AWESOME! AWESOME! I loved this conclusion in this series. It answered all the questions that were raised in the 2nd book and explained so much that did not make sense in the 1st book. Augustus, what he went through...WOW! His story certainly reminded me that everything we see and think we know about someone, more often than not is not the case at all. This book had my heart stopping a few times concerning the Morins and Nobles. The ending and even well before that when Augustus was explaining things to Brandon (his grandson) I was teary eyed. If you read these books as stand alones you will be able to follow each story, but if you follow the series it makes for a much much richer conclusion. I highly recommend this read.
