Holy crap.. The beginning and the end are intense. Middle is a little less exciting, but it sets up the story nicely because you know Michelle is going to pull something out of her bag of magic tricks and twist everything around. Can I say how more violent and gruesome this one is? shudders There’s a particular scene with an eyeball and I just couldn’t fathom what happened. There wasn’t even any details of that scene, just that the character lost the eye. I don’t even want to know how.
The chapters flip back and forth from the present to the past, and you’ll be happy to know that we get to read from the point of view of someone special. A mini treat I think. There were many references to The Hunger Games, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and Buffy the Vampire Slayer and I couldn’t help but squeal when I knew exactly what was being said. A book mentioning other books in it is always so fun to read and quote from. Do we get the same sort of mystery? The same sort of blindness we get from the previous books? Yes and yes..and then some.
I can’t believe it’s over. It’s done. I don’t know what to do with myself. rocks back and forth Questions were answered. Tears were wept. Heart was broken and pieced back together. Now that was an ending. It was one crazy roller coaster.. So sinister and complex, I was gasping at the violence in some parts. So good. Michelle Hodkin, thank you for your wonderful talent at weaving a story.
