Natalie and Ash were separated when Natalie’s parents had her kidnapped and brought back to their rebel compound, and no matter how much Natalie begs them to let her go find Ash they don’t help her. The war between Purian Rose and Humans for Unity now has a third faction-the Sentry Rebellion. The two rebel groups need to align, but they have two different ideas for a government take-over. Ash and Natalie need to find each other and then bring everyone together and make them see a cooperative solution.
I have enjoyed this series and this is a satisfying conclusion. I did have a hard time remembering who was who in the first 100 pages, because there are so many characters and the author has three different people telling the story. It also picks up where the second book left off without a lot of bridging the story, so it took a while to remember all the major plot lines. Overall, it’s a good series and easy to recommend to those who like dystopian books.
