I was really hoping that Reeve and Lillia would end up together because their romance was so freaking beautiful and chemistry-filled. And where the heck did Mary go? I don't know why Rennie had to die, since it really served no purpose. All the boys love her. They could be friends and be seen together in public.
It is filled with so many emotions - fear, joy, love, loss - I'm still reeling from it all. This book will keep you at the edge of your seat until the very end. That's one thing I liked best about this series - I honestly never knew what to expect and there's no way I could've predicted the ending.
All of the elements of this book add up to a great wrap up to the series - contemporary with a little paranormal, sweet, intense romance, friendships, dealing with loss, and teenagers becoming adults and moving on to the next stage of their lives. Overall, this was a great book, although I feel like the ending was a little unsatisfying and rushed, and it definitely left me heartbroken. Also, it was definitely not how I pictured the series to end.
This series is definitely one of my favorites and I'm sad that it finally ended. I highly recommend reading these books, they are nothing less than amazing, but I mean, could you expect anything else from the writing geniuses that are Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian?

Okay, maybe it's not stone-cold, but it's hurt and disappointed and it needs to raaaage. First of all, let it be known that I absolutely loved this series. I was completely immersed in each of the three gir Warning: I was completely immersed in each of the three girls' plight, and found myself enjoying the story so much, that even after finishing the previous installments, I would come back just to read certain scenes, over and over again like a mad lunatic. Few books have made me feel that way.
So, this series was a pretty big deal to me.
And that cliffhanger? So, was it unreasonable for me to expect it would end with a bang? Was it unacceptable for me to think it will end in a similar fashion - with hearts a-squeezin', eyes bulging from their sockets, and breaths coming short and fast? I truly wish I were kidding, but alas, it is with a heavy and sad heart for me to say that this book simply wasn't the book I expected. I mean, whether or not it was or wasn't, I wouldn't have cared so much because there are just times an author's vision is different, you know?
But this book really just went on a direction that left me appalled and jaw-slacked. I didn't even recognize it anymore. Kat, Lillia, and Mary. And for the past two books, their presences were widely felt and they all were awesomely-characterized.
I could tell them apart from each other; they all had their own personalities that absolutely screamed unique; and they had their own mini-storylines apart from the main one. It was a blast reading everything from three view points, and it was an even bigger blast getting to know them intimately. Almost everything fucking starts revolving around her. All the boys love her. The girls adore her. Kat keeps doing things for her. What happened to Kat's storyline? What happened to the bad-ass chicks who set the world ablaze with their awesomeness?
Why is everything about Lillia's lovelife now? And where the heck did Mary go? Oh, right, her strong presence vanished and she would pop up every now and then just to be annoying. She suddenly becomes this highly different person her transition from Mary Book 2 to Mary Book 3 was anything but natural.
It all felt so sudden and it only came off as contrived for me who becomes so malicious that watching her turn into so was laughably silly that I was cringing and covering my eyes in second-hand embarrassment.
It was seriously sad. I was fucking sad. Look, I love Reeve and all and he made me dig an asshole bad boy for once when I usually loathe them and stomp on them in my brutal imagination, but it's really another thing to make the direction of the third book revolve around it and setting aside other stuff for it. It may not have been meant to be that way, but its overwhelming presence made it seem so anyway. Halfway there, I just resigned to it and was just thankful for the fact that I like Reeve and Lillia together so might as well just get it over with.
And then came the ending. And the fire inside me grew even bigger. Yes, you read that right. It's only ONE bloody chapter! I turned my book upside down, checked the last pages to see if I was seeing right, hoped to the gods my eyes were deceiving me That half-ass conclusion was all the closure I'd get.
I never felt so cheated and ripped off in my entire left. For three books we were given a roller coaster of emotions and everything ends in a few pages, and in such an abrupt manner to boot. That's it? And there's that awful epilogue! I don't even want to talk about it.
It simply broke my heart into two. All in all, this book was a complete and utter disappointment. It was such a big, big let-down and I weep for what-could-have-been. I'll simply just pretend the series ended in Book 2 and leave it at that. View all 36 comments. I am not entirely happy with how things ended because dayum! The series turned out to be a paranormal-mystery-thriller and I honestly enjoyed it. All the while I thought it was going to be a fun YA chick-lit read because of the covers.
Sorry about that. I guess I could safely say that the ending gave me enough closure and satisfactory resolutions to the conflicts. The series is definitely worth the read. I finished all three books in three days. View all 17 comments. Apr 28, Khanh, first of her name, mother of bunnies marked it as to-read.
I really wish I hadn't read the summary for this book, because it just spoiled me for book 2. Goddamn it. View all 25 comments. Han and Vivian manage to create drama that doesn't feel aimless or overly melodramatic and characters with incredible depth and growth.
It's safe to say that yes, I loved this series up until this very last instalment which has pretty much tainted my feelings towards the entire series. Words do not even begin to explain how disappointed I am with this series ender. The start of this novel is bleak and notably dark. As for Kat, she's confused. She was once Rennie's best friend and while on one hand she doesn't want to care, but she's trembling inside. If I were to rate the beginning of this book, I'd smack 5 stars all over it.
However, things soon make a turn for the worse. I'll be blunt: I did not like the plot line at all. I didn't feel that much happened until the second half of the book.
Sure, there's plenty of drama but I couldn't help asking myself: I will say that she becomes completely blinded by revenge on Reeve, and goes absolutely crazy with her infatuation with him.
I wasn't a huge fan of this aspect of the novel, or the big reveal that I aforementioned. Reeve and Lillia feels all the freaking way; I loved it!
Their romance has obvious chemistry to it, and that's what I loved about Reeve and Lillia. You can tell how much Reeve actually cares for Lillia and it's seriously the most beautiful thing to read about.
In one flimsy page, Mary just decides that she's found her peace and disappears, just like that. Everything these books preached about?
All down the drain. I was really hoping that Reeve and Lillia would end up together because their romance was so freaking beautiful and chemistry-filled. These authors spent ages on writing about them, and then Goodbye, my ship. Instead, Lillia ends up with Alex. I mean, Alex is Lillia's second choice and there wasn't even any build up to their romance. If the authors had given them some build up during this book, I might've been able to accept that ending more, but it was seriously out of the blue.
Also, why couldn't have Kat and Alex gotten together? I really don't understand why this book ended the way it did. It just made no sense to me, and it saddens me even more that Lillia and Kat didn't stay close friends after everything they went through together.
I've probably used that word too many times already but it's simply the only emotion I felt once I finished this book. The ending, the plot, and even some of the characters just didn't make this the epic finale that I hoped it would be. View all 3 comments. This book was headed for 5 stars until the end. I was NOT happy with the way they wrapped it up. View all 5 comments. Dec 03, pdbkwm rated it did not like it. Wow, it sure is crazy how much this book didn't live up to the hype I had for it.
I loved Burn for Burn. Fire with Fire was just okay, mainly because it felt like some of the characters didn't act like themselves and the whole reveal about Mary the Ghost. I really hated that reveal. Sadly, Ashes to Ashes takes all of the things that I didn't like from the second book and intensifies it here. After the reveal about Mary being a Ghost and seeing Rennie die in a horrific accident, I thought the book Wow, it sure is crazy how much this book didn't live up to the hype I had for it.
After the reveal about Mary being a Ghost and seeing Rennie die in a horrific accident, I thought the book would be about how Rennie is back to get revenge on Lillia and Reeve for destroying her life. Mary, even though she feels devastated by the new relationship, tries to stop Rennie. The other characters deal with the loss of Rennie. Kat learns new truths about Rennie. Kat and Lillia find out the truth about Mary and the three girls team up to stop her from wrecking havoc in their small town.
In the end, everyone is happy and Rennie and Mary move on. Not even close, which is fine. Totally fine. But what we got instead was just the worse. Everyone is still reeling from Rennie's shocking death. There's crying, there's talks about what Rennie would have wanted, but mostly it isn't really all that important to the story.
The story is mostly about Lillia and Reeve's relationship and Mary talking about how she needs to destroy everyone. Here's the thing though, everything that happened in the book doesn't matter because the epilogue threw all of the plots out of the window and gave us something no one wanted. In terms of the characters, I'm not even sure where to start.
She just runs or tries to ignore the issue, until the story needs her to actually say or do something. As for Kat? She peeked in Burn for Burn and has since become a side character. I thought she didn't do much in the last novel, but it's even worse here. There was some buildup between her and Alex only that doesn't go anywhere.
In fact, she refers to him as her brother here. Mary, Mary, quite contrary why can't you just let it go? Instead she makes it her mission to destroy Reeve and take down Lillia and Kat in the process. Every chapter involved her being stupid. She's not even a fun vengeful ghost, she's just annoying.
When she finally realizes that's she's a horrible character, it's much too late. Reeve was the only character that was properly developed throughout the series. The authors did a great job with his characterization. I hated him when he was first introduced, but I grew to love him.
He was my favourite character in the novel and out of everyone; I wanted him to have a happy ending. Instead he suffered the most, while everyone else is happy. But what I hated the most about this book is the epilogue. It's like the authors said to themselves, 'Hey, let's make this a different kind of ending and to hell with all the plots and build up that we've been going with for the last three books. Let's just write something and call it a day. I raged to my friends about the HP ending, but at least it made sense to the story.
Here, it doesn't. And even though it shouldn't affect my views on the series, it does. When I finished reading it, I thought to myself, 'Wait, what? So what was the point of the three books if the epilogue is going to ignore everything that happened and do something else? What was the point of the novels when none of the plots that have been happening since the first book ever came into fruition.
We don't even get closure, it just ends and glosses over it like it was meaningless and worth nothing. I don't know why Mary needed to be a ghost.
I don't know why Rennie had to die, since it really served no purpose. I don't know why Kat became a secondary character. I don't know why Lillia didn't take proper action.
I don't get why Reeve had to be screwed over so badly, when the authors did an awesome job making him sympathetic. And I don't understand the need for that horrible excuse of an epilogue. Even if it wasn't there I would still have issues with the book, but the epilogue pushed me over the edge. Uggh, I just can't with this book. What a disappointing end to what could have been am awesome series.

Jul 19, Deanna rated it liked it Shelves: This book was just all over the place, which is perfectly fine when it comes to the fact that there are three protagonists Mary, Kat, and Lillia.
As a person who disliked Mary since book 1, I enjoyed the fact that Mary didn't have as many chapters as Lillia or Kat did. As a person who likes Lillia, I was ecstatic to see this book more focused around her Kat ended up being treated like a background character, which was not cool at all. I was really happy to see Lillia and Reeve's relationship develop in this book.
It became obviously clear that se was the light of his life, and he was the one that she truly loved. Hey, I ship these two. They're so sweet around each other.
I really loved seeing Reeve's character fleshed out. It was nice to get more of a backstory on him, his home life, and why he's who he is. I didn't enjoy the fact that Alex Linds who was one of my favorite characters, besides Kat, Lillia, and Reeve ended up being used as plot device to create drama between Lillia, Reeve, and him. He was barely there in the book, besides being whiny over the fact that Lillia liked Reeve, and then ignored Lillia like an immature 8-year-old.
It was also upsetting to see how little he and Kat interacted although, that might also have to do with how little chapters she had in comparison to Lillia. What's even more upsetting is that most of the time the two interact, it always had to do with his harboring crush on Lillia. I missed seeing the two being friends. While I was glad that Mary was getting little chapters, I hated how scornful she was.
She immediately concludes to herself that Lillia and Kat are both traitors, and therefore she must seek revenge. It was very immature and just proved how little she valued their friendship. She even whines at one point about how "Lillia and Kat didn't even bother to look for her," which was absurd because Kat did try to figure things out.
Maybe if she focused less on obsessing over Reeve, she would realize that her friends were worried for her. The book was fast-pace, intriguing, and was on parr with the other two books in the trilogy. It was exciting, terrifying, and kept me on edge especially towards the end. They only see each other again at Kat's father's funeral. But the icing on the cake is the fact that the authors dare hint to us that Lillia and Alex are a thing.

I was disappointed, let down and torn apart with no mercy a million times while reading this. Devastated is more like it. So what happened was that basically Ashes to Ashes tore my heart out, ripped it to pieces and never bothered to put it together again. Everything just went to hell from the beginning — each and every one of the story lines. At least then I would have kept my piece of mind. So now I had to suffer through the disappointing twists and turns of this last horrible installment to my otherwise favorite YA series which, to make matters even worse, completely lacked the shocking revelations of the first two books.
Lillian's tory was complete and utter bullshit, although my guess is that the authors went for the shock-effect, but well it was so 'shocking' that there's no way I'm buying it.
And worst of all, it dragged on for nearly pages in ebook format. Anyone who expects a proper ending to a great series will be inevitably frustrated, annoyed and in the end, speechless, like I am. When I read the ending, I thought there had to be a mistake, maybe there were pages missing or something but no. Gosh, after this I really need a break from reading.
Not recommended. Nov 07, Sarah rated it liked it Shelves: This was an okay end to the series, but I found the pace quite slow.
Mary really became quite psychotic in this book, blaming Reeve for her suicide — like he made her do it! Lillia was totally head over heels for Reeve, and Kat was Kat.
The storyline in this was about Mary getting her revenge on Reeve, but the pace was really slow, and it seemed like not a lot happened compared to the length of the book. The ending was okay, but I was pleased it was over by that point.
Auch die Charaktere fand ich hier richtig gut. Was sollte denn bitte dieser bescheuerte Epilog? Jun 05, Fuzaila rated it liked it Shelves: Well, that was a freaking Indian soap opera. It was cringe-worthy, but at the same time, the writing was super good and thrilling and you just cannot take your eyes off the page.
She was really fine in the first book. I love her intelligent nature, brassy attitude, her loyalty, her love for her family, everything about her. But there was some kind of hilarity and immaturity to her behavior that I felt was very Mary-like. He had to suffer a lot more than he deserved. And he regretted it his whole life.
It was so very well developed; there was some real chemistry between them, even if I did feel that they were totally not matched as couples. A solid friendship, even without Mary. Whoa, really? Such stupid crap?
It was rushed and there was no much talking and understanding, it was just wrapped up in a thrilling, nice, very convenient way. And how could she even leave Reeve when they loved each other like crazy? There was no reason, it was like they were together and so in love one day and not together anymore the next. But the most awful of all was Lillia going with Alex.
This book and the ending does no justice to the previous two books, and I really wish it had ended some other way. I've hated the endings to almost all the trilogies I've read, I'm surprised this doesn't go all the way down to 1 star. I'd say its Jenny Han's doing but I'll also have to give Vivian the credit Jul 12, Elena rated it really liked it.
I don't even know how to rate this. I'm so pissed right now. I need a break. I absolutely adored the first two books and after all the revelations the second book left us with I couldn't wait for the third book to arrive. And in general it didn't disappoint me. Ashes to Ashes was exactly like its predecessors fast-paced and really intriguing. The characters were amazing. So much changed in the course of these three books.
I have only two complaints. One is minor.
The second destroyed everything for me. The minor complaint I have is the ending. Must redeem within 90 days. See full terms and conditions and this month's choices.
