(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).
(This review may contain spoilers).
I find the concept of Foreverland quite an intriguing one. The previous two books I read were different to each other… and even though this one involved recognisable characters from the previous two books, I felt this was a different slant again.
The idea of living forever is one that a lot of people seem to find really appealing. But in this series, it’s a much more complicated process than that.
I did find myself somewhat confused about how everything was fitting together at first, I have to say. There were four separate storylines and each of them was really intriguing and drew me in quite easily… but I found I kept having to switch focus. It was much better when the storylines started converging and Cyn and Danny met up.
The situation with Barb was a particularly creepy one; more so because it was something that Cyn couldn’t explain because no one else would be able to understand it.
I found Alessandra a character I could easily empathise with. Although I kept seeing into the heads of other characters, I found it particularly interesting to see things from her perspective.
I was a bit confused about how everything worked with Coco being linked into a Foreverland. That part was an intriguing concept… but I wasn’t completely clear about how they knew Coco had formed a Foreverland.
I liked seeing both the cabin and the island and the effects that both had on Cyn and Danny. I wasn’t sure about the relationship between Cyn and Danny, though. I wasn’t sure what their exact connection was and I felt things moved quite quickly between them.
It was good to see that Cyn in particular still showed the effects of what had happened to her. I felt it made her more interesting to read about.
It was also good to see things from the perspectives of the villains, though I didn’t really hold much sympathy for them. Some parts of the ending did confuse me a little, though.
The ending piqued my interest a lot and it would be good to see what happens next in a future book. I do think you have to have read the previous two books to follow this one… but if you have, I definitely feel this is worth reading.
