    Actual rating 1.5 stars While the first two books were just not that good this book WAS HORRIBLE It annoyed the hell out of me and here s a list of reasons why because I m just that good the writing gets SO REPETITIVE The characters keep mentioning stuff we already went through and discussed and let s not forget about the nicknames he literally calls her his match girl 52 FREAKING TIMES.IN LESS THAN 250 PAGES She s no better, she keeps calling him her tin soldier through Actual rating 1.5 stars While the first two books were just not that good this book WAS HORRIBLE It annoyed the hell out of me and here s a list of reasons why because I m just that good the writing gets SO REPETITIVE The characters keep mentioning stuff we already went through and discussed and let s not forget about the nicknames he literally calls her his match girl 52 FREAKING TIMES.IN LESS THAN 250 PAGES She s no better, she keeps calling him her tin soldier throughout the book even though they a have names b know what they are c have already called each other by their first names plenty of times before so why go back to something you did in the first book when you didn t know each other remember that polar bear that s mentioned barely in the first book and then we never hear of it again Well, it s back, but just for a couple of pages so it can help the MCs get out of an impossible situation deus ex machinayay before IT DISAPPEARS FOREVER, AGAIN the main villain is SO.DUMB He literally has these 2 idiots who are trying to stop his evil plans in his hands and instead of shooting them right away, he is playing ridiculous mind games with his soldiers and basically stalling just enough so, once again, the MCs can be saved by a third person who wasn t even mentioned once before even though there are like a million soldiers pointing guns at them, the MCs manage to do basically anything they want escape, fight back and eventually overpower all of them and do whatever they wanted in the first place the fact that there are 3chapters after everything has been resolved the world saved that contain NOTHING except the MCs saying they love each other in 2924720 different ways WHY If it were just the one, like an epilogue of sorts where theyfinallyconfess their feelings and we see the HEA or whatever, it d be fine BUT WHY ARE THERE MORE Like the first one wasn t cringey enough

really grateful to be part of NOS street team.4.5 StarsWhat s in the book With the beginning of year 2525, Felix completes the work of clock master Reveal his finding of the One World and Chairman, bring forward the truth And proves that loss of the person who tried to save the world was not in vain.The clock that was meant to be symbol of peace will begin the war What will happen when Felix tells the truth to the world This book starts literally at climax It was damn hard to write review on the book that itself is climax Plus I just read it through and through without stopping to note down the point You will feel all the thrill and shrill that you can expect from the climax in just 2 3 part of this book The books was about understanding the true meaning of love, sacrifice, and humanity It also showed the consequences of war and power greed Characters Felix and Astra were so amazing in this book These words totally defines them Natural, emotional, smart, sensible, and sensitive, sense of right and wrong, most important ability to love It s hard not to love these two beautiful souls of the book They are my favorite One True Pairing now.Ursa Polar Bear my favorite character from the first installment I can t tell you guys how happy I was to see her in the book again She was such a brilliant creature in the book and the timing of her entry was so unexpected and super cool So if you guys loved this bear in the first book, I m sure you don t want to miss this one.Karim This dude is taking place in my heart He was awesome in this book All his actions and dialogues were coolest Specially that one when he explained why he came to help Felix.What I liked Coverrrrrrrr any doubts This whole series has awesomest, most beautiful cover.Characterrrr Isn t that obvious after what I told you about characters.Authorrrrrrrr for writing this icy cool, speedy, captivating, action packed installment.And of course concept of creative dystopian world and the way it was told in 3 parts this last part made the perfect end of the series Book starts with the end of the second book First chapter first page gave the brief idea who was Felix and what he did in the first 2 books So whoever in case forgot the story, can recall all events Writing was captivating from the beginning, it felt like coming from a storyteller This first chapter would sound most spellbinding one in the audio book, I bet.I loved the way Felix planned to disclose the truth It was risky and stupid yet brilliant and simple Reunion of Felix and Astra was so romantic I was reading the whole scene with goofy smile plastered on my face It was pretty amazing how two totally different person grown up in the world where even touching a woman considered crime fell in love and started a fire in the world In this book only I truly got the meaning of character s name Match Girl and Tin soldier.This book will be the cause of arrhythmia I had so many irregular heartbeat while reading this book and I almost forgot how many times I missed my heartbeat All the tension and action in the first half of the book was so trilling, exciting and was so unpredictable It was like the winning flag constantly slipping from hero to enemy, and back and forth.First half the story was narrated by Felix When I thought this book was seeing its early end, there came unexpected twist Good lord What a twist And the narration was switched to match girl from this point on There was few new revelation as well Astra s bravery was most surprising in the second half.Development of Felix and Astra by the end of the book, their understanding for the war, sacrifice, and love was remarkable Best thing was whole that portion where title of the book was justified Those words by 3 characters in 3 different meaning from their perspective one as a disappointment, another for sacrifice and third understanding those sacrifices was most beautiful and was just perfect.This was the fastest book I ever read, best one sitting book I thought to take this book on vacation but ended up reading in one day before leaving for vacation.End I was not expecting the end at this point It was open ended but there is no hint of next book series or epilogue So I was just guessing what might have happened I just hope author decide to write sequel of this series.That half star I cut because there is No epilogue I wanted to readI was expecting at least hint for what happened next Overall, this installment was full of action and surprises, twist and turns, perfect YA romance and unique last book of icy dystopian world

    Tin Soldier Match Girl have made a place in my heart Lets just take a moment to observe how gorgeous the cover is I confess that it was the cover which drew me to this book and I m just glad that the story was just as promising as the cover depicts I m a big hoarder of books where the guy ends up being vocal about his feelings for the girl and Felix Hunter said just the things that made my toe curl and made me want to be Aster.
