The Final Hour Review

Author: Andrew Klaven

""You're not alone. You're never alone."
Charlie West has held on to that belief, but now he's starting to wonder. He went to bed one night an ordinary high-school kid. When he woke up, he was wanted for murder and hunted by a ruthless band of terrorists. He's been on the run ever since. Now he's stuck in prison, abandoned by his allies, trying desperately to stay a step ahead of vicious prison gangs and brutal guards. And a flash of returning memory tells him another terrorist strike is coming soon. A million people will die unless he does something. but what? He's stuck in a concrete cage with no way out and no one who can help. Charlie has never felt so alone- and yet he knows he can't give in or give up . . . not with the final hour ticking away."

Characters: Amazing! The characters are written so you feel like you can see them, both the bad guys and the good guys. There’s finally a real sense of who’s on what side, and I enjoyed getting to see more of Sensei Mike.

Location: Good. The locations were clear and easy to visualize. However, like in the previous books, they didn’t strike me as spectacular.   

Plot: Incredible. This book is, if possible, even more exciting than the first three. We finally get the answers we want, and the ending is as satisfactory as an ending can possibly be.

Other: This book, even more so than the rest of the series, is the kind of the book you can’t put down. Forget what I said about The Truth of the Matter being the best. (Well, don't totally forget it, but you know what I mean.) This one surpasses it.

Overall Rating: 5/5
