The Most unexpected Plot Twists

Recommended Posts

Yeah, this and Harry surviving. A lot ( alot.pngtongue.gif ) of people expected him to die, mostly so that there couldn't be hundreds of copy-cats with pathetic little stories. I'm all for survival, but the end was pretty terrible if you ask me. It seemed Rowling didn't put any heart into it. There was just something wrong with it, in comparison with the rest of the later books.

WHAT!? You didn't like the ending? I though it was amazing. Normally I get annoyed with the predictability of story endings, like how the main character always survives, but this time I didn't expect the main character to 'die' and come back to life. I've read the series about seven times, and I love the ending every time. *is a big Harry Potter fan*

From Dragon Quest 9 (Ninetendo DS)

When Aquila turned evil and you couldn't fight him, so you had to eat the fygg. I didn't expect that...

Oh and one of the Maximum Ride books... the second one I think when Angel turns out to be a double agent

That was good, but then

when she turns out to be Max's spy was really shocking, and when Ari helped the flock escape.

Oh, Deficiency, by Andrew Neiderman, was just amazing. The antagonist, an unnamed man with the lack of a true identity, takes specific nutrients from young women, like a health vampire, and they end up dying because of the great deficiency. However, there's another man by the name of Clark Kent who looks exactly like him, and the main protagonist gets a bit suspicious. However, it turns out that Clark Kent was some sort of scientist that produced a clone. He's on the search for the unnamed man to "improve" his clone to such a state that the clone won't need to steal nutrients from the bodies of women. But then, when they finally meet at a cheap motel, the clone kills the creator and takes on the creator's identity... and the book isn't even finished there yet.

For readers over the age of 18 (tere is some filthy smut in the book) The morgan kingsley series by jenna black is amazinng. It's about an exorcist in a world where demons are common, and the exorcist's job is to find "illegal demons" like illegal aliens from the demon world. You'd never guess what happens in it when people start to be possesed.

The ending for the Mistborn trilogy by Brandon Sanderson was completely unexpected. @n@ I still think the somewhat tragic ending is suitable though but my friend disagrees xd.png

That's very true, but Brandon Sandersons books are all full of unexpected plot twists.

No matter how many books of him I read and how much I am expecting unbelievable things to happen, I end up being totally shocked because this great great man surprises me with things I would never have thought of.

 

Other unexpected plot twists?

Well, there are plenty, but nothing can be compared with Brandon Sanderson, the god of writing.

 

I am quite surprised of what was written in the first post about the Mortal Instruments series

Major spoiler alert:

 

Nothing in those books surprised me in any way.

The whole thing about Jace and Clary was so obvious and I knew after City of Bones it would all end well for everyone.

 

It would have been cool if Jace actually had died in the end of City of Glass. I neve rliked him and his death would have been surprising. When he died, I thought at this very moment "Ok, and how will they bring him back?" I never believed he was really going to die. I absolutely didn't like him, so I was kind of disappointed when he came back to life biggrin.gif

About half of A Dance with Dragons was unexpected, especially the revelation of a new contender for the Iron Throne.

 

Also, I did NOT expect the ending of All the Weyrs of Pern! It was so sad.

I don't know if anyone as read Naomi Novik Temeraire Books but I was surprised that:

 

 

 

the real reason that the Chinese delegate wanted Termeraire back was to usurp the throne for a younger brother so that he could cut off contact with other European countries.

 

... I mean i thought of everything but that. Novik made it so that you wouldn't even suspect until the very last chapter. I enjoyed the surprise greatly.

I am not fully convinced that the new contender for the Iron Throne is legitimate.

Skulduggery Pleasant Books 4 + 6 (I'm obsessed with these at the moment xd.png)

Why is Sklulduggery so EVIL? Lord Vile! And Valkerie's not much better, Darquess? I wonder why... Neither of these was really expected when I read them for the first time, why are they so evil yet good at the same time??? xd.png
