Synopsis:

Three years. So much has changed for Yara, yet much is still the same.

Yara has spent the last three years in Brazil, diligently studying with Vovó to develop her Waker abilities and desperately searching for a cure for Brent. Though her powers—and her control over them—have grown, every possible cure for Brent fails. And they’re running out of the only medicine that keeps him alive.

When a letter from the American Wakers recalls Yara and Vovó to California, Yara has to weigh the fading chance of saving Brent against the dangers of placing them all within the grasp of an old enemy. Not only has his power grown, but the barrier between our world and the spirit world is becoming dangerously thin. As the threat to the Wakers increases, Yara doesn’t know if she’ll be strong enough to defeat him.

Her only hope is to put her trust in some unexpected allies and fully embrace her Waker heritage. If she fails, not only could Brent die, but the power of the Wakers could disappear forever.

I really liked Inevitable. I read the first two books more than two years ago, and since I rated the first one five stars and the second one four, you can say I've been anxious to read the conclusion of the series. While I didn't enjoy this book as much as the other two, I still thought it was a pretty good ending to a really well done trilogy.

WHAT I LIKED

One of my favorite parts of this book is its big focus on friendship and family. It was a very important aspect of the story, and Yara's friends and family had a constant presence throughout. That part balanced well with the romance, which was as good as in Intrinsical and Indelible. Brent and Yara made a really good couple--they had good chemistry and were able to work through their rough patches.

I also loved the concepts and ideas involved in the story. The ghosts, the manipulation of the elements, the twists, the conflicts in the Waker world . . . they were really interesting and kept me interested in what was going on.

I want to point out that this series has some culture in it. The main character and her family are Brazilian, which I don't see often in books. It was just something that I really liked to see in this book. 

WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE

The story seemed a bit repetitive in some places. I wasn't seeing that much variety in the events that were occurring. Ceremonies, ghost attacks, and revelations/twists were what I saw the most of. There was also a lot of events where a character's illness was highlighted.

Another thing I didn't like that much was a lot of the dialogue. It had a bit of that badly-acted-movie feel that I really don't like, but it only mildly affected my enjoyment of the story as a whole. 

OVERALL

Inevitable was a solid four-star read for me. It had many focuses, elements, and characters that I really liked, and the parts of the book that I didn't like are small things that many other readers may not have problems with. If you enjoy reading ghost books but haven't tried this series yet, I highly recommend doing so. It's a very well done trilogy that deserves more attention than what it has gotten so far.



I’ve been an avid reader since elementary school . In sixth grade I began writing stories and recruiting (with force when necessary) my  friends to act them out. I’ve always loved scary stories, and have a hard time enjoying any book without at least a little romance in it.

  1. This sounds like a fun series and I'm starting to like books that have friendship and family over the romance oriented ones lately. The concepts with ghosts and elements also sounds really interesting! Great review, Kaitlin!

  4. I totally missed out on this series. In fact, this is probably the first time I'm hearing about it, and boy, how did THAT happen? Your review makes me feel like I should do my best to catch up ASAP. I am a new mom, and stories that revolve around family ties and bonds are currently right up my alley, so I am thinking there's a good chance I'll really love this series, even despite it being repetitive at times. Thanks so much for sharing! :)
