My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Sooo, I'm gonna go ahead and say that most things in this book could be predicted before you even read it. Like, you know where it's going and you can predict most of the mayor plot points that's gonna happen, although you might not be able to figure out how. But, that's not entirely a bad thing: what if it hadn't ended happily? That would have been a shock, and a bad one.
But tbf, when shit hit the fan by the end of the book, the way it happened, had me looking like this:
I mean, I just did not see it coming the way it did. It's kinda ... yeah, idk, with her as the only confirmed kill until basically the last few pages it seemed a bit weird. Having America locked away for the ending, not even witnessing let alone handling the situaton, was not the smartest move. She is the center of the story and therefore we kinda want her at the center of the action, don't we? Oh well, I guess it made sense in the story for her to be there, but dramatically? Maybe not.
It kept up the good work of portraying relationships between girl characters, almost to the point where they can't not get along. But I really appreciated how it spoke about the fact that just because two girls are arguing or fighting, doesn't mean they won't support each other and be friends later on. None of that "oh girls are so bitchy they fight all the time and that means they hate it each other"-shit. Well done for sticking with it.
(Not so well done with literally just writing a female character out by the end of the book. She literally just disappears and no one knows what's happened to her? Couldn't it at least have been phrased like "her body hadn't been found" or something?)
A triogy that was easy to read and entertaining enough to stick with, despite it being pretty obvious from book one how it was going to turn out.
Also America rules Aspen drools.
