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.

a road trip across the country and about 10 books
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.
Totally obsessed with this series! I finished all three books in less than two weeks. I couldn't stop listening. The writing is great and the "forbidden" love between June and Day is sweet, exhilarating and sad all at the same time. This is a true survival story with some very young characters displaying beautiful love for their families and each other while experiencing extraordinary circumstances. I would definitely recommend this series to anyone. The narration was great as well!!
Loving books :) Quick and honest reviews.
They were not the worst. However, they both have parts of their voice that takes time to get use to but once your into the book its easily overlooked.
The ending was awesome with the many emotions and how quickly changes. It is somewhat predicable but still a great read.
This series is pretty good. This last book was hard for me to get into. Seemed like the first half lost some speed. However, the end ties up the series and makes it worth the read.
Books and more books....I hardly listen to music anymore.
So, I'm a grown a$$ man. I consider myself a manly man, and I reserve what small hints of sensitivity I have for only my wife. Other than that, it's all man and all bravado. The last book in the series had me welling up and almost had full on tears. The writing in this series is fantastic! The last book kept me from returning to work on time on lunch breaks as I could pull away from it. The narrators did such an outstanding job for all 3. After the last two chapter with June closing out the book, I was left wanting more. I want to know if day fully remembers, I want to know more about them as they return to the republic...aghhh. Time to find a new book.
Draws you in so that you need to find out how the story ends for each charector. Excellent series of three books. The narators do a wonderful job of story telling.
