    For the previous book I read in the series, I felt the writer wasn’t creating anything too new. However, this time around, the story felt more refreshing and different. It was interesting and I liked the links made to characters from the previous novels. This was an enjoyable story from the beginning. Initially we focus on Nathaniel’s mother. We discover she is a time traveller but Inmon does not dwell on this for very long (to be expected, when the book is not named after her).

It was interesting and I liked the links made to characters from the previous novels. This was an enjoyable story from the beginning. Initially we focus on Nathaniel’s mother. We discover she is a time traveller but Inmon does not dwell on this for very long (to be expected, when the book is not named after her). As Nathaniel ages, the narrative shifts towards him and I appreciated this alternative opening to the story: it showed me from the beginning that this was going to be a bit different from the other books in the series. Nathaniel is a lovable character, especially as more is revealed about him. I could not help but draw parallels with superhero stories and Marvel icons, particularly in the latter half of the novel. The story is less about time travel, but more about Nathaniel trying to live a “normal” life; to escape attention and not draw attention to his abilities. It is this factor that made the book feel like it was from a completely new series. Yet, Inmon brings in characters from other novels which I found really clever. It was pleasing to see how other stories became connected and it has left me guessing which other people are going to feature later in the series. It felt like you were reading about a community and, whilst the characters feel isolated in themselves, you know this is not the case. However, the final part of the story, Nathaniel’s interview and beyond, felt far too preachy for my liking. It felt as if the writer was trying to enforce some beliefs and the idea of spiritual guidance. It did not come across subtly, which made the final chapters far less enjoyable. The story had moved towards this final climax, but I felt that Inmon’s authorial influence was far too strong. I could not believe in Nathaniel’s words and thought it was more the author speaking through him. Whilst I appreciate the idea of healing the soul and making changes from within, Inmon came across too heavy and it lessened the overall impact that I imagine the writer was trying to achieve. All of this aside, it was a good book and I read it over one day. I am keen to continue this series – I am glad I haven’t put it to one side – and my curiosity remains piqued as to what direction the series will take next. Are there more time travellers? And are there more powers to be revealed? I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The "growth" that other characters fought for, is absent here, only hinted at and I think that dragged the story down a lot. my favorite parts: (view spoiler)[The TV interview he gave (hide spoiler)] Brutus... he was an adorable dog Some of the "lessons and advice" Nathaniel gave.. some of it did make me think. The friendships in here well done. Maybe I was bit too cynical for this book too? *shrugs* I'm spiritual but not religious so it didn't offend me on that level. For what was promised in one part of the summary... it seemed over too quickly for me and another connection hinted at that I would have loved to see explored instead of just told to us. Aah well, sometimes you can't love every book in the series... I will continue with this maybe later in the month once I catch up on some of reads *crosses fingers* Still recommend this series, I've had a lot of fun so far:).

This book is quite different than the first three works in the series though, since Nathaniel Moon is not only born knowing about past events, but he also isn't trying to correct any past mistakes made in previous lifetimes. This book is less about time travel than it is an attempt to understand society, institutions, and the people dealing with personal and public problems. It is a stand-alone work, but it is fun to recognize characters from earlier works in the Middle Falls books. It is well written, with a terrific plot, and great character development. I read it in a couple of days.

    I’ve read a few of the books in this series and thus far they all had the same basic premise. The lead character dies, then comes back to life at some point in their past, but with memories of their past life or in some instances lives as they can die multiple times and return multiple times. In all cases, the new lives are all restarts from the same point in their past.

The lead character dies, then comes back to life at some point in their past, but with memories of their past life or in some instances lives as they can die multiple times and return multiple times. In all cases, the new lives are all restarts from the same point in their past. Probably needless to say, this basic premise has an almost endless potential for unique characters and possibilities for how they use their new lives. Some try to get things right that they didn’t get right the first time (or first three or four or five times). Others try to prevent something bad from happening to someone else the next time around. Given the number of successful romance books published that are built around one basic story, I’m confident Inmon could have done many more time travel stories without messing with his formula here. But he has. This time around we have a character (actually we have two) who fit the basic premise, but the main character is different. Yes, he appears to be living another life (his last one according to the title) but there are some differences in him that make a big difference in the story, where it can go, and where it does go. The places it sends the reader’s thoughts are also a lot different than the prior stories, no longer wondering what you might do differently if you could “do it all over again” but also wondering about the concepts of good and selflessness as well as the difficulty of balancing your personal needs with those of others. Shawn Inmon’s books, especially those in this series, have a way of prompting thought which to me is one of the main reasons I read, to see and consider things from different points of view. If you feel the same, this book should hit the spot. **Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog. May have received a free review copy. **

    Spoilers for The Final Life of Nathaniel Moon. I'm a fan of this series, and the author. I was aware going into this that there would be a break from the first three books, and aside from the inclusion of Thomas Weaver, we'd move on to a new cast of characters. The strength of the last two books in particular, for Michael and especially Dominick, was the brilliant use of that reset button. Michael went back 87 times to almost cleanse himself of who he was through violence before finding Hartfield Spoilers for The Final Life of Nathaniel Moon. I'm a fan of this series, and the author.

The strength of the last two books in particular, for Michael and especially Dominick, was the brilliant use of that reset button. Michael went back 87 times to almost cleanse himself of who he was through violence before finding Hartfield Academy, and Dominick made huge strides in a timeline before starting over, again and again. What felt odd here, through Nathaniel, was aside from Violet (I give Shawn tremendous credit for mostly keeping all of the V names intact) resetting herself once and only losing a single day, there was very little use of that time travel plot device that I felt worked so well for this series. Nathaniel went through his life, normally, but with superhuman powers of healing. His past lives were part of the plot but were not accessible to the reader. At one point, between Joe and Andi and Violet and Nathaniel, I was wondering if there was anyone left who wasn't reliving a past life, or even if that was the point, that we all do it, based on the advice he gave to dying patients at the hospital. (I somehow can't see that, or else everyone everywhere is walking around not realizing everyone else is also reliving their lives?). In short, this one was weird, and I suspect it was a side idea by Mr. Inmon wedged into this series. I didn't leave with an understanding of why Nathaniel was different, and didn't relate to the characters as well, especially given how oddly Nathaniel and Joe spoke, although given they both relived their lives that may be explainable in that they're old souls. That I didn't enjoy this one as much as the past two is also based on just how much I enjoyed those books, and not as commentary on this one. I'm between 3-4 stars in my head, but am not ready to decide yet. *Update* I think 3 stars is appropriate but with a disclaimer. I generally look at ratings based on what the book sought to do and how successful it was. I feel that the standard the previous three books upheld wasn’t quite met here in that Nathaniel’s history wasn’t made clear to the reader, the time travel framing wasn’t put to tremendous effect, that his character was inaccessible based around his “condition” which wasn’t clear in origin and some preachiness in the ending. Also, it was a bit odd that a 30 year search that was well funded would fail and end as it did. I hoped for a bit more. But to be clear, because I love this author and the style of these stories, I felt like the step down was a bit higher because it started off so high. I do recommend this book and wholeheartedly recommend this series.

    Not what I expected. I have read books 1, 2, 3 and 5 and expected this one to be along similar lines. Early in the story I wasn't sure if I even wanted to continue, as it was quite a departure from his other books. I'm very glad I continued, as this book quickly became engrossing and hard to put down.

His special gift was handled believably and calmly by his mother (until the necessity for the big reveal... of course) and gave the reader quite a bit to ponder. I have always had an open mind regarding all the possibilities 'out there' that we don't have a clue about, including reincarnation. I am glad I read this book and glad that Mr. Inmon took a different road this time. Can't wait to see what he comes up with in later books.

    In my opinion, this book earned 5 stars. It is a highly enjoyable story based on an intriguing premise. Characters are believable while still having some mystery about them. When reading the series I became familiar with Middle Falls from many different viewpoints. My only complaint is that it ended too soon!💜

    What a sweet story of love and forgiveness. It's full of philosophy and speculation and ideas that forego religion - things of which I am not fond. Still, it falls into line with the series without really being about time travel. The goodness of the main character is what really stands out. Adam Verner is fantastic in his audiobook performance.

    Ok, not as good as the others The story was decently crafted, but the dialog came across to me as stilted. The arc of the series has been quite good but this one is not the apex. Nevertheless I enjoyed the read.

    Another home run from Shawn Inmon. The story is amazing. I love how he weaves bits of wisdom into the story and makes the characters deep enough to really enjoy. I highly recommend the entire series and anything else he writes.

    Best by Inmon I've read Excellent story about how a messiah-like character would be treated today and the lengths people would go to to attack and save said messiah. I love the reboot Inmon uses. Love the whole Middle Falls series and can't wait for more!

This one was such a different take than the others but I really liked it. The characters were of the same style but the storyline was amazing. Telling a tale that needs to be told and expanding on it. What will you like? If you have read any of the series you are in store for a little change but it will take you places that you would not even imagine. I think that the characters were awesome and the storyline so detailed and emotional. I have enjoyed every book that Shawn has written and I am off to the next book in this series. Love his work and would recommend it to everyone.

    Set in the same world as the first three books in this series, this one departs sharply from the original formula. First, it follows two protagonists: The first is a time travel character who is not from Middle Falls who only travels back in time about a day (instead of years) and this sets off the chain of events that result in the life of the second, titular protagonist. This story explores how a "messiah" story might play out in modern times.

This story explores how a "messiah" story might play out in modern times. It's an interesting and challenging thing to do and I think it succeeds well enough on that level. It heavily borrows from and references a book called "Illusions" by Richard Bach, which curiously enough I happened to have read some 25 or 30 years ago and had nearly forgotten. It's something of a re-imagining of that book, albeit with less aircraft maintenance. While I don't think the author ever quite manages to achieve what he wanted to here, I think he got pretty close and it's a thoroughly enjoyable read.

    Nathaniel was astonishing. This book was quite a bit different from the first three and I sort of missed the people from the other books that I had come to love. However, it was very intriguing to learn about Nathaniel and to see him grow and live and to view his life and his approach to it. While reading this book in particular, I wondered often about real life people I know and how similar their foundational beliefs are to Nathaniel's. I wish I could meet Nathaniel and encounter his spirit and Nathaniel was astonishing.

    The editing was awful. Several times the mom's name changed on purpose, but they couldn't seem to keep in straight (among many other mistakes). If someone has never walked in their life, it's not likely their feet are large enough to support their body weight. So, even if he can perform that miracle, there are serious holes in that theory. I think people often take the editing process too lightly.

    Gripping! This fourth story in the series was gripping from the beginning. It hooked me in when Nate, (as I call him) begins to speak to his mom from the womb. Need I say more? This wonderful story has been very different from all the rest and I am so glad because no author wants to start sounding redundant.

    Brilliant!! This book was different than the first three. At first I struggled and put it down, read Veronica's book, and ended up going back to Nathaniel....So very glad I did!! What a story!!
