Once I started this book I could not put it down, reading most of it in a day. There's just something about Fallon's writing that captures my attention and refuses to let go until the last word. Not to mention that there was never a dull moment in this book with secrets, lies and plot twists around every corner. I wish I could go into more detail but anything I would say would give too much away. -- The West Australian
One of the things I've always thought Fallon did quite well is write complexly motivated characters. Not only that, but the way she weaves their story lines together to form an intricate web is masterful. At every turn each character does the thing that absolutely seems most right to them in the situation but that has ramifications they could not have predicted. -- Australian Women Writers

One of the features of JF's writing that I like is the occasional subtle hint of her likes and dislikes, such as fraudulent psychiatrists that fabricate trash to justify their own existence. She manages to do it with style without shoving her views down the reader's throat.
I found this third book of a ? Book series enjoyable...
Just a quick note, a little more proof reading as there were a few spelling/grammatical errors throughout the book (5-6) but at no stage did these detract from the storyline...
Question now is... Will there be a book four???
The biggest problem was the skip in time. Not only did it not feel organic, it skips over a huge event that is never than fully explained. Though I had recently reread the first two books in the trilogy to prepare, I was so confused I had to put down Reunion and go reread the last 100 pages of The Dark Divide. Doing so didn't help at all. Eventually you're able to piece the events together but it left me with a bad taste in my mouth.
What saves this novel for a die hard Fallon fan, or someone who has read the first two, is the plotting in the middle of the book. It is tight, fast paced and kept me reading. It felt like a Jennifer Fallon novel in that it sucks you in with the brilliant world building and the dynamic characters. The crazy turns and twists the plot takes feel believable and keep you guessing.
I can't go into more details without giving away spoilers but the ending was a complete disappointment. Since this is a Fallon novel, I'm prepared for things to not wrap up nice and tidy as it's a trait of hers to always leave you wanting more. I have never felt, however, that any of her trilogies (or her single quartet) was unfinished but that's the best I can say for Reunion. What happens to Ren and Darragh comes out of left field, does not further the plot and does not even make an iota of sense. There are characters and plot points that don't get even a hint of resolution which makes you wonder why we diverted the time to read about them anyway. While I had been prepared to forgive the earlier sin of skipping three years (and then seven...), combined with this was more than I could bear.
To be honest, it doesn't feel like Reunion was what Fallon originally planned for the end of the Rift Runner trilogy as so much was changed from the 2nd to the 3rd. Fallon's a better writer than this and I expect her next to be her normal brilliance. Until then, go read the The Lion of Senet (The Second Sons Trilogy, Book 1) or Wolfblade (The Hythrun Chronicles: Wolfblade Trilogy, Book 1).
