Fabbers, slabbers, and fakies were dehumanizing slurs for fabricated humans. Bricks, however, was the People's favorite.
The Sentience Laws were created to protect the rights of Bricks, but the laws didn't last long. Banished to a remote gulag called the Settlement, Paul and Raine are sentenced to live the rest of their lives in the wilderness.
Escape and freedom will depend on Marcus Anderson, the man responsible for all the suffering that's been endured since the invention of biomites - the synthetic stem cells used to fabricate halfskins and Bricks. Marcus needs them in order to find the "powers that be", the man he believes is truly responsible for the world's suffering. Their journey will take them to a tiny island in the South Atlantic, where the truth is much closer than they realize. That's where they will discover the "powers that be".
And so much more.

I love to read and working on my first book. Maybe it will be on Audible someday.
I have to say that I was certainly not expecting the ending to this series the way it happened. I guess that's a good thing, though. Nothing is worse than for a book to be so obvious that you see the ending coming a mile away. Predictable is so boring.
I have enjoyed the series. The first book I was a bit miffed at how it ended, but the second book made up for it. Now for this series to end on the note that it did was just fantastic. I did take one star off though because of the fairly liberal use of foul language in the book.
David Dietz's narration was wonderful. His voices for each character remained consistent throughout the series even when showing extreme emotions, which he often had to in this book. I give David's narration five stars. Overall the book is just four stars for me because of the language.
I am at that half a century mark in years. I enjoy audiobooks,cats,rats and most days my family,not necessarily in that order!lol
David Dietz does a fine job narrating this third installment of the Halfskin series.Though there are some glitches in the audio,repeating of lines,weird sounds in the background,the sound is good.There are times I wish it would all be an even sounding audio.Yelling and my headaches don't mix and there is a LOT of yelling.We are once again in the land where if you have biotech in your body you could be turned off past the 49% ratio. There are SO many names for the different types of 'people',People,Clay,etc.The story is good.I was given this book free for an honest review.
