Review: Necessity (Thessaly Book 3 of 3)

Necessity: A Novel (Thessaly) - Jo Walton

This is the third and apparently final book in the Thessaly series by Jo Walton.  I enjoyed the entire series, although I did think this book was a little weaker than the previous two. 

 

When the book first began, I had the impression that the story would focus on something that seemed very interesting to me.  Instead, that “something” made up only a small portion of the story because the main characters were caught up in other things that were going on.  The actual story was interesting, and there were some great moments, but I was more interested in the story that wasn’t told.

 

Aside from that, I really don’t have much to say about this book that I haven’t already said about the previous two.  This series told a story that was different from anything I’d ever read before, and I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it.  I’ll have to try more of the author’s other books someday.
