In the words of Elder, OH FREX THAT WAS LOONS!!!! Mind is totally blown!
Maybe I'm just coming off my book high but it is 5am (yesterday when I was writing this :-D) and after not being able to put the book down for longer than to eat and run to the bathroom a couple times I must say I thought it was a fabulously, nerve wracking, intense, epic, mind blowing conclusion!
I was so excited to finally get the Frozens woken up and to see this planet and what is inhabiting it. As expected total epic chaos ensued! Distrust and lies continued. Earthborns against shipborns! Murders around every corner. WTF! Like serious epic mass destruction! Actually I totally knew who the traitor was but I had no idea how it would all play out with the motives and final goals and who all was involved. It was beyond what I ever imagined. I had a million theories running through my mind the entire time. I was so on edge as pieces slowly turned out to be true and others proven false. I loved watching all the little clues fall into the bigger mystery and story. This planet had so much more history around it than I ever thought going into this series.
I love Amy and Elder! I looked forward to all their sweet stolen moments. I love the trust and confidence that has grown between each other and how well they work together. Although Elder still shows a bit of a jealous streak when a hot Frozen is woken up. A hot Frozen! hehe But Elder has become a serious hero. Really! He literally gave up his whole world to give the world to Amy! And even though he was thrown into a leader position that he doesn't really need to follow through with anymore, he will always give up everything and anything for his people. He really was an awesome character.
The planet itself was like its own character. So amazing and kept me on my toes. Ahh I guess I can't say more because I want everyone to be shocked and amazed by it like I was. The ending was great but far from what I was expecting and not exactly perfect. It did take 929304834348203948203948 disasters to get to the end but I think there is hope for a good life! Twists and turns I truly didn't see coming. Mind totally blown! I will miss this series!
"I've lost nearly everything else I love; I can't lose you too."
"I'll always come back to you," I say, pulling her close.
