In the third installment of the Significance series, we begin with Maggie and Caleb in the clutches of a new enemy; the Virtuoso council. Not only do they have to deal with the consequences of taking the lives of the Watsons and the council attempting to take Maggie away to keep their precious Visionary safe, but they must deal with Marla as well. All are determined to undermine, control and use Caleb and Maggie's rare gifts for their own uses, some wish to destroy them entirely. Then Maggie's father and Bish are threatened but the council forbids the presence of humans. Peter and the family fight and stand beside them every step of the way to save Maggie's father, to keep Caleb and Maggie together when the corrupted council is so set on keeping them apart and to stop Marla and whatever she has up her sleeve. Then Maggie has the shock of her life when she discovers something about her real father. It may change everything for everyone. Stay tuned as the story continues.
Well if this is meant to be the final installment in the Significance series, than Crane really went out with a whopper of a finale. I truly enjoyed each of this series' installments, and while I was somewhat sad throughout this last book because I knew I'd have to say goodbye to these great characters and this fantastic world that Crane has created for her readers, I was also content that she would make sure things worked out the way they should.
Maggie and Caleb once again just can't seem to get a break, and if I thought they had to jump through hoops prior to this book I had no idea what would be in store for them this time around. Crane will keep her readers on the edges of their seats without a doubt. There's tension galore, a good amount of romance, enough family camaraderie to leave all the readers cheering and falling in love with Caleb and Maggie's families. And I think every reader will be on the same page regarding how much you will end up loathing the bad guys this time around. It's crazy how much I disliked them in this book, which shows how great Crane's writing style is because man oh man did these characters get me heated whenever they threw another wrench in my favorite couple's way.
So if you're looking for a series that's great from start to finish and throughout every installment, this is the one for you!
