Boo! Knowing this was a five-book series, I was ready for the
conclusion, but I didn't expect it to be quite so open-ended. I
sometimes wonder if authors do that because they think readers are
intelligent enough to come up with their own interpretation or if they
do it because they don't know how to end a series well. Yes, this book
is quite exciting at times and has some nice intrigue, but this was
supposed to be the one that ended it, and as corny as it may sound I
wanted the happy ending. A movie like "Inception" can work
with an open-ended conclusion, but this series should have had more at
the end. And did it have to be quite so preachy with its anti-war
message (granted this series does it more effectively than most others.)
That being said Collins did a fantastic job creating complex characters
that you really learn about, and in most cases genuinely like. Gregor.
Boots. Luxa. Ripred. Ares. The Bane. Also, the love story between
two major characters is one of the more genuine connections you will
find in entertainment, and this is probably what I most wish had been
resolved. As for another major character, I was angry with Collins when
this one was killed towards the end of the novel. It was totally
unexpected and totally unnecessary. A good book but not a fitting end
for this outstanding series.
Unless...and this is always a possibility as long as Collins is
writing...a sixth book were created. One that will finally give us the
answers and maybe a bit more of the ending we crave after reading such a
great series. She's obviously got it in her to write very well, so I
believe she's got it in her to provide us one more entry in the series.
I figure they won't know if we don't tell them, so I've already sent an
e-mail request tonight to Scholastic Press. It's worth a try.

    How can you do this?

    How can sz do this to us she makes something amazing and then makes it end like that. Its like she lights a fire that means something to everyone than douses it in water and kills all chances of happiness. Another negative comment is that there are so many deaths! How many people can you kill before you lose all your readers? On the good side it was well written and had some ok parts

    A reviewer

    Like other reviewers, I was disappointed in the fifth book. It wasn't BAD, but it wasn't great either. The ending was a let-down, but to me, so was the rest of the book. I just expected more after the first four books were so engrossing. What was the point of this fifth book?

    Good plot, but too gory for young readers.

    I really enjoyed the first four books of the series, but I was a little disappointed in this one. The plot was fine, but for a book aimed at 9-12 year olds, it was way too gory. Details such as ripping off Twirltoung's head and throwing it at Gregor and Ares was too graphic for this age, as were the burning of the rats and the blood on the floors in the castle. I recommended this series to my nine year old niece, but now I'm sorry I did - I don't want her to have nightmares . . .so beware if your children are sensitive.
