Top critical review
Not quite as good as one and two
on May 30, 2014
This story is hard to finish. About half way through this I had to stop and go "What just happened?", and multiple times I wondered if there was a better way to solve it than killing A or B character, or the "pause for lengthy dialogue". The action was choppy and all over the place and the solutions and escalating violence makes this less friendly than the other two books. Also note to parents there is a whole lot of snuggling in beds together, and the romance can come off as forced or even just plain weird. However, it is still exciting, and Michael Vey is still a character you root for. In fact, he is one of the only characters you can get behind in this book which is different from the others in the series. So I am giving it three stars because of the middle of the book, (you will know it when you get there) but it does further the series and fans will want to keep reading.
