I can't believe this series is now over. But I think it was a great ending for the series.
I swear for the whole book I was on edge worried what would happen next and rightfully so. There were quite a few things I did not see coming that had me sitting just having the word 'Fuck' going over and over in my head.
Waverly was awesome as usual and loved her strength throughout this book even though she was shit scared for most of it.
Kieran was more tolerable but I will never like him. (view spoiler)

My history with trilogies is that usually the first book is the best. In the case of Amy Kathleen Ryan's Sky Chasers, the third book is the best. Which fills me with such delight, because it means the author's skills have IMPROVED over the course of the series - just the way writing should be.

With the two earlier novels, the three lead characters were very annoying. That's gone here in Flame - Waverly, Kieran, and Seth are more concerned with staying alive and the wellbeing of their parents than

January 7, 2014? Are you fucking kidding me?

At least it's coming out in January and not, like, October or December, though.

This is not acceptable, esteemed publishers.

Normally, I wait pretty patiently for my highly anticipated books to come out, but about this book...

So, when I first saw this, I'm all:

Then, I'm all:

This book needs to come the fuck out before I punch my fist through a wall? I mean, 2014?!?! Why can't it come out in 2013, at least? Whhhy?

I find I don't have very much to say about Flame. From the moment I put down my copies of both Glow and Spark, it was as if my fingers were possessed, desperately needing to type, to crow in glory, to shove this series into the hands of every unsuspecting bibliophile. After Flame, however, I remember sitting. Simply sitting, soaking up the lingering words in my mind. I was - and still am - very much shocked by the brilliance of this concluding installment. While I may not have much to regale abo ...more

From a thrilling start to an okay middle, we all expect either the good or the bad for the ending. I'm very proud to admit that Amy Kathleen Ryan has done it again with Flame. This was a heart-pounding thrilling ending to the trilogy, and she just topped it off with the perfect ending that we never would've imagined happening in the first book.

I'd really like to begin talking about that ending first. So this was my reaction when I was done with the book:

I just couldn't believe it c

I think this quote by Noam Chomsky, chosen by Amy Kathleen Ryan and included in Flame, sums up this trilogy rather well:
It is only in folk-tales, children’s stories, and the journals of intellectual opinion that power is used wisely and well to destroy evil. The real world teaches very different lessons, and it takes willful ignorance to fail to perceive them.

Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. We’ve seen far too many examples in Amy Kathleen Ryan’s Sky Chasers tril
Absolutely rewarding ending to an awesome and exciting series. Recommended.

***Review of the entire trilogy***

4.5 out of 5 stars (for each one)

I read the first book of this trilogy, Glow, last year, and it was a book that grew on me more and more as I looked back on it. I reread it recently so I could finish the trilogy, and I wasn’t disappointed.

So we have two massive ships on their way to New Earth: the Empyrean (where the main characters live) and the New Horizon. The New Horizon should be way ahead of the Empyrean (they left a year earlier), but everyone’s talking a
