I have very emotional feelings about this book! Specifically the relationship between Beck and Riley, and the ending! I literally just finished the book and ranted to my boyfriend (it included a lot of swearing and well swearing). Safe to say, I'm not a fan of the ending. But that's not, just to clarify, because it's crap. It's because it's a cliffhanger and I don't like where it is heading.
The book itself was actually kind of intense during a lot of the chapters due to what Riley is going through with her dad, Heaven, Hell, Beck, Mort, Ozy, Stewart and everyone else. She's really having a tough time, and everything seems to be piling on top of her. Despite this, it was an amazing story. As a lot went on in the book I thought I'd get confused, but everything was linked. I still hate Ori, and always will. Just like I still hate Simon, and always will.
Beck, why must you be so stubborn! Okay, seriously. Read these books and I promise you, you'll fall in love with Beck. Not that you should let your partner catch onto this ;) (if mine found out I was in love with another fictional character ;) He might stop buying me books!)
But basically Beck goes through a very tough time also and unfortunately because he is so damn stubborn this tears him and Riley apart. Again. Just! As they sorted everything.
No spoilers or anything in this review, so I can't go into any more detail, despite the fact that I'd love to.
The plot is gripping and intense. The characters are well thought out, and are only growing with each novel. The ending, I'm still not pleased, but it was great none the less.
