My Review

Although I'm incredibly sad (and I'm sure you are too) that this is the last book for Kate and Jared and all of the other lovable characters in Wood's Second Sight series, I can guarantee that the conclusion will leave you satisfied. Heather Topham Wood knows how to write a good story and memorable characters.

The Final Omen begins right where the last book left off. We get even more answers to Kate's visions and how they came about. 

Kate is just as awesome and just as snarky in this novel, not to mention very clever. Jared acts a little out of character making me uneasy here and there, but given the circumstances it's understandable. In the end I still love him. Declan is just as much of an awesome jerk as ever and Kate's mom is still sweet.

There are a lot of little surprises in this installment. Wood does a great job with the mystery story line of trying to figure out who Kate's attacker is. We also get some romance and friendship scenes which really round out the feel of the whole book. It satisfied all my bookish cravings.

Although The Final Omen was a little too short for my tastes, I felt like it could have been even better if it were longer, I liked that it was a quick read. Once you start you won't want to put it down. 

If you have yet to read this series you really should. If you are already a fan then don't put it off any longer and grab yourself a copy of The Final Omen. Did I mention that the first book in the series, First Visions, is currently on sale on amazon for only 99 cents?! Well it is. So what are you waiting for? This is a unique New Adult novel. I can't say that it's the best well written novel ever, but I can say that it's a darn good story worth discovering.
