My Summary

Worth-waiting for. It took me a long time worrying how will Aria, Perry and their families will survive their world. And now that "Still Blue" is out and I finally read the conclusion to this action-packed and breath-taking trilogy, all I could say is that it was worth my wait. Though I have to read few lines on book 1 and 2 to remind me how the story left Aria and Perry, it didn't took me a while to get familiar with the characters again. It was like meeting your old friends again after a long time of not seeing each other.

The excitement is never-ending, when I thought everything is going to its right place, a twist will suddenly happen. Ms. Rossi has never failed to surprise me with her plot. Something you wouldn't see coming is for sure will happen, when you thought you all figured it out, it will leave you shocked and surprise. 

I love how all the characters are alive in the story. Each of them has their own story to tell, and not just focused on Aria and Perry. You could feel each characters as if you're with them inside the story. You'll feel the loss when someone dies, and you'll feel the frustration and fear for their survival. I was almost at the end and I'm still worried if they'll make it to still blue. All of them have suffered so much that I can't help but pray hard for all of them to make it. For them to have the happy ending they all fought to have. In all of the stories, all these characters deserve the happy ending. Well, except for Sable and Hess of course! 

I once heard that a character is not good enough if he/she doesn't get in to your skin. I guess Sable is really a good character then. Because I really want to strangle him to death!!! I can't believe I can be so affected to an antagonist as much as Sable did!

I'm not in the mood for spoiler now, so I'll just end this review by saying that this book never disappointed me. When I thought that book 1 is so good that it will be difficult for Ms. Rossi to level up the next book, he did it twice with book 2 and 3.
