It's finally summer in Rosewood, Pennsylvania, which means afternoons at the pool, high school graduation -- and the end of the scandal that has rocked the town for years. Or so everyone thinks. It's been weeks since police caught the notorious stalker and murderer known as A. But Hanna, Aria, Emily, and Spencer know that the real A is still out there. And as long as A is on the loose, nothing can ever go back to normal ... if there is such a thing as normal in Rosewood. Hanna is offered the role of a lifetime -- in a movie about her life. Aria's paintings go viral, until her fine art escalates to the art of war. Spencer starts an anti-bullying blog but finds that her homepage is as dangerous as her home life. And Emily goes behind bars to reconnect with the only girl who ever stole her heart. But these little liars need to watch their backs. They should know by now that A never forgives and never forgets. And this time, A is determined to bring them down -- once and for all.

Naturally, we get anther side to Emily's personality. I read a comment on how someone thought that because Emily may have been the one most affected by Ali, she would be the one to take her down. I like that theory. And oh my goodness I just realized that Caitlin Martell-Lewis is a character in Sara Shepard's other series, The Perfectionists. She also appears in Spencer's anti-bullying seminar. Is this an accident? Or an Easter egg promotion? To be very fair, Ali betrayed Nick so why didn't he just rat her out? An eye for an eye... liars!

Cant believe this is the second to last book! Felt like I just started the series. This book is putting everything in the past into perspective.

Book was actually pretty slow and uneventful literlly untill the last few chapters.

When will these books END? Everything feels like repetition now: the plot (chasing after A only to find wrong leads), the drama (break-ups and make-ups, or a new boy/friend who turns on them for/because of A, etc), even most of the phrases are repeated (how many times can someone have "ducked her head bashfully", or have "padded down the hall", or even give a "meaningful look" to another?). It's beyond time for this series to end, Sara Shepard.

it was kind of boring in the middle of the book series, but the first couple and last couple of books are always the best. Or the end or start of a new arc.

really addicting but so far not a lot of action :(

I have to ask how many there are going to be. Ali, again, sets Hana, Emily, Aria, and Spencer up for success then, again, rips the rug from underneath them setting them up for disaster. But, why? Because, they didn't know she had an evil twin that apparently the parents didn't realize had pulled a switcharoo on. I'm not giving it a bad review, that's up to the reader. I'm just wondering.

This book was very addicting. I literally couldn't put it down! I am going to be heart broken when the series is done!

Very good! I really do love this series! What an abrupt ending! I can't wait for the next one! This book is available as an ebook, though not listed in the library catalog for some reason. Just go search it on Magic Wall. Also, this is not the last book. "Vicious" will be book #16!!! It will be the series finale and is set to be released Dec 4, 2014!
