Our Review:

Shel: I think I start off every post about Ketley Allison like this: "Poor Ketley, I've been harassing her via Twitter for days/weeks about the next installment of this series"..and it's true. At least once a week I'd go to Twitter to remind her that I desperately needed answers. She was so patient and kind and gracious and I'm forever grateful that she found us and loved us enough to humor us. Court: And here I am finalllly finishing this installment forever and a day later. But yes. That. Ketley is great. And this book is great. And I am gushy and grateful. 

Shel: Enough of my gushing about Ketley, let's get down to business..the ending of the series. After the last book, I was on edge--WHO DID IT?!!! My theories ranged from logical to fantastical and everywhere in between and now that I know the answer...all I can say is...I KNEW IT. (even though I didn't). There was one scene in the very beginning of this series that always stuck with me as off and based on that, I had a tiny sliver of hope that I knew who was behind all of this..and I suppose 'hope' is the wrong word here..but there were certain characters I absolutely DID NOT want it to be. (I'm not making much sense here, am I?!). Let me just stop my weird rambling to say that I completely love how Ketley did this....even if I hate that it had to go down like it did. Court: NO. I completely agree. I am so sad and elated, and mad and in awe...and I just seriously cannot believe how everything went down, but I am so glad that a) we got allllllll of the answers to allllllll of our questions in this final part of the SNAPPED series by Ketley Allison, but b) I DIDN'T KNOW IT EITHER, but I too hoped that things would turn out the way that they did...but even different...because I am a sucker for days for certain things, and I am hanging on to those bitter feelings until the bitter end. And I'm not making sense...but you'll have to read it and THEN you can ask me what I mean. 

Shel: This series is without a doubt one of my all time favorite serial reads. Ketley's writing and plotting and characterization and pacing were engrossing and had me begging for more after each installment. I cannot recommend this series highly enough and I cannot wait to see what she produces next. Please don't make us wait too long, Ketley! Court: Too true. The writing in this story is fast paced brilliance that had me hanging on to every word. There is truth to the feelings evoked, and I find that hard to do, especially in a novella serial...but I think that it came across beautifully, and the suspense was top notch. I hope that more people read this, and that Ketley goes far, and keeps writing, because she is so damn good at it! LOVE Snapped. Read it! Now. I demand it.
