This review is for the final book in the DARKEST POWERS trilogy. If you are planning on or already reading this series, don't read this yet!!! :)
My name is Chole Saunders. I'm fifteen, and I would love to be normal.
But NORMAL is one thing I'm NOT.
For one thing, I'm having feelings for a certain antisocial werewolf and his sweet tempered brother--who just happens to be a sorcerer--but, between you and me, I'm leaning toward the werewolf.
My friends and I are also on the run from an evil corporation that wants to get rid of us--permanently.
DEFINITELY NOT NORMAL.
And finally, I'm a genetically altered necromancer who can raise the dead, rotting corpses and all, without even trying.
AS FAR AWAY FROM NORMAL AS IT GETS.
I already said this up at the top, but this is the final book in the series I have been reading this past week. I, again, really liked this book. I was starting to get a little sick of reading about the same characters though. I guess discovering a really awesome series after all the books have come out has its pros and cons. I always complain about having to wait for "the next book" to come out, but I guess I like having a break from the story to build up excitement for the next. But then there's the waiting, which always sucks. It's a double-edged sword, I tell ya.
I still liked this book, like I said, and I was glad for an ending. Although, let's be honest-- it wasn't really an "ending." I don't know that with "supernatural powers" that last their whole lives, these characters stories can ever really be "over". But, the trilogy is ended (as far as I know) and the story was tied up as well as could be expected. One thing I CAN say, without giving anything away, is that this book definitely is not lacking in the twists, turns, gore, adventure, tension, and action....department. Is that a department??? It is now.
Overall, a good ending to a fantastic trilogy. I hope you aren't disappointed-- I wasn't! :) Now I'm off to read something with NO ghosts or re-animated corpses. Wish me luck!
