    on all levels, except physical, I am dead.my feelings and I… we have been through a lot. like, you know when you finish a really good series and you feel like you’re intruding, but on the entire universe so there isn’t really anywhere for you to leave, you’re just stranded in the void? it's like your body isn’t even yours and your existence isn’t “there”, as though you’re the imposter in this body that you’re occupying?I guess...

    Maaaaaaan this was so good I’m so sad the series is over but wow it was a wild ride.
  • Caz (littlebookowl)
    A fantastic finale to an exhilarating series! The shock-factor wasn't quite as intense as the previous books for me, but the action never ceases. My poor heart was put under so much stress throughout this book - I was so anxious about the fate of all of these characters. I'll need some time to recover, then I'll get to doing a full review.EDITRe-read the book on audio, and it was just as fantastic.Review copy provided by authors in exchange for a...

    All the stars fit this fantastic book! I wish this wasn't the end of the trilogy! But I have to say this was my favorite of all three books! The Audible versions of this trilogy is amazing! There is a full cast and sound effects. It makes me feel closer to the characters for sure. I'm going to re/read all three books when my physical copy gets here. Well, I'm going to try to this year. I just don't want them to end so I want to re visit them back...

    #1 Illuminae #2 Gemina #3 Obsidio Wow. Where do I even begin? This is one of my favorite series of all time, and I was so eager and terrified to see it end. Jay and Amie have scripted the most beautiful world, with the most lovable, endearing characters, and I was horrified to see how the war would end—but, above all else, I knew this would be a ride I couldn’t miss. I genuinely don’t even know how to break this review up, because I don’...

    I just don’t like this series that much.Don’t get me wrong, I see the appeal. Space battle. Romance. Unique formatting but it’s like 700 pages long so you feel accomplished. The occasional joke. What’s not to love?https://emmareadstoomuch.wordpress.co...Except for all the things there are not to love about it, and also that all three books are exactly the same, following the exact same plotline and just throwing a couple more characters i...

    some books are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them. this book, this series, is all of the above. my mind simply cannot comprehend what i just read because its greatness transcends human understanding. what a blessed world we live in where this kind of greatness exists for us mere mortals. 5 stars some books are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them. this book, this...

    ”I AM NOT GOOD.NOR AM I EVIL.I AM NO HERO.NOR AM I VILLAIN.”I’m starting this review with a quote from AIDAN because it’s awesome and I’m going to miss it like crazy! This last book was pretty amazing, but (and you can already tell by my “but” that it’s not going to be five stars this time around) for me it kind of lacked the shocking moments and cruel plot twists I got used to in the first two books. XDDon’t get me wrong, there...

    "You know better than any what I am. Every story needs a monster.And this story will end soon." And so it ends. This series has come so far. Honestly, it reminds me of the Lunar Chronicles in that it began with two characters and keeps expanding to a larger scope. With excellent plot twists, fantastic characters, and some of the most unputdownable writing in the world, this basically killed me.Here, let me just rant a little about Them Iconic Ch...

    A Strong 4 Stars "You know better than any what I am. Every story needs a monster.And this story will end soon" Holy This entire ending was a W H I R L W I N D of emotions for me, but overall such a satisfying conclusion. This book brilliantly uses its unique format, just like it's predecessors. It features all the characters we know and love, as well as several new faces. I'm struggling to form a cohesive review so let me just summarize every...

    2 stars - This book fell victim to the same problemsI had with Gemina. Illuminae was new and fresh, and the second two books reused the same plot twists over and over that it became predictable. In addition, this had many of the same problems I’ve talked about in other critiques of YA finales in the past. I knew what to expect, so the attempted tugs at my heart strings failed. Still a fun ride, but doesn’t live up to the first book imo. Full ...
  • karen
    oooh, goodreads choice awards semifinalist for best young adult fantasy 2018! what will happen?a strong ending to a seriously enjoyable trilogy. this series had so many obstacles to overcome in the realm of THINGS THAT KAREN DISLIKES READING ABOUT, it’s a miracle that i liked it as much as i did. or at all. outer space, romance plot after romance plot after romance plot, snarky precocious overskilled teenagers, gimmicks aplenty - it’s more o...

    Heartfelt shout out to myself and how frEAKING TRAUMATISED I AM RIGHT NOW. I swear I procrastinated this book so badly and then though, no, I need to just finish off the series (of which I adore the first two books). So I was brave. I was determined. And?OK BUT IT RIPPED OUT MY HEART AND SORT OF HEALED IT ... BUT LIKE WOW. WOW. IT'S GOOD OK. IT IS A SERIES CONCLUSION OF ALL THE STARS. I also hate these authors so much adjfkslad who hurt them tho ...

    1.) Illuminae 2.) Gemina “Every story needs its hero. And its villain. And its monster.” Hi, my name is Melanie, and I’m the only person in the book world that doesn’t love this series the same way everyone else does. Seriously, take this entire review with a grain of salt, because I am very much in the minority with my feelings. There is just always something stopping me from loving and being completely invested in this series. Illumi...

    “That is all I know how to be. Every story needs it’s villain. And it’s hero. And it’s monster.” Story Whoa, guys. This book. Phew. This book was a freakin roller coaster. Did I have several heart attack’s? Probably. Did I fall in love with (all of the) relationships and characters in here? Absolutely. This whole trilogy is not perfect, no book really is. But it’s a start and I think I’m not wrong when I say, that it’s a masterp...

    You can find the Full review and other reviews @ The book prescription“It is entirely possible to be alone in a crowded room. Your solitude only compounded by the faces around you. The presence of others serving only to remind you of how lonely you truly are.” Creativity, Creativity , Creativity! That is the one thought that I had in mind throughout the whole book, if not the whole series. I mean as readers we read a lot of books in the usual...
  • falling asleep reading
    so i reread this to see if my opinion has changed but nah sisters this book was awful!i’m simply disappointed :( this was boring, nothing happened until the last 150 pages and we didn’t even get a chance to feel anything for the new characters! the only thing i like or even know about asha is that she’s not white and that’s only noticeable because every other character IS white sigh i also hate how this series has so many FORCED heterosex...
