Review by crashmyparty
SERIES COMPLETE. I am finished. Done. I never have to read these books again and I never will!Some spoilersWhere to begin? I finished reading Rapture last night and before you say anything about me finishing it in a day (I know it looks bad!) I had about 3 and a half hours of train travel yesterday and by the time I got home I was almost finished so I just stayed up to knock it out and be done with it. The problem is, as I closed the book, I didn't know how I felt.Was I glad it was over? Yeah, definitely.Had I picked the ending and the major reveals? Yeah, in book three.Was there a happy ending? Of course there was.Was my little heart a little happy with the happy ending? YES AND I HATE MYSELF.I have done nothing but complain about this series the whole way through. I know that. Believe me, I know how much I have not enjoyed reading it this time around. I did like it, five years ago. Which is why I started back at the start and decided to see it the whole way through. When I realise I didn't like it, I still wanted to finish it and be done with it. And considering how much I did not like this series (and still don't), I was surprised at how I felt with the happy ending.I can't help it. I am a SUCKER for happy endings and the everyday love story. I hated the 'big reveal', I knew it was coming, and I felt it was way too easy. I was still not satisfied with the explanation of how Luce and Daniel fell in love the first time. And I couldn't believe that this whole thing was pretty much about a lovers' spat. But (view spoiler) I hated the dialogue between Lucifer and Lucinda and the way he was portrayed - Lucifer is such an awesome character because the dude is so EVIL. There is so much you can do with that. But nope. In this story, Lucifer is a jealous guy who just can't get over some stuff that happened thousands of years ago (trying to go no spoilers here). I get that there is an underlying message of free will here, but it felt overshadowed by all the "I love you!" "I love him!" stuff.I got bored quite a few times through this book in particular. It still had clumsy phrases, Luce was still stupid, there was a lot of mythology. I don't know if the fact that I'm an atheist may have impacted the way I felt about the mythology, because I just couldn't believe in it. I know its fiction but while I'm in that world, I should believe. I did love the fact that God was a woman, though. But I don't agree with adoration of the Creator for the simple reason that they created you. Be thankful, yes, but its like parents making you bow down to them for your whole life. At some point, you want to leave to spread your wings (bad analogy, yes). I guess that's the free will they're talking about.
