After Reading:
I must say, this is probably my least favorite out of the three books.
It's not horrible (Obviously, since I gave it five stars) but it took forever for the pace to pick up, for it to get interesting.

This book is mostly about the Resistance fighting back (HOORAH!!) but they can't just barge in and fight! They must plan first! Making most of the novel planing, not fighting.
And we all now that planing is that as fun as fighting...

Of course it's not all planning!
Since, very much like the last book, this book has alternating chapters.
Except this time it's alternating between Lena and Hana.
While I liked hearing about what's going on in Hana's life, it made the pace of the book slower. Not much is going on in Hana's life (actually, a lot is happening but nothing that seems to entertain me...)

Now that I got all of that out of the way, let me talk about what is of most importance...
THE ENDING
We are all aware that this is the last book.
And being the last book, it needs to have a good ending.
While the ending did leave a few questions unanswered (view spoiler)
But I did like how it ended.
It brought a sense that things are going to get better.
(forgive me for being cliche but...)To me this is the best kind of ending.

And while I am sad to see this series go...
I will be very unhappy if this series continues, since I know when a book series needs to end (Cassandra Clare doesn't though. Sorry, had to get it out there) and after that ending, I know it is time for me to let this series go.

Until the TV show premieres...
Hopefully they won't ruin it...

P.S. Forgive me if this "review made no sense

Before Reading:
AHHHHHHHHHH!
WHY DID PANDEMONIUM HAVE TO END IN A CLIFFHANGER?!
I HATE CLIFFHANGERS!

It's number 1 on the list of things I hate
AND TO HAVE THIS BOOK COME OUT IN 2013?
AFTER THE WORLD ENDS!!
THAT'S TORTURE!
TORTURE!
IT SHOULD BE CONSIDERED ILLEGAL!

I would feel so much better if I was able to read a sneak peek
like 1 chapter
maybe 2
maybe 3....

Anyway...
I really really really really really really want this book
really
and am I the only one sensing a love triangle in this book?
DANG IT!
I wish those love triangles were never born!!!!!

EDIT:
OH MY HOLY FREXING DONUTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THE COVER!!!!
IT'S HERE!!!!!

*screams of joy*

ANOTHER EDIT:
WAIT...
WHAT?!!!!!
Didn't the release date used to be February?!!!!!!
Now it's March!!!!
MARCH!!!!!!!!!
I HAVE TO WAIT A MONTH LONGER!!!!! :'(


ANOTHER ONE OF MY NUMEROUS EDITS:
YAY!!!!
THE WORLD DIDN'T END!!!!!
NOW I'LL ACTUALLY GET TO READ THIS BOOK!!!!!

In March...
3 months from now...

Minkychick I FREAKN hate cliffhangers!!! I wanted to yell when pandemonium ended!!!! -.-


sh(e)reader I just finished the first book today. The 2nd is coming in at the library, but this one has over 200 holds on it!


Emma Grace, I totally agree with everything you've said here!


Jessica Helliwell on the back of the book it says somthing about "it will leave you waiting for the next installment" so is this defiantly the last book?


Cynthia I thought she chose Alex afterall, it's just she didn't know how to break it to Julian only...
