"Your eyes were the color of freedom. Of my future. They were full of so much sorrow, so much determination. And strength... Waking in your bed was like waking from a ten-year coma and seeing an angel...Because just looking at you, with or without wings, I was reborn."
"Against every impossibility, I'm innocent and untouched once more."

This is a three part collection of short stories. It mostly takes place after the 3rd book. The first part gives a better insight into both Allison's childhood and Thomas's. The second part is seeing some of the things from the first book in Jeb's point of view. Which truely shows Jeb's love and devotion to Alyssa. Finally, the third part is a bunch of short stories ranging from the end of the third book to the birth of her and Morpheus's son. It hops around but it has it reasons.
This book gives insight and closure to the splintered series. I loved all of it really. It makes me sad because this truely is the end of the series. I know that this will definitely be on my list of rereads eventually, but for now it is goodbye. After reading the third book of the series I had felt not as satisfied as I would have liked. I still feel that allowing her to have both was a bit of a lazy way to end the love triangle, but this book did help me come to terms with it lol. I think that anyone who loved the Splintered series, should read this book. Its a great way to wrap it all up.
How I choose my rating:
1* Did not finish, or hated it but forced myself to finish.
2** Didn't really like it. Didn't hate it but not sure why I finished it other then for some closure.
3*** I liked it. I had some issues with it, but as a whole it was good. I probably won't reread again ever, but there is a chance I might finish the series. (If part of one) But if not it's not a huge loss.
4**** I really liked this book. Maybe not a work of genius, but highly entertaining. I might reread this again, and I will finish the series. (If part of one) I would recommend to those I know hold interest in this books content.
5***** I loved this book. I found little to no issues with it at all. I will definitely be rereading this and probably more than once. I will finish the series and reread it multiple times. (If part of one) I will recommend this book to EVERYONE!!!!
