Part of the The Southern Reach Trilogy series
The highly anticipated third volume of the haunting, disturbing and evocative Southern Reach trilogy.
It is winter in Area X. A new team embarks across the border, on a mission to find a member of a previous expedition who may have been left behind.
As they press deeper into the unknown - navigating new terrain and new challenges - the threat to the outside world becomes only more daunting.
In this last instalment of the Southern Reach Trilogy, the mysteries of Area X may have been solved, but their consequences and implications are no less profound - or terrifying.

Review by Bernadette877
Acceptance takes yet another narrative approach [than Annihilation and Authority], using multiple viewpoint characters and moving not just forward in time, but also back to cover the period when Area X was simply the forgotten coast, full of drifters and illegal dumping. Things begin to fall into place for the reader and there are satisfying if tentative answers to be found.
