Der Korridor mit seinen verschiedenfarbigen Türen und dem sanften Licht hätte heiter und friedlich wirken können, aber das tat er nicht. Die Stille hatte etwas Lauerndes und es war nicht auszumachen, von wo das Licht überhaupt kam. Trotzdem liebte ich diesen Ort und die Vorstellung, dass hinter jeder der Türen eine andere Seele träumte, und alle Menschen auf der Welt durch dieses Labyrinth mit einander verbunden waren. Es war ein magischer Ort, geheimnisvoll und gefährlich…
The hallway with all its different colored doors and the soft light could have seemed bright and peaceful, but it didn’t. The silence was somehow loud and it was impossible to tell where the light was coming from. Still, I loved this place and the idea that behind each of these doors a soul was dreaming, and that all people on the world were connected through this maze.

+ Liv’s inexperience
+ Lottie and Mia
– forced tension and excitement
– simplistic (children’s book) ending
Compared to the previous two books in this series, I found this one a little boring. The tension and excitement from the first two books didn’t carry over well into this last one; it felt forced and flat. It wasn’t as gripping as I was expecting it to be.
The only issue causing proper tension and stress was Liv’s inexperience in the bedroom and her ways of dealing with it. Those scenes were quite funny and I felt embarrassed for her. Lottie and Mia’s characters were (once again) completely on point, and helped me to continue reading.
Defeating Arthur seemed a bit simplistic. It was very convenient that they just happened to come across this [thing] (I don’t want to use spoilers), that just happened to be the only way they could think of to make him harmless. It felt like this solution was more appropriate for a children’s book than a YA novel.
All in all, it was still a fun read, but something was lacking in comparison to the first two books in this series.
