    • 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 Valek the Great, One of My Three Book Boyfriends, and [...]


    • "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 hold close to my heart forever because it's just s [...]


    • 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 was overly repetitive; capture, rescue, scheme, c [...]


    • 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. I couldn’t hold back – I had to read this one. [...]


    • Boy, was this badIf 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, but I don't think it's healthy for them to go gallivanti [...]





    • 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 getting to live with these characters for another 35 [...]

    • 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 went wrong.They got it right at the end but I wasn' [...]


    • 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 be able to visit these characters again.


    • 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", "That´s what Janco would say" and "You´ve been spending [...]


    • 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 peaceful life could ever be on the cards as someone [...]


    • 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 became repetitive. It was just a repeated cycle of plot [...]


    • 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 from beginning to end, we get a chance to catch u [...]


    • Usually, when a series ends, it ends well and any attempts to continue it just make the story go downhill. That's why it took me a year to read Shadow Study. Ms. Snyder amazes me by creating a continuation of an amazing series and impossibly making it even better. Yelena and Valek's relationship, while always wonderful, has grown deeper and somehow more meaningful as each character grows and develops so natually, you almost don't notice. Why do I have to wait a year for the next one??!!



    • 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 straight in her head, let alone write it in a way that ma [...]


    • IM SO SAD THAT ITS OVER!!This review was originally posted at freadomlibrary.wordpress/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 danger and intrigue. The climax itself was kind of disappointin [...]


    • 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 and I thought everything wrapped up nicely.The Soul [...]


    • 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 samego 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 makes for the possibility that if there is another s [...]


    • 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 end with Fire Study, and I loved the new characters th [...]


    • even though I am still reading the first book in this series, I saw the fan edition of this book and had to snap it up. It's so beautiful to see the cover made up of thousands of book lover's faces, maybe my new favourite cover ever


    • 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 actually be that this has been - for better or worse - a [...]


    • Another series that we have been following for so long has ended, and i am sad. So pardon the nostalgic and gloomy air. this book was all we could have expected out of a Maria V Snyder book. Like the rest of her this book also is jam packed with out pouring action till the very end. by the time you have read read 20% it feels like you have been reading it forever and so much has happened and then all of a sudden you find out that 80% still remains to be read and that ladies and gentlemen is a fe [...]


    • Original Review @ Naomi’s Reading Palace4.5 Stars What a fantastic ending to the Soulfinders series! I have loved each journey that I have been on in this world, and Dawn Study was a well crafted and epic conclusion, to this particular series, that will stay with me for a while to come. I have fallen for each of the characters on this journey, and getting other perspectives enabled me to get to know them even more. Yelena had a lot to deal with, her lack of magic and the changes that she will [...]


    • 3.5 starsSatisfying conclusion to an excellent series, though a hard book to rate. While Snyder wrapped up various plotlines and personal journeys in a gratifying manner, I found myself frequently putting the book down and finding other things to do. Yelena and Varek were apart for most of the story, and the various conflicts at times had a hurry up and wait vibe. But over the course of the nine books I've become invested in the characters and story, so I persisted until the end.Was it a gloriou [...]
