My Rating:

Favorite Quotes:

I don’t know if she’s crazy or just a whore, but one usually follows closely behind the other.

At some point, I started wondering if we should get him checked for some sort of chemical imbalance. No normal person could be as inherently good as Noah was.

My Review:

A pox on that clever and talented scribe known as D. Kelly, she wrecked me!  She is a wily one who has more tricks than Penn and Teller.  Of the three books in the series, EP contained more angst than the first two combined and twice over.  So basically, it was an angstfest, which, admittedly, will never be one of my favorite things.  However, despite the pain, agony, and significant character losses in the storyline, I remained enamored with the remaining group and intrigued in how the tale would end.  Compared to the first two books, EP was a darker journey on a twisty road full of potholes, but the final destination was worth every bump.
