Love/Hate relationship with it, left room for more stuff to come, but it doesn't look like that's going to happen so I hate that part.....

It was a crappy Harry Potter, Inheritance, Death Cure, Mockingjay and Breaking Dawn ending. though it's most similar to Inheritance

I fail to see how it's like any of those.

SPOILERS AHEAD



Unlike HP, it doesn't do the lame jump into the future where everyone is happy with kids thing.
Unlike Inheritance, the MCs stay together and relatively happy at the end.
Haven't read Death Cure, so not quite sure there.
Agh... sooooo unlike Mockingjay. Everyone's mostly sane at the end, and the death toll is hella lower.
Breaking Dawn??? Dude, you can't compare the worst piece of literature ever to Goliath. Does Deryn have a monster killer fetus ripping her to shreds? No. Does the whole book lead up to a climax betwee two groups, then end with them deciding not to fight and walking away? No.

*nods* She does break her spine, gush blood, have something injected directly into her heart, and have her husband chew her baby out of her stomach after it breaks her pelvis and several ribs...

Best scene in that book.
