It’s day two and things are definitely starting to heat up. I feel like yesterday’s chapters really set us up for everything else that is going to happen, and I can’t wait to find out more.
Let’s get reading on today’s chapters! 🙂
Please be warned, the following will include spoilers for chapters 10-18 of Finale by Stephanie Garber. Read only if you’ve finished those chapters!
PALOMA HAS WOKEN UP! I REPEAT, PALOMA HAS WOKEN UP! I never thought this day would come! Seeing Tella reunite with their mother was just the sweetest thing, after everything they are back together. But it’s quickly ruined. Her mother tricks her and makes her go to get her food, and then runs away. WHY? TELL US WHY. THE NOTE DOESN’T DO IT I NEED ANSWERS. Poor Tella!
Being the badass that Tella is, she follows her mother and finds out that she paralyzed the guards and when Tella confronts her mother she tricks Tella again by bringing her close to paralyze her. I’m sure she’s doing to protect Tella but oh my goodness! Something we totally expects comes next – the Fallen Star comes to kiss Paloma and they stab each other! This means that Paloma is dead (is she *really* dead though?) but the Fallen Star will come back to life because he is a fate. What a twist!
Tella watches the whole thing go down, and when she’s trying to crawl to her mother’s body guess who comes? JACKS! My precious evil boy (I have always had a soft spot for Jacks!). He takes her back to his GAMBLING DEN (am I the only one screeching at how awesome this is?) and she’s a mess, which is understandable because she just lost her mother. He can take away her pain, and he does. THEY KISS YOU GUYS. THEY KISS. We just started this book and I have screamed multiple times! I love love love the way Stephanie write’s kiss scenes, and this one is no exception.
Tella then goes home the next day and is arrested because somebody has trashed their flat. I wonder who did this? When she’s in her cell, Legend visits her and he’s totally fine. She’s furious. He also asks her where she was last night since he couldn’t visit her and was blocked and I reckon he must know it’s because of Jacks. I smell drama!

There is obviously a lot going on at this point, and I feel like all of the chapters from yesterday have set us up for this – which I’m loving! Legend is trying to contain the fates, and we find out why he did what he did to Esmeralda. We also find out that Scarlett can see people’s emotions now, so I wonder what turn this is going to take on the story!
What do you guys think of today’s chapters?
I cannot wait read chapters 19 – 26 with you tomorrow!
