I loved this book as you can see! Continuing the plot beautifully from the previous three books, we see all our beloved characters again. It is easy to connect to these characters considering they are about the intended audience’s age. You can sense the frustration of the characters as they are never a step ahead of their enemy. Realizing that everything they are doing is a distraction ignites their passion and anger to finish this once and for all. All the characters are brave and kind, risking their lives just to save strangers. They embrace responsibility and realize that their power can be used for good. This is inspiring as well as interesting to read.
The book itself is very well written. It is almost as if you are living inside the book. The author uses amazing plot twists, a variety of vocabulary, and constant descriptive language. It is very suspenseful and hard to put down. It has just the right amount of drama, mystery, adventure and thrills, all mixed together to make an amazing product. I know that I absolutely loved this book!
