Nestled along the bluffs of the forested coast lies the secret kingdom of the Omte–a realm filled with wonder…and as many secrets.
The Ever After closes the last trilogy of the long-running Trylle series.

I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I was excited to continue my journey with the Omte Trilogy and see how the series came to a close. I did enjoy the book, however it did not live up to my expectations of what I thought it was going to be. I felt that beginning drug on a bit and it could have been shortened and it would have given the reader just as much information. Some of it was actually kind of confusing trying to figure out what was happening and who all the different places and tribes were. Once I got past that part though it got better and I got more engaged in it. I especially liked the final battle scene where you get all these different monster described and I just was imagining them in my head.

The story was written well, but I did feel again the beginning was a little drawn out and confusing. Once it got going the story really got going and it was exciting to see where it was going to take you. It was nice seeing a lot of the characters from the previous books come together and become involved in the story once again. I was happy with how it ended mostly, there was one death that I was super upset about because it did not seem like they had to die and then there were some I was happy about. The book had some adventure, romance, drama, and even some funny parts.

The characters were well written and of course I was rooting for the good guys to win. I also was rooting for Ulla and Pan and I was not disappointed so I was happy about that. I was actually surprised there was a steamy scene in this one and there haven’t been those in the others, or even really the other series. The supporting character I liked that they got a good amount of time and you learned more about them. I especially liked what we learned about Jem.

Overall this has been a fun series to read and I have enjoyed getting to once again be part of the Tryell universe. It is fun to see how all the different series come together again in this one.
