[Coffee Shop Talks] If I Could Change the Ending of This Book I Would






Of all the books I've read, I think Shadow Heir had the most unsatisfying series ending. I adored Dark Swan and I recommended it to everyone...until I finished the last book. I haven't recommended it to anyone since then. 

I can't say too much about the conclusion because it wouldn't make any sense unless I used some pretty big spoilers. So I'm not going into any details. All I can say is that when I invest so much of my time and emotions into characters that I've come to love, I get upset when I feel like they have been wronged. It's also upsetting to me when a series ends and I'm pissed off at one of my favorite characters. It's over and I'll never know if the problem will be resolved and I just have to deal with it. 



Is there an ending you would like to change?

I would like to change the ending to Allegiant by Veronica Roth!

Would it be overkill if I nominate the last Sookie Stackhouse book?

I feel so out of it, I haven't read this one. The only ones I can think of are the Mona Lisa series by Sunny but thats only because I don't think the series ever really ended, she just stopped writing which was really frustrating since I enjoyed the series quit a bit.

I totaly agree with you on this one. The ending felt like a cop out. It could have been done in a much better way.
Like the comment above, I would like the ending to Allegiant changed, although I still have to read this one but knowing the ending puts me off.

That is unfortunate. I love Richelle Mead. Haven't read this series though.

I would love to see a different ending to Allegiant. I haven't finished the Sookie Stackhouse series yet but a few people have told me they didn't care for the ending. I was already putting off the series and that made it worse.

ITA, Cat! I was so pissed off at the ending of this book. I wanted to shake someone, lol!

I'm trying to think while I'm reading this if there is a book I'd change. I'm sure there is, but I can't think of any.

Sorry to hear about the end of this one for you.

Jo said...

Oh, I completely agree with you on this one! I loved this series, and that last book was full of wtfery.

OMG Yes! The ending was horrible and I felt so bad for you know who...being lied to and all. But maybe, who knows, the author might decide to revisit this series. I hope she does. I think this book was out about the same time that the VA spinoff series was getting release, so I'm guessing the author's focus went to develop the new series and Shadow Heir got the short end of the stick.
