Nothing Left To Lose (John Cleaver, #6)Nothing Left To Lose by Dan Wells
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Final installment. I, for one, am quite happy with the direction it took and the way it got resolved.

Full circle. John the normal sociopath has been building his conscious ethics across all these books and has made a virtue out of choice. Doing the right thing is not something that comes naturally, but having self-imposed limits means that he defines his world and himself in a way that the demons have categorically *not* been able to do.

Supernatural sociopaths are the closest thing he has to kinship with anyone, too. That was very clear in the previous book.

Therefore, it makes perfect sense that amid all the bloodshed and gruesome murders he feels the need to redefine his relationship with his greatest foes, focusing on choice, not revenge.

He doesn't feel things like normal people do. It only follows that he feels a kinship with the monsters.

That being said, I loved returning back to his hometown to finish the war with all the monsters. And things are dark. Very dark. It's the best feature of these novels.

Quite happy, I am! :)
