Review by Patrick:
I don't know what to think about this one. It definitely had an interesting view on the afterlife, or more correctly, limbo in the afterlife. The story was pretty basic. We did get answers to some questions that had been building up in the series, so that was nice. And there were some interesting twists throughout the book that kept it interesting.
But other than that, this book didn't have a whole lot of Casts in it. It did show that life isn't always black and white, good or evil. We all have some of both in us. The worst of us have some good, and the best of us have some bad.
I guess I was a little disappointed in this book. It didn't have the Hollywood dramatic finale that a end of series book usually do. I was expecting more bang and epic battles. And the book did leave questions unfinished, like what happens to the Far Keep and the family after everything is over? It seems like there could be more books to the series.
I'm going to rate this book a 3. It was good, but I definitely wanted more.
