Author - Soman Chainani
Series - The School for Good and Evil #3

In the epic conclusion to 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 conclusion delivers more action, adventure, laughter, romance and fairy tale twists and turns than you could ever dream of!

The Last Ever After is the final book in the School for Good and Evil it takes place just after the end of the second book with Agatha choosing this time Tedros over Sophie for her happy ever after. Leaving Sophie with the young school master who wants to be her happy ever after even if they are evil. However things aren’t as easy for Agatha and Tedros back in her village with him just a normal boy and they are forced to hide of with the village determined to have their heads. Deciding that neither one will be happy without Sophie since she’s their best friend they must return to the school to get her.

It’s only after returning to the school that they learn the fate of Sophie and what it means for their friends as well as the schools. Now that Evil has truly won they schools are both evil even the former Ever’s are evil doing the bidding of the School Master who is determined to win Sophie’s heart so he can use her for his sinister plans. That’s not all that’s changed he’s raised the villains once dead to change their stories slaying the elderly heroes and hunting Agatha and Tedros. Will they be able to save and fix everything before it’s too late or will this be the end of everything that they have known.

I adore Agatha she’s clearly one of my favorites in the series  but that’s because she’s such a good person willing to step aside for her best friend. I admit in the book I did have a few moments of wanting to toss it across the room thanks to Sophie and Tedros but they redeemed themselves in the end. I love our little witch coven who worked hard to save the school as well as their friends. I also really enjoyed the old fairy tales it was so much fun seeing old tinker bell and Peter even the white rabbit.

I’ve been impatiently waiting for this moment the conclusion to one of my favorite series came out. Than the moment it did I just wasn’t ready to say goodbye to my favorite world. It was clear right from the start that The Last Ever After was going to be impossible to put down, and I almost finished the whole book in one day. A truly amazing end to a series that has kept me spellbound right from the beginning. The story is captivating with enchanting characters evil sorcery’s princes and even a few witches. I love the characters I was able to connect with them right from the start after all I have been attached to them since the first book. The Last Ever After is an emotional whirlwind just when you think you have it figured out it surprises you full of twists and turns. I honestly love this series and I know for a fact it will be a re-read in the future because I’m going to miss Agatha and Sophie. I feel the author did an amazing job creating a beautifully written series that captured my heart as well as my imagination. If you are a fan of fairytales this is a must for you.  I just wow loved the whole series of The School of Good and Evil but this was the best.
