Synopsis from Goodreads:
After narrowly surviving two harrowing tragedies, Jules now fully understands the importance of the visions that she and people around her are experiencing. She’s convinced that if the visions passed from her to Sawyer after she saved him, then they must now have passed from Sawyer to one of the people he saved.
That means it’s up to Jules to figure out which of the school shooting survivors is now suffering from visions of another crisis. And once she realizes who it is, she has to convince that survivor that this isn't all crazy—that the images are of something real. Something imminent.
As the danger escalates more than ever before in the conclusion to the Visions series, Jules wonders if she'll finally find out why and how this is happening—before it's too late to prevent disaster.
Gasp is the third and final book in the Visions series, and it's just as wonderful and enjoyable as the first two. I really can't believe that this is the final book. I've become so attached to these characters that I don't want their story to be over yet!
For me, what has made this such an excellent series is the characters. I could go on and on about how awesome they are. I love the siblings and their everyday interactions because they felt so real to me. I loved all of the inside jokes, the endless witty banter, and their quirky personalities.
Jules was such a strong character and so easy to like. She was willing to takes risks and she was so eager to help everyone, even complete strangers. I have totally adored Trey since his very first scene in the first book, and I don't think I'll ever get over him. He was such a great character to read about, and he was a good friend and brother. He was lovely and all around awesome to me. I'm glad little sister Rowan played a larger part in this story. She really grew up over the course of this series, and she stepped up and did her share to help out this time around. Sawyer got more and more awesome over time, and he turned into such a thoughtful and wonderful character. He's also cute and adorable and makes a great book boyfriend. A new addition is Trey's friend, Ben, who was carried over from the second book. He was solid and reliable and such a good guy. I couldn't help but love him too.
Gasp is fast paced, action packed, and full of friendships and romance. It was thrilling and suspenseful and a quick read for me because I couldn't put it down. I have to admit that the entire Visions trilogy has been so enjoyable to me. I really can't recommend it enough. It has great writing, wonderful dialogue, and a terrific cast of very diverse characters. Each book has a fresh take on the visions, so the surprises in the plot never stop coming. I didn't know how this was all going to end, but I thought the conclusion was well played.
How many times have I used the word 'awesome' in this review? I actually don't think I can say it enough! You just need to read this series and find out for yourselves how great it really is!
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
