In the epic conclusion to Soman Chainani’s New York Times bestselling series, The School for Good and Evil, everything old is new again as Sophie and Agatha fight the past as well as the present to find the perfect end to their story.
As A World Without Princes closed, the end was written and former best friends Sophie and Agatha went their separate ways. Agatha was whisked back to Gavaldon with Tedros and Sophie stayed behind with the beautiful young School Master.
But as they settle into their new lives, their story begs to be re-written, and this time, theirs isn’t the only one. With the girls apart, Evil has taken over and the villains of the past have come back to change their tales and turn the world of Good and Evil upside down.
Readers around the world are eagerly awaiting the third book in The School for Good and Evil series, The Last Ever After. This extraordinary conclusion delivers more action, adventure, laughter, romance and fairy tale twists and turns than you could ever dream of!
I loved getting to meet some of the ‘famous’ fairy tale characters. And the twists their stories took. (Though I could have done without a geriatric Peter Pan… Poor Peter!!) Merlin was hilarious, and spot on if you like the way he’s portrayed in The Sword In The Stone.
I also liked the surprise twist with Hort, as well as the fact the witch coven played big roles in this book again. All the books have been a fun read, but this one was a little bittersweet too since it’s the last one. Agatha did a lot of worrying about not being a good Queen. She was scared, and she and Tedros had a lot of fights/squabbles through out the book. But she didn’t realize that he was insecure too.
I liked that we got to see yet another side of Agatha, as well as a new dimension of Tedros. (Though in the beginning I mostly wanted to smack him. And then he started actually explaining himself to Agatha and it got better!) Sophie was nearly perfect. I mean, she was a little annoying at times. But as far as her reactions to everything that was happening to and around her? They were spot on for how I see her character.
I never liked Rafal though. Which since he is Evil in more than the ‘good verses evil’ way, works. But even when he was being sweet with Sophie I didn’t like him.
There were so many twists in this! Some of them completely unexpected. Most added to the plot, but a few I just kind of was like “well okay then…” I liked this book over-all, and if you’ve read the other two books in the series you should read this one as well. But I think I liked the first two books better than this one. I still liked this book, it just didn’t click with me quite as much.
