A Spectacular Ending to an Enjoyable Series!
Intriguing, Fun, and Satisfying.
I've enjoyed all the characters in this series - and it's hard to chose a favorite. But it would be crazy not to choose Cassie, since she's the star, so to speak, and since we mostly see the world through her perspective. I enjoy her dry wit and blunt honesty, although sometimes she makes me want to shake her and say, "Wake up, for goodness sake!" She's not as honest with herself as she is with others - so there's a bit of self-delusion and denial always going on in the background. Fortunately, this is all resolved in this last book of the series, with a very satisfying result. ;o)
I loved the scene where Cassie and Evan finally put aside their anger and talk to each other. The bedroom scene was very well done. And the part where Cassie refused the item Evan was offering her was sweet and heartwrenching. (I'm being purposefully obtuse because I don't want to spoil the story for others who might not have read it yet.)
Again, I can't say specifically which scene I mean, but it's where someone we all love and care about is reportedly killed. I was actually quite angry when I listened to this scene, and planned to have some words with the author! But she redeemed herself beautifully, with a solution to this problem which caught me totally unaware - and which melted my heart. Well done, Ms. Amsden!
I was very disappointed in what happened to Cassie's cousin, Jason - but I know why he made the choice he did. I just hope in the future (I know this is the last book in the series, but in case there is ever a sequel...) that Caitlin really doesn't go with him and let him turn her - for the sake of her baby! That would be horrible. ;o(
Thank you, Ms. Amsden and Ms. Reizian Frank, for a wonderful, entertaining production.
