You really expect me to believe all powerful Caul and his army couldn't kill a single main character? I honestly wanted someone to die in some kind of unpredictable plot twist. I liked the 'Jacob turning into a hollowgast' twist, but I needed more than that. The battle was so lacklustre - where were the peculiar powers? No where near as epic as Gravehill or library of souls. Also, Noor's power. You would think she'd be more powerful than that. Because yes they can steal light (which is such a cool power) but what does that really do in combat? Not much. Sophie. What was up with her? What was her peculiarity? I wanted to know more. She just kinda made the call and had Penny. WHERE IS THE DEVELOPMENT??? And Sebbie. Where was the projections of light during the battle? Hughs bees? Bronwyn throwing people around? Where were the plot twists? It felt so dead and lacklustre and Jacob-centred. We get it, Jacob can control hollows. I expected more. Onto the writing. It was so slow paced. The fight lasts what, 50 pages? The conclusion is literally about 30 pages long. We had 30 pages after the big fight. To resolve all of the above... which Riggs unsurprisingly failed to do. Also the descriptions of Murnau cracked me up. I mean to me he looked like Jabba the Hutt... The ending felt really rushed and the story felt tired. He had 500 pages to develop the characters, which just... didn't happen. There are a few things I liked. I live for Addison. The plot twist with the prophecy was also clever. Bentham was a nice touch and so was Miss Avocet's death. But there were just so many other minor things that bugged me: V’s ressurection for like 3 seconds... really? Jacob self-obsessed self-pitying behaviour The WWI scene was a bit much Julius and Horace... queerbaiting? I love this series and always will. The first 5 books have a very special place in my heart. But this, this was an astronomical disappointment.

Not only does books 4,5 and 6 completely undo the original trilogy, it goes off on a completely irrelevant tangent, destroying figuratively all of the original characters one by one, except maybe Hugh, who remains as obsessed with Fiona as ever.

I don't understand why these sequels that add nothing to the plot, and do nothing but detract from them are becoming ever more popular amongst authors. I cannot fairly rate this higher than I already have.

If we look at the second trilogy (books 4-6) and compact it to the first than I must admit even though I very much liked map of days I found myself being underwhelmed by the last two instalments of the series. The characters spend a lot of time sneaking away behind miss peregrines back, and, whilst as the series has gone on a can’t really stand any of the yembrenes,  she doesn’t deserve that so often. Everything during this point just became predictable. It was the same old, same old.  Sneak off, travel to loop, fight a baddie, come back to devils acre. Even in the conference of the birds I found myself not particularly liking Noor. There’s nothing bad about her but I don’t feel like she’s a particularly useful character through it all, I don’t really like the “chose one for fills a prophesy” trope. she barley even uses her power in the last book apart from the end. Though I understand why Emma and Jacob broke up (let’s act like we weren’t all rooting for that to happen), I don’t think he needed to have another love interest, not so quickly and definitely not with Noor who’s rather bland. Also there has become such a huge cast that half the time I can’t keep track of who’s who and what power they had. On every excursion too many people tagged along when they had no reason to be there. Throughout this book I found myself wishing it would end quicker. I give it three stars mainly for nostalgia because the the first trilogy was so good with setting up world building and though a map of days it had potential. I was disappointed.

Same great pace, same adventure, same absorbing story of good vs evil. Except: it needed a good edit, and there was a multitude of mistakes. Characters had dialogue although they weren’t supposedly present in a scene, Jacob explained a character doing or saying something when in the previous chapter that character had taken their leave from the main story and weren’t actually there. Mix ups with character names. These mistake All’s well that ends well. I liked this last instalment of this series. Same great pace, same adventure, same absorbing story of good vs evil.

There’s were also far too many characters to keep a track of, which left not much opportunity for character growth. And also they’re stories just finished at the battle, we didn’t get their endings - which after spending so much time with them was a bit of a let down. I was invested in the likes of Horatio, and Addison, and many others but have no closure for them. In the end, I liked it but didn’t love it.

    So anyways... The ship has officially sunk. No Emma and Jacob in this book. Like we had the first trilogy with these couple, but the newest ones replace her with Noor. It is an unsettling feeling.

    Yes yes yes yes! I was just scrolling through my want to read section and found that there was now a confirmed release date, title, cover and description for this book. I finished the Conference of the Birds in two days and now can’t wait to get my greasy mitts on the final installation into this killer series. I cannot decide whether I even want this series to end!

The author tied in old photographs in the first three books much more seamlessly, and it felt a bit forced and gimmicky to me in the last three.

Overall, I felt that the actual execution of the last three books was also a bit lacking. Do I regret reading all six books? No. But also I regret reading very few books in life. This book was definitely interesting and I like following interesting and compelling characters through to the author's conclusion (which is why I often choose not to pick up a series until it's finished). I'm not sure I would have made the same choices in the story had I written or edited this book. The relationships felt a little stale and forced, in general but especially between Jacob and Noor, and I wondered a few times whether some characters were acting unusual or if I just forgot what they were like since I've read the last three books as they were released instead of quickly together. Riggs is good at plot twists-- there's often unforseen turns throughout the book, partly because the world he created is pretty eccentric. Maybe because of this, I felt lost at times in this last book. I felt like he opened up ideas without fully exploring them, at least to my satisfaction. Perhaps there are plans for more books to flesh some of those ideas out, but it felt rushed and incomplete at times. I feel like these books are marketed to the general ya crowd, which is probably the right audience. However, I do think maybe readers should know that there's a pretty high body count in this book, and death and bleak philosophies are at the core of the book. It's not problematic, per se, but also not everyone's cup of tea. I did feel like the author/ Jacob were overly apathetic about how many people died in this one. There was basically no consideration of death and killing, even though there's a lot of it here, and often at Jacob's hands. I had a hard time keeping track of all the characters. I wanted to care about everyone, but the plot moved fast and Jacob mostly spent time with half a dozen people. I still felt I had to keep track of maybe a dozen more characters on top of that, and it was just too much. Also, too many characters have names that start with H. I had to stop and think about which H character was mentioned every time. The ending itself was very neat and tied everything back to the beginning pretty nicely. That being said, everything else is so morally grey that I was not totally pleasantly surprised by the happy ending. I wanted more grit there, but instead even Noor, an outsider to the beginning story, is content to go back to the Cairnholm loop. I usually can sum up the basic idea behind a book or series pretty easily when I'm finished. This series was clearly touching on discrimination, fitting in, being weird, and finding confidence at its core. There's the ww2-esque fight against a clearly evil force that almost wins (with frequent allusions to real ww2). Books 4-6 touch on government and authority, as well as how Jacob's relationships change as he matures, most particularly shown through Jacob's relationships with Emma, his grandpa, and Miss Peregrine. That being said, I'm not 100% that I get what Riggs was really trying to say. It wasn't clear he knew himself and was maybe just exploring ideas without a clear philosophy. Or maybe I just didn't get this book, which made me fall away from the other five, too. I'd give it 2 stars, maybe 2.5. Mostly I was disappointed that the author seemed to lose control of the story. It was very interesting and I would recommend the series to others... But I felt that the story wasn't quite what it should have been. Maybe that's the editor's fault, I guess, but the last three books needed a bit more polishing. Stopping at book three is probably an ok move, though finishing all six isn't a total waste of time, either.

    It's here!!! The moment the book was in my hands I started reading. I mean with a ending like the last one, what do you expect! Very, very worth it! If you haven't read the first five in a while, re-read them first. (The book makes perfect since if you don't. But Riggs makes a LOT of references to previous books.) (And re-reads are so much fun anyway.) This is the last book in the series (nooooo!) and it is so very worth the wait! New Hollows, old characters thought dead... loop jumps as well as It's here!!!

I really, really wish there was a novella or something where Jake and Abe Portman accidentally meet up in a loop hop. There were a lot of references to how Abe knew all about what Jake can do, but to real answers for HOW?!? And that's always a stories I've really wanted to read! ;)
