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.

I still just love these characters. And even though i was questioning for a min, I couldn't have been happier with the ending.
Just a book fool.
Overall this series is a pretty good one. If you're looking for a distopian that is actually well written, not completely predictable (and GASP no love triangle, well not really) then I totally recommend this one.
I seem to be the only one who didn't love the ending. I don't know... June just got so self-sacrificing and melodramatic there towards the end. Other then being a little frustrated with our heroine this conclusion was a wild ride that I am so glad I got on.
So I stand alone in not "loving" the ending but I didn't and hate it and most days thats all a girl can really ask for.
I recommend this series to lovers of "The Hunger Games" and "Divergent" obviously..
I loved this book along with all the other books in this trilogy. The ending is different than you would think, but I really liked it. Would so recommend this series to everyone.
Neither narrator had any depth or vision of the characters. They were reading not narrating.
Read the print edition.
Absolutely - I feel like I know these characters, that I could be talking to them on the phone
Both fabulous - both developed the emotional depth of the characters beyond my expectations.
Made me cry while driving (not a great thing!) but also gave me a lift with the final chapter.
Tremendous series, and I'm so happy that I listened to it instead of reading it. There was a sense of intimacy that came with the audio version, and I loved it.
Without sounding over the top in my praise, it is difficult for me to describe just how much I loved this series. One of the best things about it was that my feelings for the characters and the story simply grew exponentially the more I read. I felt as though I knew the world they were living in and understood the emotions of the characters. I loved the way the series ended with hope. AND I cannot say enough about the narrators. They were both amazing. At times I would read the book in between listening to the audiobook, and I would still always hear the voices of the narrators as if they were truly Day and June. Thank you for a most excellent listening experience!
Never trust anyone who doesn't enjoy reading.
Definitely top 10!!!
The ending of course!
Day's character. June's was good of course, but Steven Kaplan did a superb job with Day's character.
The ending was fantastic! Marie Lu had a great twist on YA endings.
I still have a ton of questions about what happens in the future with June and Day. But overall, the ending was fantastic!!! I can use my imagination to fill in the gaps. Marie Lu did a fantastic job with this series and with the ending. We all love series to have happy endings but this one had such a huge twist that you never anticipated.
Oh, and since June didn’t want Aden I’ll take him!
Now, if you need me you can find me, I'll be in the corner eating ice cream and crying.
This is a book worth listening to. Marie Lu has taken us through a journey and though I wished it would never end, this book is the final book of the series. I'm going to return to this series to read again and again. What a way to end an amazing series!
Love listening to books!
Hmmm... As I finished reading this I thought to myself "HEY ALLEGIANT THIS HIS HOW YOU END A BOOK SERIES!"
Kudos to Marie Lu for creating a fantastic series. The point of view for her characters *cough* (unlike Allegiant) are concise and stay with the characters throughout the series. Day and June have very different personalities which always make for interesting character interactions (ie we don't need to make a dark brooding Superman because that is what Batman is for!) The plot is fast paced and not bogged down in complicated unnecessary plot devices.
As for the ending, there were some points where I felt it unnecessary to explain everything. This book does suffer from LOTR Return of the King multiple ending syndrome. But that doesn't make its impact any less, as I find it believable the choices each character made in the end.
Overall great YA read. Will be recommending it to my friends!
I enjoyed all of the action and the split narrators for every other chapter.
The entire book was memorable! But the ending was I believe was the most memorable.
Again, I the entire book was my great and so every scene is just a part of the whole!
The end. I found it very sad.
Marie Lu has done a fantastic job with this trilogy. I could have seen it being more books in the series however. Another author just wanting a movie deal! No problem and I hope she gets one! The second book though was very short. The ending of this book left the reader wanting more. This author felt rushed in the second book and not rushed in the 3rd book until the last several chapters and than again the book was put on fast pace to be completed. The narrators were fantastic. The first book the male narrator was kind of monotone at times but he picked it up in the next two books. I do suggest this book to all of you Dystopian fans like me!
