First thing I have to say is that The Deep is a beautifull and perfect conclusion to a great series. The pace of this last book in The Island series is well done and efficient thanks to the rythm of the two points of view. (Leia and Alisa) There was so much to say about what happens and I think the way it's written allows the reader to have a look kind of everywhere. Not only because I discovered new lands and new ideals but also because I had the chance to get to know characters I wouldn't have imagined to want to know in the first place. For example Saul and Ben. I had also great expectations regarding what Leia and Walt were going to discover. Again, I was not disappointed ! This novel made me ask myself questions about what's good and bad, what kind of World we're living in or just how human beings can or should interact with one other. I think this is one the ingredients we find in a great dystopia book but also simply in a great book. The ending was for me perfect. Of course, certains things and passages were sad to read but fortunately, there is a balance. My favorites characters got what they wanted and maybe even more. Without telling too much, the ones who needed to be punished got what they deserved.
Then what I also loved about this last book in The Island series is that, in my opinion, it's a perfect mix between the two novellas. I mean in the first two books, we got to discover the Island and how it is ruled. And it's the same in The Deep. But what's good is that the way Leia sees The World Accors The water brings new elements and intensity. There are actions, soft and thought provoking moments that lead the reader to be a part of the story. It's thanks to great and strong characters like Alisa and Leia but also Tony and Ben. Everyone is important when actions and emotions strike the Island and the new world.
To finish, one of the things I really appreciated is that all along the novel, I had no idea how it would end. I often guess or imagine the end of a book, I don't do to it on purpose and it doesn't prevent from loving the entire book. But The Deep always made me react, fortunatly, I was alone when I read it. Especially towards the end but I can't say too much about it. Of course, I would love to read about what kind of life Leia, Walt, Alisa and Saul would have five years after the end of The Deep. Who knows ? Someday, maybe we could read it ! But really, it was a perfect way to say goodbye to such an amazing characters. Again, it's a perfect ending, the kind that makes you want more but pleases you at the same time !
