Because you can't judge a book by its cover

Emma still isn’t finished with Neos in Surrender by Lee Nichols. After the horrible battle they fought in New York, Emma and Bennet can finally return home to the museum and try to reevaluate their strategy for defeating Neos. Bennet’s parents return home, kick him out for his drug use, and agree to be Emma, Natalie, and Lukas’ guardians because Simon (their previous guardian) has become the new leader of the Knell. Emma continues her training with the Rake and trying to survive school, but things get beyond weird when students start being controlled by wraiths. With Neos behind these possessions, Emma has to worry about all of her class mates and whether or not she can dispel the wraiths quickly enough. With the help of her team, Bennet, Harry, Sara, Coby, and her other ghost friends, Emma must face Neos in one final battle. Will Neos be able to defeat them or will Emma and Bennet be able to decide who will sacrifice their powers to the other in order to dispel Neos for good?

Surrender was a wonderful conclusion to the Haunting Emma series! I couldn’t put it down (not that I wanted to) and was completely engrossed in the story. As the plot thickened, it became much more difficult to guess what would happen next. The ending to the novel was definitely a surprise, but I knew it couldn’t have been any better! I loved watching as Emma finally determined exactly who she was and what values were important to her. I also enjoyed watching as the friendships and relationships in the story were strengthened because of the adversity they were facing together. Overall it was a fabulous book and a wonderful series!
