Mediocre Conclusion To the 'Retriever' Series.
This conclusion to the 'Retriever's' series is satisfactory but unremarkable. There's too much internal dialogue and self-analysis and not enough action. The primary plot, (which revolves around P.B. and notes/papers concerning his creation), isn't really developed. Instead of focusing on the conflict with the descendants of P.B.'s creator, a good two-thirds of the book recounts endless doubts and problems Wren and Sergie are individually experiencing. Plus, there's no definitive conclusion to their romance. Personally, I prefer actual conflict to internal strife, and I dislike a semi-romantic series which ends on a tenuous note. When compared with the other novels in this series, (especially 'Bring It On', 'Free Fall' and 'Burning Bridges'), this book falls well short of their mark in terms of urgency, action and pace. If you're a dedicated 'Retriever' fan, then reading this final installment is probably worthwhile; however, if you're trolling for a new read, I suggest you skip this book.Was this review helpful?
