Janie thought she knew what her future held. And she thought she'd made her peace with it. But she can't handle dragging Cabel down with her.
She knows he will stay with her, despite what she sees in his dreams. He's amazing. And she's a train wreck. Janie sees only one way to give him the life he deserves--she has to disappear. And it's going to kill them both.
Then a stranger enters her life--and everything unravels. The future Janie once faced now has an ominous twist, and her choices are more dire than she'd ever thought possible. She alone must decide between the lesser of two evils. And time is running out...
He reaches toward her, his fingers black and bloody, his eyes deranged, unblinking. Janie is paralyzed. His cold hands reach around her neck, squeezing tight, tighter, until Janie has no breath left. She's unable to move, unable to think. As his grasp tightens further around Janie's neck, his face turns sickly alabaster. He strains harder and begins to shake.
Janie is dying.
She has no fight left in her.
So, this was probably not the best choice of books for me this past day or so, as I've been really down, but I really wanted to finish the series and was happy to finally grab this book from the library this past week. So, I read it. And loved it. And really wanted to cry when it was over. The series has been incredible and I've loved Janie--she's a very real, very vivid character and I just couldn't get enough. This last book was very emotional for her, and very internal. (Also, I should note, she's not in high school, either, which for *some* agents means it's not YA, and yet it's been sold as such. I'm just saying... :) There were a few problems I had, mainly that I didn't realized Janie hadn't figured everything out while making her decision already. I mean, I kind of understood what had happened to her father from the start and assumed Janie had also, so I was shocked to find at the end she still hadn't fit all the pieces together. That kind of bothered me, because it was SO obvious. Also, her swings back and forth in terms of her decision were kind of abrupt, especially at the end. I think it could have used some more time and thought. But, overall, this has been a great series. High recommended!
