And so, it ends.
What began in Part 1, was expanded in Part 2, is further expanded, concluded, explained, but left open for the future in Part 3.
What a journey.
Confining myself to Part 3 rather than a review of the series as a whole, Part 3 ties up all the loose ends of who is who, what secrets are they keeping, what powers they have, who who is related to who.
In terms of stroke value, there's a lot going on, Patrick is as indefatigable as ever, and there's a whole section of everyone having sex with everyone else. For a reason. Thankfully there's a degree of variability to the descriptions, which is needed in a story this long, and some of the descriptions are shortened so that you don't have to wade through 'cut and paste' sex like some others here at SOL do. And of course, if you enjoy some under 16 sex, and some girl-girl sex, there's plenty to keep you happy.
In terms of plot, there's so much going on that I personally found it confusing keep up with who is who. Indeed, even though I read it through in just a month, I still got a little lost. Setting that aside, it was fun to watch as the various elements from the earlier chapters came together at the end, there were plenty of surprises, and more developments of the backstory so that, by the end, you're pretty sure why things happened as they did.
Now, as we all know, playing the game of 'where did that come from' in any story can be fun, and you can play it in My Girls III almost endlessly. Sure, there's Star Trek, there's Serenity/Firefly, and there's others along the way. What is different, however, is the idea of the colours, how they are used, and how they relate to their 'hosts'. It may be me, but they way they are used here is novel, and worth reading to see and be inspired by in themselves.
How does all of this come together? If you like stories with a lot of sex, but not so much that you need to skip past reams of the same old same old, then My Girls III will satisfy. The same is true is you get a buzz from incest, from loving daddies, and from sisters who love each other too. Plot wise, there's lots to keep up with, and not all of it expected or predictable, with some genuinely touching deaths along the way. Characterisation is good too, especially for the main characters, with lots of development and explanation.
So, I would heartily suggest My Girls 1-3 if those are your kinks, if those are your plot interests, and if you enjoy one of the meatier novels here on SOL.
Personal note: I've now read all through the sequence three times, enjoyed it each time, 'discovered' more with each reading, and will come back to them again in the future. And yes, Cindi is my favourite too!
