Edited 12/1/2016

Holy stuff happening, Batman. I needed to be productive today, but this series said "Nope! Read me!" and so I obeyed. I'll be honest, I started reading this in the afternoon, and was just about to put it down so I could do the other stuff I had to do, but then a lot started happening in the book. There was so much stuff happening that I don't even know if I can fully wrap my head around it all.

William and Quinn go through a TON of things in this book. Everything that was building up in the first three books just comes crashing down in this book. Trying to do this without spoilers is hard. I will say that it was nice that all of the indecisions finally got resolved. There was no more "I don't know what to do" or "I have to think about it," which was nice. As much as I enjoyed the three previous books, the lack of deciding was getting annoying. Which, there's a nice little moral of the story in that not making a decision is still a decision.  However, the sequence of events is just a lot to take in. It kind of felt like everything was being crammed into this book as quickly as possible.

Can I just say, Go, Linnea! I would love to have a little short story or something about her somewhere down the line. I will say, one thing I appreciated about this book is that it was also done with all of the secrets. Everything was out in the open, and it went along a lot quicker because of that.

The thing that confuses me the most is the ending. I don't hate the ending. In fact, I enjoyed it. What bothers me is it's supposed to be the conclusion to the story. And maybe at one time it was the conclusion, but there are more books in the series from what I can tell on Kindle. I know that shouldn't impact my views on this book, but it does. I want conclusions with my series. I'd like for them to stay ends. I've got the fifth book downloaded, but I don't know if I'm going to read it or not. We shall see. Overall, I enjoyed the book, but I wasn't as into it as some of the others in the series.
