I have finally finished reading Allied the last book in the Ruined trilogy by Amy Tintera. I say finally because it took me close to a month to finish it. I am not even sure why. Well, that being said let’s get into the actual review.
I will start off by saying that this book is told from multiple perspectives. The other books in this trilogy were also told from multiple POV but in this case, it was more POV than the other books so it took me a while to get into it. Also, the POV will change mid-chapter so I would have to adjust to the new POV quickly. Another thing is that Allied wasn’t as action-packed as the first two books. There was a lot of planning happening in this. That being said, once the action started it really had me at the edge of my seat. There was one point where a plan was about to be executed and I was really nervous to see how it would work out as well as how the characters would react.
Some of the things that I really enjoyed about Allied was, of course, seeing the interactions between Em and Cas because cute! Also, it was really interesting seeing Olivia’s development because in not so many words she is crazy! Anytime she did or said something I was thinking ” Wow! This girl is insane!” Olivia is very stubborn and it was really intriguing to see how her stubbornness affected her fate at the end.
Now let’s talk a little bit about August. August…wow he is such an idiot! It was fun to read what he said and did because he is an idiot. The way that he thinks and blames others for things that occurred because of his actions is just baffling. August is a good character because when you see that he thinks and does you are just thinking “seriously dude?”.
All in all, I think this was a really good conclusion to the trilogy. I gave Allied 3 stars out of 5, it lost two stars because I was looking for a bit more from it. Like I said I did really enjoy the experience I had reading Allied. If you have not read this trilogy yet please do! It is a fun adventure. Let me know in the comments if you have read this trilogy and your thoughts on it.
Until next time book nerds,
