Reviews for Ruin and Rising
Great conclusion to a wonderful trilogy
Absolutely amazing finish to the trilogy! Truly everything I hoped for. Rich, fresh story with twists and full of characters you'll absolutely love. Especially the minor characters are so well developed - from religion driven, to orphans, to nerdy geeks, to the gay couple, to traumatized victims etc. All portrayed really well within their own personalities and charisma. The main characters are of course even more complex, with flaws and weaknesses included, which a lot of YA books sometimes just kind of avoids or forgets about.
Hats off to the author, amazing imagination and if this isn't made into a well-made high budget movie trilogy it truly is a missed opportunity for the movie studios.
Ow and last but not least - the book is funny! It is full of witty dialogues, jokes made by the characters, all while avoiding cliches.. fabulous! by Klemen20under review
