Finale turned out to be better than I had expected. I was originally going to give it a 4 but decided to give it a 5 after reading the ending. This book was packed full of action, secrets and surprises. Some characters turned out to be better or worse than originally thought, and at the end of the battle we lose many, but only one important character. I wanted to throw my kobo into a wall I was so mad that the author killed off one of the main characters I've come to really like over the series.
This book didn't keep me very interested in the beginning, but I kept reading since I HAD to find out what would happen to my precious characters, since I've been with them since book one. By about halfway through, I started getting really wound up in the story and by the time I reached the last few chapters I was swept right up in the whirlwind of events and couldn't put the book down until I finished it. There was also a point somewhere near the middle of the book where I wanted to punch Patch in the face, but that quickly ended when I found out the truth about what was happening. THANK GOD, 'cause someone was gonna lose a limb! Nora was her usual *dumb* self, but she wasn't as bad as she has been in past books, but that could just be me. There were definite points where I was all ARE YOU SERIOUS?! OF COURSE IT'S A ****ING TRAP! Thankfully, there were only a few of those so it didn't change my love of these books.
I have to say, it's a pretty good conclusion to the end of these books. It was just...so perfect. Made me cry a little inside...but still perfect. Especially the very end right before the epilogue, which was the most romantic part in the whole book! It blew my expectations out of the water and made me love this series even more. If your a Hush, Hush fan, you'll definitely need to read Finale!
