Review of Fallen
Good because the intrigue is kept until the end. It hooks you and it’s entertaining.
The ending leaves something to be desired, the motivations of the bad guy ruin the plot to some extent making it unbelievable. It’s a bit chaotic from the reader’s point of view, as the reasons why certain lines of inquiry are carried out by the head of the GBI (Georgia Bureau of Investigation) are unknown; in the end it’s comprehensible, but you can lose yourself during the development of the plot.
The best part are the characters, how they’ve evolved since the two previous installments and the internal conflicts they suffer.
