 My Review:

While I didn't hate this book as much as the others. I still had a lot of problems with it. But first lets go with what I liked.

I liked that we learned so much about how a lot of it happened somewhat and that they weren't the first people to have it.
I liked Stella and Mara's "friendship" and how Stella wouldn't always go with whatever she said.

Now what I didn't like was that almost everyone just went with whatever Mara said even though she was always the most clueless. All she ever cared about was Noah. She didn't care about trying to figure out what type of damage her ability could do, or what everyone else could do. She didn't even care about the experiments done one other people that Kell's did. All she ever cared or wanted was Noah and while some people might think that was super romantic I found it to be rather pointless in this situation.

Also if Noah's dad didn't want them to ever be together then why did he make certain things happen that would bring them together. Why did he leave Noah there alone with Mara, if he really didn't want them together shouldn't he have forced Noah to leave with him.

What was Lukumi problem throughout the whole thing and why didn't he talk to them all in person and try to explain better why he did certain things. I got that he had tried to change certain things through his letter he wrote to Mara but still he should have known better then to make certain other things happen or try to control them.

Were the last 20 pages even really needed? I didn't care about that, we knew what choice they would make because they had made it before and will continue to make it until they do eventually die.
