Where do I even begin with this book? I guess I have a love-hate relationship with it. Veronica’s writing is phenomenal but this book literally made me cry for days when I first read it – it still makes me cry – and I really wasn’t sure how long it was appropriate to mourn a fictional character.

Life outside of the city is definitely different in the Bureau but I always imagined it how America is now – with a lot more ruins, of course – and I absolutely loved how detailed everything was. You could tell that Veronica had thought out the side characters meticulously, giving each their own personality that you don’t normally find when a character is only mentioned on one page.

The ending was something that I’m not sure I agree with. I understand why she ended it the way that she did – it just seemed like the right thing to do with how said character was in the previous books – but it still made me feel like a part of myself died with the story. I know that it’ll continue to live on as long as I cherish the story though, I just wish things had turned out differently.
