This is the third book in the All These Gifts series. It’s more of the same, which is what I read these books for but it’s also a bit disappointing. Not because it’s bad but because it’s just a part. A part of a bigger story, which makes sense in a series but it feels short. It has no beginning and no end. The author was thoughtful enough to include a summary of the first two books for those who, like me, don’t remember much of the action, and I really appreciate that, but the ending comes abruptly. Why then? Why not 10 pages earlier or 10 pages later?
All this aside, Jolie and Deneve are captivating characters and their relationship is evolving in a direction neither expected. Kilaen nails the dystopian mood and the dysfunctional found but not chosen family.
