I'm super bummed. I have passionately loved this series all the way through. When I started Promised I was so thrilled that we were going in the direction of a YA Handmaid's Tale. What's not to love about that? But the characters were so flat. And not true to their former selves. The plot was all over the place and felt repetitive and manipulative. Don't know what to do with someone? Throw them in jail. And the bad guys were so over the top none of it felt believable. This ending was extremely unsatisfying. Now I want a fourth one so O'Brien can redeem herself. Birthmarked still one of my favorite books ever.
