I'm not sure what to say about this. I adored Across the Universe. With little hearts and stars. And I liked A Million Suns, even though it had some Middle Book problems. But this...hrm. Not so much. I think my biggest problem with it is that large chunks just don't make sense (bad science ahoy!), while others are a little too pat. Or blazingly obvious. And worse, I didn't find myself liking any of the characters, even ones I previously enjoyed. I'll admit it: I'm thrown by this one. Maybe I'd have liked it more if I hadn't loved where the series began quite so much. I'll give it points because it had some interesting ideas, and memorable scenes.
