The Snow Owl concludes The Alder Tales and as such, you would expect to have the loose ends tied up. R.S. McCoy does this in such a way that your heart is pounding as you read through the book. You WANT that happy ending, and yet you are really unsure if you will get it.
Each of the pairs we have met previously get their time. We catch up with all of them and so we understand on an even deeper level just how their lives will change going forward. There is a whole new twist to the story too, that I for one did not see coming.
This author manages to turn something around on it's head, until you are unsure if you are rooting for the character, or loathe them. Stunning wordsmithery!
There were no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. The pacing was smooth, as were the transitions from one scene to the next. I absolutely recommend this book, but I would also recommend you start from the beginning. This is a series, and not a set of standalones.
