End of the Lie by Diana Rodriguez Wallach is third book of the thrilling young adult Anastasia Phoenix series. This is a continuing story that started with book one, Proof of Lies, and picks up with each additional installment so they should preferably be read in order to understand the action and adventure within.

In the first book we met Anastasia Phoenix who had always felt on the outs wherever she’d been since her scientist parents had moved the family all around the world over the years. Whe

Please be aware that this is a book three, so my review will contain spoilers for the first books.

End of the Lie was a great way to conclude the Anastasia Phoenix trilogy.  I really enjoyed this book and thought it wrapped up well.

End of the Lie starts off where book two ended.  Anastasia, Keira, Julian, Charlotte, and Marcus are hiding out in Europe.  They have decided that they need to find all their parents and put an end to Department D.   Anastasia is still dealing with the news that Urban

This is the final book in a trilogy and I really enjoyed reading it. It is a YA version of a spy thriller. Anastasia's parents had helped creating a world that is dangerous and deceptive and now it is up to her to do protect herself and her friends before things get out of hands once again. Things are never as they seem and it is becoming more and more difficult for her to keep up with everything going on around her. Now, even her friends seem to have turned against them. There are rumo

End of the Lie is the third and final chapter in the Anastasia Phoenix trilogy by author Diana Rodriquez Wallach. This story continues where Lies That Bind left off. Everything has changed for 17-year old Anastasia Phoenix. It started 4 years ago when her parents were presumed to be dead and her older sister Keira was forced into raising her alone. Then she was too was thought to be dead in a highly suspenseful first install
Having read and thoroughly enjoyed the first two books in this series, I was keen to read this finale. Even though it is almost a year since I finished the first two stories, the talented author quickly immersed me back into this thrilling story of family, espionage, deceit, danger and the dreaded Department D. The stories are written chronologically, each following on from events in the previous book, so I recommend reading them in the correct sequence so you understand just what is happening.

Well, it really is the end of the lie and the story as well. Luckily everything is well explained in the end, so no mystery there. The roller coaster is slowing down in this 3rd book although I would prefer it being faster from the beginning. I feel that the story is getting complicated near the end and it

Remember, friends, this is not even a little bit a standalone, but instead the conclusion to an epic dangerous YA spy adventure. Make sure to read the books in order for the story to unfold.

After the way the last book ended, I had no idea what disaster Diana was going to throw at her characters next, but the direction this book took was so unexpected- and in the best of ways! Not only does Anastasia and company have the fact her

'End of the Lie' is the exciting final installment in a young adult mystery/thriller series that fans of the genre are sure to love. The story continues to follow our main character, Anastasia, a teen who thought she knew the people she loved and trusted but they turned out to be nothing but lies - and dangerous ones. I thought the plot was fascinating and loved following Anastasia on the final part of her quest for the truth. It takes her across the globe and into the past - all of whi

"End of the Lie" finishes the Anastasia Phoenix trilogy. Note: this review may contain spoilers for the first two books. Anastasia's life changed forever after her parents died when she was fourteen and her older sister left college to raise her. Her life changed even more when her sister disappeared from their house, leaving behind a bathtub full of blood. Although the amount of blood would suggest her sister had been killed, Anastasia insisted the police find her, and when they did not, Anasta ...more

I would like to thank Entangled Publishing and the Netgalley website for this partnership.

I have finally finished this series, I have been waiting too long to find out the whole truth about Anastasia Phoenix.

It features the beautiful Anastasia who, with her writings on espionage and near-death experiences that come out in the open, thought everything would get better, except that she was wrong. Her friends became her enemies by causing the death of innocent people because of the dangerous world

End of the Lie was the final book in the Anastasia Phoenix trilogy, and probably the best one too.

There was a lot of pain and angst, some fun moments, some love felt ones, a few heart breaking scenes. Overall, the perfect mixture for a YA book. A bonus? It also has the whole suspense thing going, making it even more enjoyable. 

The reason I loved this book so much better is that there was a lot of character development in this one. In Anastasia, in Markus and even in Keira and Antonio. It was nic

Overall this was a fun series. Of course, completely unbelievable and a tad ridiculous, but fun. It is fiction so who cares how plausible. My main criticism of the series is probably the character of Anastasia Phoenix. I found her to be a little selfish and uncompromising. Her behavior towards Marcus's parents and brother compared with her behavior towards her own parents was really hypocritical. Because of that, I find one aspect of the ending of the series disappointing.

I enjoyed the character
Twisting mystery!
Thanks to NetGalley and Entangled Teen for the opportunity to read and review End of the Lie by Diana Rodriguez Wallach!
Anastasia watches her sister become more and more depressed because of her traumatic kidnapping and the bad publicity that follows. They are both trying to adjust to the new situation with their parents and unwanted fame. Twists and turns keep them running and confused but they stay by each other’s sides to get through their intense struggles. Anastasia sees th

End of the Lie picks up right where Book 2 left off and all you need to know is I highly recommend this series and author. Written by the amazing Diana Rodriquez Wallach, this YA read is action-packed, fast-paced and incorporates elements of young romance, mystery, and suspense. Hits the ground running from the very first page and keeps you turning those pages...nicely done Ms. Wallach!!!

Having read the other 2 in this I was glad to jump into this one. Reading YA books level out the read for me they are quite exciting at times. Anastasia does know how to hold your attention with more drama that came her way. The direction that it goes in sometimes was intriguing and different with this author knowing how to keep her audience. This one will hit the high point with the pace at times being quick. Hold on for this one and enjoy every bit.

End of the Lie is the third of Diana Rodriguez Wallach's Anastasia Phoenix series.  This is where all the loose ends are tied up and questions finally answered.  I've enjoyed this series and was looking forward to finding out how things would end.  A YA spy series has been fun to read.  With suspense and action moving the series along, I was anxious to see what would happen next.

It really bothers me that they never explained what happened with Keira and Antonio in Barcelona and finding Sophia. Obviously they didn’t talk to her, but why was it not explicitly stated. Kind of plain ending but I liked the loose ends all tied up. Worthwhile read for sure.

My least favorite of the gots a little too tidy at the end, like a seamless wrap-up that is too convenient. The mystery is solved, the kids are okay, and Department D is done. Like I said, too tidy. But, I am glad I was able to find out "what happens" and the series is done. :)

Thanks to NetGalley and Entangled Publishing for the opportunity to read and review Lies That Bind by Diana Rodriguez Wallach. Here I am reviewing the final book in this series, and wow! I flew though this series, and am so happy I was able to read it! While not the most original or 'earth-shattering' series, I loved the nostalgic feel of the type of books I read only a few years ago, and I loved that this series is one of those that I'm still able to enjoy even now that I'm well into my 20s.

End of the Lie is the last book of the Anastasia Phoenix trilogy and I think it's a nice way to close an adventure. The book provides enough closure and development for its characters and it leaves the reader satisfied. Some scenes and dialogue can be cheesy and a bit cringe-worthy at some points but the action and the suspense keeps the reader going. The characters have grown so much through the trilogy a

he anastasia phoenix series comes to a close with end of the lie. and while the events of the previous novel seemingly left everything exposed and out in the open, there are still plenty of twists and turns that come our way.

the action is fast-paced and intense, and the plot twists and reveals work hard to keep us on the edge of our seats. we travel once again across europe in search of answers, and i loved seeing the sights between poland and prague.
