GLENS FALLS: BOOK THREE BY MALYNDA SCHLEGEL - BOOK REVIEW

This has been a fun series to follow along with, there is a lot going on, but I've enjoyed following the characters' stories.

Hello everyone!

I am back with another book review, Glens Falls: Book Three by Malynda Schlegel. Thanks so much to the author for sending me a copy of this book for an honest review, as always, all opinions are my own.



The story picks up pretty soon after the second book ended. I'm not going to get too far into the synopsis because this is a sequel but I will say that we are following the same characters as before, Wesley and his sister Alexia, Travis and his best friend Connor, Breanne, and Isaac. We also get some cameos from other characters, including some of the parents, as well as some new additions to the story as well.

In terms of writing style, I really enjoyed how Schlegel has laid out the story. There are multiple chapters in the book, but within each of those chapters are snippets of the story from different perspectives. It's something that has been unique to this series, and I've really enjoyed seeing Schlegel's development of this technique over the books. This book seemed to flow better in terms of the writing and I really enjoyed that aspect of it.

Character-wise, there are some characters I like and others that I don't. Alexia still gets on my nerves but I'm beginning to understand her and her emotions a little bit better. I think Travis is still my favourite - he's just goofy and funny without taking things too seriously. I think there are enough of different kinds of characters that readers can easily find ones that they prefer over others and each character has their own distinct personality - something that is hard to achieve in a book with this many 'main' characters.

This is one of those books - or really series - that is largely character-driven. The focus is more on the characters themselves than the storyline and plot. I know some people don't love books like that but as I said, each of the characters is unique from one another and that helps keep things interesting.

The only real setback I had with the book was the plot twist toward the end and the cliff-hanger ending itself. The plot twist felt a bit unnecessary to the story and while it sets up the need for a book four, I was under the impression that this was only a trilogy, so I wasn't expecting the need to set up another book. I don't necessarily dislike how things were left off but I think I was just surprised and not expecting it.

Overall, another good addition to a fun series and I'm looking forward to seeing what happens in book four!
