Ith Liam the boy she would and did sacrifice everything for to keep alive Ruby must face the painful repercussions of having tampered with his memories of her She turns to Cole his older brother to provide the intense training she knows she will need to take down Gray and the government But Cole has demons of his own and one fatal mistake may be the spark that sets the world on fire This book is so stressful and emotionally intense but it s a great conclusion I love how everything wrapped up and my uestions were answered and it definitely brought some tears to my eyes so bittersweetI think some parts dragged on because they pretty much stayed in the same place the whole time and it took me a while to read but it was worth it The characters are so wonderful and I love seeing their relationships develop Although Ruby and Liam s relationship got frustratingI still love this series SO much and it s definitely a favorite 3 Doctors, Ambassadors, Secretaries up and my Engendering Song uestions were answered and it definitely brought some tears to my eyes so bittersweetI think some parts dragged on because they pretty much stayed in the same place the whole time and it took me a while to read but it was worth it The characters are so wonderful and I love seeing their relationships develop Although Ruby and Liam s relationship got frustratingI still love this series SO much and it s definitely a favorite 3

REVIEW Ç PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ò Alexandra Bracken

Armed only with a volatile secret proof of a government conspiracy to cover up the real cause of IAAN the disease that has killed most of America's children and left Ruby and others like her with powers the government will kill to keep contained But internal strife may destroy their only chance to free the rehabilitation camps housing thousands of other Psi kidsMeanwhile reunited w SpoilersI experienced a lot of deja vu whilst reading this so much of it was similar to the other YA dystopia I d already read There was the usual insufferable heroine and the same old world building and dynamics between teenagersadultsthe evil government It wasn t all bad though I did really enjoy most of the secondary characters and the friendshipsrelationships between them The majority of the plot was dull there was the typical teen heroine and her merry gang fighting to take down the evil system they were in The story was dragged out and slow Ruby and co spent most of their time angsting and arguing about nonsense There was very little action and plot development instead there was a lot of repetition and pointless dialoguenarration I didn t need to read Ruby moaning about Jude or Liam again and again I already knew what she was feeling the first dozen times she mentioned how upset she was about everything repeating it over and over again was unnecessary There was very little I liked about Ruby The best thing about her was her bitterness and unforgiving attitude towards people who had wronged her It made a nice change from the usual heroines who automatically forgive and forget all the bad things people have done Ruby held out longer than most it was still disappointing when she did eventually cave I would have liked her to hold on to that rage instead of being all understanding and giving undeserving people second chancesWhat I really loathed about her was her feeling she was responsible for everyone and their mother Liam and her friends made their own decisions but idiot Ruby acted like everything they did was down to her What teenager thinks like that about their friends No one feels responsible and guilty for the decisions their friends make all by themselves they have minds of their bloody own I found Ruby s way of thinking really unrealistic I especially got sick of Ruby banging on about Jude she didn t even know him that long and she acted like she d lost her first born child They were both kids he wasn t her responsibility The silly cow spent most of the book whining about Jude or how she had to look after everyone or how she was so messed up and broken She really needed to get the fuck over it I wasn t interested in her angst her martyr complex or her non stop guilt I couldn t believe how daft Ruby was thinking stress and tiredness were causing her to blank out sleepwalk and miss huge chunks of time That had never happened before when she was tired and under pressure so why would she so easily accept it as an explanation to her odd behaviour How did she not even consider Clancy was messing with her mind Why wouldn t she be a little bit suspicious of him messing with her mind It was too far fetched and contrived her not suspecting anything Cole and Ruby s speshul snowflake nobody understands us attitude was ridiculous They really needed to get over themselves all the teens were in the same boat as them but they thought their brand of powers were so much worse than everyone else s when they really weren t I would have had sympathy for them if they weren t so up themselves Ruby and Liam s romance was poorly written and developed I hated how Ruby tried to keep Liam safe and how she coddled him like he was a child she was an overprotective harpy and she made Liam look like a weakling Ruby didn t respect Liam or treat him as her eual she was never honest with him and never asked for his opinions In every conversation they had she was keeping something from him by the third book of a series I expect maturity from the protagonist Ruby worrying about Liam kissing him and occasionally having shallow conversations with him wasn t enough to convince me of their relationship Ruby had genuine and deep interactions with Cole they had an actual connection and balanced each other out well Not that I wanted them together but why was there so much effort and page time dedicated to their relationship instead of Liam and Ruby s LiamCole s sibling relationship was done well they read like genuine brothers It was sad they never made up properly before Cole died I was disappointed with Cole s death he was a major character yet he pretty much got an off page death it was lame Absolutely loathed Clancy what a prick He didn t deserve to get a clean slate he wasn t misunderstood or messed up because of the circumstances he was put in He was a stone cold bastard who was happy to use and abuse other kids he didn t even care when he caused multiple deaths He showed no remorse or guilt all he showed was self pity he wanted everything his way and didn t give a fuck who he hurt in the process He was responsible for Jude and Cole s death and probably loads of others he was an irredeemable fucker I was waiting for him to die horribly but instead he pretty much got a happy ending it was so unsatisfying The ending was anticlimactic I was looking forward to Ruby going back to Thurmond and helping to free the kids but it turned out to be rather underwhelming There was hardly any tension and not much emotion either it was all so predictableI also didn t like how pretty much all the adults throughout the series were remorseless fucks but then at the end there was suddenly a load of caring parents and soldiers Where were all the decent adults when the kids were imprisoned for years Why didn t they ever protest or help their kids Why did they blindly believe the president As if parents would just be cool with being separated from their children for years no matter what the government were saying All of it was super contrived Liam leaving Ruby in the hospital so he could chill out at a hotel and act the hero showed how little he cared for her His feelings for her were so lukewarm and even though Ruby wasn t honest with Luke it was still obvious she loved him The one sided feelings between them was another factor which made their relationship rubbish I loved the main secondary characters Zu Vida Chubbs Nico they were far entertaining than RubyLiam The minor side characters were rubbish most of the adults were one dimensional villains and the teenagers were all scared useless sheep except of course for the heroine and her chosen friends The science behind IAANthe random powersthe cure was laughable How could a chemical that affected kids so much have zero effect on adults How was it that none of the other scientistsdoctors in the country were able to figure out the cause behind IAAN It wasn t like the cause turned out to be something unusual or obscure the chemical that caused the disease was in the entire country s water supply And a brain pacemaker as a curetreatment to super powers Really It was nonsensical What happened to Lucas and the other Reds Did Lucas get back to his old self Did he find his sister and remember Sam Where did Sam end up Did she go back to her strict parents Was Clancy in love with Nico What happened to the president Him just disappearing was rubbish What happened to all the kids without parents or parents that didn t want them Did the full truth about the campstreatment of the kids ever come out In the
