The Fallen World series was always one of my favourites. It's the first trilogy that I've ever read about that featured sicknesses in a plague epidemic sort of way. I was very surprised with the end because this trilogy just started off so good for the first two books, and then this ending to the trilogy was really unenjoyable.
This was so repetitive and boring compared to the other books from this series. It was short in length, but I felt like I was reading forever, the same thing over and over again. This author did a bad job of starting off from where the second book left off. It's been almost a year since I've read the sequel, and wouldn't it have been nice for a little event-character recap? Most authors do a great job with completing this during the first or second chapter of sequels or so on in the series, but this... almost nothing. I seriously forgot who was who and what was going on.
The Plot: ... I found this to be seriously boring. Nothing was happening three-quarters of the time until the end. I mean, things were happening, but they were repetitive just like the previous books. This was a messed up book, I truthfully have to say. I didn't enjoy it, and I'm really sad that I didn't. And what, the author just adds in some dumb depressing road trip? Umm, awkward...
The Characters- Kaelyn- I always liked this protagonist from the beginning. In this book, she was stupid and didn't know what she was supposed to feel and be doing. Someone died, someone she loves, and she doesn't cry or have feelings? Next thing you know she's moving onto the other guy, the other half of the love triangle without even blinking an eye. WTF.
This is poor *SPOILERSPOILERGAV's* reaction to this bitch's behaviour.
Gav- Poor guy. Kaelyn doesn't give him the cure and hogs it all to herself, waiting for someone to be "really sick." Ugh, that beotch.
Leo- No, no, just get out. I don't like you. Like why does he have to hog Kaelyn. He was probably waiting for Gav to ... so he can take the girl he always have loved. It's just so stupid and unfair and breaks my heart when thinking about Kaelyn's and Leo's stupid behaviour and how they really ruined this book.
Side Characters- I didn't see any importance in them at all. They were just there, and poof! they were gone. I don't feel much in the mood to talk about these characters, because they were the absolute freakin' problem.
The only good aspect of this book was the ending. The trilogy is done, and it was ended correctly and the way it's supposed to. A hideous book, with a great ending. And Kaelyn?
