June and Day have sacrificed so much for the people of the Republic - and each other - and now their country is on the brink of a new existence. June is back in the good graces of the Republic, working within the government's elite circles as Princeps Elect while Day has been assigned a high-level military position. But neither could have predicted the circumstances that will reunite them once again. Just when a peace treaty is imminent, a plague outbreak causes panic in the Colonies, and war threatens the Republic's border cities. This new strain of plague is deadlier than ever, and June is the only one who knows the key to her country's defense. But saving the lives of thousands will mean asking the one she loves to give up everything he has. With heart-pounding action and suspense, Marie Lu's best-selling trilogy draws to a stunning conclusion.

The main character has black and white nonsense thinking- the prose is written like the Book of Mormon- soooooo melodramatic attempting to be soooooo enlightening. So many plot holes- that the only person who wouldnt question with "seriously?" every other sentance would be a 5 yr old. Nope- I take that back. 5 yr olds are good at asking "Why!?" Very frustrating to read- like watching someone with a drug addiction make bad choices for themselves for no good reason. I also detested the attempt at pseudoscience- Star Trekesque fiction (which inly Star Trek can pull off), get ready to use real science words in a nonsensicle manner. I want not just my money back, but the time I wasted listening to this junk as well.
This book and the whole triology quickly became one of my favorite books ever! Very emotional, thought provoking, action packed story! I cried a lot!
I loved the characters, especially Day! I hope these books will be made into a movie!
The whole series is amazing but this last book is awesome. The ending was bitter sweet. I loved it but I was somewhat hoping they would encounter each other on the street with her holding the hand of a 9 year old version of Day.
That I think would have really shocked his memory into focus.
I don't usually like books, but here goes.
I finished this series a couple of weeks ago, but I never wrote a review. I overall enjoyed the plot and the books themselves. It felt slow every once in a while, but that was a rare occasion. The double narration was just amazing. Perfect balance of romance and action for me. I'm excited to see the take of the series in film.
The battle between the Republic and the Colonies comes to a head in this story, with more players added. June also struggles in defining her relationship with Dae and Andon's affections. Not only is it a wonderful story, but the narrators are amazing. I enjoyed them both throughout the series and will look for other titles they've narrated. I was in tears during the last two chapters, but the ending was immensely satisfying.
I loved this book! I really enjoyed the ending. I was worried that Marie Lu was going to pull a Veronica Roth and crush my dreams at the end, but she left me hopeful and satisfied.
