I really enjoyed this entire series, so was very excited when this conclusion book was finally released. I am however, completely disappointed with the ending!

The story started off great, picked up right where we left off with the previous one. I loved all of the plot twists that played out. It was going along just like the other books and I was hooked. But then came the ending. It felt incredibly forced, like someone was trying to beat a deadline or was just too tired/bored with writing this story. Once the 'final move' was decided, it took what felt like two pages to wrap it up with a tidy, sitcom-esque bow.

When I would finish reading the other books I was happy with the overall story and excited for the next. When I finished this one, my first thought was "hmph, that's it?!?" In my opinion it was definitely a huge let down considering the suspense and excitement of the rest of the series. Am I glad I read it? Yes, I wanted to finish the series. But, had the very first book been like this, I never would have read the second.

    Just trying to wrap it all up

    While the momentum in each book of this series slowed, this last booked came to a screeching halt. It felt like she was tired of writing them and wanted to wrap things up nice and tidy. The adult version "Shattered Promises" of "Fallen Star" series seems a bit more promising.

    Okay

    Loved the series liked the ending but its like it was rushed only around 150 pages and she just did a quicky ending to this series... im also in the middle of 4 different series by jessica sorenson dont you usually finish a series before starting another one?? This is the only series you have finished and if this is how you finish them that sucks... oh and by the way stop rewriting books its annoying!!!!

    :(

    I loved the series and was really excited for this book to come out. I thought it was awesome and stayed up really late to finish it. Then when I read the ending, I couldn't believe it! They still could have found a way to fix everything! Also, it never really explained if Evan was still an Omnia or not... his name is Evan, right? Anyway, I did not like the ending. I was expecting something better. I feel like there should be another book to explain everything.... So, for me, this book, the final book of the Fallen Star series, left me unsatisfied.

    SPOILER

    Ok... So, Imagine you can hit a reset button on your entire life as the story suggests. Wouldn't you think there would be a heck of a lot more to say about the outcome?
    Enjoyed the series but disappointed in the end. Left too much to be desired for me.

    ok

    The book was ok but i wish that it would not have ended like that i think that it is stupid for the whole story to just start over like that because if you knew that it was going to stat over then what was the point of reading the series and like most comments i felt that it was rushed and that the author just wanted to get it over with
    So i kind of a let down
