Wow. All I can say is wow. This book was so good and I had an absolutely wonderful time reading it. I binged this series over the course of about a week and I can firmly say that after finishing this trilogy it has cemented itself as one of my favorites of all time.

When I started this book, it was pretty late in the evening. I only planned to read about 100 pages before going to bed. The next thing I knew, I had finished the entirety of this 550+ page book in one sitting and it was now 2 am. And I wouldn't have changed a thing.

So much happened in this book and I don't have the time or space to discuss it all. Marissa Meyer truly knew how to build the tension throughout the trilogy so that this final book was explosive. So many things happened that I expected but there were also a lot of things that happened that I was not expecting. I was truly blown away by this book.

We start off with high-tension right at the beginning. There is no significant change in time between the end of the second book and the start of this book so I felt that I was right back in the story and the action. Since the first two books had been building tension and upping the stakes, the tension was quite high at the beginning of this book. I felt that, although there were less high-action scenes in this book until the end, the book was definitely not boring or slow paced at all because the tension was so high.

The characters were wonderful, again. There were a few moments with different characters that I was so excited for and finally happened. That being said, I do think the focus on the character development wasn't as strong as the first two books. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, though, because I felt that I had a good connection to the characters from the first two books. I also just want more of these characters! I want novellas and stories about them just living their lives after this trilogy's events.

It's hard for me to succinctly put my love for this book into a review. I just had so much fun with this trilogy that I don't have any bad things to say about it. I'll just end with this: I absolutely adored this series and I'm so glad that I finally read it. I highly recommend it to everyone who likes science-fiction, enemies to lovers tropes, and flawed superheros.

Thanks for reading!
