I Am Alice

I must be brave.

I must do what has to be done.

I am Alice.

I feel like I say this every time, but I am conflicted about this book. On one hand, I loved it. Alice is BAD ASS, and yet holds on to her morals. And I love her. On the other hand, I feel like the last…3 books have all been fillers because Delaney isn’t sure how to finish the ending of the series as of yet. I had THOUGHT that this was the final book. Surprise…it’s not. Just more filler. But it’s KICK ASS filler.

In this book Alice leap frogs through time. We get more of her back story, what she endured before she met Tom, and we also get to see how she gets the final sword needed in the Dark. Lots of enemies, in the Dark, and there is nary a dull moment. With the rapidly approaching end of the series, Alice has extended herself as far as she can go to the brink of losing her soul.

Though I was disappointed to learn that this was not the end of the series, I loved this book. Delaney’s style of writing crosses the divide between age groups, and the plots are highly diverting. Anyone from 8+ would love this series. I Am Alice deserves 5 stars. I cannot wait to find out what will happen to Alice and Tom. Need the thirteenth book. Now.
