    I thoroughly enjoyed Exodus and Zenith, and eagerly awaited Aurora’s debut for what felt like a lifetime! However, I was slightly disappointed by Aurora.I think Julie Bertagna is a wonderful author: she has created this amazing story and great characters; however it felt to me like the book should have been longer. It almost seemed like the book was originally longer but the editors decided to cut bits out as young readers obviously can’t concentrate for very long.Similarly to the Harry Potter series, I have ‘grown up’ with the books, and for me one of the big problems I had with Aurora was that it hadn’t grown up at all. In fact I almost felt that Julie’s writing style has become younger, perhaps due to the direction the new publishers wanted her to take?I enjoyed reading Aurora, and I gave it 4 stars as I really did like it. I would definitely recommend it, but I would like to put the warning out that if you’re expecting an epic book then this is not it. It’s a warm and fuzzy feel good book, although the ending is fairly open ended. Perhaps we can expect another book at some point in the future!

    Four and a half stars.The divergent strands of Zenith are brought together very neatly in this finale. I was so pleased to see that Clayslaps and Broomielaw did indeed survive. And even that Tuck as the Pontifix is so apparently gentle and compassionate until he is crossed when he becomes calmly and quietly pitiless.The characters are so well drawn - and the world so strange but real. Again the stylistic language gives the storytelling the feel that it's told from the point of view of the 'drowned world' itself.It's fifteen years or so from the events of Zenith: Mara's daughter Lily is the same age as she was when she fled from the skycity of New Mungo. Lily discovers her father is not Rowan, as she has always been led to believe, but Fox.She determines to find him.Fox, meantime, is finally about to launch his revolution. He's got it all planned. But everything is about to change when, in the ruins of the Weave, he discovers his avatar cyberfox has been bound for decades. If Mara ever had come looking for him, she would have never received his message. Then encounters a child who needs his help. Lily: his daughter.

    This is an enchantingly beautiful finish to the Exodus trilogy... Or is it?Some readers may be disappointed, especially if they're all for "Mara and Fox", but if you can overlook this small twist to the novel, you're in for an unputdownable ride.The story follows Lily Longhope's quest to meet the father she's never known about.Readers will be delighted to once again follow the journeys of Mara, Fox, and now Lily. This book is truly exceptional.

    I waited a long time to read the end of Mara and Fox's adventure, and was a bit dissapointed with the end of the book. Things were left undone, and destinies were up int the air for most of the characters... It could have been so awesome...

    I do not know what to say. I started reading Exodus just to take a sneak peak at what our future may hold. Little did I know that I would be plunging into a world filled with dreams amongst destruction and despair. Now I may not be contented by the ending but I think it fits the overall plot. There is no way we can know what is in store for us in the future and the hanging ending wraps that up extremely well.

    I enjoyed the book in itself. However, having waited around 16 years to finish this trilogy, I was rather disappointed by the ending. I feel as though there were many loose ends left untied which could have made a fourth book.

    ending wasn't too shabby, but I was hoping for a better one.

    Aurora is the final book in Julie Bertagna's trilogy of a water destroyed world. It has been many years since the events in Zenith. Mara and her group are settled in the mountains of the north. Fox and Pandora are setting up rebellion in New Mungo and throughout the other skycities. Lily, Fox and Mara's daughter, finds out about her missing father and sets off to find him. This is an enjoyable finale to this series. It finishes up the stories of all our main characters and brings them back together. However, it feels a little disjointed as if the stories are not connected. I am also not a fan of the ending. There is so much set up in the reunion of the characters and then Bertagna leaves us hanging with no reunion scene. I do enjoy the world of these novels though. It is a not-improbable future where the oceans have risen and flooded the world. The remnants of humanity are scattered across the world in boat cities and the highest ground and in skycities created after the world ended.

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and feel that it was a fitting end to the trilogy. I enjoyed the fact that the book looks at the individual journey of multiple characters from the previous books as well as reuniting some of them. As for the lack of a reunion between Fox and Mara I am not as disappointed as I thought I would be. I read a review that told me there was no reunion between the two of them before I started this book, and I thought that this would leave the story feeling unfinished.However, once I finished Aurora I realised this was not the case. The last book finishes the way the first book started; with the weave, Mara, Fox and the unknown possibilities of the future.

    57/100I'll review the entire trilogy in one. I liked the trilogy, its premise and characters. I was gripped enough to read them quickly. At times the pace slowed or the dynamics didn't quite come together. I didn't like how the final book (this one) ended - it dropped many characters, and it's just not quite conclusive enough, even for me, someone who loves open endings. It could do with a further 2-3 chapters, but no more. I hope there is not 4th book because it really only needs a couple more chapters.

    A very satisfying way to a very haunting and perhaps foreseeable future for our planet, this last book in the series brought all the characters together, in an epic way!I just wish there had been the big reunion between Mara and Fox. But I guess, I can dream up my own ending for them as I am positive they are together. Poor Rowan though. Maybe Mara decides to stay with him. I don't think I would like to be in that position - having to choose between two such men!

    The narration in these books is more like what you'd see in a short story. It's a lot of description, and even the action scenes are not very exciting. The characters never seem to learn their lessons and the ones who are supposed to be thirty act like they're still fifteen. I didn't like how they were narrated so simply, and the term fox-flame got on my nerves. It was a good storyline though, and a good idea to start from. Just didn't like the way it was executed.

    I enjoyed this book and liked learning about Mara's daughter and some other characters from the story. However, I also think this book felt "rushed" and could have been longer. I would have liked to see some more resolution to parts of the story too and not be left hanging with the open-ended ending.

    A beautiful conclusion to the Exodus trilogy. But as someone else said in their review, it just didn't feel long enough. I want more! Some of it felt a little rushed. But it was such an exciting read! And I really wish this wasn't the end for all the characters I know and love, I want the story to continue...

    On the cover of every one of the books in this series is a sticker that says "If you liked Hunger Games you'll love this." That sure isn't true. This one is better than the last one but still, the writing just didn't suck me in. There also felt like there was a setup for a potential next book. Aurora doesn't pick up right where book two let off, there is a several year gap.

    I was so disappointed by this whole trilogy. The ending was terrible as you dont really know for sure if fox found lily or mara and you dont know if mara got back with fox. I felt it didnt end. The trilogy had such potential.

    This series has it all, a keeper for my library. I am mourning the end of a spectacular story that transported me to such amazing places along side wonderful, believable characters.

    Still loved it but found it a bit short and just missing something. Also, don't like how the end just cut off :(
