Despite being the sixth book of seven, The Lily and The Lion is the true conclusion to the series. The ending was perfect- perfect for the series and perfect for the character who dies in it's last moments. It even has an epilogue. Everything is tied up so well here that book seven, written twenty years later in a different style and not near as good, is almost not canon for me.
There were as many if not more good moments here as in the prior books. The best scenes in this series are usually the ones where people treat each other horribly. However, while there is indeed much misery here, I think two of the best passages in the book were the friendship moments involving Robert of Artois. Besides the ever-interesting death scenes, there is an interesting portrayal of medieval document forgery, as well as the scene where Beatrice explains her odd life philosophy.
