My Thoughts: I am not sure what to say without spoiling. I really liked how everything turned out, even though I was shocked and sad. I saw some parts coming, but not all. There was just a little too much fighting for my taste and this book seemed a little dragged out. There parts that made up for it. I ended up liking characters I was sure I would loathe.Overall, I would say I really enjoyed this trilogy. I am sad to see it end.

Funny story. I was trying so hard to finish this book Wednesday (yesterday). I started at 55% and made it to 94% before I had to leave for work. I planned to finish it on my breaks, but it ended up only being like three pages left of the story! So, I technically finished it after midnight … today.

My Thoughts: I was not paying too much attention with this series, I guess. I read this in a book that was a collection of novellas by various people titled ‘Til the World Ends.

Anyway, I really enjoyed this novella because it is set in the time when normal life is about to completely disappear. It makes me feel more connected to the series, because this is more relate-able than the point in time in the main books. I also loved the main characters.

I would recommend reading the main books before the novella, because it would take some of suspense and wonder out of the series and that’s no fun.

My Thoughts: I am having mixed feels about whether I like this series or not. I am liking certain parts, but I also feel that is kind of dragged out. It is not boring or anything, and I can’t really describe it without spoiling. Anyway, I will say I almost threw the book across the room a couple times. I am anxious to finish the trilogy, but I will have to read the novella first because it is dangerously close to being overdue — tomorrow!

My Thoughts: At first, I had a hard time getting over how much this book reminded me of the world from the Darkness Before Dawn trilogy. However, the similarities quickly faded away. I like the structure of the story line, as well as the characters. I feel that Allie should be more conflicted, but maybe I am too critical sometimes. I enjoyed the ending of this book (suspense!) and am excited to read the next.

Oh! I have noticed something since I have the first two books already from the library. The covers do not match. I have found out that the hardback cover looks different in the first book only. The paperbacks seem like they would look nice together. That upsets me. I like the cover for the paperback edition.
