I found this book an excellent read. It was both fast moving and full of detail. Rhiannon Lassiter has managed to keep the reader in plenty of suspense throughout the trilogy, and the finale is wonderful with a startling but satisfying twist at the end. Raven, the main character, is a Hex- a blend of the human mind and computer created by the government. The characters are interesting and well developed. Raven is a well developed character who you feel for, but mysterious enough to not be boring. I felt that this book was well worth reading but advise readers who read this review to buy all three books in the trilogy and read them in order because otherwise they will become confused. I recommend this book particularly to readers who enjoy fantasy and sci-fi and who are aged roughly 12+.

This was one of the best books I have ever read - I read it all in one go, when I should have been working, making the children's tea, sleeping etc. I just could not put it down. All three books were brilliant, but I think this was my favourite one. My main point is they're not just for teenagers - I'm 40 and it was better than anything else I've read in a long time.

Rhiannon Lassiter's has greated a great universe in her Hex series, with a unorthodox main character that isn't exactly likeable, but complex and very interesting. This book and the previous two in the series in highly recommended for readers who like sci-fi, and since the first book was written when the author was 17, it is especially interesting for young adults.

This brings the story to the end, and also a tear to the eye. The end is so original that you could never see it coming. It carrys on where hex:shadows left on, giving even more depth to raven and the group, you will have to read it till the end before you can put it down.
ITS THE BEST BOOK I'VE EVER READ!
