    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Let me start off by saying I loved this series I was cheering for Vi and Jag since the first book It was an interesting concept and I loved the pacing of the first book, the second book not as much and this oneugh, I couldn t wait for it to be over It was so boring I slogged through this book in a day but it was so hard and there was some skimming involved.Through the whole series we have been learning about kids with special powers voice, mind control etc and how the Districts needed t Let me start off by saying I loved this series I was cheering for Vi and Jag since the first book It was an interesting concept and I loved the pacing of the first book, the second book not as much and this oneugh, I couldn t wait for it to be over It was so boring I slogged through this book in a day but it was so hard and there was some skimming involved.Through the whole series we have been learning about kids with special powers voice, mind control etc and how the Districts needed their power to keep everyone asleep but a resistance formed to fight back What exactly did those powers amount too Why was Vi so important You re guess is as good as mine The Districts were basically falling apart from the inside Thane really wasn t a bad person, he ended up saving Jag a whole bunch of times and helping the resistance in the end Hightower went down without too much of a fight, along with the guy who came after him The whole story that should have culminated in a BOOM at the end went boom instead.While I spent most of the book wishing the action would just get on with it already and was to the point of bored tears in others when I got to the end I went HUH Really, that s how you re going to end the series It wasn t and end The Districts are crippled, a whole crap load of resistance members are dead and it basically ends by saying we ll continue the fight but it will take a while Yeah,duh That s what the whole series was about and we get almost no resolution in my opinion.Speaking of the tons of people who died It was reminiscent of the Deathly Hallows when people just started dying left and right for no apparent reason besides the fact that the author owned the characters and could kill them whenever she saw fit It didn t really bother me since I didn t really care who lived or died at that point however, I think if Jag or Vi died I might have been a tadupset but looking back on it probably not that much The other thing that struck me was the fact that both Jag and Zenn the story being written in both of their view points said Vi was bad at making decisions Not from what I could see, she stuck by her decisions and even beat the crap out of people to prove a point Her powers were the most useful out of the bunch The character who had a hard time making decisions was Zenn She didn t choose you move on But hey I guess we really didn t have to worry about that because what better way to end a love triangle than by killing off one of the members But don t worry now Zenn is free because all he ever wanted was freedom Excuse me for a moment while I shake my computer screen in frustration and scream How cliche freedom through death,ugh.Besides the slow pace and the abundance of pointless death, I have to say that I was disappointed when the bad guys went down so easily More time was spent on how Jag didn t have any feelings for Indy any so Vi shouldn t worry and how Zenn was so sorry for everything he d done instead of how Hightower met his end Fine, so Gunn killed him and the story wasn t written in his voice but I thought the whole point of the book was centered around the resistance s defeat of the Districts Hightowers death felt like a footnote There was a lot of explaining in the book, a lot of explaining and not nearly enough action from what I thought would be the big battle I was waiting for it that was what kept me turning the pages but instead I got a fizzle Talk about disappointing.I think that word best summarizes the whole experience of reading this book disappointing

    I felt like this whole series was a waste of my time but I wanted to finish it because I needed to know how it ended, not because I enjoyed reading it It was a frustrating book and the change between narrators made me lose interest.

    The disappointing sequel to a dissappointing sequel The same problems apply here as they did when it comes to the previous books The characters are flat, their actions and feelings inexplicable and incomprehensible In all fairness, the author has improved on that a little by giving Zennpersonality and his inner conflict in his POV made it possible to empathise with the characterHowever, that was not the case for Jag the other POV character in this book much like in Possession The disappointing sequel to a dissappointing sequel The same problems apply here as they did when it comes to the previous books The characters are flat, their actions and feelings inexplicable and incomprehensible In all fairness, the author has improved on that a little by giving Zennpersonality and his inner conflict in his POV made it possible to empathise with the characterHowever, that was not the case for Jag the other POV character in this book much like in Possession he remained bland, boring and in those rare moments when he wasn t that he was a total dick It raised to question why anyone would follow him as leader there was zero charisma and his actions of getting caught all the time, severely misjudging situations and losing people didn t really inspire any confidence in his leadership skills Not in me anyway.Obviously an opportunity was missed with this book yet again I was waiting since the first book for the author to give the reader some insight into the early days of the resistance and specifically Jag s and Zenn s previous friendship But all we ever got was oh we used to be best friends but now I hate that bastard Hardly satisfying.Other things that were absolutely frustrating bringing in Saffadiene as a new love interest for Zenn because why Because nobody can end up single and betrayed and unhappy for it would leave a stain on the favoured couple who gets to be happy at somebody else s expense It happens all the bloody time in real life Vi s parents and the family reunion So Vi s father is an abusive turncoat but that s all forgiven because he saved Jag s life once or something He also killed his other daughter but yeah we re not talking about that any Further in Possession it was mentioned time and again how unhappy, bitter and hostile Vi s mother was because of her husband abandoning her and because of Gavin s death but now in Abandon, Laurel and Thane are working together smoothly and nothing is ever mentioned on that matter again There are even group hugs and Jag comments to Vi on how her parents love each other What happened When How Why There s no answer given How did Vi s mother end up running a resistance cell in a completely different city than their home town in a matter of a few months It is mentioned that children in Freedom take genetics classes from an early age Gunn and Raine are seventeen when she challenges him to ask her which organism belongs to what phyllum Gunn replies he hasn t taken biology yet a Since when is matching an organism to a phyllum any kind of special knowledge or talent you can impress people with after you ve attended 5th grade b How can you take genetics courses for years without knowing the basics of biology Characters introduced in Surrender were completely abandoned perhaps that inspired the title to this final installment sure we hear their names mentioned once in a while but that was really not necessary They contributed nothing whatsoever to the story The ending was rushed and the author failed again at expressing things clearly and in an organised fashion, there was too much going on What happened to Indy I understand there was a tie in novella spent on that character and the first half of this book was about Jag s conflicted feelings for her and about how he lost her brother Now the brother re appeared at the 11th hour but nobody thought about looking for his sister once in Freedom Was she slated Is she dead Who knows Who cares Obviously not the author Redeeming factor Zenn died It s another clich but not as bad as if Zenn, Saffadiene, Vi and Jag were merrily double dating now So that s a relief.Even if I was frustrated with this book series and I certainly won t lose any sleep over it after I close this review In my eyes Vi made the wrong choice

    howls the turmoil that is this book I want to cry myself to sleep now Edit Real review time.The review is also posted at The Bawdy Book Blog.If there was ever an epic conclusion to a dystopian series, you re looking at it right here I was a heap of a sobbing mess when it was over and I may never recover This post may contain spoilers from the first two books Stay tuned for the blog tour post going live tomorrow Raine is in Freedom under the control of her father Gunner is with the rebe howls the turmoil that is this book I want to cry myself to sleep now Edit Real review time.The review is also posted at The Bawdy Book Blog.If there was ever an epic conclusion to a dystopian series, you re looking at it right here I was a heap of a sobbing mess when it was over and I may never recover This post may contain spoilers from the first two books Stay tuned for the blog tour post going live tomorrow Raine is in Freedom under the control of her father Gunner is with the rebels Vi, Zenn and Jag are also with the rebels and trying to devise a way to bring down Freedom and the Association while saving Raine, Cannon and the rest of the rebels and citizens who are not with the Association.Abandon is fast paced and quick in a don t blink or you ll miss it kind of way We re totally immersed in the story now, there s no turning back Traitors have been outed,questions are asked of our favorite characters, especially Zenn, who struggles internally with what he thinks is right Zenn and Jag are in the forefront now, leading a rebellion hell bent on bringing down an entire government.I actually struggled with this a little bit Where are the freaking adults already Kids are not able to do this by themselves.Anyway, that question does get answered, but I was never fully satisfied with it.Zenn s internal struggles are very front and center in Abandon This novel isabout what he is going to do than anything else The Association wants him bad He has power, they need power But he has this urge to do what he thinks is right Only, what is that exactly I loved his struggle, and I also loved that as an insider, he had tips Insider Tip 1 Always do what the boss says This is how you gain trust.Insider Tip 7 Suspect everyone Trust no one When things go wrong, assume someone has tipped off the enemy.So as an insider, who is he really fighting for Elana Johnson left me guessing which side he was playing for up until the end.Vi and Jag areinteresting in Abandon Vi has gained back what she lost, and she s learning she has new powers, but at what cost to herself Jag is resolving how to deal with this new side of her, and oh yeah, he also feelsbetrayed by his best friend Zenn than ever I think Jag has expectations of other people that are way too high often times And frankly, he pissed me off a lot, but in a good way, because I know Johnson meant for him to piss me off I forgive you, Jag.The love triangle does get resolved, but it left me gnashing my teeth in frustration and sadness, mostly sadness, because the outcome was shocking and not what I would have thought would happen Johnson, you are a brave woman.Let s talk the ending This one thing happened and I sobbed hard I mean, hard I can t believe it happened and I was a big ol mess at the end The ending is the entire point to this whole trilogy how far will someone go to fight for freedom, for the ability to choose their own meals, their own mates, their own ways to live I know I would do anything for the ability to choose for myself.Overall, I think Abandon is a fantastic conclusion to the series, and Elana Johnson leaves room forbooks, with the way it wraps up All the shiny tech was fascinating and I loved the determination of the characters to fight for choice That s my kinda book

    The Possession series has been an interesting one from the beginning Special powers Mind wiping Rebellion Since I first read Possession, I feel in love with this world, and all of its unique qualities and quirks Abandon is no different.One element that I have loved hated about this series is the constant change of POVs This time around, we are taken into the minds of Jag and Zenn While both characters have enough personality to carry Abandon easily, I found myself wanting to The Possession series has been an interesting one from the beginning Special powers Mind wiping Rebellion Since I first read Possession, I feel in love with this world, and all of its unique qualities and quirks Abandon is no different.One element that I have loved hated about this series is the constant change of POVs This time around, we are taken into the minds of Jag and Zenn While both characters have enough personality to carry Abandon easily, I found myself wanting to get back to Vi s POV again Maybe it is the lack of the female POV that I miss, or maybe just her wit and spunk Honestly, I don t know Whatever it is, I miss it.As you may know, the Possession series also carries a pretty heavy love triangle Personally, I like both boys, but have always favored Zenn for one reason or another With Abandon, I found myself rooting again for Zenn It isn t that I don t like Jag I do But there is something about Zenn Maybe it is the underdog effect Who knows Abandon wraps up the love triangle in a completely different way than what I was expecting Do I like it Yes and no Is it kinda heartbreaking Absolutely.What about our other characters Gunner and Raine Have no fear Abandon has not forgotten them Gunner and Raine play a decent part in Abandon However, in a similar fashion to Surrender, they arein the background After three books, if I had to voice one major complaint about the series, it is the POV main character swaps In Possession, Vi, Jag, and Zenn were the focus In Surrender, it was Gunner and Raine With Abandon, it is back to Vi, Jag, and Zenn While I love having all these characters, it does feel a little overhelming sometimes having to keep up with so many.Final Verdict I have loved this series since the beginning due to its unique qualities Abandon fell in line pretty much how I expected it to, with plenty of twists added in that I did not expect Especially in regards to the romance All in all, a solid read that was fast paced and a great addition to the series.Will there beAbandon wraps up nicely, but honestly, I am a little confused For the longest time, I have been under the impression that the Possession series is a trilogy However, the ending was a little bitopen than I had expected Does that mean there will beMaybe I guess I will have to wait and see

    Terrible, boring, muddy ending of a mediocre series Tons of characters are quickly introduced and killed The characters travel through so many cities, with so many new names to learn, that it becomes tedious One of the biggest problems in this book is where the author kills off a major villain, at the hands of a major character, but she doesn t write that scene Instead, she chose to write it as something another character was told in passing Really So in so, the evil, unstoppable villain i Terrible, boring, muddy ending of a mediocre series Tons of characters are quickly introduced and killed The characters travel through so many cities, with so many new names to learn, that it becomes tedious One of the biggest problems in this book is where the author kills off a major villain, at the hands of a major character, but she doesn t write that scene Instead, she chose to write it as something another character was told in passing Really So in so, the evil, unstoppable villain in the last book is killed and you think it s not worth writing about No, but please write every detail of Zenn s hoverboard trip to deliver a message.Jag also became extremely unlikable in this book, and acted power hungry and arrogant We never got closure on Gunner Raine s story either, along with that prophetic vision thing

    Possible plot hole idea Please comment What has this woman done When I got to the ending where the big thing happens Yeah, THAT thing You know what I mean if you ve read it I felt like the author reached a hand down my throat and ripped my heart out from there Of course that was the ending to expect It was a great ending, but there will always be that part of me that wished it ended a tiny bit differently And I know how it could have happened Do NOT read ahead if you haven Possible plot hole idea Please comment What has this woman done When I got to the ending where the big thing happens Yeah, THAT thing You know what I mean if you ve read it I felt like the author reached a hand down my throat and ripped my heart out from there Of course that was the ending to expect It was a great ending, but there will always be that part of me that wished it ended a tiny bit differently And I know how it could have happened Do NOT read ahead if you haven t finished reading the book yet Well, remember the transporter rings that Zenn helped to make He thought about the one he had in his pocket when he was at the meeting with all of the Directors and General Darke He knew that he could have just left then if he wanted to, but he didn t Why couldn t he have used that transporter ring when he was trying to protect Vi near the ending He could have just transported the two of them back to the Rise where he wae trying to get her He wouldn t have taken as many hits in the attack, and he would have survived I still understand why the author chose for him to die, though It made astriking ending, and showed Zenn s real acceptance and letting go of Vi It was a great and memorable ending, but it still hurt, of course I ll never forget the possibilities that could have come from Zenn and Saffediene s relationship As for the rest of the book, it was fantastic I had no complaints, and am quite satisfied with how things have progressed throughout the series I truely am sad to see its ending, but I m still glad to have know the story I won t forget it Afterthought What if the Resistance didn t actually end What of Darke actually did win and brainwashed everyone into believing that they won Some of the characters that died could actually be alive and simply brainwashed with the rest I can imagine all of the characters waiting to take on a new identity in the brainwashed, functioning society that Darke could have maintained I surely wouldn t want that to be true, but there isn t much of a way for us to REALLY know
