Story: I have to be honest. There are parts of me that feel like he only wrote this story because the fans demanded it. I feel like he checked out of the story after the last book. However, I could be wrong. I’m not saying this isn’t a good book. Riggs is a wonderful writer. It just seems that it had a much slower pace than the first three books. Maybe that’s the point. They have a breather before chaos happens again.
Characters: Our little gang of peculiars seem a little jaded in this book. I get that they have been through a lot, but they seem a bit harsher around the edges this time around.
Narration: Amazing as always.
Final Thoughts: I did enjoy this book very much. It was interesting to find out what happened after the end of the third book. It just seems a bit slower than the first three. Then again, if I’m being honest, the first book was a little slow too. I do like a good slow burn. I just wasn’t prepared for it.
