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.

I liked the book but i feel like it was really rushed, like it was just written to quickly tie off the series. Of course i still love the characters but i wasn't really a fan of ending

So I just finished The Evanescence and I'm a little let down...don't get me wrong I love Jessica Sorensen LOVE her writing! This book however was just ok for me. I loved this series and was patiently waiting for the *tear* last book but it left me with really no closure. I mean it ended yes but it seemed like the book went way to fast and everything was easy and maybe just thrown all together? IDK.... All in all it was an ok ending to a great series just left me wanting more and a little confused. Can't wait to read more of her stuff!

I like many of you fell completely in love with the series but to end the series the way it did was a huge let down. I could tell it was rushed and i agree with other comments that it was forced. Just feels like not as much heart was put into this final book as the others. Jessica is very talented but its a shame that this book felt so different than the other books.

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 felt that the book was rushed and there were not any problems for Gemma. Everything kind of feel into place for her. The ending was too simple but i did enjoy the epilouge. I am really upset it is the last book to the series because it was amazing and im not ready for it to end. Other than that the book was good!

Wow. Intense plot, intriguing, and, best of all... a happy ending to the Fallen Star series AND the Fallen Souls series. Jessica Sorensen is an amazing writer! Read this book!

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.

I love this series and was so happy to be able to read it all at once, but I didn't like the ending. All of what they went through just gone? I have reread the series many times and still love it, but always feel left hanging at the end. I mean what happened after the evanesence? How was Gemma's life in the other universe. :( I would still recomend this series to everyone though. And this series specifically, not the adult version. The adult version was a dissapointment. Love this series though!

I was really disapointed with the ending! It seemed like there could have been more added on. It just seemed rushed at the end, but i am an emotional person, and i did end up crying at some parts, lol. But i was impressed with the whole fallen star and fallen souls series, thats why i give it 5 stars! Im just so upset its over.... im getting emotional because this was the only book series i have ever read that made me cry! I am SOOOOOOOOOO UPSET!!!!!!! Ugh

I love this book, all of them but to actually read a book that put an end to a life of suffering and misery and bring true love and friendship together...feels good! I will miss them though and hope that jessica could release something about their new life.

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.
