Reviews Dawn Study (Soulfinders, #3; Study, #6)

  • Khanh, first of her name, mother of bunnies
    I hated this book. I fucking LOVED this entire series, books 1-5. Even books 2-3 in the Poison Study series because Yelena was so fucking awesome. The Soulfinders books 1-2. Wow. Just wow. Even better because of the inclusion of my beloved Valek as a narrative voice, but man, this book was such a clusterfuck, and it breaks my heart to say this.It was boring. It was SO boring. Valek started to sound like a generic whiny asinine male instead of Val...

    "You are more beautiful to me today than yesterday. Each day when I think I can't possibly love you any more than I do, you prove me wrong." Look, I promised that there would be a full review of this book but really, I'm a liar. The problem is that I have a lot of spoilery thoughts and hardly anyone has read these books so I don't want to risk spoiling anyone who's looking to read these books in the future! This series is honestly one that I will...

    It literally hurt my heart to give this book anything but 5 stars, but here we are; a massive puddle of disappointment. The Study series is my precious. After waiting many years in the hopes that Yelena would grace my life with more books my dream came true. And now we're at the absolute end(I assume so anyhow) and I'm mad. Dawn Study what the hell? It's not even the story, although there was nothing super stellar or shocking about it(in fact, it...

    Dawn Study was all I could have hoped for from the ninth, and final, Chronicles of Ixia novel. I admit that it wasn’t perfect, but it was a brilliant ending to a truly wonderful series. I’ve read all of the Ixia books – the Study series, the Glass series, the Soulfinders series, and the short stories – excluding Shattered Glass. I planned to pick that one up before reading this, yet when NetGalley approved my request, I was too excited. ...

    Boy, was this bad...If I had to sum the whole thing up with a gif, it would be:Shall we talk about the characters first? They were flat, flat, flat. Flat as an open bottle of soda left in the fridge for three days. Valek was so frustrating! He needed some anger management classes, all he felt was fury, rage, anger... Yelena was also a train wreck. I mean, lady, you're pregnant! I'm not saying that pregnant women should be wrapped in bubble wrap, ...

    “Our herd may roam, but we all know where is home.” I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT THIS AMAZING SERIES IS OVER!!! As per usual, I’m in the minority when it comes to my feelings about a book. Most reviews seem to state that this final instalment in the Ixian Chronicles is the weakest of the 6, but I still firmly believe that Fire Study is the only one deserving of that title, as it’s the sole instalment that earned a mere 4.5-star rating for me. ...
  • Bee (Heart Full of Books)
    I loved how all the characters came together for one final book! I really hope there's more to come in this world - perhaps with the next generation, because I will seriously miss Ixia and Sitia too much! Poison Study is one of my all-time favourites and now I've read 9 books worth with the characters, which is the longest time I've ever stayed in one world.I though Dawn Study was a fun end to the series, maybe slightly anticlimactic, but just ge...

  • Coleen (The Book Ramblings)
    This is bittersweet. The Study and Soulfinders series are the only series I have ever read in full and completed. The only two series that I will recommend to anyone without hesitation. So while it is sad to see it come to an end, I think it was a solid ending to Yelena and Valek's story. While I loved being in their world again and coming along for their adventurous, dangerous, and love filled journey with all their friends and enemies, it becam...
  • ShoSho
    I hate to do this but I can't give more than 3 stars to this book. I only liked it and didn't love it.It was very repetitive and long , it also got boring at times. It's not a good sign when I'm not sleepy but I choose to sleep rather than reading a few more chapters.I lost count of times the characters were captured, rescued , relocated and got captured again. Valek and Yelena weren't the power couple they always are. Almost all of their plans w...
  • Marta Cox
    Four and a half from me I started this journey with Yelena and Valek way back in Poison Study and although the author has fleshed out her world by shining a light on peripheral characters these two have always dominated it for me. It's with a little sadness that I realise their story is probably now told but wow what a way to end this spin off Soulfinder series .At the end of the previous book Night Study readers were left wondering just how a pe...
  • Terri ♥ (aka Mrs. Christian Grey)
    While I may have a strong dislike for Opal and her choices, I absolutely love Valek and Yelana and hate this series comes to an end. All the side characters are great save Opal. This was a wonderful edition to the series that kept moving. I didn't find myself bored. Only at the end did I regret it was over. The narrator did a fantastic job and I'll hear her voice of Valek in my head forever. Gah, I want more. It hurts my heart to think I'll never...
  • Yoda
    This one had so much action I had to take small breaks to process all that was happening at all times. Every time they made a plan it was ruined by some new information or thing happening. It was a bit too much. Its still getting 5 stars but only because of the nostalgic feelings I have for Maria V. Snyder and Ixia/Sitia. I love Yelena/Valek but Janco was the most interesting pov. And I wish there was a bit less of "You sound like Janco", "Thats ...
  • Sarah
    I fell in love with Yelena and Valek in Poison Study and have been a devoted fan of this series ever since then. Maria V. Snyder has created such a wonderful world along with so many favourite characters and I just devour each new instalment so I'm pretty heartbroken that Dawn Study is the final book. If you're going to end a series then it has to be on a high note though and she has definitely achieved that goal here. This book was action packed...
  • Nemo (The Moonlight Library)
    This review was originally posted on The Moonlight LibraryI don't even know where to start with this book.You know how each instalment of a series is supposed to be more epic than the last?Well, at one point Snyder has something like 28 characters 'onscreen', all with different motivations, characterisations, and backstories, including small children with more sass than they have the right to be.I don't know how she managed to keep it all straigh...
  • Kirsty (Amethyst Bookwyrm)
    Thanks to Netgalley and HQ for giving me this book to review.Dawn Study is the brilliant final novel in the Soulfinders series, which is well written and action-packed but a bit slow. I also found it a bit repetitive and I did not fear that the main characters were ever in danger.Yelena disappointed me a bit with her lack of trust and being self-destructive despite being pregnant. Valek is feeling very protective of Yelena and I felt it changed h...
  • Mei
    I'm really sorry to say that this was NOT as good as the previous books!Valek was one of my favorit heroes for his coolness and smart, but here he was just an average possessive and super-protective males! It was such a disappointement!Jelena too was not as good as she was before. She keeps doubting Valek constantly putting herself in danger because of that!The story could have been interesting, but it kept jumping around several POVs and situati...

    IM SO SAD THAT ITS OVER!!This review was originally posted at https://freadomlibrary.wordpress.com/CriticallyPlot – 4.5 out of 5 starsI am running out of things to say about these books because you all know that I absolutely love this entire series. This book is just as action packed and full of suspense and drama and mystery. All the pieces that have been floating around since the beginning finally begin to fit together and spread. There’s d...
  • Crazy4Books
    The Chronicles of Ixia consist of 3 trilogies; Poison Study, Storm Glass and Soulfinder. They're all in the same world and in chronological order but the Storm Glass trilogy follows a different characters perspective. I didnt get a chance to read the Storm Glass trilogy yet but I plan on getting to it now that I know the characters from the other 2 trilogies are present for a lot of the books. Dawn Study was a great ending to a fantastic series a...

    I'm going to warn you that I am not someone who is fawning over this book. I disliked it immensely. It was a copy and paste book; a wash- rinse- repeat book. Each chapter was the same...go to help solve everything, get caught or get hurt, heal and on to the next issue. Nothing different.I could say that the ending was a surprise to me -but it wasn't -the author couldn't chance having her fans hate her if she chose to do it in any other manner. It...

    Hmm, I'm having mixed feelings. First of all, I can't wrap my head around the fact that Valek and Yelena's story is now officially over like holy hell. I think I read the first in the Poison Study series three years ago, so for now to have an official ending to their adventures, wow.But I wasn't completely.. Let's say, content, with this whole series. I mean, don't get me wrong, I loved the fact that Valek and Yelena (and Ari and Janco) didn't en...
  • colleen the convivial curmudgeon
    I've really liked this series overall, though it has had its fair share of issues... but I couldn't help but be a little disappointed with this final installment, especially the end.Before I jump ahead too far, though... One complaint I've seen about this book is the fact that so much of it revolves around someone getting captured, and then the group mounting a rescue. Rinse, wash, repeat. This is not an unfair assessment. My only counter would a...
