This Chick Read: Shadow Heir (Dark Swan #4) by Richelle Mead

It has been awhile since I had read Iron Crowned, the previous book in this series.  I remember loving the conclusion to that book, the dark place that Eugenie found herself and how she overcame that adversity.  I remember how Dorian tricked her, and how Kiyo tried to kill her.  That book was chock full of drama and passion!  I couldn’t possibly imagine how Richelle Mead would conclude this series, and how she could top all of that storyline, so I kept putting it off.  Well, for some reason I moved it to the top of my TBR list.  I was so disappointed!  Don’t get me wrong, it was very well written, as Richelle Mead can NOT write a bad book.  It just couldn’t live up to my memory of how much I had enjoyed Iron Crowned.
