    You’ll need to keep an eye out for Black Widow #2! It’s already out, and #3 should be out in a few weeks!

    Yay for WILD JUSTICE!!!!

    Also, how did you like the end of ALLEGIANT? You can email me if you want, since it involves talking MAJOR spoilers. πŸ™‚

      I’ll be picking up #2 the next chance I get. I really enjoy the artwork. I’ve only seen Noto do covers before, so I’m curious to see how long he’ll stick around.

      And yes, Yay for Wild Justice πŸ™‚

      As for Allegiant, I actually don’t have too many issues with the ending. I really don’t know why that’s the problem so many people have with the book. I did end up taking issue with other aspects, the biggest one being the fact that the Four chapters were written in the exact same voice as the Tris chapters. It just didn’t make sense to me, given how different the two characters were. Also, as someone that doesn’t always stop and start a book and chapter breaks, I didn’t always know who I was reading about when I picked up the book. Confusing.

        Ooooh, good call on the voice. Okay, but I’m going to email you, because I want to specifically mention a SPOILER and I don’t want to accidentally ruin the trilogy for anyone. πŸ™‚
