Overview

"I thought the two of you were scary individually. Together, you're worse. You know that...right? A lot worse, man..."

Plagued by prescient-seeming nightmares, and with several groups of hostile seers hot on their trail, Allie sets up camp in New York, along with Revik and the remnants of their seer alliance. Not long after they arrive, Allie coaxes Revik into helping her rob a bank to acquire a mysterious list of names...even as a human-killing virus strikes in San Francisco, and a lot of the people Allie cares about start to disappear. Fielding off attacks by the Lao Hu and the mysterious Shadow out of Argentina, Allie and Revik have to make impossible choices as they learn how to work together again. Before they can decide what to do, tragedy strikes their group, and they are forced to admit they might be outmatched.

Meanwhile, Allie's brother, Jon, seems to be going through some pretty strange changes of his own, including being stuck in an odd partnering with Wreg, the ex-captain of the rebels, as he tries to find the humans on the list who are believed to be important in the coming Displacement. When Allie finds out she's being stalked by the lead infiltrator of the Lao Hu, she has to decide whether to risk everything to save the people she loves in San Francisco, or go to war with the enigmatic Shadow, who seems to want to bring the end of the world on his own terms, and doesn't care how many humans he has to kill to do it...

    I met Allie, and now I'm in love. Or lust. Or both. This even

    I met Allie, and now I'm in love. Or lust. Or both. This evening I picked up the last of the main 'Allie's War' series, having burned through the entire series in about three weeks. I adore the world (complex and so real!), the story (unpredictable!), the characters (Allie, I want to be you and OM NOM NOM the relationships!), the writing (smooth and intense!). I can't seem to decide if I should try to read slowly and savor each section to make it last or just rush to answer all those burning questions!

    I love that every single plot twist has been foreshadowed well and each has been an 'ah-ha!' moment rather than being out of the blue or the hand of god. I love when my guesses are right and even more when I'm wrong. I love how the author raises the stakes instead of just creating obstacles, and I love your pacing and the way your tension ratchets up until I CAN'T WAIT, THEY HAVE TO WIN, RIGHT? RIGHT?

    So, I thought I'd post a review (I will cross post to all of the ones I've read.) to let other readers know how much they're missing out on!

    My rough synopsis of the beginning of the series: In a world where a second race of beings, the telepathic Sark, coexist somewhat uncomfortably with humans, Allie is just a normal human girl who may or may not have beat up her cheating ex's girlfriend. Whoops. Minor mistake, but she's doing her best to get on with life. All is good, but lately she's had this stalker. Kind of a creepy guy who watches her wherever she goes. Nothing to worry about, she's had plenty before, but this time, this time he snatches her up, carries her off, and introduces her to a whole other side of reality.

    This series IS New Adult, so there are sex scenes and a lot of sexual and relationship tension Not for readers under 18.

    I love this series, now I’ve got in clear(ish!) in my head I can follow what’s happening so much better. Its still the personal parts and the personalities, rather than the battle scenes and plans that I enjoy best. I tend to skip the plans and battles, just skim reading them * blush* embarrassing.... but I do that with lots of books, wars and how they play out don't move me but the people involved and what happens to them is really important to me.
    Poor Allie; when I look back to book one she's undergone such huge changes, both mentally and physically. Jon too has changed hugely, and in this book we see more of him and his thoughts. My heart breaks for him at one point – but there's what came as a big surprise to me later in store for him :-) Allie and Revik finally get some time together and I loved that. They've had so many problems to overcome, Revik has undergone such a personality change but he feels more like the original Revik now. I love the interaction between him and Allie, they're a well matched pair, and when we learn snippets from the past, such as when he was watching her when she thought she was just an “odd” human its really touching how he feels about her.
    There's the usual mix of plans working and plans going wrong, arguments and successes, Allie going out on a limb, Revik being his jealous self, more people out to get Allie, back stabbing, treachery, sometimes its hard to work out who really is on the “good” side, but finally I have worked out what the good side is!! It was great to keep up with some of the people I felt I was finally getting to know on a personal level, though even those are full of the unexpected at times. I love when Allie and Revik are together, that’s where their strength lies, and that’s what they need to do for themselves too, after all they seem to have spent more time apart than together, so to finally get them together through the whole book was a real treat. Plus of course it brings some hot sex scenes :-)
    Climatic ending too – not a real cliffhanger but something that's been brewing for ages and has finally happened. It makes me wonder what JC has in store for the next book, this series is so full of the unexpected, so it's hopeless trying to work it out in advance. Its a series that's never dull, never predictable, incredibly complex and yet full of people and events that the reader can believe in. ....don't try jumping in partway through – I think its one you need to read from book one to fully appreciate it.
    Stars: as I said, this gets better and better so full five from me, and that's from a type of read I never thought I’d enjoy!
