    This series is just wow And this book I did not want it to end but since it had to all I can say is this is how a series should end Each book in this amazing trilogy is better than the last and this one is just superlative The characters and the world that is depicted here will stay with me forever The writing is stunning, the story pacy and action packed but with wonderful bursts of humour and wit The scenario of a post apocalyptic world is brilliantly imagined and you feel as if you are This series is just wow And this book I did not want it to end but since it had to all I can say is this is how a series should end Each book in this amazing trilogy is better than the last and this one is just superlative The characters and the world that is depicted here will stay with me forever The writing is stunning, the story pacy and action packed but with wonderful bursts of humour and wit The scenario of a post apocalyptic world is brilliantly imagined and you feel as if you are there One of the ways in which this series is different from anything out there is that this might be our fate if we continue to abuse the world s resources like we are currently doing This gives the books an extra thrilling, heart pounding edge From the very first page and the wonderful quote Hope was a curious thing I was hooked.One of the things I loved most about this book was how it all came together and how all the people we met along the way in The Initiation and The Expedition played a role here.I read this book in a breathless gasp, my heart in my throat the whole time, turning the pages and yet afraid of what was to come, what the characters were going to face next I literally flinched a couple of times this is the impact of this wonderful book My whole family loves this series my teenage son and daughter and even my husband who generally doesnt read fiction but he just loves this series because it is a warning of what might happen to our world in the not so distant future This series makes you think, question and resolve to change and make a difference The fact that this series appeals to different people, regardless of age or gender says something Both my children said and I couldn t agreethat this is the only series where each subsequent book read has trumped the previous one Onething among the many that we all loved was character development how each character grows in strength and self belief throughout the series, how they are real and relatable with ordinary doubts and insecurities despite being in extraordinary circumstances Loved everything really and lamenting the fact that this is the end I rarely re read books but this series is one I will be re reading often as it has made such an impact and I am loath to let go of the characters I already reread The Initiation and The Expedition while waiting for this book and it was wonderful to discover nuances I had missed and revisit things I had loved This is the best dystopian series I have ever read, far surpassing Hunger Games and the Divergent series Very highly recommended for everyone

    For fans of The Maze Runner, and Divergent, comes the last novel in the Initiation series Drayden and his friends have been through hell, only to discover that their government has been lying to them for years They become part of the resistance, to tear down the hypocrisy and cruelty A cast of new supporting characters is introduced, such as Professor Worth, undoubtedly the coolest guy ever to be seen in a dystopian novel Suffice to say, I love when novels have the characters exposing li For fans of The Maze Runner, and Divergent, comes the last novel in the Initiation series Drayden and his friends have been through hell, only to discover that their government has been lying to them for years They become part of the resistance, to tear down the hypocrisy and cruelty A cast of new supporting characters is introduced, such as Professor Worth, undoubtedly the coolest guy ever to be seen in a dystopian novel Suffice to say, I love when novels have the characters exposing lies and kicking butt at the same time This was a great conclusion to a dystopian series I will also say that this series would be great for middle school and above, as it doesn t involve a lot of cursing, there s no sex in it and the violence is very tame, with Drayden s character especially thinking through the morality questions of killing people

    This book had somewhat of a slow start There was a lot going on and it made it hard to center myself with the characters I did enjoy it as it moved further on.
