Everfound - Neal Shusterman

The fight for Everlost and the Earth comes to a head in the final book of the Skinjacker Trilogy. Mary's Afterlights continue their journey westward, hoping to full fill her mission as she lay comatose in the back of the train. They encounter a group of savage Afterlights, and the Afterlights scatter, except for a chosen few who remain loyal to Mary. Jix frees Allie, who has been held prisoner by Milos. Jix and Jill get captured by the Neon Nightmares. After a few days Jix cleverly tricks the leader into holding and Everlost coin, which sends his spirit to it's final resting place. Jill leaves Jix and the Neon Nightmares and rejoins with Milos and the skinjackers. Allie makes her way to San Antonio with the intent of stopping Milos and the other skinjackers from reaping souls to build Mary's army. There she encounters Clarence, who can see both Everlost and Earth. When they find Milos and everyone else Clarence, who according to Everlost legend is a scar wraith, touches Squirrel and his spirit just disappears. This one event sends ripples through out Everlost and Earth, and it awakens Mary Hightower. Once she finds out what has been happening, Mary continues to go forward with her plan to end all life on Earth and bring everything living into Everlost.

I've loved and enjoyed this trilogy, and Everfound was a good ending to this trilogy. A few things I figured out before the end of the book, but there were a few things that I didn't see coming. I recommend the whole Skinjacker Trilogy: Everlost, Everwild, and Everfound. Also, any of Neal Shusterman's books including Bruiser and Unwind.
