The final instalment of The Unadjusteds trilogy…
THE FIGHT IS NOT OVER.
A NEW NEMESIS HAS AWOKEN.
Sinister visions of an evil entity with looming yellow eyes haunt Silver’s dreams, threatening to destroy the new world she and her friends have created. The terrifying omens push Silver to experiment with her abilities, but awaken a burgeoning thirst for more power.
As Silver walks a fine line between good and evil, her friends become wary of her intimidating abilities. She finds understanding in a sympathetic newcomer, but their deepening friendship drives an even deeper wedge between Silver and her suspicious friends.
Tragedy strikes during preparations for the final stand, bringing a terrible choice. Grief drives Silver toward reckless actions that may doom the final battle. Can she repair the relationships with her friends and control her powers before her vision becomes reality?
Due to not reading book one or two of this trilogy I also received book one and two to read before this series so I have had plenty of time to read all three in this trilogy and really absorb everything.
I did enjoy this trilogy. I found this dystopian to be very very different and unique to a lot of the dystopian stories I have read before. I praise the authors imagination!
Throughout this series we do see a lot of death, a lot of struggles and very stressful scenes which sometimes I felt fell a little flat. I didn’t feel my heart wrench or feel very emotional to some of the hardships throughout this series but i still really enjoyed my reading experience.
We see a lot of people deal with these hardships in many different ways which i wnjoyed seeing because everyone is different and copes with grief and trauma in many different ways.
Silver was a very interesting character to follow and I found her to be quite difficult sometimes. She frustrated me a lot but I could see why she was the way she was. It was very realistic and didnt make me hate her in any way. Although I did get frustrated with some of her decisions again I could see the reasons behind it. She was struggling a lot dealing with the whole worlds survival on her shoulders.
Book three was a little harder to get through because at the beginning it was very heavy on soul searching and trying to find a new normal so a lot of the action didnt really happen until about 60% into the book so it was a little slow going compared to book one or two.
This was a super solid trilogy and I did have a fun time reading it and would recommend this to people who are looking for a different take on a typical dystopian novel.
