Also, I said in my review of the first book that I fell in love with Gabriel even though she was definitely not my type of person. That changed in the second book and I still didn’t like her much in this one. She’s just bad at the emotions thing. Either she turns them off completely or she’s just so full of rage and deadly power that it’s terrifying. I like people with a better balance. Like Brooklyn, who then has her own dark side which makes me dislike her too…Okay, yes, these people do good things sometimes, really good things, and that’s fine, everyone has a balance of good and bad inside them—though I don’t really believe in good or bad because of this—but I’d rather not deal with the whole mess. I just couldn’t like the people. They were too complicated for me to be able to focus on and enjoy the positives of their personalities. And honestly, I feel like so much of the dynamic was centered around those who were in relationships that those who weren’t seemed much more like secondary characters. Which kind of makes sense but also seems a bit unfair.
But this book really did make me feel. There was a lot less rage in this book than the last one; I think it had dulled by this point, or everything was too confusing for me to figure out who to be mad at (i.e. everyone but really no one). But there was a lot of sadness. And I changed my mind about people many times. Some people just had to die, but wait—no, they’re human enough to be changed—but they’re still too dangerous to let live. I was definitely just a spectator in this book; I could not find a way to pick sides at all. I was a spectator until the grief. I am never strong enough to resist the grief.
As for the actual plot, it went pretty much as expected, or at least as much as it could given that it turned on its head every ten pages. I mean we basically got there in the end, but almost everyone was up to something secret that turned the tides a bit. But nothing too surprising or out of left field. I said in my review of the last book that the characters drove the story but the plot made me want to continue. However in this book it was definitely less of the plot and more of the characters that was the draw. Everyone was just so gosh darn complicated. (:
So is it a good book? A fitting ending to the series? Yes it is. Is it one I’m going to read again? Probably not. The onslaught of emotional drama is not something to dive into lightly or frequently. You have to be ready to be changed, at least for a short time.
Note: I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
This story is complex with many layers! The characters in this story were children turned into weapons, genetically modified and designed for nothing but destruction. Omen Operatives and Legacies. Once on the same side, now they are split. Some feel that there needs to be a genocide that will wipe out a portion of humanity so that civilization can evolve to a higher level, a theoretical jumpstart to the evolution process. The other faction believes that the drug created by Kirin can be used to right the wrong that has been done to humanity without their knowledge or consent by the government and Pharmaceuticals Corporation.
There is so much expression of human emotion in this story. There is a saturation of struggle with right versus wrong. It colors everything because the struggle within these characters is real. Genocide or revolution, they war within themselves and each other over which path is the right choice. Betrayals are uncovered and sacrifices are made. Expect to be deeply affected by the choices this cast of characters encounter as well as the outcomes. This is a fast-paced science fiction thriller that will questioning your own morality as you struggle to decide what choices you would make if you were in their shoes!
This review is based on a complimentary book I received from Xpresso Book Tours. It is an honest and voluntary review. The complimentary receipt of it in no way affected my review or rating.
What an awesome ending to an incredible series! I'm not sure what I was expecting as an ending to this crazy adventure. All I know is what I got blew everything out of the water. I also loved the LGBT+ representation in this novel. It's not everyday that I pick up a book that represents and delves into that community.
I have mixed feelings towards Brooklyn because of what was revealed in the end. There was finally a reason for all her guilt, which makes the story that much more intricate. I don't think I would have welcomed her with open arms after all that though. What can I say? I'm petty. I'll admit to it.
I couldn't stand Julien this time around. Who in their right mind falls for a psychopath (which ended up being redeemed in a way)? I also don't believe that love can fix someone or make them more 'understanding'. Though the omens are all genetically altered and their brains work differently, I couldn't sympathize with the situation.
When everything clicked into place, it was like a light switch flipped and finally illuminated all the dark corners of what was actually going on. I wasn't expecting that to be the outcome. The epilogue took away from the story for me because it felt like everything was too perfect. For a group of genetically modified 'people' to get somewhat of a happy ending without something coming back to bite them in the ass is, to me, an impossibility.
