In the After Light by Alexandra Bracken
The Darkest Minds Never Fade In the After Light
In the After Light is the third and final book in Alexandra Brackens amazing Darkest Minds Trilogy, if you have not read The Darkest Minds and Never Fade please click out of this review now and get your hands on a copy ASAP these books are amazing and one of the best “dystopian” YA series that have been released in a long time.
This book was everything I could have wanted with a final book and more, we had action, suspense, heartbreak and angst. I have to admit I was nervous going into this book because book one and two were so amazing I was worried this book wouldn’t live up to the hype. I shouldn’t have worried because where many final books have failed this book delivered everything I wanted and more.
I was beyond happy when Zu reappeared in this book and when she finally spoke I burst out crying. This scene was one of my favourite scenes from the entire series. It was beautifully written, moving and completely unexpected, it made me fall head over heels in love with Zu all over again.
I loved the relationship between Chubs and Vida they bounce of each other so well and the way Liam and Ruby find out about them “hooking up” was hilarious and had me crying with laughter.
Unfortunately Ruby’s hero complex really got on my nerves in this book, I just wanted to shake her and tell her to get it together, stop pushing people away and TALK TO SOMEONE! Especially Liam. Ruby and Liam…..Arrrgg I spent the majority of this book wanting to bang their heads together. Poor Liam I felt like he really got all the crap in this book, his relationship with Ruby was going downhill along with his relationship with Cole and then when Cole died I honestly thought Liam was going to go off the rails.
My only issue with this book was that the characters spent a lot of time in the same place and that made the plot slow during the middle of the book.
Alexandra Bracken did an amazing job writing this book, the story line is so well developed and she manages to make this story come full circle seamlessly. I loved how Ruby started her story in Thurmond and ended her story in Thurmond to me this was the perfect way to end this series.
Fantastic Story. Fantastic Characters. Fantastic Series. Fantastic Ending. Flawless.
