Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (3 ):

Fans of the series will find everything they love and could hope for in this funny, intense, final installment. Except maybe the fact that Any Way the Wind Blows is indeed the final installment. Secrets are revealed and circles are closed in an ending that's both satisfying and not satisfying at the same time. New questions arise and new circles are formed, too, that readers will have to imagine possibilities for themselves.

Just like in Wayward Son, the well-established characters banter wittily and experience emotions intensely. Intriguing new characters, discoveries, mysteries, and deepening romance keep the pages turning. As the characters mature, the romance and sex becomes more intense and explores more mature themes. That and the strong language make it best for older teens and up.
