Cathy’s Ring by Stewart, Weismann, and Brigg is a book that I bought who-even-knows how long ago, and I’ve finally finished it! (no literally, I got this probably over a decade ago). This is the last book in the trilogy, if you want to see my thoughts on the first two books you can check out Cathy’s Book review and Cathy’s Key review.
This is a mixed media series that follows a young girl who is dating an immortal man, and the dangerous society that she gets caught up in to be with this guy. Cathy hates that her friends have been put in danger because of her, and so she tries to go her own way.
I didn’t want this story to be over by the end! I wanted more from this world and these characters. I would love to learn more about these immortals and I really enjoyed how the topic of immortality was covered. I especially liked how they discussed how the immortals loved and how people loved them.
As always, I adored the mixed media throughout this book, with the extra titbits added in and the doodles all over the page which are relevant to all the events. They really show the personality of Cathy, our artist and POV, as well as adding an extra dimension to the story.
On CAWPILE I rated this: Characters: 8, Atmosphere: 8, Writing: 7, Plot: 8, Intrigue: 8, Logic: 7, Enjoyment: 8, which gives an average of 7.71 and a 4* rating.
Highlight here for trigger warnings: violence, death, blood.
This is a really fun trilogy that I think has done a surprisingly good job at being readable and enjoyable today, in 2022, despite being written in the era of flip phones! I’m so so glad that I did finally read this, and that I still enjoyed it despite not being able to read it at 15 like I’d wanted!
