They thought they were finally safe, but Spectrum has been waiting for them.

The Ever Falls will make you question everything you thought you knew about life, humanity, and the choices we make for the people we love.
Brilliant conclusion to the series! The Ever Falls by Robin D. Mahle is the long awaited finale to the World Apart series, and y’all, it does NOT disappoint. Picking up right where The Forgotten World left off, The Ever Falls will sink its teeth into readers and not let go to the very last page. If you’ve been dying to know the conclusion to Clark and Addie’s epic love story and adventure, this is the book for you.
Please note that there may be spoilers from previous books in the series in this review. Read at your own risk.
Addie is in a dark place at the beginning of this book. Her world imploded with the revelation that her own father has been working with Spectrum and caused the explosion that killed her mother and sister. She’s also dealing with her short, forced marriage to HaDrian which annulled her marriage to Clark, a marriage she wasn’t sure she wanted until it was taken away from her. With barely any time to process what has happened to her, Addie is thrust back into danger as she and her friends travel back to where it all started in the hopes of stopping Spectrum once and for all.
Clark’s headspace isn’t any better than Addie’s. He thought he lost his father only to learn that he was alive and well, fighting with the enemy. He watched his brother die only to find him alive and healed with the father that attempted to kill him. He then lost Addie during their transport to Levalia and finds her married to a sadistic king. Anger rules his thoughts as he tries to wrap his mind around all that has happened, all that he lost, and all he gained back. The grief and loss are still at the forefront of his mind. He doesn’t want to risk losing Gunther or Addie again. He doesn’t trust his father even if his reasoning for lying makes sense. My heart ached for him as like Addie there is no time to process these emotions before danger calls them home.
The bulk of this novel takes place back in Central City where it all started. Addie and Clark with their friends and family have a choice to make. They can stop Spectrum but potentially doom the world, or they can evacuate those they can and let Central City be destroyed. Is it really a choice for our heroes? Addie and Clark will stop at nothing to save the city and the millions who live there. Only one thing can truly save the city, but who will be brave enough to make the sacrifice? Y’all this book tore me apart. I cried, I raged, I cried some more. I love that the author can evoke that emotion from me as I read.
In the previous books of the series, Mahle fed us backstory of characters at the beginning of some chapters. The backstories are complete, but that doesn’t mean we don’t get more from the other characters. The author surprised me with some new POV chapters from all of our favorite characters. I loved getting perspectives from so many other characters. It adds dimension and clarity to the actions of various people in Addie and Clark’s lives.
Overall I loved this finale. The Ever Falls is everything I wanted from the series and everything I didn’t know I needed. If you’ve enjoyed the series so far, you will be pleased with this conclusion. I can’t recommend it enough!

Clark — son of the greatest terrorist the empire has ever known — is still reeling from his father’s death. Since then, his life has boiled down to two things: his brothers and his next mission. When his mission to bring back a mystical artifact goes awry, he’s forced to choose between getting the job done and saving the life of a spoiled socialite.
But Clark isn’t the only one after the artifact.
He and Adelaide must work together to survive… if only they can manage to avoid killing each other before their enemies have the chance.
