The School for Good and Evil series continues to be in equal parts entertaining and ridiculous. The beginning of this book starts off with some problematic aspects, a lot of the same homophobic/transphobic things that appeared in the last book. Fortunately these things go away after the first couple chapters, but Tedros’s confused feelings about his attachment to Sophie-as-Phillip were not handled well. Nor were the sex change scenes… in general, Tedros’s homophobia and transphobia are extremely off-putting, particularly in a book intended for younger readers.

I want to say that up front, because while there are some great aspects to The Last Ever After and overall I enjoyed it as a book, it’s important to know from the beginning that there are problematic attitudes. Unlike the last book, these attitudes shade a very small percentage of the story – forgotten after the first 10%. But they are there.

That aside, The Last Ever After is a much better book than A World Without Princes. Sure, it’s got a lot of repetitive themes and the plot from all three books in this trilogy has been, well, essentially the same. Agatha and Sophie are placed on separate teams and the same stuff happens. If you’re read The School for Good and Evil and A World Without Princes, the story in The Last Ever After won’t be a particular surprise. For those who haven’t read the series and are interested, I won’t say anything more here. But the plot is repetitive as a whole and the ending is predictable from the first moments.

Unlike the other two books in the series, The Last Ever After brings something new to the table. This story is bigger than Agatha and Sophie. Chainani brings in the fairytale heroes we know from lore – Peter Pan, Cinderella, Red Riding Hood and more. This is a fun twist and it adds a level of depth to the storytelling. However, with that comes more fatphobia, another thing which has been a problem since book one. Dot has regained weight and Sophie in particular spends a lot of time looking disdainfully at the retired fairytale heroes. I found it less alarming here than in The School for Good and Evil, but it’s another thing that was unnecessary in this book.

What I didn’t find in this book and expected to was ageism. There are a couple moments of doubt about the heroes’s ability to assist, but a lot of that was due to their own uncertainty, and I feel like they all grew in the course of the story. It was interesting to see the meshing of the Old and the New within the story. It also helped with the repetitiveness of the plot.

There are… a lot of things that are wrong or don’t work in The Last Ever After – a theme in this series. There are a lot of missed opportunities and unfortunate twists. The character growth is fairly limited, especially in Sophie. It’s why Agatha is my favorite characters: she actually grows a little. And I do like Agatha. And the coven of witches. And I was totally rooting for Hort. Because despite all of its faults (and there are many faults), The Last Ever After managed to pull me in and keep me entertained for all twenty hours of its runtime.

As such, it makes it difficult to recommend The Last Ever After. It’s incredible entertaining, easy to read, and a light-hearted story with some fun characters and interesting relationships. But it’s riddled with concerning material and repetitive storylines. It’s something to keep in mind if you choose to pick up any books in this trilogy, but I do think The Last Ever After is the best of the three. ( )

This review was originally published at The Children's Book and Media Review

Once best friends, Sophie and Agatha are now bitter enemies. Both of them, however, are questioning their happy endings with the School Master and Tedros. Tedros and Agatha decide to return to the world of the school to save Sophie, but Sophie is not sure that she wants to be saved if it means that she doesn’t get a true love and a happy ending of her own. Because she was able to love the School Master when love was always on good’s side, evil villains from classic tales are coming to life for another chance at their happy endings. Sophie embraces her evil and Agatha embraces her good, leading to a dramatic war between the ones who believe in keeping the balance between good and evil and those who want nothing but evil.

The last book of the series makes up for the confusing messages of the second book. This book deals a lot with the issue of age while still tackling issues of gender and good and evil like in the first two books. Secondary characters like Hort and Dot were given a chance to shine and be more important that they seemed in the first two books. The main characters can still be frustrating with Sophie’s total selfishness and Agatha’s unwillingness to do what needs to be done to keep herself and the people around her safe. In spite of being in a fantasy world that seems to have no connection to the real world, the characters occasionally reference pop culture things that take the reader out of the book’s universe. The book is a few hundred pages more than the previous book and the plot lags at some points, but curiosity about how it ends will keep a lot of readers pushing towards the end of this new fairy tale.

My grade for this book is perhaps unfair, it did get better towards the end but oh man was it a slog to get there. The three book in this series all have the same character development arc. Like, the narrative starts with the main charcters taking 3 steps back, becoming worse versions of themselves than how they started out and working their way back to starus quo of being mildly terrible. The fairytale world makes less and less sense the further you get into the story. Just read Fables ([b:Fables, Vol. 1: Legends in Exile|21326|Fables, Vol. 1 Legends in Exile|Bill Willingham|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1375392441s/21326.jpg|1138855]) instead, the relationship between Rose and Snow is similar but more complex and ultimately more interesting.

This whole series was about finding your true love and friendship. The bonds that bind you together. It's also about knowing what you want and what you deserve. There is so much revealed in the ending of the story that I didn't expect. The journey to get there was really fun and memorable. I feel like I understand Sophie more than ever but she still did take advantage of her once in this story. Agatha and Tedros are together officially in this last book and it's not going very smoothly. Everything is real now and they both need to figure out what they want. I'm happy with everything although I still wish there was a little bit more or less easy ending. ( )

Adesso, nel loro amore, che era più forte, crescevano di pari passo i semi dell'odio, della paura e della confusione: perché l'amore può coesistere con l'odio, ciascuno alimentandosi dell'altro, ed è questo che gli dona la massima esaltazione. - T. H. White, "Re in eterno"
