My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Brilliant but frustrating twist at the end of this book that I should’ve seen coming. Highly addictive read. Can’t wait to find out what comes next and trust that Huntley finds happiness.

Huge cliffhanger at the end got me all pumped for the finale. Great buildup to the big bomb. Enjoyed seeing the growth in maturity of the protagonists. M is Not your typical damsel in distress.

This is a better follow up to Starstruck. With plenty of plot twists and like all other YA stories, the protagonists had to learn from the bad choices they made and try to figure a way out of those.

What an unexpected find this is. Think Romeo and Juliet meet Star Trek and the plot gets interesting from there. Entertaining to read somewhat and humorous in parts.

I love how you have grown more matured and less hotheaded in this the last of your adventures. I love how you patiently bid your time to reveal your last strategy towards the end. The impetuous youth in your past would have rushed headlong into trouble and jeopardize the situation by being over anxious. But your sense of justice prevails as always.

Loving Harry and the Deathly Hallows

I love how you really learned to listen to Hermione this time around, and chose to act for the greater good rather than shore up your defences with what would have been the most coveted weapon. In acting thus, you again showed us how truly selfless you are.

I love how you learnt to accept Snape’s actions and perhaps, understand why he was such a conflicted person in his love for your mother and his unwilling defence and protection of you. Reluctant though he may be, he was still shielding you from Voldemort until the very end.
