I did like the ending and it did leave you with a slight cliff hanger, like the first reviewer said. I think what Ewing was trying to convey was that evil would still be in the world and that's why other Daughters would be needed. Maybe that's why it ended the way it did, but I'm only guessing.
There were a two loose ends that weren't made clear. Like the other review said, I don't remember the book mentioning that Vanessa was a Goddess of Pandora, maybe it was in the prologue but I don't exactly remember. Or perhaps that was just understood from book 7; I don't know. Also if anyone remembers book 10, Maggie's book. She was supposed to have a son that was going to play a role in their destiny. I remember reading that towards the end of book 10. However we didn't find out who that son was.
We also find out what happened to the Sons of the Dark in this book, and why there is not a 5th one. I don't think Ewing really wanted that series to end, but I guess since it didn't sell well, she had to take care of them in some way.
In conclusion, I was really satisfied with the series as a whole and loved every book in it. Ewing's writing is really compelling and keeps you wanting to read more. I think all the fans of this series will enjoy this book. I sure did!
My favorite line is this book was when Stanton said "hoochi mama" lol that was funny!
Perhaps now I should start on her Sisters of Isis Series. =)
Personally I'm sad I finished it so fast. I've been reading this series since I was about 15 and I'm 21 now. In spite of it being a teen book, I love this series and will miss anticipating new books. Her writing was always the exact inspiration I needed to write my own stories. In this final book, Lynne Ewing keeps her writing at the same top notch as the other 12 but as much as the ending ended on a happy note, I still felt sorry for Vanessa. If you've followed the series since Day 1, I dont have to tell you twice to get this book. And even for people getting into it, of all the teen books out there that repeat the same magical fantasy crap in different ways, this series is unique and will capture every emotion from you possible.
One last note I'll say about the book that bugged me. For one, she forgot to tie up an end that happened toward the end of the book and juding by the last page it makes me wonder if she ever plans on coming back to it one day or she really did want to leave it hanging like that. And two...unless maybe I forgot from the previous books, why was there no mention at all about Vanessa being a Daughter of Pandora?
As far as the series ending and her working on Sisters of Isis...to me two of those girls sound like distant versions of Vanessa and Catty from what I read of blurbs online. I probably would have preferred a sequal series of another generation of Daughters of The Moon and having that hanging part from Book 13 closed.
So anyways, like I said, I really liked this book, and found it wasn't hard for me to follow along, even though I had skipped over a majority of the series. I think its because I feel I already know the characters pretty well, which is also what made this final book so sad. It was definitely a bittersweet ending for the daughters of the moon, and it was sad to see that all of them didn't make it, although I didn't expect that they would anyway. One of them does have a semi-happy ending though (don't worry, I'm not naming any names!) and another thing is that this book leaves you with a slight cliffhanger, which I think had to do with the fact that Jimena (who is now a mentor) was preparing for the new group of daughters, which just goes to show that although the atrox had finally been destroyed, there was obviously more evil leftover. So that being said, I hope the author decides to come out with a new Daughters of the Moon series (although no characters will ever be better than the original) and perhaps she will let us know what became of the remaining original daughters after the book ended!
