After the ending of book 2, I was quite eager to see how it all ended.

Summer has definitely grown through the series. I struggled with her in the beginning. In this book, she's has definitely recognized that she needs to wear her manager hat a bit less. I didn't do a reread, so I couldn't remember a lot of the background with the label and management people. There was enough for me to get by on and really I just wanted more Caleb time.

Plot wise, it wasn't the epic finale it was expecting. It was

I loved this book so much. The other two books have been so good that i couldn't wait to read this one. (view spoiler) Overall, I would've liked if Matt was in this book more, but I get why he wasn't. (view spoiler) ...more

A totally engaging and satisfying ending to the saga of Summer & Dragonheart. This is a series I have no hesitation recommending to teens, especially ones who love music or are in the stage of figuring out what they want to do in their lives.

A satisfying ending to a great story of music, fulfilling dreams, and finding a future. Although everything isn't wrapped up into a tidy, little package, the ending is far more authentic with the way the trilogy is completed. Makes me want to listen to more Floyd and Beatles!

Kevin Emerson is getting a standing ovation from me. Because the last book of the Exile trilogy really hit the mark for me.

Seriously, DAYUM! Almost everything was really good, and the problems in the last 2 books managed to decrease. For example, the romance feels much more genuine this time around, and is put on the back-burner for most of the book so that we can focus on the mystery at hand. That way, it doesn't feel as out of place and somewhat meh it can be.

Also, I feel like the characters

what a fast read and a great end to the series. No real chapter breaks but time changes and different locations. I enjoyed this ending to the Dangerheart & the romance. I loved Val :) I could reveal more but overall I enjoyed this book.

This was a good teen read, kids set out to find their musician dad who supposedly died years ago.

Catherine has bottomed out in music and her band is in trouble. She is looking for a way to get to London and a solution to the dreams she has. If you like mystery and music you might like this third book in the Exile series. I received a copy of the book through Goodreads Giveaways for an honest review.

I thought that this book was great and encourage that other people read the book.

This shouldn't have been a trilogy. The author should have just added some more pages to the first book and left it as a stand-alone. The first book was good, the second book started to get boring, and the third was dragging. All the plot and writing and character development flaws and annoyances that I neglected to pay attention to in the first novel kept resurfacing in the later ones which consequentially turned my reading experience frustrating.
This was the quickest read of all three books in the series. It also ended up being my least favourite of the three. There was a lot less focus on the band as a whole and on their story together and a lot more attention put on Summer and Caleb, their relationship, and the mystery of the hidden songs. I enjoyed the series more when the focus was more on the band and the mystery of Caleb's father and his hidden songs were in the background.

Summer was a character I had a hard time connecting with t

I waited forever for this final book and it was a little disappointing. Did I expect everything to have a perfect ending complete with a pretty little bow? No. But I was expecting more. I felt that all the events leading up to the end were so engaging, and the end itself was a little bleh. I just think that with the different characters and everything that happened in the beginning of the series, Emerson could have done more with the ending.

In this fast paced conclusion to the Exile series, Summer and Caleb continue on their quest to locate Caleb's long thought dead father. The clues take them to London and down even more rabbit holes. There isn't much Dragonheart action and the book feels more like a coda to the series than a full fledged novel.

Straight up, this series is kind of awesome if you like contemporary books where music and bands and secrets play a strong role. Read my full review here

A great end to a lovely trilogy. This series will stay with me always.

This was a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy even though it lacked some of the surprising mystery and intese emotion of the first two books.

Loved reading this book! It was a great ending to the series, and I enjoyed it so much after Encore to an Empty Room's cliffhanger ending!
