SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS:

In the epic next chapter of Soman Chainani’s New York Times bestselling series, The School for Good and Evil, everything old is new again as Sophie and Agatha fight the past as well as the present to find the perfect end to their story.

As A World Without Princes closed, the end was written and former best friends Sophie and Agatha went their separate ways. Agatha was whisked back to Gavaldon with Tedros and Sophie stayed behind with the beautiful young School Master.

But as they settle into their new lives, their story begs to be re-written, and this time, theirs isn’t the only one. With the girls apart, Evil has taken over and the villains of the past have come back to change their tales and turn the world of Good and Evil upside down.

Readers around the world are eagerly awaiting the third book in The School for Good and Evil series, The Last Ever After. This extraordinary new journey delivers more action, adventure, laughter, romance and fairy tale twists and turns than you could ever dream of!

LIKENESS SCALE:❤❤❤❤❤ (and more)

MY THOUGHTS:

I really LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this series. The third book really was the best book for me. It was superbly executed. The plot was paced right, every character had matured in different ways. Agatha, Tedros and Sophie get each a chance  for there Ever or Never After. They needed to fight there own doubts, fears and realise that despite this, there own happily ever afters were worth fighting for. I really liked the story of the scorpion and the frog. It was about trust and betrayal and it fitted perfectly in the story. Every character from book 1 and 2 evolved into something that made this third book EPIC. Other new character like Merlin and Cinderella added sass to the story. In the end, everything worked out into something Good and most of the loose ends were tied up, except of course for the future.

A five hearts (and more) rating was given because:

  • The story was great.
  • The villain was worth fighting.
  • I really, really would love to read the  whole series again
  • A lot of revelations in this book that tied up loose ends
  • It was the conclusion for this series which I was yearning for
  • The story reminds us that there are different kinds of LOVE

As a couple, Tedros and Agatha were very normal. They have there own flaws and are scared to look weak. In my opinion, it takes courage to acknowledge these flaws and love at the same time. Everyone should read this series to learn that fairytales are not perfect (you can have an ever after of your own). I love how Sophie accepted her ever after, but I’m hoping that she would eventually like Hort. I think that they would make a cute and entertaining couple.

I heard that there would be a fourth book to this series. I will definitely read this (The School for Good and Evil: Quests for Glory) because I am truly in love with this series.
