And I paid for the hardcover of this instead of waiting for paperback. Le sigh. Everything about this one just seemed to rub me the wrong way. Ava gets a glimpse of the future and the world has been destroyed and most of her friends and family have died horrible deaths. She gets the chance to go back and stop this. So she has a few weeks to figure out how t I hate it when this happens. So she has a few weeks to figure out how to save the world, but what is her first thought?
She's worried she hurt hot guy's feelings and if she ruined their relationship. There ain't no time for this shit! Here's a bit of my review of book two: "One of the things I liked about this series was the lack of a lurve triangle. I just can't. Ava used to be this kick-ass character, but she spends her time in this book worried about lurve and which guys her friends lurve and how the rejected guys will feel.
The second to last chapter of the book just lists how and when most of the characters die, which makes me wonder what the point of everything was. Then the last chapter came out of nowhere and didn't even make sense. I legit don't really know what happened to the remaining characters. I love this author, and I will continue to read her books. She's written one of my favorite books, so my expectations are up there.
This one was just a mess for me, especially with how much I enjoyed the other books in this series. Dec 21, Ali rated it it was ok Recommends it for: Those wanting to finish this series. Shelves: horrible-books. Hawthorn by Carol Goodman was a total letdown after I read the previous two books. In my opinion, this is a 2. The first book was solid and a well thought through story, which, of course, needed to have a sequel.
When I read the second book, I knew it was my favorite. I usually hate second books in series, but Ravencliffe was an exception. It was also well thought through, but it had twists and interesting plot lines added to it, which really intrigued me. I was looking forward Hawthorn by Carol Goodman was a total letdown after I read the previous two books. I was looking forward to reading this book, and of course, I had high expectations from it, but then I read it and was really disappointed.
One of the main emotions that was conjured throughout this book is confusion. I read through this book times and still didn't understand what was really happening, and how it ended. I attempted to put this book down multiple times, but couldn't because I was so attached to the characters. When I got to the end, I was most confused and upset by it. I wasn't sure how it ended. Did the love interest leave and go to a different world with his family? What truly happened to the bad guy? These were all questions I kept on pondering after I read this serious letdown of a book.
I would not really recommend this book to anyone, but if there is someone who is wondering about how this series ends, then be my guest. Dec 05, Denise Sherman rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites. Book 3 was awesome Ava and her friend Helen go into the Blythe Wood near Faerie by request of Gillie to check some things out Reason being the hole was next to Faerie and tim what can I say Reason being the hole was next to Faerie and time is a bit different there Helen and Ava meet up with Gillie and Marlon and eventually find there way back to there time with a special watch made by Raven..
Raven held the door open to Faerie for Helen and Ava to return back to his time Ava and Helen tell everybody of Blythewood of what they saw and they have to stop Jude van Drood from his evil plot to destroy all of man kind Yea for Ava.. I loved how the story ends Nov 02, Ami rated it it was ok Shelves: fantasy , historical-element , teen-fiction.

Everything in this book felt overly hasty: the plot, the climax, the conclusion, the romance. It was all hurriedly done with little preplanning or organizing beforehand. Loose ends were conveniently tied up, dastardly villains were surprisingly easy to vanquish, and jilted lovers quickly found solace in the arms of former yet never mentioned previously sweethearts.
And speaking of jilted lovers- holy love triangles Batman! I have never personally known one person who was involved in a love tria Everything in this book felt overly hasty: the plot, the climax, the conclusion, the romance.

Frankly the entire novel was a vast disappointment. The premise and original idea was so intriguing and then the finale was just a bungled mess of cliches, exploited historical scenes, and disillusionment.
I wanted this book to be much better than it was and now I'm left with book regret. Jan 02, Jessica Medved rated it liked it. Finished this today - I was not in love but I also did not hate it - hence the 3 stars. I felt like there was a HUGE gap between the last book and the current book. I felt like I missed a whole year of the girl's lives and was so lost questioning if I had read the last book because they skipped from sophomore to senior year?
Or maybe I just don't understand the year structure at Blythewood. I did like the main event in this book but I felt like we could have gotten to it quicker - the beginning h Finished this today - I was not in love but I also did not hate it - hence the 3 stars. I struggled to read the beginning because it was so slow! But pretty much half way through the book it picked up and got more exciting - but the beginning half could have been way pared down. But again - I did not hate it. Dec 10, Rebecca Ferber rated it it was ok.
I really enjoyed the first two books, but wasn't as into this one. The historical fiction backdrop of the first book was the Triangle fire, while the second book incorporated Coney Island. I found both of those scenes to be interesting, while still giving the characters plenty of room to live and grow. This book launched into WWI and I just thought it was too much for the author to handle effectively.

This book was pretty much as good as the others. I still think Ravencliffe surpassed it by a lot, but the storyline and the Carol Goodman writing style that I love is still there. I was kind of disappointed at the end, though, because I know that Ava and Raven had a future together, because she said so, but then WTF?! They just ended it talking about Helen, Ava, and Daisy, no Raven really mentioned.
I still really loved it though, you should definitely read it if you loved the other two books :. Mar 26, Jeff Raymond marked it as unfinished-reads Shelves: arcs-manuscripts , unfinished , books-i-own-on-kindle , to-read-ya-fantasy. I gave up on this one about a quarter of the way in. I loved the first book, didn't care as much for the second, and the third basically makes the second unimportant with an early plot point, and doesn't seem to recover. While I've been hard on poor follow-ups in different YA trilogies in the past, the nosedive in quality that this series took, especially given its starting point, is nothing short of baffling to me on a whole.
Hugely disappointed. May 01, B. December 1st is so far away!!!! Apr 18, Joy Jenkins rated it did not like it Shelves: teen-fiction. This was a terrible book! Yes, some might see it as fun and full of twists and turns but when it comes down to it, it still was completely terrible. Let me explain. Though the first one was decent, the second fairly good, this one decided to jump off the tracks and make no sense.
Through the book the author just threw in solutions to problems with magic without ever explaining or without any set up for those magical principles to ever be part of the world!! Oct 05, Mickala rated it liked it. After reading Blythwood and Ravencliff I have night hopes for this book. Sadly it did not compare to its amazing predecessors.
The plot or lack there of took a turn that I did not expect or care for. I was excited to see where the story was going after the end of Ravencliff, sadly all we got was an all over the place mess. The plot was all over the place and at page 30 I was quickly los After reading Blythwood and Ravencliff I have night hopes for this book.
The plot was all over the place and at page 30 I was quickly losing hope that this book would be the conclusion I wanted. The characters all completely changed for the worst. Nothing the characters did or said matched the characters from the previous books that I grew to love. And everyone was apart of a love triangle. Then we have the ending, if you can call it that. It felt so rushed and left me confused. I reread the last few pages several times looking for the answers I missed, because it reads as if we should know what they decided.

That first book was really great, and the second was alright. This one though It missed the mark and it missed it by a mile. The strange time-jumps just never seemed to fit, and trying to work in a lot of history was sort of silly at times.
While the first book, and even the second, did alright with historical facts and settings this one just didn't. For an ending it wasn't very satisfactory. Especially the literal very end. They mention Raven going on with his parents Did he stay?
Did he go to faerie? Sort of confusing and a whole lot bizarre. I don't know, I like Carol Goodman but this was not great. Oct 23, Amanda rated it it was ok. It pains me to give this 2 stars. However, Hawthorn was so disjointed and felt like it was written 15 years after Ravencliffe with little more than a cursory review of the previous texts.
The last couple chapters felt like a mad dash to wrap everything up before the last page and the ending was strange a It pains me to give this 2 stars. The last couple chapters felt like a mad dash to wrap everything up before the last page and the ending was strange and a bit confusing.

It is disappointed to say that finishing left me feeling unsatisfied with the ending, especially after investing in the series and the many unanswered questions. I suppose it wasn't bad, but it wasn't what I would have wanted. Still, I read it to the end so for that it will get an average rating.
And I will add, the most disappointed part, is that the solutions to many of her problems kept being pointed out to Ava, and she never grabbed on to them.

What was so amazing and worthwhile in the first two books felt nearly extinguished in the last. All that work, all that build up, and what I get is a goodbye scene in the end. Anyway, too much to say without being the spoilingest spoiler. Not happy with the ending the way it was left.

Oct 10, Jesheckah rated it really liked it. The conclusion to a thrilling trilogy about an early 's girl's boarding school in the USA, that seeks to keep an international threat from destroying the world as we know it. Filled with faeries, friendships, romance, and tears, this series is amazing. I wasn't ready to say goodbye.
He accepts the job of town sheriff, hoping to find the solace he so desperately craves. A series of horrifying deaths and disappearances send a flood of panic through the idyllic town. It is only after the ravaged carcass of a full-grown whale surfaces, however, that the real terror begins. Soon Jake finds himself drawn into an ancient mystery — a mystery that ends with him adrift at sea, battling for survival against the deadliest predator the world has ever seen.
It is a creature whose ancestors ruled the prehistoric seas. Now freed after eons of imprisonment, it has risen to reclaim the oceans of the world as its own. Despite tragic losses, Garm Braddock and his brother Dirk wage a bloody war of attrition against the voracious marine reptiles: Garm from the helm of the anti-biologic submarine Gryphon and his brother from the top-secret military research facility known as Tartarus. In spite of ongoing attempts to destroy them, the prehistoric predators that rose from the ashes of Diablo Caldera continue to multiply.
They are bringers of death, and via more than just their deadly jaws. Their blood contains a primeval pathogen so virulent that, if left unchecked, could spell the end of mammalian life. Rising hungrily to the surface, it brings with it an intellect as cold as the abyss and an irrepressible need to destroy and devour. Unaware of the brutal battle that has just taken place between Ursula, the giant Megalodon shark, and the macropliosaur designated Typhon, Dr.
His brother Garm, commanding the anti-biologic submarine Gryphon, is assigned the dubious task of hunting down and exterminating Typhon. Meanwhile, Natalya Dragunova, captain of the Antrodemus , prepares to penetrate the perilous waters of Diablo Caldera — the Cretaceous-era lake from which the savage pliosaurs originated. Malevolent forces are at work that Dirk is unaware of, and he soon finds himself fighting not only for his life, but the lives of everyone he loves.
Nestled off the coast of Cuba, and shielded by impenetrable reefs of razor-sharp rock, stands Diablo Caldera. To the rest of the world the extinct, bowl-shaped volcano is hardly worth exploring. But the caldera has a secret. Its isolated saltwater lake has remained untouched since the fall of the dinosaurs. Inside this hellish aquarium are the deadliest marine predators the world has ever seen. But something is about to change.

The prison that is Diablo is beginning to fail, and soon it will unleash into the unsuspecting Atlantic a primeval fury the likes of which it has never before known. Diablo can be read prior to book one, but to avoid any possible spoilers, we recommend reading Kronos Rising first.
