I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange honest review consideration. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

The much-anticipated final instalment of the Wool trilogy.'The next Hunger Games' The Sunday Times'Thrilling, thought-provoking and memorable ... one of dystopian fiction's masterpieces alongside the likes of 1984 and Brave New World.' Daily ExpressIn the aftermath of the uprising, the people of Silo 18 are coming to terms with a new order. Some embrace the change, others fear the unknown; none have control of their fate. The Silo is still in danger.There are those set on its destruction. Jules knows they must be stopped.The battle has been won.The war is just beginning.

Ahh!! The last installment of the Silo Trilogy. This book moves pretty fast, but just like Shift, it lacks the power and the emotion of the first book in the trilogy.

This ending was fairly satisfying in light of the rest of the books. Everything is pretty much explained and the ending doesn’t have a whole lot of loose ends. I didn’t feel as connected to the characters or as invested in them as I did in the first book. I was glad that Donald finally stopped whining about his wife.

Honestly, I don’t have a whole lot of strong feelings about this book one way or another, which may say something. After the first book the writing was still good, but not nearly as compelling.

I wish I had more, but I don’t really. Go ahead and pick it up if you enjoyed the first two, it’s not great, but like I said it’s a fairly fitting ending.

  • I haven’t picked up this series yet, but I’ve been considering it. I’m glad to know the ending fits, even if the final installment isn’t great overall.
