In the fourth and final installment, everything is on the line. Merrick's life is in the balance and Lily is their only hope. Ellie and her new powers are miraculous, but also problematic; if she's with the bunker family, they won't be able to sense when the Lighters are there. There are many new members to the bunker and sparks will fly, and with the food shortage, they will all have plenty to deal with. Miguel is intrigued with Rylee, her past and her spunk. Ryan and Elli are barely scratching the surface of their relationship. Cain and Lillian will have to deal with Daniel, who has no qualms about showing his true feelings for her. And Sherry and Merrick…what will happen to this happenstance family who have worked so hard to come together? Can they all survive? Can they all withstand the new enemy that is right outside their door? Can they beat the Lighters, once and for all…
How is it possible to love a series of books when you know you are reading the last book? Well, Shelly Crane is the master of it! I was shocked and very surprised when I received this ARC from Shelly. I want to thank Shelly Crane VERY MUCH!!
Best part: I thought long and hard about this because it was just so tough to pick my favorite part. So, the best part of this book is the characters, ALL OF THEM! Each is unique to the story, each has a special place in the series and you will never forget any of them nor their journeys through the series. Could I pick a favorite and say they were the only one to make the story? I could not because with one there would not be the others. Something that I do love in this series is Lily. That little girl is so sweet! Another is, Sherry and Merrick. They are truly a perfect couple and I love their interactions. Along with that, I have a soft place for those who protect their families. I could go on and on about each one of the characters but what fun would that be when you read the series.
Not so great: The truly worst part of this book is ............ IT'S THE LAST BOOK! How am I going to be able to survive?!?!?!?!?! It is okay though, Shelly Crane has more books coming out soon!! On top of that, now that I have all the books I can reread the whole series whenever I want!
This series is an amazing roller coaster of emotions and worth every word of the page!
This book will be released in September 2012
