This took me such a long time to read, but not because it was bad, because I had so much to do school wise. It was such a great book and even though this was supposed to be the last book in the series I'm really glad to hear that it's not the end of the story for Patch and Nora. I will admit that the beginning was a little irritating because Patch was not in it, and since the book came out almost a year after the last one I was a little lost because I read the second one immediately after it came out (duh) I seemed to have forgotten a few things over that time. Once things started up though I was highly pleased with where the story went and even happier to see that while the mood was still dark Becca retained Patch's sense of humor, and Vee was there the whole time as well. There were twists and turns I definitely didn't expect, but that made it all the better, and just as in the last two books it picks up and becomes much more urgent in the last third, which I had no problem with. Again Becca was able to leave me in awe of her talent and with a story line that left me with questions that will hopefully be answered in the last book, but didn't leave me screaming to the sky "WHY, I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!" like Crescendo and some other books I shall not name *cough*City of Fallen Angels*cough*. This time I decided to write down all the major events that happened so when the fourth book rolls around I won't be lost. I can't wait to see what happens next and I hope that the last book will wrap everything up with the answers I need and maybe just an air of mystery, because we all know Patch is not complete without some sort of mystery to make him who he is. Great third book in all, I was not disappointed with the book in the end.
