It’s not just the twists and turns, and the surprises along the way that makes this installment as good as the first in the series. That does help make a good and enjoyable roller coaster of a story, it’s the believability of the characters.
I have read other YA books, and some have been good up to the point of “happily” ever after endings tied up in a neat bow, or a story with such potential but the actions of characters seemed so false and fake.
Coben understands the importance of real characters. Whether those characters live in a space ship, play with dragons, or live in the 1800’s, they must feel like the reader could meet them, talk to them, be in their world and its refreshing for me to see a story end without a tidy red bow making the characters have their happy ending.
From what I understand, this is the last Mickey Bolitar book, though by the time Mickey finally gets the answers about his father, I won’t spoil anything, but there definitely room for at least one more book.
I may hate red bow endings, but I dislike certain questions hanging in the air when a series ends. But besides this, Found is a wonderful final? Ride with Mickey, Ema, and Spoon. Glad I gave this series a try. Worth the time investment to read.
