My personal Rating-
Hmm. I’m trying to gather my thoughts about my second reading of this trilogy and all I’m coming up with is that it wasn’t my favorite ending, but it did end decently. I think I would have liked it to be a little more drawn out and more details about what happened in the last chapter and epilogue. But at the same time, I like the impression that Hana and everybody’s story isn’t over just because the reader is done with the book. The ending isn’t opened, but it isn’t quite closed either. 
I definitely do appreciate that while there was a war going on and fighting, there wasn’t unnecessary gore and fighting details within those parts. 
I’m glad how the love triangle ended up, even if Hana wasn’t sure who to pick until the end of the story.
Overall, this series is a good one for fans of dystopian time periods and rebellion plots. I wouldn’t say this is my favorite of this genre, but I did enjoy this trilogy. 

See y’all on Friday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
