I've come to learn there is no escaping your past.
It doesn't matter what you do, it will follow like a phantom--haunting you--reminding you.
So I have been reading this series since the very beginning. And truthfully, I was never really sure what to make of the series overall, I mean it is some serious intense stuff, you almost never know what is going to happen next. I remember after the first book wondering how in the heck this series was going to keep going if everyone kept dying. So here we are at the end of the series, the final book, and I honestly just couldn’t see how this was going to be a happy ending, and honestly I don’t think a happy ending would ever fit in Elizabeth’s world.
So this is one of those books where I don’t feel like I can say a whole heck of a lot about the book without ruining everything for you, so I am going to stick with only talking about the stuff that you would have known from book two. So Elizabeth and Declan are basically trying to figure out where to go from here, and there is the matter of the person who got off the plane at the end of book two, so there is a lot of time spent dealing with finding that person and then dealing with it all. And of course because this is Elizabeth and Declan they have a lot of other little smaller things going on that are super dramatic and suspenseful.
So here is the reason why I couldn’t really give this book a good rating, it did not feel at all like the other books. The reason why the other books worked was because they all had like one big strong complex plot point that the whole book revolved around, it was always a super twisted plot and you never knew what was going to come next. In this book there was like a million tiny plot points that needed to be started and wrapped up, some only lasted a few chapters and started randomly throughout the book. Where was the big mystery? Where was the complex points I loved about the first two? They just weren’t there. It was as interesting, it felt like nothing happened while I was reading because so much small stuff happened and that was it.
Now I know a lot of people had big problems with the ending. I get it. I understood the ending, and honestly I kind of almost think its the only way things could have really ended in the series, but the epilogue… oh the epilogue. I wish I had stopped reading the book and not read the epilogue at all. It honestly ruined it for me. It made me look at the book and think why did I waste my time on this, and I hate that I am saying that, because the first two were so interesting and unique. I like E.K. as an author, and for that reason alone I wanted to give this book a good rating, but I honestly can’t. I didn’t like it. The end. If you have read the first two books, I think you should probably read this one just for closure purposes, but honestly, be prepared there is a good chance you aren’t going to love it like the first two.
