Rating (1 to 5): 4.57
Strong finish to the series, but what age was this written for? It seemed advanced for a Y.A. audience. PTSD, murder, prostitution, torture, political double-dealing. Younger audiences probably wouldn't get the nuances of some of these themes, though I thought they were handled well. The damage that was done to all the victors, psychologically, seemed real, and I could really feel it at times.
There were certain things in how it ended that I liked, but will not reveal those here.
