I like all of these books. If you've read the Kim books you've already met Maya. Kim never talks about Maya getting saved in her last book, which I get, but I would have liked it to line up better, and if she had gotten saved sooner in the book it might have been easier to finish it because her character is a little negative, not that you can blame her. And also the green message wasn't pollitical, it was just simple things about not wasting what we have, which I really liked. All in all it's not a bad book, but although I love melody's writing I don't think this is a good way for a new reader to start the series, so that beings said start with caitlyn instead, then get acqainted with Maya.
