SUMMARY (from Goodreads):
Gray Weathersby and his group of rebels must make their final stand in the epic conclusion to the Taken trilogy, which New York Times bestselling author Marie Lu called "an action-packed thrill ride from beginning to end."
The Order is building an unstoppable army, with every generation of Forgeries harder to detect and deadlier than the one before. It’s time for Gray and his fellow rebels to end the Order's world of lies. But when the most familiar faces—and even the girl he loves—can’t be trusted, Gray will have to tread carefully if he wants to succeed. Or survive.
First off, I would like to say thank you to Erin Bowman for hosting the giveaway that I won this ARC in!
Because this is the final book in a trilogy, I'll keep my review brief to avoid spoilers.
I really liked this book. It had everything that I loved about the first two books and more. It was a super quick, fun read. The characters have changed and developed so much since the first book, and I absolutely love them all. The ending was solid, and wrapped the trilogy up nicely.
But why the four stars?
SPOILERS AHEAD. HIGHLIGHT TO VIEW.
I did not like how Blaine's death was handled. It seemed WAY too quick, and I felt that it needed a little bit more lead up to it to really feel something. I was more surprised than sad.
Overall, FORGED is a solid ending to a fabulous trilogy! I highly recommend this trilogy to dystopian fans!
CONTENT: Kissing, one implied sex scene, and some talk of sex. Hardly any swearing, and lots more violence than the previous books.
