out that their music might just be the key to defeating the coming darkness Annnnnd just a little side note I m totally a Team Pearl Moz There I said it Westerfeld is for sure one of my all time favorite authors The end Scott Westerfeld s writing is a gift to the senses Unlike some books, where you re tempted to skip the large chunks of description between the relevant pieces of dialogue, The Last Days descriptions arelavish There are just no other words to describe it The descriptions transport you right into Scott Westerfeld s kooky, paranormal world, overwhelming your senses and making you feel as if you were standing right alongside his characters I have mixed feelings about this book I both loved it and hated it On one hand, I thought it was an amazing sequel to Peeps Scott Westerfeld is a great writer, with a very hypnotizing and mesmerizing writing style His characters are real and well developed, and I loved many of them Scott knows how to grab my attention and keep me there I really enjoyed the whole band thing Westerfeld managed to capture the power of music down on paper in a way that no one has been able to do before The b I have mixed feelings about this book I both loved it and hated it On one hand, I thought it was an amazing sequel to Peeps Scott Westerfeld is a great writer, with a very hypnotizing and mesmerizing writing style His characters are real and well developed, and I loved many of them Scott knows how to grab my attention and keep me there I really enjoyed the whole band thing Westerfeld managed to capture the power of music down on paper in a way that no one has been able to do before The book was suspenseful, exciting, thrilling, action packed, and left a huge impact on me.Yet, this book was also highly disturbing and made me very angry several instances throughout The whole Peeps disease thing is cool, but sometimes it can get really creepy especially with all the cats having it now And then there was the evil monster worm thing.Ah, yes Let s talk about THAT.That was what entirely ruined the book for me I mean, come on PLEASE The world is coming to an end not because of creepy cannibals but because ofan evil people eating giant monster WORM Um, okay No thank you That s just too cartoon y, mwa ha ha Dr Evil type thing for me I couldn t imagine it, couldn t make a sense of it in my head whenever the worms came up Everything else in the book seemed so real, but this was just like, WHAT It was like the whole book was a movie with real people actors, and then all of a sudden the worms are animated pictures that suddenly appear in the real life movie They don t fit and they ruin the book It was MUCH better when the Peeps were the villains.Other Pet Peeves About This Book Things That Made Me Mad Warning Some spoilers below Pearl is my favorite character All along, I d been waiting for her to get together with Moz AND THEN MOZ HAD TO GO AND MAKE OUT WITH MINERVA B BOTH OF THEM I HATE YOU, MINERVA AND MOZ YOU CAN BOTH GO DIE FOR DOING THAT TO PEARL HOW DARE YOU Lol, sorry for that rant I just had to get it out thereYeah As you can tell, I m really pissed that Pearl didn t get to be with the boy she was in love with, and got her heart broken God, Westerfeld really hates me He has a bad habit of repeatedly torturing my favorite characters Dess was my favorite character from Midnighters, and Scott had to make her excluded and left out all the time And now Pearl Gee, Scott what have I ever done to YOU God MINERVA She should go die I HATE her HOW CAN SHE DO THAT TO PEARL GO OUT WITH MOZ Doesn t she KNOW one of the first rules of friendship you DON T go out with your best friend s crush, even if you like him GGAAHH SHE S A GREAT BIG B AND I WILL KILL PEARL IF SHE EVER FORGIVES MINERVA It really bothered me how a lot of things were left unfinished Like how we never found out how Moz was getting the money to pay Alana Ray I really wanted to know if my suspicions were correct, and if Moz was stealing the money, and I was holding my breath and hoping all throughout the book but I never found out That really annoyed me Also, the Black Death thing was never confirmed the book never said what disease it was I mean, if you re going to bring up a bunch of questions, can t you at least do me the courtesy of ANSWERING them What REALLY made me mad was how everyone just shrugged and accepted the supernatural, just like that, when that s NOT the nature of humans I mean, come on There are vampires that seem to somehow exist now, and giant evil worm monsters who are eating people So does everybody freak out and stuff, like expected NOO NOBODY freaks out Everyone just goes, Oh, it s evil monsters that shouldn t exist That sucks Let s all save ourselves and fight them now UhhhWHAT That is NOT how normal humans react to the supernatural IF that happened in real life, NORMAL humans would be running around screaming, thinking it was all a hallucination or something They WOULDN T accept it right away and they wouldn t actually HELP get RID of the monster, like all the unrealistic humans in The Last Days did.Another thing I thought the pace was a bit TOO fast, especially towards the end I mean, there s nothing wrong with a fast, exciting book, but it wasn t just that Events started flashing by without Scott Westerfeld paying much attention to them, and he just sort of zipped through things in a second, making me feel like everything was happening at once and way too fast, like the last chunk of the book was frozen on the fast forward button on a remote Wow, I realize I ve been ranting for a long time on this book, and most of it s all just ramblingwhoops Anyway, basically, I thought that overall, this book was pretty good, but there were just a lot of flaws and gaps that ticked me off I have just summarized this whole entire review in one sentence Wow DIt s weird Scott Westerfeld seems to always lose his grip towards the end of all his series or whatever Like, he had a great trilogy going with Midnighters, but then he blew it with Blue Noon Peeps and The Last Days were good, but the ending chunk makes me hesitant I think the only time he DIDN T do this was in the Uglies series.Anywayyou should read The Last Days if you ve read Peeps, because it s interesting to know what happens next, and because Pearl is awesome But DON T read The Last Days if you haven t read Peeps, because you ll be utterly lost and confused and mad and you probably won t read Peeps because of that So, I ll just end this incredibly and unexpectedly long review by sayingThe End There D Moz and buddy Zahler are struggling musicians in New York City, waiting for their big break In the meantime, however, Moz witnesses a woman in a nearby apartment throwing all of her belongings out of her window Amazed by these events, he barely manages to catch a 1975 Fender Stratocaster as it comes tumbling down toward the sidewalk The girl who helps him, Pearl, turns out to be a musical genius, and offers the boys the opportunity of forming a band How can they pass that up Pearl knows the Moz and buddy Zahler are struggling musicians in New York City, waiting for their big break In

band needs a powerful singer, and can think of nobody but her best friend Minerva Although she s recovering from a mysterious illness, one that makes her sick to hear her own name or see her reflection in a mirror, she manages to sneak out of her parents apartment to join the band.Soon, the members begin to discover that their music ispowerful than they thought Maybe it has to do with the mysterious black liquid leaking from the sidewalks and fire hydrantsor the large number of rats that have suddenly appeared Either way, the band knows that Minerva is getting her lyrics and inspiration from the very illness that connects her to these deadly forces threatening to take over the city But will the band succeedor be called to a higher purpose by the rud Angels populating the city Strange things are happening old friends disappearing, angels or devils clambering on the fire escapes of New York City But for Pearl, Moz, and Zahler, all that matters is the band As the city reels under a mysterious epidemic, the three combine their talents with a vampire lead singer and a drummer whose fractured mind can glimpse the coming darkness Will their musi This was so incredibly

gu Scott Westerfeld is arguably the master of modern day sci fi His books, whether they are set in this present world, or in a future place, are always easy to relate to and understand Even readers who have not read PEEPS and you should will enjoy this one.THE LAST DAYS is essentially a story about five wannabe musicians getting together to form a band There s Pearl musically talented, smart, rich, an entrepreneur, and a little bossy on the keyboard There s Moz, the talented but untrained guitarist who along with Pearl saves a rare Stratocaster guitar that a crazy woman was chucking out of her apartment window Zahler is Moz s best friend, guitarist turned bassist, who constantly feels as if he s the band s weak link and has a penchant for making up new words fawesome.The threesome hire Alana Ray, a talented but neurotically challenged drummer who drums on paint buckets and can see what music looks like And finally there s Minerva, Pearl s friend who was bitten by something and now exhibits vampirish and vaguely cannibalistic tendencies but whose singing talent somehow connects the whole band together into something paranormal.When the band rehearses, strange things happen The ground beneath them rumbles, as if something is struggling to reach them from underground Meanwhile, the infected Minerva develops a relationship with Moz, as the parasite inside of her tries to spread itself by making her horny and irresistible.In their journey to find an agent and get signed up to a label, the still nameless band learn that there is something very powerful about their music, as it has a way of summoning up the human race s greatest enemy from deep within the earth where they reside Now, the five young men and women must use their musical and supernatural talents to help the peeps, infected humans who can control their vampirish tendencies and who were created to help save humanity Together, they will summon and fight the enemies until nearly all are extinct Until next time.The world that Scott Westerfeld has created is creepily realistic I got chills from reading this novel, and anything that moves me to such a reaction is extraordinary The concept of a singer able to summon monsters is super cool Loved seeing the characters from the first book again Gained a new appreciation for musicians Also the invented words are fun That was a satisfying ending It was also really, really, really weird It was an interesting take on vampires, and I m not really big on vampires, and this totally put them in a whole new light, and I think I like these vampiresthan the ones in other books I actually enjoyed this bookthan Peeps, which is a companion novel, but the first one made less andsense But that s why you should read them in order, so you know about what happens in the first book and you can apply th That was a satisfying ending It was also really, really, really weird It was an interesting take on vampires, and I m not really big on

sequel I don t think you were supposed to like the main characters Or at least not all of them I definitely liked some, but the other two were bleh They all had their downfalls, but I felt like I could hang out with them and have fun Not so much with Minerva She was just downright creepy And I know that part of this is due to her not entirely human thing, but it was still shivers weird And Moz started out okay, but he went down from about halfway through.One thing I really enjoyed were the Night Mayor files I thought those were simply fascinating It supplied a completely different view on history and how things happened I also forgot a lot of the first book, so I was pretty confused at first, but the files helped.The music aspect was really refreshing I like books with music as a focus, since I play two instruments, and I really enjoy music and it was fun to try and imagine what the music sounded like I think it may have been a 3 star without the music, but I just really loved the music, and I always have in books and in real life.The plot was a bit scattered And I don t think it was meant to have that perfect storyline arc It felt intentional, and I liked that It wasn t just your standard story That being said, I liked the sort of plot line a lot It didn t have some amazing epic peak, but rather there were a bunch of little peaks, but it wasn t like a bunch of anecdotes I can t explain it well, but perhaps if you ll read this book you ll understand Of course you might not like the first one and just not read the second one Who knows It felt unique, and yet still kept me interested and wantingThis book wasn t perfect, but it was still highly enjoyable, with a great cast of characters, and interesting character dynamics I really enjoy Scott Westerfeld s books as some of his books are some of my favorites of all time, and I m glad I enjoyed this one too Also positive I read The Last Days
