Charlie West woke up one morning to find himself being tortured by terrorists with absolutely no memory of what happened during the last year of his life. And, to make it worse, he's wanted by the police for the murder of his best friend. Over the next couple of months, Charlie is faced with a ridiculous amount of misfortune on his quest to clear his name and expose his would-be murderers.

I'm actually starting to think Andrew Klavan is incapable of writing a boring scene. Practically every sentence is packed to bursting with suspense. From a dogfight through the streets of New York to dodging subway trains in a shootout with the Homelanders, Klavan never lets up on the thrills.

And now, it's finally over. The final hour has come and gone, answering every question; revealing every mystery. Every fan of the previous books will need to get their hands on this truly satisfying conclusion to the insanely epic series.

I've really enjoyed Klavan's Homelanders Series and this final book is an excellent end to a suspenseful and action-packed story. Teen super-hero Charlie West is in one of the most dangerous prisons in the country for a crime he didn't commit. And amidst his struggle to stay alive in prison, he is also one of the only people left with knowledge of an upcoming terrorist attack on America. He struggles through his fear and circumstances in order to save the people in this creative and fantastic adventure.

Each book in this series brings a piece of the mystery and character of Charlie West. It's not a "deep" story so much as it is action-packed, but many important issues are brought up in the realms of faith, politics, violence, war and terrorism, patriotism, good versus evil, and even identity. As a mother, this is the kind of story I'd want to discuss with my teenagers after each book, and I am pleased that The Final Hour does have a Reading Group Guide for further reflection.

The Final Hour by Andrew Klavan was a novel filled with action packed adventure and deep despair. The Final Hour is the fourth and final book in the Homelander Series. As the novel unfolds, Charlie West finds himself locked away in the worst prison in the United States for a crime he did not commit. He feels abandoned by the only agent left who knows the truth, and he is barely able to fend for himself against the Islamist prisoners, the White Supremist criminals, and the corrupt, bloodthirsty guards. He suddenly finds himself in the midst of a frightening situation: the Homelander group has planned one final strike, and Charlie is the only one who knows where, how, and when. Can he reach his friends in time and save America?

The Final Hour is loaded with action and suspense. It is a quick and exciting read. The first part of the book deals with Charlie's despair and loneliness in jail and his struggles with his faith. I liked that the author mentioned Charlie's belief and faith even during his hardships, but I wished he had mentioned Jesus and God more. God was only brought up a couple times, and Christ and His work on the cross were never talked about. The book was a satisfying ending to the Homelander series, and I really enjoyed the entire series. I cannot wait to read the next book by Andrew Klavan; I just hope he talks more about Jesus.

The Final Hour is book 4 of this series. The series comes to a close with an exciting conclusion after the journey that Charlie West has endured. A year of his life had been erased from his memory, as it slowly returns to him he remembers details to a terrorist plot that he must stop. A fugitive from the law he escapes from prison and tries to stop the attack before it is too late. Charlie has to evade the police and FBI as he tries to stop the Homelanders terrorist attack. As his memories returned piece by piece, Charlie learns what he must do.

This is a great series that I can't recommend enough. Klavan writes the characters so that you feel that you know them and are on the journey with them. Excellent conclusion to an amazing series!

The Final Hour was a deviation for me. I do like suspense books, like Dee Henderson, but I usually stray towards the solid stories with romance, but I ignored the fact that I don't usually read action-thriller books and jumped right in to review it.

I did discover one problem. This was the fourth and final book in the Homelander Series. Whoops! That didn't stop me, though, and I actually found, with all the remembering that was done in the book, it filled in the gaps for me and made me want to go back and read the first three books. In fact, I recently purchased them, and they are in my TBR (To Be Read) pile.

I will admit, I read this book a little like I watch 24 (which I am currently in the process of watching because I've only seen the last 2 seasons), through my fingers at some of the gruesome parts. There are also some parts, much like 24, that seemed a little far-fetched, but in some ways that just adds to the story. It is fiction after all.

All-in-all, I thought it was well-written, and have actually recommended this series to my 15-year-old, who loves this sort of thing. The fact that the main character is relatively young, I thought would be a plus for her.
I think the moral of this review would be to jump outside your comfort zone and take chance. It's like the commercial said, "Try it. You'll like it." :-)
