Publisher's Summary

Our time is almost up.
As the clock ticks closer and closer to the final Partial expiration date, humans and Partials stand on the brink of war. Caught in the middle, thousands of miles apart, are Samm and Kira: Samm, who is trapped on the far side of the continent beyond the vast toxic wasteland of the American Midwest; and Kira, now in the hands of Dr. Morgan, who is hell-bent on saving what's left of the Partials, even if she has to destroy Kira to do it.
The only hope lies in the hands of the scattered people of both races who seek a way to prevent the rapidly escalating conflict. But in their midst appears a mysterious figure, neither human nor Partial, with solemn warnings of a new apocalypse - one that none of them may be able to avert.
The final installment in the Partials Sequence is a thrill ride of epic proportions, as the last remnants of life on our planet fight to determine its final fate.

Pretty good for the most part

Would you try another book from Dan Wells and/or Julia Whelan?

Author is setting up for a book 4, I would bet. AFAIAC, Julia saves the story with her excellent narration. I am ok with the ending

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I like many of the characters. author does a good job defining them. The story is a good one. I liked the part of the human outpost near Denver. I felt it provided some relief to the dreadful circumstances. Some will find the end of the world themes sort of depressing. The characters heroically battle their way thru it.

What about Julia Whelan’s performance did you like?

I think she is great. I would think the many male voices she has to mimic, can be difficult.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

it would be a very long movie. I doubt it will ever happen.

Any additional comments?

I actually skipped some chapters in the very long middle part- the dialogue got silly and predictable. Sort of like little kids arguing sometimes.

A Disappointing Finish To A Decent Series

Dan Wells is a fabulous writer. However, I feel that he just missed the mark on this one. The book was pretty boring with only small instances of true interest. The series was promising, but I feel that the last book simply fell flat.
