Not as good as the other two books that made up this series. As some have mentioned in their own reviews, the ghosts and the metaphysical aspect of book 3 versus books 1 and 2, really made it seem like the writer was using a crutch to answer certain things and to make this work out and it really took away from the story as a whole. I could understand it being used maybe once, twice would be a stretch, but just off of the top of my head there were at least 7 times that it was used and in some cases it made no sense.

Not a spoiler, but do we really need to have a ghostly visit from someone to let someone else know they have cancer and are going to die?

Calhoun was solid, I think the writer could have used him in a much more effective manner than she did, and could have used him in a lot of places that would have nullified the need of "ghostly" visitors. Was it a fun book? Yes. Was it the best of the trilogy? No. Will I ever reread this book again. No.

Decent trilogy, but really took a turn downward. Reminds me of the original Star Wars, first two were really good, third one had too many damn Ewoks and took away from the main story.
