Publisher's Summary

In the final book of John Christopher's classic series, Will Parker returns to the headquarters of the Resistance after several months in the City of Gold and Lead. He travels to Eastern Europe and the Middle East to set up resistance cells with young boys who question the power of the Tripods.
When they are able to capture one of the Tripod 'Masters', they unlock a secret that they use in attempt to finally wrest control of the earth from the Tripods, and maybe - just maybe - save humanity.

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.

Not Just for Young Adults

Having enjoyed the BBC Tripods series as a teenager, I couldn't resist trying the audiobooks. As this is a 'young adults ' series, my expectations were not high, but I was very pleasantly surprised. Although not without plot holes, the story moves forward at a pace, and young Will's excitement, enthusiasm, and rashness all make for a very engaging narrative. This is complemented by the excellent narration of William Gaminara. I thought initially to only listen to the first book, but ended up getting the whole trilogy. Highly recommended!

A whole new world.

The audio books and my kindle have opened up a whole new world to me. Having had reading difficulties throughout my early life I am now able to enter a whole realm of adventure. I have devoured the Tripods series The Pool of Fire is the third book and continues the longing to follow Will's challenges to escape; his life as a slave to discover the Tripods life style and use it against them. I never ever considered I would become a bookworm but I'm well and truly hooked and can't wait to listen to the next chapters. If you like adventure, science fiction and suspense, the whole series is a must and i'm so glad I purchased them.
