You have to read it ofcouse, your invested in the series. But it ends oddly, like the author was tired of the subject. Maybe she was, I was. It's never a good thing to make the heroine a dumb, emotional brat, who put her wishes before all things. Lots of glaring open ended items, gosh I hope the serial killings and the London thread have some future purpose other than making Stan useful. That said, 1-4 all good or I would not read 5.

I truly enjoyed reading the last of the Portal Chronicles. I was saddened when I realized the story ended. There were parts in the book that led me to believe the story would continue in another book. I am hoping to see Imogen Rose revisit the story and pick up on some of those parts that leave you hanging a bit. The story leaves you wanting more.

This is the final book of the Portal Chronicles series. That, apparently, brings a conclusion to the time-and-dimension-hopping adventures of the two Arizonas, Arizona Stevens and her alter ego in another dimension, Arizona Darley. From the very beginning of this series, I had a lot of questions as to how this was going to all work out. I didn’t really care for Olivia, I felt like she was controlling and manipulative. As the story progressed we learn more about her past and present, and through her daughter Arizona Darley, I learned to understand the choices she made. She is the perfect flawed character. I liked this story the best, I think, because it made me realize how invested I had become in each of these characters’ future. Any author who can do that to a reader has surely succeeded in what they have set out to do. Arizona Darley is definitely her mothers’ daughter in this installment. She has her strengths, convictions, and stubbornness to do what is right for everyone involved; however for herself first and foremost. She is a rebellious and willful teenager who thinks she can handle any given situation. I appreciated the way the author proved her wrong time and again. (Sorry, that was the mother in me enjoying a little Karma vicariously.) I am sure we have not seen the last of these characters, there is a war raging that needs to be handled. I look forward to seeing many of the Wanderers again in the Bonfire Academy series and perhaps even Arizona Darley. I am crossing my fingers and toes anyway. This series explores a truly unique concept with strongly developed characters and I would highly recommend it to young adults and older adults who want to be swept away on a fascinating journey. I found no editing or formatting issues whatsoever. FYI: I would recommend reading the entire series from the beginning. Each successive story builds from the story before; reading out of order would leave a reader confused and lacking necessary back story. This is especially important between Momentum and Fusion. There is a small amount of adult language. **Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog. May have received a free review copy. ** May 5, 2013

The covers of past Portal Chronicles books each depicted a new moon phase. Imogen Rose set herself up to have to wind up the series with this book, with a full moon on the cover. I’ve read several times in several different venues that Rose is a “pantser” rather than an outliner and didn’t know where the story was going; I was interested in seeing how she’d wrap up the overall story line. I saw two logical conclusions, which I won’t detail to avoid spoilers, but will say that one of my ideas left room for some of the characters from this series to find their way into Rose’s Bonfire Chronicles or Bonfire Academy series (a very real possibility since the world’s occupied by all of her books have some overlap and we’ve seen some characters appear in both). This still seems possible, while also bringing Arizona’s tale to a logical end, not unlike what I’d pictured, but ultimately a bit different and even better than what I was thinking. Actually, it was the perfect ending. One that should leave most Portal Chronicles fans satisfied. Reaching the end of a favorite series, which this has become, is bittersweet. The cliché says that all good things must come to an end, and I suppose that’s right. A book series that goes on too long often falls into the trap of too much repetitiveness and formula, and I appreciate that the Portal Chronicles are concluding before that had a chance to happen. I’ve enjoyed watching Rose grow as a storyteller and author, and look forward to continuing to do so as her other series progress. **Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog.
