The Savage Dawn by Melissa Grey.

The Savage Dawn – Delacorte Press

But the words engraved in the marble columns betrayed the lie. Language knew. Language remembered.
— Chapter 14

Hate is a choice. And it’s not one I’m interested in making.
— Chapter 39

This is the final book in the Girl at Midnight trilogy – and I don’t want it to be over. Yes, it is totally in accordance with the previous books and I understand why it has to be this way, but that doesn’t mean that in my heart of hearts I wasn’t hoping for something else. Everyone always says that they appreciate a bitter sweet ending, myself included, yet if I’m completely honest I mostly like my chocolate to be that way and hope for my books for a sweeter solution. There is room for interpretation and maybe I’m just a little raw at the moment. Which actually says a lot about how much this series and its characters have come to mean to me. They sort of snuck up on me and now I’m sad to let them go when I was so unprepared for this amount of parting pain.
There were way too many quotes to choose from, which was also true for the previous books. Echo is the sort of main character that especially speaks to me with her love for language and literature, which is reflected in the wonderful writing. And then there are the twists and high stakes that will suck you right in and will make you want to hold on for dear life.
If Urban Fantasy is your thing and you haven’t read this series maybe now that it is complete give it a chance. I know that I will have to come back for a re-read in the not too distant future. And maybe, just maybe there is a chance that it isn’t completely over? I mean there are so many possibilities of stories yet to tell. One can hope, right?

Which bitter sweet ending has last left you satisfied and yet laid waste to you? Share them along with your teasers in the comments!

I know that feeling of having to let go of a series you've really enjoyed.

The teasers are pretty philosophical.
