Good Reads Summary:

In the third installment of the Significance series, we begin with Maggie and Caleb in the clutches of a new enemy; the Virtuoso council. Not only do they have to deal with the consequences of taking the lives of the Watsons and the council attempting to take Maggie away to keep their precious Visionary safe, but they must deal with Marla as well. All are determined to undermine, control and use Caleb and Maggie’s rare gifts for their own uses, some wish to destroy them entirely. Then Maggie’s father and Bish are threatened but the council forbids the presense of humans. Peter and the family fight and stand beside them every step of the way to save Maggie’s father, to keep Caleb and Maggie together when the corrupted council is so set on keeping them apart and to stop Marla and whatever she has up her sleeve. Then Maggie has the shock of her life when she discovers something about her real father. It may change everything for everyone. 

Stay tuned as the story continues.

I enjoy this series. It’s not the best I’ve ever read, but it’s consistent, adorable and it has only kept growing in complexity and interest as the series has gone on.

Maggie and Caleb are so cute! Sure, some of the circumstances of being a significant are kind of silly. It takes the whole teenage romance to a ridiculous level. But that are so adorable that you forgive the ridiculousness pretty quickly.

Those dang Watsons. Why anyone lets them get away with stuff is beyond me. I don’t care that the stupid council (and I do mean stupid, with a capital S) has stupid laws about certain things. If someone kidnaps someone else, tortures them, etc, they are going to get beat up by SOMEONE. And the Watsons pull crap right and left without any consequences.

I really wanted someone to look at the council and be like

I like that Maggie and Caleb are finally stepping up and coming into their own. That was a nice dynamic shift. I’m excited to see how that affects their relationship and how it affects the community of Aces. It was good that they were confronted with some really bad stuff, because it was the push they needed to take that step forward.

This series is quite fun. Adorable romance, sinister villains, and forced ballroom dancing. What more could you ask for?
