I feel like it’s impossible to talk about these books without discussing the whole series, so I’ve done quick thoughts for each individual books, plus a spoiler-free semi-series review with my review of Book 4 and a spoiler-filled discussion with my review of Book 6. I also did the same for Books 1-3.
Quick Thoughts on Book 5
I don’t have much to say that isn’t in my series review or spoiler discussion. This book was very little action and mostly just revelations. I liked when they gave Aaron a birthday party because the poor guy had never had one. I also liked the weird, growing friendship between Aaron and Kenji. But I was also increasingly frustrated with how off-the-rails everything was and numerous little things that didn’t quite add up.
My thoughts on the audiobook can be found in my review of Book 4.
