Readers will probably figure out the ending pretty early on, but the chapters are suspenseful, and towards the end you cannot put the book down. Though I was sort of disappointed in the ending, feeling like it should have been more resolved, RED IS FOR REMEMBRANCE was a thoroughly entertaining read.

THis was my favorite book in the whole serries. You will never beleive what happens - there are so many twist and turns and a whole sleew of great new characters. I really hope that there is another book in the serries soon because I can't wait to find out what happens with Stacey and her friends. A GREAT READ!!!

The final book in the Blue is for Nightmares series by Laurie Faria Stolarz. This book was a good read and good conclusion to the series. I didn't think it was as good as the previous books though. This book didn't have nearly the suspense elements of the previous books.

In this book Stacey is at college and rooming with Amber. After Jacob's death she is fighting to not succumb completely to depression, when she starts having nightmares again. The president of the university contacts her and wants her to help his daughter Porscha, who also has strange dreams about death that are driving her crazy. Stacey's dream are hinting that maybe if she can help Porscha than she can save another boy's life; why does Stacey get the feeling this all has something to do with Jacob?

This was an easy read, a well-written book, and a nice conclusion to the series. That being said I was a little disappointed with the book in general. This book never had the creepiness of the previous books. In fact there weren't really many horror elements at all. There was a little mystery but not nearly to the degree of the previous books. As for the chapters alternating between Stacey and the mysterious Shell; I figured out the part that Shell would play in the story right in the beginning and was disappointed to find out I was right. I kind of felt like Stolarz was sick of writing this series and just wanted to wrap it up in the quickest way possible; and in a way that would leave her readers happy and not disgruntled.

This was a fine conclusion to the series but I really felt like Stolarz didn't put much into the story; she is extraordinary at writing creepy horror scenes but she kind of skipped out on that for this book. I was just so disappointed. Should you read the book? Well you kind of have to given how "Silver is for Secrets" left us all completely hanging mid-scene. Will I read more books by Stolarz after reading this series? Probably not. Although it would be interesting for her to do a couple books about Porscha.

This final book in the 4 book series was great! I thought I knew how things would go but then something happens and I'm left guessing until the end. I am older than YA and I thought the whole series was good. Great take on what witchcraft is really about.

i really enjoyed this book. i didn't like the cliffhanger at the end of the third one, so this one wrapped it up nicely. I really like the idea of having two points of view between shell and stacey, because it was a little different then a lot of other books that don't use different points of view. this series isn't one of my favorites, but it's still an interesting read and it keeps me entertained.
