Review by HenriMoreaux
After a twist in the ending of book #1, a straight forward story in #2 here we have book #3 with another unexpected twist. <br/><br/>Sadly however, unlike the twist in #1 which was excellent, I feel this books twist leaves you wanting the turn the page to find out the ending, but then you realise you're already there. I really have enjoyed all of James Phelan's books both in the alone series & fox series, however the ending in this one? Not too keen on it.<br/><br/>Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad book, it's quite good in fact (so good I read it cover to cover in one sitting), it's better than the second, it's just let down by the ending in this readers opinion.

I've read and enjoyed this whole series of books, but I admit I was a bit disappointed with this, the final book in the series. The whole time I was reading the book questions kept popping up in my head: Who caused the attack? Why were they shooting their own men? Why was there a cover-up? Why were some chasers worse than others? What happened to the rest of the world? and I felt kind of short-changed when at the end of the series most, if not all, of these questions were still unanswered.On the whole I would recommend this series, the tension builds up really well and I found myself getting sucked into the story and couldn't put the books down.But if you like all the loose ends to be tied up at the end of a series you might be disappointed by this one!
