My Rating: 4 stars

This book was arguably the best in the series. The Vespers felt a lot more real than in the previous books; I was always wondering, if they are so ruthless, why haven't any of the hostages been killed yet? They keep disobeying and trying to escape. It wasn't that I wanted them to die, it's just that if the Vespers were as ruthless as the story claimed, at least one Cahill hostage would have bit the dust by now. Well, in this book (view spoiler)SPOILER   Uncle Alistair did. -Sad yay-

One thing I didn't like, however, was that in this book Amy was less cool, fearless leader, and more Mockingjay Katniss-ish. Near the end, she goes slightly insane. I understand why, though I don't exactly like it. Amy kind of annoyed me when she did that.

It was also interesting to learn about Archimedes. And finally, all the stuff the Vespers are making the Cahills steal makes sense. The ending was another cliff hanger that made me want to have the sixth book in my hands right at that very moment!

The unexpected plot twists, exhilerating action, and unbelievable ending made this a great book to read. But, in the sixth book, it better say who Amy is going to end up with, because otherwise that whole love square--yes, square, there are THREE guys--will be for nothing!

P.S. I didn't like this cover at ALL. Ugly scorpion does not equal gorgeous cover!
