The broken doors are closing. Can Sal make it home?

Avoid- the third book really didn't get better...
Parasite was intriguing, a little slow. Symbiont was just filler but a reviewer said "well, it was supposed to be 2 books but apparently the publishers wanted to stretch it to 3 books" and I certainly could believe that. I wanted to finish the series and get answers to the questions like "Why do the sleepwalkers know her name?"
Instead I got more filler, more contrived scenes, no answers, more confusion over what the heck Sal's dad knew or did, and more annoyance with Sal.
Very disappointing as there were interesting ideas laid out in the first novel.

Many unanswered questions
While the premise of this series is an excellent one for exploring themes of identity (If a tapeworm takes over your brain, are you still you? Who do you want to be?), the execution of it falls a little flat in this third installment. Some questions have have lingered from the first book go unanswered, while others are tied up in too neat of a bow. I'm left thinking that the story could have been told in one or two books instead of three. Or maybe it should be four or five. (See what I mean? Hard to tell.) I don't want to give the impression that the book is poorly written, because it's really quite well written—just not structured properly, perhaps. The narrator struggles with one character's British accent, and that was quite distracting. Still, I'm optimistic enough to read the author's future works, and see where she goes from here.
