This is one trilogy I DID NOT WANT TO END!!! The Taking books have given me emotional journeys, and I love all of the characters. Even Zeus, but only because of how awful he can truly be.
Ari shows just how strong she can be, both emotionally and physically. She gets thrown into circumstances that she has no way to prepare for. I love that she always does what she thinks is best and doesn’t second guess herself or ask questions. And Jackson, well, he’s just plain swoony. He supports Ari, and that’s one of the things I’ve always loved about his character.
There are a few action scenes, but the most intense ones include Zeus. That guy know no bounds when it comes to screwing with Ari. He’s constantly trying to break her. He’s the perfect villain. At times you kind of understand his motivation, but basically he’s just bad.
As sad as I am to say goodbye to these characters, I’m beyond happy with how it ended.
