journey that Jeremy has taken.
Excellent writing and a real page turner.
This premise lends itself beautifully to the story at hand, as Staub infuses new blood (if you'll pardon the expression) into a series that could easily have drifted into the ordinary. Rather, the ten year gap in time coupled with the shift in focus takes the story in exciting and unexpected new directions. It also allows the author to examine the after-effects of the bloodshed, deception and dysfunction that punctuated the events of the first two books--a penetrating perspective that should give readers pause to consider the consequences of real-world situations even as they strive furiously to assemble the pieces of Staub's intricately crafted puzzle.
With this book, Staub offers an exceptional conclusion to a well-executed and often unpredictable trilogy. She methodically brings the story full circle, merging past and present in a terrifying series of events that reminds us that one person's happy ending often comes at the expense of somebody else's. As unsettling a truth as this may be, it's one that needs to be reckoned with. Because if it's not, there just may be Hell to Pay...
