Great book to finish the series.Reviewed in Canada on 16 May 2021
As a big fan of the previous books, this was a great book to finish the series.
Did the authors reread the earlier books before writing this?Reviewed in the United States on 30 July 2021
This book drove me nuts. There was an interesting story here but the book was so disjointed and sloppy. I had just reread the first too books leading up to reading this and so it was jarring the shift. Making Cadzie the main character was great but major characters from the 2nd book were jarringly just gone with no mention. Justin the primary surviving narrator from the second book was never mentioned, Edgar and Ruth, critical secondary characters also gone with no mention but Ruth’s daughter with Aaron was all over the place. Even a couple of throw away lines that explain how they died would have been better. It felt like the authors hadn’t reread the first two books before writing this. Just going off of memory. “We had that one character in the first book tied to a table with a grendal on his lap, and then the waves of them” and in the second book there were bees and blue blankets and this orphan….yeah that’s enough, we don’t need to remind ourselves of most of these old characters! Let’s bring in some new ones but not really flesh them out with POVs so the readers can be “surprised” by their actions. And then let’s bring in someone import right at the end who we never set up in anyway oh and let’s shoehorn in some modern tech like 3D printers and pretend they’ve been in the books the whole time and are actually super important.” I really wanted to like this book but it just kept pulling me out of the story. One of the more frustrating books I’ve read in a very long time.
Okay, but doesn't live up to the 1st book.Reviewed in the United States on 14 May 2021
First book was a 5 star. The 2nd book was a 2 star. This 3rd book is a 3-4 star.
