Of Enemies and Endings

Of Enemies and Endings by Shelby Bach

The conclusion of the Ever After series.

Rory is arguing with her mother, who did not move to EAS, when witches attack them.  After a frantic fight, other EASers show up -- they were alerted by their inability to reach her -- and turn the tide.

Chase is not one of them.  Has been a problem for some time.[Spoiler (click to open)]A trope which annoyed me not because it's not a fairy tale classic -- it is -- but because none of other characters have hit the books, and none of them recognized it. sigh. A problem stemming from knowing more than the Pop Charts Top 20.

Meanwhile, Solange is picking up allies. Rory is packed off to teach her classes in swordplay -- she's been Hansel's assistant -- and Rapunzel's foreseeing is breaking down because there are so many missions.

It involves tales, heroic sacrifices leading to to death, a heavily interrupted birthday, letters, Rory babysitting her little sister, Chase's big secret coming out, Rapunzel being impentrable because she says exactly what is true, a melting ice castle, and much more.
