I read the first two books in the series and I absolutely loved them. This one? Not so much...

First of all, if you are a fan of Violet and Jay, prepare for some dissappointment. I felt that Jay was reduced to a supporting character in this book rather than being more central to the plot (as he was in the first two). Although his and Violet's relationship was still cute, it was not as enticing as it was in the first books. Jay was hardly in the book and when he was it was only for a few pages.

Violet also irritated me a bit in this book even though I adored her in the first books. I felt that she was too indescisive and very naive and that bothered me a bit. I also think that she made some stupid descisions that really lessened her appeal for me. She kept getting irritated with people for stupid reasons and I think that she changed a lot from the first books, and not in a particularly good way.

The love triangle that occured between Jay, Violet, and Raffe felt very Twilight-y and unoriginal. I think that the whole love triangle concept is very overused in YA fiction, and I was really hoping that this author wouldn't introduce it jusr because it is so expected. The book really had a lot going on and didn't need a love triangle to complicate things or make them more exciting.

While reading this book, I definitely got a bit bored. I felt like the climax was pretty similar to the first two books and a bit repetitive. I found myself itching to get to the end, but not really in a good way, in more of a "I've already began reading this so might as well finish" way. With the other books, I was sad to get to the end. With this one I was actually relieved.

Now onto the redeeming qualities:
The book had some unexpected twists and turns that made it interesting. The end was surprising and although this is definitely not even close to one of my top books, I will wait patiently for the next one (the ending does leave A LOT of room for a fourth book).

    Review: The Last Echo

    I was really looking forward to this latest installment in this series. It's filled a little void I've had since I've basically stopped reading adult mysteries/thrillers. And while this book was a great read overall, there were some elements to the story that bothered me a little bit.

    I enjoyed this new group that Violet is working with. I think she needs to be around people that are like her. It might help her to better accept her abilities and know how to use them to help those around her. I was intrigued that we know as little about this group as Violet does. Everyone of there abilities is different, and some are better at hiding their true capabilities. I also thought the dynamics of the group was interesting. Turns out there's some connections there that I did not see coming.

    I didn't really enjoy how this new group gets in the way of Violet's relationships. Her friends know nothing about her ability, so she's constantly lying to her friends. Jay may know about her abilities, but she can't tell that about what the group does. I didn't get enough of Jay in this book. First, because Violet is off working all the time. The story focuses on that and what it is doing for Violet. Second, I was really disappointed that the dreaded love triangle was introduced. Don't get me wrong, I like Rafe. But, I like Jay and Violet MORE. Thankfully, I think it was over before it could ever really get started. It just was a blow to the story.

    While, I found the book was the most predictable of the three, there were enough surprises to keep me on my toes. I enjoyed the storyline with gang leader (I found him creepier than the serial killer). Plus, there are some twists at the end that I totally love. I'm completely looking forward to the next book in the series.
