This was a great ending to a wonderful series. Alliances that were formed and the final fight were excellent. I especially enjoyed the wakening of the great furies to finish off the Vord queen. There were a few loose ends that came up, like what happened to the great furies after they finished the Vord queen, or where the original group of Vord were that caused the Marat to come to Alera. I would love for another series in this universe.
