I felt like this whole series was a waste of my time but I wanted to finish it because I needed to know how it ended, not because I enjoyed reading it. It was a frustrating book and the change between narrators made me lose interest.

The disappointing sequel to a dissappointing sequel.

The same problems apply here as they did when it comes to the previous books: The characters are flat, their actions and feelings inexplicable and incomprehensible. In all fairness, the author has improved on that a little by giving Zenn more personality and his inner conflict in his POV made it possible to empathise with the character more. However, that was not the case for Jag - the other POV character in this book - much like in Possession

*howls* the turmoil that is this book! I want to cry myself to sleep now.

Edit: Real review time.

The review is also posted at The Bawdy Book Blog.

If there was ever an epic conclusion to a dystopian series, you’re looking at it right here. I was a heap of a sobbing mess when it was over and I may never recover!

The Possession series has been an interesting one from the beginning. Special powers. Mind wiping. Rebellion. Since I first read Possession, I feel in love with this world, and all of its unique qualities and quirks. Abandon is no different.

One element that I have loved / hated about this series is the constant change of POVs. This time around, we are taken into the minds of Jag and Zenn. While both characters have enough personality to carry Abandon easily, I found myself wanting to get back

*** Possible plot hole idea- Please comment!

What has this woman done?!?! When I got to the ending where the big thing happens (Yeah, THAT thing- You know what I mean if you've read it.) I felt like the author reached a hand down my throat and ripped my heart out from there. Of course that was the ending to expect. It was a great ending, but there will always be that part of me that wished it ended a tiny bit differently. And I know how it could have happened.

This was a good ending to the Possession series. One thing I've loved about all three books is Johnson's willingness to do anything to/with her characters. So often there's no real sense of suspense in a book because you know the author won't really kill that person off/give a victory to the bad guy/go (wherever) with the story.

But not Elana Johnson. None of her characters are safe and I absolutely love that. Abandon was pretty intense from start to finish. Nearly everyone from the previous two
