I was severely disappointed in this book. I became a pretty big fan of her Edge of Nowhere series and was really excited to see how it would all come together in the final book. It honestly seemed like she just became bored with writing this series and wanted to end it in whatever way was easiest for her with no consideration for the fans of these books. The ending is a complete joke, I was in awe when I reached the last page. I hope that as a critically acclaimed author she either writes another book that actually completes the story line or gives some kind of apology for just giving up on it.

I expected so much more of this story. So many questions unanswered. There needs to be another book to explain some questions that have been there since the beginning of the series.

What a mess. The summary lies; there is no "climax" whatsoever in this book. George attempts to juggle at least six separate plots, mashing them all together haphazardly with a complete absence of resolution. You're not going to find answers to anything. Everything is inconclusive, as if the last 50 pages of the book with all the real answers just got chopped off. George also made some very clunky writing choices that hit me in the face every time they happened.

(By the way, the pathetically uneducated use of the "crazy gibberish-speaking Christian bigot" stereotype was aggravating as frick and made me sympathize entirely with Kate and not at all with Jenn. Nice going there, George.)
