The End of the Tripod Trilogy!

This is the final book in the Tripod Trilogy. I didn't enjoy this one as much as the others, but it's still good regardless! Of course, I had to find out what happened to the boys and whether or not the Resistance would succeed shaking control away from the alien Masters!

William Gaminara narrates all of the Tripod books, and he does a good job reading the story and distinguishing the boys from one another with various accents.

I read the prequel "When the Tripods Came" right after this in order to finish off the series.
