Before I begin, I want to say thank-you to Elyse for sending me the entire book series as well as the group We ♥ YA Books! I'm so happy I chose these novels to read and review! Oh and also note: I'm sorry this review took me so long to get up; school's just been taking up WAY too much of my time :( But alas, here it is:
So let me start the review off by saying:
Vindication is 100% the best ending EVER to this book series. I mean, all my questions were answered, the characters that were introduced and the main ones who I felt grew throughout the novel as well. One of the many qualities I admire most about Elyse's writing is that with only a few words, she can send SO many emotions through you - sadness, admiration, thrill, curiosity -- truly, it is never-ending and it makes the journey that these great characters take so much more exhilarating.
Another thing I adored in Vindication is that, I felt so close to the characters! When someone got affected, both emotionally and physically, I myself feel as if I'm with them, standing there and experiencing what they are - this is very unique in Elyse's writing - some YA books, I'm just reading, not feeling but this is an exception to that - trust me, you will love this novel, but first you must read the others!
Something else to note:
The relationship between all the characters are so unique depending on who they are between so it's like reading tons of stories within one great book. (Ellie, Michael, Chris, etc.) The different POV's of characters, no matter what anyone says, I LOVED this. It makes the story so much more in depth, I feel. Of course, Ellie and Christoper remain one of my fave YA couples EVERRRR ♥♥♥ ( Thanks for inventing them, Elyse. hehe)
The ONLY downside of this book is that, the beginning and the end (both I liked immensely) are so eventful but the middle isn't so much. I understand though, that the story needed to be developed, questions needed to be answered and the story needed to be closed, so it's okay.
SO in conclusion, I loved this book, reccoment it to all paranormal, YA, fantasy book lovers and give it 5 stars :) Thanks once again to Elyse! ♥
