A Million Tears and Clockwork Angels (five stars)
This may be the most incoherent thing I’ve ever written despite it being, you know, AN ENTIRE WEEK since I finished this thing? Please accept my most heartfelt apology if I end up chanting in Turtle.
MOST IMPORTANTLY: Those last 100 pages were sorrow and heartbreak and that epilogue, man. A whole new definition of bittersweet.
I’m so serious. I went through like half a box of tissues because I was actually sobbing. And that’s how my house flooded and I became homeless and now live in a library in the middle of Hermit Woods. Which has of course never happened before.
My main critique for this book is that even I’ll admit the plot dragged a bit. There were several scenes that felt a bit repetitive and somewhat filler-y. However, the freaking emotional trauma I was put through…I HAVE NO OTHER WORDS (mostly cuz ya girl figured she wouldn’t have to take notes. And now all I remember is the ending).
Anyway, I felt like the character development was spot-on and Cassie did a fantastic job of tying up all the loose ends and answering all of our burning questions. While personally I don’t very much care for Cecily or Gabriel, I did feel that their arcs were well handled.
AND THOSE FLIPPING ROMANCES-
Look. Am I happy with the way things ended up? UM NO I’M CRYING but also YES. This is a terrible review but if you want to see a spoilery rant, be sure to check out my Goodreads account because I’ll be posting one in the next few days. Catch ya soon, and never forget the story of Will, Tessa, and Jem. Au revoir!
