For the second book in High School Dexter but Better, Lyga goes the full Empire Strikes Back with the ending. I like that he goes dire, although to get there, he has to take some stupid, stupid leaps. There are a ridiculous number of players in the Game, but the reveal is clever and worth it. I guessed it, but didn’t believe it, but still felt satisfied. Plus, Jasper fucking hates New York, and it’s ABOUT TIME. FUNYC.
