Having returned from changing Cassie's life a third time, and finding out that she still remembers him, Trent is over the moon, but then Cassie disappears, making it clear that she is just like him; a time traveler. But her first mission comes at a really inopportune time, and causes her parents to turn against Trent more than they already were, and they attempt, multiple times, to keep the two of them a part. When Cassie's birthday party arrives and Trent doesn't turn up, much to her parent's glee, Cassie and Lorelei, Trent's sister, get concerned about where he is, and the reunion of the two takes place in somewhere completely unexpected...
I can't believe that The Vortex Series is over, but such a perfect ending, well kind of, there was a rather emotional and moving moment happening before that which devastated several of the characters, almost leading to an ending that I would not have accepted. But also, if Deuce isn't the end of this series then I will be ridiculously happy! I'm pretty sure that there could be so many more adventures that Trent and Cassie could go on!
The relationship between Cassie and Trent was interesting, normally I'm not too sure about characters so young being so serious about each other, but in this case it worked. I mean they've spent three different lives falling in love, and have been through so much, it seemed right that they ended up like this. Though I must say the event that happened after Cassie's birthday surprised me, I didn't see that one coming at all!
I know I'm being cryptic, and there is so much more that I want to write about the book, and the series, but I really don't want to ruin the book or series! But if you like YA romances, with a side helping of adventure and sci-fi then this is most definitely the book for you!
Deuce (Vortex #3)
