Genre: YA Dystopian/SF
Ah, the end of a wonderful series. Wow, I devoured this series! For me, it had everything. Awesome romance, cool characters, unique setting with both futuristic and past elements, understandable goal, despicable villains, twists and turns, sad stuff and happy stuff. And many swoon-worthy moments! (Had to get that in there since I've been thinking much on The Swoon lately!)
I loved all three books.
In this, the final book, Perry is still trying to get his tribe to safety. The atmosphere is failing, the lethal storms are getting worse, and they have word that there is a safe place to go where this phenomena is not happening. They call it the Still Blue. All of this book is trying to make this happen.
The interesting thing about it this time is that the two different worlds, the futuristic one called the Dwellers, and the rustic one called The Outsiders, must work together to make it happen. And people we thought were the bad guys may now become the good guys and the good guys are the bad guys. Well, actually there's one bad guy who will ever and always remain the very very bad guy!
We see a different side of Roar in this book. As you know (or not) he is one of my all time favorite characters and he is one angry young man in this book. His joviality is no more. It's very sad. All because of stuff that happens in book two.
Perry and Aria are working together for most of this book except for a very nail biting moment towards the end where I thought it might turn into a Romeo and Juliet sort of ending. Scary!
And then there's Cinder, who makes everything possible. Ah. Cinder. I love him too.
Things end both happy and sad, but it was a totally satisfying ending for me. Love it when that happens. But wow, I'm going to miss these characters. But it will probably be a series I'll read over and over again through the years. Also one I'll push onto anyone looking for a good science fiction type dystopian. This one is perfect!
Bottom line: I feel like I'm doing a terrible job telling you how good this is, but let's just say it one more time...I loved it!
All in all, I'm in LOVE with this series and will recommend it to everyone. From Annette's Book Spot
I couldn't help but read the entire book all in one sitting, because it drew me in right from the start and I didn't want to let go. From City of Books
The story is vivid and spellbinding, perfectly grafted to make us hope, guess and hold our breath until the very last page. From Bewitched Bookworms
