"4.5. So good, especially the ending. I like a time jump if it makes sense and the ending just added something for me. It makes sense that the Republic and the Colonies didn’t exactly merge into the U.S. just made a tenuous peace with one another. I definitely prefer this to the second book, but I love the series as a whole."
"I -Almost- cried at the end. Almost. I took a few days reading this book instead of binge reading it like the first two because of school, but that just made me more connected with the characters. I think this book was better than the first one tbh. All three of them were so so good. I have to give it 5/5⭐ I usually don't give that out unless I can't find like any faults in a book, and I can't think of a single one. Definitely a must own for me <3"
"Just finished the series. Might’ve cried a tiny bit. Though I have a question for anyone who has read the series. How would you rate the series? How do you feel about the ending of Champion ( last book ) ? And lastly how did Day’s memory loss make you feel? MAKE SURE YOU FINISHED THE SERIES ( Spoilers )"
"The ending! I just have no words. But I loved this series! "
"⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.75 Day and June have my heart. I really enjoyed the first 3 books in this series! It’s pretty fast paced, captivating, and I’m a sucker for some romance. The author was lightly pulling on my heart strings making me feel so many emotions. My only complaint is that some of Junes portions were boring in the middle but that’s politics right? I’m excited for the last book, the last 15% of the book had me tearing off and on and was very emotional for me."
