    These origin stories always get me because we kind of know how it's going to unfold overall and we don't want it to happen. We kind of hope (in a way) that the author will take this a different way even though we KNOW that they can't and there's nothing any of us can do but go down this rabbit hole with them. This installment is equally destroying in that it's the last in the trilogy so you are both flying through it and simultaneously wanting yourself to stop being such a book glutton . . . the end is near and you don't want this series to be over.

    , you've destroyed me, but I loved it!

    SPOILERY PARAGRAPH ON THE LOOSE! You have been warned . . . .

    I have to say, the beginning of this book was giving me

    trilogy and are reading this one as well, we get each other.

    Once again loved the Lock & Mori relationship. Loved the mystery. Loved the suspense. Loved the page-turning (or, since I used my Kindle, swiping or pressing). Thank you for a perfect conclusion to your lovely series,

    ! Can't wait to read more of your treasures in the future.

    Thank you, Edelweiss and Simon & Schuster, for providing me with an advanced copy of

    Final Fall starts off exactly where we left off. With Mori held captive by a person she once trusted. She must find a way to not only escape but help her brothers escape somewhere far away from the trouble her family's past has caused.

    This book wasn't as fun as the first two. The book focuses strictly on Mori (with Lock barely making an appearance) and her decision to "clean up" the people who have wronged her and her brothers. While it still had the dark tone, there was no mystery to be had. It

    Final Fall starts off exactly where we left off. With Mori held captive by a person she once trusted. She must find a way to not only escape but help her brothers escape somewhere far away from the trouble her family's past has caused.

    This book wasn't as fun as the first two. The book focuses strictly on Mori (with Lock barely making an appearance) and her decision to "clean up" the people who have wronged her and her brothers. While it still had the dark tone, there was no mystery to be had. It was a straight up action thriller as Mori finds herself constantly moving on from one person to the next, leaving stains of blood in her wake. The book makes it very clear that Mori can't be redeemed. She can't be saved. She has absolutely no problem murdering everyone, even questioning if she could kill Lock if she had to.

    I was kind of disappointed by the lack of Mori and Lock interaction. We didn't get any sort of closure on their relationship and by the end, it leaves the relationship on a very sour note. I mean, I guess you could assume it wouldn't end well with them being Sherlock and Moriarty. But I wish there would have been more time to actually establish where their relationship stood by the end. It kind of felt cold and I didn't really feel any sort of emotional impact by it essentially ending in the way it did after spending the entire book apart and Lock being completely left in the dark for most of it.

    I'm kind of disappointed at the end. The fun mystery and character interactions are what made the first two books enjoyable. This book was missing both of those elements, dropped for a depressingly pessimistic tone and left on a rather unsatisfying conclusion. I knew it might end this way but I guess I wasn't fully prepared for it to end with so many plot threads left open and so many questions left unanswered.

    The events that have been pushing at Mori since two books finally reach a breaking point in Final Fall. The story opens with Mori in captivity, being held by Alice and trained to be a weapon. But Mori has had enough of being under other's control, and starts devising ways to change her state, get her brothers out and safe, and ensure they can have a happy life after all. But before that, she has revenge to take, and people to kill - and one by one, she transforms into a hardened creature.

    The events that have been pushing at Mori since two books finally reach a breaking point in Final Fall. The story opens with Mori in captivity, being held by Alice and trained to be a weapon. But Mori has had enough of being under other's control, and starts devising ways to change her state, get her brothers out and safe, and ensure they can have a happy life after all. But before that, she has revenge to take, and people to kill - and one by one, she transforms into a hardened creature.

    This book actually doesn't have much of Lock in it - it is purely about Mori. Sherlock pops up in some places, trying to make her see the light, but she no longer thinks they can walk the same path. Her rejection of him has more to do with the fact that she thinks herself to be his weakness, and she doesn't want to drag him into the darkness. So, in order to turn him away from her, she becomes the villain that the character is known to be. There is something heartbreaking about seeing her go about it alone, when he was her rock for two books, but then again, we knew this story would never have a happy ending.

    As a finale, I think it did good. Trent was an addition I could do without, honestly, but otherwise, the book wraps up many threads of the story. A satisfactory conclusion.

    I requested this book from NetGalley thinking that I had read the first book in the series. I had not but I didn't feel like I needed to read either of the first two books in this series to understand the story. There was some back story on why the book opens with Mori in a cell, trapped by her aunt and separated from her brothers.

    This book focuses mainly on Mori and her search for revenge. We don't get a lot of "Lock" in this book and their meetings are... I guess the "bittersweet" from the bac

    This book focuses mainly on Mori and her search for revenge. We don't get a lot of "Lock" in this book and their meetings are... I guess the "bittersweet" from the back cover blurb sort of covers it.

    Not my favorite update of the Sherlock story but not horrible.
