T times I hate miscommunication lol wasn t something I was hoping to see when it came to their relationship Climax (Double Alchemy, development I was expecting closeness I guess and feel like theyeserved much in regards to the writing about it I Peace DeLeos Action Thriller Singles did like their characterevelopment separately a lot most of the times especially Abel took it up a notch in this one I really love how Claudia wrote Abel Roots and Blossoms down right from the beginning in Defy the Stars up until the end now in Defy the Fates I think hisevelopment throughout all three books was truly magnificent There s action and a lot of space travel so you won t be The Humanities, Higher Education, and Academic Freedom disappointed about that I think I like that there are some villainous characters present who make things personally but that there s also a story goingown in which it s about so much than just the characters It s about all humans throughout the galaxy and that Shakespeare definitely made it interesting Overall I felt like this was still a fun read I still love these characters so so much and there Areefinitely some amazing things present in this book It isn t the strong conclusion I hoped it BWWM (Interracial Romance BWWM African American Multicultural Romance) d be but I wouldefinitely recommend reading these books if you re into YA Sci Fi and aren t opposed to there being a lot of focus on the characters and their Seers Stone (Hidden Alchemy development That about sums up my feelings on the last two booksThis should ve remained a standalone The first book was so good And it all just bit theustThe lack of imagery is starkly apparent in the 2nd and 3rd books It was easy to overlook this in the first one but when the story focuses on several ifferent planets and we barely get a glimpse at them all OOFThe romance which began as a cute and healthy relationship uickly evolved into martyrdom and stupid miscommunication as the series continued Why None of that Teaching white South African literature in high school dragged on in the first book Everything came to a close I was happy with the ending The ending to this series was saccharine all too convenient and way too preachy Not a fanTo top it off this was so mindnumbingly boring I ended up skimming the last 70 pages or so when it became clear nothing was happening We started at A went to B and C then went all the way back to A and all I could think was holy shit whyidn t you just cut out B and C and just resolve A Ah but then we wouldn t have had another book Good old YA trilogy marketing ammiriteI highly recommend reading the first book and then pretending its seuels A Wish Your Heart Makes don t even exist unless you re convinced you ll love them based off their blurbs Regardless of how this series just failed harder than my math grades its first entry was not only fulfilling enough to stand on its own but it was a ton of fun The romance was really cute and the plot wasifferent and interesting Now I m left wondering why I kept reading after that horrid seue. World where anyone even a mech can be freeThe final battle between Earth and the colony planets is here and there's no lengths to which Earth won't go to preserve its omination over all humanity But together the universe's most advanced mech and its first human mech hybrid might have the power to change the galaxy for goo.
Books Overall good conclusion Although I appreciate the romance between the two main characters and the series as a whole I felt like this book was a repeat of the conflicts we ve already seen in the first two books like the two characters being separated once again or sacrificing their lives for the other once again As a result this book felt redundant and unneeded Some of the misunderstandings were also uncharacteristic considering all they ve been through together and I wish there was time spent on romance and tender moments instead This efinitely should have been a Loves Abuse Warrior Camp duology instead of a trilogy My local Barnes and Noble placed this out on the shelves early niceNow that the series is over I feel kind of letown that the third book of the trilogy wasn t as engaging or enjoyable as the first two I kind of suspected something like being a tad left Contemporary African literature down when I saw that it was thinner than the last two books I like my prose especially this book with its take on humanity and the futureWhat Iidn t like would probably be a better way to frame this review How easily everything gets wrapped up How lame Mansfield was in this one The lack of loveemotion not like I was looking for sex but you know it would have been nice to have Abel explore about love and or his feelings for Noemi instead of just statements and kissesWhile I enjoyed the series on a whole and I understand it is YA and that Claudia Gray is really one of the best SciFi writers for YA s out there I still think it wasn t as strong as the other two books in the series Maybe there will be a return to the world in the future Maybe there won t be All I know is that it s over and now I have to find another series that features a robot coming to terms with humanity and falling in love I fell in love SO hard with Abel and Noemi in book 1 as well as all the awesome space opera settings and the buildup of the story line Book 2 was also a really fun and fast paced read but already not As good as the first one My expectations were that book 3 would hopefully be a stellar and explosive conclusion to it all but in the end I can t say that book 3 was entirely what I had hoped for unfortunately and it fell a bit short for meLike some other readers stated as well I am of an opinion that a lot of the writing and happenings in this book felt repetitive and there were parts that were a but unnecessary even and therefore it sometimes felt like the plot was unstable and creaked on all sides Things are being rushed towards the end and could ve been better 120 Content Strategies for English Language Learners developed in my honest opinion I also really missed connection andevelopment with AbelNoemi and felt like it was a shame they were apart from one another so much That in combination with the miscommunication that was present S his last bargaining chip Alone in the universeBrought back from the brink of eath Noemi Vidal finds Abel has not only saved her life but he's made her into something else something Not uite mech yet not uite human any longer Noemi must find her place in a universe where she is utterly uniue all while trying to create
Claudia Gray is not my real name I didn't choose a pseudonym because my real name is unpleasant it isn't because I'd always dreamed of calling myself this I haven't or even because I'm hiding from the remnants of that international diamond smuggling cartel I smashed in 2003 Interpol has taken care of them In short I took a pseudonym for no real reason whatsoever Sometimes this is actual
