Review: An Acceptable Time (Time Quintet #5) by Madeleine L’Engle

Acceptable TimeFor the final installment of my 2018 Resolution Project over at Speculative Chic, I reviewed An Acceptable Time by Madeleine L’Engle. Unfortunately, this series did not end with a bang for me. You can read the full review here, and check out an excerpt below:

This series, which gave us everything from aliens to angels to unicorns, fell flat with its final installment. The decline from high-concept physics and fascinating representations of mystical beings to overwrought Judeo-Christian concepts of sacrifice left me yearning for the previous generation of Wallace children – even Meg.

Rating: 2 (out of 5) stars. Cross-posted to Amazon and Goodreads.
