Unfinished Symphony (1997)

About book: A great ending to what I consider a 3 book series. This book picks up where Heartsong left off. Melody is off to LA to find her mother. Through many twists, turns and learning about the real-world, Melody gets the answers she's desperately looking for. They just might be not the ones she wants. The character really develops into a brave young woman throughout the book, and she finds one secret after another. Just when you think you know all there is to know, 20 pages before the book ends comes another bombshell that you didn't even see coming. Wonderfully written.I consider this only a 3 book series and not a 5 book series because the next 2 books no longer deal with the character of Melody. The 4th book deals with the life of a character that was already dead in book one. The 5th book deals with the young life of the Grandmother Logan, an evil supporting character throughout the series. I didn't find the characters of that much interest to invest 2 more books that have nothing to do with the main character, Melody.

THIS SERIES CLEARLY WAS MY FAVORITE BY FAR. I WAS REALLY THINKING THAT LAURA WAS ALIVE ALL OF THIS TIME IN THE MENTAL INSTITUTION. TO SEE JUST HOW FAR OLIVA WENT WAS DOWN RIGHT CRUEL. I FELT SHE HAD NO RIGHT TO TRY AND CONTROLL EVERYONES LIVES THE WAY SHE DID. AT THE END OF THIS BOOK I FELT LIKE IT HAD AN EARLY CONCLUSION OF HOW MELODY AND CARRIE WHERE GOING TO LIVE THERE LIVES. I FELT THAT THE "LOGAN"SERIES WAS BROUGHT TO AN EARLY END. BUT I GUESS IT MADE ROOM FOR "LAURAS" STORY AS WELL AS OLIVIA. BY THE WAY, WHAT IS WITH THE NAME OLIVIA, IN TWO DIFFERENT SERIES THE VILLAN IS PROTRADE BY SOMEONE NAMED OLIVIA. CLEARLY SOMEBODY NAMED OLIVIA MIGHT HAVE BEEN CRUEL OR MAYBE V.C ANDREWS DISLIKED THE NAME OLIVIA.

I loved this series, and had a fairly good understanding of the characters. It was predictable, as most of Andrews' books are but it didn't make it none the less entertaining. What through me off most, however, was the ending. The way it was concluded left me believing that the next book, Music in the Night, would be the final conclusion to the series. However, when I discovered that it was actually about the incident with Melody's late cousin, I was taken aback and a bit upset for a while that the ending in Unfinished Symphony was the complete ending. Perhaps if there had been a small epilogue or something, and the book had not ended on a cliff hanger, I would have been more pleased with the series. However, it was good and just because of the ending I won't take away the good value in the read. I just make myself remember that books don't end when the pages stop, we've just lost the ability to know the certain future.
Kris - My Novelesque Life
When I read these novels back in the day I would have given them 3-3.5 STARS and now would say about one StarI started reading VC Andrews books in the 1991 and stopped about 2003. I have read:-Dollanganger Series-Casteel Series-Cutler Series-Landry Series-Logan Series-Orphans Series-Wildflowers Series-Hudson Series-Shooting Stars Series-DeBeers Series-Broken Wings SeriesAs a preteen reading these novels was a rebellion and the gothic theme also seemed cool. I stopped reading this author because the novelty wore off, the novels are too formulaic that I could not tell one book from another and gothic aspect was lost.

Heart Song was a bit plodding, but fortunately the action picks up in this book. Melody gets the answer to her long sought-after paternity after finding out that her mother isn't dead after all. This book isn't the best, but it's still pretty good at a solid 4/5 stars. Several deaths spot this book, but they feel rather convenient in the scheme of the plot, so this read is a bit light compared to previous series, and nowhere near as exciting as the Dollangangers, Casteels, or Cutlers. Still, this book is a decent read.
