So, I put off reading this book for a while. I read THE DARKEST MINDS back in April, and the ending just kind of put me off the rest of the series. I liked it, but I felt that it could have been the end, and that the rest of the series wasn’t really necessary. It was a pretty satisfying (if emotional) end to a wonderful book.
I regret waiting so long. While it did take me about 50 or 60 pages to really submerge myself in the world again and really get into the book, I absolutely loved it. I felt that it was a great follow-up to THE DARKEST MINDS, and I really wish I hadn’t put it off for so long. I also wish the 3rd and final book in this trilogy came out sooner. Thankfully, I only have to wait a few more weeks.
I gave NEVER FADE by Alexandra Bracken 5 out of 5 stars.
