Surrender was a pretty great book for anyone who's looking for some great plot twists. While there were parts that were Deathly Hallows-esque, lots of sitting around waiting for stuff to happen, there were some parts that were absolutely shocking. The narration itself is gorgeously done, and I adore Hartnett's writing style. It's a little unclear at first what's going on, until you realize that it's in several different points of view. The emphasis on arson was a bit much, I thought. There was a time when I was just sitting there going "Okay, he's into fires, we get it." The end revalation is a complete shock. I knew something was up, but the eventual explanation--never could have seen it coming! It'll leave your heart pounding.

Rating: 4/5
