OMG- it’s time once again for me to share my undying love for this series with you, and I’m pretty much flailing all over the place like the hopeless fangirl I am. The Wasted Series is pretty much one of my favorite ever, and I’m so dang excited to be celebrating the release of the final book in the series, TOTALLY WASTED. All my favorite girls are back and there’s drama and intrigue and oh so much more. Read on for all of the details, plus my own review of TOTALLY WASTED! Plus- there’s a giveaway, so be sure to enter!
About TOTALLY WASTED:
Welcome to family therapy, Fairholm style.
When Osiris headquarters fell, Frankie ran away with Spark Dawson, hoping the open ocean would wash the chaos of her life away. The Nameless, and her own primal urges, soon intrude and before Frankie knows it, she and Spark are traveling to Hong Kong to face what’s left of the company.
There she finds her entire family under the protection of the Sha Lù. Kat and Addi are pissed, Nero has given up, Judah won’t let anyone leave, and her mother and aunts are getting along for once in their lives. Things are weird.
Because Frankie’s life is never complicated enough, Spark becomes dead set on uncovering the deadly secrets Judah hid from him–and gets more than anyone bargained for in the answers he discovers.
Tensions are high and morality is low as Frankie starts unraveling the threads that bind them all together. As old ghosts haunt her thoughts and new enemies dance just outside her reach, she has choices to make that determine the future of everyone she knows. Now all she has to do is convince everyone she knows what she’s doing.
After all, if Osiris doesn’t fight the Nameless, they’ll all have to hide behind the Sha Lù for the rest of their lives…and the wine supply is running out.
Miss Riki’s Review:
Where do I even start with my love for this book. Not just this book- this entire series- but today we are talking about TOTALLY WASTED. Or as I like to call it, THE BEST ENDING TO A SERIES IN THE UNIVERSE. Or maybe ALTHOUGH I LOVE THIS BOOK TO DEATH I WISH IT WEREN’T THE LAST. I could go on, but I think you get the point.
Let’s start with pour favorite main character. Frankie Fairholm is a dynamo. She’s badass in all the ways a female assassin should be, but she’s also flawed and might possibly be coming apart at the seams, which makes her oh-so-relateable and super easy to identify with. I mean, who else can make you feel like you want to be besties with someone who kills for a living except Cara Vescio. Nobody- that’s who. Frankie is back in this book with a vengeance, and I loved her to pieces. I wanted her to kill. I wanted her to survive. I wanted her to love. And thankfully, in TOTALLY WASTED, she does all three with panache.
Moving on…nobody writes fucked up family dynamics like Cara Vescio, and in TOTALLY WASTED we are thrust right back into the Fairholm family where everyone is screwy and possibly just a little scared. But not. You be the judge. Kat and Addi are back, and they steal the show in every scene they’re in. I absolutely love this family, and in TOTALLY WASTED we get the conclusion to their stories.
If you love excite locales and non-stop action, you’re going to be in reading heaven with TOTALLY WASTED. It’s a hefty book (thank God) but the best thing about it is that not a paragraph is wasted. Every page is fraught with action and tension that left me turning pages long into the night. I love a book that leaves me feeling just a little bit on edge, and there is so much danger in this book. It’s seriously fast-paced and compulsively readable.
Although I’m super sad that this book signals the end to the WASTED series, it was everything I could have hoped for in a series ending. I fell in love with these characters three books ago and loved this conclusion.
Start with ELEGANTLY WASTED and work your way here. You won’t be disappointed.
Catch up with the beginning of this series!
