Oblivion by Kelly Creagh was a dark, twisted, must-read YA novel.
I’m heart broken because I’m pretty sure this novel was the finale of this series. While I hope Kelly Creagh continues this universe on into more books, I highly doubt she will due to the way the story ended. There were still many questions left to be answered, and there were still many moments readers wanted to and probably will never see.
I wanted way more of Varen in this book. Everyone I spoke to about this book (within my friend circle) all complained about the lack of Varen – and this didn’t get cleared up in this novel. He was a major part of this story, and he was just lacking. I adore his characters, and he’s one of my top YA male characters out there – he’s different, not your normal romantic interest, and he’s darker than the average character. So I loved him, and my heart was left to be shattered.
Kelly Creagh’s writing is memorizing, and I demand more novels by her!! She’s one of the few authors that can write in such a dark tone and yet be incredibly addicting. She’s not scary, she’s alluring with her writing!!
Her take on Edgar Allen Poe’s story is a great adaption. While seeing every fairy tale be retold over and over, I liked seeing a take on another great work. His dark poems were woven perfectly into this trilogy and novels, and I highly suggest people pick it up!!! Kelly deserves the support!!
Overall, I loved this series. It’s sad to see this series end, but the bittersweet feelings will go away when I see another fantastic title by Kelly Creagh end up on book shelves.
Five out of five stars.
