Publisher's Summary

The long-awaited new novel in the New York Times best-selling Darkest Minds series, now a major motion picture. 

Five years after the destruction of the so-called rehabilitation camps that imprisoned her and countless other Psi kids, 17-year-old Suzume “Zu” Kimura has assumed the role of spokesperson for the interim government, fighting for the rights of Psi kids against a growing tide of misinformation and prejudice. But when she is accused of committing a horrifying act, she is forced to go on the run once more in order to stay alive. 

Determined to clear her name, Zu finds herself in an uncomfortable alliance with Roman and Priyanka, two mysterious Psi who could either help her prove her innocence or betray her before she gets the chance. But as they travel in search of safety and answers, and Zu grows closer to the people she knows she shouldn’t trust, they uncover even darker things roiling beneath the veneer of the country’s recovery. With her future - and the future of all Psi - on the line, Zu must use her powerful voice to fight back against forces that seek to drive the Psi into the shadows and save the friends who were once her protectors. 

From number-one New York Times best-selling author Alexandra Bracken comes a harrowing story of resilience, resistance, and reckoning that will thrill loyal fans and new listeners alike.

Not really book 4

I know the book is technically book 4 in the series, but I don't believe that is accurate. It's 5 years later, and the main character is now Zu. With a brand new narrator, and a basically different story, I did not feel this was a continuation from the other 3 books in the series. VERY politically heavy. Sure, all the other books talk about the government, but this book was far more heavy on that side of things. Ultimately, it was okay, because it was still Alexandra's writing, but I was disappointed. You can read the other three books, and leave this book out - it won't make any difference. I struggled getting through this one, I wasn't excited about the story, and I didn't have the "I can't put this down" feeling. I would have preferred a more solid "Where are they now" type ending.

One thing is for sure though, Alexandra Bracken, is a new favorite author of mine!

Narration ruins the book

What happened to Amy McFadden? It was hard to follow the book because of the narrator's droning voice. I've thoroughly enjoyed this series but I won't buy another book in the series if Traci Kato-Kiriyama is the narrator. I know that sounds harsh but the narration really did ruin this book for me. The only reason I finished the book is so I wouldn't be lost in the story should there be a book 5 and a different narrator.

This book is ehh.

Once I began The Darkest Mind series I was hooked. The characters were so incredibly lovable and I absolutely couldn’t get enough. I enjoyed the first three which were told from Ruby’s POV. Zu was such a lovable character I figured this book would be just as amazing as the first three. I was wrong. We have new characters which are likable, I just enjoyed Ruby and Liam and Vita. This book isn’t horrible but it’s not AMAZING like the others.

A better read

The book itself was amazing and a great read especially if you have been reading the whole series. However the person reading made it a mediocre book compared to is previous books. It was hard to tell the characters apart. That being said I can’t wait for another book and hope it comes soon!

Not my favorite narrator

The story was great as expected but I found the narrator a bit lacking. I’m still not sure if the boys name is Rowan or Roman. Most of the voices sounded the same and I didn’t even realize a male was talking most of the time until the he said that followed.

Would like to see the movie version

I have listened to this whole series and thought it was wonderful. I guess the movie version was just released in theaters, so hope to see it. But the book/audio is great.

Decent plot awful narrator

I honestly thought at one point that it was a computer generated voice reading this book. It truly sounds like Siri or Alexa. A narrator can make or break an audio version of a book and this one is no maker. I personally prefer audiobooks because I am still able to do things while listening. But if I have to force myself to come back to a book because the voice reading it is awful, it ruins the book for me. I grudgingly finish and then never listen to that book again. That being said, if the story were in a different voice, it would be well worth revisiting!
