Obsidio* by Amie Kauffman and Jay Kristoff

March 26, 2018

A huge thank-you to the darlings over at Rock the Boat for sending this my way. I got a message whilst waiting for the train home from work, I proceeded to dance and cry on a train platform... You could say I was somewhat excited.

I will also never stop thanking Fi for finally pushing me to read this series. It's become one of my favourites and Obsidio was the icing on the cake. In the previous two books we follow two sets of characters, one per book. I was both scared and excited to see how Obsidio tied them together and wrapped the series up. It was perfect. I cried. I laughed. I screamed. Everything was perfect. I'm just sad now that there's no more of this world.

In Obsidio we follow another two characters as well as our original teams, I'm avoiding saying their names for spoilers but my god. I'm not sure who my favourite pair is anymore...

Now for the spoilers.

**SPOILERS AHEAD SPOILERS AHEAD**

Now, let's really talk.

Oh my god. Asha Grant is alive and kicking ass. I adore her. The role she played in this book was fantastic. The way she looked after Katya was precious and finding out her back story made it all the sweeter. She was a very conflicted character, both not wanting to trust her newly arrived ex-boyfriend and Beitech engineer but also wondering if the boy she loved was still in there. Spoiler - he was. Rhys Lindstrom of the gravity defying quiff. One of the most fantastic characters everrrrrr. The notes passed between them was such a clever idea both for the story and also visually on the page. He too, was a very conflicted character. Stuck between obeying orders as he'd been trained and being true to his conscience.

I don't think I've had heart palpitations like this since Morning Star. When Ezra and Nik's Chimera blew up I wept. I was in an absolute state. Then I realised. THE PARACHUTE. Nik is the hero we didn't know we needed. I cried again but because I was laughing.

Kady and Hanna really stepped up in this book and showed the 'adults' that their age didn't mean they were incapable of leading, nor did it negate the fact that each of them managed to save hundreds and thousands of people.

Once again the plot was just phenomenal. Across the entire series the pacing and plot of these books has been second to none. I can't think of any other series that has had me sat needing to read and wishing I could read quicker because I needed to know what was going on. From when Ben Garver mutinied and took out Syria Boll and then when Katya was shot. I couldn't flip the pages fast enough.

This series is phenomenal.
