Writing was pretty simple in this one, even more than the original trilogy. There was no great detail in any of it, as the story was mostly plot-driven. There were no wasted words. If it didn't advance the story, it wasn't there. I can appreciate that. The dialogue wasn't the most original but it was okay.
I have to admit that I was not expecting the end. I thought for sure it would end with the Circle facing off with the Hunters, but that didn't happen. Also that whole last bit was Scarlett was a surprise for sure. This was a fairly quick read, so the plot advanced at a fast pace, which was good since there wasn't a whole lot of extra in there.
