As time runs out, Charlotte and Kevin discover that keeping Energo from eternal darkness will take a sacrifice no one expects.

Review:

I haven't read the previous two books even though this is not a stand alone. I didn't have any problem but I am sure I missed something about the world the book is set. Also I can't compare it to the other books. I was wrong when I thought I couldn't pick sides in the triangle. I liked Liam and I thought Calvin was cold and distant. As usual I did not liked the female character, Charlotte, but Samantha was good. What I liked was the way the triangle problem was solved. It was a little cruel though and probably some fans will get mad and disappointed. I found it kinda romantic. 

I am sure if I would suggest the series to a friend because a part or two just didn't work ot for me. I would have liked it if the author explained why Charlotte was in love with Liam and Calvin at the same time. I wouldn't say no to a better epilogue. The author seems promising.
