My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This review is going to be short because if I attempted at explaining what happens in this book, I’d trigger at least a thousand spoilers.
What I’m going to say is that I enjoyed it, but it didn’t reach my expectations. I’d figured a much different story. Although some surprises were nice, like Brie’s relationship with a certain someone I will not name not to spoil, the story got crazier and crazier, until it was just too much.
It wasn’t, anyway, as crazy as “This Isn’t Over, Baby.” So there’s that. I just couldn’t connect with Brie, even though I liked her character. I felt like she didn’t care about certain characters as much as I’d though she would, and she bonded with others way too fast, IMO, diminishing the strength of such relationships.
I fell in love with “This Is War, Baby” because of the incredible love story between Baylee and War, because it was clear who she was meant to be, and because all in all War was an incredible, unique character. Here I felt like even the main H wasn’t as deeply portrayed ad War had been, and even though I liked him, I didn’t love him and didn’t care that much about what happened to him or Brie.
Will I keep reading this series? Maybe. The cliffhanger in the end got me a bit irritated and curious, but I’m not that sure I’m interested in knowing what happens to these characters. If the crazy extremeness was refreshing in the first books, I’m discovering it’s not exactly my jam.
