The Last Star // Review


There’s always that sense of anticipation when you start reading the final book in the series. That feeling of “is this book going to be the best thing ever?” or “is this going to entirely ruin the whole series?” It’s kind of scary, opening up that book and reading. And sometimes, often, the book is fantastic – the author has done an incredible job and you’re in awe.

Other times? You’re left a little confused and, well, kind of underwhelmed.

Sadly, that was the case with The Last Star, the final book in The 5th Wave trilogy.

Review: The 5th Wave (The 5th Wave #1)

The 5th Wave

The 1st Wave took out half a million people.

The 2nd Wave put that number to shame.

The 3rd Wave lasted a little longer, twelve weeks… four billion dead.

In the 4th Wave, you can’t trust that people are still people.

And the 5th Wave? No one knows. But it’s coming.

On a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs. Runs from the beings that only look human, who have scattered Earth’s last survivors.

To stay alone is to stay alive, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan may be her only hope.

The result of a trip to Waterstones today were three new books.

Firstly, Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas.

Crown of Midnight - UK

Eighteen-year-old Celaena Sardothien is bold, daring and beautiful – the perfect seductress and the greatest assassin her world has ever known. But though she won the King’s contest and became his champion, Celaena has been granted neither her liberty nor the freedom to follow her heart. The slavery of the suffocating salt mines of Endovier that scarred her past is nothing compared to a life bound to her darkest enemy, a king whose rule is so dark and evil it is near impossible to defy. Celaena faces a choice that is tearing her heart to pieces: kill in cold blood for a man she hates, or risk sentencing those she loves to death. Celaena must decide what she will fight for: survival, love or the future of a kingdom. Because an assassin cannot have it all . . . And trying to may just destroy her.

This is the second book in the Throne of Glass series. I was under the impression that this book didn’t come out until the 27th August, but it was pretty much the first thing I saw in the YA section and so I got just a bit excited. I really enjoyed the first book in the series, and I cannot wait to continue reading it.
