    Thrilled to have the final installment but lamenting the fact that this AMAZING series is overWOW How do I review this book without giving anything away?How can I go back and read it all over again – for the first timeHow do I even begin to tell you what this book meant to me what this series meant to me? KE Ganshert is an incredibly amazingly beautifully gifted author She writes stories in a way that makes you feel as if you're living them She writes worlds as if there is no other She writes characters in such a way that it feels as though you're reading yourself You slip into the character's skin as easily as you slip into a pool of water I fully expect to look up and see Rosie sitting across from me with those puppy dog eyes begging for the rest of my dinner But the best thing about this series Unlike many YA dystopian speculative and supernatural novels on the market today it does not erase hope It does not give us a bleak outlook of a world where we have to lose almost everything to win or a world where only by stripping us down to almost nothing can we surviveThe Gifting series GIVES us hope It gives us hope for tomorrow hope for today hope for foreverI do not recommend many of the YA series that are so popular today but I feel very strongly that this is a series EVERYONE should readAnd by the way I receive a lot of books free in exchange for an honest review Not this one this was a book I purchased Actually it was pre ordered for me by my AWESOME mom because I was so frantic to read it ASAP – which you can see I have done

    I loved this series so much I did something I've actually never done before Immediately reread the first book I just wasn't ready to say goodbye The Gathering brought a perfect end to the Gifting series and yet I found that I was still very attached to the story and characters after it was over I was emotional just knowing that a friend was reading that part Well done I can't wait to see what's next

    Elouent and driven teen supernatural that sadly lost its go juice in this final instalmentAfter blazing through the first two books and being hopelessly suckered by those gripping cliffhangers I was than a little disappointed by the loss of pace halfway through 'The Gathering' Perhaps it held its appeal for a younger audience however the midway point sadly seemed to lack in the same fluidity and creative energy as the two previous novels Overall it left a feeling of 'empty space' at times desperately clamouring at ideas that in places ignited a glimmer of hope that things would return to the action packed storyline readers had come to expect from Ganshert's writing That glimmer sadly was often that not uickly extinguishedAdditionally descriptions of protagonist Tess' feelings towards Luka also seemed tired and repetitive without any notably substantial development of the characters' relationshipAll the same a fascinating concept and overall The Gifting is a refreshingly well constructed series for YA fiction

    I loved this whole series I don't write reviews ever and I should do but you know a busy life my uiet reading time then after a book you just move to the next one Its no excuse and I apologise to all the amazing authors out there who i have taken their stories and not thanked I found the first book free I'm not YA I'm a British 45 year old and I was hooked The writing is amazing sometimes a book can be over long or over described but this was perfect I want to care about the characters and boy did I I bought the next 2 books and read the whole lot over a week I love the idea that these normal people can save the world but very human doubts and fears can stop that I also found the idea of using a sometimes taboo of mental illness in the book very refreshingThis last book didn't disappoint I can't believe that so much was in one book If you like this genre try it and love it

    Mild to moderate spoilers ahead but I'm not going to give away the endingThis review is really kind of a commentary on this entire series I started reading The Gifting Book 1 because it was free and I was trying not spend a million dollars a week on ebooks It sucked me in even though it's a young adult book and there's a romance element The TwilightHunger Games type of love triangles have really started to wear on me I'm sick of it But I liked the premise I like the idea of a dystopian world that's still very similar to our own At first the idea of fetal modification to cure women of their defective fetuses and the society's plan to do away with the mentally ill by making mental illness illegal was very interesting I also liked the idea of a society that essentially worships science and has made the supernatural taboo The special abilities of the protagonists were also captivating I liked the idea of not only having people who have the ability to see the supernatural but people who have specific ways of interacting with the supernatural through dreams or otherwise They can use these abilities to save others All of that sounded great except for two problemsThere are two issues with this book series in my opinion1 The writer borrows from other stories A LOT There are characters in this series that I can clearly make out who they are in the Hunger Games Rosie is Rue Link is Finnick Luka is Peeta and Tess is Katniss duh Cap is Boggs There's even a character named Cressida in this series And there's one in the Hunger Games Come onCressida? Really? I mean that's not exactly a common name Not to mention to the fact that there's also a Joanna who happens to be Tess's roommate much like how Joanna later became Katniss's roommate in the Hunger Games I also found a little Harry Potter nod in here when the name on Tess's fake ID is Lily Evans Harry's mother's name Maybe that's a coincidence but there's to the argument that this story is derivative AF I really thought that the man with the scars on his face whom she refers to as Scarface seemed extraordinarily like the villains in Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere There were just so many parallels to other works by established authorsThe story follows the same general arc as The Hunger Games with the first book building a world and revealing the evils of it The second book is a rallying cry to get others to join the fight The third book is the big battle There's even a District 13 in the Gifting Series It's called Newport RI and it's just like The Hunger Games a city that has been destroyed but the media is not reporting the truth about it It becomes the homebase for their army again just like in The Hunger GamesAt the point when Luka which even rhymes with Peeta becomes injured and there are going to be ramifications to that I wondered for a minute if he was going to be brainwashed or hijacked as Peeta was but he wasn't It's still essentially the same thing though Luka becomes unable to protect Tess for a period of time due to his injuries same as Peeta The word hijacked means something different in the Gifting Series but it also becomes a big part of the narrative The writer couldn't even come up with a new word But I think I've proven my case that these books are a Hunger Games knock off which sucks because I honestly thought they are fairly well written if you can get past all of Tess's mooning over the perfection of the boy It's constant You also have to get over her constant self deprecating inner monologue where she doubts her beauty her coolness her strength everything She just can't believe that this perfect boy has any interest in herHere's the second problem with the series2 It's religiousconservative propaganda I suspected it when the element of fetal modification was brought in It sounded sorta like this author was saying that abortion is a sign of the end times Then when she said that the second amendment had been revoked and now all the guns were only had by the military police and criminals I knew there was some right wing propaganda in here Looking at the fact that this entire story is essentially an argument that when you take God out of the picture bad things happen you can easily see it for what it is I was able to disregard this conservative agenda pushing in the same way that I can with CS Lewis and his Chronicles of Narnia which is one of the most blatantly religious stories of all time However some may not find that so easy Just to be clear I'm not making this leap about this being religious propaganda without doing a bit of research into it The author thanks her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in the author's notes and also her books are available through Christian book websites This is not necessarily a problem for everyone People who are religious andor conservative would probably appreciate that element I am a agnostic super liberal feminist so that part is never going to appeal to me but I do appreciate a good storyAnd in closing this IS a good story The problem is that it's a story that's been done before I liked the characters It was a compelling and uick read Well written and interesting I just wish it had been original and less obvious that so many elements were borrowed

review The Gathering Gifting #3

Only she could convince the other members of the hub They're not sure Tess saw what she claims she saw And they're preoccupied by the fact that their kind is being systematically eradicated Answers lie in an ancient prophecy one that revolves around a seve.
