⇝My Thoughts⇜

 

This really is a satisfying ending to the Reckoners Series…I liked it, but…

 

 

 

I loved the first book in this series, it was inventive and clever.  The second book came out and I listened to it on audio, and I blamed the audio on why I couldn't fully connect.  I decided I would readCalamity because of that.  So…back to book format and I still couldn't fully connect.  I have to say, that sometimes, I just didn't know what was going on, like it was too complex for me.  I think this was a case of it's-not-you-it's-me.  I have to say though, that for me, David, is one of the best characters I have ever encountered.  It's by far the reason that I kept reading this series.

This third book introduced some intriguing elements to this world and it opened up opportunities for a spin-off series.  Will I read those when or if they come out?  Only time will tell…maybe if David is in them.
