Well, here we are. We’re here, at the ending of yet, another series.
This book achieved so much. It wasn’t the best book I’ve ever read, though not the worst.
Then again, I hated the first book (The 5th Wave) and was ok with the second book (The Infinite Wave) and then, The Last Star blew my mind.
Tears, literally falling from my eyes, stinging my pale cheeks.Black mascara, falling, and it’s falling deep.
The ending stunned me. I loved Nugget, Zombie, Ringer, Cassie, and most of all, Evan.
Ok, I must tell you, I’m a wimp when it comes to endings of books. Especially of those good books. The whole series might’ve not been perfect, though it ended up OK.
To be honest, I cried at the end of The Darkest Minds trilogy for no apparent reason, and my reasoning was to my best friend IT JUST ENDED, LIKE THAT! Nope, I’m not kidding.
But, I’m not here to weep about The Darkest Minds, I’m here to weep for Cassie Sullivan and Evan Walker. God, what a couple they were. I adored them from the moment I read their names.
And then, Rick Yancey destroyed my heart by doing this to me. KILLING THEM BOTH?
Like, making Cassie kill Evan? I cringed and cried so hard at that moment. I could barely take it.
I love gore and all, though I hate when this happens! Like Marie Lu, Rick Yancey destroyed me.
Though truly, I hated only 1 book of this series. The rest was OK. Not the best, though OK.
End of Spoilers
For this book, I think it earns 4/5 stars. Not too shabby.
