This is going to be a very hard review. On one hand, the book in general fell somewhere between The Final Warning and Angel. On the other hand, I can't really bring myself to give it a bad review.

Ok. So first of all, it wasn't that bad if you set goals. Mine were (view spoiler) Unfortunately, just because those two expectations were met doesn't mean the book actually made complete sense. It was a bit like that whole the-last-months-were-a-dream-wait-no-they-weren't-yes-they-were-never-mind-oh-and-by-the-way-max's-arm-works-again thing in the second or third book. If you don't look too closely, you can skim right over it and move on. As soon as you try to understand it, you're just like, "...What?" Which is sad, because it was the end. There will be no clarification. That was IT. (view spoiler)(view spoiler)

Basically, it's good on a superficial level. As soon as you look too closely (or really try to understand anything at all), it's really disappointing. *sob* This book unfortunately did not deserve my fangirling (or begging my parents to take me to Target 15 minutes before it closed to get it).

Would I recommend it? If you really like the characters, it at least ties up a few loose ends with them, but it also leaves a few questions. If you're looking for a super-amazing plot, than don't even THINK about reading it. I guess I would only recommend it if you need a sense of closure (series-wise, not necessarily character-wise).

And, I nearly forgot. What was that garbage at the end with the "One girl's story ends, another is just beginning" thing? I was like, "I just finished a series that I've been waiting to finish since March... and YOU'RE ALREADY TRYING TO SELL ME ANOTHER BOOK?????" That was low. Really, that was pathetic. Absolutely terrible.
