(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).
(This review may contain spoilers).
I have read the previous two books in this trilogy, so I was excited to have the opportunity to read the third book, even though I’d forgotten a lot of what had happened in the previous two books.
I was a bit disappointed to see the way characters like Jet referred to themselves as evil, since I always feel that the more interesting villains are those who think they have good reasons for what they do. Wolfe was an awful person and I had a strong dislike towards him, even before he threatened Will’s life.
It was nice to see Hunter and Will share some sweet moments together, but also to see that there were conflicts in their relationship. I also liked seeing Joshua and Jenny interacting together, especially since Joshua wasn’t a ‘true’ bad guy… and I did get the impression he cared about the kids.
I liked Zac’s character, but I really liked him interacting with Chantel as well. I thought they were sweet together. I did find it hard to differentiate between some of the younger characters, but I did like those who were expanded upon… and it was good to see that the danger they were in felt real and that there were sacrifices made. I especially hated what happened with Fearne and it was good to see that people didn’t just forget what happened with her and the others.
I did have a lot of sympathy for Jack, but at the same time, I could tell how difficult it was for Hunter to deal with trying to take on all of the responsibility. I did like Chevie and I could understand why he did what he did.
I also really liked Ryo’s character, although I would have liked to see more of her relationship with her brother. At the same time, it was good to see that there was so much she was able to do… and the fact that, despite the power’s strength, it did still have limitations.
I did feel that the ending was rushed a bit and I would have liked to see some of those scenes expanded upon. But I was drawn really easily into this book and I did enjoy reading it. It was a bit of a disappointment to see it end… but I did think the ending was quite a nice one.
