The Last Star – Rick Yancy

The Last Star The Last Star by Rick Yancey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another game, another test. Ringer escapes Vosch only to willingly return and do his bidding. The Silencers along this new journey are different than Grace or Evan. They’re much older. Much less expected. An old cat lady. A priest. A woman in mom jeans. Ben doesn’t know who to trust and when he finds Ringer, she must immediately deceive him. She believes that the only way the Squad can survive is if Evan dies.

Halfway through the book and the action heats up. Some characters die and others must make their first kills. Ringer drops a bomb, figuratively, and I have no idea where the storyline is going with it. It’s not immediately explained, but it should have been. It just seems like a strange plot point to add. (view spoiler)

Even three books in and I’m still constantly second guessing my conclusions. What is actually happening? Who or what is the villain? How will it all end? Beautiful and devastating. After all of the terror and death, the conclusion of the book was satisfying. Of course, there was no “and they lived happily ever after” but some of humanity survived and that’s important. The lives and their stories matter.
