My Review


I loved the Significance series and I am so glad that I came across it. It has been a journey worth taking filled with everything you could want from a story. This is why I am sorry that I have to take away a star from this book.

I am disappointed to give less than five stars to this book. I was really hoping for more from it. This must be the problem. I waited months for the final instalment of the Significance series and in my excitement must have worked it up in my head because I was not as impressed with it as I had hoped.

From the beginning I was disappointed. I loved the other books so much. Only eight chapters in I found at least three notable mistakes one of which being the name of a character and two more were significant events in the lives of the supporting characters.

After I got passed these errors I found myself back in the stride of the story, however, and rather enjoyed it. There were plenty of moments to make the readers laugh, cry and gasp. As with all the other books in the series there are moments that will make your heart race and because of this I will give it four stars.
It lost a star because of its mistakes in the plot, regurgitated ideas and the loose ends left untied.
