    One thought on “Head Rush”

    1. Head Rush, the final book in The Disillusionists Trilogy, proves that sometimes great things really do happen in threes!This review is for the third book in Carolyn Crane's "Disillusionists" trilogy, and while I'll be avoiding spoilers for this book, the following review will contain MAJOR spoilers for Mind Games and Double Cross . If you haven't read those two books yet, please promise me two things:1. You will go check out Mind Games and Double Cross. They are absolutely mindblowing, and fille [...]

    2. !!!!!!Gumby saves the day!!!!!!!! With that I skate off from the man that was once my hero, leaving him there in the dark parking garage, with all his plans, hopes and dreams. This man I will attack and betray tonight. The man I just might die with.  One of the best series finales I have ever readI hate it when authors save the last 25 pages for one excitement and action to sum up the series, but no Carolyn Crane starts out with excitement from the very beginning! I was hook line and sinkered f [...]

    3. Absolutely amazing!!! Head Rush is a very satisfying end to this fun fun series. Each book in this trilogy is so special to me and they are just plain fun to read. The characters are unique, fun – and well as it has been said quite a bit about this series – quirky. In Head Rush, the characters are dealing with life and death situations, authoritian leaders, imprisonment of their friends and colleagues but in spite of these serious situations, the characters are funny, or maybe I should say F [...]

    4. Wow, I just realized I never went back and finished this trilogy. I was so disappointed in book two that I must have repressed this whole thing. lolIt started out so well with Mind Games. My review is here.Then, Double Cross happened. My review on that one is here.I think Justine being annoying and the love triangle ruined it for me. I also disagreed with the author's choices and what can you, as merely the reader, do about that. Not a thang. So I might go back to this. Maybe. Marking for later. [...]

    5. I’m not really sure what it is about this entire series but I got sucked in. The writing is good but not great, the plot has a few minor holes and sometimes the escalation/resolution of events is incredibly fast. But the story, the overall premise and the characters really carry this for me. Once I picked it up I had the hardest time setting it back down until it was over. Sometimes that is all you need in a book.“I love you. I won’t stop waiting—”After the crazy ending of Double Cross [...]

    6. This series lost its charm for me near the beginning of book 2, and while Head Rush wasn't a particularly bad ending to the trilogy, I'm just glad it's over. As for my predictions, I was 50% right. Yippee. ___________________________________________My predictions for Head Rush:1. A startling amount of scenes with Justine clutching her head because something isn't sitting well in there.2. Justine will be about to say "I do" to Otto when Packard raids the wedding and abducts her. Then something li [...]

    7. Soo if you've seen my other reviews of this author's work you know I ADORE this world she's created and her writing, starting with the first book Mind Games. She takes the idea of a world with comic book hero abilities and grounds it in a cool urban fantasy setting. It's truly unique and comes with an engaging set of characters you want to spend time with. The lead character, Justine, is fascinatingly neurotically funny as a dysfunctional hypochondriac, which make for great internal struggles an [...]

    8. To summarize: Happy Gumby = Happy Justine. Happy Justine = Happy Packard. Happy Packard = Happy Jaime.Go, go, Gumby!!I loved the ending of this trilogy. I got my Packard fix and then some (see status updates if you don't believe me). Plus there were so many twists and turns, and then the slam-bam ending -- what's not to love? My hat's off to you, Carolyn. It doesn't get better than this.P.S. Can Simon have a story? Pretty please? And can Packard have a cameo? Because one can never have enough Pa [...]

    9. There was absolutely nothing interesting about the first half of this book and I pretty much predicted what was going to happen even before the half way point, which deflated my enthusiasm since that took the intrigue out of everything. It picks up eventually, but for me it was too little too late.Justine's narrative was absolutely unbearable for me a lot of the time, and I think this book would have benefited from being in 3rd person and switching from multiple POVs because I really didn't care [...]

    10. “You always find your way to truth, Justine.”Slowly and painfully for your poor readers, but you do.First impressionsI will pick on the cover again. What is it supposed to represent? Is that Justine? What’s that magic circle thing around her hand? Is she doing magic now? Will she discover a new power that will help her in her final battle against - I quote the book description - herself?The plotHead Rush is the final installment in The Dissilusionists series. The sleepwalking cannibals are [...]

    11. It sucks so much when I really like the first book in a series and then everything goes downhill in the books to follow. Thank god that the disillusionists was not one of those.This series kept getting better and better. I don't know if the writing got better or I just got used to it, but everything else definitely did.I liked all the characters in the first book, loved them in the second one and after the third one, I actually feel like they are my very messed up friends. I even have some twist [...]

    12. Impressive and satisfying conclusion to a series that I'm incredibly sad to see come to an end.Carolyn Crane, a remarkably talented author, has created an unconventional, often neurotic protagonist that I just can't seem to get enough of. She's Justine Jones, former disillusionist who now spends her days in Midcity as a medical student. She's complimented by a secondary cast of characters that can occasionally have her mental struggles as a hypochondriac seem downright normal by comparison.There [...]

    13. What a fantastic series! The third and last book in the Disillusionists trilogy blew me away! The series is so original and so addictive. People channeling their neurosis into others to lessen crime? Very different, very cool and very unlike any other UF I've read. This is a world that introduces us to highcaps, or high capacity individuals, think telekinesis, dream invasion, structural manipulationunds almost X-men like right? Definitely. These are humans with extraordinary skills that defy rea [...]

    14. Justine is trying to move on with her life after the horrible events that happened in the last book, Double Cross. She's going to nursing school and planning her wedding to Otto but things are not the same. Packard's on the run and she doesn't know where most of the other disillusionists are. On top of that, every time she thinks of Avery, she's blasted with horrible head pains. After reading the last book, I could hardly wait to read this one. I just had to find out what happened!! I still can' [...]

    15. Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! *****5 stars*****"Packard and me in the back booth. The candlelight, the discoveries, the lies. The intensity of Packard's gaze, as though the emotions inside him burn too hot. The aliveness I felt."It is so rare that a series ends in a way that makes the reader happy, as well as tying up any and all loose ends. This series closer delivers that and much, much more. First off, I want to say that Carolyn Crane is a very talented writer and I hope that she's already working o [...]

    16. Buddy read with Buddies Books and Baubles.Please be aware that although this review will be spoiler free for Head Rush it will contain spoilers for previous books so please don't carry on reading if you're not up to date with the series.After the horrendous cliffhanger at the end of Double Cross I was incredibly relieved that I didn't have to wait a year for the release of Head Rush and I was able to dive straight into the story to find out what happens next. I just couldn't believe it, after al [...]

    17. "Do you want anymore cookies?" (Otto) "No."Hell no. Favorite-shelved.I dove right into this one after the last book's ending because I didn't want to end up killing my e-reader. As the conclusion to Carolyn Crane's acid trip of a series, Head Rush kind of blew my mind in the most unexpected manner. It got a bit Normal.I'll always have a soft spot for this series because its the weird, quirky, funny kid in the playground that tells crazy stories and expresses his emotions through clay.That's how [...]

    18. 4.5 StarsCarolyn Crane really put me through the wringer with her Disillusionists trilogy ripping the rug out of from under me over and over again. But here, in this conclusion, she gave me everything I wanted, leaving me warm & fuzzy, satisfied, and a little wistful now that it's all said and done.As the story begins, Justine is going forward with her plans to marry Otto, convinced Packard killed Avery and went on the run. Of course, the readers know the truth. And it's great stuff as Justi [...]

    19. Now I remember the question that haunted me throughout the 1st and 2nd books: How come Justine can zing but is no highcap? Q:I could see a truly desperate highcap coming forward for more money, but it would have to be a lot more. Hell, I’m just an overwrought human with the power to zing, and I wouldn’t want the Pentagon knowing about that. But if I were a highcap? You couldn’t pay me enough to get tested. Because what happens when the powers turn out to be real? What would the scientists [...]

    20. I apologize to the 1 random person who may actually have read it. (It was quite eloquent and profanity free)I'll summarize for that 1 random person's benefit in modern layman's terms:--This book should have been kick-ass like the first two, but it was not--Justine's a self-rightous bitch who whines too much (Not sure why two guys love her other than that she's *cough, cough* easy)--Packard and Justine's romance is melodramatic and disgusted-snort-worthy--Otto deserved better from the author (I'd [...]

    21. Previously Published on my blog: Welcome to Larissa's Bookish Life*NO Spoilers.After the heart crushing ending of Double Cross and the real life will-they-won’t-they-publish-it drama, me and everyone else who is a fan of this series, have been in a tizzy waiting for the conclusion of this great trilogy.Carolyn Crane has created such an innovative concept within the disillusionists trilogy, not to mention such unique and fascinating characters that you can't help but being completely drawn in a [...]

    22. Satisfying conclusion to the series. I'm very happy how it finished for the characters on a personal level. Plot though felt a bit weaker compared to the other books, less twists. Perhaps because the focus was on MC facing her own demons and sorting out her personal life. The beginning dragged a bit - one thing is to stumble in the darkness with the character uncovering truth together, quite another is to follow her making mistakes and drawing wrong conclusions knowing quite well that she is bei [...]

    23. Grade: A+ or 5 StarsHappy Gumby has his right hand in the air and bent for a fist pump! What an incredibly satisfying conclusion to the Disillusionists trilogy!. I absolutely loved it. For those waiting for the ebook you are in for a treat.This is my first audiobook. It was so worth the money. I enjoyed the narrator's voice. *rises for standing ovation*Now, I need to work on a spoiler-free review.

    24. I really tried but I didn't and couldn't get into this series mainly because I HATED the heroine with a passion. When you hate the narrator or protagonist of a book, there is really no loving it. The heroine was hateful, selfish, stupid & TSTL.

    25. ***This review contains spoilers for those who haven't read book two in this series.***"The power of fear trumps everything. This is one of the few things I know for sure."After reading book two in this series I found myself unable to write a review. I couldn'tI just couldn't. The ending of that book was a doozy of a cliffhanger and I am SO glad that I picked this series up when all three books were out already. The ending of Double Cross left me thinkingI couldn't even go to sleep! I had to beg [...]

    26. Head Rush3 StarsContinuing where Double Cross left off, Justine Jones is preparing for her wedding to Mayor Otto Sanchez and trying to ignore the feelings and clues that something is dreadfully wrong. Her friends and her fiancé appear to be keeping secrets and the city is under martial law due to rampaging sleepwalking cannibals and a rash of crimes that are eerily reminiscent of previous High Cap attacks. Adding to all this is Packard, now a fugitive wanted for murder, who insists that he is i [...]

    27. I've been waiting so patiently for Head Rush since finishing Double Cross. The wait was definitely worth it. I won't indulge on the details of the story without giving things away but I will say that I will never think of Gumby as a meaningless little soft clay creature again! Also, this is one of my favorite UF series! I'm in awe of the creativity & uniqueness of the world that Carolyn Crane has envisioned. I highly recommend this trilogy to anyone looking for a UF that is different & r [...]

    28. 4 starsI've decided I'm not going to write an extensive review for this. I've said most in the reviews of the previous books. I will just sayI loved Packard.I think Justine has developed a lot throughout the series.I loved the ending.This book is my favorite of the series. I don't know if it's the writing or the theme, but this book isn't one of my favorites, but I enjoyed reading about Justine very much. I'm looking forward to more books by Carolyn Crane.And finally some quotes"I want to hug hi [...]

    29. Full Review NOW up on paperbackdolls/?p=8357 PLUS a giveaway of audio version of HEAD RUSH.This long awaited conclusion brings a very satisfying ending to a helluva cliffhanger. The only drawback is the limited availability of the book. Due to a switch in publisher and other circumstances, the book was released to audio first and will be followed by e-book then print a few weeks after. Now, for audio lovers (like myself) that's not too big of a problem, however for several fans who won't listen [...]
