Overall, book 2 didn't flow as well as book 1, & there still a lot of things left hanging (unanswered questions or situations that needed clarifying), that I wasn't sure if they will be answered at all by the time I got to the end of book 2. I hate when the heroine never asks any questions, cause I think a strong main character like Jessica would have kept asking questions, not just accept things or stay mute. A few things from book one have been answered but not enough to stop me questioning the story. Those unanswered questions or situations still pulled me out of the story. I did like the main characters' development, they are evolving/changing thru the story. I still feel Jessica seemed to be too talented in general (in book 1 it seemed in survivalist living), almost like she can do anything in the world. I tend to not like people like that in real life. I wasn't as excited over the other chosen either, they came off a bit step-ford like. The editing was not great, I'm surprised a published book would have so many mistakes, like wrong words, too many words, words in the wrong order, etc. That definitely interrupts the flow of reading, having to backtrack to clarify what I was reading versus what should have been there.
Book 3 didn't flow as well as book 1, but better than book 2 & even at the end of book 3, there still a lot of things left hanging (unanswered questions or situations etc) that I've given up on being answered. Those unanswered questions or situations still pulled me out of the story too. I did like the ending for Jessica & Jace, it felt like a HEA for them. I still feel Jessica seemed to be too talented in general, like she can do no wrong, made her not as realistic. The editing was not great, I'm surprised a published book would have so many mistakes, like wrong words, too many words, words in the wrong order, etc. That definitely interrupts the flow of reading, having to backtrack to clarify what I was reading versus what should have been there.
I did enjoy book 1 (free purchase on Amazon) enough to buy the box set of 1-3, for Jessica & Jace's story just to find out how it ends for them without having buyers remorse or feel I wasted time when I finished. I would consider reading on in the series to see what happens with Julia or a few of the other characters, or if there might be a few scenes of Jessica & Jace thrown into the other stories.
I would recommend anyone interested in reading this series to get these books in the set. The only real complaint that I had with the first two books is that they ended in cliffhangers. It makes sense to look at the three books as three parts of one larger book.
Although these books wrap up the story of Jessica & Jace, there are still enough questions or items of curiosity to make me want to read the rest of the series and see what happens in this new world with Djinn and humans living side by side. This is was an original and interesting start to the series and I’m looking forward to reading the rest.
My only real quibble is the same as it is in all the Apocalypse books - the protagonist was basically brought up to survive (gun skills, cooking skills, first aid, butchery, butter making, etc) and I feel like that's harder to swallow than supernatural happenings or enemies.
Still, I liked the first one I found in the anthology enough to purchase the next two in the story arc. I would recommend reading Pope's series (at least this series - I haven't read any of her other series).
