UnDivided by Neal Shusterman (#4 of the UnWind Dystology)

It's hard to believe that it has been six years since I wrote the review for UnWind. When UnWholly came out, I felt that a sequel was unnecessary, but after reading it, I was singing the Shusterman praises. UnSouled was a disappointment. Not because of the writing, but because it was supposed to be the last book of a trilogy and became the third book of a dystology (whatever the heck that is). I was screaming! And now, we have UnDivided, the final book of the series.

UnDivided is one of the best written, best conceived, and most satisfying final book of a series that I have read (including Potter). The way Shusterman weaves the story, manipulating the reader, without ever giving a clue as to where the story is going is masterful. The ending is quite satisfying, but probably not what you'd expect. There are small tidbits from past books woven into the story that remind the reader what the entire journey has been (seven years is a looooong time).
I am not going to go into the storyline, just read the book. All the characters will be back, with a few new ones that are quite sinister. Sit back, and enjoy a truly outstanding ending to a fantastic science fiction series that leaves much to ponder and discuss.
