Series: #3 of Never Never
Silas and Charlie don’t remember anything but their past selves have set them on a mission to reveal the truth once and for all.
Adrenaline, tension, secrets–everything was built up so well on the last two books that this came out… eh. It did no justice to everything we’ve been through. It was kind of a let down.
I expected for everything to be revealed, everything to become undone and an ending perfectly tied in a beautiful bow but it didn’t. It was… disappointing. By the half of the book, I was just reading with a half-hope that there would be a solid, reasonable explanation on what’s happening to Silas and Charlie (besides the family drama). However, disappointment slowly crept into me as I devoured every page until it ended.
Don’t get me wrong, I liked how their memories returned (which was bound to happen), and the epilogue, I think, was cleverly done. I just didn’t like the reason why it happened. I think the premise of Silas and Charlie was too great to have such an unoriginal, even cringey, reason. There were other parts that were left unanswered as well (like the flashback Charlie had in book 1) and I felt Charlie’s abduction was swept under the rug for more romantic scenes (which I also found lacking in comparison to their sweet, adorable scenes in book 1). Also, what does Never Never mean? And how did it become special to the two of them?
I like the end but I think what made it disappointing was how it built up so well in the last two books only to get such an ending.
Picking up this series though was not disappointing and I enjoyed the brief exhilaration it gave.
