2.0 out of 5 stars Worst book of the series, which jumps the shark 3 Feb 2012
By Pamela R. Heath - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have mixed feelings about this book. I loved the series until this final installment. Looking back on my read, I was surprised to realize that it actually has very little in the way of plot. Instead, "Undone Deeds" focuses on answering some (but not all) of the questions raised earlier in the series and shifting our focus from the old story line (which was about a very human Connor struggling with his disability and trying to remember and move beyond his past, including his prior narcissism) to some kind of mythology about gods and creation that is never adequately explained and left me feeling confused and disgruntled. It felt as if the whole series took a jarring right turn. The closer it got to the end, the worse the book became. Normally I enjoy surprising twists, however these were not limited to old villains but also our main hero. It took away his humanity and made all the growth and struggle that Connor did in the other books meaningless. I was left feeling a combination of confusion, anger, disbelief, and disgust by the end.

I gave this book two stars because even if I hated the ending and the confusing story, I did enjoy the earlier sections before the story jumped the shark. Read the earlier books. They're great. But if I could do it over, I'd skip this one. It is not a book I will reread or can recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Confused. (SPOILER review...BEWARE) 3 Feb 2012
By S. E. Baratta - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm sorry to write a review that although does not contain specific spoilers is, in fact, a spoiler review because of the tone (and especially don't read the last sentence).

I've been anticipating this book with the roiling excitement usually reserved for a new Dresden or Kate Daniels book. The first half of the book didn't quite measure up but no worries. The suspense was building and Mark del Franco said in his blog that this was the culmination of the series arc and "Answers Will Be Revealed". Awesome, the rest of the book will be amazing!!
BUT he also said in the blog...questions may not be answered in the way one hopes and that some things are left mysterious. So I know this is the last of the Connor Grey books but not necessarily the series. So I'm also reading the book with a bit of trepidation...hmmm, things answered not as one hoped...hmmm nervous...nah, gotta TRUST the author.
(Excuse me, that sounds familiar...)

Mysterious = Left confused

Culmination of the arc = are you kidding me?

I have so many questions regarding Connor I don't know where to turn. I'm sick of losing sleep over this and I'm really angry that one of the BEST urban fantasy series out there ended like this. I won't recommend this series to anyone anymore!

Because the previous books are that good, I can't bring myself to give this book one star. Mark del Franco is a great writer, but I won't read any more of his work. I invested so much in this series and especially Connor as a beloved character. I didn't expect my investment to end in sorrow and that is unforgivable.

1.0 out of 5 stars so angry! 11 Feb 2012
By Voracious Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have read and enjoyed all of the previous books. Then this one came along with as horrible an ending as the Sopranos. WTF? Is he dead or isn't he? Who are his parents? Did anyone live? What happened to Boston? What kind of lame ending can you slap on a series and get away with it without anyone screaming for blood? Skip this one and make up your own ending to this series. You'll be better off!

3.0 out of 5 stars Readers do get answers, and also major disappointment 15 Feb 2012
By Jem - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was not surprised to see so many middling or outright negative reviews of this book. After finishing it, I was torn between giving it one star, or five. Five stars because readers finally, finally get some concrete answers. We got to see exactly what happened the night Connor lost his abilities; many of the "mysterious" actions of characters like Briallen and Nigel are explained; the faith stone and dark mass are resolved; and Maeve takes center stage. The last third of the book (minus the ending) were exciting and action packed. There are some startling, and really cool, revelations about Connor, Bergen Vize and Convergence. All these factors should have added up to a five star book.

However, I had some serious issues with the book. First, nearly half of the book was recap. I found myself at page 104 and nothing had happened beyond finding a couple dead bodies. Connor spends a lot of time roaming around the Tangle, telling the reader what had come before. He doesn't DO anything but move from one location to another. Every pivotal event was recalled, and the state of his personal relationships with anyone of consequence. It felt like the author didn't trust the audience to have read the prior five books. When the storyline does kick in, it goes at breakneck speed, resolving pretty much every plotline, right up to a cliffhanger "King Arthur" conclusion that leaves the entire world and nearly all the characters in doubt. Someone compared this to the Sopranos ending. Nope. It was far worse. Sure, we didn't know if Tony lived or died, but you knew what happened to everyone else. Not so here.

I hadn't read anything about this being the last Connor Grey novel, as mentioned by other reviewers. If there is more to come, I would not hesitate to give this book 4 stars and preorder the next one as soon as it appears. I do not mind a cliffhanger, and this one is a doozy, if what comes next is still on the horizon. If this is, indeed, the last - I'd give this book one star and not recommend the entire series to anyone. This "conclusion" wasn't just disappointing, it felt like a betrayal (the kind that keeps you from reading more by an author). Since I'm unsure, I went down the middle and gave it three stars. Recommended, but with grave reservations.

1.0 out of 5 stars Whew. I'm glad I'm not alone. INCOMPREHENSIBLE BOOK. 11 Feb 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This book couldn't have been more confusing if it were written in Aramaic. WOW. Great series of books then... this.

Whatever the author was thinking did not translate. I thought it was just me. Glad to see I'm not losing my marbles.

If you need closure to the series... good luck to you. Cause I read it, and then RE-read the last 1/2 and I've got nothing.
