There is a fourth book?!?!
I started the book thinking that it will be the third and last one in the series, and I was actually excited about it, because the first two were pretty decent and entertaining (see my review of the first two books).
Well, this third book is also pretty entertaining, especially in the last quarter of it, when I was just turning the pages to get to whatever terrible thing Jess was planning to do in order to save everyone. Unfortunately, I knew I wasn’t going to get an answer in this book when there were only twenty pages left and Caine wasn’t any closer to revealing Jess’s plan. I almost groaned out loud when the story ended on a cliffhanger, with one line at the bottom of the page that said “to be continued in Book 4”.
I guess I just have to kick myself for not finding out more before diving into this series. Now I wonder when the next book will be out, and whether I will still remember the plot and characters by then. Oh well, at least the first three books were page-turners.
VERDICT: Yes, this is one of those ongoing and incomplete series as of today, and I suggest you wait till Caine has penned and published the last book before picking up Book 1.
