b. Plot Summary:


After acquired star of fire, they transported themselves to Ireland. Home for Doyle and Bran. Together, they learn about their past. It is (not) surprised that their life is connected to each other, that their ancestors could be the goddess of stars, Celene, Luna, and Arianrhod.

Because this is the final story, it tells about the relationship development of Doyle and Riley. Also, their search about star of ice.

c. Strength

  • I guarantee you, it is happy ending. no doubt. They (absolutely should) made their mission! cheers!
  • If you keep reading from the first book, and you are fans of Doyle or Riley or both, yes, this is their turn to be exposed. Be cheerful to their extraordinary love. Not too sweet like Sawyer & Annika or too magical like Bran & Sasha

d. Weakness

  • You can guess the ending. Yep you can
  • The enemies are defeated. Sure, that is the ingredients how to make happy ending. But, it is just “yay we defeated it!” not with sweaty bloody tears and something challenging.

e. Favourite Sceneย *contain spoilers*

  • Whenย they find their ancestors are related. So they are clan. (or, that is how they decide it).
  • Whenย Aegle, the Queen, give the guardians their heart desire. At last, I am happy that Annika & Sawyer does not need to be separated between land and sea.

F. Most Favourite Character

I still like R-I-L-E-Y. This last novel is dedicated to Riley & Doyle. I am happy to read more about their character and how they could blend. Riley is very smart, and she is wolf! She is true warrior and she is not weak. Her love life is like mine, HAHA. Hopelessly romantic but at the end, she get what best for her.

G. Most Hate Character


Plain. No most hate character.

H. Rating

Only 3 stars. Sorry, only 3. yeah.ย Because the ending is predictable and there is no something surprise or challenging from this novel. I think for fantasy-adventure novel, there could be more surprises.

Sleep in Outer Spaceย 

Hi everyone! 

Are you fan of Star Wars?

*picture taken from pinterest* 

or Star Trek? 

*picture taken from pinterest*

or both? 
Have you ever dreamed to become an astronaute when you were child? 

*picture taken from pinterest*

Now with a little of magic, you can have astronaute and outer space experience when you are traveling! True! Because in this post I will tell you about Met a Space Pod Hotel in Little India, Singapore! *yayness* 
Met a Space is a capsule hotel. It’s a hotel that have one common room with dorm bed, and usually a share bathroom. Since my travel to Japan, I want to try capsule hotel when traveling. Because if you lucky enough, capsule hotel is really nice place to stay with cheap price. 

I have known this met a space from a year ago when I traveled to Singapore with my sisters. One of them told me about it. I was so interested with it, but, at that time it’s location is in Clarke Quay and above bar place. I thought, it would make my sisters and I hard to take a rest after long journey. So, we discard that option. *saaaddd* 

But hey, in this 2017, I am planning to go to Singapore again to watch Coldplay concert. Just when I begin to stumble a capsule, then there is an advertising about Met a Space Pod located in Little India! So yaaaaaaaayyyyyyy!!! And it is close enough to Fahrer Park MRT station. Then it is double yeaaaaaaayyy! Without any hesitation, I booked the hostel. Yes sir, I am ready to have space experience! 

I arrived in Singapore about 6PM. I took MRT from Harbour Front to Fahrer Park. Then…….okay, they have A-H exit door and I am confused which one will I take. I texted the hotel, and the answer is..

*space cadet????? previously I asked with Sir/Madam ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚*

Okay… got it. However I still dumb, so I take different exit. ( I take exit H if I was not mistaken) and it’s kinda round and round. So……takes 15 minutes to figure it out and reach the space ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Here it goes when I am ready to space it up! 

* I took photos the day after in order to have clearer look* 

Met a space is surrounded with apartment area. No noisy. If you come home late, let’s say 11 PM, it’s a bit dark and silent.

Enough for environment, let’s talk about the stay experience. First o first: The bed bed bed bed! 

This is the alley between capsules and toilet. At the end of it, turn left and you will see toilet and bathroom.

This is the pod with side slide door. I got capsule with front slide door. Upstairs. Ohh and you also get locker for all your belonging. The big locker located down under the pod, while the safe deposit (yes you got it too), located inside the pod.

and this is the bed!!! you also get two towels for you. 

This is the charging station. If you look closely, you can see that you can change the lamp color. It could be reading mode, sleepy mode, or space mode. ๐Ÿ˜ Also there is a mirror above charging station. 

Yeah you got TV too. And yes, that’s the curtain. Nope. Not door. I think for front door, it is actually front curtain. 

After seeing the pod, let’s take a look at bathroom, shall we?

The lavatory separated from bathroom. 

Bathroom area

There is alao a mirror and cloth hanging after bathroom. It consist two washtaffels with spacious enough area. Also, sunray can past through the window and you can see artificial garden above you. Nice place to stay, is it?

After all, I am very glad to have experience in here. The place is very  very nice. Staffs also friendly to us and gladly to help. With price about 350.000 rupiah per night, this place is recommended to travelers who wants to enjoy not ordinary staying in their wanderer time. 

Other facilities include wifi, and breakfast. (Depend on your booking. My booking does not included it. Beside I am looking for my own breakfast taste, I am booked in promo price ๐Ÿ˜). Met a space pod little india located near Serangoon Plaza, Farer Park Hospital, and City Square Mall. 

Rating: ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ until above the skies! 

May the force be with you travelers!
