Our review: This amazing series is unique for many reasons, not the least of which is that it is, essentially, one story told from different points of view over three books. That Hardin accomplishes this with little to no overlap or redundancy and with such fresh perspective in each book is fabulous. In the third and final book of the trilogy, the spotlight shifts to Gerry, who thus far has been a somewhat prickly and not-quite-likable character. She spends much of the first part of the book in a mysterious coma, and through her dream-like mental wanderings, we learn about her troubling past and are given hints into what--or who--is pursuing her in the present.
The imagery and symbolism Hardin employs during Gerry's dreams is vivid and haunting. I was captivated by the unexpected love story; it's tender, enticing and sensual.
While the entire book was well-written, with smooth flow and engaging rhythm, my favorite scene was the flight. The research that went into this part was evident, and in many ways, it was a pivotal point in the story.
What gave this book the happiest of endings is Hardin's revelation that she is not finished with the characters; this trilogy may be ending, but the story goes on.
