a trips down imagination road review
on 30 January 2014
I received a copy of Ending ELE, book 5 and the final book in the ELE series, in exchange for my review.
Picking up where Surviving ELE left off, Ending ELE sees Willow and her friends trying to avoid capture on two fronts, the army and Blake's men. Blake being Alec's father and the man who has taken over from Zack in his bid for Willow, and now Tony's blood.

I feel like that is a slightly inadequate summary, mainly because I was trying to avoid letting slip anything that may ruin the story! The ending (as in the book in general) did surprise me in a few places, particularly as some people turned out to be on completely different sides.
It took me a couple of pages to realise what was happening in the first chapter as well (though I did cotton on pretty quick after that) and I think that that gave an element of hope to the book. Though for something with dystopian elements it was a very upbeat (and satisfactory) ending.
That's all I'm going to say on Ending ELE, too many potential spoilers to go into more! But a couple of things on the series itself: the books were fast paced, with well written action scenes and imaginative science. And I think that Willow as a character has been on such a long and complex journey personality wise, particularly compared to many other protagonists her age. At the beginning of the series it was easy to remember she was just 15, but by the end she seemed so much older than 16, and with good reason it must be said!
Though I have a question. When Willow has children, would they also have powers? And would they have multiple powers or just one? And would Connor and Claire's children have one or two powers?
Ok turns out that was quite a few questions!
