This series started out with a bang, but mostly ended with a whimper. It was SOOOOO predictable.....I could have told you the ending of this book from page 1. YA trilogies that hold up all the way through book 3 are rare, so I shouldn't have been surprised. If you started the trilogy, you'll want to finish it, but don't say I didn't warn you that it's a total letdown. About a 2.5 star read........MAYBE.
