This is an awesome book. I love the other two books. Draper is a highly descriptive author. Her words will make you a part of what you read. I highly recommend this book to teenagers. Darkness Before Dawn was a great book to end the trilogy.

I just figure everything else from the third as well as the last book. From the view of Keisha, how she thinks, how everything seems to her was described in details, making me fall into their world and follow them wherever they go, whatever they do. It was a very good choice, love it!
