Together, Silas Nash and Charlize Wynwood must look deeper into the past to find out who they were and who they want to be. With time ticking down, the couple are in a race to find the answers they need before they lose everything. Can they regain what they once had? And will it restore who they once were?
Ah, the long-awaited Part Three of Never, Never finally got released. Will we finally get to understand what happened to Silas Nash and Charlie Wynwood, and more specifically why they lose their memory every 48 hours?
Funny thing is, I can kind of relate to Charlie and Silas because I really had to try hard to remember what happened in Part One and Part Two because otherwise Part Three would have made very little sense to me. After all, Never Never: Part Three picks up exactly where Part Two left off, and there is no easing you into what had happened before. Either you remember or you just read the previous parts again.
Anyway, once you gain back your memory, you’re ready to go and follow them in their quest. Again, Charlie and Silas are being hinted at quite a couple of things and have difficulties finding out which hint to focus on first. But somehow they just make it and all is good in the world again, and they lived happily ever after. Okay – this is an abridged version. But I couldn’t possibly tell you anything without spoiling the story to you.
Honestly, I still think the Never Never Series came with some really good ideas. I absolutely loved the mystery that was built around Charlie and Silas losing their memories, and all the different “side-stories” that brought them closer to understanding what exactly happened. And on top of just bringing them closer to the root cause, their common investigation also brought them closer to each other. That, combined with the cliffhangers at the end of every book just accounted for a HUGE buildup.
But well, in the end of Part Three, once the big “secret” is finally revealed, the reader is just disappointed because honestly? This reveal was just ridiculous. Over the top. I don’t really know what I expected, but I certainly did not expect that – poof, with such as an ease – they’d found a reason for what happened, and that it seemed so very obvious.

“Maybe it has nothing to do with us, and everything to do with us.”
I just felt that the ending wasn’t given as much thought as it would have deserved, and the epilogue was rather… meh. It’s really a shame because the story had a real good potential, and I think part of the reason why it didn’t keep its “wow” effect was because it was sectioned in 3 different parts which made it difficult for the reader to connect back… Maybe one day I’ll read them all in a sitting and think differently, but right now I can’t say I’m wooed.
