I think this book had the least errors of all three books, all of which I read in the Kindle version. The Kindle editions leave off quotation marks so you need to guess where they would be (only one is present so you need to figure our where the start or end quote would be), pairs of words are sometimes flipped, someone messed up in the editing and forgot to delete a word when they added a new one, and things get misspelled. Some of the misspellings are major. For example, did the author mean to say that "It took six months to..." or "I took six months to..." Big difference.
I gave this book 4 stars to round out the trilogy, but that doesn't mean that there weren't flaws in it. The biggest is Milo. Such a waste of a life and I'm not sure what purpose he served other than to... fulfill a prophecy? That one of the Destroyer's own would betray her? I think if that was the purpose, then it could have been done better. Much of the book is trite in the sense that it tries so hard to make something seem important. And it's almost like watching a musical where everything is exaggerated versus reading a book or watching a movie where there is more subtley. Even from Book 2, we can hints of Milo's dark side, but it suddenly just rears its head completely in Book 3. And it happens right away from the beginning and despite the hints, it's still a pretty big jump that it just feels awkward and weird. How did Milo go from being a quiet and sensitive guy to this obsessive psycho? Wasn't Milo supposed to be pretty smart in Book 1? Where did all that go? Did it suddenly disappear in his quest for revenge? I wouldn't think so because villains that rise to power do so because they are also pretty smart. So where did Milo's smarts go? Because it's clear that he suddenly loses his ability to think and rationalize things out. So the sudden change in Milo's character was something that I think was not done well.
The age difference between Braden and Libby is still disturbing and I'm glad to see that others points it out. Obviously, it's only pointed out so that the author can try to justify it, which never really happens. I'll admit that Braden doesn't come across as some perv as he's the one to enforce and insist on the physical boundaries of their relationship. But, nevertheless, it's still a little disturbing that a 23-year-old would even put that kind of emotional burden on a 17-year-old.
The ending is a bit rushed with no real clear explanation on how the cipher zombies were destroyed. It's not so much that I wanted a really long explanation, but so much of the book was spent on Libby and her team trying to discover this that it wasn't really explained to my satisfaction.
All that being said... I really enjoyed this book, hence the 4 stars. I enjoyed it so much that I will go back and read the sweet parts of it. Although the age difference between Braden and Libby is weird (because she's so young), it's still a very sweet relationship. Braden is great and the author did a good job of keeping the relationship safe. Perhaps I'm secretly in love with Braden myself. More importantly, once Libby chooses Braden, that's it. No more back-and-forth between Braden or Milo and I appreciated her maturity in doing this and the author's choice to let that part of the story go. Also, for me, a hallmark of a good story is that it makes me go back and read it. Why? Because I'm not ready to let the characters rest yet. I want more of their happily ever after, even knowing that there can't be another book because there wouldn't be anything to write about. And this book fits that bill for me. I go back because I'm not ready to let Braden and Libby go. OK, more Braden then Libby, but still, I want to spend more time with them and wish I could.
Nevertheless, still a trilogy that I would recommend to others.
