Austin Valley appears as it always has, but Em Fuller knows that appearances aren’t what they seem. She knows under the surface, that cracks are starting to form in this seemingly well-manicured society. She’s responsible for creating these cracks and for planting a slow dissension among many of the residents of this once happy city. Broken in a way Em never thought possible, she turns into a well-calculated, strategic leader. With the help of the brightest minds in Austin Valley, Em begins building an army whose only purpose is to protect the population of Austin Valley from their President, Victor Vider. Em firmly believes the success of her army is inevitable, that is until a new blow strikes her heart and she questions whether she has the tenacity to go on.
A thrilling end to a great series. I really enjoyed seeing how one person can go from shouldering all the weight of the world and the tragedies that she had no control over, to letting friends help her. No one can hold the burden of guilt by themselves and Sarah Noffke shows that really well in Warriors. Once Em decides to accept help, she is able to be a better leader. Character development is on par in Warriors. I loved seeing everyone rise to the occasion and do what they must for freedom or for each other.
Another thing I enjoyed, was seeing what abilities each new dream traveler had. Especially since Em is a leech, we were able to see more dream traveller abilities than ever. It was awesome!
I love Zach. He is such a sweetheart. I said that in a previous review, but I am happy that he can finally let go and be happy. (Is that a spoiler? No…I think we’re good)
Now, the hardest part about finishing a great series…getting over it and finding something new!
