At this point, I’ll settle for Atriya just being healthy. I’ll forget about the whole being happy and healthy as long as he can be healthy! Not only was I stressing about Atriya’s physical and mental health I was also on a(pretty fun) roller-coaster ride of intense fights followed by calming lulls the whole time. Normally I’m not a huge fan of when books switch perspectives(I’m usually trying to hurry up reading so I can get back to the person’s perspective I like better) but for some reason, I quite liked it switching between Atriya and Verus. I think that might be because I found it really funny when Atriya was super confused about the psychic things happening to him but as the reader, we of course know what’s going on since we get both perspectives. I’m pretty sure I caught myself whispering “I know something you don’t know”, which is always amusing.
Atriya is also quickly becoming one of my favorite characters. He’s got that whole badass with a heart of gold thing going for him and I of course can’t forget the newly white hair. I will fully admit that I am a huge sucker for white hair, especially when it wasn’t white before! You give a character who was already great with normal hair, white hair and they become amazing to me. That’s just one of my little superficial moments when I’m reading a book. But on my last and non-superficial note the epilogue for this book hit me so hard in the feels. All of a sudden I found myself crying and in turn that makes me very excited about how this series is going to end. So, I think this book definitely deserves a 9 out of 10.

Love that you love it! I had a blast finally getting Atriya in the exo-suit, and though the movie doesn’t quite check all the boxes, the theme for pacific rim makes me feel like an excited kid again. Next book goes full-on existential—I hope you enjoy it! 😊
I’ve already started volume 4 and can’t wait to see what happens!
Congratulations, its style is something where you can create a great action movie with.
