Charbonneau resolved the story nicely and tied up the loose ends, but her book lacked the firepower and punch that she was able to create in the Testing.

View all 3 comments. Jun 11, Kelly Roberson rated it it was amazing. Charbonneau’s conclusion to The Testing series was well written, leading to an exciting conclusion that answers many of the questions posed in the first two books about The Testing.
I am sad to say goodbye to another series. That just wouldn’t be okay. Overall, an okay read. I also respected the integrity of Cia, her strong moral compass even when she must do tasks she finds uncomfortable. I really enjoyed the first book when I read it as an ARC, but the issue with this series is that you get so excited about what’s going to happen next that you don’t notice the crappy character building and writing.
Stacia was also very nicely done; her kind and motivated but also selfish personality really shone here and remained consistent throughout the book.
This is the graduatiin important test I have faced thus far in my life. Who do you believe when you are hearing different stories from each side and both sides feel that they are right? Once things get started, the book really races to the finish as it becomes a question of who can be trusted to do the right thing.
I can not fail.
Blink and you miss it! The first half of this book was extremely slow. I was able to connect with Cia when she tries to find the least violent way to reach her goal, since she does not want any more deaths than necessary. Rather than relying on one of her other underlings, Collindar gives Cia a hit list of strategic targets—Dr.
En voordat ik ga spoilen houd ik nu op joelle.
She’s smart, thinks things through, and makes the tough decision even when she doesn’t want to. Also, a problem that I’ve had with her that continued into this book was her fear of killing. I was bored out of my mind and took no pleasure in reading this final installment.
Through her narration of the story, Cia proves to be a young woman who attempts to maintain her integrity and hold on to the values of respecting life that her parents instilled in her in the Five Lakes Colony. It took Cia about ten pages just to think through one problem and then it took another twenty for her to decide who she can tell. Though I didn’t joeole through this one quite as fast as I did the first two books, it was still very good with lots of little surprises.
I gdaduation can’t get past the Mary Sue main character. Don’t get me wrong as there was some action but it did not happen until really the last half of the book. I also enjoyed Will’s personality in this one, and I thought the direction that the author decided to take with him was the right one.
Tomas, Raffe and Stacia are the only student Cia knows for certain she can trust.

After looking more carefully over the list Cia decides that there are only five people who definitely need to be killed; Dr. Charbonnesu first two books were full of action and suspense; however, I felt as though the author Joelle Charbonneau purposely dragged this book out and added a large amount of clutter.
But there’s no way in heck she’d put everything on Cia.
