about

In the final book in the New York Times bestselling Ruined series, the romance of The Selection and the epic stakes of Red Queen come together in a story of revenge, adventure, and unexpected love.

Emelina Flores and her sister, Olivia, were determined to bring peace to the people of Ruina. But as the war for liberation raged on, what triumph and freedom meant to Em and Olivia slowly changed. As Olivia’s violence and thirst for vengeance became her only ambition, Em was left to pick up the pieces. 

But it’s not only Em who is upset by Olivia’s increased violence. Other members of the Ruined army are beginning to see the cracks, and soon a small group of them defects from Olivia’s army and joins Em instead.

The two sisters are soon pitted against each other in an epic battle for the kingdom and the future, and only one will win.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good ending to the series This one really started to drag on for me. Took me a while to get through for sure, but in the end it was a good ending. Some of the things the characters did kinda made me scratch my head but it all worked out in the end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Romantic Finale And this is the end! The finale was almost exactly what I thought it was going to be, and I'll miss these characters and their adventures. There was a large amount of betrayal, adventure, and of course, romance with tons of different characters. The story was pretty straight forward, but there were a few breathers after the middle of the book. There were a few scenes that I wish were a little longer but I'm not really complaining. Each of the characters finished their arc, even newly added characters like Galo and Iria. Olivia turned out of be way more brutal than I thought, and I was worried about our heroes for a few scenes. In the end, this was a strong series with strong characters and many sweet and endearing romances. Definitely something to pick up of you're looking to read a new YA romance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Wonderful Series~ ^^ By some miracle, I received this book earlier than I was supposed to (not that I'm complaining), and I was barely able to put it down until I finished it! xD To be honest, though, I'm not quite sure how I feel about Allied: it definitely wasn't quite as exciting as the other books--especially the first, which is still my all-time favourite of the series--since there isn't nearly as much action in it, but it managed to wrap things up nicely, and it was still enjoyable to read! ^^; Overall, though, I must say I LOVED the series. <3<3<3 It's definitely not perfect, but it's pretty darn close, in my opinion. U_U First of all, the characters are amazingly written: they're all so diverse, and have a lot of depth to them, which makes their interactions with one another, and their growth so fascinating to read. *O* Also, I'd like to give Amy a round of applause for making Em a complete, and utter badass WITHOUT making her a stereotypical "Strong Female Lead:" Amy didn't trade off traditionally "feminine" traits like compassion in favour of strong, "masculine" ones like cleverness, and physical prowess; Em had BOTH, which I really, really loved, and appreciated. TT^TT <3 ALSO, I flippen' adored my darling, Cas, and I loved how she presented traits (traditionally "feminine" ones, too!) like being really optimistic, and trusting as strengths, rather than weaknesses, which isn't typically done. ^^ And, I just think Cas is a beautiful human being, and Amy deserves an award for conceiving of someone so precious. TT^TT <3<3<3<3 On the topic of Cas, and Em, another thing I loved about the series was the relationships. A lot of YA novels tend to really butcher romances for some strange, and unfortunate reason, but Cas, and Em's relationship was just so beautifully handled--I shipped them SO HARD from beginning to end. xD<3<3<3 Although, I did think the relationship between Iria, and Aren was really random, and weird, and regrettably didn't grow to like it in the end, so that was both surprising, and disappointing... :( ANYHOW, I also loved how friendships, and familial relationships were presented as being just as important as the romantic ones (which is pretty rare in YA novels, I think), and were also incredibly written~ :D<3 All the bromances were beautiful (I'm including Aren, and Em here, too), and I loved how everyone openly showed how much they loved each other without stupidly feeling jealous, or like their masculinity, or sexuality would be jeopardized by doing so. For example, CAS GLOMPED GALO WHENEVER THE HELL HE FELT LIKE IT, AND NO ONE THOUGHT TWICE ABOUT IT, AND THAT WAS BLOODY FANTASTIC! U_U Last, but not least, I really loved, and appreciated the themes that ran through the series: forgiveness, making amends for one's mistakes, and how people aren't entirely good, or evil, and can actually do both good, AND bad things. Amy did such a wonderful job weaving all of these elements into her story by way of her characters, which served to make them so much more human, and the story so much more inspiring, and incredible to read. U_U <3 All in all, I think the Ruined series was AH-MAZING, and I would definitely recommend anyone who hasn't already read it to do so! :D And this is even considering the fact that I believe the second, and third books paled in comparison to the wonder that was the first book--the parts between Aren, and Iria threw me off a lot, I will admit, LOOOL--which is what inspired me to go read every book Amy has ever written (the Reboot series is phenomenal, btw *o*). xD With that being said, I can't wait to read the next book Amy writes (I need more Cases, and Callums in my life, LOOOL)! :D
