Ok...I want to say that I think this author has magic, scorcery, mind controlling powers. Every damn book in this series gets me so entranced with the storyline, a bomb could go off next to me and I wouldnt flinch. I literally get in a zone and block life around me out...Hence why when I started this 3rd book, I was smart enough to set up snacks and drinks on my kitchen counter for my 6 year old and said...you should be good for a while and then when and settled in. Whew....what a ride, I was sweating at times reading this latest book.
Nikki, Nikki, Nikki....how in gods green earth does she get herself in things like this??? The Bridge? OMG...pure evilness...evilness that I kinda love. The twists and things that come out of left field left me speechless...and if you know me at all...that is feat by itself!
Nikki has found herself in some hairy situations but this...it literally takes the cake. The Bridge feels that since going to Mars, the team needs to know what life will be like on the planet....sooooooo...they are sent to a few places for training....extreme training. And boy oh boy are there some shocking faces that return to train alonside the team. Faces that are forced to work together to survive. The description of some of these places and the extreme surroundings (especially the cold places) actually had me freezing and reaching for a blanket and a hot cup of coffee...thats how descriptive it was. There are some rather emotional moments that had me tearing up..some down right rotten times that had me screaming at my kindle for vengence and some angsty moments that had me twirling my hair until it literally came out of my head.
I want to know how this author thinks of the things that happen in this book..some are so complex and make some characters downright heinous, its purely brilliant. It answers questions you have been asking but fills your plate full with a whole brand new set. And Nikki...she is my freaking hero. Total bad ass chick.
Again...this book leaves off with you salivating for more and in a book coma....I swear it makes all books you read for awhile pale in comparison. Yet again....Im on my knees praying to the literary gods to have the next installment soon!!!! One of my top 10 all time favorite series.
Man, I'm angry with myself because I feel like I should have anticipated the ending to this book, but I didn't, so cheers to Mr. Chaucer on that one.
I love the character transformations in this one. I was questionable at the end of the second book because I didn't like where Nikki's character was going. She seemed a little selfish, hopeless, and stupid, but in this last book, her character really takes a turn for the better. She decides to do something about her predicament and be smart about it.
THIS PARAGRAH CONTAINS SPOILERS: Thomas also had great character development in this one shown especially when he decides to tell Nikki what the bridge plans to do to her. I wanted it to be Adam the entire time (from literally book one), but when Thomas gave Nikki the note and said something about wanting to give her a baby the right way, I was sold. Thomas, buddy, you deserve it (with Nikki's consent of course).
For a while I was confused with The Bridge because why the heck would they put so much time and money into these individuals who are giving them a hard time, but then I finally came to the conclusion that The Bridge is literally an organizational embodiment of a politician. Getting the name out there? Check. Doing something crazy to raise their status? Attempted. Using money and force if necessary to bend people to their will? Necessary in any politician's campaign.
I mentioned in my review of the second book that I didn't see how the books tied together other than with the characters and that I didn't think that was necessarily a strong enough connection for the books to make sense in a series together. I think this last book might have changed my mind on that (although I still wish there was another dream premonition) because Nikki's connection to Thomas was the driving force of The Bridge in this last book. They were so power hungry they had to prove they could make a relationship as negative as Thomas and Nikki's turn around completely.
A negative I had with the first book was an overwhelming amount of description. Throughout the first book along, there was a growth in the writing style where the amount of description decreased. Thought the series, an even more dramatic transformation. Nikki White has a great amount of description in my opinion - just enough to lay the scene, but little enough that the pacing isn't slowed.
I don't give out five stars hardly ever, except to books that I'll keep coming back to five or ten years from now. I likely won't keep coming back to this series, so I can't give it five stars, but a different me in a different universe might slap a five on this book with no hesitation.
How long can you blame someone for their past mistakes? Does giving someone a second chance make you a fool? Forgiveness and the ability to move on is key to Nikki White. Jack Chaucer writes Thomas in such a way that the dislike I felt for that character began to crumble away. Everything isn't always what it seems to be and many times you got to dig deeper to get at the truth.
A huge thanks to NetGalley for allowing me to read and review this.
Nikki frustrated me at times but mostly made me proud of how sassy and smart she is. She sticks up for herself and when she gets knocked down she dusts herself off.
There are some serious twists and turns in this book that I really did not expect. The Bridge is not what you expect at all times either so don't count your eggs on this one guys.
Another great read by Jack and look forward to read where this journey goes!!
