If you haven’t yet started these books, DO NOT READ THE SYNOPSIS FOR THIS ONE. All of the fun is in the not knowing and I think it’s stupid that just because it’s Book #3 the publishers/blurbists/whoever makes these choices decide to spoil their own shit.
That being said, I ain’t gonna spoil nada. Here’s what I’ll tell you about The Last Town. This is the “action” book. You know what I mean, right? You’ve made it through the backstory – some questions have been answered – some more questions have come up. Now it’s time to poop or get off the pot and take a stand.
That means there is a lot of fighting . . . .
Okay, maybe that’s just the way I picture it. It’s probably something more like this . . .
or this . . .
There were also times when fighting wasn’t an option. Those moments require mass use of the patented Tom Cruise Run . . . .
Guaranteed to get everyone out of almost every sticky situation . . .
Well, nearly everyone . . .
Then STUFF happened. Some of which made me go . . .
Leading to the ending. That f-ing ending . . . .
You’re either going to love or hate the ending.
I’m giving this one 3.5 Stars (but rounding up) for that ending. All in all, though? This was the first series I’ve actually been interested in reading nearly back-to-back-to-back in forever. It kept me reading at a frantic pace, kept me on my toes, and kept me guessing up to the very end. Highly recommend.
