Feelings are kind of mixed

Overall this series has had its ups and downs in my mind. Unique yes especially after book 1 but maybe not as enjoyed for a 5 star review. I think book 2 was my favorite of this series. This one at times I wonder why the protagonist does what she does. Risk so many people . It also at times seems to get a little bit of too much. But overall the story did come together well. The epilogue was the best part.

Meh.

Narrator does an admirable job with the different voices. The protagonist is terribly irritating and foolish to the point where it takes away from the story. Book 1 was the best of the bunch. By the 3rd I could wait for it to be over.

Fantastic ending to the series

The final book in the configured series. This book answers answers you questions and toes up the series nicely. There was so much action and so many things happening, and never left you wanting for more. I enjoyed the series. Brittany did a great job with the narration.

The finale is here! And it entertains!

Listened to this story on Audible. The narrator does a good job. She gives a clear, quality performance. She fits the characters well. I'd recommend listening.

This is the final book in the Configured trilogy, so definitely go start with book 1 before diving into this finale!

I've really loved the action and fun this whole series has provided. Loved the sci-fi dystopian feel to the story. Avlyn is a strong female lead character. Her power to mentally connect to computers and such is super cool and fun.

Avyln and friends are still on the run from 2 different corrupt government types. Both enemies are doing some really crazy mood controlling type stuff; Avlyn and crew are in for some majorly dangerous situations. Avlyn is learning even more about her roots, and continues to grow as a character. The romance continues to grow as well; definitely a sweet connection going on there. It's great how much support Avlyn has, and that Avlyn generally knows when she needs help and accepts it. Still lots of action and adventure for Avlyn and her crew, so that's always entertaining and fun.

I've enjoyed this whole series! This was a great conclusion to this series. Looking forward to checking out more from Penner.

Fantastic Series!!

This is a great series. I highly recommend it. This would be a great series for teens to listen to. If you enjoy dystopian/technology, adventure, and a hint of romance then you would like this series.

Great final book.

I had already read the book and new I liked the story and was happy with how the trilogy ended. Fortunately they used a narrator up to the task.

Loved the epilogue.

The conclusion of this series...I honestly don’t know where to begin I felt that for the final book that it had a slow start to it. What I did love was seeing Avlyn’s discovery of some dark secrets and how she handled them. This girl has definitely grown and I loved that. I’m so happy that the love triangle ended quickly and wasn’t dragged out. Whew!! If you read and loved the first two books I encourage you to pick up the final book. So much happens in the final book that you definitely do not want to miss out. Great YA dystopian series.
I listened to the audiobook and I would recommend it as well.

Great Conclusion

I truly enjoyed this conclusion to the Configured Trilogy.
Jenetta Penner wraps up the story of Avlyn and her friends in an intriguing way. To say much more would spoil the story and the ending. I really liked how her ending was quite different from other books of similar nature. Each loss brought tears to my eye and each success brought me happiness. Don't miss the conclusion; the story is worth being told.
As with the books before it, the narrator is perfect. She has the right inflection capturing the mood perfectly.

I received a copy from the author for review but all opinions are my own.

A brilliant end to this trilogy

This has been a really good series. The narrator is great at putting expression in her voice and where I'm not normally keen on female narrators doing male voices. This narrator Brittany Goodwin does mens voices really well. Set in a dystopian future where humans aren't allowed to feel. Babies are given away to higher level families and humans in level 1 are thought as lesser humans. A technology based war is happening. Avalyn and her twin brother Ben are the only hope for peace. A brilliant series from Jenetta Penner and definitely worth a listen.
I revived a copy of this book from the author and this review is my own opinions.

2.75 STARS ★★✬✩✩

This book is for you if… you’ve enjoyed the series. Sci-Fi x YA enthusiasts might like this. The series, instead of picking up throughout its curse, got a bit worse with every book.

⤐ Overall.
You know those audiobooks where you don't see the need to go back when you didn't pay attention for a while? Yeah, this was one of 'em.



I have, by all means, nothing to say about this book. Everything I’ve criticised has been criticised in my reviews for Configured and Immersed .

I’m just so meh about this book - and now the series as a whole - I’m not even in the mood nor could I possibly muster the energy to rant about this. That’s how mediocre this was. The entire series lost some of its glow with this final instalment if I’m being honest. It must come as a shock to those who’ve read other reviews. I’m shocked, too. But tastes vary and that’s okay. Just don’t @ me because I’m not glorifying Actualized.

Eventful

There has been a bit of a gap between my listening to this and the first 2 books in the series, so I was grateful for the 'breadcrumbs' left by the author for those like me who needed a reminder for what had happened so far.

I liked the conclusion, but found it difficult to get my head around what was going on in the 'final battle' - I would have liked more details about what Eylure had turned into post event, too
