(Backfiring as a way to clean up some reading lists because I stupidly keep glancing at the "also enjoyed" and adding more to the TBR but working to remind me I wanted to read something or continue some series.)

The Final Eclipse
Daughters of the Moon: The Final Eclipse - #13 (Daughters of the Moon) - Lynne Ewing

This book surprised me in how good it turned out. Most of the problems I'd had with this series such as a lack of planning, obsession and distraction with boys, and overly described clothing, was not prominent in this book. I wrapped up the series very well in that you learn what happened to all the daughters. It was full of action. I didn't know how it would end until I got to the end. That's a great thing.


I'm glad this series is over and that I now don't feel incomplete.

The Becoming
The Becoming - Lynne Ewing

This has to be the best of this series thus far. It made Tianna my favorite of the girls. She wasn't completely distracted by boys, which was so refreshing. She was very protective of those she loves. It was also nice to see that the five Daughters actually got together and spent time trying to figure out what was going on. In all of the previous books, they would talk about it for like five minutes and then walk irrationally into danger.

After this reread I can now see why Lynne Ewing thought this was a good finale to the series. She probably could have just finished with this book if she had done some sort of epilogue to see what the future held for the characters. Unfortunately she ended right after the action completed and left everyone hanging. I'm shocked she wasn't prepared for all her readers to beg for another book.

And now finally to finish this juvenile series...

The Talisman
The Talisman - Lynne Ewing,Alessandra Balzer,Suza Scalora

Well this book had many of the same flaws as its predecessors. Conversations and interactions would go way too fast. Characters' moods change dramatically and often. I would keep thinking to myself, "Well, that escalated quickly..."

What I did really enjoy about this book is what really sets it apart from the rest in the series. The book was about Maggie's life back in long ago Athens. So it's great to have the change in scenery and it's exciting to learn a little more about Maggie.

I love Greek Mythology and that's the reason I was first drawn to this series as a young adult. This book really got into it. It was pretty good.

I am excited to finish this series. I'm so close to the end that I'm beginning to get impatient.

The Choice
The Choice - Lynne Ewing

I read this over a week ago I think... I don't know why it took me so long to get to writing this review.

This book focuses on Jimena. I really liked it in that it was pretty action packed, and the playing with time was pretty fun. For the first time, the ending of the book threw me for a loop and has me highly anticipating the next book to see what happens.

And now for the venting portion...
These girls are so easily distracted, especially by boys. It's really annoying. They are in the middle of life and death situations ready to battle or trying to decide what to do, then a boy shows up and they all scatter and flirt and forget about the important stuff.

Conversations always seem extremely short and they always leave shortly after arriving anywhere. I've also noticed that they avoid responsibility and never plan things out. They show up to do battle with the evil person and they wear skimpy little outfits with high heel shoes. Then they complain later when they are running and have to run barefoot. 

It's definitely a preteen series. I can't imagine very many high school students relating or enjoying these books all that much. 

I still enjoy the Greek Mythology to their powers, and the books are definitely improving. Short little fun read.
