Review: Independence by Shelly Crane
By leahmsilverman on January 18, 2013
Independence is the fourth (and final) book in the Significance series by Shelly Crane. I was super excited for its release in December, but I have loved this series. But, I’m also sad because it is over.
Overall, I thought this was a nice ending. The bow wasn’t wrapped too tightly or neatly, but it was wrapped, and gave me the catharsis I want at the end of a series. I like it when not every conflict is resolved, leaving you with the feeling that these characters will go on living their lives after the author has stopped writing.
There were a few things I was disappointed about. I felt like in the previous book, Defiance, Maggie was really starting to come into her own and develop her powers. But I felt like that all fell a little flat in this book. She didn’t do much as the Visionary at all, and barely used her magnificent powers. I would’ve liked a nice power show down. I like a powerful female protagonist. Not that Maggie wasn’t strong, she certainly was. But, you know. Magic is cool.
Having said that, I still really enjoyed the book. There is something about these characters and their romances that just makes me happy. And, even thought it provided the catharsis I like at the end of a series… it still left me wishing it wasn’t the end of the series. That is the sign of a good series.
I give it:
